The GUI partitioner is not robust. Building a Mythbox requires an XFS partition, and the Ubuntu LiveCD's GUI partitioner chokes on trying to make XFS partitions. Random combinations of partition sizes also yield failures; I resized a Windows laptop last night from 20Gb (no Windows swap, oddly) to 5Gb NTFS/100Mb FAT32/1Gb swap/remaining ext3 and it choked until I redid it with 150Mb FAT32. No real explanation why.

Fixing it needs to be a priority, even if the need for XFS is pretty unlikely.

Maybe reading the linked article would have been a good idea before you start complaining about something.

TFA says:
* Fix gparted crash if xfs_db fails (#50909).

Ya think that might be the XFS bug you are talking about?


Or how about these for the other partition problems you were having:
more defence against gparted/qtparted crashing (#47194, #48856)
