Description Terje Røsten 2000-02-11 14:36:28 EST
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.

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 09:39:59 EST
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 11:16:59 EST
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?
