Description Terje Røsten 2000-02-11 19:36:28 UTC
I have a multiboot system. In the dialogue where you can select
which partition to boot, you can't edit anything. Boring.
This was text mode install.

Comment 1 Jay Turner 2000-02-11 21:11:59 UTC
You should be able to edit the labels that each entry has.  I am able to do this
in the lab with no trouble.  What exactly are you seeing?

Comment 2 Terje Røsten 2000-02-12 14:39:59 UTC
I mark a label and then select Edit. However, there are no respons at all.
I can of course press Continue and the installer continues, but
I can't modify anything so the dialogue is meaningless.

Comment 3 Jay Turner 2000-02-14 16:16:59 UTC
If this is in GUI, then clicking on a partition will allow you to type in the
label field just above the partition list.  If there is already a label, then
this label should appear in the dialog box and you should be able to edit it.

In TUI mode, a separate subscreen actually appears in which the user is allowed
to edit the label assigned to a partition.

Please reopen this bug if you are still seeing problems.  In addition, if you
are still seeing problems, please send details about the type of installation.

Ok - I tried this ones more and realised that I had selected
Norwegian as install language when this happened.
Also I used TUI and Gnome Server/manual partition/Disk Druid/.
Can you reproduce now?
