Description lukas.reusser 2000-02-29 09:06:57 EST

I have a 135GB RAID-Array on a Mylex DAC960PD-3.
When I start "fdisk /dev/rd/c0d2" and create a new partition, fdisk only
see 3665904 blocks (3.6GB)!
Are 135GBytes too big for fdisk?

Thanx Luke

Apologies for the unresponsiveness of the previous util-linux maintainer...

Please try RHL 7.1 - I'm told that many of these type of problems have been fixed.
