Description bourne.identity@hotmail.com 2020-08-28 13:48:28 UTC
I often come up the situation that a couple of slices in my MBR disk need to be deleted and created afresh. Deleting the slices with gpart is not a problem, but recreating the two slices often leads to wrong partition order:

Slice 1 > Slice 4 -> Slice 2 -> Slice 3

gpart should have a fixorder subcommand to fix the partition order as:

Slice 1 > Slice 2 -> Slice 3 -> Slice 4

Linux fdisk has the ability, so gpart should as well.
