I am looking for a way
to clone and resize a Fedora 12 x86_64 system to a new hard drive which
provides a lot more capacity. The system I wish to clone is encrypted
with luks. I basically need to move the whole system to a larger drive,
then resize the partitions larger. These are ext4 partitions. Here is
what my grub.conf kernel line says:|
kernel /vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-174.fc12.x86_64 ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_deafeng298-lv_root_deafeng298 LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us
Is there a procedure available for doing this?
What if I just cloned the existing drive to the new drive using RIPLinux and ddrescue, then attempted to resize the clone's partitions? I'm fuzzy about how to do this. Or perhaps use a Fedora Live DVD and ddrescue?
