Description Michael Redinger 2001-09-09 15:39:15 UTC
cfdisk seems to have been removed. However, this removal is still incomplete. There are still things in the spec file dealing with it (eg. moving it from /sbin/ /usr/sbin/) and the README.cfdisk file in /usr/share/doc/util-linux-xxx/ ist still there.
(Originally I planned to send the following to the testers-list, but
I don't think it's too useful to duplecate it ...)

From testers-list:

cfdisk was previousely in util-linux.


cfdisk and the cfdisk man page are gone, README.cfdisk is still there
in the 2.11f-9 package.

In the SRPM, cfdisk.c and cfdisk.8 are still available in fdisk/ .

The spec file still contains stuff dealing with sfdisk, eg.:
# This has dependencies on stuff in /usr
%ifnarch sparc sparc64 sparcv9
mv ${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}/sbin/cfdisk ${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}/usr/sbin

However, cfdisk and cfdisk.8 are commented out:

Finally, there's a nicht changelog entry:
* Sun Aug 26 2001 Elliot Lee <sopwith@redhat.com> 2.11f-9
- Don't include cfdisk, since it appears to be an even bigger pile of junk than fdisk? :)

It's obviousely a bug. If cfdisk is to be removed, do also remove the
README file and clean up the specs file ...
