Re sizing my ext4 partition help - thingofmyth - 04-03-2013
I am dual-booting backtrack 5r3( I know, I will use a live usb after i get to exparament) and windows 7. I have been having some trouble. I am trying to shrink the backtrack partition so that I can triple boot with ubuntu.
I can't use gparted atm because I am stranded at a coffe shop without my usb cable for my iphone(which I use for usb storage)
I have tried to use minitool partition wizard and it wont let me resize my ext4 partition for backtrack(which shows up as RAW data in the native windows disk manager)

Installing Gentoo would solve this problem.

I concur, installing Gentoo solves the problem.

Nah, LFS will work better

What is different about Gentoo? compared to Ubuntu and LFS?

Your partitions are all *ucked up.
I don't think triple booting is a good idea at all.
It's not good to boot multiple OS on the same machine, it always turns into problems one day or another.

Listen to Venam.
What is the point of tripple bootin your machine?

You do know instead of Ubuntu or Backtrack, you can install debian and install backtrack tools on debian.
