a client brought in an 160GB external HDD and wanted to get the files off it, there appeared to be no partitions on the disk but i thought it may have been formatted to use the whole disk. I tried to mount it as the various FS types the client thought it may have been to no avail.
I ran testdisk on it which told me that it previously had a mac partition table and a 210GB partition on it (which is larger than the disk) could anyone enlighten me as to whether or not this is even possible, and if so how could i retrieve the data?
I want to configure Name Server i.e., DNS to my red hat linux box in a production enviromnt.The ram is 2 GB and Hard Disk size is 200 GB. How much space should I give /var, /usr, /boot, /root and home partition. May be I am wrong in partition point of view while installing fresh red hat but to install for home purpose and server end is different. So kindly guide me the hard disk partition size to ready it for name server.
im installing ubuntu and after I reach the partioning portion there's a prompt that says "before you select a new partition size, any previous changes have to be written to disk. you cannot undo this operation.Please note that the resize operation may take a long time.
Go Back Continue
after i click continue there's a prompt again saying "too small size" ok
then after i click ok it will go back to the partioning portion again.
im dual booting xp and ubuntu and there's a 30 gb on my drive C 16.4G is still unused.
I want to add Fedora 14 to my triplecore 3GB RAM computer which has windows, Fedora 12 & ubuntu installed. What are the recommendation (e.g. size) for harddisk partition allocation? I can reuse the swap partition, can't I? Should I install Fedora 14 to a single partition (ie. /)? Should I use only ext4?
The font size on Chromium for the URL and tabs is *far* too small. I went into the "Under the Hood" settings, but to no avail. How can I make this bigger? [URL] Also, the bookmarks bar seem to be inheriting system fonts, but it looks like that size is hard coded too. I love chromium but I need some accessibility here.
i was using eclipse in windows 7, th fonts are small so I can see the code good. But I want to use in Ubuntu so I setup. But here the font size is huge and windows are taking more space and I am unable to code.How to reduce the overall font size and make it small?
Does anyone know how to change the font size of the user interface elements of the chromium/chrome browser? I've searched around for a solution but only come up with how to change the font size of viewed sites. Just to be clear, I want to increase the font size of the tabs headings, bookmark menu etc, not the font size of the sites I'm viewing...Using chromium on lucid...
I installed "Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - the Lucid Lynx" Amd_64 version on my dell vostro 1015. My screen resoultion is set to 1366*768(16.9) by default because the font size on web pages looks too small. I am not able to understand if it is font size too small or is it a resolution set too high. I am trying to fix this because I find very difficult to read web pages specifically. I tried to zoom in on firefox, but that is not permanent solution.
I want to decrease my screen resolution. I opened drop down and I find following:
None of the above resolution suits my laptop. The monitor type identified by Ubuntu says Laptop Monitor.
I am running openSUSE 11.4 KDE 64bit. I found the default font in YAST, for example, in Bootloader and Software Management, is about 8-9 points which is too small to read. Why on earth does openSUSE set a tiny font size as default?
I did try Configure Desktop >Application Appearance, etc. as well as qtconfig in the terminal but these seem not to increase the font size to 12-14 points.
I'd like to know if anybody knows if is there a any small hardware board (I think non i386 architecture, maybe mips or arm) board suitable for using for linux routing systems (routing features + iptables).For example an small board with at least two ethernet interfaces capable to run an update version of Linux.May be something similar to microtik routerboards, but to run Linux within.
I'm looking for a programmable way to open an editor with a small window size. For example 60 columns and 3 lines. So I need an editor that can take its initial window size from command line args or environment variables, or possibly from an initial command that can be given on the command line.I've looked at documentation and experimented with gedit, gvim (and vi & vim), and nano and I don't think any of them can be controlled this way. Vi and its friends have a "window" option and also a "resize" command, both of which are described as setting the number of rows, but they don't change the graphical window size they just change the number of rows displayed in the window.
