Description Marc Curry 2007-05-31 16:21:52 EDT
Description of problem:

sfdisk has disappeared from anaconda's /usr/sbin directory, so many different
types of partitions that could formerly (RHEL4) be made in a %pre section of a
kickstart configuration file (e.g. logical, 8e (LVM), fd (RAID), etc...
partitions) can no longer be created.  The fdisk and parted tools are there, but
parted (version GNU 1.8.1) does not support partitions of any type other than
primary and extended, and fdisk is interactive-only (can't use in kickstart).

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

anaconda 11.1.2-36-1

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to create a partition of type 8e in kickstart %pre section using sfdisk.
Actual results:

Command not found.

Expected results:

Command found!  (It was there in RHEL4)
