after resize I get a error that the partition is too small

Bug #218694 reported by Michael Vogt on 2008-04-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

During a dvd install ubiquity offered me to resize my disk. I did that and pushed the slider to the maximum right it allowed me (5,4 GB for hardy in some yellow/red; 2,2GB Ubuntu 8.04 without color).

It looks like it allowed me change the size to a smaller size than it actually requires and gave me a (untranslated) error message that the size of the partition is too small and that it needs 4740861440 bytes on "/". Then it offered me to go back and I am in the manual partition editor now.

(There is also a small usability bug here. Because the image had a test install of 8.04 already its not obvious to me what space I allocated for the new install and what for the existing parition).

Hm, it just locked up when I tried to open firefox to attach the partman log (384MB not enough RAM? bad RAM?). I will try to reproduce to attach the log.

I think this is probably fixed by this change in ubiquity 1.8.6:

  * Fix partition_too_small check only to warn about partitions that are not
    free space, are not marked as "do not use", and are marked for use with
    a filesystem.

... but would appreciate retesting once daily builds with that version are available.

I believe I've got this bug again (still). I suspect that a new problem (See Bug #769350) opened up the path to this one. Screen shots and logs in that bug.
