Description John Reiser 2002-08-05 14:10:13 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020529

Description of problem:
Using DiskDruid partitioning does not preserve existing filesystem label,
and does not offer a means of setting the label during reformatting for ext3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find a spare 2.5GB partition, already formatted ext3, and already labeled.
2. Text mode install 2nd limbo beta Personal Workstation, Disk Druid partition.
 Re-use the partition, mount as root "/", re-format as ext3.
3. Observe label using "cat /etc/fstab" or "tune2fs -l /dev/hdaX".

Actual Results:  Filesystem label is changed to "/1".

Expected Results:  Filesystem label should be kept as is, and/or DiskDruid
should offer an interactive method to change the label, including the option of
keeping it as is.  By default, labels should survive reformatting, and
formatting should allow choice of label.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2002-08-12 17:46:46 EDT
The system does not care about the actual label on the filesystem, as long as
the reference in /etc/fstab is correct.

You can change them afterwards if you want.
