How to change /boot partition size without formatting?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 19, 2013
I made a terrible mistake and assigned only 200MB to /boot instead of 20GB... I need to resize without formatting, if possible... I think it's worth to mention that I've encrypted my HDD... on gparted there's a red warning sign and all options are blocked.

How to extend root partition on SuSE enterprise Server 11.1
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 17, 2012
I am in need of extending the / partition for one of my SuSE linux Enterprise Server 11.1 which is running on VMware. I will be able to extend the virtual lun from the vshphere console but can some one help me to find out whether it is possible to extend the root partition online without downtime? The server is an Oracle server and there is no separate application filesystems as all are under / mount. I look forward for your help and expertise in this issue. Please see current configurations pasted below.

dual boot: partition by default how many disk space?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 23, 2010
I wonder how much disk space a non manual dual boot uses?
I've always been guided by a person knowing much about linux when doing my dual boot (and been guided to do the partitions manualy), but this person is not there for the moment and I need to do a dual boot on my son's computer.
Since he'll need his Windows computer mainly for games I wouldn't want Ubuntu to take 2/3 of his disk space (which is about 250 Gb I think, let's say 50 Gb would be perfect for the Ubuntu)
And I'm not sure how I could change this later, cause in my own computer I cannot find how to resize (I cannot unmount neither resize the partitions I have) I don't mean I need to do this on my computer but I mean I wouldn't want to try out anything if I'm not sure it be could restored in 1,2,3.
And partitions is such a thing.
If I remember correctly I've done dual boot by default (i mean without doing the partitions manualy) and it does about 50/50 ?
thanks for your help

Boot Partition Full Which & How to Remove Old files
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 3, 2011
I'm sure this is simple.
The system is a DELL Notebook with a 160 GB HD running Ubuntu 10.04.3 LAMP server which is used to run a small phpBB bulletin board. There also is a much larger external (USB) HD that is used for backups.
I usually apply the standard updates / upgrades using apt-get.
The most recent dist upgrade generated a couple of error messages indicating that there was not sufficient disk space in the /boot partition.
In spite of the above, the system seems to be working properly.
I've checked the file space and found that /boot is, indeed, full.
The result of: "df -h" is:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
144G 8.3G 129G 7% /
none 479M 276K 478M 1% /dev
none 484M 0 484M 0% /dev/shm

Deleted linux partition, how to boot Windows partition?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 14, 2005
I have an Intel box on which I previously was running both Linux and Windows. The boot loader that is installed is GRUB. I deleted the Linux partition (accidentally), and now when I reboot the machine Windows does not boot like it used to (Windows was the default OS). Instead, the system comes up with a "grub > " prompt.
How do I boot windows directly from grub? Please help!
How'd you partition for linux multi boot and why?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 5, 2007
What would your partition plan be for lets say 3 different distro's?
I've got 2 extra partitions for experimenting and edutainment:
128 MB /boot for all kernels
10GB Ubuntu root
5GB extra distro
5GB extra distro
210GB /home Ubuntu only
The extra distro's will have their /home on the root partition.
In hindsight I'd probably have set it up differently but I'm not exactly sure how.
Slightly off topic but after reading the Slackbook I wonder:
- Why would you have a separate /usr/local partition?
- How can a separate /var partition enhance performance?
How to Mirror the Boot Partition on Existing Raid1
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 26, 2011
Hi, I have a raid1 setup on a machine. Recently it died and I thought one of the drives had failed as it was shooting errors. So I tried unplugging that drive get it to boot off the mirror but it seems the techs forgot to mirror the boot device so the 2nd drive can't boot on its own. After a while it was realized that the sata cable was in fact bad and replaced so now its working again.
However, this occurrence showed a flaw in the setup where the RAID1 isn't working as its supposed to. I would like to correct this. Can I somehow mirror the boot partition so the 2nd drive will boot independent? I'm not sure how I would go about this. This is a CentOS 5 installation. Thanks.
