gparted partitioning install howto

There are times you need to resize and extend a particular partition to give way to another set of installation programs or data download storage allocation. What about you've mistakenly designated a wrong partition size for particular partition?

Put your partition worries away.

Here comes linux partitioner GParted.

GParted install howto.

# yum -y install gparted

GParted stands for Gnome Partition Editor and is a graphical frontend to libparted. Among other features it supports creating, resizing, moving and copying of partitions. Also several (optional) filesystem tools provide support for filesystems not included in libparted. These optional packages will be detected at runtime and don't require a rebuild of GParted.

On thing I like with GParted is doing it live and online with your partition data using X.


Ctrl+F2, gparted, enter.
