Description Jan Stodola 2016-03-09 06:47:49 EST
Description of problem:
If there are unformatted and LDL DASD disks on the system, anaconda running in graphical mode shows two same dialog windows asking to format unformatted and then LDL DASD disks using dasdfmt. Since the windows are same, it is not clear which dialog asks to format LDL /unformatted disks. Since text mode is going to ask just once (bug 1269955), we should do the same in GUI mode.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have a system with unformatted and LDL DASD disks
2. run manual graphic installation
3. select all disks and go to the custom partitioning spoke

Actual results:
Two same dialog windows for unformatted and LDL DASD disks

Expected results:
One dialog for all unsupported/unusable DASD disks
Comment 2 Jan Stodola 2016-07-18 05:28:35 EDT
There is just one dialog window to dasdfmt all unformatted/LDL DASD disks, tested in both GUI and text mode.

There is an issue with no feedback while formatting DASD disks in GUI mode, which is reported as bug 1335465.

Tested with anaconda-

Moving to VERIFIED.
