resize mounted partion ext4 inside opensuse?

hi guys,

i’ve 2 partions ext4 mounted to / and /home. but now i wanna resize them. so i wonder can i resize them when i’m running opensuse, without any changes and damages? (use partioning in yast) or i’ve to use livecd to do this?

thanks!

I’d use a liveCD to do this. What’s the output of


fdisk -l
