I have a live distribution of Kali running on a usb with persistence. However, after installing updates and a few new software packages, the root drive is pretty much out of space.
How do I go about resizing this? I've tried booting GParted on a separate live USB and extending the drive, however GParted puts a little yellow triangle to the left of the
/dev/sdb1 partition and essentially locks it.
I have also tried resizing the disk during runtime using
resize2fs but to no avail. I have been at this for hours now and I'm at breaking point so if anyone could help me out i'd very much appreciate it.
Below is a copy of my
fdisk -l output:
