I am trying to install archlinux natively on my chromebook. I am following the instructions here, however when I try to create a new disk label for GPT

localhost ~ # parted /dev/mmcblk1 mklabel gpt

I get the following error:

localhost ~ # partx -t gpt -u /dev/mmcblk1
partx: /dev/mmcblk1: failed to read partition table

This also occurs when I try to label an USB drive. May I ask what I am doing wrong here?

  • what does echo /dev/mmc* say? Your device might have the device under a different name, e.g. /dev/mmcblk0. – icarus Dec 28 '16 at 18:12
