(in case either Bart or Harley is in touch, Hi),
mmmhhhh.... I'm a little confused, perhaps by the front-end (I'm used to
play with KDE, so I'm in trouble with gparted).
1) downloaded and installed parted_1.6.25
2) installed gparted (version 0.0.8-1) by apt-get
(I had some problem to install the 0.0.9 starting from the tar.bz2 file)
3) when I run parted, it complains a little but it rightly prints the
Error: Invalid partition table on /UNIONFS/dev/hda -- wrong signature 0.
Disk geometry for /UNIONFS/dev/hda: 0kB - 30GB
Disk label type: msdos
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags
1 32kB 8349MB 8349MB primary fat32 boot, lba
2 8349MB 9147MB 798MB extended
4 9147MB 11GB 1571MB primary
3 11GB 30GB 19GB primary ext3
Partition numbered as 2 is the swap partition, partition numbered as 3
is for playing with rather small Linux distributions obtained by
a remastering of Knoppix, DSL, etc.
Partitions numbered as 1 and 4 are the important ones.
4) when I run gparted, it always says to me that the HD is unallocated
and I'm not able to access the interesting information.
Which step do you suggest to be the next one?
P.S. Be quiet! I'm not in trouble with the HD (I can work both with Linux
in the last partition and with Windows in the first one). However, I'm
very interested in producing produce a remastering (for students) with a
well working partitioner. I've previously used qtparted without any problem,
but on my laptop after the last attempt to resize the vfat partition...
It didn't succeed and it started to give me the message I've sent you a
few days ago....
