View Full Version : [ubuntu] root partition too small
May 17th, 2009, 01:18 AM
I have a question regarding partitioning. How can I enlarge my / root so that I don't get the error msg. not enough space when attempting to update the OS? I have created a separate ext3 partition but do not know how to add it to the root mounted partition with GPARTED.

It all depends on the locations of / and that new ext3 partition. Post the outputs of these commands from a terminal.
Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal
sudo fdisk -l
