Post subject: Perfect installation but some slight problem (issues??)  PostPosted: Jul 31, 2006 - 09:34 PM

First off, this is one of the best distro's I've used.... can't believe I didn't try it earlier, so a big congrats to everyone on this Sehr glücklich

I've installed kanopix 2005 / 04 without any hussle but I may have made an error somewhere along the partition line, 'cause after reboot, I have my "/" directory appear on the desktop as "hd1", 9.7GB media.

I've had my installation on my WD j8mb 80GB hdd as:

Primary partition hdh1
* reiserFS 9GB: / mount point
Ex partition hdh4
* reiserFS - hdh5 (10GB): /home
* reiserFS - hdh6 (15GB): /opt
* reiserFS - hdh7 (39GB): /data
* reiserFS - hdh8 (1GB): /var
* hdh9 (541.22mb): Swap

So seeing a 9.7GB media on my desktop after installation seems quite strange...

Any help / suggestions??

cheers

nitto,
besides that you have installed an old version, which is hard to upgrade, to solve the disk problem, please show output of fdisk -l (its a small L)

You have to become root first:
Code:
sux
fdisk -l


devil meant Easter-RC4, which is much easier to upgrade than 2005-04.

Actually, it's quite stable for a preview release. But I wouldn't use it to run a nuclear power plant. Winken

The only major issue I know of is with VIA onboard sound chips (e.g., VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller), which may cause the sound system driver to hang during start up. But there's a simple solution for this problem.

nitto,
i guess, its just a matter of counting, 1gig being 100megs 01 1024 megs:
/dev/hdh1 1 1175 9438156 83 Linux

easter RC4 is stable here for months, but maybe just wait a little while and watch for news.
btw: how many distros live on that disk?
and on the others, this one being hdh?

Strange, I'm using the easter rc4 version and this version as well as the 2005-04 version both display incorrect partition sizes on the desktop icons, for example, my root partition is 7 gigs, it says 7.5 on desktop, my /home is 5.94 gigs, it says 6.4 on the desktop, and so on. I wonder why?

Could it be due to the way I partitioned my hdd??
I created the root "/" in the primay partition then Extended the rest, which then divided into /usr /opt etc....

Is this the correct way to partition OR was it suppose to be all Primary Partitions?

I can see nothing wrong with the way you have partitioned your drive. It is fine to have only 1 primary and the rest logical drives in the extended partition. Linux does not care. It
seems to me that your desktop hdd icons are stupid or just lying to you. I dunno since I don't use them. What does the command df -h say?

The KDE users are forever mucking about with those desktop icons to get them to work right - I personally would not trust them. Winken
