Description Thornton Prime 2001-07-06 19:05:29 UTC

Description of problem:
Allow user to change fs type for pre-existing Linux partitions.

How reproducible:
Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Partition disk with fdisk
2. Select mountpoints


Actual Results:  No place to specify ext3 or reiserfs as filesystem type.


Expected Results:  It would be nice to be able to select filesystem type
for linux partitions created with fdisk rather than requiring that they be
ext2.

For that matter, it would be nice to be able to change the filesystem type
in DiskDruid without having to delete the partition.
