I got back to my laptop after dinner and found a blank screen with one line of text saying something about running out of swap space - I tried all kinds of key combinations but nothing worked to bring the desktop back - eventually I pressed and held the power button to shut it down - I suppose this is Ubuntu's version of the "blue screen of death"?I went to System - Disk Utility to make a 2GB free space right after the swap space. Then I tried to make that 2GB free space a swap space partition but it came back with an error
I am very much new user of ubuntu and hardly know anything about linux. What is swap memory? I have dual boot system with windows7 and ubuntu 9.04. My hard disk size is 320GB and RAM is 4GB. Currently swap memory size is 4.3GB. Can I increase swap size? Will it have any advantage? How to do that?
Need to increase swap size, currently on LVM2, does we can extended the lvm swap presented or need to create a new one. Which one is recomnded new lvm for swap or extend the lvm already exist ? Below are the swap exists in my server./dev/MU_PROJ/lv_SWAP swap swap pri=42 0 0
Wubi doesn't let me set the swap file size, so on installation it only creates a swap file of a few hundred megabytes. Because of this, i cannot hibernate my netbook (eeePC 1005HA), which has 2 GB of RAM.
Creating a 2 GB swap file alongside of the original one using the tutorial here did work, but hibernate doesn't seem to work with it. For this reason i thought increasing the original swap's size instead of creating more would be a way to solve my problem.
My laptop has 2Gb of ram, 4Gb of swap, 40Gb hdd and an intel pentium 1.40GHz cpu, even when compiling stuff or maxing out everything the 4Gb of swap is never touched, with such a small hdd I'd like to reduce the swap to about 2Gb (just in case) to free up some space, does anyone know what commands/tools are available to accomplish this?
cp: writing `/tmp/tmpX2KZDc/system.image': No space left on device However, when I right-click on properties, I see it has 51 items, totalling only 130.5 KB!this is a dual boot system with Win XP and Ubuntu 10.10 (~58Gb partition)Quote:
anil@anil-HP-EliteBook-8440p:/tmp$ mount /dev/sda5 on / type ext4 (rw,errors=remount-ro,commit=0) proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
When I downloaded the ISO file thru DAP it showed up as 699.44MB but when I completed the download onto my HDD (XP SP3 & NTFS) it shows up as 716,230KB (see below) with a result when I try to burn on to a CD. I get an error that the file is too large. Whats happening, is there a solution to this?
I have 4 primary partitions on my hard drive. One of these partitions has been divided into 3 logical partitions with some free space left over. The order is this: "swap", "/", "/home", and about 80GB of unallocated space. I want to incorporate that unallocated space into the home partition. I tried this by booting a live CD and starting GParted but it didn't give me the option to increase the size of my home partition or the primary partition as a whole. The only thing it would let me do is decrease the size of my home partition.
Finally i have installed ubuntu 10.10 on my home PC. Its working so so good i cant really imagine :-). At the time of partition due to my immaturity, i selected the size of '/' to be 10 Gb. Now i want to increase it without reinstalling ubuntu. Is there any safe way of doing it ? i did some research and came to know that Gparted might be of some help, but i will really be grateful if any of you can guide me.
the use of livecd for example, can i use liveusb instead ? i was thinking of making liveusb of centos 5.5.
I have installed ubuntu in my 500GB passport drive. The ubuntu partition size is 120GB. I want to increase the root partition size because i ran out of disk space for "/" I have installed Gparted and accidentally created new partition table. Then all my disk space turned into unallocated space. So, i immateriality rebooted my system. Then, I am not able to boot into the drive. Moreover it is not detecting in windows too. How to undone that "MISTAKE" ??
I copied 10.4 from a 20gig hd. onto an 80 gig hd with Clonezilla and now I can't get Gparted to expand the partition to include the 50 gig that is unallocated. Obviously I cloned the drive incorrectly.
I have a dual boot machine ( win 7 & Ubuntu 10.04 ) which is reporting insufficient space on the Linux partition. I boot up into gparted and reduce the size of the the preceding partition but when I try to increase the size of the following ( linux ) partition, it won't allow it. Attached is a screenshot of the gparted info screen.
I am trying to install Ubuntu via Wubi on a 120GB hard drive but the max installation size is only 30GB. I can NOT use a CD/DVD or USB to boot because I get an error 'BOOTMGR is missing press CTRL + ALT + Delete to restart' I'm currently on Windows 7 and have looked into fixing that error. I have tried using a Windows 7 recovery disc and followed some guides but I can't seem to fix it. So I am left with the only option of installing Ubuntu via Wubi but I want to use the entire hard drive, and not just 30GB. So what I'm asking is if there is a way to increase the size.
I have booted up in a Gparted system disk. I'm trying to use Gparted to resize my current linux partition. It sits on a one HDD with another Windows partition.I have delete the windows partition (626GB) and now want to resize my linux partition to use all this unallocated space. When trying to resize the linux partition (293GB) I am not able to do so. No space is shown to be available to use. I can only make the partition smaller. Can anyone think of why I won't be able to increase my linux partition to use this now unallocated space?
I have a server setup running VirtualBox and several Windows guests. I'm running the box headless and start the windows machines using
sudo vboxheadless -s "WinXP Pro SP3"&
via SSH session from my MacBookPro in terminal. I then connect to the Virtual Machines running MS Remote Desktop from the MacBookPro. All of this works perfectly except that I've run out of space on my partition for Virtual Machines and need to create a few more. I have plenty of room on the HDD but when first installing Ubuntu Server I only partitioned and formated about 1/4 of the drive. Is it possible to run a command in my SSH session at the command line to partition the unused portion of the HDD, format it, and expand my current partition into that space? Or, do I have to use something like gpartedlive, boot from the CD and do the partitioning?
When I installed Ubuntu(with W.U.B.I) it gave a set amount of space, unfortunately I have come near the end of the set 15GB's I was just wondering if there was a way to increase the amount of space ubuntu can use

I have a few VMs set up with virtualbox but am finding that I'm now running out of space in some of the VMs. I really don't fancy creating new VMs and reinstalling and configuring them so is there an easy way to increase the size of the virtual disks?
