thank you all for the information.
Unfortunately i do not fully understand, how to manage the shrinking.
For now, i will install the new linux on a external disc, boot and then
copy content from the f38 installation.Am I correct in thinking you were able to shrink the btrfs filesystem,but are unable to find software to adjust the partition size to match?You could use the new disk for a backup, then shrink the oversized partition.See: https://feldspaten.org/2018/06/01/resizing-btrfs-max/ -- shrink thebtrfs filesystem a bit smaller than you want, use fstab to resize the partition,then expand btrfs to use the full partition.https://itsfoss.com/btrfs/ lists the advantages of btrfs
Yes you are right. I could shrink the filesystem.
My problem starts, because gparted complains a warning, that it is possible not able to boot.
therefore i cancel the operation and read a bit deeper.
the old way, long and work intensive (finding the correct partition
size, choose the filesystem typ and so on.).
i think, it is annoying, that btrfs with f38 is so hard to use for this
my new filesystem will not be btfrs.All filesystems need backups. It seems wasteful to do an extra install.--George N.
