Bug#412624: partman-auto: all files in one partition fails on 1.2TB disk
I tested today's daily netinst build of i386 on a machine w/ a 1.2TB
logical disk and found that it silently fails to calculate partition
I selected "Partion Disks"->"Guided Partitioning"->"Guided - use entire disk"
Selected my one option:
SCSI.CCISS (-,0,0) (cciss/c0d0) - 1.2 TB Compaq Smart Array
And "All files in one partition".
It then presents the overview menu, but apparently nothing was
If I let it use the whole disk but split up the partitions, it comes
up with some reasonable-looking calculations.
I'll look into this more later this week - I've not yet debugged any
of the partitioning code so helpful suggestions are welcome :) fyi,
this also exists in sarge installers.
