[PATCH 3/4] fdisk: rework fatal errors

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Davidlohr Bueso <dave@xxxxxxx>

When the device cannot be opened, there's no point calling fatal() when we can just use err(3). When any other kind of fatal
error occurs it's Ok, in addition we can also go ahead and close the descriptor before exiting the program as it's currently leaking.
