Ubuntu :: Delete Snow Leopard Partition - Format Swap Disk Partition To Something Else

Feb 23, 2011

I had a drive with a partition layout like so:

~50gig Windows 7 - NTFS
~100gig Ubuntu - EXT3
~100gig Snow Leopard - HFS+
~100gig Extended Partition
-- ~100gig Swap Disk - exFat

I wanted to delete the Snow Leopard partition and format the Swap Disk partition to something else. exFat was causing major file size bloat on small files. QT sdk bloated to like 11 gigs or something ridiculous like that. Anyways, I loaded up an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS live cd and gparted then deleted the Snow Leopard partition. Gparted said "Mission Accomplished" and tried to rescan the drive, but never found it. At this point I restarted the computer, a dell laptop, which didn't boot with an unable to find a bootable device error. The ubuntu live cd doesn't see the drive anymore. gparted scans for drives indefinitely and fdisk -l has no output.

Security :: Encrypt Swap Disk Partition?

Apr 5, 2011

Is it better to use:

Code: -c aes-cbc-essiv -y -s 512 Or:
Code: -c aes-xts-plain -y -s 512

I've never encrypted a disk before; I'm following the Arch wiki (I'm a newbie, basically). Should I try and encrypt my swap partition (I've got 512 MB RAM, 1 GB swap)? Ideally, I'd like to make it so it's not feasible for someone (even a very skilled someone) to access my files (and system -- I'm encrypting /), but still make it fairly fast and usable for day-to-day operations. If it matters any, I'm using JFS.

General :: Swap Partition To The Back Of The Disk By Default?

Sep 8, 2011

As far as I know hard drives are faster at the beginning of the disk. If this is true, why does Ubuntu put the swap partition to the back of the disk by default?

Ubuntu :: Disk In Use Error When Attempting To Format An Empty Partition?

Sep 8, 2010

Just ran into a problem involving mdadm, a disk which had been in a raid array, and an attempt to reformat. Basically, I went to reformat some partitions which had been in raid, and one of them threw the error andy@andy-desktop:~$ sudo mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb5 mke2fs 1.41.11 (14-Mar-2010) /dev/sdb5 is apparently in use by the system; will not make a filesystem here! An attempt to umount revealed it was not mounted. lvdisplay and fuser did not reveal anything to me, so I just started looking around. I was graphically navigating /dev and noticed a /dev/md_d0 which did not look like /dev/md_d1 etc (it was missing a little arrow). I had not seen this notation before (my raid was md0), but figured it couldn't hurt to try stopping it.

andy@andy-desktop:~$ sudo mdadm --detail /dev/md_d0
mdadm: md device /dev/md_d0 does not appear to be active.
andy@andy-desktop:~$ sudo mdadm --stop /dev/md_d0
mdadm: stopped /dev/md_d0

After this, the partition formatted fine! I saw a lot of instructions including zeroing the partition and removing a logical volume, but the above was the only thing which worked for me! Just posted it in case it helps someone else. I know I've not been terribly technical!

Ubuntu Installation :: Grow Boot Sector. Delete Swap Partition. Can't Boot Afterwards.

Mar 7, 2010

I'm running 9.10 off of a 4 GiB CF card. I keep running into space issues with updates, so I purchased an 8 GiB replacement card. I've cloned the 4 GiB card to a .IMG file using DD.I've then copied the 4 GiB image back to the 8 GiB card using the Ubuntu startup disk creator program. Once done, I'm able to properly boot off of the new 8 GiB clone.Unfortunately, the clone ends up with 3.67 GiB of unallocated space at the end *see attached). I tried deleting the "extended" partition that the swap is located at after booting from a Live CD and the system was unable to boot after this. I was thinking that I would delete the swap entirely and create a swap file after I merged the existing partitions, but I was unable to do this.

best way to do this (e.g. get one large 8 GiB partition with my old image on it)? I still have the original untouched 4 GiB card and also have an external CF drive if I need to redo the cloning. I've also used Clonezilla before, so perhaps there's a way to do this that allow me to grow the image as it's being cloned.

