NAME   Début   Précédent   Suivant   Sommaire   Pré   Accueil
GNU Parted - a partition manipulation program  

SYNOPSIS   Début   Précédent   Suivant   Sommaire   Pré   Accueil
parted [options] [device [command [options...]...]]  

DESCRIPTION   Début   Précédent   Suivant   Sommaire   Pré   Accueil
parted is a disk partitioning and partition resizing program. It allows you to create, destroy, resize, move and copy ext2, ext3, linux-swap, FAT, FAT32, and reiserfs partitions. It can create, resize, and move Macintosh HFS partitions, as well as detect jfs, ntfs, ufs, and xfs partitions. It is useful for creating space for new operating systems, reorganising disk usage, and copying data to new hard disks.

This manual page documents parted briefly. Complete documentation is distributed with the package in GNU Info format; see near the bottom.

COMMANDS   Début   Précédent   Suivant   Sommaire   Pré   Accueil
The block device to be used. When none is given, parted will use the first block device it finds.
[command [options]]
Specifies the command to be executed. If no command is given, parted will present a command prompt. Possible commands are:
check partition
Do a simple check on partition.
cp [source-device] source dest
Copy the source partition's filesystem on source-device (or the current device if no other device was specified) to the dest partition on the current device.
help [command]
Print general help, or help on command if specified.
mkfs partition fs-type
Make a filesystem fs-type on partition. fs-type can be one of "fat16", "fat32", "ext2", "linux-swap", or "reiserfs".
mklabel label-type
Create a new disklabel (partition table) of label-type. label-type should be one of "bsd", "dvh", "gpt", "loop", "mac", "msdos", "pc98", or "sun".
mkpart part-type [fs-type] start end
Make a part-type partition with filesystem fs-type (if specified), beginning at start and ending at end (by default in megabytes). fs-type can be one of "fat16", "fat32", "ext2", "HFS", "linux-swap", "NTFS", "reiserfs", or "ufs". part-type should be one of "primary", "logical", or "extended".
mkpartfs part-type fs-type start end
Make a part-type partition with filesystem fs-type beginning at start and ending at end (by default in megabytes).
move partition start end
Move partition so that it begins at start and ends at end. Note: move never changes the minor number.
name partition name
Set the name of partition to name. This option works only on Mac, PC98, and GPT disklabels. The name can be placed in quotes, if necessary.
Display the partition table.
Exit from parted.
rescue start end
Rescue a lost partition that was located somewhere between start and end. If a partition is found, parted will ask if you want to create an entry for it in the partition table.
resize partition start end
Resize the filesystem on partition so that it begins at start and ends at end (by default in megabytes).
rm partition
Delete partition.
select device
Choose device as the current device to edit. device should usually be a Linux hard disk device, but it can be a partition, software raid device, or an LVM logical volume if necessary.
set partition flag state
Change the state of the flag on partition to state. Supported flags are: "boot" (Mac, MS-DOS, PC98), "root" (Mac), "swap" (Mac), "hidden" (MS-DOS, PC98), "raid" (MS-DOS), "lvm" (MS-DOS), "lba" (MS-DOS), and "palo" (MS-DOS). state should be either "on" or "off".
unit unit
Set unit as the unit to use when displaying locations and sizes, and for interpreting those given by the user when not suffixed with an explicit unit. unit can be one of "s" (sectors), "B" (bytes), "kB", "MB", "GB", "TB", "%" (percentage of device size), "cyl" (cylinders), "chs" (cylinders, heads, sectors), or "compact" (megabytes for input, and a human-friendly form for output).

KNOWN ISSUES   Début   Précédent   Suivant   Sommaire   Pré   Accueil
ext3 filesystem resizing does not currently work, please use resize2fs(8) instead.

Resizing partitions with an ext3 filesystem will not generally work because of the above issue. Use resize2fs(8) to resize the filesystem and resize the partition manually using fdisk(8) or a similar tool. For LVM situations, you will need to use the LVM commands to resize the LVM elements.
