Description

For disk based images, allow to resize the image to a new disk geometry. The additional space is free and not in use by the image. In order to make use of the additional free space a repartition process is required like it is provided by kiwi's oem boot code. Therefore the resize operation is useful for oem image builds most of the time.

Options

--root=<directory>

The path to the root directory, if not specified kiwi searches the root directory in build/image-root below the specified target directory

--size=<size>

New size of the image. The value is either a size in bytes or can be specified with m=MB or g=GB. Example: 20g

--target-dir=<directory>

Directory containing the kiwi build results
