I'm encountering a problem with my HDD's partitions and can't resize it. I've described my problem and my system here: GParted 0.3 encounters problem with file system and won't resize partition.
Now, from a more general perspective, I was thinking on whether it is possible to use an Ubuntu Live CD and use GParted in a live session to possibly go around that problem. Is that possible? I made a separate question as I'm interested in the possibility independently from my current problem.
You see, I only have one partition and that's mounted. When I use GParted through Ubuntu I don't get any error reports (unlike the case reported in the question linked above).
