A user has a "workstation" default installation (distro irrelevant I
hope) with /, /home, and /usr (small root, rest 50%/50% between home
and usr). She needed some of the /home space as a new partition, so
she used cfdisk to truncate /home and free the space for the new
partition. Now Linux is reporting that the physical partition size
does not match the filesystem length ;-)
Where is the filesystem length stored and can it be manually fixed?
So far as I know, the user data is intact, as the /home partition
was little used, so the tail end of it should have been virgin space.
