partitioner changes / and home names

Bug #172767 reported by pdlethbridge on 2007-11-29
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Now when you install and after the Language, country and time zone screen there is the partition screen. Now I always manually partition when I install but When the screen comes up to list the partitions, they are not listed as / or home but are given sda1 or something similar. This would indicate that somewhere between the time you are running the OS, without the cd, and the install screen, the drive designations are changed. Why is this happening? If I have a 9 gig partition set as home it should be recognized as home in the new OS without me having to change it, unless I want to. I know you have to check the box if you want to format, but why do both / and home have to be reassigned as / and home in a manual install?

This is in the installer, Ubiquity... it may be gparted, but it's definitely not Synaptic.

Do you still experience this with a Hardy install?
