Description Peter Heckert 2006-04-14 10:07:52 EDT
Description of problem:
I have an USB drive and this is formatted in superdisk format without a
partition table.

fdisk and sfdisk dont recognize this format and spit out error messages and
"?" instead of numbers. 


Disk /dev/sdd: 19077 cylinders, 64 heads, 32 sectors/track
Units = cylinders of 1048576 bytes, blocks of 1024 bytes, counting from 0

apparently this causes system-config-lvm to crash on line 113:

  File "/usr/share/system-config-lvm/fdisk_wrapper.py", line 113, in getPartitions
    beg = int(beg)
ValueError: invalid literal for int(): ?
