Description Marian Ganisin 2010-08-05 09:15:57 UTC
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):
RHEL6.0-20100730.5
anaconda-13.21.66-1.el6.i686

Additional info:
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.

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2010-08-05 13:30:33 UTC
We'll look into it, though I do not believe this is blocker material.  It does not prevent installation.

Comment 5 Brian Lane 2010-11-19 17:15:00 UTC
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. :)

Comment 8 Brian Lane 2011-01-11 19:55:00 UTC
Ends up you need to call .update() on the spinbuttons to make sure they have the latest value.

Comment 10 Alexander Todorov 2011-04-01 15:10:20 UTC
In Snap #2 changing the size of the partition and then using Alt+S works as expected.
