Fedora Installation :: Unable To Create Partition - Not Enough Free Space

May 17, 2010

I just downloaded the new fedora and proceed to install it into a free space of 11GB on my HDD. As such the partitioner is unable to create more than 1 partitioneven if free space is available, it reports not enough free space seen if its present. As such it can create only one of the three partitions i.e., swap or / or /home duw to which cannot proceed ahead.' Some more details me running Xp as the other OS on my system.

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Create Partitions - No Free Space

Aug 7, 2011

Two nights ago I installed the KDE Spin of F15 and it all went smoothly. Then, I decided to try and use Windows' bootloader (it was a dual-boot) instead of GRUB. So I booted into Windows, spun up EasyBCD, added the correct entry for Fedora, and overwrote the MBR. I rebooted and tried to boot into Fedora, only to realize that the Windows Boot Manager had a failsafe that sensed when it didn't boot into Windows, and it stopped me from booting into Fedora.

At first, I booted into my live USB and tried to get GRUB back. After a couple Konsoles full of GRUB telling me that it couldn't mount the drive and install itself, I decided I was probably doing something wrong and it would be much easier to just reinstall Fedora.

I deleted the Fedora partitions I had made earlier from Windows (because it was already running). Then I booted into my live USB and tried to install Fedora. I clicked "OK" to make a partition (that would mount at /boot) that was 500 mb. It told me there wasn't enough space, but sitting right next to one of the already installed partitions was more than 190000 mb of space. So I tried to redo the partition with 250 mb, then I tried to make the swap partition and the main one (that would mount at /). I kept getting the error. I decided maybe it was a problem with the USB, so I rebooted into Windows and reinstalled the ISO onto the USB (with unetbootin) and repeated the process, only to get the same error.

P.S- I tried to use the option to "Use Free Space" as well as doing it manually and got the same error. Also, I saw another thread where a person with my same type of compute (a Lenovo Y560) had a similar problem. It might be possible there's a hidden partition for Lenovo's purposes? Anyways, the other user's solution was to move the an extended partition somewhere. I'll be posting an fdisk soon, in case I have the same problem as the other user. The other user used GParted, but it looks like I can use Easeus too, which I already have installed.

P.P.S- Here's the fdisk in case it will help:

Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 640.1 GB, 640135028736 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 77825 cylinders, total 1250263728 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To See Or Allocate Drive Space On Install

Jun 21, 2011

I have an Acer Aspire One that came with Windows 7 starter and 1GB of ram. I am currently trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 via USB drive. The problem that I am having is, whenever I get to the Allocate drive space screen it shows nothing. The box is pink with not text. If I click on Install now anyway I receive a No Root File System error. Currently the hard drive has NO partitions on it, including no file systems. It's completely blank and it is also showing up in my BIOS.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Allocate Free Space To 10.10 Partition On HD

Jan 24, 2011

I have a notebook with dual boot windows and Ubuntu 10.10 on a 80 Gig hard drive. The windows XP partition was initially installed and took up the whole drive (dev/sda1). I then freed up some space and created and installed Ubuntu (/dev/sda6) and swap (/dev/sda5) on an extended partition (/dev/sda2). Initially I only freed up 3.6 Gig which I thought would be more than enough but not any more. I cannot even install the updates as there is only 100 Meg left which is not enough. I then freed up more space (8 gig) from the windows partition to allocate to Ubuntu.

My problem is that I can't seem to find to now allocate this "freed-up" space to Ubuntu? I realise that I have to boot-up from a the Ubuntu live disk so that the hard drive is not mounted to allow changes but I'm still unable to change the partitions. I'm using GParted.
The drive looks like this currently:
[...NTFS] [...Unallocated] [...Extended{(ext4),(linux-swap)}]

Fedora Installation :: Error: Could Not Allocate Requested Partitions - Not Enough Free Space On Disks

Jul 11, 2010

I'm trying to install Fedora 13 on my HP dv6 laptop and when I try to use the Use Free Space installation type, I receive a Partitioning Error: Could not allocate requested partitions - not enough free space on disks. Before I started the install, I used the Disk Management utility in Windows 7 to shrink the volume of the C: drive down to 242 GB and leaving 210 GB Unallocated. Here is what the screen looks like when I select Create Custom Layout (also receive the not enough free space error):

Device (sda) Size Type
sda1 199 ntfs
sda2 248,018 ntfs
Free 215,175
sda3 13,443 ntfs

Fedora :: Unable To Use Free Space In Hard Drive.

Jul 28, 2009

I installed Fedora 11 about a week ago. And all was going well until I woke up this morning, and started using it for a little bit. I noticed it was going painfully slow... (almost like Windows Vista >.<) and I started to look for a reason why. Turns out my free space in my filesystem is running out. I have a 500g hard drive, and for some reason my filesystem is only set to use 9gigs...

Why can I only use 9 gigs of my hard drive? And how can I increase that size to something less annoying so I don't have to delete stuff every few days? Also, I'm kinda new to Linux. So if this is a newb question, and you can link me somewhere to get the information, please do. I just spent an hour or so searching google, and using this forums search to no avail.

