Bug Fix Advisory parted bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2005:246-06
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2005-05-18
Last updated on: 2005-05-18
Affected Products: Red Hat Desktop (v. 3)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 3)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES (v. 3)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS (v. 3)

Details

Updated parted packages that fix support for 1 terabyte (TB) partitions are
now available.

The GNU parted program allows you to create, destroy, resize, move,
and copy hard disk partitions. parted can be used for creating space
for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, and copying data
to new hard disks.

A problem existed where incorrect partition information would be output for
partitions over 1 TB in size. This has been fixed.

All users of parted should upgrade to these updated packages, which
resolve this issue.
