Rant

Aaaargh!

Are Fedora ever going to fix that piece-of-shit partitioning tool?

Version 11 of Fedora after 9 major releases of RedHat and it still blows dead goats.

They've fixed it so that it no longer requires you to unselect all the drives you don't want it to create a partition on.  (Yeah, that was lots of fun when you had eight or ten drives to set up.)

Now it just immediately forgets what drive a partition is supposed to be on, and won't let you clone layouts from one drive to another because of that.

And the old favourite, go back and try to edit your layout because it's randomly numbered your partitions yet again and it decides there's no room for your new partition and crashes.

I hate this thing.

Yeah, I know that I could grab a copy of the source tree and submit a patch or fifteen.  But they change it in every release, and in every release something different is broken - or the same thing is broken in new and wonderful ways.  As well as the things that have always been broken.
