Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 491748
Partition 1 does not end on a cylinder boundary.
Last modified: 2009-04-07 09:48:48 EDT
I used the custom partition screen from F11 on March 23 to lay out my system. I created a 250M fixed length /boot directory. After the install got going I checked in vt2 what the output of fdisk -l was to make sure things were as I expected. I see something odd: "Partition 1 does not end on a cylinder boundary"
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000948c5
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 32 256000 83 Linux
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary
/dev/sda2 32 2582 20480000 83 Linux
and on and on and on
I don't know what it means, or if it matters, but I've never seen a message from fdisk like that before.....
