  2. Hi,

    Thanks a lot for the installation screen shots.
    Does Suse still does that “Shrinking the volume” during partition, even after manually selecting the partition.
    Just wanted to know since last time it created one extra partition on my drive by shrinking.Thats the only point stopping me from using Suse.
