Ubuntu :: Decrease Partition Size In System And Increase It In XP?
May 4, 2011
Currently, I have on internal HDD 160GB in size. 20GB are for windows XP partition and the rest is assigned for ubuntu partition(s?). i want to make it now more equal in size, but how can i do that? I'm using ubuntu 11.04...
1- Does Linux operating system decrease the original size of the HDD? because first I was only using a Windows 7 Ultimate on my Laptop Lenovo G550 4446 the D:/ partition size was 140 GB Free of 190 GB.. After I installed the Linux ubuntu along with the other Windows 7 I found the D:/ partition size became 68 GB free of 122 GB... Why the hell the size decreased?? Did the HDD destroy?
2- How can I hack Wireless Network of type WPA2/WPA or WEP using the linux? I have heard that I can do that using Shell Konsole, but I can't see Shell Konsole in my Linux ubuntu 10.10... Is it required to be installed over the internet or something, or if it is already installed within the operating system, can you tell me where I can find it?
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 installed ubuntu in my 500GB passport drive. The ubuntu partition size is 120GB. I want to increase the root partition size because i ran out of disk space for "/" I have installed Gparted and accidentally created new partition table. Then all my disk space turned into unallocated space. So, i immateriality rebooted my system. Then, I am not able to boot into the drive. Moreover it is not detecting in windows too. How to undone that "MISTAKE" ??
I copied 10.4 from a 20gig hd. onto an 80 gig hd with Clonezilla and now I can't get Gparted to expand the partition to include the 50 gig that is unallocated. Obviously I cloned the drive incorrectly.
I have a dual boot machine ( win 7 & Ubuntu 10.04 ) which is reporting insufficient space on the Linux partition. I boot up into gparted and reduce the size of the the preceding partition but when I try to increase the size of the following ( linux ) partition, it won't allow it. Attached is a screenshot of the gparted info screen.
I have booted up in a Gparted system disk. I'm trying to use Gparted to resize my current linux partition. It sits on a one HDD with another Windows partition.I have delete the windows partition (626GB) and now want to resize my linux partition to use all this unallocated space. When trying to resize the linux partition (293GB) I am not able to do so. No space is shown to be available to use. I can only make the partition smaller. Can anyone think of why I won't be able to increase my linux partition to use this now unallocated space?
I have a server setup running VirtualBox and several Windows guests. I'm running the box headless and start the windows machines using
sudo vboxheadless -s "WinXP Pro SP3"&
via SSH session from my MacBookPro in terminal. I then connect to the Virtual Machines running MS Remote Desktop from the MacBookPro. All of this works perfectly except that I've run out of space on my partition for Virtual Machines and need to create a few more. I have plenty of room on the HDD but when first installing Ubuntu Server I only partitioned and formated about 1/4 of the drive. Is it possible to run a command in my SSH session at the command line to partition the unused portion of the HDD, format it, and expand my current partition into that space? Or, do I have to use something like gpartedlive, boot from the CD and do the partitioning?
How does one back up the oses and increase the partition size?
I have a dual boot of Windows 7 and Ubuntu and have made the partitions for each too small. I want to save them and then reinstall them on the new partitions. I've tried clonezilla, but it only restores them to the original partitions. How can I reinstall them on the new partitions?
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.
whenever I try to download anything I get the error there's not enough space on my home partition; thus I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me how to increase its size? I'm using ubuntu via vmware workstation.Here is the output of df:
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on tmpfs 254964 0 254964 0% /lib/init/rw varrun 254964 52 254912 1% /var/run
As can be observed above, I have used almost 70% of the available partition space with only 1.7 GB remaining. I have plans to install Microsoft Office 2007 on Wine and I know that 1.7 GB is not enough for the installation. I don't mind reducing the size of my Windows partitions in order to increase the size of the root.
