GParted is not a "native" *BSD utility. It is mostly found on Linux recovery/
utility CD/DVD's. It is developed more with Linux in mind, and has always lacked
ufs||ffs modules. So is not suitable for use on *BSD systems. It would be fairly
trivial to create the modules to provide *BSD native support. But those who use
the BSD family of operating systems fave found that sysinstall(8), fdisk(8) and
related, are more than adequate to get the job done. There are also some
very informative docs related to these tasks installed as part of your system,
as well as available from:
It's hard to imagine needing anything else -- even if it's ones very first time.
