Please post more details - is this a new or a pre-existing partition you were
Comment 2 Gene Czarcinski 2001-07-06 08:25:55 EDT
The Summary line is more or less correct (is == if) but the inner text is not.

If fdisk is used to define a new partition and the the next panel is selected,
the new partition does not have a "filetype".  If you try to edit that
partition, a popup message is generate: "You cannot edit partitions without a
filetype".  In that panel, if you delete and then "reallocate" the partition,
you can set the filetype but you cannot edit an existing partition and
set/change the filetype.

I suspect this has something to do with looking into a partition to see if the
"83" partition is ext3.
