Re: [Fedora] Re: Resizing partitions

You can attempt to combine the partitions with GPARTED live CD, back up

the /etc/fstab file to add the partition as the usr directory. You could
also use the extra partition as /home or both.
Nah, /home is on a separate disk all together. And while putting /usr on the empty partition is, at the moment, probably the best I can do, it does seem a waste of 3.6GiB considering /usr only about 919MiB in size. This machine does not have X on it, and /usr/local/src is, again, on a different drive. So, /usr growing anymore is not very likely.

I'm not to worried about having to re-do the whole machine, I just prefer not to. So I may try (g)parted and see how that goes. If it works, great, if it doesn't, I'll just have to rebuild the machine.

   Thanks for the suggestion.
