After installing the optional dependency package exfatprogs, gparted crashes with this output:

GParted 1.4.0
configuration --enable-libparted-dmraid --enable-online-resize

Not sure if this is an upstream problem, sorry if yes.

Unfortunately nothing useful in that trace because no debug symbols. You could try recompiling the pkg yourself with debug [1] or wait for the Package Maintainer to do it. Under what environment are you launching gparted (Xorg, Wayland, etc)? How is it acquiring root?

I tried again today, error does not occur anymore. No upgrades of the mentioned packages (libparted, gparted, exfatprogs) in the meantime.
I don't know what caused the change. Attached file "upgrades.pacman.log" contains list of all package upgrades done since I reported.


Root aquired using:
$ sudo gparted

Environment is Xorg:
xorg-server 21.1.4-1
