Device sizes - 03-09-2005 , 09:55 AM
I create some partitions with fdisk and specified the sizes as +3072M and
+4096M, which should be3 and 4GB, but when I use a disk init with the same
sizes, I get the following error in ASE:
basis_dsizecheck: attempt to write page 1535999 on device '/dev/raw/raw1'
failed, system error is: No such device or address
Even if I use 3000M when using disk init, I still get the error. When I use
smaller number such as 2800M, it works.
Why do I loose so much space?
How can I do the math and properly partition these drives?
