    Default yasts2 partitioner

    Hi,

    Would it be possible in yast partitioner to delete 2 windows partitions with ntfs and merge them with my home folder (ext4)?
    Freedom is power, all i have to do is know how to use it.

    Possibly, depending on the circumstances. We would need more information to advise you further.

    Though do note that partition operations are inherently dangerous (might result in data loss) and require a lot of planning. I would suggest you use a live cd to do the partitioning, since a mounted drive can not be modified.

    Either way make sure what you want to do is possible before proceeding.

    for example

    1. what operating system and version are you using (be sure and mention
    if you have installed from any repo with these terms: factory,
    playground, tumbleweed, or evergreen)

    2. what desktop environment and version are you using, if any

    3. please show us the terminal output *and* input from

    Code:
    df -hlT
    cat /proc/partitions
    cat /etc/fstab
    mount
    sudo /sbin/fdisk -l
    sudo cat /boot/grub/menu.lst
    sudo /sbin/swapon -s
    uname -a

    And please put your sections of computer output between CODE tags by using the # button from the bar above your message editor.

    That will make them readable as if they were on the termnal.

    Your partitioning is realy weird. The sequence on the disk is:

    Code:
    sda1, primary partition, for NTFS
    sda3, extended partition containing:
             sda5, logical partition, for Linux Swap
             sda6, logical partition, for Linux file system (probably /)
             sda7, logical partition, for Linnux file system (probably /home)
    sda2, primary partition, for NTFS
    In this case it seems to be rather easy (for the knowing) to add sda2 to sda7, because they are contiguous.
    sda1 is not contiguous and and thus not simply be added to sda6 or sda7. A major reorganisation is needed.
