/dev/vda: unrecognized partition table type
Today i had to create a swap because i had problems with a php package manager - composer - when updating the dependencies because it didn’t have enough free memory. I’ve created it on /var/swap.1 with the following commands:
/bin/dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/swap.1 bs=1M count=1024 /sbin/mkswap /var/swap.1 /sbin/swapon /var/swap.1
After this the composer updated the dependencies successfully as expected. After that i runned fdisk to check the partitions and now i’m getting invalid partition table:
Disk /dev/vda: 41610 cylinders, 16 heads, 63 sectors/track sfdisk: ERROR: sector 0 does not have an msdos signature /dev/vda: unrecognized partition table type No partitions found
Is this something i should worry about? It’s a VPS with 512MB running debian 7.
Thanks in advance
