Revision history [back]

I've run into this too. It looks like the package is only for 32 bit systems (spec file line 20) If you look at one of the builds, you'll see that it's only built for the i686 arch.

I'll mail the maintainers to ask why this is so. In the mean time, please use testdisk to recover your partition table. It works really well.

sudo yum install testdisk

Here's a post on how to use it: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Step_By_Step

PS: I'm updating the question title to be more specific to the gpart package

EDIT: I've talked to the maintainer and he's updated the spec in rawhide to also include an x86_64 build (koji:5512626). If you'd like it to be available for Fedora 19/18, please file a bug at http://bugzilla.redhat.com against the gpart component.
