Description Orion Poplawski 2009-03-24 18:45:10 EDT
Description of problem:

gparted currently needs mtools to change FAT filesystem labels.  Probably worth a Requires.  Also filed upstream bug requesting support to use dosfstools' dosfslabel.  May want to switch to that when it happens.

Comment 1 Deji Akingunola 2009-03-25 10:17:19 EDT
I'm not inclined to add a requires for mtools for gparted. The reason being that gparted support quite a (small) number of filesystems, for which it does a runtime detection of the various tools filesystems tools. I think it is superfluous to add all these as require for the package.
I believe your suggestion to upstream to use dosftools is a good one, as it seems to be install by default.
