I need to shrink the partition on my laptop to create an additional partition of about 15 GB.
I know how to expand an existing partition if there is free unallocated space after it, but I'm not sure how to shrink my partitoin. My HD is as follows:
/dev/sda1 boot start: 1 end: 13 blocks: 104391 ID: 83 System: Linux
/dev/sda2 start: 14 end: 4864 blocks 38965657+ ID: 8e System Linux LVM
I thought I remembered setting it up with a swap partition but I guess not. Maybe that was my desktop.
sda2 is nowhere near full (28 GB free). I have a kanotix live CD with QT parted on it, but when I boot with it, it detects this, but resize is greyed out.
Anyway I can go about resizing this?
