comment How to resize an LVM partition at the beginning
@psusi all my linux partitions are actually ext4. I did fix my problem by splitting my swap partition and creating a small boot partition to run grub from, but I still want to find out if there is an easy way to shift a partition a bit.

as @psusi said, moving has been deprecated and it never supported moving to overlapping location (i.e. can't just nudge the partition a bit, have to move the whole partition to an empty space, then move it back)

comment Checking if PATH contains $HOME/mydir and adding it if not (all in a script)
are you sure this works? I made a typo in my response, which I have now edited. The exit code is in the $? variable, not $0, which should be the name of your script. Change $0 == 0 to $? -eq 0. You should try it with a some path that is not in your PATH
