    The couple times I've used it, it worked okay. Usually I just use my trusty 512Mb usb drive that thinks it's a gparted live cd.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Default GParted bundled with Backtrack... I don't trust it

    I've use GParted loads of time to play around with partitions.

    When I use GParted from a Ubuntu Live CD, it always works fine.

    However, I think the GParted that comes with Backtrack might be broken. So far, it's destroyed 2 partitions on me.

    Has anyone else had problems with the GParted that comes with Backtrack?

    Of course, it might just be a total coincidence that I was using Backtrack the times those partitions got destroyed, or it could be a problem with the GParted that's bundled with Backtrack.

    Anyone else has similar experiences?

    I'm pretty sure this is an upstream package so it would affect other distros as well.
    Either way BT doesn't really come with a guarantee as you know.
    On the other hand I have never had problems with it.

    Why is my reply showing up before Virchanza's post?
