Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 6
Component/s: Userspace


After create an ISO image with wind river linux, with the following configuration, the auto installation will failed when disk size is on VM:
Mem: 2G
Harddisk: IDE 50G

I've put the error log in attachment.

After input boot partition size to 500M, and the default swap size, then we select the default root partition size('-1' means the rest of the disk), it'll failed to create root partition.
If we set the root partition to 40000(not -1), it will be OK. Or if we set the VMs disk to 30GB, it will be OK too,


set the root partition to 40000(not -1)
or set the VMs disk to 30GB

Steps to Reproduce

1, build a iso image with the following configuration:
configure --enable-board=intel-xeon-core-32 --enable-kernel=standard --enable-rootfs=glibc_std+debug --enable-jobs=3 --enable-parallel-pkgbuilds=3 --with-rcpl-version=0002 --enable-bootimage=iso --enable-checkout-all-layers --enable-reconfig --enable-target-installer=yes --enable-rm-work=yes
2, config a VM project with 2G mem, 50G IDE Harddisk.
3, boot iso image with VM
4, when select size of boot partition, input 500M instead of default
5, select defaut swap partition and root partition size
6, then we'll see the error.

I've setup a vnc server can see the issue easily, if need, I'll share it(
