Actually, I am very interested in knowing how to non destructively resize
my partitions without reinstalling OBSD too. I have searched and come up
empty too. Is there a BSD utility that will allow me to accomplish this?
When I first did the install, I made a newbie mistake and set my swap
partition about 3.5 times too big (200MB) on my OBSD 2.8 firewall/NAT box
(486-100mhz 32 MB RAM).
I would like to set my swap to 64MB (can I make it smaller....I am just
using it as a firewall/nat and possibly an ntp server--if i can get the ntp
to work properly) and reclaim that extra space.
Also, how much space do I need to accommodate the full source code on my
harddrive? I have a small harddrive (about 500 MB)

Hi, currently my /pub partition is bigger than my /home partition and
in the past I would just reinstall Openbsd to resize it. I looked in
the archives and saw a few references to it but nothing solid. How
would I go about starting the process or where can I look for further
readings on it?
