Fedora 17, 64bit
Ubuntu 12.04 desktop 64bit
Ubuntu 12.04 has been installed on the HD first, several days ago, taking up the whole disc without partitioning. Later I added/installed Fedora 17 selecting the "Shrink" option with LVM partitioning and saved the bootloader on /dev/sda1 to make them dualboot. Installation was successful with dualboot option. Unfortunately by mistake I retained insufficient space for Ubuntu 12.04, only about 100M left when it is up.
Fedora 17 is on LVM partition but NOT Ubuntu 12.04
Then I took following steps to shrink /home of Fedora 17
# vgchange -a y
# resize2fs -f /dev/mapper/vg_fedora17-lv_home
# e2fsck -f /dev/mapper/vg_fedora17-lv_home
e2fsck 1.42 (29-Nov-2011)
Please help. TIA
You can boot into the Gparted Live CD and resize your partitions: http://www.howtoforge.com/partitioning_with_gparted
Another, more diffcult solution is described in http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_resi...xt3_partitions
I tried Gparted before. Unfortunately LVM is NOT supported. Therefore I have to run those steps as posted on my original posting to shrink /dev/mapper/vg_fedora17-lv_home form 78G to 10G. Now about 68G free space is available. Unfortunately Gparted couldn't find the free space.
