text-based fdisk UI confuses some
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:50:17 EDT
Suggested installer enhancement.
In the classes I teach, the most common UI confusion for students while
doing a text-based install happens during disk partitioning. If they
want to use fdisk to repartition the disk, they're presented with a ncurses
dialog which highlights their drive and has three buttons: "OK", "Edit",
At this point the mistake most of them make is to select "OK", which sends
them straight on to Disk Druid for mount point selection. What they really
wanted was "Edit", to drop them to a fdisk prompt.
The process probably needs to be clarified somehow.
Hmm... we should possibly consider going to using Next/Back as opposed to
OK/Back generally throughout the TUI install.
Deferring to future release.
