When partitioning disk devices for F14 on my new x86-64 box, I allocated 100G for / mounted on /dev/sda1. It's now 100% full. I have 365G free space available on the disk. Can I somehow extend /dev/sda1 to use some of this free space?
So, I wan't completely paying attention to the default partitioning that Red Hat Enterprise 6 does.
I was setting up a base image for VMWare and the disk was 200GB, but for some reason the default is for about 40% to go to the root partition and then the rest of it to go to /home (this doesn't include the 2GB or so in swap).
Is there an easy way to recover the space under /home and expand the root partition? Assume there are no user accounts created.
I have been using ubuntu for about a year now. Since then one main thing have evaded me: how to increase the size of /home without reinstalling the OS. I tried to change the size from the default 200mb once while installing and it ended up messing up my hard drive, so I decided not to do it this time around because I have important stuffs on it.
Mobo - Asus M4A78T-E CPU - Phenom II X4 955 RAM - DDR3 1333 dualchannel 8G Display - Samsung 2494 Debian 504 64bit
Where can I download respective drivers. Linux drivers coming with the mobo can't work. There is no driver for Linux on the CD coming with the display. Fonts becomes very large even selecting "8". The screen can't expand to the full size of the display.
i installed ubuntu 10.04 with wubi on Windows 7. It works perfectly. And, i've only installed 5GB rather that 20GB in my partition (from the wubi option at the first time). I made this partition only for ubuntu but silly me i've installed only 5GB rather than to chose 20GB Now the ubuntu is low on disk space! it' only 120MB left from 5GB. My question is, is there any way expand it to 20GB so the partition is fully for home folder, etc? I want my 15GB!
I clean installed Ubuntu 10.10 by shrinking my Windows 7 partition slightly. Now that I want to expand my Linux partition, I shrunk my Win 7 partition from Windows OS. From Ubuntu, the partition manager shows /dev/sda1 contains the Win 7 and unallocated partition. /dev/sda2 contains the Linux and swap partitions. I can't seem to expand my Linux partition (ext4) in sda2 with the unallocated space in sda1. I also can't shift the unallocated space in sda1 to sda2. Any idea how to expand my main Linux partition with the unallocated space?
I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed along side of Windows 7 on the same partition. I'm a bit of a noob as I have only recently got serious about using Ubuntu daily. I was wondering how I could go about expanding the space Ubuntu can use seeing as how I don't have it set up as a separate partition.
I am not sure where to post this so move please if its the wrong place. A few weeks ago i decided to try out Ubuntu, so I installed it as a dual boot, along with Windows 7. Now i have decided to switch fully to Ubuntu, so I have formatted the windows partition. Now however i am not sure how to allocated the unallocated space and expand the Ubuntu partition. Is even possible?
a client brought in an 160GB external HDD and wanted to get the files off it, there appeared to be no partitions on the disk but i thought it may have been formatted to use the whole disk. I tried to mount it as the various FS types the client thought it may have been to no avail.
I ran testdisk on it which told me that it previously had a mac partition table and a 210GB partition on it (which is larger than the disk) could anyone enlighten me as to whether or not this is even possible, and if so how could i retrieve the data?
I have installed Fedora 15 on my laptop a couple of days ago, but now i want to install windows next to it.To do this i have to resize the lvm partition.But at the final step (vgreduce) i get this message:Physical volume "/dev/sda2" still in use.What now? Can someone help me reducing the size of my lvm partition?
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.
I have a 10GB IDE disk that Parted says has a single 10GB partition (/dev/sdb1) which is mounted at /home. However, df and the Gnome file managers see it only as a 3GB partition. It was a 3GB partition when I was using Fedora 9 but the partition was resized to 10GB during the installation of Fedora 11.Can anyone suggest how to make df and Gnome see it as a 10GB partition?
I am running Fedora 15 along with Windows 7 on my Dell laptop. Yesterday, when I was trying to install TeX Live, it stopped in between saying that there is no space left in File System. Even though I have space in my hard drive volumes, space seems to be running out of my system partition which is only 9GB in size (I guess!).I am posting a few results that might help you guys. I have an unformatted 15GB partition. How can I add it to my system partition? And is my var folder too big (1.5GB)? If yes, how do I backup its contents and then delete them? Additionally, the File System shows a folder 'media' (89GB) which links the C: drive that contains Windows 7 and my personal files. Should it remain that way or should I separate it? If the latter, how? I just couldn't find any.
Code: #df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
I am setting up a server and trying to access its partition over the nfs on a client machine. Our server has 4 1.5TB disks and the idea was to make a RAID 5 out of it.Now here is the problem:When I used only 1 disk that is nfs partition was of 1.5TB, I got fine speed(30MBps), but with multiple disks whether I am making 3TB (Raid 10) or 4.5TB (Raid 5), I get a really poor speed of 5-6MBps. I/O just waits.But for all above cases, disk I/O locally works fine.Does anyone knows any NFS limitation that is causing this problem?
