Did not manage to resize an HFS+ partition on a powermac G5.
I am trying to install Debian on a powermac7,3 at work, but I did not
manage to resize the main HFS+ partition. Although I have a backup, I
would like to avoid reinstalling MacOS X. I saw on the web reports from
2005 in which an HFS+ partition was sucessfully resized with the
debian-installer, so I wonder what I did wrong.
I am using the netinst for Etch, in which parted is version 1.7.1. when
I try to resize with a command such as "resize 3 100GB 50GB", I got the
following error message:
Error: Unable to satisfy all constraints on the partition.
Here is what I know from the disk
gslc12|charles|$ diskutil info /
Device Node: /dev/disk0s3
Device Identifier: disk0s3
Mount Point: /
Volume Name: Macintosh HD
File System: HFS+
Partition Type: Apple_HFS
Bootable: Is bootable
Media Type: Generic
SMART Status: Verified
Total Size: 233.6 GB
Free Space: 198.2 GB

I disabled journaling with sudo diskutil disableJournal /
Any idea ? I am a bit frustrated of not being able to use the packages I made...
Have a nice day,
