After long time not using it I started yesterday cfdisk to check my hard disk(s). I was surprised to not seeing the label column anymore (the one showing the names of the partitions). Example of my first hard drive:

Code:
                                              Disk: /dev/sda
                         Size: 931.5 GiB, 1000204886016 bytes, 1953525168 sectors
                                    Label: dos, identifier: 0x67c8b4a4

I was expecting to see a column called "Label" somewhere but it seems to be gone!? I have util-linux 2.25.2 on my box:

Code:
# cfdisk -V
cfdisk from util-linux 2.25.2
# _

Anyone knows what has happened?

In 2.22.2 version label column exists. I`m catching this too at early arch linux installed.

They seem to have made major changes in 2.25.2. Before (like in 2.24.1), it used to look like this:

Code:
                               cfdisk (util-linux 2.24.1)

                                  Disk Drive: /dev/sda
                            Size: 10737418240 bytes, 10.7 GB
                  Heads: 255   Sectors per Track: 63   Cylinders: 1305

    Name         Flags        Part Type   FS Type            [Label]         Size (MB)
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    sda1         NC            Primary    GPT                                 10737.42  *

                      Quit program without writing partition table
