|Summary||0007622: Can not install on system with HFS partition|
|Description||If you have an HFS partition on your system, even if you don't select it to be mounted, Anaconda dies with an error that the hfs-utils RPM isn't on the install DVD and installation is impossible. This happens with both the DVD (regular not Everything) and Net Install CDROM.|
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Have a Mac HFS partition on your computer.|
2. Try to install CentOS.
3. YAY WE IS ON TEH FAILBOAT!!
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Correction: the problem RPM is hfs-tools|
hfsplus-tools rather - which doesn't even seem to be a valid CentOS package. Even the Everything DVD doesn't have it.
Changing the partition IDs of my HFS partition to '1b' (VFAT Hidden) temporarily didn't help, the bad RPM still gets called.
yes, unfortunately it doesn't work on Mac computers.
I had to build the hfsplus-tools package as a requirement for livecd-tools (http://people.centos.org/arrfab/CentOS7/LiveMedia/RPMS/).
Problem is that RHEL7 doesn't target Apple machines, and anaconda/python-blivet need to be patched (but do we want to modify a base package like Anaconda ?)
Worth reading : https://access.redhat.com/discussions/658253
OTOH, we can try to create a LiveCD/media that would have the python-blivet patch integrated in the live environment (so not in the package itself) but I don't have such machine to test.
