I have centos 5 virtual server running on ESXi (vsphere 4.1).i have to increase disk space. I increased the size of the virtual machine in Vcenter.But i allready have 4 primary partitions. when i run fdisk /dev/sda, i get this :
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 14 3916 31350847+ 8e Linux LVM
/dev/sda3 3917 6527 20972857+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 6528 13054 52428127+ 83 Linux
From inside my bash script, is there a way to increase my Xdialog default font size? If not, is there any other way to do it? I found a commercial program using Xdialog with instructions on increasing the font size, but they did not say how they did it. But, it does mean it can be done:[URL]...
Need to increase swap size, currently on LVM2, does we can extended the lvm swap presented or need to create a new one. Which one is recomnded new lvm for swap or extend the lvm already exist ? Below are the swap exists in my server./dev/MU_PROJ/lv_SWAP swap swap pri=42 0 0
How big should an LVM volume be to hold a single 32GB file? I thought 33GB would be enough, but apparently not. A volume has run out of space. There are 2 identical volumes holding identical sized files (kvm virtual hard drives in raw format). One (ic030) is showing zero free space and one is showing 97% full. I guess the discrepancy is caused by journalling, directory structure information etc. Possibly also sparseness. How do I calculate the worst-case maximum required LVM volume size? i.e. assuming no sprseness and maximum journal size etc. Here's some info from the file system. (I have removed other volumes form the listings.) The volumes are formatted with ext3.
Some audio output from files or streams is too low. It is obvious that hardware is able to play the same sounds but louder but because of the data it just plays it at some low level even at 100% volume. Vlc can generally increase the volume of a file up to 200%. Is there a way to do the same thing VLC does system-wide and if possible for an arbitrary v percentage value.
If there is no application that does this, where should i look into for libs to do it myself or what code should i modify(eg code in the alsamixer)
Note: Asked the same thing on stackoverflow and they directed me here.
I used to have Windows on my laptop, until I got the blue screen, so I just installed ubuntu. Well everything was ALOT louder on Windows, and I was wondering if there was a way to increase the maximum volume. I have to turn the volume almost all the way up to watch a movie. On Windows 1/4 volume was plenty. I searched, but alot of the answers I saw were that it was hardware limitations, which cant be the case, since it was a ton louder on Windows
I have a problem with my sound. I can't really increase the volume of the sound. I already looked in alsamixer and everything is maximized. With the same headphones in Windows, I can achieve great sound volume. Does someone know why the sound is too low? I started alsaconf and created a new configuration. After that run aumix. Now I have the volume I wanted.
When I downloaded the ISO file thru DAP it showed up as 699.44MB but when I completed the download onto my HDD (XP SP3 & NTFS) it shows up as 716,230KB (see below) with a result when I try to burn on to a CD. I get an error that the file is too large. Whats happening, is there a solution to this?
the system volume on login is max, though my login sound is approximately half. it is not the sound itself, considering when i play it once i'm logged in, its max; just when i log in it seems to be more quiet...
I converted all of my vinyl to flac format, but when I played them in mplayer, the volume was way lower than the mp3's that I downloaded. So, when I have them all in the playlist, I'll have my flac file at a good volume, then an mp3 comes on and blasts me. Is there a command line program that I can use where I can specify a new volume for the flac files? I wanted a command line program so that I can script this entire process. I do not want to sacrifice the quality of the songs that I encoded (at 96kHz).
I have a few VMs set up with virtualbox but am finding that I'm now running out of space in some of the VMs. I really don't fancy creating new VMs and reinstalling and configuring them so is there an easy way to increase the size of the virtual disks?
I have 4 primary partitions on my hard drive. One of these partitions has been divided into 3 logical partitions with some free space left over. The order is this: "swap", "/", "/home", and about 80GB of unallocated space. I want to incorporate that unallocated space into the home partition. I tried this by booting a live CD and starting GParted but it didn't give me the option to increase the size of my home partition or the primary partition as a whole. The only thing it would let me do is decrease the size of my home partition.
i have this directory with multiple images 'pics' and the size is 20mb, and i want to make a .zip or .rar package of this directory but with an increased size so the .zip/.rar file will be 100mb, and then when you extract it the file size is the original 20mb
Finally i have installed ubuntu 10.10 on my home PC. Its working so so good i cant really imagine :-). At the time of partition due to my immaturity, i selected the size of '/' to be 10 Gb. Now i want to increase it without reinstalling ubuntu. Is there any safe way of doing it ? i did some research and came to know that Gparted might be of some help, but i will really be grateful if any of you can guide me.
the use of livecd for example, can i use liveusb instead ? i was thinking of making liveusb of centos 5.5.
Is it possible to increase the size of a partition that is using LVM?I have 5GB of unpartitioned and unallocated space on my disk. I wish to add this to my VG. This free space is physically before the LVM partition.Can I increase the size of the physical partition using pvresize? Or is the only way to to create a new 5GB partition, add it to the VG and allocate it to the LVs? This is not ideal as I wish to minimise the number of partitions I have on the one disk.
