ks.cfg (kickstart) - partitioning fails
 
Hi.

I'm using the following partitioning commands in ks.cfg and it is working fine.

Code:

clearpart --all
part / --fstype ext3 --size=1 --grow
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=20 --asprimary
part /var/log --fstype ext3 --size=6000
part /var/spool/squid --fstype ext3 --size=3000 --bytes-per-inode=1024
part /tmp --fstype ext3 --size=3000
part swap --size=1024

I'd like to increase the size of the /var/log, /var/spool/squid and /tmp partitions, so I tried changing the commands to the following (doubling the sizes).

Code:

clearpart --all
part / --fstype ext3 --size=1 --grow
part /boot --fstype ext3 --size=20 --asprimary
part /var/log --fstype ext3 --size=12000
part /var/spool/squid --fstype ext3 --size=6000 --bytes-per-inode=1024
part /tmp --fstype ext3 --size=6000
part swap --size=1024

But when the kickstart runs, it fails with the following error message.

Error Partitioning

Could not allocate requested partitions:

Press OK to reboot your system.
Is there some restrictions as to the size of the partitions or the --size / --bytes-per-inode combination?
Any help is appreciated. :)
