rescue mode: add filesystem label to partition chooser
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem: In rescue mode, the dialog box "System to Rescue" should
list the filesystem labels (if any) as well as the partitions. Also, the text
"What partition holds the root ..." should read "Which partition hold the root
..." [a minor grammar correction.]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. "boot: linux rescue" on a aystem with more than one installed Fedora system
2. Advance to the dialog box "System to Rescue"
The partitions are listed only by name (hda3,hdb2, etc.)
The filesystem labels, if any, should appear in addition to the partition name.
I often use tune2fs to set the ext3 label to be the release name or number.
This helps me identify which system is which.
Committed to Rawhide. Please test with FC6 test 2.
"rawhide report: 20060629 changes" says that anaconda-188.8.131.52-1 has the
change. However, FC-development-i386-rescuecd.iso of 2006-06-29 with sha1sum
de6e2ccb329759ebd7f20d659c4d6ead3c2fa424 still shows just the partition name
(such as "hda7") and no ext3 label (such as "/fc1" on my system.)
I'll test again at FC6test2, but I thought that "committed to Rawhide" plus
appearing the "rawhide report" meant that the changed version was supposed to be
available in the packaged rescuecd.
Yes, this should be in there. I will test this week and make sure it's working
Printing the ext3 filesystem label is missing from the "System to Rescue" dialog of
FC-development-i386-rescuecd.iso 2006-Jul-06 02:57:07 [PDT?] 78.7M
I see a one-column list of the nine systems I have installed (hda7, hda8, hda9,
hda10, hda11, hda12, hdb7, hd10, hdb9 [yes, the last two partitions are not in
ascending cylinder order]) but no labels.
Yeah, that patch was wrong. Committing a new and tested patch that works for
both regular partitions and LVM.
Confirmed: works for me in anaconda-184.108.40.206-1.
