Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 484983
Clicking on a Logical Volume in disk druid edits the Volume Group
Last modified: 2009-10-02 04:44:05 EDT
Description of problem:
This is a usability issue stemming from the separate handling of LVM volumes in disk druid. If you double click an LV in the bottom pane, instead of editing the LV as you might expect, you are instead presented with a new window displaying the volume group. In order to actually edit the LV you clicked on, you need to find it again and click edit.
Given that LVM is the default in Fedora, it should really be a first-class citizen in disk druid. There should be no separate window for editing logical volumes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Double click on an LV in disk druid
User is displayed options to edit the volume group.
User is displayed options to edit the logical volume they clicked on.
If we don't have a separate window for each LV the thing would be a big huge mess because we would have to list all the LVs in the VG. I don't like the idea of a template that gets filled each time you choose an LV either as it does the same as the pop up window. With the pop up window having the extra characteristic that it draws attention to the user to the new thing that appeared in the screen.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This is more like rawhide.
Additionally, I't will not be present in f12.
Somthing I have been working on http://jgranado.fedorapeople.org/anaconda/ui/videos/direct_lv_edit. It should make its way to f13.
It in rawhide. It will be present in anaconda-12.33 and over.
