Rating: moderate
References: #1136744
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Software Development Kit 12-SP4

An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.

Description:

This update for kiwi fixes the following issue:

  • Normalize partedGetPartitionID output (bsc#1136744) (#675)

This commit ensures the partedGetPartitionID output returns the same partition ID codes with or without the presence of sgdisk utility. It basically trusts partition names provided by KIWI to map partitions to specific IDs.
Additionally this commit also makes sure that the partition stated to be of `ef` type in config. is named `legacy`, to be consistent with the partedGetPartitionID expectations.
