Package: install
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

(Note: this bug was filed on an i386 sid box.)

I just tried the nightly release of Sarge installer on a Sun Enterprise
250.  Detection of the SCSI hard disks went fine, but partitioning is
not functional at all.  I have noticed two issues:

First, selecting the whole disks prompts whether to start with a blank
partition table, then a confirmation.  After pressing yes both times,
the disk has no available partitions listed.  By this point,
partitioning is no longer possible at all.

I did successfully install by deleting some old partitions, freeing up
everything, and then starting from there:
sda1: swap 512m
sda2: / ext3 (the rest, about 8.5g)

I noticed the kernel spot the new partition layout in dmesg.  However,
after a successful installation, the system was not bootable.  Openboot
said the disk was not ready and that it could not read the disk label.
Re-running the installer showed that the only partition was a 9gb swap.

Throughout all this I have noticed in dmesg the following error message
when I attempt to change the partitioning:

sys32_ioctl(partd_server:3543): Unknown cmd fd(10) cmd(2000126c) arg(efff530)

The values of cmd and arg change somewhat.

partman (62) unstable; urgency=medium

  * Joshua Kwan
    - Call ped_disk_commit_to_dev after creating filesystem to fix sparc
      breakage. closes: #283303
  * Anton Zinoviev
    - Applied patch by Jurij Smakov to add new command GET_DISK_TYPE in
      parted_server, closes: #287931.
  * Colin Watson
    - Build with new libparted ABI (1.6.12).
    - Update for libparted API changes: get sectors, cylinders, and heads
      from PedDevice->bios_geom rather than PedDevice.
    - Explicitly exclude read-only devices from the output of
      parted_devices. As of parted 1.6.19, parted doesn't do this for us.
