    Partition problem.

    Hello everybody!
    I have full partition table and i need one free entry. My partition table looks like:

    dev/sda1 (FAT32) - HP_TOOLS
    dev/sda2 (SWAP)
    dev/sda3 (EXT3) -   /
    dev/sda4 (EXT3) -   /home
    I want to merge sda3 and sda4 to one partition and make sda4 as free space.
    Anyone know how to do that?

    suggest you post the output of sudo fdisk -l we can then see partition layout ... I usually do partition changes using the partedmagic live CD you can also use it to copy the /home partition information to /home folder on the root partition ... cp -a or rsync will do the job

    Yes, like Jonathan183 said, the easiest thing to do is probably just move /home to / (no real "merging" is required). But make sure you have enough free space! Show the output of these commands, if you want help:

    du -sm /home
