Bug#196085: Device files are not accepted under the Hurd

From: Ognyan Kulev
Subject: Bug#196085: Device files are not accepted under the Hurd
Date: Wed, 04 Jun 2003 17:03:32 +0300
User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3.1) Gecko/20030527 Debian/1.3.1-2

Package: parted
Version: 1.6.5-1
Severity: important
Tags: patch, upstream

Under the Hurd, when device file is passed as an argument to "parted",
Segmentation fault occurs.  More detailed report can be found in

The reason is using store_typed_open instead of store_open.  More
information can be found in $HURD/libstore/store.h (or
/include/hurd/store.h).  Basicly, store_typed_open expects something
like "device:hd0", while store_open expects something like "/dev/hd0".
Needless to say, the latter is what everyone would try.  The first style
is equivalent of (MAJOR,MINOR) pair in *nix, and the second style is
equivalent of block device file name.

I forward this bug report to bug-hurd, as I'm not completly sure if this
is the right fix.
