    Tailor 0.1.0 can now resize partitions.

    Your data is at grave risk. Do not run this on devices with live data.

    Tailor 0.2.0 in the alpha-apps feeds is now feature complete, but likely bug-ridden.

    Serious alpha testers only please.

    Note that resizing filesystems is different from resizing LVM partitions. The former is not shown by lvdisplay, and the latter is not implemented yet.

    Check the USB filesystem, and you should see the smaller filesystem size within the unchanged partition size.

    Thanks, understand the difference between logical volumes and file systems, but it is Tailor that is telling me it was 18432 MiB (same as before even though I resized smaller), then I confirmed with 'lvscan'. I didn't take a note of the size in 'df' (before), so can't be sure... seems about the same.

    Now trying v0.2.0.

    One question, should I be unmounting my current mounts before I try any resize operations?
    E.g.

    /media/ext3fs
    /media/internal
    /opt

    I'd always do that in normal circumstances, because I'm cautious about not damaging anything, but is that the intention, or should it automatically take care of this?

    Tailor should make you unmount each partition before allowing you to do anything else with it.

    Yes, it does make you.
    The first time I was just cautious and thinking ahead and umounted before it told me.

    So I started with 18GB /dev/store/media.

    # lvscan
    ACTIVE '/dev/store/root' [568.00 MB] inherit
    ACTIVE '/dev/store/var' [64.00 MB] inherit
    ACTIVE '/dev/store/update' [16.00 MB] inherit
    ACTIVE '/dev/store/log' [24.00 MB] inherit
    ACTIVE '/dev/store/mojodb' [256.00 MB] inherit
    ACTIVE '/dev/store/filecache' [136.00 MB] inherit
    ACTIVE '/dev/store/media' [18.00 GB] inherit
    ACTIVE '/dev/store/swap' [400.00 MB] inherit
    ACTIVE '/dev/store/ext3fs' [9.64 GB] inherit

    # df /media/internal/
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/mapper/store-media
    18869696 863968 18005728 5% /media/internal

    # df /media/ext3fs/
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/mapper/store-ext3fs
    9950048 1071416 8373188 11% /media/ext3fs

    ----

    Then I used Tailor v0.2.0.
    Resizing USB 18428 MiB filesystem to 16000 MiB.

    The new size Too Small/Too Big logic is good... it doesn't appear to let me do anything too silly... although it does allow a quite small USB... under 1GB... didn't try this.

    In the end USB fs resized to 15997 MiB.
    Then repeated for the 'partition' -> 16000 MiB

    ----

    Checking in command line again and now 'lvscan' reports:

    ACTIVE '/dev/store/media' [15.62 GB] inherit

    # df /media/internal/
    Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/mapper/store-media
    16379936 864096 15515840 5% /media/internal


    Will resize back again soon.

    Perhaps later I'll get it to remove my ext3fs and recover the space... I've got a backup of my debian.

    One thing, I notice an option called "Corrupt Filesystem"
    Is this to scramble the filesystem... for example before selling the device?

    Resizing back again.

    One useful feature would be a "MAX" option... instead of guessing/calculating the maximum possible filesystem size to enter.

    Yes, I intend to put MIN, -1GB, +1GB, and MAX buttons above the text entry box.

    The corrupt filesystem option is just there to be able to test the repair fileystem functionality. Don't use it on a filesystem which has data you wish to keep. It will be removed before Tailor goes beta.

    Updated to version 0.3.0.

    Now I'm going to test removing debian/ubuntu and recovering all space.

    First make some backups.
    Then use Preware to remove all Optware packages using /media/ext3fs/opt
    Then remove debian and ubuntu which are also using /media/ext3fs/

    ===

    Reboot -> start Tailor v0.3.0 (see screenshot for starting point).
    Select Partition -> select the ext3 partition
    Unmount Partition
    Select Activity -> Delete Partition
    The ext3 partition is deleted.

    Here it prompts me to Create Partion... but instead scroll back to the top.

