Partition Magic and Parted, permit move and resize of a partition. But in my case, nothing works.
I have / (root) in a primary partition, and swap+/home included in a extended partition (and so logical partitions as well freespace). I tried various 'movement', but not works. Not works just a 'simple' resizing of /home partition to include remain freespace too.
Have you any idea?
