I have three adjacent disk partitions as reported by
/local is at around 107% full all the time and needs to
grow. /home is nearly empty ( new machine).
What I want to do is combine ad0s1g and h into
a new /local and add another disk for /home.
I have tried sysinstall disklabel to delete
the three partitions g, b, and h then recreate swap and
/local. But noooooo the program says it can't write
to the disk. BTW /local and /home were umounted and I
was in single user mode.
I suppose I could get creative with mount points but I
would rather resize/combine the three partitions into two.
How can I do that (short of a reinstall)?
