View Full Version : [ubuntu] Disk partitioning

December 7th, 2009, 08:59 AM
I'm running 9.10 right now. I WAS dual booting Vista, while I got re-acquainted with nix. Today I finally got rid of Vista, marked that partition for format to ext4, and did it.
Here's the question, how do I merge that now free to use space with the partition I'm using for Ubuntu? All I want to run is ubuntu, and have my hole HD dedicated to it.

Here is a screenshot, what, and how should I do it?

Boot into the live cd and resize the nix partition with gparted. You can't resize a mounted partition... that's why the live cd.

Ok, now I don't feel SO stupid, that I wasn't overlooking something obvious. Thanks man
