Hello list,

Does it make sense to install a partition table on a RAID-1 device? I assume 
it would only include a single partition table, but it might prevent some 
programs from complaining they don't recognise the partition type. I have 
one such device for /boot and another for lvm2 volumes.

Secondly, has anyone here had problems with gparted? I tried to run it today 
to get a picture of my disk use, but it bombed out with "Assertion 
(metadata_length > 0) at dos.c:2305 in function add_logical_part_metadata 
failed."

I have a bug report prepared, but I wanted to check here before submitting 
it.
