Description David Timms 2008-04-22 11:52:52 UTC
Description of problem:
The create / resize lvm dialogs show the number of extents by default. The
number of people who understand what that means - and can work out what size
that might actually mean wouldn't be that big.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-lvm-1.1.4-1.0.fc9.noarch {and one in f8}.

How reproducible:
yes.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. sy-co-lvm
2. create a new lv, or resize and existing.
  
Actual results:
Dialog defaults to the unit of extents.

Expected results:
Dialog defaults to the unit of Gigbytes, at least until we all have TB disks ;-)

Additional info:
The only reason I could see to default to extents is for assessing technical
performance - but this is a user {admin} dialog.

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Comment 2 David Timms 2009-07-15 13:57:12 UTC
This still needs doing. Should be part of S-c-tools cleanup.

Comment 3 Marek Grac 2009-08-12 13:27:50 UTC
Changed from extends to gigabytes
