I have been able to reproduce this behavior after creating a new partition
table using the GPT label by just creating a new partition and then
changing its name, leaving the input blank.
Changing the name if some value is entered works, but leaving the name
empty of trying to delete an existing name by making the name empty
results in a hang.
I have traced this as far as the function command_set_name() in
if (1 != iscanf("%as", &id))
critical_error("Expected partition id");
part = partition_with_id(disk, id);
if (part == NULL || !ped_partition_is_active(part))
critical_error("No such active partition: %s", id);
log("Partition found (%s)", id);
if (1 != iscanf(" %a[^\n]", &name))
critical_error("No data in infifo!");
log("Changing name to %s", name);
The partman log shows the "Partition found", but not the "Changing name
to" log message, so presumably it hangs on the line in between.
The last that is shown in the syslog with set -x is:
+ open_dialog SET_NAME 17408-2147466751
+ write_line SET_NAME =dev=scsi=host0=bus0=target0=lun0=disc
+ log IN: SET_NAME =dev=scsi=host0=bus0=target0=lun0=disc 17408-2147466751
+ local program
+ echo /lib/partman/active_partition/10change_name/do_option: IN:
SET_NAME =dev=scsi=host0=bus0=target0=lun0=disc 17408-2147466751
+ echo SET_NAME =dev=scsi=host0=bus0=target0=lun0=disc 17408-2147466751
The "open_dialog" call is from active_partition/change_name in
partman-partitioning and looks like:
open_dialog SET_NAME "$id" "$RET"
