Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-02-15 00:31:35 EST
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
	%doc disk-utils/sfdisk.examples
(possibly it works on other architectures than i386 and
alpha; I picked those two to match what cfdisk and fdisk
are included for.)
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-03-25 20:31:59 EST
Fixed in util-linux-2.9i-4.
Comment 2 Chris Siebenmann 1999-03-30 13:55:59 EST
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.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-03-31 12:18:59 EST
Done in util-libux-2.9o-9.
