Description Emmanuel Galanos 2002-02-13 10:22:00 EST
Description of Problem:
Using a space in the mount point in Disk druid produces an entry in the
/etc/fstab with a space rather than escaping with a \040 . This obviously
causes the entry to not work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7.2.90 beta1

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try and create mount point for partition in Disk druid with space (eg
"/Windows 98"

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
Bliss and happiness.

Thanks for catching this, we had intended to not allow spaces in mount points in
the first place and it slipped through our mount point sanity checking routine.
Comment 2 Emmanuel Galanos 2002-02-13 17:54:03 EST
I would request that you do not block this, but just use the escape
sequence in /etc/fstab . No need to unnecessarily limit someone.
Comment 3 Jay Turner 2002-03-07 11:25:33 EST
Changing this to be an enhancement request.  With the current code, we are
preventing the use of spaces in the mount point label.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2002-04-08 20:52:46 EDT
Too late for this release, will revisit for a future release
