    Default partition editor

    Hello everybody.

    Is there a partition editor on opensuse like gparted (installed on the system, no live cd)?

    Thank you.

    Yes, go to YaST - system - partitioner. Before you fiddle, make sure you know what you are doing & backup before fiddling.

    Also if you are more comfortable with gparted - it is available to install from Packman repository.

    Hello; sorry, this is not an answer, but better a new question on this matter:

    I have installed my opensuse11 onto an 80GB hdd, shared in dual/boot with Vista.

    The problem is that I would like to resize my linux partitions, in order to give a better dimensioning and to utilize some unallocated space, as reported by GParted.

    The fact is that I am a bit afraid about the risk to loss data, since the unallocated spaces are not contiguous between the partitions.

    Also I am thinking to reduce the swap space from 2GB, to 1GB, since I never seen swap utilization until today.

    This is the output of fdisk -u -l

    linux-turion64:/home/marco # fdisk -u -l

    Disco /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 byte

    What do you suggest I could do, in order to resize safely my hdd and what do you means for "backup your data" ? That's refers to root filesystem as well, or just to home dir?

    Thank you for your attention.
