Okay that last number before 2.7t on the fdisk output is correct. It doesn't make sense to me that it's smaller than the number before it, but I checked and what was supplied is accurate.

The last number on last line before 2.7t is probably wrong. I can try running second command again and see if result differs.

 Hello,

 Didier Spaier, Slint maintainer, here.

 Le 12/03/2018 ? 15:48, Linux for blind general discussion a ?crit?:
 So far as I can tell, slint appears to have a 2tb hard drive size limit.
 I tried it with a 3tb drive and hope I haven't permanently trashed the
 drive.? What happens with slint is you set up a swap partition on the
 drive and a linux partition and it doesn't matter what you use to do it
 either.? Once done, you run setup and get the message that slint can't
 find any partitions on the hard drive.? I have a bad compatibility
 situation here since technology is 24 years old and back in those years
 all that was known about was bios, efi and uefi didn't exist then.? Last
 bios flash update for AMD k8 athelon computers I think was 2006.? So,
 I'll see if I can rescue the 3tb drive with archlinux then go from there.

 I haven't such a big drive to check but am a bit surprised of such a
 limitation.

 To help investigate, could you please start again the installer, then
 after log in as root instead of running setup type this command, then post
 the output:
 lsblk -o model,name,size,fstype

 And also please post the output of this other command:
 fdisk -l|grep ^/

 That should allow me to understand why the installer doesn't see the
 partitions.

 Best regards,

 Didier