General :: Osx - NFS Share From OS X Snow Leopard To Ubuntu

Sep 1, 2010

I'm trying to share a some files on a Mac running Snow Leopard with a Ubuntu Linux.

The mount request gets a "permission denied", and a client system log contains "host xx requires a stronger authentication"

I've seen this problem referred to elsewhere, but no solution. This is a hack on a home network, and I really do want to "just do it" and damn the security flaws.

Hardware :: Invalid Partition Table For Swap Partition That Moved With Gparted?

Feb 8, 2010

I was reading another thread about someone with a bad partition table and I decided to join this forum. I'm not going to take any drastic actions with the partition (/dev/sda3) in question. I am going to wait for instructions on what to do first. I am not very good with Linux and need some hand holding. System: DELL 4550 Dual-Booted with XP and Ubuntu. Works OK, just no swap. Well, here's what I did: I deleted a partition for Windows XP Pro because it was a trial, and it ran out. I then decided to slide the swap partition for the Ubuntu Linux that I dual-boot into over. (If this was successful, I was going to try expanding the root partition to take up the unused space.) I used Gparted on a CD to do this, as I figured it was safe to do.

I now cannot mount the swap space at bootup (and have to go into a backup version of the OS), although I can use Gparted in Linux to execute the "swapon" command, and it appears that it worked because I now see "swapoff" as an option on the context menu. (I actually don't even need a swap partition, except to hibernate.) If I highlight the swap partition and click on "Drive" on Gparted's menu bar and select "Create Partition Table", it will erase all data on /dev/sda, so how do I fix the bad partition table non-destructively?

Debian Installation :: Wiped Windows Partition With Swap And LVM Partition

Jan 17, 2015

I am having issues with Grub 2 after installing Debian 7.8.0.The computer is a HP Pavilion 500-307nb. I made the original harddrive /dev/sdb and inserted a Samsung Evo 840 as /dev/sda. From the original hard drive (/dev/sdb), I wiped the windows partition, but left all other partitions unchanged (in case I would ever want to recover the desktop to its original state). I replaced the wiped windows partition with a swap partition and an LVM partition.These are my hard drive partitions:

/dev/sda (Samsung Evo 840)

Number Start End Size File system Name Flags
1 1049kB 3146kB 2097kB primary bios_grub
2 3146kB 944MB 941MB ext4 boot
3 944MB 94.4GB 93.4GB host lvm
4 94.4GB 1000GB 906GB guests lvm


The partition /dev/sda3 has 2 logical volumes with filesystem ext4 that I mount to / and /home.The partition /dev/sda2 is mounted to /boot..When I install like this, Debian installs fine, however Grub2 is not installed correctly.Debian installs grub-pc which seems not able to boot the gpt partition. So I boot the Debian CD in rescue mode and execute:

mount /dev/sda2 /boot
aptitude purge grub-pc
aptitude -y install grub-efi

After rebooting, I come in the grub rescue shell, which says: error: no such device: 986f2176--4a4b-4222-83b9-8636a034b3c7.

When I then enter in the grub rescue shell:
set boot=(hd0,gpt2)
set prefix=(hd0,gpt2)/grub
insmod normal

Grub and Debian start up correctly.why can Grub not start up automatically correctly? Where does the UUID 986f2176--4a4b-4222-83b9-8636a034b3c7 come from? I have reinstalled Grub several times, I have reinstall Debian several times, I have even wiped all partitions from /dev/sda and recreated a new gpt table with parted and manually set the partitions in parted. Still on each reinstallation, Grub fails because it cannot find exactly the same UUID. Since this UUID is always the same, it must be stored somewhere, but it cannot be the partitions, I have wiped them and the partition table several times.

