About GParted LiveCD
CD now uses kernel modules; rebuilt X.Org 6.8.2 to be modular; rebuilt libusb 0.1.12; rebuilt ncurses 5.4 to save space; updated to Leafpad 0.8.9, udev 089, Fluxbox 0.9.15.1, Linux kernel 2.6.16.4, GTK+ 2.8.17; added module-init-tools 3.2.2, Synaptics 0.14.4; added support for Synaptics touchpads. The power and simplicity of GParted on a biz-card size LiveCD.

The CD aims to be fast, small in size (~30mb), and use minimal resources to get that disk partitioned the way you want it. GParted LiveCD uses Xorg, the lightweight Fluxbox window manager, and the lastest 2.6 Linux Kernel.

The release notes for GParted Live 0.3.9-13:
  • This release is a bugs fixed release with some minor updates.
  • Based on Debian lenny on Nov/27/2008. Kernel 2.6.26-10 is used now.

  • Package cryptsetup was added in create-gparted-live. Thanks to Bodo P. Schmitz for this idea.
  • Instead of entering X automatically, we can choose to configure xorg.conf first.

  • The icon of USB on desktop was removed since it does not fit the way USB flash drive was made.
  • Updated with newer live-initramfs 1.139.1. Support fetch=tftp://$IP/filesystem.squashfs function for PXE booting.
2007-04-17 00:00:00.0 GParted LiveCD 0.3.4-6 is available    View
GParted LiveCD 0.3.4-6 has been released. Changes: we now use Squashfs LZMA witch allows best compression and reduces the file size to 45 MB; upgrade to X.Org 7.2 offers better support and auto-detection for video and resolution, but old mkxf86config is still available as an option in GRUB, if needed; the new 'Macbook' option fixes the double keystroke issue with Mac; two new scripts are born to help users to build GParted LiveUSB - first one can be used to mount a USB key and also offers the possibility to run the second one, which copies needed files to the freshly attached USB stick and apply syslinux to make it bootable; kernel has been updated to 2.6.20.6.
2006-09-08 00:00:00.0 GParted LiveCD 0.3-1 has been released now    View
This version has some minor improvements. Nothing I can say here can top full move support in GParted, so I won't bore you with too many details. The coolest things are the new artwork by Junel Mujar and it's now possible to boot from a hard drive. The hw_random crash has also been fixed.
2006-08-14 00:00:00.0 GParted LiveCD 0.2.5-5 is available now    View
Minor update to fix some problems in the new video card detection. Some cards were given the wrong driver and starting X was not possible without manually editing the xorg.conf file. If X fails to start use the 'manual video card' option in the boot menu. This reverts the system back to the behavior of 0.2.5-3 for video card selecting. I added a screen shot program for reporting bugs. The 'Boot failure: Unknown keyword in config file' is fixed.
2006-08-10 00:00:00.0 GParted LiveCD 0.2.5-4 has been released now    View
This a big bug-fix release that comes with some other minor new goodies. Video cards are now auto-detected, please file a bug if a problem is found. A boot menu was added that allows you to load modules, access a bash shell, and load the CDROM into memory to free the CDROM drive. This boot menu was a lot of work, I hope you like it.
2006-07-11 00:00:00.0 GParted LiveCD 0.2.5-3 has been released    View
I added some goodies people have been asking for: Partimage, GRUB, rsync, fdisk, cfdisk, and sfdisk. Links has also been included to view LarryT's documentation while running the live CD and live USB. Some other stuff was upgraded like adding a shutdown menu and the entire layout of the root filesystem. The entire root file system is compressed with SquashFS and the boot process has been vastly changed. This saved almost 5 MB to add extras. The kernel was also updated to Linux 2.6.17.4.
