Re: NTFS resizing during installation ...



Philip, 

Thanks for saying "of course" :)

Actually, I use ntfsresize and other tools from the package
ntfsprogs-1.7.1-1. It allows me to resize the NTFS partitions without
any problem ...

I will use chvt then, and run the script in the %pre section.

Thanks for the pointer.
Marc
