Updated parted packages that fix three bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The parted packages allow you 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, editing partitions on a mpath device udev could, under certain circumstances, interfere with re-reading the partition table. This update adds the dm_udev_wait option so that udev now correctly synchronizes.
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 and adds a test to ensure correct operation.
All parted users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
