hello. we are seeing a problem with autoyast on 9.1 where device entries for hard drive partitions are missing. i mentioned it briefly in a pervious post:
as an example of the problem, autoyast is going to install onto hda using hda1 as boot, hda2 as swap, hda3 as root. when trying to format the file systems, an error will come up saying that it could not format. we have found that the device entry for just that partition is missing, but `fdisk -l` shows all three partions on the disk.
so /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda[3-9] exist, but /dev/hda2 does not. manually creating the device node (eg, `mknod /dev/hda2 b 3 2`) fixes the problem and autoyast can continue.
anyone else see this? what can i do to further debug the problem?
