http://forums.fedoraforum.org – In the process of preupgrading to FC12. Towards the end of the process I get a warning that my /boot partition isn't big enough (12 recommends minimum of 300Mb). My disks: [root@fatbeast boot]# df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/vg_fatbeast-lv_root 35G 6.6G 28G 20% / /dev/sda1 194M 176M 8.4M 96% /boot /dev/mapper/vg_fatbeast-LogVol02 29G 25G 3.2G 89% /home tmpfs 1.9G 676K 1.9G 1% /dev/shm /dev/sdb 7.5G 319M w7.2G 5% /media/CDF2-6BE2 [root@fatbeast boot]# Is there a tool I can use to resize my existing partitions WITHOUT data loss? I've been using gparted up to now for sorting partition stuff, does that maintain data when resizing (assuming I run from a boot CD or USB rather than a running system)? (HowTos)
