Fedora Installation :: Could Not Allocate Requested Partitions

Jun 10, 2009

I'm trying to install 11 on my desktop from the live CD. I already have XP and Ubuntu installed, and I know for certain that I have an additional 25 GB left with my documents partition included. I am using a ~= 1 week old hard drive, so that last 25 GB is raw and unformatted.Anyway, here's what's going on: When I attempt to create a new partition in the "free space," I get an error dialog saying "Could not allocate requested partitions: not enough free space on disks."I thought maybe it was a quirk with the ext3/ext4 dilemma, maybe I had to create /boot prior to /, but I tried it both ways.

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
sda4 103 vfat

Fedora Installation :: F12 - Invalid File Being Requested?

Feb 5, 2010

I'm trying to install Fedora 12 from a DVD created by an iso I downloaded. When the install gets to the point of actually installing files, I get a message saying that it can't find 'authconfig-gtk-6.0.0.-2.fc12.i686.rpm'. I looked at the DVD for that file and it isn't there. I found 'authconfig-gtk-5.4.13-1.fc12.i686.rpm'. Any ideas how to fix this? The DVD passed the media check at the beginning of the install. I'm not exactly a newbie in Linux as I have some experience with it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Won't Recognize Partitions - Error Message Saying Partitions Over Sized

Mar 22, 2011

I used Ubuntu before, without problems but since the 10.04 version it won't recognize my partitions. I formated my laptop and partitioned it, installed Windows 7 64bit, which I need for my work, and wanted now to install Ubuntu 10.04/10. I then used GParted to check my Harddisk and it is having troubles to recognize my partitions, too while Windows finds them. GParted is giving me an error message saying my partitions are oversized. I am still in the beginning of my Linux experiences and so I don't know what to do. I have two 250GB harddisks (how Windows recognizes them),

Ubuntu Installation :: CD Doesn't Detect Partitions But No Apparent Overlapping Partitions?

Mar 3, 2010

Xubuntu 9.04 installation CD not detecting any of the current partitions. This all started when I reinstalled windows XP a few days ago.After, the computer wouldn't boot into GRUB and would boot directly into windows.Other threads have dealt with a similar issue, that of overlapping partitions causing libparted/parted/gparted to detect the whole drive as unallocated space. The problem in these threads seemed to be a corrupted partition table, in which the partitions overlapped with each other. So of course I checked the output of fdisk -l for overlapping partitions, but I don't see any obvious overlapping partitions. I've noticed that the partition that used to be linux swap isn't showing up in the partition table at all. I might just be missing something simple here and would like another set of eyes to help me figure this one out. Does the problem have anything to do with the partition table being out of order (ie. not in order of what regions they cover on the drive)? From the liveCD I've run

Code:

sudo fdisk -lu
sudo sfdisk -d
sudo parted /dev/sda print

and have received the following output:

Code:

ubuntu@ubuntu:/mnt$ sudo fdisk -lu
omitting empty partition (5)
Disk /dev/sda: 60.0 GB, 60011642880 bytes

Ubuntu Installation :: Order Of Partitions For Root / Home And Swap With Respect To Windows Partitions?

Feb 9, 2011

I am installing Ubuntu on the same hard drive as Windows 7. The partitions of Windows 7 have already occupied the left part of the hard drive. From left to right, the Windows partitions are one partition for Windows booting, one for Windows OS and software installation, and one for data which is planned to mount on Ubuntu. I was wondering how to arrange the order of partitions of root, home and swap, i.e. which is on the left just besides one Windows partition, which is in the middle and which is on the far right?

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)}]

Ubuntu Installation :: Dvice Requested Re Grub And MBR On Upgrade?

May 12, 2010

I have two instances of Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) I have installed grub2 and all seems OK except for a small bug with update-grub which I have a workaround for. Reported elsewhere

The working system is on /dev/sda7 My copy for testing is on /dev/sda5 gparted flags /dev/sda1 as "boot" and that partition has temp files only. update-grub found my test system on sda5 OK. I would like to upgrade 9.10 on /dev/sda5 to 10.04 (Lucid) as a trial as I had problems with this upgrade on my working system (sda7) and had to recover from a backup image - hence the test system on sda5

I would like advice on what happens to grub2 and MBR which I assume is on sda1 when I do this upgrade. I expect that the upgrade will change grub (in MBR?) to use sda5 instead of sda7 as the main grub filesystem. If not, then all is fine and I carry on as usual.

If not then how to I re-instate my working grub (/boot/grub/*) to sda7 (my working system) as far as the bootloader in MBR is concerned. Is it simply a case of backup and then re-install MBR after the upgrade? Or is there a better way or have I misunderstood something?

