/ = 98.5% full


My / partition (345MB) is nearly full, so I tried to resize my partitions with DiscDrake, but with no luck.When ever I try to unmount / - /usr - or /home I get this error message:
error unmounting no such file or directory) or ( device or resource busy).When I unmount swap,it does not give me this error message.
Swap = 345MB /usr = 2.1GB /home = 951MB.

Thanks

well that'll be because it is busy. you can't un mount a drive while it is in use, which all of those three WILL be. you'll have to do it using a boot disk or rescue cd or do it on single user mode (type "init 1" into linux as root). but then you won't be able to use flashy things like diskdrake.
