I'm no longer the parted maintainer, re-assigning.

Comment 6 Alexander Todorov 2011-08-11 15:08:46 UTC
Reproduced on RHEl 6.1 in KVM guest. Tested on latest 6.2 nightly:

# rpm -q parted 

# parted /dev/vdb -s mkpart primary 0 1GB
Warning: The resulting partition is not properly aligned for best performance.

# parted /dev/vdb -s print
Model: Virtio Block Device (virtblk)
Disk /dev/vdb: 10.7GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos
