    but it didnt work
    after i did what u said yast re-refresh,after it done and i searched for gparted and check it for installation but it didnt install anything "its from packman"
    right after i click accept i asks me if i want to install something else or no!
    i looked at installation summary list gparted and many apps checked to be installed

    Personally i wouldn't install gparted as it will conflict with openSUSE's partitioner.Better off using a livecd of gparted

    This is quite true and I feel Andy has hit the nail on the head. Personally I would use Yast's built in partitioner or more likely a live cd like parted magic or similar. There is whole host to choose from.
