partman & problems with last cylinder
- I cant seem to contact the author via the web page form, so I thought
I'd see what folks have to say here.
I create most partitions using linux fdisk and this has been working
fine for a long time.
What I've noticed recently is that if you create a partition with
anything -but- partman and the partition encompasses the last
of a disk then partman will report partition boundary errors.
This seems to be a fairly simple problem to resolve as the reason for
it is that partman does not consider the last cylinder to be valid
some reason (perhaps using a < instead of a <=??).
eg, 1023 cylinders on the disk 1-1023, partman says there are 1022
thats okay because it counts them 0-1022.
Problem is that the 1022'nd cylinder is not used by partman, its
ignored, and if say linux fdisk uses it well partman thinks this is a
Hopefully its an easy fix.
