Hi guys,

I am re-installing opensuse Tumbleweed on a laptop because I ran out
of disk space on my root partition. It seems to be set to use only
40GB by default (which seems small considering snapshots).

I am having trouble resizing this to a larger amount of space during
the installation step. I tried resizing the `/home` partition to a
smaller size so that more space is available to use. But it still
means you cant use the newly available space it seems due to its
position on the disk.

Could someone advise on how I can increase the size correctly?

PS: I tried manually deleting the /home partition, resizing the root,
and creating a new /home partition - but the actual installation then
failed for me. I'm guessing its because I'm not setting that up

Hmm, this is what ISTR I did two weeks ago: Select doing my own setup, based
on current one, then delete home/swap and change size of root. Finally add
other partitions again. The important part is likely the correct layout of
the btrfs subvolumes.

How exactly (at what point? Error messages?) did yours fail?
