Description Jochen Schlick 2017-08-23 08:45:54 UTC
- 0.27.x works.

- parted/fdisk are able to show/display all partitions (gpt). but the new gparted versions display only one big disk.
- maybe the reason is that I have several partitions which contain ZFS-Pools - because gparted displays the whole disk as ZFS, or the partition order differs from the partition naming order (e.g. sda8 starts/ends before sda7)
Comment 1 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2017-08-24 21:52:09 UTC
I use GPT partitioning on my machines as well but not ZFS and everything works fine with these versions of gparted. Could you attach your emerge --info ?
Comment 2 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2017-08-26 07:58:15 UTC
Thank you for the report. Please attach the logfiles

to provide more info 
(because it seems that I'm the only one hitting this bug, which is in my eyes nearly unbelievable)

#############################################
gparted (with libparted : 3.2) shows for /dev/sda in its window:

partition   filesystem  label      size          .... 
/dev/sda    zfs             tank40  465.76GiB    ---   ---


PS: at least it shows that there is something ZFS-like on the disk and one ZFS pool name..

whereas parted correctly shows:

FYI:  
number 4, 7 and 6 are valid ZFS pools

number 1 is EFI
number 8 is the /boot of gentoo system in ZFS pool 4 and 6
number 2 is as name says a Linux Mint system
number 3 is SWAP
number 4 is ZFS pool named "tank60" containing a gentoo and a freebsd system
number 5 is ext4 data 
number 6 is ZFS pool named "tank40" containing a pure gentoo system
number 7 is ZFS pool named "tank326" - data tank

Comment 5 Jochen Schlick 2017-12-11 21:45:51 UTC
played around with more partitions/disks.
It seems to me now that gparted doesn't like the combination of more than one zfs-pool/partition per disk plus the non-ascending order of gpt-partitions (e.g. /dev/sda7 comes before /dev/sda6 on disk) whereas parted has no problems with this
Comment 6 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2018-11-27 10:53:49 UTC
Could you give a shot at gparted-0.32.0 ? If this is still problematic, I'll ask you to report this problem upstream.
