Description Abraham Michles 2000-12-04 12:39:41 EST
I have Windows ME installed on Dell 4100 with 40GB hard drive and Intel
82801 BA Ultra ATA storage controller. Using Partition Magic 6.0 I created 
extended boot, root and swap partitions. When I started the installation 
process neither Disk Druid nor fdisk could not read the partition table
issuing the following message: 
   An error occured reading the partition table for the block device hda 
   The eeror was: No such file or directory

fdisk is part of the util-linux package; assigning there.
Comment 3 Elliot Lee 2001-07-17 18:54:43 EDT
Does this problem still occur with the RHL 7.1 installer? It looks like it might
actually be the installer and not fdisk/disk druid.

Apologies for the unresponsiveness of the previous util-linux packager...

This is a really old bug with no response in almost two years. Closing.
