GParted Live updates underlying OS
The GParted development team has published version 0.8.1-3 of GParted Live, a small bootable Linux distribution that contains the GParted utility. GParted, which stands for Gnome PARTition EDitor, is a partition editor application that can be used to create, organise and delete disk partitions via a graphical user interface (GUI). Supported file systems include Btrfs, ext2, ext3, ext4, FAT16 and FAT32, HFS and HFS+, NTFS and others.
Based on the unstable branch of Debian, known as "Sid", from 24 May, the latest GParted Live update uses the 2.6.38-5 Linux kernel and includes a new version of GParted (0.8.1). The developers note that the update fixes problems with safe graphics settings mode and fail-safe mode if KMS was on.
Details about the update can be found in the release notes and in the change log. GParted Live 0.8.1-3 is available to download from SourceForge.net and is licensed under version 2 of the GNU General Public Licence.
