It's actually pyparted that links with libparted, but a new one should be
available in the updates collection for FC-6.  I build those together whenever I
do updates.  Checking.

Comment 2 David Cantrell 2007-03-12 14:58:53 UTC
Just checked and the update I made for pyparted is in the FC-6 updates
collection.  You need parted-1.8.2-1.fc6 and pyparted-1.8.5-1.fc6 if you want
parted-1.8.2 on your FC-6 system.

A rebuilt mkinitrd was pushed out to resolve this issue, and resolve it for the
future too.  mkinitrd now shows the specific library requires on parted.
