Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219414
Terabyte sized partitions are shown with a "strange" size
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:39 EST
During disk druid a partition in a Logical Volume with about 1.2TB is shown as
having a size as 1.21853e+06.
It would be grat, if this size could be shown in a more human readable format.
Especially as the Volume Group is shown as 1220512 MB.
Please see the attached screenshot for an illustration.

Furthermore, if one is adding a new LVM partition disk druid is suggesting a
partition size in the e+06 notation.
This size notation is however rejected by the installer.

I've modified this in the devel branch. If we need to get this done in RHEL5 as
well, we'll need to set the appropriate flags. I don't know if it's too late to
get this in, though.
