This can really help with more advanced questions....Do we know if there is another Os on the machine?
But we know now that there exists a 19GB SWAP before the ROOT and HOME partitions - I think that's really enough to give advice to the op's question Wink
Do we know if one or more of the partitions is a logical, if so where is the extended, are they all primaries?
Do we know that the poster has the details he has given correct? I can happen that they get confused.
1. There's no other OS... all partitions are summed up on that spare PC
2. Don't know - doesn't matter at all for resizing
; for creating new
partitions, it does
matter, but that's already noticed and handled by Just18
3. Spare PC and installed PCLinuxOS... the op
didn't show any
doubt about the given information - of course it can always be wrong (happens to everyone sometimes); but I think we do know - and can be pretty sure - it's 19GB - and the question was if it can be resized or not; pretty clear in my opinion (even if it's e.g. 9 GB or 90GB) If Dreamofgilgamesh
wanted to be guided through adding partition etc.... we'd probably have asked the disk layout via "fdisk -l" (or another way: screenshot / ....)
=> and everyone can ask such information at that moment; that's why we're here together.Nobody
gives always the perfect advice (and my name isn't nobody....... yes, I know... stupid humour
) - and so we should help each other to support the people with questions / problems.
So, thanks for your advice, dvhenry
- and if you're still not sure that the op
won't have any problems following our suggestions.... then ask for the fdisk -l thing and maybe a bunch of other things;
=> I'm not stopping you, and it's even better when all people are satisfied with the advice and can trust it; and each one can jump in a thread and try to give extra advice
I think that the question of Dreamofgilgamesh is answered... and if the op isn't satisfied with it / or have more doubts / questions, it's possible they will be asked - and with all other forum members, we try to answer them in the best possible way
