I've successfully partitioned a logical volume (/dev/dm-2) using sfdisk and
fdisk -l now reports there to be a partition /dev/dm-2p1 as desired. However, this device does not seem to exist in /dev/ and I'm unsure why/where to find it so that I can now format it using mkfs.
The output of
fdisk -l is:
Disk /dev/dm-2: 20.9 GB, 20971520000 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 2549 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00000000 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/dm-2p1 1 2549 20474811 83 Linux
Any help is much appreciated!
