Description of problem:
Please consider making disk druid able to be used after installation. I
like the way disk druid enables you to easily add a disk and this would be
very useful afterwards if you were adding larger disks. I usually use
cfdisk for this but it was recently removed from the util-linux package and
the RH maintainer suggested asking the anaconda people to provide this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use disk druid in installer
Actual Results: 2.not available after
Expected Results: would like it available after
I feel that disk druid would be very useful in adding and/or repartitioning
after installation. Perhaps this could be in the future combined with LVM
and online resizing to have a graphical or curses way of resizing
partitions. (Sort of like a Partition Magic like tool for RH Linux)
Assigning to msw because this relates to his work on LVM.
