Rescuing a partition table

Postby Bob Hunter » 08 Mar 2005, 17:25

Hello, I used the debian ppc 3.0 iso cd from LordSutch and had the HD partition table
erased by fdisk. It is not my fault, however. I was using fdisk to reorder partition 3
into partition 1, a simple task using the built-in operation. Using fdisk from the above
iso, however, erased the partition table. Believe me, I am careful when typing with fdisk...

I am now rescuing the disk using SystemRescueCD-PPC 0.2.0, but I do not have a printout of the partition table as it used to be. In i386 systems, the utility gpart is of great help in similar situations. I observe that this utility is missing in SysResc for ppc.

Questions.
1. is gpart available at all for ppc?
2. if it is, would it be possible to add it to SysResc for ppc?
3. if not, is there an alternative tool for the task?

Thank you for your time.

Bob

No, it is not. The CD does not include it.

I am now downloading a full live iso of Gentoo, and hope
to find this tool inside.

... qtparted is just a gui for parted. Not very useful.
