Notes: The project has a page on Launchpad and a couple different repositories, but the one listed here (the svn repo) is the one that is actually under active development.

Notes: Although the author claims GPT fdisk to be of alpha quality, I haven't found any errors while using it, even using different options. It has features like setting any arbitary Partition type GUID for a partition. Also for 64-bit (x86_64) Fedora (or any Linux), it is better to have a 64-bit binary rather than a 32-bit binary according to the author of GPT fdisk . My idea is that a src-rpm of gdisk is better than a compiled rpm.
