You will have to resize the filesystem as well.
i) shrink the fs
ii) grow the fs
Thank you Joe, but you info did not work.
All i can get is a non-booting system as a result of trying to resize
The article in LINUXPRO May 2003 page 15 implies that /home /var /usr and /
can be resized. Is this just wishful thinking?
My system replies to such resizing attempts by saying I need to unmount the
FAT chance of that. Anyone tried to umnount / recently?
Once again any info will be tried and greatfully received.
