Hi,
I have Knoppix 5.0 on a ReiserFS partition (and a Swap partition) on ny HD. Now I want to install GeeXboX on this HD. But it doesn't seem to be possible to resize this partition in order to get free space for the third GeeXbox partition. Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance!

I just found a small LiveCD for partition-editing http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php (about 30MB).
It claims to be able to resize ReiserFS, among other things, and has nice and easy-to-use GUI.

I havn't actually tested it yet, so use at your own risk. But at least it seems to be quite nice.

Ol├Ąg, 30 MB and a 56k Modem, that will take a little while. But I'll try it. Thanks! I'll post a report if it succeeded or not.
