Partion has different endings and + blocks

Partion has different endings and + blocks

Post by Dmhaywa » Mon, 21 Nov 1994 10:00:18

When partitioning a new drive, fdisk gave me the message:
Partion 2 has different physical/logical endings
  phys=(1023,15,63) logical=(1047,15,63)

It's a Western Digital 540M drive, 1048 cyl, 16 heads, 63 spt --

What does the difference mean? -- I'm using the partition for sawp-- will
it cause any problems -- like loss of mind??  -- Not working with a full
set of paging surfaces???  -- mkswap seemed to have no problem with it.

Also  -- on partion 1 of the same drive, fdisk reports LARGENUM+ blocks --
what does the plus (+) mean - again will it be a problem -- am I losing
access to some blocks by having too large a partition?

Thanks for any help.

What does fdisk or cfdisk say about the partition table layout?

The amount of mounted usable space will vary depending on how the
filesystems are initialized, since the filesystem overhead will vary.
