I installed OES 2 SP 3 on SUSE 10 SP4. After installation I tried to extend max size of Linux system partition sda2. Max size is 14.9 GB and I have a few hundreds GB unpartitioned space on sda. I'd like to expand sda2 up to 100GB. I tried to use LVM and EVMS tools, neither one worked for me. So, my question is can I expend sda2 during or after installation SUSE.
I posted the same question on Novell's website.

Thank you,

Vlad.

Hi
As long as the gap between sda2 and sdaN is free you should be able to
do it via YaST partitioner? Perhaps if you post the output from the
command;


fdisk -l /dev/sda

By far better to set your partitons during install, however for
OES/SLES your far better to wait for a reply there...
