reducing and increasing the partition

By harjit ·
I have installed the SuSE Linus ver 8.0. I want to reduce one of the partition and increase the partition without disturbing the data.
What is the utility?

Parted is a little bit difficult. And I think, you still need to down the service that do i/o to the data.

Try LVM with reiserfs. I'm not sure if SuSE support it. But you need to have setup your partition with LVM and reiserfs. If you setup it properly, you don't need to shutdown your service while reducing the partition. Pls backup everything first.

LVM with Ext3 can be used as well, but you still need to down the server.

Remember to backup everything first
