Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

KDE Partition Manager allows you to manage your disks, partitions and file systems: Create, resize, delete, copy, backup and restore partitions with a large number of supported file systems (ext2/3, reiserfs, NTFS, FAT32 and more).

It is a KDE4 application, so you will need KDE4 libraries to run it on your computer. It also makes use of external programs to get its job done, so you might have to install additional software (preferrably packages from your distribution) to make use of all features and get full support for all file systems.


Yesterday, the first stable build was released (1.0.0).

Download KDE Partition Manager (Kubuntu 8.10 and 9.04 .deb; for Fedora 10 and 11, Mandriva 2009, SUSE 11. 1 you will need to add some repositories). It even comes with a LiveCD which you can download from the same location.
