Feature request for setup-disk to provide option for GPT partitioning
As a huge fan of the alpine setup scripts to minimize administrative
overhead when building a new server, it would be beneficial in my
opinion for the setup-disk script to add an option to use GPT
partitioning instead of MBR partitioning.
Presumably this would also need the gptfdisk package (or similar).
I don’t think this would require many other changes, there’s still the need for a bootable partition (/boot) and so forth, according to http://git.kernel.org/cgit/boot/syslinux/syslinux.git/tree/doc/gpt.txt?id=HEAD
Let me know if I can be of further assistance or provide further information.
