Updated parted packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The parted packages provide tools to create, destroy, resize, move, and copy hard disk partitions. The parted program can be used for creating space for new operating systems, reorganizing disk usage, and copying data to new hard disks.
Prior to this update, the libparted partition_duplicate() function did not correctly copy all GPT partition flags. This update modifies the underlying code so that all flags are correctly copied.
All users of parted are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
