Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189000
parted rescue segfaults
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:30 EST
Description of problem:
Trying to recover from a problem shrinking a hfs+ partition (see Bug #18899), I
tried deleting the partition via parted, thinking that rescue might restore the
partition to the size that OS X sees. however, immediately after asking for the
start, parted segfaults.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. delete (unused) partition X
2. try rescue, giving it the starting point of the partion
parted rescues the partition
sorry, the reference to the previous shrink bug should be Bug #188998.
Even if parted wasn't segfaulting, you wouldn't be able to resize HFS+. Parted
can only shrink HFS and HFS+ partitions, not increase them.
Closing as a dup of Bug #188998.
