or: how to move/resize partitions that got created from FC5?
I run out of space on /. http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/...d.php?t=109588
So I booted windows, run Partitionmagic to move some stuff around and gain space on the FC5 partition. But PM refuses to do anything with those ext3 partitions?!
Error #510 The version of the file system is not supported
Ok, doin some googeling, came up with http://www.redhat.com/archives/rhl-l.../msg03417.html
Booted rescue CD, changed all affected partitions with tune2fs -O^dir_index.
Back to windows and PM: partitions still not supported!
more googeling reveals http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...t2-revert.html
Ok, no dataloss involved so let's just convert all partitions to ext2.
Booted rescue CD, converted partitions.
Back to windows/PM: ok, now I see ext2 partitions listed. But still I cannot do anything with them!
Desperately I even tried to use parted. And even this gives me a message about unsupported partition type!
So - what has Fedora Core 5 done to my harddrive partitions?
Sorry but I'm a little annoyed right now. I had Gentoo and Ubuntu running on those same partitions before. And although they all had their little issues no other linux distri has caused this kind of trouble
Any hints on how to proceed ?
