Description Davide Bolcioni 2001-04-24 19:41:39 UTC
When upgrading from 7.0, the GUI install notices that my swap is below
twice RAM (511 MB instead of 512, oh well) and offers the option to create
swap. However, I have enough partitions to cause the rest of the dialogue
on the right to fall off the bottom so I don't know if I have the option
not to create more swap (which I would pick in this case).

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-04-24 19:55:50 UTC
Request for enhancement: Allow the user to create a new swap partition if they
have the disk space to do so.  In other words, don't make them have to create a
swap file if they have room for a new swap partition.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-04-25 15:29:10 UTC
I think the problem being reported is that the packing of the widgets is such
that if you have enough valid partitions that the list pushes the option to not
create a swapfile off the window, correct?

Comment 3 Davide Bolcioni 2001-04-25 16:49:46 UTC
Yes, that's exactly the problem. It does not look like an enhancement to me, as
it leaves no other option beyond creating swap if one is to proceed with the

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-04-26 20:09:39 UTC
Oh, sorry.  I thought you were talking about a different screen.  Basically, the
partition list should be inside a scroll box.  Then it could scroll down for as
far as you need it to.

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-04-27 19:24:39 UTC
Fixed in cvs.  The list can now scroll down for as many partitions as you have.
 Thanks for your report.
