How do I increase my "/" partition space using unallocated space?(bodhi linux)


My disk "/" is running out of space (1.08 GB left) and I was wondering is there a way to increase the partition space using the unallocated space (98GB) so that I can install more software?
(Gparted image attached).

Yes:
  1. make a backup of your complete hard drive (you have been warned)
  2. shut down the machine
  3. boot into any live Linux that contains the gparted program
  4. move around your logical partitions so that you can grow/resize your root partition
  5. Apply changes, and wait...
  6. Reboot - be prepared that this might fail because your partitions UUIDs have changed, you might need to edit /etc/fstab and/or /boot/grub/grub.cfg (the best would be to do that befroe rebooting I guess)

Have you investigated what is consuming the space? The first suspect would be unmanaged log files in /var/log.

gparted is a "sliding block" game - just grab the partition to move and slide it. Note you have to "apply" change(s) to make them permanent - I prefer to apply each change individually to make sure it worked rather than make several changes at once.
