Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 481712
Usability: anaconda's "custom partition setup" window should be resizable (at least on the Live CD)
Last modified: 2009-10-02 04:22:52 EDT
Description of problem:
When you use the anaconda "custom partition setup" window, you are presented with a graphical representation of the disks on your system, plus a textual representation of the current "layers" (RAID, LVM, partitions...)
That window has a restricted size and if several disks are present, the area left for textual representation becomes seriously small.
In a LIVE CD setup scenario, available screen area may be much larger than the default window size. Unfortunately, the window in question is not resizable, so the screen area cannot be used to get a better view.
Making the partitioning window resizable (without making the graphics scalable) would help.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda of Fedora 10
*** Bug 493571 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
What I plan to do with this is to get rid of the ability to re-size the custome screen. The idea is to have the only the currently selected device showing in the bar view. This will mean that you will have a small bar view and the rest of the window for the tree view. Pls check back with this bug on f13.
This is solved for f13. its in rawhide.
