|well, i posted this on the end of another thread, but i guess it needs it's own thread, so here i go: :p
i've been thinking about resizing my OS X boot Volume and from what i've read i think Parted is my best (only?) option.
i've got my OS X boot volume, my Gentoo partitons and a couple of other HFS+ partitions. i just wanted to ask: will Parted let me resize the OS X boot volume (make it bigger) and then let me join my two other HFS+ partitons together?
i thought this would be the best place to ask. i'd try it out myself, but i'm a n00b, so perhaps there is someone here who could save me alot of deep breaths. :p
also, is it possible to take space from a HFS+ partiton and join it to a Ext3 partiton?
i've been reading the user manual, it mentions 'growing' a partiton, so i guess that means i can do what i want? well i just want you guys to double check on this for me.
hda5-7 are my HFS+ partitions. so if i want to get hda5 (Panther boot volume) bigger, i'd do something like:
|(parted) resize 5 start end |
is that correct? and i'm guessing it'll be best to do this from my Gentoo system, because i'll only be modifying my HFS+ partitions.
thanks for checking this for me, i really need the reassurance. :p
