Summary     : KDE Partition Manager
Description :
KDE Partition Manager is a utility program to help you manage the disk devices,
partitions and file systems on your computer. It allows you to easily create,
copy, move, delete, resize without losing data, backup and restore partitions.

KDE Partition Manager supports a large number of file systems,
including ext2/3/4, reiserfs, NTFS, FAT16/32, jfs, xfs and more.

It makes use of external programs to get its job done, so you might have to
install additional software (preferably packages from your distribution)
to make use of all features and get full support for all file systems.

Update Information:

* Fix a bug that made it impossible to activate or deactivate a swap file
system.  * Correctly handle linux swap even with newer parted versions.  * Ask
for an administrator's password on startup so that non-KDE users can run the
application from their launcher.  * Use the "blkid" command as an alternative to
"vol_id" if the latter is unavailable.  * Do not crash when using the Oxygen
style under KDE SC 4.4.  * Do not crash when the user clicks in the partition
widget with newer g++ versions.  * Sort devices by name after scanning.  * Don't
disable updates for the partition widget while applying operations. This leads
to corrupted graphics unter Qt4.6.  * Work around a LibParted segmentation fault
when the Linux Device Mapper is used and /dev/mapper has non-existing entries.
* The above also works around a LibParted problem when the BIOS has a floppy
drive configured but none is actually present.  * Set item height in the
partition and devices lists to 32 pixel to make them look less condensed.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update kde-partitionmanager' at the command line.
