Bug #1547

Updated by tuxillo over 8 years ago

disklabel64 is a prime example for unintuitive behavior: 

 

 * it requires an arbitrary 4KB aligment on sizes and offset 
 
 * size aligments seem to be enforced directly, but offset alignments are  
  
 not.    offsets just show up as "ILLEGAL" when re-editing the label.    no  
  
 complaint before 
 
 * automatic sizing using "*" does not work: 

 

 d: * * HAMMER 

 

 but then: 
 
 partition d: size out of bounds (4825292800) 

 

 the size is completely off, roughly by a factor of 10(!) 

 

 I had to do: 

 

 d: 4 * HAMMER 

 

 and then re-edit to make it read 

 

 d: * 4712200 HAMMER 

 

 * there is no way to change the display block size 
 
 * there is no way to specify sector counts or byte counts in size/offset
