    How can I unmount Swap and Extended on the Ubuntu 5.10 Live Cd


    I am using GParted and the only way to resize the partitions is to turn off swap and turn off extended since ext3 is inside the extended and so is swap.The one I want to resize is ext3

    Here is more information

    All partitions become unmounted after doing the command to umount swap which would be swapoff /dev/hda5 it works but and I resize it and it does it but completes it but the partition is still not resized

    Status:Not Mounted
    Size:14747
    Used:7766
    Unused:6981
    Path:/dev/hda6

    Should I download the Ubuntu Beta Live cd and used that instead

    Both System Rescue Cd and GParted Live Cd fail after
    -ide-floppy driver 0.99.newide

    Resize function doesn't appear in QTParted on Knoppix or any other QTParted program on live cd

    Should I download Ubuntu Beta Live Cd since will have an upgraded version

    Have you tried to unmount it?

    Code:
    umount /dev/hdax
    substitute the correct number where I have x

    Or try the "swapoff" command.

    Use CODE tags when posting output of commands. Thank you.
