I recently got a message while updating some programs that my /boot is full. I've been on other posts and everyone says delete files in /boot but I thought making it bigger seems more logical and better long-term if it gets full again. I right clicked on the /dev/sda2 and click resize but it doesn't move. Any ideas?

If this doesn't work I'll use SystemRescueCd and try again.

    Did you shrink the other partition first? If you have no free space, you can't expand a partition – msrd0 Oct 31 '14 at 21:10
  • I tried to shrink the sda2 partition so I can expand the boot partition. But the buttons are not pressable. – gogobebe2 Oct 31 '14 at 21:40

I figured it out. It's definitely due to the encryption. GParted sees such as un-partitioned - so can't do much to it.

Unfortunately it's going to be a command-line fix only. Here's a writeup on how to do it under Ubuntu: ResizeEncryptedPartitions - Community Help Wiki
