Resizing your Debian root fs on Raspberry Pi

Once you’ve copied one of the Debian disk images to an SD card, you may have noticed that the disk image is only for 2GB and you have a lot of unused space on your SD card. The raspi-config util has an option (Expand Root FS) to resize your root partition for you. There’s also plenty of other utils to do the job. I used gparted from a gparted LiveCD booted on my Mac to resize my partition and it worked well.
