sudo sh ./resize2fs start
[....] Starting resize2fs (via systemctl): resize2fs.serviceJob for resize2fs.service failed. See 'systemctl status resize2fs.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.

normally (when moving manually from a small to a bigger sdcard) İ do the following:

fdisk /dev/myospartition

d for delete the partition

n for new primary partition

set size to 95% of the max sector/cluster

set partition type to 83 linux

(leave ext4 marker intact = dont delete)

set boot flag for partition

w for write and exit

(os will use the old partition data until reboot)

reboot

After reboot at commandline:

resize2fs /dev/myospartition

I have the same problem

I cannot resize the fs to the larger SD card

 

neither the command

update-rc.d firstrun defaults

works, it returns

update-rc.d: error: unable to read /etc/init.d/firstrun

 

nor the above mentioned resite2fs, it retirnes the above mentioned "Nothing to do!"

 

 

Thanks for any help

Rainer
