Description Emmanuel Galanos 2002-02-13 15:22:00 UTC
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.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2002-02-13 19:23:50 UTC
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 22:54:03 UTC
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 16:25:33 UTC
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 2002-04-09 00:52:46 UTC
Too late for this release, will revisit for a future release
