Description Chris Kloiber 2000-08-08 18:22:53 EDT
Blanking your partition table using the 'o' + 'w'  commands running fdisk
in the installer does not work. Removing all partitions individually with
'd' and then 'w' does work.

BTW- Why is there no 'component' for fdisk in bugzilla?
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-09 11:04:59 EDT
Because its in the util-linux package.  Just do a 'rpm -qf <binaryname>' to find
out what package a file is in.

This doesn't work in user-mode either, so I don't think its a anaconda related
