Re: What is the recommended armhf disk partitioner for use on rotating media?

I like parted or the gui version gparted, but I also have fdisk and
sfdisk.  There's a live CD of gparted which can probably also be
written to a USB stick or a small SD card in a reader.  Having it on
an independent device means you can use it on about anything, from a
new hard drive to an SD card.  Most of my old favorites won't deal
with drives as big as 1 TB so I had to find something new.


Parted (not gui) looks like this:

hp# parted
GNU Parted 3.2
Using /dev/sda
Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands.
(parted) print
