Ok, so I'm kind of new to linux, but I know computers very well so I can take commands.
My problem is when I tried to expand my extended partition that houses my ubuntu partition I get an error saying "Unable to satisfy all constrains on the partition"
It is important that I get the problem fixed ASAP. I don't know what exactly you need to know to fix my problem, but here are a few things and don't be afraid to ask for more of what you need.
Tried to partition with GParted in an Ubuntu Live USB (Ubuntu Live 13.04 x64).
My partition map looks like this:
Partition: Size: /dev/sda1 | TOSHIBA System Volume | 1.46 GiB /dev/sda2 | Windows 7 | 104.08 GiB unallocated | The space I want to add | 99.21 GiB ᐁ /dev/sda3 | The extended partition | 81.06 GiB /dev/sda5 | My ubuntu partition | 81.06 GiB unallocated | extra space added in ubuntu installation | 2.00 MiB /dev/sda4 | HDDRECOVERY | 12.27 GiB
sudo fdisk -l

THE ERROR I AM GETTING IN GPARTED
GParted 0.12.1 --enable-libparted-dmraid Libparted 2.3 Move /dev/sda3 to the left and grow it from 81.06 GiB to 82.20 GiB 00:00:02 ( ERROR ) calibrate /dev/sda3 00:00:02 ( SUCCESS ) path: /dev/sda3 start: 429,400,062 end: 599,398,399 size: 169,998,338 (81.06 GiB) move partition to the left and grow it from 81.06 GiB to 82.20 GiB 00:00:00 ( ERROR ) old start: 429,400,062 old end: 599,398,399 old size: 169,998,338 (81.06 GiB) requested start: 427,008,000 requested end: 599,396,351 requested size: 172,388,352 (82.20 GiB) libparted messages ( INFO ) Unable to satisfy all constraints on the partition.
Again if there is any other info you need just ask, it is important that I can fix the problem. I am working on making my own Linux distro to learn more about Linux, and who doesn't want their own OS? I mean come on. I will try with the windows partition manager but I expect no better.
