We’re experimenting with a fedora box, building a new configuration. We put a new drive into a box and rebooted it; given that it booted up as expected and I forgot about LABEL=/ in fstab, I went ahead and fdisk’d the old drive which had a 16Gb partition plus swap. I removed both partitions and created a single partition which turned out to be 72.6Gb. The drive is actually that big but it had been hamstrung with a 16Gb partition as a result of a standardized install.
So, uhm, how do I stabilize that? I’d like to avoid reinstalling, but I figure it can’t be good just resizing a partition under ext3?
