Description Roland McGrath 2007-07-16 20:00:56 UTC
When using the installer partitioning interface, it would be nice if for
existing partitions and LVs with filesystems, it showed their e2label text along
with the fs type in the list.

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2007-08-08 20:15:06 UTC
Which dialog and list are you referring to?  Is this in the text mode interface
or the graphical interface?

Comment 2 Roland McGrath 2007-08-08 20:23:54 UTC
I was referring to the top-level all-partitions list/menu in the graphical
interface (the first thing you get to for "custom partitioning").  I'm not sure
I've ever seen the text version of that.  Really, it would be nice for any place
that mentions "/dev/sda23 ext3" to say "/dev/sda23 ext3 LABEL=/foobar".

The top-level menu is what I really noticed the lack in.  On my test machines, I
make oodles of /boot-sized partitions and the rest of the disk in LVM PVs. 
Whenever I'm doing a test install, I have to remember which of the many little
same-sized partitions I was using for which install's /boot.  e2label is ideal
for this.  (I'm not really looking to get fancy specifying anything by label or
anything.  I just want to minimize the keystrokes when I do it all by hand and
now have to go rooting around to check what's on each partition since I can't
remember through a reboot which ones I just assigned to what. ;-)

Show labels in graphical partitioning UI

This patch adds the label column for graphical instalation. I'm not sure about
text mode install because the UI would become a little crowded with stuff. The
label is accessable through the edit command anyway.
