$ sudo parted -s /dev/sdb mkpart primary 0 8000
parted: invalid token: primary
Error: Expecting a file system type.

The man page says:

mkpart part-type [fs-type] start end
                     Make a part-type partition with filesystem fs-type
(if specified), beginning at  start  and  ending  at  end  (by default
in megabytes).   fs-type  can  be  one of "fat16", "fat32", "ext2",
"HFS", "linux-swap", "NTFS", "reiserfs", or "ufs".  part-type
                     should be one of "primary", "logical", or "extended".

Why is the legal status of chardonnay different to that of cannabis?
