These both use an earlier version of libparted. I've configured nparted so that libparted is linked statically -still have that to do for gtk-parted although I'm more interested in updating them both to use later versions of libparted. You probably won't find these programs anywhere else...
Hi Gnashley,

Both of these links are coming up 404 -- not found.

Regards,

Oh ,sorry. Awhile back my whole site was wiped out when the ibiblio servers crashed. And I still haven't gotten around to restoring things -when i do the stuff will probably be moved around abit anyway. I'll let you know when they are back though -I've been working pretty hard the last couple of weeks to get all my 'testing' and 'hacking' areas cleaned up so that I have a pretty orderly set of stuff to upload -around 20GB of stuff...

Hi,

I did the same thing. Now I want to reduce the size of the partition and install another os. The various partition programs will not recognize the fedora partition. If you solved the problem could you let me know how you did it. Thanks.
