Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-05-18 08:39:10 EDT
Description of problem:

/usr/share/doc/anaconda- claims that:

   zerombr (optional)

       If zerombr is specified, and yes is its sole argument, any invalid
       partition tables found on disks are initialized. This will destroy
       all of the contents of disks with invalid partition tables. This
       command should be in the following format:

       zerombr yes                                                 

       No other format is effective.

Which is purely wrong. The current version of anaconda complains that
zerombr command no longer takes any options. Thus "zerombr yes" should
be replaced with "zerombr". Is there any difference between it and
"clearpart --initlabel"?
