Mandriva 2010 RC2 is about to be released, so here are some news about latest changes I did this week.
First, the partitioning wizard was updated.
During the last ten years it looked like this:
Only the custom partitioning was graphical.
Now it looks like this:
There are several known issues. First there is only one resizable Windows partition per disk, while I should change the one which has a slider when you click on another one. Another one is that I can not have the indicator aligned on top so there is no clear way to see where an option starts, so I temporarily added ugly separators
Other known issues are the color based on filesystem type so the new one is same color as existing ext* ones, no possibility to view content of a partition when clicking on it, and no information on partitions without label. I should fix all of this before 2010 final.
Another change, still related to partitionning: ext4 is now default FS!
