Bug Description

Binary package hint: gparted

I am using Ubuntu 10.10, gparted 0.6.2 and parted 2.3.

I am creating a primary partition with fdisk over a whole disk through "sudo fdisk /dev/sdX" then "n", "p", "1", "enter", "enter", "t", "fd" and finally "w". I then lanch gparted through "sudo gparted". I expect to have the gui of gparted displayed and the newly created partition recognized.

If I actually do "sudo gparted", the terminal displays this:
======================
libparted : 2.3
======================

glibmm-ERROR **:
unhandled exception (type std::exception) in signal handler:
what: basic_string::_S_create

aborting...

I also tried to create the partition with gparted modify its type with fdisk and the same behavior happens.
