Hi

My old partition table looked like this:

print
Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-11513.250 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031     62.753  primary   ext3        boot
2         62.754    188.261  primary   linux-swap
3        188.262   1686.511  primary   ext3
4       1686.511  11507.497  extended
5       1686.542   3184.760  logical   ext3
6       3184.792   4180.979  logical   ext3
7       4181.010   4683.010  logical   ext3
8       4683.041   5185.041  logical   ext3
9       5185.072   5687.072  logical   ext3
10      5687.104   6087.128  logical   ext3
11      6087.160   6487.185  logical   ext3
12      6487.216   6785.266  logical   ext3
13      6785.297   8291.359  logical   ext3


1. I want to
        a) expand partition 3 to at least 4GB
and therefore to move the extended partition
including all the other partitions towards the end
of the disk.

(parted) resize 4 1686.511 11513.250    - worked

next I쨈m trying to simply move partition 5 to the end
of the extended partition to create space in front:

(parted) move 5 8291.360
End?


Hmm. Why does parted ask me for an end here? The manual
says that specifying no end will keep the partition size
(which is what I want).
Simply pressing return does nothing, it asks again.
There should be sufficient space, I calculate the
end to be about 9789.578.

2. After moving partition 5, can I simply resize the
extended partition 4 using

(parted) resize 4 1686.542 11513.250

and will that keep all the partitions inside it
correctly set up?

3. Finally, I will delete partition 3 and recreate it
to take up all the space up to just before partition 4
(no need resizing, it will get a diff filesystem anyway),
and create a partition 14 at the end too. Those seem simple.

Any comments on this?

thanks
