Qtparted opinion - SOLVED
I'm currently trying to resize an existing NTFS partition with qtparted on Knoppix 3.7 prior to installing a new Gentoo system. I've already set the partitions as I would like them to be and selected "commit." I realize that Knoppix is very slow as it runs off the CD-ROM, but qtpated has been frozen for almost an hour with no response. KDE wants to kill it as a non-responsive program. The progress window on qtparted says it is on operation zero of 3 and that it is scanning all drives (if this information is helpful), so it had just started before it stopped responding.
My question is this: will it be okay to kill qtparted or should I wait it out? If I should wait it out, how long should I wait before giving up? Obviously I don't particularly want to loose the data on my NTFS partition.
