Topic: Cannot make partition larger.

I'm trying to do the same thing this person has done.


But I get this error all the time.



Re: Cannot make partition larger.

Can you give more precise information on the problem?
The referenced video concerns expanding a virtual server using an older (0.25) GParted version.

Gparted version used ?
from the GParted Live cd - version? or from any other live cd  or installed on the computer ?
Details and screenshot from your partition setup
GParted detail report.
What exactly you did.
Using the English screen version of the live cd would be helpful too.

*** It is highly recommended to backup any important files before doing resize/move operations. ***


Re: Cannot make partition larger.

The English translation of the error dialog is:

Could not add this operation to the list

GParted Bug: A partition cannot end (1758214144) after the end of the device (%2)

This error message is new in GParted 1.1.0, introduced by commit Replace partition boundary trimming with bug error messages (#48)
Including not filling out the second parameter so getting (%2) reported.


Re: Cannot make partition larger.


Please run the following commands to report your disk layout:
(If necessary change /dev/sda to the name of the disk being modified in the following commands)

sudo parted /dev/sda unit s print
sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda
sudo gdisk -l /dev/sda
sudo lsblk -o name,maj:min,rm,size,ro,type,fstype,label,mountpoint

What action were you trying to compose when the above error occurred?
