Bug#262868: no 'FREE SPACE' in newly initialized disklabel
I have two disks on my Sun SPARCstation 10, sda and sdb. sda is a 1 GB
drive which I chose to initialize with a fresh disklabel for the
purposes of testing.
x SCSI1 (0,3,0) (sda) - 1.0 GB SEAGATE ST31200N SUN1.05 a x
x SCSI1 (0,4,0) (sdb) - 2.1 GB SEAGATE ST32550N a x
x > #2 48.1 MB B f ext3 /boot a x
x > #4 1.9 GB f ext3 / a x
x > #1 98.4 MB f swap swap a x
Notce how there is no "FREE SPACE' available for sda. I created a new
disklabel on sdb and as you can see I was able to use free space there.
This used to work...
