Summary: Install source hard disk - Partitioning reading fstab
screws up
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.2
Version: Final
Platform: i586
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.2
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Installation
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:
Gecko/20091222 SUSE/3.5.7-1.1.1 Firefox/3.5.7

During install with install source of hard disk of 11.2 I read the partition
table from the existing (10.3) installation. One of the partitions defined is
the partition I use for install images / install software. The partitioner
defined this partition. This read-in partition definition cannot be edited or
deleted as the partitioner says the partition is in use.

Install then crashes as the partition is already mounted (as it's the
installation source).

The partition is defined as non-auto-mount & mount-RO.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a partition on the hard disk as install source
2. Install over existing Linux installation
3. Read existing partition definitions in partitioner
Actual Results:
Partitioner crashes as partition is already mounted (as install source)

Expected Results:
Partitioner should either ignore this partition definition when reading in the
table, or should not mount it (or both).

Partitioner should warn of the conflict & the action.

There is no workaround apart from manual setup of the partitions, which can be
slow and error prone if there are a lot of them,
