Bug#218689: partitioner: Unable to start mac-fdisk

Package: partitioner
Version: 0.10
Severity: important
File: partitioner

I was using the Halloween version of the powerpc netinst CD.

When it got to the partitioner step, it correctly listed the
only drive connected to the computer. When I selected  Continue,
it failed, confirming the correct device name in the failure 
message. there was only an INFO message in console 4:

Nov  2 04:44:17 (none) user.info partitioner.postinst[1569]: INFO: Using architecture depend fdisk configuration! 

When I retried the step, I got the same info, but at [1598].

I suspect the arch-detect thingy is not working right. I was able
to partition the disk by going into console 2 and typing 

mac-fdisk /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc

(the same path that was displayed in console 1).
