First of all, why not let the user specify the damn file system? Why must I fight with this system that apparently does not and cannot work properly on it's own?
I have a Debian 8.02 image with a single ext4 partition. Here is my fstab:/etc/fstab: static file system information.
#Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#/ was on /dev/vda1 during installation
/dev/vda1 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0 /dev/sr1 /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
I get the following output from fdisk:
Disk /dev/vda: 2 GiB, 2147483648 bytes, 4194304 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: dos Disk identifier: 0x063db64f
Device Boot Start End Sectors Size Id Type /dev/vda1 * 2048 4192255 4190208 2G 83 Linux
I want to resize it, but I always get the message that cloudmin can't figure out the FS type. I have tried all kinds of tricks and stuff, but it just won't work. This feature is clearly horribly broken - if there were some proper documentation specifying exactly how to set up the partitions and everything it might work, but right now it's a mess and yes I am pretty upset about it. You need to do much better than this.
