Last modified: 2007-12-13 05:38:27 EST
Description of problem:
When creating a new partition in fdisk, if using +sizeM (e.g. +100M), size is
calculated based on 1024K. When using +100G, size is calculated based on 1000M,
instead of 1024M.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. fdisk /dev/[hs]da
May be fixed in Update 1, have not checked. Encountered bug during RH300,
course material specifies using 'G".
Thanks. Fixed in upstream code.
