## fdisk -l /dev/hda
#Disk /dev/hda: 10.7 GB, 10737418240 bytes
#255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1305 cylinders
#Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
#   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
#/dev/hda1   *           1         336     2698888+  83  Linux

You can see here that the last cylinder of your disk (1305) differs from the last cylinder of your last and extended partitions (1174), the difference is the volume you added. For this additional space to be taken into account at the partition level, you have to remove the hda2 and hda6 partitions, then recreate them giving the correct last cylinder.

After that resize2fs will work.

Any idea to get it working ?