I have done it quite often. Inserted and run the computer from a live CD so that the hard drive is not mounted an changed the partitions. It worked on the old reiserfs when I wiped the windows partition on my laptop to increase the space, it worked on ext3 partitions. Now I resized the swap partition and reduced the NTFS partition on my desktop - no problem. But it does not increase the ext4 partition. No error message it just does not do it. I tried several times with the suggested maximal setting, with a custom setting, etc. It just does not change size. Just for interest I booted into Suse11.0 live CD and tried from there. There I get the answer cannot resize partition as the file system does not allow resizing. Is something wrong with the system or does the partitioner not work with ext4?
fedora 12.i have one partition which is mounted on a rootfiles folder having space of 700gb which is located on a /directory.but when im adding data on rootfiles my /root directory space is also getting increased.so could any one telme how to increase the size of root partition.i want to resize my rootfiles folder to 600db and want to add 100gb to my / directory.how can i do this plz helpme this is important 4 me.first i will free 100gb then i will add 100gb to root directory.but i dont want to loose any data on rootfiles folder.
I have nearly 200GB of space free on the HD with my linux main EXT4 partition, and I'm wondering if I can convert a large part of this to a new NTFS partition that I can use for my windows XP paralell install?
Basically, what do I have to do to resize and create the new partition and how do I get windows to recognize it?
I downloaded ubuntu 10.04 and install it from windows vista (32 Bit) and gave it initial memory 5 GB, but after I started using it I always got a message that I have a very low memory left (16 MB only !!!) and I cannot install any updates or new applications , so is there any way I can expand the File system files without reinstall the OS again????
I am new to Fedora, and I noticed when I opened my home folder that I only had 54GB. My HD is 120, and when I used the disk utility, I noticed that 64GB are in ext4! What?! This was not a problem in Ubuntu, so why has it happened now? Is there anyway I can decrease the size of ext4 and give some of it to Fedora?
On F12 and sure need to upgrade. Way back when I first had a bad disk on the "system" disk that was 80G, I only had a 200G lying around. Next time that happened my other 200G wasn't "big" enough it said, so I put a 500G in there. Now it seems I got more bad blocks etc but I need to lower the size 'cos I don't want to put a 1Tb HDD in there. My question from all of this is, how do I decrease the image so I can put it all on a smaller HDD?
Used space on the system disk's partitions is about 30G, so an 80G disk should be sufficient. What I can think of is that I need to "move" all data to the "beginning" of the HDD, then make an image of it but and the entire disk, just the data. I've tried that with no luck since the image seem to get as big as the HDD, hence why I always needed to increase the HDD all the time.
Desperate to reduce RAM usage of my tiny VPS running Ubuntu 9.04 and Apache2.2.11, here I saw that: On Linux, each child process will use 8MB of memory by default. This is probably unnecessary. You can decrease the overall memory used by Apache by setting ThreadStackSize used by Apache by setting ThreadStackSize to 1MB in.
So I tried to give the suggestion a try. But when I append: ThreadStackSize 1000000 in my /etc/apache2/httpd.conf <IfModule mpm_prefork_module> directive, and restarted apache, it failed with this message: Invalid command 'ThreadStackSize', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration
So I figured out that the relevant modules are neither enabled nor available on apache2. Now I am wondering whether there is a way to decrease the ThreadStackSize without the need to compile apache from source? If not, what should I do?
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 using Kubuntu Amd64 Lucid on my desktop and I have allocated 08.03 GB partition for swap. But today I have noticed that system monitor is showing this as 09.90GB which is incorrect.
I tried deactivating the swap from KDE Partition manager. Even after deactivating swap it still shows the swap as 1.9 GB. So there is clearly 1.9 GB swap added to my system. I am not sure how. Attached screen shot clearly shows the system monitor issue. One possibility is, I have 4 GB (3.7 asper system) RAM comprising two units of 2 GB cards. Is this 1.9 GB read from one of these? I tried to boot the system from Kubuntu AMD64 live CD and then it showed only 8 GB as expected. So not sure whats causing this issue in my installation.
