linaro-media-create: add GPT support (--part-table option)
Now user can choose partition table between MBR (default) or GPT, using the option "--part-table". For GPT partitioning, "sgdisk" tool is required. Call-chain of interest (before this patch): linaro-media-create: __main__() -> linaro_image_tools/media_create/partitions.py: setup_partitions() -> linaro_image_tools/media_create/partitions.py: create_partitions() -> linaro_image_tools/media_create/partitions.py: run_sfdisk_commands() The same operation can be done manually as follows: $ dd if=/dev/zero of=linaro.img bs=1M count=2k $ /sbin/sgdisk -n 1:-:200m -t 1:EF00 linaro.img $ /sbin/sgdisk -n 2:-:- -t 2:8300 linaro.img $ sudo kpartx -a linaro.img $ sudo mkfs.vfat -F32 -s 2 /dev/mapper/loop0p1 $ sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/mapper/loop0p2 $ sudo kpartx -d linaro.img Change-Id: Iba274c18bdb1f618124c8cc2784f233b049de7f0 Signed-off-by: Semen Protsenko <semen.protsenko@linaro.org>
