Details

An updated util-linux package that adds additional hardware support for
fdisk, as well as support for a wider variety of SGI partition tables, is
now available.

The util-linux package is a collection of essential Linux system utilities.
The fdisk utility included with util-linux is used to partition storage
devices.

This updated version of util-linux includes the following changes to fdisk:

- 'fdisk -l' now lists partitions on devices using the CCISS driver
and other devices with non-standard pathnames.

All users of util-linux should upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves these issues.
