I just joined this mailing list, and my understanding is that all
messages related to parted are welcome - not just discussion of

I have read the parted documentation relating to extending a
partition on a 'crowded' disk, and I think I understand the
process, but would like confirmation that I can do this with
my specific configuration.

As can be seen from the output from df, the '/' is almost full.
I would like to take about 1.5G from the end of '/home' and use
it to extend '/'.  The output from parted 'print' shows that
'/home' and '/' are contiguous, so as long as I follow the
procedure in the docs exactly, this should be posible, right?
