I had a triple boot windows 7, Ubuntu 10.10 and Ubuntu 11.10. I deleted the partition that the 11.10 was in and now I have free space on my ext4 partition. I want to use that space which is located in my ext4 partition for my sda/5 mounted at / for my linux 10.10. But the problem is that the free space isn't next to sda/5, its next to sda/7 which is my grub boot memory. Is there a way to fix this I'm not sure if I can create a new partition for my home directory which would work I guess if that's possible. I worried because I don't want to mess anything up. Also should I use software like gparted to change partitions?
The free space can found effectively as home directory, this can do it editing the
fstab file, which found into
So you should open the
fstab file (as superuser, of course) and add the follow line to end of file:
/dev/sdaX /home ext4 nodev,nosuid 0 2
Of course you have to rempace the X with the correct number of your future home partition.
Once this is done, just reboot your computer. :)
