Description Joshua Daniel Franklin 2005-03-01 17:38:33 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050224 Firefox/1.0.1 Fedora/1.0.1-1.3.1

Description of problem:
As reported in bug #144012, the default naming scheme of
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-XXX filesystem names are too long for normal df
output, which cause problems with logwatch (and other custom scripts that parse df output).

I suggest changing the default scheme to vg00 which creates a mnemonic with the related commands (vgdisplay, etc.) and matches the man page examples more closely.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run installer
2. Use autopartition
3. Look at default naming scheme

The problem is that vg isn't very obvious.  VolGroup is the shortest thing that
was considered relatively obvious.  You really want to be using df -P in scripts
anyway (for this reason... some of the cciss devices can tickle problems like
this as well)
Comment 2 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2005-03-15 02:30:11 EST
Will you be renaming vgdisplay to VolGroupDisplay, too, then? 

Obviously there are trade-offs with vg00 vs. VolGroup00, but I'm
thinking the vg mnemonic would actually make it more obvious to
the average Linux admin reading fstab or man pages. The only place
I might find VolGroup00 more helpful would be in installing using
LVM for the first time--but then, I should have read up on it 
and know what I'm doing.
