wipe 2.2.0 reports incorrect progress percentage

Post by KOCMOHABT » 14 Apr 2010, 21:56

I'm doing a full wipe on an 80 GB partition using "wipe -v -l2 -N -D". At the moment it shows 108% progress.

The developer, Tom Vier, noted this bug on project bugs list, and fixed it in version 2.3.0. You should upgrade the package to the latest version, as version 2.2.0 is from January 2004. Alternately, you could switch to the other wipe, one by Berke Durak, as that's the one included in large, mainstream distributions, such as Debian/Ubuntu, Redhat/Fedora, etc.
