Resize partitions with gparted

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – Hey I'm trying to resize my boot partition and eventually my lvm partition. I currently have: /dev/sda1 ext2 243M /dev/sda2 extended 7.76G unallocated 17G Ideally I'd like: /dev/sda1 ext2 7.2G /dev/sda2 extended 17.76G My main problem is my / that is too small and I can't install anything anymore. I tried to resize /dev/sda1 but the max size is the current one. As I understand it, I need to move the unallocated space next to /dev/sda1 but Gparted doesn't let me. Any ideas ? Thanks! (HowTos)
