Changes in the Graphical Interface
A new, alternate partitioning interface provided by the the [application]*blivet-gui* tool is now available in the manual partitioning screen. Unlike the existing partitioning interface, [application]*blivet-gui* allows you to configure partitioning from the "bottom up": for example, in case of LVM you first create physical volumes, then a volume group, and then logical volumes, while in the old interface, you start with logical volumes and everything else is created automatically at first.
The previous partitioning interface continues to be available as alongside the new one. For additional information, see the link:++https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/AnacondaBlivetGUI++[Fedora Project Wiki].
The installer now shows more detailed indication of current progress during all phases of the installation.
Changes in the Text Mode Interface
The text mode interface now supports setting up IP over Inifiniband IPoIB connections in the Networking screen.
The built-in help system, which was previously available in the graphical installation interface, has been extended to the text mode interface.
The [application]*Initial Setup* post-setup text mode interface now runs on all available consoles.
A new command, [command]`snapshot`, has been added to provide LVM snapshot support for devices in an LVM thin pool. The command has the following syntax:
snapshot pass:quotes[_vg/lv_] --name pass:quotes[_snapshot_name_] --when [post-install|pre-install]
Available options are:
[option]`--name=` - provide a name for the snapshot.
[option]`--when=` - controls when the snapshot will be created. Use `pre-install` to create the snapshot before the installation begins, but after commands in the [command]`%pre` part of the Kickstart are executed, or use `post-install` to create the snapshot after the installation and after commands in the [command]`%post` part of the Kickstart are executed.
Three new options are now available for the [command]`autopart` command:
[option]`--nohome` - do not create a separate `/home` partition or volume if one would be created under partitioning rules
[option]`--noboot` - do not create a separate `/boot` partition or volume
[option]`--noswap` - do not create any swap space
Changes in Anaconda Boot Options
The [option]`inst.waitfornet=` boot option is now available. Use it to force the installer to wait for network connectivity before starting the installer interface for a specified number of seconds - for example, [option]`inst.waitfornet=30` to wait 30 seconds.
A new option named [option]`inst.ksstrict` is available. You can use it during a Kickstart-based installation to treat Kickstart warnings and error, meaning they will be printed on the output and the installation will terminate. Without specifying this option, warnings are printed to the log and the installation proceeds.
