Default F12: LiveCD & gparted

I thought I'd make a note of this here.

When booting from F12 LiveCD, yum install gparted
downloads fine, but then when one wants to reformat
a [ext4] partition, it barfs quite badly - something about
using one of gparted libraries. It corrupts the tables.

Interestingly, doing an fsck on that partition recovers
the superblock and restores that partition.

Also, if one uses the anaconda's installation program,
it is able to reformat the partition and of course complete
the installation just fine.

I downloaded: gparted-0.5.1-1.fc12.i686 at the time.

FWIW,
Dan
