[SOLVED] no free space after resizing
I also tried shrinking and moving Ubuntu further to the right, which I know is risky. In the end I decided to delete Ubuntu as I have the files elsewhere and work out of Debian only now.
There were errors when I did this and, upon rebooting, grub couldn't find anything at all, so I had to reinstall that by chrooting into debian from liveUSB. I eventually got that to work and now what is wrong is that the Debian partition looks huge in the gparted editor but when I boot into it, there is no extra space at all.
I think the problem is that when I ran gparted, I deleted ubuntu and then expanded the Debian partition without reformatting the space into ext3. Now gparted sees a huge Debian partition and I can't shrink it because gparted thinks that there is only 1 gig of free space while there should be like 100 Gb.
Is there anyway to fix this?
Ok, I just had to "check" the partition in gparted and it figured itself out and sees how much free space I have...

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
I don't suppose you ever removed that swap device from the various systems' /etc/fstab, and do a swapoff when such systems were running?
