#2802 PR closed: More failsafe 200_partition_layout.sh

Labels: enhancement, won't fix / can't fix / obsolete

In layout/save/GNU/Linux/200_partition_layout.sh
ensure the partition name/type entry in disklayout.conf
is always set (and percent encoded if needed)
at least it is set to the fallback value 'rear-noname'
regardless of the 'disk_label' value

My attempt here makes things even worse!

That old code is so terribly obfuscated
that it is basically impossible to fix things
with reasonable effort.

Now its sucessor https://github.com/rear/rear/pull/2803
tries to avoid issues like
by ensuring a supported partition table is found
and if not it errors out.
