util-linux doesn't include sfdisk
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
The sfdisk program is part of the util-linux source kit,
and is useful for various sorts of automated and command
line partition manipulation. However, the generated
util-linux binary RPM does not include it (binary,
manual page, or its example file) on any platform.
Verification: inspect util-linux specfile. Observe lack
of sfdisk in %files section.
Fix: include sfdisk in the %files section, such as by
%ifarch i386 alpha
(possibly it works on other architectures than i386 and
alpha; I picked those two to match what cfdisk and fdisk
are included for.)
Fixed in util-linux-2.9i-4.
The latest Rawhide util-linux RPM includes sfdisk and sfdisk.8,
but doesn't include the sfdisk.examples docfile. sfdisk.examples
is reasonably useful for figuring out sfdisk usage, so I think it
would be good to include it too.
Done in util-libux-2.9o-9.
