QTParted under FC2


I have QTParted installed on my FC2 box, but when i start it i get an error (which i also get with CLI parted) about how my disk geometry is screwed up, and then qtparted won't work.

I dual boot, and I had the classic FC2 problem, which i fixed with sfdisk.

Anyone had any luck getting parted/qtparted working under FC2?

Yes I had luck, I downloaded the RedHat 9 RPM packages that work fine for FC1 and FC2
Here's the link: http://qtparted.sourceforge.net/foru...topic.php?t=36
I downloaded :
Redhat 9 RPMS
XFS support
NTFS support
Reiserfs support

when i fire it up and click the disk i get
critical error in "ped_disk_new"

I'm guessing that's because of the disk geometry problems. Any solutions?

Fedora's installer.

I had the winxp not booting problem, and so used sfdisk to rewrite the MBR (all well documented)

Have you by chance modify the geometry of your hard disk in order to fix the Windows XP not booting problem ?

Well... that's exactly the cause why qtparted don't work well.
It can't recognize de geometry of your hard disk.
