Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6447
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:39:15 EST
Bug reports already submitted for problems, now suggestions
* It would be simpler if the installation choices at the
begining was simply brought down to
"Standard graphical install"
The advanced could then let the user choose between text and
graphical, and weather to allow autoprobbing. Advanced would
also enable extra control over the install.
* Disk druid is rather limiting. It would be nice if fdisk
could be used, or better yet if disk druid allowed a user
to (when in advanced mode only):
+ select weather a drive is a primary partition, or
logical (none of this auto selection).
+ allow a user to set mount options eg nosuid
+ options for drive format, eg blocksize, sparse
superblock flag, reserved space for root, disk label
* Display disk label is disk druid.
* Hard drive install.
+ should allow raw block devices to be mounted eg
hdc harddrive could contain a filesystem (no
partition table) (in advanced mode only).
+ possibly add a browse disks option.
* Network installer:
+ The default gateway is automatically filled in
when doing configuring a machines network card.
this can be really bad, as it can interfere with
pppd setting a default gateway, and thus internet
access (if the machine has a network card + modem)
* Lack of swap selector:
+ Installer automatically chooses swap partition,
when there is multiple swap partitions (eg over
multiple drives). Should bring up selection
dialog (in advanced mode).
* Package selection categories:
+ It would be nice for packages to be in multiple
categories. eg I would like to be able to turn
off all compatibility libraries (qt1.x ncurses3,
Well thats about it for suggestions.
These issues have been forwarded to a developer for further action.
These suggestions have been added to a list of features for future releases.
Most of these issues have been addressed in the Pinstripe beta.
