Resizing ext4 partition and applying it to an NTFS partition in Ubuntu 12.04.1?view story

http://askubuntu.com – I made a miscalculation on my Ubuntu install and now need more space for my Windows (NTFS) partition (sda2). The problem is that I allocated ~ 100GiB to what I thought would be a shared media storage directory; this was placed in an extended partition (sda4), comprised of ~ 7GiB in a swap file (sda5) and ~ 100GiB in an ext4 storage partition (sda6), respectively.

What does "link to unknown" mean?view story

http://serverfault.com – I just upgraded my server to Fedora 17 which made a switch of my bootloader from GRUB Legacy to GRUB2. There are two symbolic links in the /etc folder that points to the files grub.conf and grub.cfg in /boot/grub and /boot/grub2 respectively. Though the targets seem correct, the link icons are displaying an X status which seems to indicate that the links are broken. (HowTos)
