I am running
GParted with a live CD 11.04. Since it's a long job the screen goes into power save mode. When I move the mouse the screen comes back but the display is black and the cursor looks like the editing cursor (I shape). I think the process is still running because I can see the HD light blinking. It's been more than a day that the process is running so I was wondering if there is a way to know the status because the black screen with the editing cursor looks like a freeze. Is there a way to refresh the screen?
In a terminal Ctrl+Alt+1 I ran the command
sudo fdisk -l and for the HD I partitioned I got:
/dev/sdb1 * 1 120901 971128832 83 Linux
/dev/sdb2 120901 121538 5118976 5 Extended
/dev sdb3 121538 121602 513024 83 Linux
/dev/sdb5 120901 121538 5117952 82 Linux swap / Solaris
The partitioning I asked for was:
Primary of around 950 GB (don't remember the exact number)
Extended for the swap of 5 GB
I feel that
GParted is done but I want to make sure before rebooting the system. What do you think?
