RFE: GPT partition support (Intel Mac)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:34 EST
Description of problem:
The current version of anaconda does not support the GPT disk partition used on
the new Intel Macs. This prevents using Fedora on these Macs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rawhide (tested with 06-Jun-01)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from current Fedora rescue / install CD
2. Anaconda warns about GPT partition and wants to erase it
Anaconda warns about GPT partition and wants to erase it
Anaconda should be able to handle GPT partitions
Current versions of GRUB (0.97+) and parted are also required
We're supposed to be getting a few of the mactels this week -- once we do that,
I'll enable the support. Right now, we don't allow GPT on x86 because most
boxes will then be left in a non-booting state. So I want to do it in a way
that will avoid people ending up with non-booting boxes.
OK, thanks. Any chance this will make it for inclusion in FC6t1?
With the installer/recue CD from rawhide (17-Jun-06) I managed to install FC6 on
my MacBook succesfully!
