I currently have a MacBook Pro and on it is a 20 GB partition with Ubuntu. I want to make this partition larger, and in doing so, I am perfectly prepared to delete my current Ubuntu partition. I see four partitions on my HD using the Mac's Disk Utility:
10.7.4b - Mac OS Extended (Journaled) (478 GB)
disk0s3 - Linux Swap (1 GB)
DISKOS4 - MS DOS FAT (20.61 GB)
disk0s5 - Mac OS Standard (2.1 MB)
Here are my questions:
1) Could gparted from an Ubuntu boot disk be used to edit the partitions? Disk Utility will not let me.
2) Assuming the response from (1) to be positive, would I erase disk0s3 and DISKOS4 and then use the Mac's Disk Utility to adjust the Ubuntu partition size as described in the Dual Boot Tutorial? (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ma...elInstallation)
3) I'm confused why the 20 GB partitions is showing up as MS DOS, when Linux uses another file system (which I can't remember the name right now.) Can someone tell me why this is?
Thank-you very much!
