Topic: GParted 0.1 on Ubuntu 6.06 (64-Bit) Resize fails ...
Apologies if this has been solved in the newer version, but I haven't had chance to test yet.
I installed the gparted that is available as part of Dapper Drake. I have a Rocket Raid card, with a RAID 5 array, which I just extended to include a new 500GB disk.
In gparted I tried to resize my /dev/sdb1 partition (ext3) from 1.0TB, to 1.5TB. However when I click apply I see that it doesn't see the new size correctly. It reports that it's resizing to -666566MB.
After several minutes the dialogue disapears. The gparted main window is displayed, with the parition remaining as it was previously.
Are there any known issues regarding size limitations that gparted can handle?
I tried to boot the gparted live disc, however the raid controller is not detected. I have patched the kernel (I'm running 184.108.40.206) with the drivers required for the card, so I don't happen to have the modules handy to try and load in the live CD.
I will attempt to install gparted 0.3.1 this evening to see if the same issue persists.
