updated partion unrecognized
Hello all, I recently installed suse on a 20gb partition separate from /home and realized it was too small, so I resized it to 50gb but the system hasn't noticed the change. I resized through the live CD with yast partioner. Is there any way to update the system readings, like a command or something simmilar?
Thanks in advance.

You can increase the size of a partition that a file system lives on, but you have to tell the file system that it is bigger. IE, if it is an ext2, ext3, or ext4 file system on say /dev/sdb2, then do this as root: resize2fs /dev/sdb2. That will increase the file system size to the new partition size.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
