How do I get the space?


cfdisk 2.12

Disk Drive: /dev/hda
Size: 120000000000 bytes, 120.0 GB
Heads: 255 Sectors per Track: 63 Cylinders: 14589

Name Flags Part Type FS Type [Label] Size (MB)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pri/Log Free Space 104839,42
hda5 Logical Linux swap 526,42
hda6 Logical Linux ReiserFS 14632,78

I've now managed to finally get rid of windows...I think..
How Can I get the free space to become a part of Hda6 which is the main Linuxdrive, so all Hdspace is on one drive?

Either mount it as-is (fat32/ntfs) or create a new, linux based filesystem. To create the filesystem:

mkreiserfs /dev/hda1 [as root]
reboot

This will create a reiser filesystem on your old windows partition, but first backup any files on your windows drive!! Also, make sure lilo is installed to mbr (/dev/hda) not /dev/hda1.
Then I would tag it on at /usr/local/. (see "man fstab")

edit: or maybe /home. (there are lots of posts dealing with using /home as a mountpoint)

Is this Possible!!!

Is it possible to 'melt' two partitions in to one?

cfdisk 2.12

Disk Drive: /dev/hda
Size: 120000000000 bytes, 120.0 GB
Heads: 255 Sectors per Track: 63 Cylinders: 14589

Name Flags Part Type FS Type [Label] Size (MB)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pri/Log Free Space 104839,42
hda5 Logical Linux swap 526,42
hda6 Logical Linux ReiserFS 14632,78


The free space into hda6? And how(step-by-step) can a newbie do it?

no need to "resize" anything, just mount it at a convenient point. Search forums for "mount patitions" or similar.

you should use a partition tool such as Partition Magic 8 to do this.

PS
in the future please include something relavant to the issue in the thread name.

Don't post the same question multiple times. (Why can't people understand that!?)

open a terminal and type:

su
[password]
mkdir /mnt/oldcdrive
pico /etc/fstab

then paste this line into your fstab:

/dev/hda1 /mnt/oldcdrive auto noauto,user,rw 1 0

then press ctrl+x then y then enter to save your changes. use "mc" if "pico" is not on your system.

then type:

umount /dev/hda1 #(just in-case)
mkreiserfs /dev/hda1
reboot.

mount it using kdiskfree or similar

good luck, im off to bed

Please do not post the same thread/topic more than once. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
