Support Harddrives with more than 2TB capacity
As harddrives with capacities more than 2 TB's are available, we need to ensure that those drives are fully supported.
- mainboard chipset drives supporting those drives
- booting from those drives : That requires EFI/UEFI support, as MBR only supports 2TB harddrives as maximum because it's based on 32bit fields
- drive needs to be set up as GPT drive because GUID partitiontable uses 64bit sector numbers
- full capacity is recognized by the system and usable
Recent tests were showing issues with current linux systems.
Could somebody with more inside knowledge could comment on that and if this could cause problems with upcoming openSUSE releases?
As available harddrive capacities are constantly growing, we need to make sure that opensuse can be installed on those systems without a problem.
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
Set release notes
I haven't got the needed hardware, but if somebody does, could he/she try to install openSUSE 11.3/4 and report issues to get some idea where we are with regards to this issue.
