    Question Gparted formating options greyed out except for hfs.

    I recently tried to format my flash disk (was unmounted) but all formating options were greyed except for hfs (Gparted was ran with root privileges). It also gave an error that I needed to install dosfstools & mtools. The problem is, the two utilities it was asking for were already installed in the system. The following utilities are also installed in my system:

    • hfsutils

    • squashfs

    • reiserfs

    • e2fsprogs

    • jfsutils


    openSUSE 11.3, Kernel 2.6.38.

    If you use gnome
    Install gnome-disk-utility

    Then just right click the device form the desktop > format

    Gnome-disk -utility works beautifully.Thank you very much. Yes, I do use Gnome.

    On another note, I have been looking for WebHTTrack rpm which was previously available for openSUSE but seems to have disappeared completely from the Internet. Do you have the rpm by any chance? I am an University student and I desperately need this utility to rip articles and lengthy online tutorials.

    It does look like the source is still there
    Download HTTrack Website Copier 3.44-1 - HTTrack Website Copier - Offline Browser

    Some kind person may be able to build it in to the build service
    or a build from source may be easy enough
