Feature #309203, revision 1
Title: make sure harddrives with 4KiB sectors are handled correctly

openSUSE-11.3: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: John Lombardo (tempusfugit)

Description:
More and more harddrives with 4KiB physical sectors are showing up in the wild.
Partitioned incorrectly starting on the traditional sector 63 these drives
exhibit very poor performance. The linux partition toolchain is being updated
to handle these drives correctly, make sure to ship up-to-date versions of the
tools in question and teach yast to make the best of it.

A complete overview of the issue and best practices can be found in this wiki
