Description Sergey Vlasov 2009-12-24 17:09:17 MSK
gpart-0.1h-alt7 on i586 fails to work with disks > 2 GiB:

*** Fatal error: dev(/dev/sdc): seek failure.

Seems that the patch to remove _llseek and subsequent large file support patches are completely broken.

Thanks for reporting and fixing this, and sorry for introducing the problem in the first place -- fortuntely haven't had the need for actual testing in a long time.

Fixed in 0.1h-alt8.

There are still more bugs in there - e.g., i586 and x86_64 versions behave differently on the same disk (on x86_64 the extended partition is not detected for some reason), but at least now the i586 version does not fail completely.
