Re: Anaconda bug when resizing NTFS partition?

It seems a bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=431124 , try use ntfsresize http://www.linux-ntfs.org/doku.php?id=ntfsresize before you start the installation.

I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this but I ran into an issue installing F9 on my wife's laptop. During the NTFS partition resizing process the progress bar went back and forth rapidly and there was no disk activity. After going to the console and checking 'top' I noticed that anaconda and Xorg were eating up all the CPU and leaving nothing for ntfsresize. I 'renice'd Anaconda and Xorg to 19 and ntfsresize to 1 and it made progress but it was still very slow.

In the end everything worked out fine but if I was a novice it would have been a very frustrating (well actually it was) and BAD user experience. Can the installer be modified in some way to prevent this from happening or is this just a plain old bug?

The system is a HP/Compaq Presario V5000 with an AMD Turion ML-32 1.8GHz and ATI Radeon M200 chipset.

Thanks,
Richard
