I think gpart is the newer disk partitioning program for FreeBSD, replacing the older gpt still used in NetBSD and DragonFlyBSD.

gpart in FreeBSD supports partition types suitable mainly for FreeBSD as opposed to more general, including Linux and other BSD.

So I wouldn't expect to find gpart in Linux, though there is a more general gdisk, by Rod Smith:

But I don't think there is any GUI for gdisk.

I believe the latest release is 0.8.5; gdisk is also in FreeBSD ports, latest version there being 0.8.2 as far as I know.
