thank you for the reply, actually I've heard about this solution, and tried to use
resize2fs to expand my filesystem (ext3), the problem is I didn't know how to use
it, what does the "new size" parameter mean? the additional size or the new complete
size?* and the device must be a partition rather than the whole disk, otherwise,
it complains "Bad magic number in super-block", and for a partition, it complains size
not match or too large. any ideas?
