Add gui slider to the Yast partitioner for resizing partitions

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
New

Description

I'm requesting we add a nice slider to the partitioner to resize partitions with text and visual readout.

This way we have two options:

  1. Manual slider for resizing partitions with visual readout
  2. Manual text entry for resizing by partition/cylinder
  3. Adding a grab bar on both sides of partition block to allow resizing from either side of the partition block
  • The request is for openSUSE 11.4 and higher

User benefit:

The gui slider simplies the ability to shrink, resize and move a partition during the installation process.

Earlier versions of the Yast partitioner used to have a nice gui slider. It was a very useful feature for resizing the user's partitions during the openSUSE installation set up.

It's time to modernize the partitioner.
