Description Wayne Carruthers 2010-06-12 03:02:20 EDT
Description of problem:

Script Sequence illogical

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Anaconda requests select disks then goes off wanting machine name, root password then time zone before going to the next stage of disk formatting etc

This is illogical and wastes time waiting for CD/DVD

The above 3 items should be prior to going into disk type & formatting

Expected results:

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2010-06-12 10:13:00 EDT
The first bit of disk selection is required to be early because we need to know which disks to consider when looking for upgradeable installations.  Then, we try to put as much stuff as possible before applying partitioning so there's fewer things to cause bugs before we modify hard drives.  The order of major items in anaconda is really pretty much forced to be the way it is now.
