So I'm now thinking about upgrading parted to 2.1
for Fedora 13 and maybe also for RHEL-6 (we also
have a RHEL-6 bug about 4k sectors: bug 523954).
Upgrading to 2.1 also has the advantage that it has
much robuster gpt support.
I think this will be helpful for RHEL-6.
I only have 2 worries:
1) All my recent dasd patches have been forward
ported, and some tests have been run to make sure
dasd support works, still we may see some regressions
there (but nothing that should be unfixable, as there
are no major differences in the dasd support).
The DASD stuff has been iffy in the past, so I imagine regardless of rebasing
parted or not, we'll still have some patch massaging to do.
2) All libparted users will need to be rebuild as
the soname will change (the API is presevered, so a
simple rebuild will suffice):
[hans@localhost ~]$ repoquery -q --whatrequires 'libparted-1.9.so.0()(64bit)'
I wouldn't worry about this at all. The Fedora package police will pick up on
this and get things rebuilt if the package maintainers do beat them to it.
