Creating a properly aligned partition with parted – twm’s blog

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/19

I like the deceptively simple, if you remind that percent signs are the way to go for GNU parted (not to be confused with gparted which is Gnome parted).

At [WayBack] Creating a properly aligned partition with parted – twm’s blog:

mkpart /dev/somedevice ext4 0% 100%

It gets rid of the dreaded “The resulting partition is not properly aligned for best performance”.


Via: [WayBack] Parted is a flexible tool for working with partition tables under Linux. Unfortunately it sometimes seems rather stupid… – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+
