Last modified: 2014-02-05 07:43:28 EST
Description of problem:
It possible to make the UI show a partition in more than one entry, even leading to a partition having two different or same mount points.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. enter MANUAL PARTITIONING
1. expand the OTHER tree, select a partition.
2. expand 'CUSTOMIZE' tree, change its type to EXT4 and APPLY.
3. expand the 'NEW FEDORA...' tree (the same partition is already selected)
4. set its MOUNT POINT to /a and change its type to EXT3 and APPLY
5. set its MOUNT POINT to / and APPLY
It is possible to have two / entries pointing to the same partition
each partition should have only one entry (or mount point / function)
tried with ntfs basic, ntfs dynamic, swap and a /boot showing in the UNKNOWN tree.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 18 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 18. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '18'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be
able to fix it before Fedora 18 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior to Fedora 18's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 18 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2014-01-14. Fedora 18 is

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
