I know this has been discussed before about some experiences but I would find puppy much more usable for saving some computers I have if the newer version of gparted was included. The latest version has far greater support for ntfs and a few more nice features that really round it out. Hopefully Barry sees this and decides to upgrade to .3.3. I"ve read some complaints about the new version but I think they've fixed those problems in the new one and it is a partition editor, so it can destroy your data. I like using puppy as a rescue disk because I can do other things with it while I run partimage or gparted, but lately I've had to boot gparted's own rescue cd to get the newer features to fix a windoze drive. Obviously their cd doesn't have all the abilities or functions of puppy. Maybe if it will cause a problem you can just release a new version in petget and not installed by default. My suggestion for the next puppy.

release in petget is a good alternative idea... let us know when it's better known to be reliable.

I tried to compile the latest gparted. I can't remember why but I couldn't finish it.

You need to upgrade parted also, and compile a couple gnome libs.

i dunno about you all but I would like to see some of the advanced scripting pups create a gui to parted rather than using gparted.

gparted is fine but lets imagine a gui created by pups for pups.. I believe that would be even easier for new users.

I love Gparted, very simple to use and reliable (although I do not trust NTFS support yet but that's another story and not about Gparted)
Wouldn't object to a puppified version if someone is up to it (the poeple doing projects like puppy backup and Pfind, they make great interfaces)

Gparted updates, for Puppy versions, is very much dependent on what core programs and files are in the Puppy version.

It has been an issue, because the Puppy version does not have the needed version of something, that the latest version of Gparted needs to work.
It is usually some major core files, that if updated, would cause other parts of the Puppy version to not work.

If you are going to do anything to the format or partitioning of your main storage device. It is always, always, best to use the latest version of the program that is doing the changes.
