I have installed 14.04 LTS on a 512GB disk. I am cloning it to a 1TB disk and would like to extend the root (/) partition. Currently the /dev/sda5 partition has both the root (/) and the swap mount points (this is how the install CD configured the disk).
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 477G 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 0 243M 0 part /boot ├─sda2 8:2 0 1K 0 part └─sda5 8:5 0 476.7G 0 part ├─datanode--vg-root (dm-0) 252:0 0 220.8G 0 lvm / └─datanode--vg-swap_1 (dm-1) 252:1 0 241G 0 lvm [SWAP]
I am able to use Gparted to extend the /dev/sda5 partition to use the whole disk but because both the root and swap are mounted to the same partition I have not been able to extend the root (/).
I am new to Linux and am in need of some help.
