1.203. parted

An updated parted package that fixes two bugs and adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The GNU Parted program allows you to create, destroy, resize, move, and copy hard disk partitions. Parted can be used for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, and copying data to new hard disks.
Bug Fixes
Previously, when a user ran the parted program on the IBM System z platform, the character buffer for the fdasd_check_api_version() function was too short, causing a buffer overflow. This has been fixed by doubling the buffer. The buffer overflow does not occur anymore.
Although the parted program's help information, accessed by running "parted --help", contained a usage example and a description for the "align-check" command, this information was missing from the corresponding manual page. This update corrects the parted(8) manual page to include a description of the "align-check" command.
In order to help tools such as Anaconda support 4KB sector drives, the libparted-provided ped_device_get_optimum_alignment function now prefers to align partitions to 1MB whenever possible. This change has negligible effect on the parted command line tool.
All users of parted are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these bugs and adds this enhancement.
