I'm testing on a virtual machine some "parted" commands.
What i do is
[root@verytest /]# parted /dev/sdb
GNU Parted 2.1
Viene usato /dev/sdb
Benvenuti in GNU Parted. Digitare "help" per l'elenco dei comandi.
Errore: /dev/sdb: etichetta del disco non riconosciuta
"Errore : /dev/sdb: etichetta del disco non riconosciuta" it does mean "disk label unknown" (unrecognized)
I should create a label (bsd, pc98, msdos ecc.) but i can't understand the reason. Would you englight me with explanation please?
Why fdisk does not need a label, or at least, it does not ask it?
What is the difference among the labels for i cannot find over the internet something clear about that? I mean, which is the difference between bsd, msdos, ecc. labels?
