grsec: disk formatting/partitioning may not work
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

Trying to format an iso onto usb using Gnome Disks, errors, I assume it is grsec, but have not confirmed by testing outside grsec kernel. But can format just fine from the command prompt.

See screenshot for error:

See command prompt for success:
