Description Telsa Gwynne 2000-10-14 21:23:51 UTC
I apologise for dumping this in fdisk: it's the closest I can think
of to parted. Bug on the lack of a parted category forthcoming: in
the meantime, I hope I can assign it to the right person.

I have a Linux box which has partitions made when I was slightly
over-excited. After a few years, it becomes abundantly obvious I
need to alter it. parted looked like exactly what I need. However,
it lives in /sbin and is linked, apparently, to things in /usr/lib.
So I can't mess with / or /usr. And unfortunately, that means I can't
rearrange things, because /usr is smack in the middle of the things
to rearrange.

Would it be possible to have it linked in a way such that it doesn't
use libraries in /usr? (Or that it doesn't live in /sbin. Either :))
