Description of problem:
A newer version of parted is out, which fixes issues related to the
correct reporting of the mount state of partitions under kernel
versions 2.6.x.

From the changelog:
2004-09-06  Andrew Clausen <clausen@gnu.org>
* released 1.6.14

2004-09-05  Andrew Clausen <clausen@gnu.org>
* libparted/disk_dos.c (partition_probe_bios_geometry): fixed the
  call ped_partition_is_active... it wasn't a function call before!

2004-09-04  Andrew Clausen <clausen@gnu.org>
* libparted/disk_dos.c (chs_get_sector): a bitmask operation is more
* libparted/disk_dos.c (chs_to_sector, probe_partition_for_geom):
  replaced 1022 with 1023 for consistency.
* libparted/disk_dos.c (probe_partition_for_geom): added assertions that
  test if the goal has been met.
* libparted/disk_dos.c (read_table, msdos_alloc_metadata):
  Use PED_PARTITION_NORMAL instead of 0.
* libparted/disk_dos.c (msdos_alloc_metadata, add_startend_metadata):
  Now make sure the placeholder/metadata partitions never overlap with
  partitions.  Should get rid of the "overlapping partitions" error
* released 1.6.13

2004-09-03  Andrew Clausen <clausen@gnu.org>
* libparted/disk_dos.c (disk_probe_bios_geometry): check if the partition
  is active before querying if it has the boot flag set.  This prevents
  some spurious error exceptions from ped_partition_get_flag().
* libparted/disk_dos.c (read_table): if we have an invalid partition table
  signature, we now ignore the entire partition table rather than
  dodgey data.

2004-08-31  Andrew Clausen <clausen@gnu.org>
* doc/API: fixed PedDevice documentation.
* libparted/disk_dos.c (msdos_partition_duplicate): now duplicates

2004-08-29  Andrew Clausen <clausen@gnu.org>
* libparted/linux.c (_mount_table_search): now works by comparing device
  major/minor rather than device names.
* libparted/linux.c (_partition_is_mounted, _partition_is_mounted_by_path,
  linux_is_busy): minor cosmetic changes.
* parted/parted.c (_partition_warn_busy): removed the "Ignore" option.
  Users *must* unmount!

2004-08-17  Andrew Clausen <clausen@gnu.org>
* libparted/exception.c (log2): renamed to ped_log2 to avoid clash with
  a new gcc builtin.  Bug reported by David Ronis (thanks!)

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-09 00:05:44 UTC
1.6.12 is already built and has been for a couple of weeks now.  I
can't build newer until after test 2 is released (things are frozen at
this point)

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2005-01-05 21:42:32 UTC
1.6.19 is currently in Rawhide.  Closing this bug.  Reopen if problems show back up.
