Can't resize ext3 Partition


Hi,

Like the Name of my Thread already states I can't resize a ext3 Partition.
Here is the Output of parted:
Code:
pfitzner:~# parted /dev/hda
GNU Parted 1.6.21 with HFS shrink patch 16
Using /dev/hda
(parted) p                                                               
Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-152627,835 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0,031   9538,593  primary   ext3       
2       9538,594  10024,936  primary   linux-swap 
3      10024,937 127210,012  primary   ext2       
4     146483,306 152625,344  extended              lba
5     146483,336 152625,344  logical   ext3       
(parted) resize 3                                                         
Start?  [10024,9365]?                                                     
End?  [127210,0117]? 140000                                               
No Implementation: This ext2 filesystem has a rather strange layout!  Parted
can't resize this (yet).
(parted)
fsck.ext3 -f /dev/hda3 doesn't show me any error messages.
I tired to convert the ext3 Partition to ext2 and than do the resizing but I got the same error message.

Here http://www.gnu.org/software/parted/#TOCfeatures it says that parted can resize ext2 and ext3 Partitions as long as the starting point is kept.

Maybe anyone can help me.
Sorry for my bad English.

Thanks Ben

Have you tried typing in the start address explicitly as 10024,937?
