Gparted ??


FC7 x86_64. 160 gig harddrive
I'am running Gparted on my Harddrive and I have a 9.00 gig unallocated
partition, and I want to resize my /home partition to include that 9.00gig .
When I do the resize on /home it says that I can only resize /home,
/home 96.90 gig (present size)
/home 99230 (is max. size it will allow me to resize)
/home 44303 ( is the min. size it will allow)
The present size of /home 96.90 gig and adding 9.00 gig to that
would make a total of 105.90 gig for /home, why is it that Gparted
will only allow me to resize to 99230 gig, instead of the full 105.90gig ??

First, a semantic nitpick: You would not re-size /home, you would re-size the partition which is mounted at /home---eg /dev/sda3, /dev/hdb4---somthing like that.

Please do "fdisk -l" and "df" (running as root) and post the results here

The partition should be mounted when doing the above commands, but NOT mounted when attempting to re-size it. Ideally, you would run GParted from a LiveCD so that you are not running any risk of re-sizing a partition that is in use.

Your fdisk output says that sda2 is already at its maximum size---ie its upper limit is right at the start of sda3 (swap).

first, delete swap and recreate it at the end of the disk

then you will be able to resize sda2 to use all available space.

By the way, did anyone say "backup"??---highly recommended before re-sizing.
