Hello, I have a feeling this has been answered, but after a google search, all things I found said I should not be getting an error.
Here's my situation:
My laptop has 2 hard drives, OS and Data. OS had windows. I needed linux for a school thing, so I installed ubuntu on the Data drive. Because it wasn't meant to be a main OS, I only gave it like 20 gb total. Well, for some reason, windows decided to not like this (it ends up freezing 5 minutes after boot, but that's another issue... if you have suggestions though, I'll take them), and so I'm using linux until the semester is out. However... 20gb is way to little for all the programs I need to install now. Here is my current setup:
I want to add the ~20gb of unallocated space to the extended drive. When I try doing it though:
Everywhere I read said that as long as the swap partition wasn't locked, I was fine. I even thought I may have needed a swap partition, that's why I did the 500 MiB tempSwap partition. Didn't work.
I really need to expand my linux partition, any idea's?
sfdisk (I've seen other threads require this type of thing)
