EOS Install Partitions Not Aligned?

Hi all,

While using KDE Partition Manager I noticed this warning about my relatively recent EOS (~3-4 months ago) install:

I had used the default online install on a clean/empty drive with systemd-boot, LUKS2, and BTRFS. This is what the partitions look like:

For extra info, the nvme drive is formatted to 4K sector size using this guide, and running luksDump reports 4K sectors: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Advanced_Format#NVMe_solid_state_drives

I’m wondering what’s going on here, are the partitions actually not aligned? How can I check?


you can check with gparted

Interesting, everything looks properly aligned when checking with parted and the script from here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Advanced_Format#Partition_alignment

So why is partition manager reporting differently?? Maybe it just doesn’t understand alignment with 4K sector sizes?
