I previously had the following partitions on my
- - /home - /var - /tmp - swap
Now I deleted
/tmp and the swap partition of that drive. This leaves me with around 35G of empty space. I tried booting the computer with Kubuntu 12.04 and use the partition tool to resize it, but it gave errors about being unable to set the partition geometry. This is the current state of the system:
Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders, total 625142448 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes Disk identifier: 0x0719ee6e Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda2 2046 593893375 296945665 5 Extended Partition 2 does not start on physical sector boundary. /dev/sda5 2048 554829823 277413888 83 Linux
I would like to use
sda completely for
/home without reformatting the drive. Those 35G are not worth moving the data from and to the device, I would say currently. Is there a way to resize without loosing the data?
