Description James G. Sack 2006-07-15 04:03:06 EDT
Description of problem:
 from inspection, line 56 of fdisk_wrapper.py seems to omit an option parm for 
the sfdisk -u option.

 s/'-u', devname/'-u', 's', devname/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
 I haven't actually seen any consequences, haven't tried to cause an error, but 
runninf sfdisk -u without a units parm causes the devname arg to be ignored, 
which I presume could cause confusion.

Comment 1 James G. Sack 2006-07-15 04:11:44 EDT
I believe I should have suggested an 'S' arg rather than 's'.

Another way to state it is to make line 56 look like line 87, which would give
  res = execWithCapture(SFDISK, [SFDISK, '-l', '-uS', devname]) 

Comment 2 Stanko Kupcevic 2006-12-18 16:50:06 EST
Line 56 uses fdisk (which doesn't allow argument to -u option), and not sfdisk,
which is in use on line 87.
