Enh: Please change choices for partition table header page
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:52 EST
Description of problem: The following text in the partition-header page is not
clear at all, and could be made so much easier just by changing the choices in
"This disk contain a valid Primary and Alternate GUID partition table but the
Protective MBR is invalid. This generally means that the disk had GPR
partitions on it, but then a legacy partition editting tool was used to change
the partition table stored in the MBR. Which data is valid, GPT, or MBR? Yes
will assume the GPT information is correct, and re-write the PMBR. No will
assume the MBR is correct, and erase the GPT information. Ignore will assume
the MBR is correct, but not change the disk."
-- the three button choices are "Yes", "No", and "Ignore".
This enhancement request is to specifically address the general usability of
this page. Please change the buttons (and the wordings of the button
explanations) to be "Keep GPT", "Keep MBR", and "Ignore".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
AS2.1 for IA64 and later
Additional information: If you have to roll anything in anaconda for the Q2
errata, please, please, please change this as well. It's low-risk to change the
text (isn't it)? No logic changes are necesary other than possibly checking a
string for what's returned when a button is pressed, right?
Unfortunately, this is coming directly from parted (more or less)
Yes, this is in generic exception handling code in parted, and we're not going
to be changing strings which would require new translation.
