Since I am using a 16G micro SD card, I wanted to use all the space. Reluctant to mess with the 1st partition, I simply created another as an 8G ext3 filesystem labelled 'p2'. On reboot I found the new partion mounted as /media/p2. Why was the partion automatically mounted? Im not complaining, just trying to understand what is happening during the boot process. If I had wanted to rezize the 1st partition from 8G to 16G how do I use Gparted safely? Can you resize the boot partion on line?
