    ubiquity and ext4

    Hi all,
    Now we need support in ubiquity to have ext4 support.

    AFAIK ubiquity uses debian-installer code as well as libparted.

    Now dunno how much support is there or needed in debian-installer but seems to have some initial support in libparted.

    http://parted.alioth.debian.org/cgi-...cgi/ticket/188

    I guess we get it as and when libparted 1.8.9 is done.

    http://parted.alioth.debian.org/cgi-...ilestone=1.8.9

    The libparted version which we have is seems to be 1.8.8.git.2008.03.24-11.1ubuntu1

    Code:
    $ aptitude show libparted1.8-10
    Package: libparted1.8-10
    New: yes
    State: installed
    Automatically installed: yes

    Description: The GNU Parted disk partitioning shared library
     GNU Parted is a program that allows you to create, destroy, resize, move and copy hard disk
     partitions. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganising disk
     usage, and copying data to new hard disks. This package contains the Parted binary and manual
     page. 
     
     This package contains libparted, the required shared library used by Parted. 
     
     Parted currently supports DOS, Mac, Sun, BSD, GPT, MIPS and PC98 disklabels/partition tables, as
     well as a 'loop' (raw disk) type which allows use on RAID/LVM. Filesystems which are currently
     fully supported are ext2, ext3, fat (FAT16 and FAT32), ReiserFS (with libreiserfs) and
     linux-swap. Parted can also detect and remove HFS (Mac OS), JFS, NTFS, UFS (Sun and HP), XFS and
     ASFS/AFFS/APFS (Amiga) filesystems, but cannot create, resize or check these filesystems yet. 
     
     Note that ReiserFS support is only enabled if you install the libreiserfs0.3-0 package. Since
     libreiserfs0.3-0 has been removed from sarge, ReiserFS support is not compiled in the default
     package. 
     
     The nature of this software means that any bugs could cause massive data loss. While there are
     no known bugs at the moment, they could exist, so please back up all important files before
     running it, and do so at your own risk.

    Yes, it's a "must have" if we want to do much with ext4 beyond installing with it.
