I installed parted on a fresh install on a RasPi using zypper. The version
in the armv5tel repository is 2.4-29.1. This version has a bug as I was
trying to make a new partition on the SD card to expand the free space
after copying the image to the card using dd.
The following text is from the output trying to make a new primary partition:
(parted) mkpart primary 29744,0,0 60503,3,31

I went around this and installed from source v.3.11 but I had to
solve for dependencies: util-linux-ng (which I had to install without
ncurses even though it was already installed), termcap and readline.
This last one crippled zypper, so I had to reinstall readline.
My question is, why is it that the parted rpm in the repositories is
not the latest one?
