These programs don't do shit I tell them to do..
If I delete a partition and create a new one and write it I get:
The partition table has been altered!
Calling ioctl() to re-read partition table.
WARNING: Re-reading the partition table failed with error 22: Invalid argument.
The kernel still uses the old table.
The new table will be used at the next reboot.
I reboot, mount the drive and I still have all my old files on an NTFS partition, they also have incorrect size of my hd, it's not 134.7 GB , the fdisk program for windows is way better, you just delete the partition, create a new one and your done..
Apears to be very hard to do this simple operation in Linux.
I just want a clean, formated, linux partition on my drive..
