Force auto partition with new Debian 11 on BeagleBone Black

When I flash am335x-debian-11.5-minimal-armhf-2022-11-01-2gb.img.xz (Debian 11 newest monthly) from Debian 11.x (Bullseye) - Monthly Snapshots onto a microSD card using Balena Etcher, the space shown is an underestimate of the actual space:

> df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
...
/dev/mmcblk0p1  1.7G  876M  749M  54% /
...

(there’s actually 4 GB on the BeagleBone Black.)

Reboot… The auto partition resize takes a reboot to finish…

Sometimes when I reboot the auto partition takes place, but recently, it’s not taking place. Is there some command(s) to force a partition to occur?

On the ‘very’ first bootup, there is a long line of first run scripts… From ssh generation, to ti-sgx module installation…

1st script on first bootup:

2nd script after reboot:

Thank you for the quick response, looks like sudo /usr/bin/bb-resizefs did the trick!
