Option to disable disk check on certian volumes in YaST

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


This is one really really really annoying feature in yast. Here is the scenario, you have a machine with a bunch of storage drives, drives that are normally kept full. Everytime you enter something like package management in YaST it pops up a low disk space warning. This warning should only apply for volumes where YaST utilizes for it's files (such as download cache, home, etc). A HTPC for example often has volumes full to the max.


  • Disable YAST checks for unrelated installation filesystems (https://bugzilla.suse.com/show_bug.cgi?id=960162)

YAST warns of low space in file systems unrelated with the real installation directories. This behavior is confusing for new users that thinks that YAST installs files outside the system directories. Some examples from the forums:

I think it would better disable these checks or include a configuration option that allow users exclude some file systems.
