I successfully installed Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS over the weekend on a classic dual boot scenario. I followed the instructions on the below website to create a /boot, /, /home and /swap partition. I then used EasyBCD to tell Windows that it is sharing the computer with another OS. Now when I boot up, the Windows Bootloader recognizes (and I have the choice) of booting into Windows or Ubuntu at startup.
During the install process, I repartitioned my main C:/ drive, allocating 100000MB to Ubuntu. I placed 500MB into /boot, 20000MB into /, 75000MB into /home and 4000MB into /swap. This leaves me with 500MB of unallocated space.
Now that I have my system setup and running, is there a way I can take that unallocated space and add it to my /swap partition? I figure 500MB would be better used in /swap than it would be in any other partition. In hind sight, I should have just allocated 4500MB to /swap at the beginning, but that was a mistake on my part.
I am not sure the best and easiest way to add the unallocated space to /swap. Thanks in advance for anyone that can help.
