Topic: [closed] Batch or scripting mode
I have a large number of installed systems where I need to play partition games via an automated script - more specifically move and ext3 partition "to the right" where its new start location falls within the original partition. Since this feature is handled very nicely in the gparted gui - could there be a possible command line argument to allow a move of this type? I know many things are easily done with parted in a script but there seems to be some "magic" behind the move functionality of this type in gparted.
If someone could spell out the steps using parted and e2fsprogs to move an ext3 partition to the right where the new start location would end up inside the original partition - then I could try and use those commands to craft my solution. General steps are great and I can work out the specifics.
The power of gparted could be even greater with a command line version - maybe call it cparted for the die hard command line folks
Thanks for any feedback.
