Description Michael Schwendt 2002-03-23 14:34:01 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020314

Description of problem:
Disk Druid's partition "Edit" dialog does not contain a partition's device name
anywhere. As a matter of convenience, while editing a partition (mount point,
format options, ...) the user should always see the partition's device name
somewhere in the edit dialog itself.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
In Disk Druid, select an existing partition and click the "Edit" button.

Actual Results:  The opened dialog does not contain the device name of the
selected partition anywhere. And when the dialog hides that part of the
partition list where the user has selected a partition, the only way to find out
the current partition name is to go back by clicking "Cancel".

Expected Results:  The partition "Edit" dialog should contain the partition's
device name (such as /dev/hdb8) somewhere near the top, so the user can always
see which partition is edited.
