Topic: SOLVED - Seem to have been bitten by the ntfs resize bug
Hello there, I'm currently writing this from the gparted livecd
I seem to have been bitten by the ntfs resizing issue with libparted in Fedora 12. I really need a hand here as I'm not entirely comfortable working around the Dell's diagnostic and utility partitions.
As discussed at http://gparted-forum.surf4.info/viewtopic.php?id=13777, the following is my geometry:
parted /dev/sda unit s print Model: ATA ST31000528AS (scsi) Disk /dev/sda: 1953525168s Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: msdos Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 1 63s 128519s 128457s primary fat16 2 129024s 31586303s 31457280s primary ntfs 3 31586304s 981202004s 949615701s primary ntfs boot 4 981202005s 1953520064s 972318060s extended 5 981202068s 981611667s 409600s logical 6 1015042934s 1953518452s 938475519s logical lvm
Unfortunately, I braino'd my way through parted warnings about the kernel not acknowleding new partition info - gparted et al has always work well for me in the past and that message is not uncommon
Edit: Might as well show an image of my gparted screen also.
