I've found in Suse 10.0 a partition tool which can increase the size of a partition. Fine. But to increase / I must unmount it and then the partition tool will not work.
Can I change my shoes while standing in them?
Can I call the partion tool from the command line after unmounting the root. Or must I install a second instance of Suse to deactivate the partition and resize it?
tried Knoppix and it is from 2004 and doesn't like my graphics at all--won't even go into command line.
Download the latest CD.
Personally I hate live-CDs and instead I always have at least two distros installed on two physically separate hard drives.
This way I can easily tear apart and rebuild the other partition table from the comfort and safety of a fully functional familiar OS.
So knoppix is rolling now, however it has no Yast, so it has no partitioning tool.
Wrong! The partitioning tool of YaST is just a GUI for parted. In knoppix you can use qparted or, as I prefer it, cfdisk and resize_reiserfs from command-line. Remember, YaST may be a SUSE tool only, but other distros have their own way to do the same jobs.
