Thread: extend / restructure partition

  1. extend / restructure partition

    HI,

    I am new to Debian.
    I recently installed a Debian on a Sun Netra T1 Sparc machine, and
    found that I only use 5GB space of its 18GB maximum hard disk size.

    Here is the current file partition in the debian system:
    dev:~# df -k
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda1 5106408 538644 4308372 12% /
    tmpfs 257480 0 257480 0% /lib/init/rw
    udev 10240 72 10168 1% /dev
    tmpfs 257480 0 257480 0% /dev/shm
    dev:~#
    dev:~# uname -a
    Linux dev 2.6.18-6-sparc64 #1 Tue Feb 12 21:51:30 UTC 2008 sparc64 GNU/
    Linux
    dev:~#

    Qeust 1 is:
    In Debian, how to find out the extra available space that I can use?

    Quest 2:
    What can I do to make use the rest of 13GB or 12GB disk space from the
    same harddisk?

    Thanks
    Sam

    Use fdisk or cfdisk to partition the disk.

    gparted is a nice 'gui' partitioning tool.
