I have a CentOS system that has 508 G free space.
I want to create a new partition from it.
It locates in extended partition.
I create new partition and format it as anything (ext4, fat32), after apply it can't finish the process and gives me this error:
An error occurred while applying the operations See the details for more information. IMPORTANT If you want support, you need to provide the saved details! See http://gparted.sourceforge.net/larry/tips/save_details.htm for more information.
and when I save the
save_details.htm it contains this information:
GParted 0.6.0 Libparted 2.1 Create Logical Partition #1 (fat32, 508.23 GiB) on /dev/sda 00:00:01 ( ERROR ) calibrate New Partition #1 00:00:00 ( SUCCESS ) path: /dev/sda-1 start: 184424448 end: 1250263039 size: 1065838592 (508.23 GiB) create empty partition 00:00:01 ( ERROR ) libparted messages ( INFO ) WARNING: the kernel failed to re-read the partition table on /dev/sda (Device or resource busy).

I used fdisk and created
/dev/sda6, and I see partitions like this:
$ sudo fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 640.1 GB, 640135028736 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 77825 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes Disk identifier: 0xa62a8bc3 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 262 2097152 83 Linux Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary. /dev/sda2 262 5361 40960000 83 Linux /dev/sda3 5361 10460 40960000 83 Linux /dev/sda4 10460 77826 541113344 5 Extended /dev/sda5 10461 11480 8192000 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda6 11480 77825 532917056+ 83 Linux Partition 6 does not start on physical sector boundary.
but when I use
mkfs to format it I see this error:
$ sudo mkfs -t ext4 /dev/sda6 mke2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010) Could not stat /dev/sda6 --- No such file or directory The device apparently does not exist; did you specify it correctly?
What is the problem?
