[Bug 42003] Re: no root file system

Originally, I ran the program from within the gui installer on the Live disk metioned above.

However, this is probably not a gparted problem.

I re-ran the install using the ubuntu-6.06-beta2-install-i386.iso and used the standard 'debian' installer with manual partitioning.

When I tried the same layout I got the same error message, 'No root filesystem', from the good old curses environment as well.

Next I made a /boot parition in ext2 with the rest of the file system in reiserfs and everything worked as expected.

The drives are both western digital: WDC WD800GD-75FL

Here's fdisk output:

tyler at ponderosa:~$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda

Here's functioning fstab:

tyler at ponderosa:~$ cat /etc/fstab
