    Red face No disk space

    Obviously I goofed badly. I installed Ubuntu on my 60 GB hard drive using dual installation as Windows XP alaready installed.
    WhenI try to login to Ubuntu, I get the error message, "No disk space."

    As you see, I'm the ultimate nubie. Any suggestions as to uninstalling? My guess is that I did the partition wrong.

    Thanks for you help.

    hello,
    i would boot from a system rescue CD, check the partitioning scheme, which is probably the issue as you noted.
    telnet mtrek.game-host.org 1701

    Question Disk partition

    I'm back where I started and ready to install Ubuntu. My problem is knowing how to allocate disk space for dual booting.

    I am asked at this poit in the installation process to provide the following
    allocations:

    /dev/hda1 ntfs
    unallocarted
    /dev/hda2 ext3
    /devb/hda3 extended
    /dev/hda5 linux-swap
    unallocated

    Is there some knowledgeable soul who can provide some guidance by making some recommendations?

    Thanks in advance

    For simplicity I would have the following partitioning scheme:

    hda1 - windows xp
    hda2 - linux
    hda3 - linux swap

    Keep it simple for now. Advanced partitioning schemes are mostly useful for servers to add security. Home users rarely gain from anything fancy.

    Partitions

    Thanks, Schotty,

    I have a Toshiba laptop with 60 GB hard drive and 512 RAM.
    I don't know how much space to allot the various partitions.

    Being a brand new newbe, I sure want to keep it simple.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    hello,
    i would go with -
    /dev/hda1 25 GB - MS Windows XP - NTFS
    /dev/hda2 15 GB - Linux mian partition
    /dev/hda3 19 GB - Linux Home partition
    /dev/hda4 1 GB - swap

    (i differ from schotty in liking a home partition)
    telnet mtrek.game-host.org 1701

    PBHarris, although that is a good setup, he may find some issues with that since he hasn't necessarily been accustomed to the Linux way yet. I find that using one big lump is easier. Normally I add a /boot, /var and /usr in, but thats for security issues and logging. I have been nailed good with assaults that have caused /var/log/ to blow up to insane sizes (over 60GB) and /usr can be locked up real tight for workstations. However for normal users and especially noobs, I just leave it to 2 linux paritions + any other OS (MacOS or Windows).


    That said, again, it should be a good setup with that.

    Disk partition

    I am learning how much I don't know!
    I started the installation. When I arrived at the partition screen, there were three choices. Erase the entire disk, Use the largest continuous space, and Manually partitiion.
    I chose to use the largest continuous space--wrong choice. Could not login due to lack of disk space.
    Now the partitions read as follows: /dev/hda 55.89 GB

    /dev/hda1 ntfs 15.55 GB
    unallocated 35.14 GB
    /dev/hda2 ext3 2.07GB
    /devhda3 extended 133.35 MB
    /dev/hda5 linux-swap 101.95 MB
    unallocated 31.38 MB

    I can't figure how to move the unallocated.

    Any help greatly appreciated

    Thumbs up

    Muddler,
    lets see if the following works for you!
    Step1:
    /dev/hda1 ntfs 15.55 GB
    unallocated 35.14 GB
    /dev/hda2 ext3 2.07GB <--- Delete this
    /devhda3 extended 133.35 MB <--- Delete this
    /dev/hda5 linux-swap 101.95 MB <--- Delete this
    unallocated 31.38 MB

    Step2:
    After you are done with the above steps, most probably you`ll have the following partition table:

    /dev/hda1 ntfs 15.55 GB
    unallocated 37MB(approx)

    Now you are ready to create partitions as follows:
    /swap 512MB(to 1GB as per your wish)
    /ext3 10 GB
    unallocated 26MB(or something: You can convert this space into a windows partition later on by using any software like Partition Magic.)

    Your partition table should look like this:
    /dev/hda1 ntfs 15.55 GB
    /swap 512MB(to 1GB as per your wish)
    /ext3 10 GB
    unallocated 26MB

    Step 3:
    You are ready to install Ubuntu in /ext3(20GB) partition as your root(/) partition.

    Let me know if this works for you
