Package: debian-installer
Severity: important

Installer was unable to mount second of two JFS volumes

I have 2 JFS volumes: for / and for /home.
Installer had problems with mounting both of them in unpredictible way,
so I ended up with formatting the root partition (sda5) and not mounting
/home in the installer.
The log on the console 4 said something about not being able to mount
XFS (sic!). So I installed using following technique:
1. step through all installer screens up to part man
2. use /dev/sda5 as jfs
3. do not use /dev/sda7
4. go to console && modprobe -r xfs
5. go back to installer and proceed with formatting /dev/sda5
6. be happy debian user again =)

# parted /dev/sda p
Disk /dev/sda: 200GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos

Number  Start   End    Size    Type      File system  Flags
 1      32,3kB  140GB  140GB   primary   fat32        boot, lba
 2      140GB   200GB  60,0GB  extended               lba
 5      140GB   150GB  10,0GB  logical   jfs          boot
 6      150GB   152GB  1999MB  logical   linux-swap
 7      152GB   200GB  48,0GB  logical   jfs

ps: thanks for your great work.

i,

Thanks for your report.
Closing as it's an installation report from a debian installer version
which isn't supported anymore.
Feel free to test and report any issues against the current debian
installer release (Squeeze RC1) which supports more hardware and also
it's improved.
Thanks!
