    You can use the resize2fs command to increase as well as decrease the size of a partition. See
    Code:
    man resize2fs
    for instructions.

    Are you using live installer not your install on hard drive?
    You have to unmount all partitions, so you cannot run from working system.
    Even with live installer, you usually have to click on swap and swap off to unmount it.
