Description joshua 2012-06-22 16:42:35 EDT
Description of problem:

Anaconda's kickstart needs a way to specify creating a GPT instead of the old style msdos partition tables.

zerombr and maybe clearpart need a way to specify this.

maybe just introduce a "zerogpt" directive that is mutually exclusive with zerombr?  Not sure of the best approach, but the partition table choice needs to be something that can be specified

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

Fedora 17 x86_64
Comment 1 Brian Lane 2012-06-22 18:30:20 EDT
Adding an option to clearpart --initlabel is probably the right way to do this.
Comment 2 joshua 2012-07-06 18:39:53 EDT
Should this be F17 or rawhide?
Comment 3 Brian Lane 2012-07-09 15:21:47 EDT
F17 is fine. The fix will go into newui/rawhide.
Comment 4 Andrew McNabb 2012-09-07 18:24:05 EDT
Is this possibly a duplicate of bug #647810?
