[got it back] Re: (1.4.24) parted resize lost ext3 partition . . .sugg

I was able to recover the partition.  I was left a bit unnerved
by the apparently wrong "guesses" made by gpart, so I didn't
use it.   I deleted and recreated /usr with "fdisk" instead for
less risk to the other partitions,   but the recovery procedure
you suggested worked great.
Then after editing /etc/lilo.conf and /etc/fstab to adapt to the
minor-number reordering,   a few bad files were identified
with rpm -Va and replaced as needed.  Tue, I start over with
the original parted operation, but **unmounting the partition first**
this time.  I'll let you know how it works out.  It's Dell PowerEdge
hardware raid "aacraid.o I think."   . . .see ya Tue [GMT -5].
Merry Xmas!

I would remove the partition, and "re-discover" it with gpart or
parted 1.6.x.  Then run e2fsck.
