OpenSUSE Install :: Suse11.4 - Clear Up A Free Space In HD To Install Win7 ?

Jul 9, 2011

Just installed and started to use the suse11.4 two weeks ago when my Win7 broke down. Now I got a new Win7 recovery disc from my laptop manufacturer, and want to install a Win7 accompanying with the suse11.4.

My question is how to clear up a free space in HD to install win7? Currently, I have 3 partitions that are sda1, sda2 and sda3 with space 2G(swap), 20G(root) and 270G(home) respectively. I want to free up half space from sda3 to install Win7, how to do it without delete the data on it? One weird thing is that my HD totally is 320G, but when I installed SUSE, only 300G was usable and the other 20G is missing until now. The fdisk -l command info. is showed below:

OpenSUSE Install :: Free Space On Hard Disc?

Sep 13, 2010

I'm starting to push the limit of my /home directory. My machine is Linux/Windows dual-boot. I need to keep Windows as the machine is not "officially" mine, and so might need to go back at some point to a Windows user. All my normal Windows access is via VirtualBox. I have made my Windows partitions as small as possible, and now have an empty D partition as follows:

It's the D* partition that I would like to add to my home directory. Is there an easy way of doing this, or am I looking at a complete re-install of openSUSE?

OpenSUSE Install :: Partition Resizing - Free Space Not Available

Dec 16, 2010

I have two 250 GB drives setup with hardware RAID 1. I had on sda and sdb: 20 GB swap, 20 GB /, 198 GB /srv all was good until I started to run out of space on 20 GB /. So I booted the server with Suse 11.3 live cd and reduced the size of 20 GB swap to 10 GB and 198 GB /srv to 150 GB on sda and sdb.

All good so far, then tried to increase 20 GB / to 60 GB, but the Partition setup says the Max Size can be 20 GB, I have checked and I have 42.88 GB of Unpartitioned space. I have rescanned, rebooted, Server is still running fine by the way, but the 42.88 GB of free space is not made available for the expansion of 20 GB /.

General :: 'clear Out' All The Old/cached Crap From RAM/SWAP To Free Up Space?

Jul 21, 2010

Closest analogy I can compare what I want to, is like the `sync` command, which writes out all stuff in the disk buffers, freeing the buffers.Instead of disk buffers, I want to 'clean out' my RAM and SWAP of any/all junk that's accumulated in there over the time my PC has been up. I've long wondered about this, but never asked, though I recall searching around several times..When I first boot it cold and log in, the memory usage bar on my desktop is near zero, and the swap is empty. But after a week or 2 or 3 or more of uptime, and with Firefox always running with a dozen tabs or so at any given time, I end up with all the memory full or 'filled with cached stuff', and the swap space is filled to capacity.Curiousity: I blame Firefox for leaking memory, but even if that's still the case today (historically it was) can this all be blamed on Firefox? Or what-all causes this, besides Firefox- just..Everything?

Here's current stats:


sasha@reactor: uptime
21:21:42 up 30 days, 10:07, 3 users, load average: 0.02, 0.05, 0.01
sasha@reactor: free
total used free shared buffers cached


So, 3.8 of 4 Gib of RAM is occupied, and the 1 Gib swap space is jammed full 100%. This must slow things down to some degree, yes? I mean, the kernel does have to keep track of this, right?Of course closing all the applications doesn't make a difference (not an appreciable one anyhow) and the only way I have found to start fresh is to reboot.

Ubuntu Installation :: Win7 Partition Resizing To Free Up Space

Feb 26, 2011

Some months ago I decided to give a chance to this 'Linux thing'. However, being uncertain of the usefulness and friendliness of it all, I decided to keep my Windows 7 partition untouched and just make a 30 Gb partition to "try out" Linux. As it turns out, it's been some 2 months since I last booted Windows and was now wondering if there's a way to "steal" some space from that W7 partition and add it to my Ubuntu one without messing up files. Some kind of major defragmentation, leaving an empty part of the disk which I could "attach" to my Ubuntu partition. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS version.

OpenSUSE Install :: GRUB ( Comes In Suse11.2 DVD ) Compatible With Windows 7?

May 13, 2010

Recently, I downloaded openSUSE 11.2 DVD.I read here (Partitioning/Install Guide) that GRUB may not dual boot correctly with windows: It should be said that grub does not always get the settings to boot Windows quite correct and you may later have to adjust the /boot/grub/menu.lst file in your Linux installation

Is it true also for the openSuse version (11.2) that I downloaded? Please refer to Windows 7.

OpenSUSE Install :: Update Suse11.0 To 11.3 On Older Laptop?

Jan 5, 2011

My laptop is a Medion MD 96970 (bought at Aldi in September 2008) with

- graphic card nVidia GeForce 9300M G
- processor Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5750 @ 2.00GHz
- 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller
- 3GB RAM and 300 GB memory

1) Originally, my laptop came with Windows Vista. Then I got a SUSE linux 11.0 CD, let it make a partition and installed Suse 11.0. Since Suse11.0 isn't updated any further I would like to change to Suse 11.3 (or whatever is newer). How should I proceed? (I can't find my old Windows Vista CDs and would like to KEEP THE PARTITION, thus formating all isn't an option)

2) In order to make a backup I bought a portable hard drive from iomega (USB 2.0). Then I noticed that it is formated in NTFS. SUSE 11.0 doesn't seem to like it --- what should I do? Can I reformat it somehow?

