    Repartitioning existing linux installation

    Hi all, how can I repartitionize an existing linux installation?

    My disk is now like:
    sda1;/boot;45.4 Mb (72.5% used)
    sdb1; /usr; 20.4 Gb (26.9% used)
    sdb3;/home;10.4 Gb (5.5% used)
    sdb5;/;370.7 Mb (97.8 % used) !!!!
    sdb6;/var; 249.7 Mb (83.9 % used) !!!!

    A guy maded this configuration two years ago. Now I should repartitionize the Pc without formatting (many configurations)

    Thank you for any suggestion

    There are a few threads on this already for different Linux versions. If you do a search for "repartioning"or something similar you should find some that may work for your distro.

    Apparemtly this has been discussed before. However, I'd be glad to tell you that I personally use the combination of GNU Parted to resize and move disk partitions and GNU GRUB to handle booting many different system images. I have a dozen different disk partitions and usually at least 8-9 OS set up to run on my system at any given time.