I am have upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 in my laptop. After performing the reboot, the shell/console resolution went very high and the font size went too small. How to regain the old console shell resolution as in 9.04. I require this urgently as my laptop suffers the white screen problem. Switching between Ctrl+Alt+F6 and Ctrl+Alt+F7 I could get back the screen as the change in the resolution switches off and on the screen, so that I can negotiate with the white screen problem.
i am running now Windows 7 on a virtual machine.the windows of the VM remains small.when i resize the windows,, the desktop window of windows 7 remains the same size.is that normall?i would like to have a reasaneble windows size of the VM

I've created a custom pclinunx os minime remaster for a friend. The only thing it lacks is a CD burning program. The problem is that I'm on dialup and can't use synaptic to install K3b. I don't know if I have the dev tools needed to compile it. Can you recommend me a light CD burner app with small size and few dependencies?
I'll get to the point straight away... I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 on a HD that already has Win 7 on it.I left out 15.52 GB of space just to install Opensuse but when I select that partition (which of course is empty) and tell YaST2 to install OpenSuse there it tells me there isn't enough space. Is 15 GB not enough!?inimum requirements where supposed to be 3GB I think...S this is how the disk is devided... Primary partition of 50GB for win 7, 400 of Logic partition for Programs, and supposedly 15GB for OpenSuse...
I have a small project that I am trying to do for my job to help us out. Basically, I need to make a tool that lets me view all the sectors of a hard drive in hexadecimal format to make sure they are all zero after a low-level format. I need it to be very minimal, and display the data in a way that I can scroll down and skim through the sectors. Doesn't have to be pretty, just functional.I need it to do more things down the road, but this is the first hurdle I need to overcome. I would like to create a GUI interface so it looks nice, but first I am only concerned with the sector viewing function. I am not entirely sure where I should start.
I see there is a tool called dd I could use to read the hard drive and I am wondering if I need to use that, or if I can just open /dev/hda as a file and be able to view all the sectors that way.Also, just to clarify, I am wanting to write this tool for linux,specifically DSL. I need it to be a very small distribution that can be loaded quickly from a usb drive, cd, or over the network with PXE.
i am running ubuntu 10.10 and windows7 on a asus eee 1015. currently i have two partitions: 80GB for windows (NTFS) and 160Gb for Ubuntu (ext4).
I want to:
- shrink the windows partition (easy, no worries);
- Shrink the ubuntu partition
- join the space thus created in a third partition that i can use for storage, media etc accessible by both windows and ubuntu
- i could not manage to get gparted live to run off USB stick (i get the unable to find medium.... error)
- even if i would get gparted to work and i succeed in shrinking the ubuntu partition as well, the two spaces reclaimed will be divided by the ubuntu partition, which means they cannot be joined in a third partition.
so here is what i want to do:
- shrink windows and create a new partition;
- format this new partition as ext4;
- somehow "clone" the data on my current ubuntu root into the new partition;
- format the current root as NTFS and use it as the storage partition
i am aware this may mean i would have to re-set grub etc but would the cloning of the partition be possible? that i would need to clone data from a 160G partition into a 40G partition.
BY THE WAY - forgot to mention that i have tried to load clonezilla off an USB drive and i get the same error: "unable to find medium..."
I've read this thread: linuxforums.org/forum/ubuntu-linux/114705-want-remove-linux-mint.html.Can I follow the procedure that daark.child has outlined?
1. Boot from a small live CD like partedmagic and delete Linux partition. 2. Free space into NTFS with the same small live CD. 3. Remove GRUB by booting from supergrub disk and choosing the option to remove GRUB.
I don't have my Windows Installation CD with me, so can I remove Linux Mint just by following these steps?
I've got a server that needs more space. To achieve this we added space (by extending the VMware disk attached to it).Normally this isn't an issue, because we just add an new partition and LVM it from there, but this host predates our deployment of LVM everywhere.
Our current theory is that the unallocated sectors can not be assigned because they aren't part of the extended partition, and thus ... we go in a circle.So what i believe the way forward is to extend sda4 so that i can then create an sda10 inside of it. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this? I was thinking gparted may do the trick ... but being a server i'm in runlevel3, with no X...
I am relatively new to Linux and Opensuse. I created the / root partition and now it is growing and maxing out. I have partitioner available to me but how do I change the partition size when the root partition is mounted. Do I login as root and then umount or modify fstab and restart and change from command line or do I format and reinstall everything? I have room to expand but not sure how to manage this?
