Post there if an important software is missing and has to be added

May I suggest including GParted ( ) as an alternative to QTParted. It's a relatively new project, but it's looking good at the moment.

It looks interesting. But it would require XWindow, and that's the problem. I don't want to add 150 MB software for the XWindow packages on the disc.

I am sorry. But I don't understand why wouldn't GParted, work when QtParted, works with the existing configuration. I feel whatever QtParted works with, GParted would also work. GParted is written in C++ and uses gtkmm as Graphical Toolkit. Dependencies for GParted are Parted >= 1.6.13 and Gtkmm >= 2.4.x. I feel it is always safer to stay with Gtk than Qt.

Gparted has its own livecd which is only 35 MB. Please, consider including Gparted as an alternative for Qtparted :)

any updates on including gparted on sysrescd? seems like it's actively maintained w/ lots of different file system support. however, qtparted hasn't been as active.

I really liked that program! especially that it was in QT, which is much nicer iterface to use that GTK, (it should be called Geek toolkit... :D)
