I'm using Parrot OS (parrotsec.org).

How can I resize the image so that I have more space on my root partition?

Raspbian does this automatically on boot up, but Parrot OS doesn't. How would I do this?

  • You need a bootable system before worrying about expanding the file system Mar 20, 2017 at 3:55
  • Bootable system ??!!!. @SteveRobillard Mar 20, 2017 at 3:58
  • a system that allows you to run commands, not just a _blinking Mar 20, 2017 at 3:59

Problem Found: I tried an older version like Parrot 3.0 and it was working. The 3.4 does not have automatic resizing for the partition.

  • The resize shellscript can be copied from raspbian.
