  • I think I added enough that the article no longer relies only on references to primary sources and by adding links to it's inclusion in books and Linux base distributions it can be considered notable. I am removing the tags on the main article but leaving the stub identification on this page. Somebody will let me know if I am not qualified to say an article is notable.

Deleted section "Limitations"[edit]

I deleted the section because the information in it was no longer true. It said

"Disk Utility cannot currently re-size a logical volume. It also cannot create partitions of arbitrary size: Its size input field is a coarse-grained slider that does not allow arbitrary byte sizes to be entered."

I checked this on my current system, which is Linux Mint 11 based on Ubuntu 11.04 and includes "Disk Utility 2.32.1", and in addition to a slider next to it is a numeric up/down field (or whatever that GUI component is called) where one can input an exact value with a unit. Supported units seem to be kB (not KB), KiB, MB, MiB, GB, GiB and probably even TB and TiB or higher. A tooltip with exact number of bytes appears upon mouse hover. (talk) 00:54, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Fedora specifics[edit]

As of Fedora 11 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6[1] and CentOS 6 Palimpsest Disk Utility is part of the base distribution and available from the menu at: Applications -> System Tools -> Disk Utility

Really? Wikipedia is a Fedora manual now? (talk) 03:12, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
