Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 696959
wipefs(8) reject partitioned devices
Last modified: 2011-12-06 12:11:01 EST
Description of problem:
Now wipefs(8) prints error and exit on partitioned devices. That's useless behaviour. The expected behaviour is to print warning and work as for unpartitioned devices.
We need a way how to remove unwanted FS/RAID signatures on partitioned devices.
Fixed by upstream commit 70601bb696502fd5d597c4dcaaeb5897a4d36961.
