[storage-ng] Various storage NG related control.xml parameters not working
Last modified: 2019-04-15 12:18:12 UTC
Observed on Kubic, Tumbleweed, and Leap 15, the following control.xml parameters seem to have the following flaws. I have checked that all of the below are mentioned in https://github.com/yast/yast-storage-ng/blob/master/doc/old_and_new_proposal.md and are expected to work in the new proposal
Should prevent editing of the storage proposal
User can edit the storage proposal in both the Guided and Expert partitioner (see current Kubic snapshots - this value is set on all system roles there.
Whether the user can change the previous setting in the UI. If false, they should not be able to change the snapshots setting
User can edit the storage proposal in both the Guided and Expert partitioner. For examples see see current Kubic snapshots - this value is set on all system roles there, or Leap 15 and tumbleweed, where the Transactional Server system role has it set
If true, an extra warning pop-up is displayed if the user enters the expert partitioner during installation.
Pop-up is never displayed. For examples see see current Kubic snapshots - this value is set on all system roles there, or Leap 15 and tumbleweed, where the Transactional Server system role has it set
I don't see neither proposal_settings_editable nor expert_partitioner_warning evaluated anywhere in the code.
See also the 'FIXME's here
which may or may not be true any longer.
Tracking in YaST scrum board.
These settings are now working again with yast2-storage-ng >= 4.0.156.
Note that in the case of "proposal_settings_editable" is set to "false", the button for "Guided Setup" might be still shown. If there are several candidate disks for installation, the first two steps of the Guided Setup (1. Select candidate disks, 2. Select root disk and what to remove) have to be accessible to decide where to install.
When the setting "expert_partitioner_warning" is set to "true", a warning is shown before entering the Expert Partitioner.
The setting "snapshots_configurable" continues working as before, that is, it allows (or not) to activate snapshots in the Guided Setup, but it does not interfere in the Expert Partitioner.
