Parted Magic 4.6 RC1

Posted on Thursday, November 12 2009 @ 00:10:34 CET by

The Parted Magic OS employs core programs of GParted and Parted to handle partitioning tasks with ease, while featuring other useful programs (e.g. Partimage, TestDisk, Truecrypt, Clonezilla, G4L, SuperGrubDisk, ddrescue, etc...) and an excellent set of documentation to benefit the user. An extensive collection of file system tools are also included, as Parted Magic supports the following: ext2, ext3, ext4, fat16, fat32, hfs, hfs+, jfs, linux-swap, ntfs, reiserfs, reiser4, and xfs.

  • Many fixes and changes for Netbooks.
  • Parted Magic Save Session uses xz instead of 7-zip.
  • Clamav was added, but you have to download the definitions yourself. There is an entry in the panel's application launcher to automate the download. The definitions are downloaded to /root/clamav, so they will be saved in root.xz when you use Save Session.
  • Flash Player can be downloaded and installed from the panel's application launcher.
  • epdfview was added so people can read hardware manuals that normally come in pdf format.
  • A simple program to change the keyboard layout was added to the desktop.
  • Roxterm was replaced by an svn version of LXTerminal.
  • Clonezilla was removed from the main Parted Magic image because it's not possible to make a rescue ISO without downloading a template. I kept getting complaints about this like a broken record. Now we offer Parted Magic - Clonezilla instead, which is far more reliable.
  • The syslinux menus were redone to add more options and break things down into sub-menus. The boot menu is far less intimidating now. Device Mapper RAID and Linux Software RAID have been moved to RAID options for automatic assembly at boot time. Device mapper is no longer automatically started at boot.
  • Super Grub Disk 1 & 2 are both included now from the syslinux "Extras" sub-menu.
  • is no longer on by default.
  • Program Information
