well good news to all people!! it's now possible to resize your HFS+ partitions to rearrange your HD. all thanks to a GNU project called Parted. great stuff. so i want to resize my OS X boot partiton to make it bigger, that means i'll have to expand it into my other HFS+ partition. from what i've read, Parted can do this... but i just want to double, and maybe triple check that it will work before i actually try it. of course i'm going to backup, but i won't try if someone warns me about it. there's been a bit of discussion about it on the Gentoo forums: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=123556&highlight=resize+hfs. so what i'm think i'll do is use the 'resize' command to just shift around my OS X boot volume to make it bigger... can anyone tell me if this will work alright? surely there's someone here that has more experience with this than me? i've read the Parted manual as well. (or as much as time permits ). i would really appreciate if somone could just reassure me that this will actaully work. edit>> i just thought, it would be a good idea to install the latest Parted on my Gentoo system, since i'll only be working with my HFS+ partitions.
