Thread: Stupid mistake, but can I fix it?

    Default Stupid mistake, but can I fix it?

    I had installed OpenSuse 11.1 on my desktop and got it working great. I wanted to do the same for my laptop.

    However, I stupidly forgot to set the hard drive sizes for the laptop and my /home and / are very low GB size. Is there a way to fix this without re-installing? I have got all the latest updates and have already configured a couple tweaks for it and I don't want to do it again.

    I found out by trying to download a large file online - not enough space to save the file...



    Thanks alot.

    GParted LiveCD you can download from the net ( GParted -- Welcome )

    Remember that you should always take backups of important information before resizing partitions.

    the short answer is yes, it is possible....*maybe*...depends on what
    you put where and how much unused space is available, and where that
    space is...

    you might post if you have other systems on that drive (is it dual
    boot?) and, if it is dual boot: did you defrag the game partitions
    first? and are you willing to squeeze them some (more)...and, do you
    need a partition that both the real and game system can read/write
    too....stuff like that...

    and the output of these two

    cat /etc/fstab
    df --print-type

    would be very helpful in helping you..

    I will post those outputs later. Right now, I can tell you that I did defrag before the install and it is a dual boot with Vista64. Thanks for the help.
