parted warning - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hello everybody. I have a problem with parted, I think... I tried to resize and move some partitions, but I incurred in this: % (parted) check 1 % 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? What's the problem? How can I fix it? Thanks, *Guldo*...

    Default parted warning

    Hello everybody.
    I have a problem with parted, I think...
    I tried to resize and move some partitions,
    but I incurred in this:
    % (parted) check 1
    % 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?

    What's the problem?
    How can I fix it?

    Thanks,

    Oh, sorry, I forgot: partitions are in ext3,
    on a single device, and I'm running
    Debian Sid
    Linux 2.6.0
    GNU Parted 1.6.6

    Thanks,

    No problem. Ignore it. I've done that a couple times with no
    problems - except that Partition Magic V5.0 can no longer see my
    Windows partition (Windows and Linux both can and everything works
    fine.)

    The interesting thing is that Partition Magic will complain about a
    partition table adjusted by parted.

    None of these things know what they're doing but they all insist on
    proclaiming that "some other program" has caused a problem.
