I tried yum install gparted

It says no package found.

Can I install rpm packages in CentOS or is that only for RedHat?

I mean, if I have rpm for RHEL, can I install it on CentOS 5?

Was thinking, but since CentOS 5.5 gparted is included in the distrib, no? – Anarko_Bizounours Jun 17 '11 at 11:15

GParted is available in the EPEL package library.

CentOS is binary compatible to the matching RHEL release (e. g. CentOS 5.5 and RHEL 5.5). The RPM which works on RHEL of the same version should also work on CentOS.

Just in case someone would have the same problem as I with missing libparted - you are most probably installing wrong version of gparted. On CentOS 6 you can simply use this:

rpm -Uvh

You can make sure you use the latest version by going to this page:

Installing the EPEL repository correctly would solve this problem. – Michael Hampton Jun 7 '13 at 17:43
I've uninstalled and reinstalled twice (just to make sure I haven't copied wrong link). For whatever reason it always wanted to download gparted el5 (and reported missing libparted when I was trying to install it). – Nux Jun 7 '13 at 21:54
