I installed ubuntu studio a few weeks back on a small 32 gig sata ssd. It has been a good distro so far, I’ve ran gnome and kde desktops before so xfce is a little different. I was trying to download a 500 meg file and it kept failing. I did a df -h and now I see why. How do I shrink the tmpfs partitions and expand the sda1 partition. Below is my df output.
noneyer:~$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 5.9G 0 5.9G 0% /dev tmpfs 1.2G 1.6M 1.2G 1% /run /dev/mapper/vgubuntu--studio-root 26G 25G 454M 99% / tmpfs 5.9G 109M 5.8G 2% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 4.0K 5.0M 1% /run/lock tmpfs 5.9G 0 5.9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup /dev/sda1 704M 193M 461M 30% /boot tmpfs 1.2G 20K 1.2G 1% /run/user/1000
I’ve tried the gnome-disk-utility but I can’t expand sda1 and the other partitions don’t show up. I don’t remember the partition setting I selected during install.
Thanks for any help.
Edit: after more reflection, I see it is using LVM, which I don’t quite understand. It seems to need a magical incantation of expand or resize of something. Oh great Linux wizards please teach me thy tongue or point me to some good documentation.
