In a RHES v3 environment, how do I re-size (shrink) an ext3 filesystem? The solution can require the filesystem to be unmounted.
"parted" doesn't seem to be able to do this - the parted v1.6.25 we have claims that it doesn't understand ext3, or that the "ext2 filesystem looks funny". Yes, the GNU docs list ext3 as a supported filesystem.
e2fsprogs seems to require a v2.6 kernel, which is not presently an option.
We tried Knoppix, but it mounts (and won't let us unmount) the server's root filesystem.
