Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the options for resizing
partitions without losing data is pretty limited. I recently went
through a round of resizing, and while I could move swap into adjacent
unused space, I could only alter the end of a data partition. i.e., I
could make an existing partition bigger or smaller, but I could not
So, unless I'm missing something, you can only make swap bigger if it
occurs after a data partition. Had I understood this all when I
installed I'd have made sure to put swap at the very end of the drive,
instead of in the middle of a virtual partition...
