Redesign of YaST Expert Partitioner

May 16th, 2008 by

We are redesigning the YaST Expert Partitioner for openSUSE 11.1 and SLE11. The main idea is to have a navigation tree with all available storage devices on the left side and to display information on the right side along with buttons to perform appropriate actions. See the screenshot.

RPMs are available in the openSUSE Build Server in the repository home:aschnell. They are far from finished by you can already navigate in the tree and inspect you storage system. It should be possible to see where we are heading with the redesign. You can install them on your openSUSE 11.0 Beta 3.

  1. That’s cool. Let me put in some explicit links:

    Factory repository,
    Build service project

    To get people playing with this and testing it, we should somehow assure them that they will not kill their data by accident. Is it as simple as “no changes done until you press Accept and even then we ask if you’re sure” ?

    Looks very cool!
