Parted Magic is a small live CD/USB/PXE with its elemental purpose being to partition hard drives. The project has published an update which begins the distribution’s migration to phase out 32-bit editions. “This version has some major changes that might be a big deal to some people, but I don’t think it will be a problem for most users. I was forced to drop the 32-bit kernel after finding out syslinux has an initramfs size limitation. I will include an old version with a 32-bit kernel. You can download it from your file list. 32-bit was going to be dropped in the near future anyway. 32 and 64 was dropped from the boot menus. If you have a custom boot menu or PXE configuration, please make a note of this change. For example, m64.img was renamed to m.img. Parted Magic no longer uses Aufs. The conversion to Overlayfs was nearly 100% done by D.L.C. Burggraaff. This means kernel updates will no longer be delayed waiting for an Aufs patch.” further information, including a list of updated packages, can be found on the distribution’s news page. The new version of Parted Magic can be purchased and downloaded from the distribution’s online store.
