#4168 GPT Partitions are not shown or creatable

In Webmin 1.590 I can see or create Partition bigger than 2 TB. After Upgrate Webmin to 1.600 no GPT Partitions are shown. It's also impossible to create any partition on blockdevices (in my case a RAID 5 array) which are > 2 TB. I think there is a problem with gparted.

Testet Systems: CentOS 6.0 and CentOS 6.3

After downgrade to 1.590 everything is doing well with working with the partition tool.

    Do you have the parted command installed on your system? Webmin needs that in order to list partitions on GPT-format disks.

    Yes: parted.x86_64 2.1-18.el6 is installed.

    So if you run :

    parted /dev/sda unit cyl print

    what does it output? Replace /dev/sda with whatever the device file is for the problem disk..

    I had the same problem and found the solution.
    See artifact 3602166 (sorry I didn't see this before adding a new bug)

    Thanks Sven for the fix - this will be included in the next Webmin release.
