Thanks illness… a good link! Yes, I have used fdisk w/ other BBB distros (Wheezy, etc.) to resize this way.
Here’s another good link that discusses this, that I’ve used:
But I don’t know whether this would work w/ the Volumio distro… has anyone tried it had success?
I was going to try it, and so I shutdown my BBB running Volumio to make an image backup of my sd and try expanding the fs on the copy.
That is when I found out that shutting down my BBB did mysterious things to my volumio install: it wiped out any record of my nfs mounts,
my mpd song db, ethernet connection info, in short, all the web setup. so I got worried. I’ll give it a try perhaps later, on a duplicate sd image.
My verdict so far (after having tried 3 or 4 other such players/music db combos like this) is that volumio is terrific with playing music and handling
diverse usb dacs (all the others have failed in one way or another), BUT I don’t understand what it’s doing w/ filesystems, and unless I can get
it to behave reliably and boot up to the same state it was left in when shutdown-- the minimum standard for computation, IMHO, then I will be at a loss.
