#300 closed System Defect (deferred)

Better not show non-created partitions

Reported by: yerenkow Owned by: kris
Priority: minor Milestone: 8.1
Component: Installer Version: 8.0-BETA
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…

Description

If I have empty da0;
I created da0s1;
At slices wizard, I see da0s1 and da0s2 (which is similar to 'create new partition for full size, and create there slices')

At partition wizard there is now possibility to create partitions. User can now create any count and flavors of partitions.

How about remove there da0s2 (un-created) from slices wizard, and properly explain to user, if he want to create slice, he need to create partition in the first time;

  • Resolution set to deferred
  • Status changed from new to closed

The installer does allow the selection of "free" space, and it will create a partition / use it automatically. However I can see how that might be confusing, so I've added this to the TODO for 9.0, to refactor this into the SysInstaller? GUI:
