Is there a way to change the partition sizes on my HTC Desire.  After rooting and installing CM my /system partition is way too  big and /data is filling up constantly.

Is it possible to change partition sizes or move/remount some folders in the data partition to the system partition?

This is how my data partition space is used right now:

localhost data # du -h -d 1 | grep M
28.6M ./app
19.5M ./data
2.6M ./tombstones
66.2M ./dalvik-cache
117.6M .

localhost data # df -h
Filesystem                               Size      Used       Available Use% Mounted on
tmpfs                                   203.3M         0           203.3M   0%   /dev
tmpfs                                   203.3M         0           203.3M   0%   /mnt/asec
/dev/block/mtdblock3    250.0M    114.1M     135.9M  46%  /system
/dev/block/mtdblock5    147.6M    121.4M       26.3M  82%  /data
/dev/block/mtdblock4     40.0M      1.1M           38.9M   3%   /cache

I think the ability to partition is one of the things S-Off is supposed to allow but I don't know if there's a tool yet to make this user-friendly.

In the meantime, you can try going to xda-developers and downloading DarkTremor A2SD, which will allow you to fully install all apps to a partition on your sd card.  This effectively gives you almost unlimited space.

This is an excellent solution. It gives me you a lot more space apps.
I set this up like the nexus one: 145mb /system, 95mb /cache. Which leaves 197mb for /data. Moved the dalvik cache to /cache.

There is also a modified version of cyanogenmod available, for easy install: http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?p=8581384
