Description Ruediger Landmann 2010-07-26 02:26:11 EDT
The basic storage path now skips the filter UI and does not filter any discs, therefore avoiding situations where the disk with the MBR was filtered out.
Comment 2 Ruediger Landmann 2010-07-26 03:02:59 EDT
Updated the end of section 9.5 to say 

"If you select Basic Storage Devices, anaconda automatically detects the local
storage attached to the system and does not require further input from you.
Proceed to Section 9.6, “Setting the Hostname”. "

and the beginning of section 9.9 to say 

"If you selected more than one specialized storage device on the storage
devices selection screen (refer to Section 9.5, “Storage Devices”), anaconda
asks you to select which of these devices should be available for installation
of the operating system, and which should only be attached to the file system
for data storage. If you selected only basic storage devices, or only one
specialized storage device, anaconda does not present you with this screen."

Fixed in build 0-79

Good.

I believe this text refers to the screen where you have 2 columns of disks
and can move them form left to right, to select which ones to use, right ?

In that case this text is incorrect, this part is unchanged. This screen will still be shown in basic storage mode if the system has more then 1 disk. The problem / confusing the change fixes is that there were 2 disks selection screens, even in basic storage mode. We do however still need 1 disk selection screen (the second), when there is more then 1 disk in the system.

Regards,

Hans

p.s.

If I've misunderstood the second part, can you please provide a link to the latest draft of the installation guide, so that I can better place it ?

Thanks Hans -- I can see where I went wrong. Should be fixed in build 0-80; section 9.9 reverted to:

"If you selected more than one storage device on the storage
devices selection screen (refer to Section 9.5, “Storage Devices”), anaconda
asks you to select which of these devices should be available for installation
of the operating system, and which should only be attached to the file system
for data storage. If you selected only one storage device, anaconda does not present you with this screen."
