Gparted - Libparted error

Probably better to ask @jonathon or @dalto. I’m not running those kernels.


[ricklinux@eos-plasma ~]$ uname -a
Linux eos-plasma 5.8.7-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat, 05 Sep 2020 12:31:32 +0000 x86_64 GNU/Linux

How is it possible that you can stay on an older kernel? What bothers me most about Arch is that I am always forced by updates to the latest kernel.

This is the current kernel. Are you running Zen or some other kernel?

uname -a

no, I’m on the latest mainline kernel. Ok, then it is the 5.8.7 … I can’t look up at the moment because I’m not at this computer.

Actually it might be as I’m just updating now and i’ll reboot and try it!


You aren’t forced into any updates you don’t want. Most of the tools out there show you everything that comes across as far as updates go, but you can do whatever of them you want or none of them. There are options to ignore updates to specific programs as well, check out some topics here around that. It’s all part of having complete control of your system, you can do whatever you want and aren’t forced into anything.

I just updated.

Yes… it looks like an issue with the file. I’m getting it also now since updating the kernel.

Can you do anything with it? Or better said, is it negligible if everything else is going well? All partitions are booted correctly.

I’m not going to worry about it. Hopefully it will sort itself out. I don’t see a problem yet.

Thank you, I am a little calmer now.

On 5.8.7-zen no problem . On 5.8.8-zen yes . I got the same warning

Arch asked to report bugs before 13 , so who is gonna report :thinking: ?

Install gnome-disk-utility and check your partitions if you are not sure . Mine looks unchanged on it .

You could report it then. :wink:

Edit: There is one report already not sure if this is different?

I think this is something else as it is dated from June 22/20


No ,I’m good . Newbies don’t report bugs :hugs: . Experts do :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I have already done that. Everything all right with the SSD.

I think it’s a software issue with gparted. Probably a certain file needs an update.

Edit: Or it’s a kernel issue.


Ok expert, thanks first! :+1:t2:

Kernel issue because , Gparted didn’t update ; kernel did :rofl:


This was a simple finding/assumption related to the topic and I have no idea why got flagged .
Anyway thanks for restoring , but I missed to see how it looks when flagged by someone else :joy:
