Updated parted packages that fix three bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The parted packages provide a disk partitioning and partition resizing program to create, destroy, resize, move and copy ext2, linux-swap, FAT, FAT32, and reiserfs partitions.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, the parted program did not handle unexpected values in the HFS+ filesystem correctly. As a consequence, parted aborted with a segmentation fault. This update adds additional checks for unexpected values to the HFS+ code. Now, parted no longer aborts when handling unexpected values.
Prior to this update, the parted program re-synchronized only the first 16 partitions on dm devices. As a consequence, all partitions after the 16th only appeared after reboot. This update modifies the underlying code to resynchronize all of the partitions. Now, new partitions also appear without a reboot.
All parted users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
