    Hi,
    I have got a partion on my hard disk /var but i would like to resize it, i tryed to chnage its size in yast but it wont let me it says the disk is already mounted. So i goto shell and unmount:

    Code:
    server1:~ # umount /var
    umount: /var: device is busy
    umount: /var: device is busy
    server1:~ #
    Though it doesnt let me becuase the "drive is busy" . Do you know any live cd's i could use to change the partition size?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Have you tried booting to single user mode, I dont think It is mounted, in that case you can resize it from there, without using a live CD.
