long time Linux user, but can't find an answer to this. The makers of parted/gparted completely ignored my question.
Some time back in slackware, I'd formatted a 2TB with two ext2 partitions, but when I install either Mint or Ubuntu, gparted sees this as a single FAT32 formatted drive.
See print from parted and fdisk below.
Anyone know how to get parted to see my ext2 partitions without moving everything off and repartitioning in parted?
