Hello List,

I have run into a strange error with GNU Parted 1.6.4. I am running it on a 
mandrake 8.2 box. I have created partitions on my primairy harddisk /dev/hda 
with various tools (DOS fdisk, win2000 partition tool and mandrake 

fdisk -l /dev/hda gives

Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 4866 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1       394   3164773+   b  Win95 FAT32
/dev/hda2           395      4866  35921340    f  Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5           395       893   4008186    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda6           894      2933  16386268+   b  Win95 FAT32
/dev/hda7          2934      3510   4634721   83  Linux
/dev/hda8          3511      3541    248976   82  Linux swap
/dev/hda9          3542      4867  10645782   83  Linux

now when I start parted I get the following error:

/usr/local/sbin/parted /dev/hda print
Warning: Unable to align partition properly.  This probably means that
another partitioning tool generated an incorrect partition table, because it
didn't have the correct BIOS geometry.  It is safe to ignore,but ignoring
may cause (fixable) problems with some boot loaders.
Ignore/Cancel? i
Error: Unable to satisfy all constraints on the partition.
Information: Don't forget to update /etc/fstab, if necessary.

My disk /dev/hdb does not give any problems. Also the diskdrake tool included 
in mandrake 8.2 does not give any error indication. 

Can anyone help me cause I need parted to resize one of the ext2 partitions 
without losing all the data.
