I wish now to get a new partition (8-10 Gb let's say) for installing a new distro. How can i do this without destroying all i have?
Also, i was thinking about reducing the size of tmpfs partition: 1.3 looks a bit an overkill, to me.
With gparted i have /dev/sda so partitioned:
sda1 partition, file system ext3, flagged as boot (190M, Used 20 Mb)
sda2 partition, file system unknown, flagged as LVM. (186 Gb, i cant see however how much space is used having an exclamation mark on it)
in sda2 i find
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol01p1, file system linux-swap, 1.94Gb that i can resize, format, etc. etc
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00p1 (with the exclamation mark near it), file system ext3, 184.12 Gb. I cant see how much used and how much left and i cant do anything but unmount it.
There is a way to resize this partition in order to retrieve the 10 Gb?
Thank you anticipately
