Description Derek Anderson 2004-10-25 11:10:45 EDT
Description of problem:
On my test system hda1 is /boot, hda2 is /, hda3 is swap.
Look for the devices in Uninitialized Entities:
- hda1 is not visible.  This is correct based on the requirement that
we don't want people to blow away their /boot partition.
- hda2.  Under Properties the Mount Point: says "Not Mounted". Expect
to see a "/"
- hda3.  Displaying as Filesystem Type: of "boot".

Comment 1 Jim Parsons 2004-10-28 15:46:11 EDT
The code that queries for swap partition will have to be changed from
using `fdisk -l` to `swapon -s` I suppose. Still investigating one
other hopefully robust approach.
Comment 2 Jim Parsons 2004-11-19 00:39:30 EST
Now swapon is checked as well as /proc/swaps for swap partition. Also,
/etc/mtab is checked as well as /proc/mounts for mount status. If a
disk partition is mounted at '/', then the mount point field contains
a '(Root Partition)' label to alert the user.

These fixes are in 0.9.12-1.0
Comment 3 Derek Anderson 2004-11-19 16:16:11 EST
Verified in system-config-lvm-0.9.12-1.0.

The swap partition is no longer displayed in Uninitialized Entities.
The root partition is labeled as "Mount Point: / (Root Partition)"
