Topic: error while attempting to partition drive for ext4 file system
I get the following error while attempting to partition drive for ext4 file system:
GParted 0.8.1 --enable-libparted-dmraid
Create Primary Partition #1 (ext4, 143.43 GiB) on /dev/sda 00:00:34 ( ERROR )
create empty partition 00:00:13 ( SUCCESS )
size: 300793856 (143.43 GiB)
set partition type on /dev/sda1 00:00:10 ( SUCCESS )
new partition type: ext4
create new ext4 file system 00:00:11 ( ERROR )
mkfs.ext4 -j -O extent -L "" /dev/sda1
mke2fs 1.41.14 (22-Dec-2010)
Could not stat /dev/sda1 --- No such file or directory
The device apparently does not exist; did you specify it correctly?
I'm running gparted from Puppy Linux 5.5.5 (Slacko).
Any help is appreciated.