When I installed fedora I told the installation routine to use the free hard disk space. I had 98gb of free space. After the installation I look under the MyComputer icon checked the free space which is 45gb. Well I have a hard time believing that I have used half of 98gb already. There must be something going on here.Also.. With regards to the boot manager. It made Fedora the default OS. While I don't really have a problem with that is there a way to change it so that my other OS is the default? I use two operating systems and sometimes one week I'm using one primarily and then things will change.

I use Fedora 12 AMD64 and I partition my HDD with Default partitioning what happen when temp partition is full by files ?Can this happen ? for example my temp partition full by files and my system can not use temp partition .!can I say my Fedora clear temp after each reboot .?
I've just installed Fedora 14 over an old Ubuntu (heron, I think). The old install used a single partition for both / and /home; and I wanted to try to avoid reinstalling /home if possible (but yes, I did back it up). I chose the anaconda option to shrink the old Ubuntu /, and created a new LVM for the Fedora /. This seemed to work perfectly. I mounted the old / on '/host' (an old naming habit), and then mounted individual home dirs into /home using autofs. All seemed fine. However, on my first reboot after the autofs mounts fsck failed. The current situation is as follows:
# fsck /dev/sda6 fsck from util-linux-ng 2.18 e2fsck 1.41.12 (17-May-2010) The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 15360000 blocks The physical size of the device is 15359895 blocks Either the superblock or the partition table is likely to be corrupt! Abort<y>? yes
# dumpe2fs /dev/sda6 | grep 'Block count' dumpe2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010) Block count: 15360000 # dumpe2fs -o superblock=32768 /dev/sda6 | grep 'Block count' dumpe2fs 1.41.12 (17-May-2010) Block count: 15360000 Same thing for all the other backup superblocks I've tried. # echo '15360000 4 * p' | dc 61440000 # fdisk -s /dev/sda6 61439583
Resize2fs tells me to run fsck, and complains of a short read if I try to force. Fsck seems to run fine if I say 'no' to the abort prompt, but doesn't change the problem. Filesystem is ext3. Started with debugfs. First used icheck and ncheck to work out which file(s) had been written to the non-existent blocks past the partition size. Fortunately, there was only one. Deleted that file (can restore it from backup later). Quit debugfs. Now resize2fs -p -f worked perfectly. fsck after resizing was clean. Reboot seems happy. As for the origin of the problem, I would guess there's a rounding bug in the code anaconda uses to shrink partitions.
I am using Fedora core 10. I have changed my partition size of Linux from windows. After I finished resizing the partition, I rebooted my system to the Linux platform. While booting it gave me an error: repair filesytem #1: I don't know what to do?
I want to add Fedora 14 to my triplecore 3GB RAM computer which has windows, Fedora 12 & ubuntu installed. What are the recommendation (e.g. size) for harddisk partition allocation? I can reuse the swap partition, can't I? Should I install Fedora 14 to a single partition (ie. /)? Should I use only ext4?
I have a home directory which is mounted on the LVM partition,How can i reduce the size of LVM partiotion without loosing the data on home directory...whenever i use lvreduce command it show me a warning mesg that the whole data will be lost...reducing the size of LVM partition without loosing my home directory data.
I have a 300 Gb Hard drive, I used to have windows xp on it but decided to install ubuntu, so what I did (after some suggestions) was to create 3 partitions, one of 30 Gb for windows (I use Adobe software), one of 10 Gb for Ubuntu 9.10 and the rest as a common partition used for storage. Started ok, but I really got hooked with ubuntu and now my partition is full!. My question is ( and here is where I show my deep ignorance and shame): can I "expand" the ubuntu partition gaining space from the storage one? If not, how many Gb would you recommend for an Ubuntu partition? I'm using a lot of music/video/graphics production software.
I would like to expand my root partition to the left. I already moved my 100MB /boot partition overand that took like 12 hours with Gparted, so no way do I want to use it for my 60GB partition to gain another 2GB. Is there a faster way? (Besides wiping the partition, creating the new larger one and reinstalling Ubuntu? )
I've heard LVM might be good, but it sounds like I have to do that from scratch as well, and I'd rather not lose all my stuff and start over, I just want to clean up my messy partitioning.
I've got a server that needs more space. To achieve this we added space (by extending the VMware disk attached to it).Normally this isn't an issue, because we just add an new partition and LVM it from there, but this host predates our deployment of LVM everywhere.
Our current theory is that the unallocated sectors can not be assigned because they aren't part of the extended partition, and thus ... we go in a circle.So what i believe the way forward is to extend sda4 so that i can then create an sda10 inside of it. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this? I was thinking gparted may do the trick ... but being a server i'm in runlevel3, with no X...
I am relatively new to Linux and Opensuse. I created the / root partition and now it is growing and maxing out. I have partitioner available to me but how do I change the partition size when the root partition is mounted. Do I login as root and then umount or modify fstab and restart and change from command line or do I format and reinstall everything? I have room to expand but not sure how to manage this?
