Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188998
qtparted resize reports failed; linux/macos see different partion maps
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
I used qtparted to try and shrink a hfs+ partition. it reported that the action
failed due to partions being mounted (I don't even know how to mount hfs+!), and
parted/pdisk show the original partition map. upon rebooting into macsox, macosx
and it's pdisk report the shrinked size.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. shrink hfs+ partition using parted
parted returns error
parted returns success
Can you try performing this operation with just the parted command and not the
qtparted frontend? Attach any core files or error messages that you see.

HFS+ resize support is present in parted-1.8.6 in rawhide. Closing this bug.
