Tested with 1GB SD card. Partition tables is created, but the an attempt to create a partition fails with this: Error creating partition: helper exited with exit code 1: In part_add_partition: device_file=/dev/mmcblk0, start=0, size=1015808000, type=Windows_FAT_32 Entering MS-DOS parser (offset=0, size=1015808000) No MSDOS_MAGIC found Exiting MS-DOS parser Entering Apple parser Mac MAGIC found, block_size=512 map_count = 2 Leaving Apple parser Apple partition table detected containing partition table scheme = 2 got it got disk new partition Error: Can't have overlapping partitions. ped_disk_add_partition() failed

Looks like the same problem as in bug 24055.

Exactly the same problem exists using an usb disk on key. I guess this isn't hardware problem after all.

I want to apologize for thiss bug report. As a kernel developer, I always use custom compiled kernels, and usually keep same .config file. I completely forgot that to speed up the compilation I turned off all but MSDOS partition support. Now I can create that partition map, however I see that I am not allowed to add/remove partitions. Maybe this is because I use 2M virtual device...
