    Why does fdisk show only one partition and say that its physical and logical partitions are different?

    INTERACTIVE
    root@x5:/ # fdisk -l /dev/block/mmcblk0

    Disk /dev/block/mmcblk0: 7818 MB, 7818182656 bytes
    256 heads, 63 sectors/track, 946 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16128 * 512 = 8257536 bytes

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/block/mmcblk0p1 1 266306 2147483647+ ee EFI GPT
    Partition 1 has different physical/logical beginnings (non-Linux?):
    phys=(0, 0, 1) logical=(0, 0, 2)
    Partition 1 has different physical/logical endings:
    phys=(1023, 255, 63) logical=(266305, 4, 4)
    root@x5:/ # exit

    it's not MBR partitioned, it's GPT partitioned. There are 30 partitions if I remember correctly.

    The ones you care about (system, data, cache) are next to each other and if you play it right you could probably resize them.

    Oops, I was wrong, there's 35 partitions. I found the list in my old chat logs.
