how to change the disk size on the fly?
Hi All. A couple of years back when I used to use Windows, I used to make heavy use of PartitionMagic to resize the partitions on the fly, obviously not the C: but others. When I installed Linux[fedora9 to be precise]I left around 8/10 GB of disk in windows partition [NTFS] which is accessible in linux. Now my basic disk in which the "/" directory exists is running short of space ( now i've around 2 out of 10GB left). So I want to know of something similar to PartitionMagic or maybe some command which I'm not aware of to do the same, change the root partition on the fly. Please help me. I'm running Fedora9 18.104.22.168-29.fc9.i686 machine with 512MB of memory. Thank you in appreciation.
