    Gparted Error: Can't resize partition


    Hello everyone,

    I'm having some trouble with Gparted. I need to resize my boot partition in order to upgrade to Fedora 18, but I get the following error message & I don't know what to do to fix it! Any help would be appreciated.

    Modifying your current boot partition doesn't always work. Try running gparted from a LiveCD to avoid that possible problem.

    I wasn't sure if I'd have to, but I'll give it a shot and post if there are further issues. Thanks!
