I have a Powerbook G3 Pismo, which dual-boots Mac OS9 and Debian. I inherited this laptop in this state, which is fine with me.

I run Linux 99.9% of the time, but the drive is partitioned with 5GB for Linux and almost 6GB for Mac OS. I would like to resize the drive and give the additional 4GB to Linux. What have others done to resize their drives?

There should be support for hfs+ resizing in parted or any libparted using
tool. The same tool should be able ro resize ext2 or something such, altough
you could simply add an additional partition if needed.

Talking about HFS+ partitions, I have one which rarely mounts as read-write, usually is is read-only file-system because there is apparently someting wrong with the partition. It suggests running fsck, but that results in this:

# fsck /dev/hda14
fsck 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
fsck: fsck.hfsplus: not found
fsck: Error 2 while executing fsck.hfsplus for /dev/hda14

This there a way to do a fsck (perhaps in OSX)? for PPC partitions?
