Description of problem:
When I select a partition in anaconda and click "Edit", I'm shown the filesystem label.  However, if I edit a volume group and then edit a logical volume, anaconda doesn't show the filesystem label.  It would be nice to add that information.

While I understand that UUIDs are now used rather than labels, it's still useful for users to have lables on their partitions when making decisions about resizing or removing partitions.
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2008-11-04 11:58:56 EST
We definitely do this.  If the device has a label, it should appear right after "Original File System Type" beside the description "Original File System Label".  Are you sure the filesystem on the logical volume has a label?  My default install from just the other day had no label because of the use of UUIDs now.
Comment 2 Gordon Messmer 2008-11-11 11:55:45 EST
I apologize Chris, for wasting your time.  At some point in testing I must have nuked the label and not realized it.
