Thread: OpenSuse gobbled the whole 600gb drive

  1. #1

    Default OpenSuse gobbled the whole 600gb drive

    1st let me admit anything that is wrong is probably
    my fault as I am green with OpenSuse.
    Stats:
    Dual booting Vista and OpenSuse 11.2
    Hd 1 Vista (80GB)
    Hd 2 OpenSuse 11.2 (600GB)
    I don't want to delete OPenSuse and start over again
    because I had a terrible time with Grub and Dual booting.
    "Easybcd" did not help much.
    What I want to do is resize the OpenSuse sdb3 partition
    to 200gb for OpenSuse and 350gb not used.
    I have no idea how big the sdb3 file is.
    I tried Partition magic and Gparted. Neither would resize
    the OpenSuse sdb3 file.

    Hi
    You will need to post the output from;
    Code:
    sudo /sbin/fdisk -l
    That's a minus sigh and a lower case L at the end.

    Thank you for answering Malcolmlewis.
    Hope this is correct as I don't know how to copy what the
    sudo command listed so I had to hand do it.

    Hi
    Ok what about fstab;
    Code:
    cat /etc/fstab
    Just to confirm what is being used for /dev/sdb3 I'm assuming
    it's /home?

    cat /etc/fstab per your request
    Also just tried Parted Magic and it won't resize the sdb3 partition either.

    What version is your parted? You probably need a recent one with ext4 support.

    Parted Magic 3.5 Has EXT4 Support - Easily partition your hard drives with Parted Magic. - Softpedia

    Thanks for answering ken_yap.
    I just downloaded Parted Magic v. 4.8.iso.

    Maybe I just missed something as it's the 1st
    time I have used it.

    Hi
    You missed the mount points for the above. I'm guessing part-2 is / and
    part-3 is /home please confirm.

    Don't know how to mark this thread as solved.
    Just a matter of using the right part of Parted Magic.
    Thanks for everyones help.
