PARTED(8)                 GNU Parted Manual                PARTED(8)



NAME
       GNU Parted - a partition manipulation program

SYNOPSIS
       parted [options] [device [command [options...]...]]

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual page documents briefly the parted command.  Com‐
       plete documentation is distributed with the  package  in  GNU
       Info format; see below.

       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.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
              displays a help message.

       -i, --interactive
              prompts for user intervention.

       -s, --script
              never prompt the user.

       -v, --version
              displays the version.

COMMANDS
       [device]
              The block device to partition.

       [command [options]]
              Specifies a command to parted. If no command is given,
              parted will give you a command prompt. Commands are:

              check partition
                     does a simple check on partition.

              cp [source-device] source dest
                     copies the  source  partition's  filesystem  on
                     source-device  (or  the  current  device  if no
                     other device was specified) to the dest  parti‐
                     tion on the current device.

              help [command]
                     prints  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
                     Creates 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 (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  (in
                     megabytes)

              move partition start end
                     move  partition  to  start  at start and end 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

              print  displays the partition table

              quit   exits parted

              resize partition start end
                     resize the filesystem on partition to start  at
                     start and end at end megabytes

              rm partition
                     deletes 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 a LVM logical volume if that  is
                     necessary

              set partition flag state
                     change  the  state  of the flag on partition to
                     state. Flags supported 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"

KNOWN ISSUES
       ext3 filesystem resizing, copying and creating  do  not  cur‐
       rently work, please use tools like resize2fs(8) and mke2fs(8)
       instead.

       Resizing partitions with an ext3 filesystem will  not  gener‐
       ally  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.

       Parted also missbehaves when certian type  of  arguments  are
       used.   If  the  syntax used to describe offsets from the end
       '-1s' is used in the command line, '--' must  be  used  after
       OPTIONS  so as not to confuse getopt.  Eg: parted -s /dev/sdb
       -- mklabel gpt mkpart primary ext2 1s -1s
