Partition issues.

Sun Oct 06, 2013 2:35 pm

Hi I'm using Arch and I want to install gnome. I can get everything working up until the gnome install. It tells me I don't have enough room on the sd. I know that it is not using up my full sd card. I want to know how I can get arch to use the full card.

My only resources are a windows PC and my raspi running arch.

Is there any to install it? I have an 8gb sd card. It is only using 2gb.

The first link above talks about expanding partitions.

There is no reason not to install Gnome, but the resposiveness would not be good.
