Full Version: Not enough disk space
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I am trying to compile my kernel and get the error message there is not enough disk space.
The partition where the Linux kernel resides has only half a Gig free. However The home partition has 8Gig free.
Is it possible to repartition the hard disk to give the kernel partition another Gig from the home partition without destroying anything
Thanks

It depends how your disk is partitioned.
What distribution / version are you running?

Well I have Windows XP on the first partition and windows data on the second partition.
Linux is installed on the third and forth partition, see below
The version I use is linux-3.10.9

You need to boot using a gparted live CD and basically shrink home, move it to the right, then expand your / partition. Be sure to back up any an all important data files just in case.
