I have a hard drive that I need to resize the partitions on, and am having trouble doing it. This hard drive is actually a RAID 5 array, so I can't use gparted. Palimpsest doesn't seem to have partition resizing options, and fdisk doesn't seem to like the GUID partition table I am using on the disk. How should I be going about this?
Yes the name of the array is md0. Gparted does not show the array at all. I used Palimsest to create the partition the first time. This is the message that fdisk gives:
WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/md0'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.
WARNING: The size of this disk is 3.0 TB (3000614387712 bytes).
DOS partition table format can not be used on drives for volumes
larger than (2199023255040 bytes) for 512-byte sectors. Use parted(1) and GUID
partition table format (GPT).
