I'm running Hardy, and I have about a 64 gb unallocated partition and an 11 gb partition (this one contains Ubuntu) with a .5 gb swap space. I've opened the Gnome partition editor but I was unable to resize it. I don't know what to do D:

Which partition you want to resize? Remember, you cannot resize a partition you are using or if it's mounted. Therefore, you might want to do that with gparted from the LiveCD.

Hi SilverShadow118.

You should use a gparted disk to change partitions.
