Resources

GParted is Gnome's front-end to GNU Parted and its official disk management and partitioning utility. Because of it's robustness, ease of use, and wide support for filesystems it is one of the best graphical partitioning utilities available for Linux.

Installation

Installing GParted is easy, however adding support for the filesystems it is capable of supporting may take a little time. If recompiling the kernel is needed then adding support to GParted means emerging the associated userspace tools.

Kernel

It is important to have kernel support for all the filesystems GParted will be managing. See the respective kernel sections by clicking on the links for each filesystem:
