gparted with large disks Sub_title: gparted appears to use a signed 32 bit value in workingout sizes
Has anyone made a pet of gparted that works with disks bigger than 2^31-1 bytes. It appears that they do their math in 32 bit signed values a quick fix to the code would be to change it to unsigned so it works for 2T hard drives.
Since machines have floating point these days, a conversion to doubles may be a better fix for the long term.
