Description Volker Sobek 2012-10-23 17:51:21 UTC
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 18.19 (Fedora 18-Beta-TC6)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In the 'installation destination' panel, select a disk that already contains partitions and doesn't have enough free space for an installation.
2. Click on continue
3. In the appearing 'installation options' dialog, click on the 'reclaim space' button
4. In the appearing 'reclaim disk space' dialog, leave all action fields unchanged ('Preserve') and click on 'reclaim space'
5. You are taken to the 'installation options dialog' again
6. continue at 3.
Actual results:
The user might miss the fact that you have to change the action field in the 'reclaim disk space' dialog, and think the selected row/partition will be deleted when clicking the 'reclaim space' button, which is not the case. He ends up in a loop, trying to remove partitions.

Expected results:
The 'reclaim space' button in the reclaim disk space' dialog should not be sensitive until at least one least one action field was changed.
