Feature #9005: Tails Installer without a splash screen
Tails Installer allows buggy "Reinstall (delete all data)" on too small USB sticks
I have a (virtual) 4.3GB USB stick with an older Tails installed. I start Tails/Buster that has the newer Installer, it detects that my destination device has Tails installed already to the default option is "Upgrade". So far, so good. But it also lets me choose "Reinstall (delete all data)", which does not work: it is stuck at the partitioning step (iirc). I guess we should hide that button on too small USB sticks and only allow upgrading.
(I suspect that's the fallout from an invisible merge conflict between kurono's branch and mine, i.e. Git can't notice things conflict because different code is modified on both branches, but the result of the merge does not work as it should.)
- Assignee changed from anonym to kurono
- Priority changed from Normal to Elevated
This is a regression => bumping priority.
kurono, perhaps you would like to work on this? Ideally it should be done for 3.3 but don't worry too much: let's first focus on polishing (if needed) and merging the work you've already submitted for QA; this one can wait a bit more.
Let's aim at fixing this in time for Tails 3.7 i.e. a good, well-tested fix shall be merged by the end of April. Taking into account some time for reviewing and acting upon the review, I think an initial branch shall be proposed by April 15. kurono, would this work for you? If not, please reassign to anonym and I'll discuss the next steps with him. Thanks!
