Package: fai-setup-storage
Version: 4.0.6
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

Dear Maintainer,

When trying to use both GPT and LUKS with FAI, the installation fails during
the partition task. It fails while trying to execute :
echo ,,,* | sfdisk --force $boot_disk -N1
sfdisk tries to reload the partition table, and is unable to do so because the
disk is already used by luks (because of the cryptsetyp luksOpen command,
called before the sfdisk command).

The attached patch fixes the problem by changing the dependencies on the luks

I'm closing this bug, since the code that fails was removed from
setup-storage a long time ago. Also contacting the submitter for
getting the disk_config for another test with newer FAI versions did
not work, since the email address is no longer valid.

regards Thomas
