With the help of Kirill Belyaev's 4.3.0 post, I've been rolling my own 4.4rc kernels for my T100TA and after a couple of months with no issues, I started getting disk errors when the (64 GB) drive, combined with one of the later kernels, got past a certain degree full.

Today I started messing around using parted and now have to fix the partition table. I'm trying to re-install Fedlet but it objects on account of not being able to find a disk label. Can someone tell me how /dev/mmcblk0 should look?

Here's the output of parted print all:

We are really proud of GNOME 3.12, and our enthusiasm is shared by many individuals and entities - here are quotes from some of them.