Ubuntu :: Unable To See The Free Space On Hard Disk

Aug 14, 2010

I currently dual-boot Win7 and Ubuntu 10.04, before I came back on Ubuntu, I uninstall-ed many programs to free up some space. Before I restarted my computer to boot back into Ubuntu my Internal HD had 43.5GB of free space, and when I booted into Ubuntu I checked the free space and it only showed 7.9GB of free space, did I check the wrong thing? Is 'File System' the Ubuntu equivalent to the C: drive in Windows?

Hardware :: Unable To Create Partition In Unallocated Space

Jul 5, 2011

I am trying to install Elementary OS on my laptop! When the installer gets to partitioning part, I find about 90 GB of unallocated space on my hard disk. When I try to create a partition in this space, the partitioner very humbly informs me that it is not possible to create more than 4 Primary partitions. Now my partitioning scheme (rather jumbled up!) is attached herewith.

/dev/sda2 is extended partition with sda5 to sda10.
/dev/sda3 was a fat partition that I used to store my data (I deleted it)
/dev/sda4 is another primary partition.
Windows Vista sits on sda1
Ubuntu sits on sda5, sda6 and sda7 and
Sabayon sits on sda9, sda10 and sda4. Now I have three unallocated disjointed spaces (approx. 5GB, 20GB and 92GB)I had selected the third unallocated space (92GB) to create a new partition for my fresh Elementary OS install but I am faced with the 4 Primary Partitions limit.My partition table is a total mess! Can anyone suggest a way out ?

Ubuntu :: Partition Manager: Unable To Resize Partition To Use Free Space BEFORE Partitio?

May 29, 2011

I have around 30gb of free space in my partition table immediately before the Linux partition. I want to resize my linux partition to take up this space.

I tried booting with live cd, sucessfully umounted the hard drive but found I could not resize the partition. On clicking the 'edit size' button, partition manager recognised the free space before the partition but when i reduced this, the 'ok' button was greyed out. (it was not greyed out for the windows partition so I could, in theory, increase the windows partition to take up the free space but this is not what i wanted to do).

I am pretty sure that I had managed to unmount the drive correctly as the padlock symbol had dissapeared (I took the attached screenshot, which does show the lock symbol, after rebooting into my normal system).

Anyone got any ideas as to why it wont allow this? There is no reason why i can resize the partition to take up the free space BEFORE it is there?

CentOS 5 :: How To Create A Local Mirror

Aug 22, 2011

I am trying to create a local mirror/repository for CentOS 5.6 for updates and network installs. I have read the page here on the site about how to do it over and over again, and I still can't figure it out. I have already created the directory, but right after that, I can't go any further. I know this is much easier than I probably think it is. Would someone mind telling me, (in beginners terms) on how to do this? I just want the 'os' package and nothing else.

Fedora Installation :: Error - There Isn't Enough Free Space On The Disks To Create The Layout

Aug 14, 2009

I got a new computer (core i7, 6gb ram, 500gb hdd).I first installed Windows 7, because I remembered how Fedora 9 created a dual-boot screen nicely, while if I installed XP on a system with Fedora 9 it would just take over the boot and boot to XP.Anyway, so Windows 7 is installed, and I got the Fedora 11 DVD install.I partitioned the hdd as thus (on win7 installation): 93gb windows system, 300gb media partition, 90gb unformatted.When I boot the installation and select the "use free space" I get an error that there isn't enough free space on the disks to create the layout.I also tried to create a custom layout, but after a few errors I gave up on that what should I do to get Fedora 11 installed?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Allocate And Lock Memory?

On my windows console, i have installed sun virtualbox. I only have 768MB ram and so i downloaded a trial version of eboostr. I thought it would work, but when i tried an install of 11.2, also, i tried a debian install, it did the same thing, it froze up in the middle of the install with the error Code: unable to allocate and lock memory. I guess that eboostr doesn't work, but is there a way to use a flash drive as ram in virtual box?

CentOS 5 :: Phpmyadmin Unable To Create A New User In Mysql Database

May 13, 2010

I have installed on a remote server phpmyadmin 3.3.1 and mysql 5.1.46 on a centos 5.4 OS.

Any newly created user with phamyadmin is unable to login both from mysql command line (from localhost) and phpmyadmin (localhost and remotely).

No prob when the user is created with mysql command line (from localhost). All of the users created with phpmyadmin, are not "visible" recognized from the show user command via the mysql command line. The setting I used when I create any user was the same as the ones with the mysql command line creation.

The error message I get when accessing from mysql command line (from localhost) is the following: "Access denied for user ... @localhost (using password: yes)"

Ubuntu Installation :: Bad Mirrors In Official Ubuntu Archive Mirror List?

Oct 14, 2010

I'd been wondering why I hadn't gotten any security updates since upgrading to Maverick RC a week or two ago. It turns out that it's because I'd let Ubuntu's Software Sources application "select best server" for me, and the server it chose (mirrors.ccs.neu.edu) doesn't appear to include updates for any versions of Ubuntu except Intrepid Ibex!

How crazy is that? The general list of Ubuntu mirrors reports the mirror as 'up to date', despite the fact that it doesn't actually maintain updates for current versions of Ubuntu. This strikes me as a serious problem. Software Sources should not select as a "best server" a mirror that doesn't even contain updates for your version of Ubuntu.
