  • Update the ia64 doc as no binary is needed anymore on this platform (perl script is directly used)

    55So a perl script called parted2fdisk.pl was written that will take as input all the order that mindi/mondo pass to fdisk, translate them to be given to parted and print the result in fdisk format. So this is a filter allowing fdisk replacement. It's only used on ia64. On other archs, parted2fdisk is a link to fdisk.

    7 Thus mindi/mondo launched by root will pass all their call to parted2fdisk instead of the real fdisk, and be able to support the GPT format. It will call fdisk and parted for its work.

    9 To get it on the system to restore, please do the following as root:
    10 
    11 make -f Makefile.parted2fdisk
    12 make -f Makefile.parted2fdisk install
    13 mv rootfs/sbin/parted2fdisk-ia64 rootfs/sbin/parted2fdisk
    14 
    15 This will produce a binary version that will be used by mondorestore during the restoration process on ia64 to handle the GPT format. (Note again that on ia32 parte2fdisk is in fact a link to fdisk to avoid any compatibility issue)

    179The install.sh script will setup everything correctly for you.
     
    2113On Itanium systems you won't generally find an installed isolinux.bin file which is required by mindi to create the bootable images. You'll generally have to take an i386 package for your distribution and install it on your itanium system so that you provide the required missing file.
    2214
    23 On SLES 10, fdisk is nor provided anymore. You'll have to rebuild the util-linux package by desactivating fdisk removal in the spec file.
