    Question Essential Repartition Too Tricky for this Newb

    Hello! For a good while, I've been stuck using a very outdated, unsupported version of ubuntu (9.10) due too-small linux partition. Last time I checked, the only volume I use only takes a small % of my whole system, but GParted won't let me resize my partitions.

    The option to resize is greyed out of the right-click menu.

    (One partitions (ntsf) has a warning; but I have no idea why Gparted wouldn't be able to read its contents.)

    I've never repartitioned, and am a total noob when it comes to even basic-seeming things, so I would deeply appreciate some help with the actual partitioning, as well.

    Here's the sudo fdisk -l readout:

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 1 192 1536000 27 Unknown
    Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
    /dev/sda2 * 192 13843 109655142 7 HPFS/NTFS
    /dev/sda3 13844 14594 6026424 5 Extended
    /dev/sda5 14555 14594 313344 82 Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda6 13844 14554 5711076 83 Linux
    And the df -h readout:

    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda6 5.4G 4.5G 610M 89% /
    udev 497M 252K 497M 1% /dev
    none 497M 332K 497M 1% /dev/shm
    none 497M 212K 497M 1% /var/run
    none 497M 0 497M 0% /var/lock
    none 497M 0 497M 0% /lib/init/rw
    /dev/sda2 105G 34G 71G 33% /media/SQ004286V02
    If there's any more info anyone needs, please feel more than welcome to ask! Thanks muchly ^_^
