You are _not_ on next, you are on master branch.  pls do a

Remember to do the whole process from the beginning.  1. bootstrap, 2.
configure. 3. make  4. sudo make check

Hi Joel,

OK done.  I suppose above you wanted to say '4. sudo make install'

1. Do the `make check` and see if you still have the failure in t7000.
There will be failures in other tests.  but these also fail for me and
need to be addressed.

The test t7000 still fails for me, but succeeds with the patch.

2. Execute the test line directly
dd if=/dev/zero of=testfile bs=512c count=100
echo n | sudo PREFIX/sbin/parted  ---pretend-input-tty testfile "mklabel gpt mkpart 
primary ext3 1s -1s"

I have done exectly this (with PREFIX=/tmp) and got:
Warning: You requested a partition from 512B to 50.7kB.
The closest location we can manage is 17.4kB to 33.8kB.
Is this still acceptable to you?
Yes/No? n

BTW: I am using readline-6.0.3 (6.0 with patches 001-003).

Next I have done everything again, this time '--without-readline'.
Executing the test line directly is unchanged.
Running 'make check' now succeeds with and without the patch, simply because
without readline t7000 is skipped.


I am giving up now and will wait for the next release.
