GParted Live 1.1.0-1 Stable Released: disk partitioning tool

1 min read

GNOME Partition Editor (GParted) for creating, reorganizing, and deleting disk partitions. It uses libparted from the parted project to detect and manipulate partition tables. Optional file system tools permit managing file systems not included in libparted.

GParted is a very compact self-starting CD that uses X.org, a lightweight Fluxbox window manager, and a Linux kernel. It contains the GParted hard disk partitioning tool, which is very useful as a system maintenance disk.
