    Well you can't at least not without resizing and moving other partitions. You could reduce the size of the Windows partition (sda2) then move sda3 up then resize sda3 then resize the file system on sda3.

    Note the above operations are inherently dangerous and you should do a full backup before attempting them. Any mistake or problem could result in data loss. .

    IMO you should first see what is taking up all the extra space on the root partition and fix that. It is a lot safer then moving partitions around.

    Note there is a possible way if you have a spare drive. you could simply create a partition there and mount it as /tmp This maybe a temp fix and you can set things back. But as I said it really does not address the problem of why you don't have enough free space on root.

    This will install bumblebee and also a special version of the NVIDIA driver. this should correct your problems.

    I have tried to follow the instructions:


    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.1/


    But this is the output:

    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_13.1/
    If only one argument is used, it must be a URI pointing to a .repo file.
    addrepo (ar) [options] <URI> <alias>
    addrepo (ar) [options] <file.repo>

    Add a repository to the system. The repository can be specified by its URI or can be read from specified .repo file (even remote).

    Command options:
    -r, --repo <file.repo> Just another means to specify a .repo file to read.
    -t, --type <type> Type of repository (yast2, rpm-md, plaindir).
    -d, --disable Add the repository as disabled.
    -c, --check Probe URI.
    -C, --no-check Don't probe URI, probe later during refresh.
    -n, --name <name> Specify descriptive name for the repository.
    -k, --keep-packages Enable RPM files caching.
    -K, --no-keep-packages Disable RPM files caching.
    -g, --gpgcheck Enable GPG check for this repository.
    -G, --no-gpgcheck Disable GPG check for this repository.
    -f, --refresh Enable autorefresh of the repository.


    How can I fix it ?

    I have enlarged /root partition and the extraction works, but the following problem still remains:

    My trouble is with FreeCAD if I launch it, my machine gives this output:

    studio@linux:/opt/FreeCAD/bin> ls
    FreeCAD FreeCADCmd
    studio@linux:/opt/FreeCAD/bin> FreeCAD

    Please read the instructions and follow EXACTLY

    I suspect you missed a space somewhere

    Your first attempt to install the nvidia driver replaced some files needed by the Intel card, reinstall the package xorg-x11-server and it should work again.

    You are right:

    it missed bumblebee at the end of the URL.

    Then I have followed exactly the instruction, but after having installed nvidia-bumblebee and nvidia-bumblebee-32bit, after rebooting the system, the GPU crashed and I have to reinstall the NVIDIA driver manually from terminal.

    I have checked bumblebee opening a terminal and typing:

    studio@linux:~> optirun --status
    [ 312.116694] [ERROR]You've no permission to communicate with the Bumblebee daemon. Try adding yourself to the 'bumblebee' group
    [ 312.116727] [ERROR]Could not connect to bumblebee daemon - is it running?


    So bumblebee is not running.

    How can I fix it ?

    You must NOT have the regular driver installed it will NOT work with your system unless you turn off the Intel GPU. Some BIOS can do it some can't.

    If you install bumblebee you must have no trace of the normal NVIDIA driver in the system it will mess up the Intel. Only use the bumblebee version of the NVIDIA driver

    Completely uninstall all NVIDIA packages. There are 5 normally installed.

    You can log into a terminal as root and run yast to remove the NVIDIA drivers.

    How can I see the NVIDIA drivers installed and remove them ?
