I have never used Linux.

However: I know that there are certain "partition manager" utilities available in MS Windows environment, so I suppose there might be something similar for Linux too.

Here's what I did the other day: I have a Virtual Box whose (virtual) hard disk size became too small, so I had to resize it. In order to do that, I used CloneVDI utility which enlarged the disk, but partition was still the same (small) size. So I Googled for "free partition manager" (true, there are commercial versions which can, most probably, do many fancy things, but all I needed was to enlarge the partition and guessed that "free" versions would do the job). One of these worked just fine.

Now: I Googled for "linux free partition manager" and this page seems to be offering quite a few utilities. So - perhaps you could check what they do and how.

Once again: I can not recommend any of these as I don't use Linux, but - while searching for my Virtual Box problems - someone recommended "GParted" utility. That's, more or less, all I can say about the issue.

This question bears no real connection with Oracle.

Well, *my* problem was in relation to Oracle. New computer came with Windows 7. Developer Suite 10g (9.0.4) won't work on Windows 7, so I had to install Virtual Box with XP on it in order to use these Oracle tools. "Partition resizing" problem isn't "Oracle" problem if we look very narrow at it, but - at the end - they are very related (I can't use Oracle if I can't resize partition).
