During regular L3 work I often don't find enough time to work on the command line disk partitioner parted which I maintain.

Changes often directly affect yast-storage(-ng) and libstorage(-ng). @aschnell opens bugs faster than I can solve them. Upstream is often slow and often wants patches differently.

We are at SLE15 Beta 3 submission already. So such bugs are starting to get urgent.

This project is about using Hackweek to be able to work on parted without interruptions by L3s.

Buglist SLE15:

  • bsc#1058667 (cannot resize used/busy partitions) in SLE15 Beta 4
  • bsc#1064446 (NVDIMM/pmem devices not supported) in SLE15 Beta 4
  • bsc#1065197 (s390x BLKRRPART ioctl on FBA DASD issue) active devel
  • bsc#1066467 (parted -m $dev p doesn't escape ':' separator) in SLE15 Beta 4
  • bsc#1067435 (s390x BLKRRPART ioctl on ECKD DASD issue) YaST bug, DASD limitations

Buglist SLE11-SP4 (lower priority but much older):

  • bsc#887474 (cannot create msdos disk label if gpt disk label exists) only confirmed

Rather relevant to openSUSE:

  • bsc#959181 (fatresize: incorrect /dev/mmcblk* path) patch sent to upstream, submitted to Factory
  • bsc#1072479 (parted: fatresize 0.1 needs an upgrade to 1.0.3) WONTFIX - too many bugs

Looking for mad skills in:
