Resizing partitions ??

Hi all ,

We have redhat Linux 7.0 with following linux partiotions ( showing only part )

none 1.7G 0 1.7G 0% /dev/shm
/dev/sda11 4.8G 3.7G 907M 81% /xyz

We want to install some software in /xyz partition . But while installtion it gives space problem as already 81% of the space is
full . Now how do we solve this problem . Do we have to resize the
/xyz partition and use the free available space of 1 GB in it ??
If yes how ? waiting for your comments .

Difficult to say from the information you give, but if you want to resize your partitions you can use "parted" (CLI) or "qtparted" (GUI). I'm not very sure about the name of this last one, could be "qtpart".

Hope this helps ...
