Hi John,

A similar answer from me: I no longer maintain util-linux -
letter cc-ed to Adrian Bunk, current maintainer.

Concerning disks without active partitions:

sfdisk warns:

       warn(_("Warning: no primary partition is marked bootable (active)\n"
            "This does not matter for LILO, but the DOS MBR will "
            "not boot this disk.\n"));

I agree that if other fdisk versions do not mutter in a similar way,
it would be an improvement to make them do so.
I am going to add this to my TODO for our fdisk over libparted.
I agree that it would be an improvment.
