Bug#16077: dinstall partitioning ignored extended partition
retitle 16077 [FIXED?] dinstall partitioning ignored extended partition
A long time ago you submitted this bug:
|> I installed debian 1.3 on a pentium a few days ago, with an
|> extended dos drive from cylinders 0 to 266. I have three logical
|> drives, from 1-8 9-100 101-199, with cylinders 200-266 being part
|> of the extended drive, but not part of any logical drive.
|> On installing debian, forgetting about my extended drive, the linux
|> partition started on cylinder 200, and did not tell me about the
|> extended drive. Apparently OS/2 does the same thing.
We believe this problem with libfdisk was fixed a while ago. Could
you please confirm or infirm that? If we don't hear from you, we'll
probably close the bug soon.
