finds storage devices after it's already found them
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:23:39 EDT
Description of problem:
As a followup to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=594803:
- I select 'Basic storage devices'
- It shows me a list of (one) drive(s)
- I pick it, and hit 'Next'
- I then get a 'Finding storage devices...' dialog.
It appears to odd to be finding storage devices after, from all appearances, it's already found them.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Well, the first time we've just run through udev's list of devices. The second time - when you see the dialog - we're inspecting all the devices to see what partitions and filesystems are on them, building and tearing down RAID devices, etc. That's the slow part and really needs some sort of progress indicator, but it's hard to decide what to put there that doesn't sound overly technical.
Perhaps change the second one to 'Inspecting storage devices...'? I dunno.
There's still a little time before string freeze, and this has always bugged me. I'll try to come up with a fix in the next week and get it in.
In snap #7 I see a dialog that says "Examining storage devices" instead of the "Finding storage devices" in earlier snapshots. Moving to VERIFIED.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
