Sculpt TC - Error Building "image/disk"

Hello John,

I'd like to ask you to help me solving this issue.

I discovered in the Debian parted sources that the tool spawns
"dmidecode -s system-manufacturer" since Debian version 3.2-21 to
detect if it's running on Apple. If yes, it applies an heuristic to
generate Apple-compatible GPT/MBR combinations (whatever that means -
some comments mention "synced MBR"). Fortunately, they also added a
force feature via the PARTED_GPT_APPLE environment variable.

So, could you please try to set the PARTED_GPT_APPLE env var to 0
before running the Genode build system. In bash this is as easy as

  make run/sculpt KERNEL=nova

Thanks in advance for your help.
