GNU Parted is a program that allows you to create, destroy, resize, move, and copy disk partitions. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, and copying data to new hard disks. This package contains the binary and manual page. Further documentation is available in parted-doc. Parted currently supports DOS, Mac, Sun, BSD, GPT, MIPS, and PC98 partitioning formats, as well as a "loop" (raw disk) type which allows use on RAID/LVM. It can detect and remove ASFS/AFFS/APFS, Btrfs, ext2/3/4, FAT16/32, HFS, JFS, linux-swap, UFS, XFS, and ZFS file systems. Parted also has the ability to create and modify file systems of some of these types, but using it to perform file system operations is now deprecated. The nature of this software means that any bugs could cause massive data loss. While there are no such bugs known at the moment, they could exist, so please back up all important files before running it, and do so at your own risk.

    2013-01-07 - Colin Watson <> parted (2.3-12) unstable; urgency=low * Breaks: python-parted (<< 3.6-5); previous versions were broken by the PED_PARTITION_LAST_FLAG change in 2.3-11.1 (closes: #697588).

    2013-01-01 - Christian Perrier <> parted (2.3-11.1) unstable; urgency=low * Non-maintainer upload. * Cherry-pick upstream patches to fix the handling of GPT partition flags when modifying a GPT. This, most particularly fixes the handling of 'legagy BIOS bootable'. Thanks to Jérémy Bobbio for providing the patch and analysis. Closes: #673042

    2012-09-13 - Miquel van Smoorenburg <> parted (2.3-11) unstable; urgency=medium * Non-maintainer upload to fix partitioned md devices (bug #684713) * backport md-partitions.patch: libparted/arch/linux.c (_device_get_partition_range): Use /sys/block/DEV/ext_range instead of range sysfs file.

    2012-06-27 - Colin Watson <> parted (2.3-10) unstable; urgency=low * Acknowledge NMUs with thanks (closes: #676593). * Back out non-registered-device.diff, which had already been applied upstream in 2.3. * Rearrange patch ordering slightly. * Update debian/watch for upstream switch to .tar.xz. * Use dpkg-buildflags to enable hardening options. * Build with V=1 so that tools such as blhc can scan more effectively for missing build flags. * Remove Sven Luther from Uploaders with thanks for his past contributions (closes: #677756). * Revert ABI symbols change from 2.3-9.2, since whatever prompted that change seems to have changed back (closes: #678788).

    2012-06-08 - Samuel Thibault <> parted (2.3-9.2) unstable; urgency=low * Non-maintainer upload. * Add partition table re-read on hurd-i386 (Closes: #669936). * Backport gnulib fix for set but not used variables (Closes: #676590). * Update ABI symbol list (Closes: #676591).

    2012-04-09 - Robert Millan <> parted (2.3-9.1) unstable; urgency=low * Non-maintainer upload. * kfreebsd_lvm.patch: Support LVM on GNU/kFreeBSD. (Closes: #644825) * hurd-partition-path.patch: Fix wrong path for GNU/Hurd partitions, patch from Jeremie Koenig. (Closes: #586696) * non-registered-device.diff: Fix NULL dereference condition, patch from Jeremie Koenig. (Closes: #586682)

    2012-03-31 - Colin Watson <> parted (2.3-9) unstable; urgency=low [ Colin Watson ] * Add build-arch and build-indep targets to debian/rules. [ Svante Signell ] * Avoid building debian/rules targets more than once (closes: #649741).

    2011-07-30 - Colin Watson <> parted (2.3-8) unstable; urgency=low [ Robert Millan ] * Add detection of ZFS volumes (closes: #635384). * Add detection of GEOM encryption devices (closes: #635393).

    2011-07-17 - Colin Watson <> parted (2.3-7) unstable; urgency=low * Use [linux-any] in debian/control rather than [!hurd-i386 !kfreebsd-i386 !kfreebsd-amd64]. * Remove from libparted0-dev. * Convert to multiarch.

    2011-06-15 - Colin Watson <> parted (2.3-6) unstable; urgency=low * Backport from upstream: - Accommodate two-component Linux version numbers like 3.0 (LP: #796865). * Rewrite package descriptions and add a Homepage field (thanks, Justin B Rye; closes: #615124).
