    hi, i want to resize my mac partition, i have hfs journaled file system
    i enter command sudo diskutil resizeVolume disk0s2 40G
    but...it says:

    Resizing encountered error The chosen size is not valid for the chosen filesystem (-9962) on disk disk0s2 macos

    where do i see what size is correct, also i find it weird, when i partitioned from disk utility during installation i entered an arbitrary size..also i have another partition, formatted in reiser where i have suse installed, do i have to leave this as free space?

    if your using Leopard Disk Utility allows no destructive partitioning.
