Description of problem:

fdisk doesn't address most of today's new disks or GPTs.  Please remove it from the installer

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

All Fedora 17 installer / rescue images

fdisk is part of a larger package of tools and is very likely to be needed by some that don't need all of gdisk's functionality. I don't see any benefit in removing it.
Comment 2 joshua 2012-04-12 10:58:37 EDT
Interesting.  I thought though that parted did everything that fdisk did... does it not?
Comment 3 Brian Lane 2012-04-12 12:42:57 EDT
More. But I'm sure there are still people who expect fdisk to be available, either for rescue or for use in kickstarts.
Comment 4 Martin Gracik 2012-04-13 03:51:58 EDT
I like fdisk.