    Select Partition -> select USB (media)
    Unmount Partition
    Check Filesystem
    Get calulator and some trial and error to find the largest size...
    Resize USB to 28304 MiB.
    Check Filesystem
    Select Activity -> Mount Partition

    Now I've got the space back and everything works.

    ===

    Checking space in /media/internal

    Code:
    # df /media/internal
    Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/mapper/store-media
                          28976160    737472  28238688   3% /media/internal
    Some thoughts...

    Combining the resizing the logical volume and resize filesystem in one operation is good.

    Perhaps there should be an option to remove the line from /etc/fstab

    Code:
    /dev/mapper/store-ext3fs /media/ext3fs auto noatime 0 0
    But I'm not sure it hurts to have it... perhaps it make bootup take longer waiting to mount?
    In any case, I rebooted and everything seems good.

    In some respects I'm thinking this should be going to the beta feed and getting ready for the main webos-internals feed... yes there are some risks, but trying to explain to people how to do this from command line has some risks too.

    OK, now you can test creating it again

    Now creating ext3 partition for debian/ubuntu/optware

    Start Tailor v0.3.0
    Select Partition -> USB (media) selected
    Unmount Partition
    Check Filesystem
    Resize USB (media) Partition -> 16400 MiB
    Check Filesystem
    Select Activity -> Mount Partition
    Select Partition -> Unused Space
    Create Partition -> User (ext3) -> 11904 MiB
    Create Partition
    Check Filesystem

    Here it prompts me to Resize... but instead scroll back up.

    Select Activity for User (ext3) -> Mount Partition
    Mount Partition

    ====

    Confirm filesystem using 'df' and install Optware bootstrap and Nano and see these are installed to /media/ext3fs/opt

    Some thoughts...

    Nice to see it filled in the unused space value for me when I went to create the ext3fs.

    When I created the ext3 filesystem I was able to mount, because I already had the mountpoint and the line in /etc/fstab ... but what if I didn't have those... would it have created them for me (or given the option)?

    this is so sick! What can't we do with webOS? Can't wait for the RC. Chrooting made easy from hard work. That's why I love this community.

    Never mind... just tested it.

    Umount /media/ext3fs
    Remove line from /etc/fstab
    Remove mount point /media/ext3fs
    Delete the partition and start creation of ext3 user volume again.

    ===

    Select Partition -> Unused Space
    Create Partition -> User (ext3) -> 11904 MiB
    Create Partition
    Check Filesystem
    Select Activity for User (ext3) -> Mount Partition

    Service Error (mountPartition)
    Command failed: mount can't find /media/ext3fs in /etc/fstab

    ===

    So if you don't already have the mount point and the line in /etc/fstab, these steps are still needed from command line.

    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw /
    echo "/dev/mapper/store-ext3fs /media/ext3fs auto noatime 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
    mkdir /media/ext3fs
    mount -o remount,ro /
    Then continue to mount the ext3 volume and you are ready to go.

    I am still learning about WebOS and do not consider myself an android expert by any means, but I read the warnings and was comfortable with data loss. I have used and was okay with the potential of having to doctor the touchpad. I had failed at manually resizing the media partition, but was able to use the Tailor program to increase its size so I would have more space for my CM7 “sdcard.” Thanks for the great program. I am glad that my touchpad has both OSs since I bounce back and forth. The WebOS community is awesome and very helpful.

    It seems that will be a useful feature to add.

    It can also be used to resize any of your Android partitions ...

    Tried this app out.. useful utility to have.. I was curious to see what happened after I ran ACMEUninstaller. It said I had 8 MiB left of freespace, so I used Tailor to size it up to 28192 MiB.

    Wondering if that is the correct size partition that /media/internal is supposed to have if no other partitions are visible in Tailor?

    I never did understand why Windows 2000, etc. liked to leave 8 megs freespace.

    Thanks for this app...i bought a used touchpad and noticed that it was missing about 4gb,i tried everthing from web doctor to checking for extra partitions with swissknife.
    only when i found out about this app did i find the missing 4gb.
    tailor worked as advertised found the extra partition deleted it and added it back to the media partition with no problem... you guys at webos internals rock