Ubuntu Installation :: Did Not Do Upgrade Just Requested Clean Install

I have tried to do a clean install of 10.10 on a system that previously had 9.4 on it. Did not do an upgrade just requested a clean install of UBUNTU. Install proceeds to create user name/password page then just stops. Install line below says ready when you are but I do not get a forward to come up on the screen, it just sits there. I have used different hard drives and a different cdrom drive and 2 different installation disks and it does the same thing.

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

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.

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.

Fedora :: Error 12: Invalid Device Requested - Win 7 + F11

Dec 4, 2009

I have installed Windows 7 followed by Fedora 11. Everytime I install Fedora 11 with Win 7, the first to boot, I get BOOTMGR missing. Later I used "df -h" command to see the disk file usage fdisk -l" to see the info regarding Disk Partitions. Went into the /boot/grub/menu.lst and modified the order. I set the partition where I find the bootmgr.exe.mui, there was another file named "memtest.exe.mui in the same file.

I navigated to the above said through Fedora 11. Located inside the Win 7 installed directory /boot/en-US/

When I changed the menu.lst file, I get a new error Error 12: Invalid device requested when I tried to boot Win 7. Does that mean that Fedora 11 GRUB is not getting the bootmgr.exe.mui since its 2 levels inside the boot directory ??

Fedora :: Error: Cannot Assign Requested Address

Jun 7, 2010

Every time I upgrade my system I run a post install script. This script made some harm to the network start that prevents sshd from starting, but I was unable to detect the problem. In my boot.log I found this:

[...]
Starting NetworkManager daemon: [ OK ]
Starting Avahi daemon... Jun 2 14:58:48 Antares kernel: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready

[code]...

So there is a "bind to port 22 failed" probably caused by "eth0: link is not ready", but after the sshd init script fails the eth0 is ready...

Fedora Installation :: How Big Should My Partitions Be

Jun 29, 2009

I going to dual boot Fedora 11 and Windows Vista (although Windows Vista is currently defunct) and have wrested about 120 GB from Vista and can't get any more. (This is an old computer, but when I tried to fix Vista by going in to make rescue and recovery discs, it did me the additional service of deleting my Linux partitions). I think I want the partition structure:

Windows ntfs partition - Shared vfat partition (biggest) - / ext4 partition (20-30 GB) - Home ext4 partition - Boot ext3 partition - swap partition

Correct me if I'm wrong. How big should the home and boot partitions be, and should I have a /home partition at all if I am going to be putting my personal data on the shared partition instead? I have 3GB RAM which I think means a 2GB swap is good.

Fedora Installation :: LVM Vs Regular Partitions

Jun 24, 2009

I am happily running Fedora 8 on my Inspiron 6400 Laptop. I am looking to upgrade to Fedora 11 soon, and had a partitioning question.

Currently my disk looks like this:

My question has to do with using LVM's in Fedora... What are the benefits of LVM vs just regular partitions (even though in F11 they are ext4 ) ? Does it make mounting the drives from a live CD or backing up partitions more difficult? I use PartImage to backup the entire partition... with this work with LVM?

Fedora Installation :: Can't Create Partitions On HDD

May 30, 2010

I'm trying to install Fedora 13 on the HDD of a notebook, currently used by Windows XP. I have several partitions used but have also about 18 GB of free space.If i try the "use free space" option to install Fedora i immediately get an error:

Quote:

Could not allocate requested partitions:

not enough free space on disk

So I have to create the partitions manually. My disk partitioning is that you can see in the image:For first i try to create a /boot partition (ext3, 250 MB). This operation is completed successfully. But from here any operation i try to create other partitions returns an error like the previous ("...not enough free space on disks")I have over 17 GB of free space, as you can see.Maybe my disk partitioning is somehow strange and the partitioning tool can't handle it properly.

Fedora Servers :: TFTP Case Insensitive To File Name Requested

Jun 19, 2010

I am downloading some files via tftp from the server (call it my server) and I need the server to be case insensitive to the file names requested. That is If I request "SoMe.TTL" and the actual file name is "some.ttl" it should send "some.ttl" back! Right now it is case sensitive and is a pain in the but because some windows clients upload files to that directory and the names can have any case. Furthermore, the file request mechanism must allow the user to input the required file name, hence the user can write using any case. Can the tftp-server solve cases by it's own? How about dnsmasq's internal tftp server? Ok, maybe I wasn't explicit above:
I need to make the fedora tftpd-server Case Insensitive!

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Start Wifi - WPA Passwd Always Requested

The symptom is that I'm always asked to enter the WPA passwd.

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.38.6-26.rc1.fc15.i686.PAE #1 SMP Mon May 9 20:36:50 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

2- Network interfaces are detected:

4- lsusb returns:

5- lsmod returns:

6- iwlist wlan0 scanning detects wifi networks without problems.

7- relevant dmesg entries:

8- wpa_supplicant.log

I've tried many suggestions from this forum about RT3090 or RT2800, but none worked :-(none seemed to be close to my problem:

Most of them relates to interface not seen, wifi networks not detected, system freeze.
