OK, in reading the btrfs wiki more, resize the filesystem does not
affect the size of the actual partition. Looks like I need to do
that first. Will have to dig out a gparted cd, or perhaps a opensuse
install dvd.

Why not calling cfdisk from inside the running system?

Does the system still work? Yes


This worked great! Thanks. I had to swallow hard before deleting the
partition. But cfdisk next created a new one that used all the space on
that drive. Then ran...

btrfs filesystem resize max /

and I've got a larger partition, all working fine.

By the way, I tried using Yast Partitioner to do this before I tried cfdisk. Yast thru up multiple error messages when trying to delete the partition, so that method failed on this task for me.
