    Hi there, thanks for the hints!

    The problem is that parted thinks that my partitions overlap.

    Can I use fdisk to de-overlap my partitions (the end-cylinder and the
    begin-cylinder of the next partition are identical!)?


    The bug 418704 you mention above indeed sounds related, but wasn't
    resolved.

    Here comes the output of parted:

    Error: Can't have overlapping partitions.
    Information: Don't forget to update /etc/fstab, if necessary.

    And here goes fdisk:

    Disk /dev/hda: 40.0 GB, 40007761920 bytes
    16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 77520 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0x4bce4bcd

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/hda1 * 1025 11984 5523840 c W95 FAT32 (LBA)

    Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.

    FYI: I just tried to use gparted to resize my partitions.
    But guess what: It doesn't recognize any partitions! :-O

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

  3. Bug#443962: partitions not starting/ending on cylinder boundary

    Hi,
    the bug is more-or-less solved: I deleted the one partition that
    caused the partial overlap. Then parted found my partitions, I created
    a new one, and now everything is fine...
