(I'm afraid I don't know the right package name nor the version
number. I searched with a general web search for `reporting bugs
debian-installer' and `reporting bugs partman', and looked on
https://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller, and didn't find any
I asked the partitioner in the Stretch Alpha 5 amd64 debian-installer
(firmware-stretch-DI-alpha5-amd64-netinst.iso) to resize an ext4
partition on an NVME device.
I did this from:
You are editing partition #3 of /dev/nvme0n1. This partition
is [blah blah] ext4 [blah].
It failed, saying "Because of an unknown reason it is impossible to
resize" etc. The log on VC4 says:
Apr 12 18:00:03 partman: Error running 'tune2fs -l /dev/nvme0n1'
Obviously that is not the right device name. I asked for a shell on
another VC, and
tune2fs -l /dev/nvme0n1p3
printed the kind of output I would expect.
I hope this bug report is helpful. I can probably reproduce the
problem and maybe save debug logs etc.
The partition is actually the filesystem of the laptop vendor's
preinstalled Ubuntu trusty. So I will try to resize it from within
the Ubuntu installation.
I hope that when I make new partitions it will manage to choose the
correct device to write to when it creates the filesystem...
 Dell, an XPS-2013 Developer Edition 2016. The laptop is booting
in UEFI mode and the NVME SSD seems to have a GPT partition table.
