Bug Description

Binary package hint: parted

It seems parted 64 bit is broken in Karmic, or at least the --list option.

This is the output I get:

device-mapper: deps ioctl failed: No such device or address

Its not clear to from your bug report what command you were having an issue with but I guessed 'sudo parted --list' and was unable to recreate this bug on Karmic or Lucid on multiple amd64 systems. Am I trying the right command?
