> FYI, there is a possible problem resizing certain JHFS+/JHFSX volumes. Currently the code fails if the jhdr_header size is something other than sector size. When volume size is > 1TiB, depending on the version of Apple's Disk Utility used, the jhdr_header size won't be 512 bytes, is instead 4096 bytes. Details here:
I have rebased master to parted-3.1 and rebuilt pyparted against it. The
new libparted-fs-resize library is included, but there is currently no
user interface for the code.
I am going to be leaving parted at 3.0 for F17, I don't want to
introduce a large change at this stage.
