I am looking for a way to clone and resize a Fedora 12 x86_64 system to
a new hard drive which provides a lot more capacity. The system I wish
to clone is encrypted with luks. I basically need to move the whole
system to a larger drive, then resize the partitions larger. These are
ext4 partitions. Here is what my grub.conf kernel line says:
kernel /vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-174.fc12.x86_64 ro
SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us
Is there a procedure available for doing this?
What if I just cloned the existing drive to the new drive using RIPLinux
and ddrescue, then attempted to resize the clone's partitions? I'm fuzzy
about how to do this. Or perhaps use a Fedora Live DVD and ddrescue?
