Fedora :: Resizing Partition To Create Another File System On Free Space?

Dec 7, 2009

I have decided that my partition table does not meet my needs Barrymore, and I want to shrink the "/" partition by 80GB, and then create another file system on that space. I did some research on-line, and I'm not sure which way is the easiest and more secure way to perform the change with out putting the "/" file system on risk.

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)}]

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):

Ubuntu :: GParted - Allocate All Of Space Only To W7 And One OS?

Mar 16, 2010

I have a messed up system, or so I think. I have all sorts of partition issues that I just don't understand. I may have installed Ubuntu multipe times (GRUB show 5+ copys) along side my copy of W7. GParted show two Unused partition spaces, one massive on that it cant read completely (ntfs), a LinuxSwap, something called (ext4) and something called (extended).

What is going on? I recently deleted a virtual machine, but it looked like this even before this. How can I allocate all of my space only to W7 and one Ubuntu OS? Pic of GParted is attached.

General :: Allocate Limited SSD Space In LVM For Optimal Performance?

Jan 20, 2011

I just got a new SSD, and I'm looking for advice on how best to incorporate it into my existing LVM setup. I have the following logical volumes (mounted at the obvious places):


I've got 108.26g in the physical volumes associated with the new SSD. I'm going to use pvmove to migrate some of these LVs to the SSD. The question is, which LVs to move?

The machine in question is basically a home workstation. I do some light development (source code lives in home), run some very low-load server processes (apache, etc.), and do a bit of image and video editing from time to time. I run Gentoo on x86 if that makes a difference.

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.

Ubuntu :: Incorrect File System Space Reported By System Monitor?

Apr 3, 2011

In System Monitor, on the File Systems tab, the "Total", "Available" and "Used" columns don't seem to add up, and the "Used" percentage doesn't seem correct either.

My config:
/dev/sda1 = 80 GB SSD drive, / partition.
/dev/sdb1 = 50 GB FAT32 partition of an external 500 GB USB hard disk.
/dev/sdb2 = remainder of the 500 GB USB hard disk encrypted using luks.

Screenshot: The /dev/sda1 figures don't really add up well, but they're close at least (how you get "50% Used" from any of those figures I don't know!).

However, for /dev/sdb2, they're miles off:
"Free" = 146.2 GiB
"Total" = 409.7 GiB
"Available" = 125.4 GiB
"Used" = 263.5 GiB

General :: File System Is Out Of Space

Feb 24, 2010

i just installed Fedora 12 (via vbox 3.1.4). stupidly i started with 8G and, of course, ran out of space on the / filesystem. i added 8G to the drive which now shows as 17G.based on the below outputs, it looks like i have 8G more space available on the drive. based on reading other posts it looks like i need to use parted to increase the size but not sure how to do that.

General :: Automating USB Drive Configuration Of Partition Table, Partition And File System

Jan 26, 2011

I have tried to automate the configuration of a usb drive with not much success.

The problem that I have is that I have a large amount of usb drives that have a partition table of type "loop" and I need to change them to "msdos". The size of the drives vary and I need to use FAT32 or FAT16 file system.

I've tried various partitioning commands and gui applications but cant find one that I can give a one line command to to set the partition table, maximum partition size and file system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade 10.04 To 11.04 - "Allocate Drive Space" Screen

Apr 30, 2011

On the Ubuntu website, they have a screenshot of installing 11.04 from 10.04. The options are: Install 11.04 alongside 10.04, Upgrade 10.04 to 11.04, Erase 10.04 and reinstall, Something else. Erase 10.04 and reinstall is the option I want, but that is not an option when I actually try to install it. The installer detected that I have Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows XP, and gave me the following options: Install 11.04 alongside both, Erase both OSes and install 11.04, Something else. I want to install 11.04 over 10.04 and leave Windows alone. I guess I have to do the partition stuff, but I don't want to screw anything up. Here's how my partitions are currently set up.

/dev/sda1 ntfs 54303MB
/dev/sda3 ext3 19567MB
/dev/sda5 swap 896MB
/dev/sda2 fat32 5248MB

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - No Disks At "Allocate Drive Space"

I'm a Linux newbie but familiar with computers in general. I can install 9.4 64 bit (but no network to update from), but 10.4 and 10.10 both fail -- I cannot get the Allocate drive space screen to list the available drives. Just a blank panel. The drive is listed in the Boot loader panel. The LiveCD works. Disk utility and Gparted are both available. At one point I even managed to mount the 9.4 file system on the LiveCD, I think using "sudo mount"

Ubuntu :: Dd - Device Copy.... Low File System Space?

Mar 17, 2011

So I wanted to copy a copy-prod disk and decided to try dd after reading some information about it. after running dd for about a minute, I got a warning that I was low on disk space. I stopped dd and found I had only 200 MB left of 200 GB free space (originally having over 220 free). I deleted the 1/2 finished backups but cannot find the data which was written to the drive. It is hard to think that that much data could be written with my slow pc in under one are the commands I performed if that helps locate the data:

dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/mnt/disk/home/mark/pccheck.iso
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/pccheck.iso
sudo dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/pccheck2.iso

General :: Find And Decrease File System Space For RAC Servers?

Dec 29, 2010

We have recently built some RAC (OS:RHEL55) servers and after the Oracle guys have installed their application, somehow the directory / is using the maximum space. I contacted the Oracle team & they say that their RAC installation doesn't create any files in the / directory. This is the o/p of '/' directory file system:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/datavg-vol2 498M 382M 62M 88% /

Also, when I checked the file sizes, I found that the following files were taking more space:

-rw------ 1 root root 17M Nov1 base.linked


I don't know what these files are doing there, when I did a cat and cheked, I found the files containing this data:


stem_dbusd_var_run_t...and some stuff like this Unable to decide whether or not to remove these files. Also, is there any way to find out what files are taking more space and whether they can be deleted or not? in order to free up some space in the / direcoty. As there are 10 RACs that we've build, I got to do something to fix this for all of the 10 servers.
