In the meantime I have re-ordered my partitions so that their physical
location are congruent to the minor numbers. However, this hasn't
helped.  On GNU/Hurd, fsck still complains that the number of sectors on
the physical device wasn't identical with the information from the
partition table and that either the super block or the partition table
was corrupt. (Again, both grub and Linux don't have any problems to
access this partition.)

Does GNU Mach use the BIOS? Could it be that it is trying to access the
disk in CHS mode or so? (The GNU parted manual says that the error
message "unable to align partitions properly" was related to CHS mode.)

How do I use it properly? storeinfo /dev/hd2s9 ? How do I decipher the



My current partition table. Anything suspicious? What does the '+' in
the Blocks column mean?
