Description Dave Malcolm 2004-09-09 17:49:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
When autopartitioning, anaconda creates logical volumes with names
such as LogVol00, LogVol01 etc.

It might be easier for the sysadmin if they had names such as
"LogVolSwap" for the swap partition and "LogVolRoot" for /

On the other hand, I guess this could get misleading if the function

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
whatever was in FC3-re0908.0

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do an install, select automatic partitioning
2. Wonder at a later date what the logical volumes do

It's misleading if the function changes, it's nearly impossible to
handle sanely UI-wise, too (changing the name when you change the
mountpoint is ugly ugly ugly).  Doing something simple like is
currently done for the suggested and then allowing people to change it
to whatever they like works better.
