Here’s another successful operation done on fantastic Linux OS that is a pure dream for other operating systems.

Situation: I have a virtual machine with 20 GB HDD, partitioned as follows:

95% ext3 on primary partition

5% swap on first partition of extended partition

I certainly can expand my hard disk, by setting the new size in VMware configuration… so I brought it to 60 GB… but then I have a problem, since I cannot use tools like gparted to extend the main partition since the swap is in the middle between the two.

What to do? Well, again Google has been a best friend.

Well done, well written, clear and… working!
