[Addon] Expand Partition to Full SD Card

[Tips] Expand Partition to Full SD Card
Tested on RPi3
for RuneAudio 0.3 and 0.4b


    - RuneAudio install to 2GB partition by default.
    - This left the rest of the SD card not available for use.
    - The following script will expand the partiton to full capacity without reboot.

View code - GitHub

Expand
from Addons Menu

Note:
    Basically, it's just a script:
    echo -e 'd\n\nn\n\n\n\n\nw' | fdisk /dev/mmcblk0
    but use it at your own risk.

i get

Code: Select all
[root@runeaudio ~]# wget -qN --show-progress https://github.com/rern/RuneAudio/raw/master/expand_partition/expand.sh; chmod +x expand.sh; ./expand.sh
wget: unrecognized option '--show-progress'
Usage: wget [OPTION]... [URL]...

Try `wget --help' for more options.

1. Find the --show-progress option
Code: Select all
wget --help | grep 'show-progress'

It should show this if the option is there:
Code: Select all
#       --show-progress             display the progress bar in any verbosity mode


2. Try wget without options
Code: Select all
wget https://github.com/rern/RuneAudio/raw/master/expand_partition/expand.sh; chmod +x expand.sh; ./expand.sh

Good post but runeaudio already has a published method: http://www.runeaudio.com/documentation/ ... tition-sd/

Hi rern,

thank you for posting this.
I would like to see this as an option on the settings page.

Hi Frank,

I've been thinking it should be done by default at the very first boot.

May be something like:
- a systemd service
- an fdisk script
- remove the service and the script

Hi Frank,

This systemd run once method was tested successfully:
(Scripts and files in the link were included to the SD card before first boot.)

Code: Select all
# systemd startup service
### script: /etc/systemd/expand.service
ln -s /etc/systemd/expand.service /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/expand.service

# fdisk script
### script: /root/expand.sh
chmod +x /root/expand.sh

# 'partprobe' to avoid reboot
### file: /usr/bin/partprobe
chmod +xr /usr/bin/partprobe

### file: /usr/lib/libparted.so.2.0.1
ln -s /usr/lib/libparted.so.2.0.1 /usr/lib/libparted.so.2

Hi zomtec,

expanding the sd card works on all devices and you can use both methods
The one posted here or the one explained in the docs.

I get a error

./expand.sh: line 34: python2: command not found
sfdisk: invalid option -- 'F'

Usage:
 sfdisk [options] <device>...

Options:
 -s, --show-size           list size of a partition
 -c, --id                  change or print partition Id
     --change-id           change Id
     --print-id            print Id
 -l, --list                list partitions of each device
 -d, --dump                idem, but in a format suitable for later input
 -i, --increment           number cylinders etc. from 1 instead of from 0
 -u, --unit <letter>       units to be used; <letter> can be one of
                             S (sectors), C (cylinders), B (blocks), or M (MB)
 -1, --one-only            reserved option that does nothing currently
 -T, --list-types          list the known partition types
 -D, --DOS                 for DOS-compatibility: waste a little space
 -E, --DOS-extended        DOS extended partition compatibility
 -R, --re-read             make the kernel reread the partition table
 -N <number>               change only the partition with this <number>
 -n                        do not actually write to disk
 -O <file>                 save the sectors that will be overwritten to <file>
 -I <file>                 restore sectors from <file>
 -V, --verify              check that the listed partitions are reasonable
 -v, --version             display version information and exit
 -h, --help                display this help text and exit

Dangerous options:
 -f, --force               disable all consistency checking
     --no-reread           do not check whether the partition is in use
 -q, --quiet               suppress warning messages
 -L, --Linux               do not complain about things irrelevant for Linux
 -g, --show-geometry       print the kernel's idea of the geometry
 -G, --show-pt-geometry    print geometry guessed from the partition table
 -A, --activate[=<device>] activate the bootable flag
 -U, --unhide[=<device>]   set partition as unhidden
 -x, --show-extended       also list extended partitions in the output,
                             or expect descriptors for them in the input
     --leave-last          do not allocate the last cylinder
     --IBM                 same as --leave-last
     --in-order            partitions are in order
     --not-in-order        partitions are not in order
     --inside-outer        all logicals inside outermost extended
     --not-inside-outer    not all logicals inside outermost extended
     --nested              every partition is disjoint from all others
     --chained             like nested, but extended partitions may lie outside
     --onesector           partitions are mutually disjoint

Override the detected geometry using:
 -C, --cylinders <number>  set the number of cylinders to use
 -H, --heads <number>      set the number of heads to use
 -S, --sectors <number>    set the number of sectors to use

For more details see sfdisk(8).
