gparted is super nice partition management program

argh… well i guess nobody is perfect, therefore no human made product can be perfect, therefore to become (at least almost perfect) means to learn how to manage one’s errors 🙂

JF Kennedy “An error does not become a mistake – until you refuse to correct it.” (to refuse to learn is a mistake)

this problem was fixed very quickly.

so here is the fix:

(tested on: Linux DebianGiada 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt7-1 (2015-03-01) x86_64 GNU/Linux)

apt-get install gparted; # install gparted - super nice partition management program
gparted-pkexec; # run gparted as root


# if you get an error like, no matter root or non root
mount: bad option. Note that moving a mount residing under a shared
       mount is unsupported.

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.

you are affected by the bug


apt-get install --only-upgrade udisks2; # if allready installed
rmdir: failed to remove ‘/run/udisks2/inhibit-polkit’: Device or resource busy
reboot; # i try to reboot and try again
sudo gparted; # works :) :) :)
