Hello Guys,

I was wondering if anyone can guide as to how to increase the size of the / partition.

this is the output of my df -h
Code: [Select]

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1              19G   12G  6.3G  66% /
tmpfs                1002M   11M  992M   1% /dev/shm


This is the output of my fdisk -l

Code: [Select]

Hello,

As / is not mounted as lvm partition it is not easy to increase or extend the size. If it was LVM partition it was easy. You can check the link below.
