RFE : default partitions
Last modified: 2008-07-11 21:08:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Anaconda should include some default partition layout for different kind of
Fedora Project actually suggests to people to create a /home partition (see
doc.fp.o ). But not all people knows about this documentation or about that kind
Anaconda could give multiple default installation type, such as home, server,
high-secured installation, etc...
We actually used to have these different types of installation classes - Server,
Workstation, Custom, etc. - around the FC5 timeframe. What we discovered was
that most everyone went for a Custom install (we could tell this by looking at
the install class in exception reports) so there really wasn't much point in
offering the different classes and keeping the complicated code to manage that
Having a default /home partition is actually being tracked by bug 150670.
