GNU Fdisk 1.2.4 released

I am happy to announce the release of GNU fdisk 1.2.4

GNU fdisk aims to replace various UNIX operating systems' legacy
partitioning tools with libparted-based ones that mimic the
interface of those tools.

Currently implemented alternatives are:

  • util-linux `fdisk'
  • util-linux `cfdisk'

Both versions have a compability mode and a GNU mode
that offers additional features.


In this release we have better readline/termcap configuration, and support for latest version of libparted.


Gzipped and b2zipped tarballs are available from

and its mirror sites. SHA1 sums may be found there as well.

The web site of GNU fdisk is at:


You can help fdisk by

  • testing and using the existing frontends
  • developing more frontends (e.g. for Mac fdisk or util-linux sfdisk)
