QTParted – Partition Magic for Linux

Well, not quite. This is a Qt frontend to GNU parted. I have a spare 20GB hardrive here so I’ll see what it can do with that!
It’s also available as an RPM on apt-get, but I’m not sure which repository. Here’s the contents of my sources.list:

rpm ftp://apt-rpm.tuxfamily.org/apt redhat/9/en/i386 os updates extra
rpm-src ftp://apt-rpm.tuxfamily.org/apt redhat/9/en/i386 os updates extra

rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net redhat/9/i386 os updates freshrpms
rpm-src http://ayo.freshrpms.net redhat/9/i386 os updates freshrpms

rpm http://utelsystems.dyndns.org/apt redhat/9/en/i386 utelsystems
rpm-src http://utelsystems.dyndns.org/apt redhat/9/en/i386 utelsystems

  1. Did you find a ready-make rpm of qt-parted for Redhat? I could really use that! I’ve been struggling for the last couple of hours of compiling every library from sources, just to end up with: “configure: error: cannot compute sizeof (char *), 77″ in the ./configure stage of qt-parted. Very frustrating….


  2. I’m sorry, but qtparted don’t manage partitions like partition magic for windows. it can’t merge resize and format to system file of other OS.
