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.
