connecting an unpartitioned disk should bring up a partitioner

Feature state

Rejected Information


USB or Firewire disks can be easily connected at runtime. For a newly bought disk, nothing happens, when it is connected for the first time.
Unlike e.g. a USB-Memory-stick, which immediatly opens a filebrowser, when first connected.

The technical difference is, disks come unformatted, USB-sticks come formatted.

We should recognize this difference and pop up an easy to use partitioner.

Christian, would it be possible to use HAL or something like that to pop-up the Yast-partitioner? I don't think we will get a stripped down partitioner at the moment for 11.1.

No, HAL can't and shouldn't popup anything. It's up to the desktop (e.g. suse-plugger) to check the HAL events if a device get added to the machine and react on this.

This must be done by the desktop. But it's to late now.
