Description Glen A. Foster 2003-04-09 22:15:00 UTC
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 the buttons: "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)
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2003-04-09 23:33:05 UTC
Yes, this is in generic exception handling code in parted, and we're not going to be changing strings which would require new translation.
