Description Hans de Goede 2009-11-06 12:04:13 EST
Description of problem:
With > 1TB disks becoming available, the msdos maximum partition size of 1TB is
becoming a problem.

In order for anaconda to properly restrict the size of partitions it creates on
msdos disklabels, it needs to be able to query libparted for the maximum
partition size.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

Fixed in parted-1.9.0-24.fc13 / upstream 2.1, I'll send patches to the pyparted mailing list adding pyparted support for these shortly.
