Reducing partition size?
Quick question about partition sizing - or more to the point reducing a partition.
Got a nice fresh build running a dual boot windows/Koala. It's a 1.5tb drive, so I gave 500 to Windows (I promise I only use Windows for games ...honest) and the rest to Ubuntu.
But now I have burg running with it's shiny boot menu, I was thinking how nice it would be to have another OS on there (maybe play around with osx86 for example).
However, I didn't think to leave any spare space ...D'oh!
So, looking at the larger Ubuntu partition, can I now re-size that, so that I can give this potential new OS some room to play?
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 54918 441125968+ 7 HPFS/NTFS
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2 54919 182401 1024007197+ 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 54919 182027 1021003011 83 Linux
/dev/sda6 182028 182401 3004123+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
(On another subject - is that cylinder note there something I should look at?)
I've got Gparted installed, but all the options for /dev/sda2 are ghosted ...which I kinda think may answer my question - but thought I would ask anyway
It is a fresh build, so scrubbing and starting again would only be an annoyance rather than a problem - so that's my plan B
Any ideas or thoughts gratefully received
