After writing the image to the 8G microSD-card, initial setup of network and installation of git (with apt-get) I could not install anything else since I was out of diskspace. This confused me. But
df -h shows me that
/dev/mmcblk0 has a size of just under 1G.
/dev/mmcblk0p1 has a size of 40M.
So I got a card with roughly 7G unused and unaccessible. How do I get hold of it?
When I insert the card in my laptop (Ubuntu) it does no longer automount itself and when I try to get some info about it I get this with
$ sudo parted -l /dev/mmcblk0p1 Model: ATA HTS721080G9SA00 (scsi) Disk /dev/sda: 80.0GB Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B Partition Table: msdos Number Start End Size Type File system Flags 1 1049kB 76.8GB 76.8GB primary ext4 boot 2 76.8GB 80.0GB 3219MB extended 5 76.8GB 80.0GB 3219MB logical linux-swap(v1) Error: /dev/mmcblk0: unrecognised disk label $ sudo lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 74.5G 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 0 71.5G 0 part / ├─sda2 8:2 0 1K 0 part └─sda5 8:5 0 3G 0 part [SWAP] sr0 11:0 1 1024M 0 rom mmcblk0 179:0 0 7.4G 0 disk └─mmcblk0p1 179:1 0 7.4G 0 part
What can I do:
- Could I resize the disk in the current installation?
- Could I do a new installation an during the installation procedure set the size of the final result?
- Could I create new partitions in the unpartitioned area and move the OS to that partition?
