Description of problem:
Upon installation of a new drive (hard drive, especially - though it would be
nice if capability was available for removable media), Kudzu should allow the
user to use a Disk Druid type utility to partition, format, and create mount
points for their new disks.  Since it is available in Anaconda, users may expect
the functionality to also be present upon boot up (it would be very nice). 
Windows 2000 informs the user when it finds a new hard drive and tells them that
Disk Manager can be used to make the drive available.

To test to see if this feature was in Rawhide Kudzu, I added a 4.3G EIDE drive
to my workstation.  Booted up.  No utilities were present to manage this drive.
 Upon checking /etc/sysconfig/hwconf, I had found that Kudzu knew that the
device exists and the parameters of the device.

Not going to be fixed in kudzu. Requires pre-existence of some graphical
partitioning/disk management thing.
Comment 2 Michael Lee Yohe 2003-09-15 17:44:00 EDT
Can you not incorporate some of Anaconda's graphical bit to do the task?
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-09-15 17:49:53 EDT
Possibly, but that would need to be done as a separate standalone tool.
