    Re: Best way to increase Fedora partitions ~ / ?

    You have to revise the /etc/fstab of the new system, or it is going to not make changes
    When you create or modify partitions, the UUID most often changes

    run sudo blkid /dev/sda* if the new partition is /dev/sda
    Look at the output of the blkid program for the partition lists and compare the UUID values with the /etc/fstab You need to paste over the UUID value with the new UUID

    Even though you used rsync, also compare the format type. an ext4 system should remain ext4 on the new partitions.

    Yes, I've restarted system.

    I've checked all and it looks correct, it's same file system ext4.

    sudo blkid /sdv/sda*
    do you mean sudo blkid /dev/sda* ?

    Yes, There was a typo I wrote /dev/sd... but the dev got garbled on the way to the forum. I usually proof read my posts, so blame me for the typo.

    Parted gives ya'all complete control of cylinder start stop etc. Here's a manual :

    2.3 Command Line Options

    When invoked from the command line, Parted supports the following syntax:

    # parted [option] device [command [argument]]

    Available options and commands follow.[in above linked parted manual]
    For detailed explanations of the use of Parted commands, see Command explanations. Options begin with a hyphen, commands do not:

    KDE Partition Manager is also a decent option if using that particular desktop environment. It has the option to align sectors, declare start and end points etc. too.

    There is no reason for blaming anyone, I'm grateful for any help or attempt.

    Thank you, resizing partition using gparted or other tools would require big amount of time. I'm trying to avoid it because the more time it take, the more risk of troubles, loss of data etc.

    gparted is the most easy to use, easier than parted. gparted is visual. You see what you are going to do before you do the commit.

    I like gparted but it get frozen recently on another machine and I've lost some files so I would like to avoid it in this case and not move big amount of data using gparted.

    There was mistype in rsync command.

    Correct command is:
    Code:
    sudo rsync -ar --progress /home/*  /path/to/your/new/mounted/home/partition

    So I can use new home folder now.
