OpenSUSE Install :: Format Windows Partitions Sda2 / Sda3?

May 20, 2010

I have been dual-booting Vista and openSUSE 11.2 until my SUSE install is fully functional and now and I want rid of Vista and to reclaim the space for Linux.

fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x28000000

sda2 and sda3 are the Vista partitions. sda2 is a recovery partition and sda3 is the main partition. All data is safely copied from sda3 and now I want to reformat them for SUSE. I not bothered about partition resizing i.e. I am happy to just have the sda2/sda3 space available to SUSE and mount them somewhere.

1) Do I need to do anything about the boot table first or can I just reformat sda2 & sda3?

2) How should I format sda2/sda3? I'm guessing I need to unmount them and then format. Should I use ext4 or something else? Which command/tool should I use?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot - Two Identical Windows Partitions - Sda2 Sda2?

Mar 26, 2011

I just successfully installed ubuntu 10.10 Meerkat Maverik parallel to manufacturer installed Windows 7 Professional on a newly bought ThinkPad t410. All works find just that on the boot screen instead of 1 Windows partition (usually something like "Windows 7 loader on sda1") I find two Windows partitions. Now, I know that Thinkpads have a recovery partition. Funny is though that both "Windows 7 loader on sda1/2" login to what seems the identical Windows (not one of them the "normal" and the other some form of a recovery).

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


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

and have received the following output:


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

Hardware :: Change Primary Partitions To Logical Partitions AND Migrate Their Data?

Mar 28, 2010

I've installed Arch Linux onto my Western Digital SATA drive.I love it, best ever, however, I need the fglrx proprietry driver for better 3-d performace, and decided to create a new partition. I decided to install Linux Mint.Sadly, in all my noobishness, I forgot about the 4 primary partition limit (oops!) and as I have /, /home, swap, and /boot partitions (all primary) already installed, I have run into a bit of a problem.I resized my /home partition (almost 500GB) to about 225, and was then told I have over 200GB unusable space. Is it possible for me to change at least 1 of my primary partitions to logical partitions AND keep all the data intact (AND edit the arch configuration so that it'll still work) so I can install a second linux? I sincerely doubt it

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?

Slackware :: Is It Safe To Resize Slackware Partitions After Removing Mint 10 Partitions?

Feb 17, 2011

I've reached a point in my Slackware journey where I feel confident enough to remove my Mint 10 linux. It used to be my 'go to distro' when I trashed my Slackware installation. Now, I have Slax on a USB and I think that is enough.Mint 10 occupies /dev/sda5 (root) and /dev/sda6 (home) while Slackware occupies /dev/sda7 (root) and /dev/sda8 (home).If I delete the /dev/sda5 & /dev/sda6 partitions, can I very safely resize /dev/sda7 and /dev/sda8 to use the space freed up?

Fedora :: 11 - Installed Citrix Ica Client From The Citrix Website Does Not Seem To Be Working

Jul 16, 2009

I have fedora 11, and installed citrix ica client from the citrix website, but it does not seem to be working. Basically nothing happens instead of launching. I have also installed "terminal server client" (which does work except for the citrix ica connection part of it). In this program when you go to the option "Add connection", then there is an option that says "Citrix ICA connection". It used to be greyed out before I installed the citrix client from the citrix website. Now it is not greyed out but nothing happens when you click on it (also no error messages). I also tried going on the hard drive to '/usr/lib/ICAClient/wfica' and also to "/usr/lib/ICAClient/wfcmgr" and manually trying to launch those executable files but nothing happens there as well.

General :: Partitions And LVM

Jun 7, 2010

I'm trying to learn about partitions and LVM although I'm still getting my head around it. I've set up my RHEL test server (has single 80GB disk) with LVM. As I understand it, it goes like this: -

Setup up several partitions for this, in this case hda5 - 7. hda1 is my boot partition which has to be on primary. hda2 is a regular 10GB primary partition that holds the OS and hda3 is the swap partition. hda4 is the extended partition which houses hda5 to 7. They're 5GB each. I assume I cannot access partition 4 directly as it's simply the holder for the logical partitions?

So I've set hda5 - 7 partitions with type '8e' (LVM). I then created a Volume Group called VolGroup01 and since the drive is only 80GB, stick with the default Physical Extent size of 4MB. I assign this Volume Group to /dev/hda5 (why does a Volume Group as an abstraction have to be assigned a partition?).

I then create a Logical Volume called LogVol01 of 500MB and assign it to the new VolGroup01. I format this with ext3 and created a /etc/fstab entry to automount it. First I tried to use /dev/VolGroup01/LogVol01 as this seemed logical but this threw me into maintenance mode and I had to remount the drive as read-write to change the fstab Why do I have to use /dev/mapper/VolGroup01-LogVol01 instead? Doesn't seem very consistent.

