I want to install without creating an lvm system
Without getting into a discussion of the pros and cons of lvm,
which is not the point of this thread; I want to install fedora 4
into one regular primary partition.
Is there a boot parameter, or other secret option
on their install disk to make this happen?
I tried this, and it didn't work.
Installed Fedora as is,
logged in, copied all the files to a second hard drive, logged out,
deleted the boot and lvm partitions that Fedora created,
made a new linux partition, mkfs ext3, copied all the files back
(preserving links and permissions etc), set up the loader, changed fstab,
and dog gone it almost works!
I get to the login screen, but when I log in it has an error.
"Can't create session, internal error."
I get the same message trying to do a failsafe terminal login.
So I literally can't get in, and when I look around
with my rescue disk, I don't see anything amiss.
Anyways, what is the easiest way to run in a regular partition?
