GPT hard disk support


Dear All

In the 'wish list', I would request that GPT support (using gdisk for partition) be added. I do not know how to get it included, hence requesting here. This is now a necessity, because HDD with memory of 'Terabytes' are available, and to exploit it fully, GPT support is needed. Also, with GPT disk, no need for logical volumes, since you can make any number of partitions

Here's a howto from a year ago on installing slackware on gpt disks, even without uefi.

I already use it on my slackware 14.1, but I am aware that it is not supported at the moment in Dragora. Hence the request

I don't forget your request about GPT support. This will be added (by default).