So I assume I can add as many Logical Volumes as I like, presumably across any of the partitions I've created with type '8e'. But I'm uncertain about the relationship between the various parts. Creating a Volume Group I get as it's a virtual holder for the partitions that I can add across many disks. So are Logical Volumes an abstraction of partitions? Since partitions themselves can be any size, why have added functionality to size Logical Volumes as well? Not sure I get that part.

Now I need to learn how to either resize the current Logical Volume or add more

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 :: Partitions Do Not Always Mount

Dec 4, 2009

I am running Fedora 12 i686. I have three hard drives in my computer with multiple partitions. Three of these partitions are mounted in /mnt by fstab. sdc10, sdb11, sdc1. all are EXT3. About four of every five startups they are mounted. One drive is ATA the other two are SATA and when they are not mounted the drive order is changed the ATA drive which should be sdc is reported by gparted as sda and the SATA drives sda and sdb.

Here is my fstab:

# /etc/fstab

OpenSUSE :: No Access To Other Partitions

Mar 8, 2011

I am currently testing for the first time openSUSE.I experience some problems right away, the most important problem:I can not get through the explorer (Dolphin) on another partition.When I try, I read underneath:

There was an error while accessing 'Disk 2'. The system notified:

org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolycy: org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed
auth_admin_keep_always <- (action, result)

I've already started looking at different solutions. But I'm not familiar enough with KDE to just be able to solve this problem. Anyone have any idea what to do to acces other partitions or drives anyway? Another problem is that the GUI is very slow, moving windows and scrolling is not smooth. Anyone have any idea what I can do about this?

I also have a black taskbar since I've moved it to my main screen as it automatically appeared on my small screen. How do I get it brighter again so the clock is readable again?And finally, the Explorer (Dolphin) has a very annoying behavior, I need only to click a folder to open it then as I really only want to select. How can I make a folder only open when I double click on it?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 DVD Cannot See Any Partitions

Dec 9, 2009

I had a Windows 7 RC/openSUSE 11.1 dual-boot on this computer running on RAID 1. When I installed Windows 7 final, somehow it screwed up my RAID 1. I fought with it for a while, but decided to wipe the logical drive, and then go into BIOS and disable RAID. I reinstalled Windows 7 on the HDD, but I have no RAID now. BIOS shows 4 SATA drives. Windows sees all of them just fine. But the openSUSE 11.2 install DVD can't see any partitions on sda, sdb, sdc or sdd. It however says I still have two RAID logical drives, which I don't. I'd really like to install openSUSE 11.2, but I want it to recognize my Windows partitions, if for no other reason that to see my MP3 collection, my eBooks, etc.

Ubuntu :: Using Secondary Partitions And HDD

Aug 28, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on an old HP Pavilion 710 PC, dual-booting with WinXP. I followed instructions and successfully partitioned my primary hard drive, and installed Ubuntu just fine (I think--everything seems to work, anyway).

Here's my partition setup:



The secondary disk is strangely set up for unrelated reasons, and I haven't done anything to it since moving to Ubuntu. My plan is to keep most of my data on that disk, and use the primary disk for system files and applications, but I don't yet understand how Ubuntu decides where to keep things, so I haven't done anything with that disk yet.

Here are my questions:

1. I want to run a MySQL database locally, to test a php/MySQL web site I'm developing. I thought it would be a good idea to set aside a partition just for the database, which is what /dev/sda7 is supposed to be; but I have no idea how to make Ubuntu or MySQL use that partition. (I'm also brand spanking new to MySQL, or I'd probably know.) How do I do that?

2. It occurs to me now that I ought to put the database on my secondary hard drive, which is much bigger and faster than the primary. If the answer to #1 doesn't tell me, how do I do that?

3. My home directory is on /dev/sda right now. Can I move my data files to /dev/sdb without moving the whole home directory? Or must I move everything and keep it all together in one directory?

Ubuntu :: One Of Partitions Has Disappeared

Nov 9, 2010

I currently have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 in my computer, and I was booting normally with grub until last night. I tried to install Adobe Photoshop into Windows and after that I went on to reboot my system. When it restarted, grub showed a message like this:

error: no such partition
grub rescue>

I've followed some advice regarding this issue and I got this running the bash script (boot_info_script0555.sh) mentioned in some related posts. Here is my RESULTS.txt output. After a quick view, I think the biggest problem is that one of my Linux partitions has disappeared, and I don't know how to recover it.

Ubuntu :: Can't Access Other Partitions

Dec 31, 2010

I am currently using Xubuntu after i used Ubuntu and Kubuntu. So far, i'm preferring it over both. The only problem is I can't access my other partitions. I have my Windows partition and another partition just for storage and such, and I can't access it. I can't even see them using the default File Manager of Xubuntu. I've downloaded Dolphin to try and somehow work it out, and i do see them now but i still can't access them.

Xubuntu 10.10, if it means anything. Also, I do have Xubuntu on a separate partition alone.

Ubuntu shows 120ish gig for its portion which is as I set it up.
