Description of problem:
When installing a system from the live environment, the liveuser desktop is configured to automount new disks. During install, when you complete the format stage, the liveuser desktop will attempt to mount the newly created partitions. This is just an awkward user experience to have new windows popping up while you're attempting the install.
I don't recall seeing this behavior until recent F-12 live images.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot a live image on a bare metal system
2. Click "Install to hard drive"
3. Proceed through install past partitioning
the liveuser's nautilus will open up new windows and attempt to mount newly created partitions
Perhaps nautilus could be quiesced while installing so not to open up dialogs interfering with the install process.
Sounds like dev-disks might have changed what it's looking like for "don't run"? anaconda is run under devkit-disks --inhibit which should be stopping things from mounting.
Thanks Jeremy. This is an unpleasant experience that will confuse live image users. I'm requesting review for this issue for the F12Blocker list.
