Regarding FDE - /Boot and gparted in vms, reason why its in OT below:

I only posted this here, because of one thing specifically, its because I am speaking of doing this with regards to Hyperbola.

Does anyone know how to use gparted, or gpart to disable encryption temporarily in luks, so I can resize the vm, but without increasing the size on  the physical disk but make sure that it is available in the virtual disk.

Right now for example, I have a qcow2 that uses 8.4GB but,  it has 118GB virtual disk size in it.

Reason being, I want to be able to copy the qcow2 to disk whenever needed without any annoying problems, of space getting used up too much.

I also wanted to make a few variants of it.




and still have the 118GB of course. smile

The non used space though, I don't want to take up physical space on disk though.

Black Lives Matter!  I am white, but I prefer equality over hatred.

Peace be with you!
No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and mammon!