3) Suse 11.0 doesn't like my sound card. Thus I couldn't Skype or listen to music --- do you know if this problem is solved under Suse 11.3?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Not Recognizing Free Space On Install?

Nov 13, 2010

I had ubuntu 8.10 installed, but support was no longer offered - I wasn't able to upgrade software etc. I decided to upgrade to 10.04 today. I made the boot disk as normal, but when I went to install it I got the message "This computer has no operating systems installed". The only options were to wipe the entire hard drive or create my own partitions.

I have Windows Vista installed, so I deleted the partition which had ubuntu 8.10 (and also the swap file partition) so I now have free space on the computer. However, in Vista this shows up as an extended partition with Dell MediaDirect.

When I go back to the 10.04 installer, it still does not recognize my Vista installation, and only gives me the option of wiping the HDD. From googling and searching these forums, it appears as though the problem is that the free space and the Dell MediaDirect partitions overlap and this is why the free space is not recognized by ubuntu.

Fedora Installation :: LVM For Dual Boot Moblin Install - No Free Space

Jun 17, 2009

I've got Fedora 11 working fine on an HP Mini 2140 netbook. (Wireless works after enabling the rpmfusion repo and installing the broadcom-wl driver.) Now I want to try to put Moblin 2.0 on the netbook as a dual boot.

Unfortunately the Moblin installer (Anaconda? Looks like it.) reports that there's no free space on the / volume. It looks like what's going on is that Fedora 11 created two partitions: /boot and /; and the / partition is LVM and uses all the rest of the available space on the hard drive.

I want to continue using Fedora 11's bootloader for any dual boot. So, basic question #1: Is the solution to create another partition for the Moblin install, or to resize the existing / LV in the existing LV group, and then create another LV for the Moblin install? In other words, can I install another OS on a second LV in the same LVG?

OpenSUSE Install :: Revert To Windows Bootloader To Install Win7 SP1?

Feb 25, 2011

Currently I am running a dual boot with Windows 7 and openSUSE 11.3. Windows has two partitions, one for the system partition and another for the OS. I have 3 Linux partitions (swap, root, and home). Obviously I am running GRUB to boot, but this seems to be impacting my ability to install Windows 7 SP1. I would like to revert back to the Windows boot loader, install the Service Pack, and then revert back to GRUB. How do I do this?

OpenSUSE Install :: Clear Terminal When Booting And Logging Out?

Dec 3, 2010

I've noticed on other Linux distributions that after boot up and logging off the console screen clears and provides basic information like the Linux distribution and then under it the login prompt. How can I do this for openSUSE 11.3?After I install or reboot I still have all the boot up stuff shown and when I logout after performing some work my commands are still shown. I boot the system to runlevel 3 and barely use the GUI but would like the screen to clear everything after boot up and logging out.

OpenSUSE Install :: KDM Black Screen - Need To Clear All Config Files

Apr 19, 2011

No more than 15 hours after a breezy installation and setup I somehow managed to stop the desktop manager from displaying. Once you boot into Suse, the loading bar goes across, a white flash, then a blank screen forever. I figured it was KDM once I booted into x11safemode and tried to boot the desktop manager, it recreated the situation.

I've tried un-installing and installing KDM again, however it seems to reuse the same config file. I'm thinking about deleting the config file mentioned, but I'm not sure what will happen when I install the desktop manager, if there's any setting up to get it to work with my setup, or even if that will fix the situation.

Server :: Use System Monitor Via A VNC Connection The Free Disk Space Value Is 20GB Free On The Same Volume

May 18, 2011

I've got a question on free disk space. I'm currently running CentOS 5.5 on in Xenserver virtual environment. We've had an issue with disk space. My question is as follows: - from a ssh connection i run df -h this gives the value of 90% used leaving me with 9GB. If I use system monitor via a VNC connection the free disk space value is 20GB free on the same volume. Which one is correct? I do use SNMP to monitor the same volume and should alert me when < 10% is free I know this works as I set the alert threshold to < 90% I get an alert.

OpenSUSE Install :: No More Peaceful Coexistence Of Win7?

Dec 24, 2009

If I understand correctly, there is no more "Install Linux as a second OS, and Windows will run as it is. Linux won't disturb it". If Grub is installed on MBR, Windows 7 will not install service pack.

If the MBR is left untouched during the installation of Linux, the active flag has to be switched from Windows's partition to Linux's partition. This again will prohibit Windows 7 from installing a service pack. Thus installing Linux as a second OS and giving the computer to somebody who is not expert in partitioning and booting will lead to trouble if Windows is regularly used. Is this correct, and is there a solution as to not creating worries for the Windows users by installing Linux?

I'm used to be a Ubuntu user at first,and using its Grub loader so far.Several moths later,I just find that may be Opensuse is another good choice.So I installed Opensuse 11.3 without grub using KDE Livecd version because it cant find the Ubuntu partition while the install process,but the install application can find Win7 installed in my laptop.Soon I logined to Ubuntu and Updated the grub settings in Ubuntu.This grub program in Ubuntu found that there's a Opensuse 11.3 on a partition. So I can login to SUSE by Ubuntu's Grub.But Now I want to use SUSE its own Grub.So what should I do to change my default Grub Loader from Ubuntu's to SUSE's?
