Description

I get this error message when trying to install on a BTRFS partition on a MBR disk:

"You need a disk with a GPT table for install on a btrfs partition"

I edited this script and commented out this if statement to test it and see if it was really true:

/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/calculate/install/variables/disk.py:

""" if tableOnBootDisk == "dos" and useBtrfs:
raise VariableError(_("You need a disk with a GPT table for "
"install on a btrfs partition")) """

My install went without incident with this modification, with MBR disk and btrfs /