I did though a firmware update of the Samsung Evo 840 before reinstallation, could this be a cause?Also the problem is not in grub.cfg. Grub starts correctly if I enter the commands above in the grub rescue screen and the UUID value does not appear there.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Starting Back Up Into OS X Snow Leopard?

May 29, 2010

I think I may have hastily installed Ubuntu on sister's Intel iMac. I'm not much of a techie and she'd asked me to make a dual boot system. I burned the ISO file and ran Boot Camp on her iMac and seemingly everything went through properly. However, upon restarting the system, I get a DOS-like page showing the boot options. Switching to 64-bit OS X resulted in a failed boot as did the option for 32-bit OS X. I'm in a bind as she needs to get back into OS X to work on her project.

Hey there. Currently my Toshiba laptop is dual-booted with windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 and I think I may try and triple-boot it with Snow Leopard. I'm not too familiar at all with hackintoshes so, how should I go about configuring a partition for the OS?

Also: is there any known problems running windows and a mackintosh OS?

If someone can give me some insight here I can also provide my computer's specs.

Ubuntu Networking :: Printer Sharing With Windows 7 And Snow Leopard

Jun 26, 2010

I installed it on a desktop today to try it out. So far I'm loving it and have gotten everything to work except for one thing:

There's a printer connected to it (HP PSC 1600), and I'd like the other computers on the network to be able to print to that computer. The other computers are running Windows 7, and one is running Snow Leopard.

When I plugged in the printer, Ubuntu recognized it almost immediately and installed it. Wonderful! I then went ahead and set it to be Shared, and hoped for the best. Neither the Windows machine or the OS X machine could find the printer...even after I pointed them directly at what I thought was the CUPS address (\mycomputername:631). To make matters even more confusing, I was able to set up shared folders and have the other computers be able to view them.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get Lucid System To See Snow Leopard / Solve That?

Oct 11, 2010

I'm unable to get my Ubuntu 10.04LTS to see my Mac 10.6.4 machine.

I've got Samba and AFP enabled under the Mac file sharing preferences.

Attempt1: From Ubuntu, I can see my Mac under Network>Places, but I'm unable to mount the location.

Attempt2: In Ubuntu, I went to Places>Connect to Server and entered the following:
Service: Windows Share
Server: [name of my mac]
Share: [name of my shared folder]
User Name: [username]
Domain Name: WORKGROUP

With this entered, I was able to get as far as being prompted for my password, but was still unable to connect.

Attempt3: I followed the same steps above, but left Domain Name blank. Still nothing.

Are there any docs out there for the correct steps? I can only find posts on getting Mac to see Ubuntu, but not the other way around.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Snow Leopard OSX With 10.10 Netbook

Dec 10, 2010

Perhaps I should have put this in the apple users section, but I am not an apple user. I am using a MSI WIND U100 running OSX snow leopard retail (GUID/GPT - boots using Chameleon).

I've been feeling guilty preaching open source while not currently practising what I preach so finally downloaded ubuntu 10.10 (netbook version) and using unetbootin I made the ISO bootable on an external USB drive.

I already had an empty 40gb partition which I'd intended to dual boot linux on so I went ahead and booted from the external and installed ubuntu. During the install I divided up the 40GB with 3GB for swap and 37GB as ext4 mount point /

Anyway, it installed and rebooted and loaded ubuntu fine using the default option in the auto installed GRUB. However, although the menu show my OSX it does not boot (ARGH!). When selected there is disk activity for a few seconds and then nothing, just blank screen.

I'm praying that I just need to tinker with grub or something to get my OSX back...

(PS> the [URL] forums have loads of info on dual/triple booting these hackintosh netbooks but mostly involving windows XP or windows 7 rather than ubuntu and also mostly about earlier OSX varieties which booted onto MBR partitions rather that GPT.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Can't Boot Into Snow Leopard Install Disc

I cannot get into disc utility or anything. It almost seems like the computer doesn't know how to handle the disc. I did not use Refit and the only change I made to the boot loader was blessing the ubuntu partition.
