    unmount /dev/sda5

    Thank you for Reply,
    I have executed following command according to your reply,

    (parted) resize 5 176136723 381575941

    But I am getting following error:

    Error: Partition /dev/sda5 is being used. You must unmount it before you modify
    it with Parted.

    again i have given command as
    root@Crayom:/home/crayom# sudo umount /dev/sda5
    then i got
    umount: /: device is busy.

    please help
