    Make my dual booted Kali partition smaller

    I've got Kali dual booted with OSX and I want to make the Kali partition smaller because I don't have enough room on the Mac side any more. However, I can't resize the partitions from Mac because they aren't "partitioned" per se in Disk Manager, it just shows that I have a lot of space filled by "Untitled".

    I want to use GParted, but it won't let me resize my Linux partition because obviously it's in use while I run GParted. How do I get around this and make my Kali partition smaller? I've checked a bunch of forums and stuff but haven't managed to find anything useful and I'm at my wit's end for what should be a simple task.


    fdisk -l output:

    Disk /dev/sda: 233.8 GiB, 251000193024 bytes, 490234752 sectors
    Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes

    Partition table entries are not in disk order.

    Boot with kali live and then use Gparted.

    :-/ Yes that seems right. Gparted is a great program. Workes great for what you need.
