Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 621490
Can't specify custom value for shrinking filesystem
Last modified: 2011-05-19 08:31:56 EDT
Description of problem:
I prepared system with ext4 partition created on whole disk.
During installation I tried to shrink this device (due to verification of Bug 602442), however I wasn't able to change non-zero default value (it was 353 MB in my case). If I set different size, it was ignored and default value was used instead.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Seems to be blocker to me, however I can't evaluate real impact to the customers needs and expectations.
Please attach logs when reporting bugs.

Sorry! logs attached.
However I found the issue. I used 'Alt+S' keyboard shortcut for 'Shrink' button to submit 'Volume to Shrink' dialog, user defined value is ignored in this case.
We'll look into it, though I do not believe this is blocker material. It does not prevent installation.
Did you try to set the value higher or lower than 353? It will not let you shrink it any lower than the minimum size of the partition.

Yes, I did.

... set the value higher than 353. :)
Ends up you need to call .update() on the spinbuttons to make sure they have the latest value.
In Snap #2 changing the size of the partition and then using Alt+S works as expected.
