Description Jay Estabrook 2007-12-31 22:58:19 UTC
Description of problem:

On Alpha, SRM console requires BSD stype partitions for booting. The current
parted code does not allow RAID or LVM types of partitions to be created on
BSD-partitioned disks.


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

parted-1.8.6-12.fc8


How reproducible:

Every time.


Steps to Reproduce:
1. install F8 to Alpha
2. allow the autopartitioner to attempt making an LVM partition on BSD disk
3.
  
Actual results:

Error exit.


Expected results:

Correct RAID or LVM partition on BSD disk.


Additional info:

Attached is a patch to fix the problem.

Thanks for the patch.  Fixing it in rawhide and releasing an update for F-8.

Comment 3 David Cantrell 2008-02-06 01:17:38 UTC
Actually, just going to fix it in rawhide as we don't do an Alpha build of Fedora.
