Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I am using GParted and the only way to resize the partitions is to turn off swap and turn off extended since ext3 is inside the extended and so is swap.The one I want to resize is ext3

Are you trying to resize your partition while it's mounted? O_o

Grab a live CD, and try using GParted (Knoppix has it)
cheetahman
Here is more information

All partitions become unmounted after doing the command to umount swap which would be swapoff /dev/hda5 it works but and I resize it and it does it but completes it but the partition is still not resized

Status:Not Mounted
Size:14747
Used:7766
Unused:6981
Path:/dev/hda6

Should I download the Ubuntu Beta Live cd and used that instead
cheetahman
Both System Rescue Cd and GParted Live Cd fail after
-ide-floppy driver 0.99.newide

Resize function doesn't appear in QTParted on Knoppix or any other QTParted program on live cd

Should I download Ubuntu Beta Live Cd since will have an upgraded version
