expand filesystem


dear all. i do have an image of a system with all the settings and i got it flashed to the new drives (cf, sd, hard disk....). the problem i am facing is that the original image is 2GB and it does not see the whole space of the disk. now everytime that i have to expand it i mount it to another system and through gparted i do system expansion.
I came across raspberry and i have seen the raspi-config(https://www.raspberrypi.org/document...aspi-config.md) they do have and it is really cool. it has a function to expand the partition without user interference.
is there a way to have a tool like this in debian 6 or 7 so i could call it and expand the partition?

i think the command would be growisofs. maybe you could run parted/gparted and expand all the dropdowns on the log tab to get hints at what it is doing (i dont have it in front of me so i forget where to look exactly).

Is not iso9660 filesystem readonly? growisofs only adds data but it does not allows dynamic read/write.

You can put a script to do that.

It depends on how your drive is partitioned. You can see how others have created a similar script below. The method used below is for single one partitions. You delete the original and create a new one that uses the entire space of the drive. Then the actual filesystem is resized.
