Description Andre Robatino 2013-05-14 02:17:43 UTC
Created attachment 747485 [details]
screenshot of 19 Beta TC4 text install, "Install Destination" spoke

Description of problem:
As of 19 Beta TC4, during a text install, under the "Installation Destination" spoke, the choice of filesystem has no default (screenshot attached). In a graphical install, LVM is the default.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-19.25-1

Comment 1 Samantha N. Bueno 2013-05-14 12:23:00 UTC
If a filesystem isn't selected, installation will automatically default to using LVM (as in the graphical install).

That is completely non-obvious to users though, so you're right, and LVM should be selected from the outset to be consistent with graphical behavior.

Comment 2 Samantha N. Bueno 2013-05-14 12:43:24 UTC
Patch posted to anaconda-patches list.

Comment 6 Andre Robatino 2013-05-17 09:36:23 UTC
Was not able to test 19 Beta RC1 (anaconda 19.27-1) due to boot issue. In 19 Beta RC2 (anaconda 19.28-1) I can confirm that the LVM box is checked by default, however I also saw bug 964069 (Anaconda creates native partition in text mode if LVM or btrfs is selected) when I chose the default LVM.
