    Libparted Bug Found - Error informing kernel about modifications to partition

    Hi Again,

    Somehow I managed to bork something and now everytime I try to use Gparted Libparted Bug Found - I get the following error:
    Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/sda4 -- Device or resource busy. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/sda4 until you reboot -- so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting.
    Trying to perform any task other than labelling partitions results in GParted crashing.
    Also, trying to install any other distro's fails when at the partition stage. Currently, only Ubuntu runs (the original Linux OS, all others were removed).

    This happens regardless of how I access GParted.

    Any ideas how I fix this?

    Many thanks.
