    partition anihilation


    I installed a dualbot but accidentally partition size was set to 2.5 GB, and that is obviously too small
    So I installed ubuntu again with 60GB, but now I hawe two partitions of ubuntu and I don't need the fist one or any data on it.
    So can I just click delete "ext3" and "linux-swap" or what?
    I would like to add that 2.5GB to the 60GB of the other partition...

    I attached a screen shot of GParted

    Your help would be appreciated

    You can use GParted to merge the 2.5 GB partition into your 60 GB partition but you can't do that in GParted if the partitions are currently mounted, which is the case if you are running Ubuntu. My suggestion is to boot your computer with the GParted Live CD, which will not mount the partitions, and you'll be allowed to work with them as needed.
