The solus installer is great but it misses some advanced disk features that almost all other distribution installers offers.
Since Solus is designed for everyone, it would be nice to consider adding the following points in the improvement list, even if flagged as low priority.
- There is no disk partitioning options during the installation. Of course it is not a big problem since graphical and user-friendly tools like gparted are shipped by default. Perhaps, it would be good to add a button to lauch gparted on the Where should we install? screen. This could be a quick win to increase friendliness.
- Another feature that should be added is the possibility to choose where the bootloader should be installed. This was already requested in T2299 and flagged as invalid but imho not all scenarios where considered :
If a user wants to install Solus on an external device (external disk, USB flashdrive, ...) and make it bootable so he/she can run it from everywhere (cybercafe, hotel, friend's place, at work, ...) or simply to have a standalone test disk, it should be possible to install the bootloader on the external driver instead of updating the existing bootloader of the machine.
