Description maximlevitsky 2009-09-20 17:10:08 UTC
Just after creation of the partition table, it creates a single partition that spans all the device (which is wrong), then an attempt to delete it fails: Error erasing: helper exited with exit code 1: In part_del_partition: device_file=/dev/mmcblk0, offset=512 Entering MS-DOS parser (offset=0, size=1015808000) MSDOS_MAGIC found found partition type 0xee => protective MBR for GPT Exiting MS-DOS parser Entering EFI GPT parser No GPT_MAGIC found Leaving EFI GPT parser Entering Apple parser No MAC_MAGIC found Leaving Apple parser No known partition table found got it Error: /dev/mmcblk0: unrecognised disk label ped_disk_new() failed

(In reply to comment #0) > device_file=/dev/mmcblk0 IIRC, SD media only support MBR so that's probably why you are seeing this bug. Yes, it's crazy, but that's part of the spec IIRC. Not all SD readers may enforce this restriction. Does it work on other kinds of devices?

very well could be, a usb on disk keys doesn't have this limitation?

Unfortunately, exactly same behavior is seen on an usb disk-on-key.
