I have Ubuntu and Xubuntu both installed on my machien on partitions.

On my ubuntu I can see my Xubuntu partition, but on Xubuntu I cannot see my Ubuntu partition.

Any idea why?

While in xbuntu post the output of


sudo fdisk -l (lower case L)


And the output of:


cat /etc/fstab

I see two swap partitions, did you mistakeningly make two? You only need one even if you're running two different window managers. Heck, even my puppylinux will pick up my Ubuntu swap and mount for use.

I'm, assuming it's the larger partition, /dev/sda6 you want to properly mount. You need to make a mount point for it, and change the the partition type in gparted. Remember to umount /dev/sda6 first, or you might neet to do a sudo swapoff /dev/sda6 first.

IMPORTANT: Do not format that partition with gparted if you have important data on it.

I was looking to add another OS (another LINUX flavor) to my Dell inspiron 9400. This was one of the threads I found in the search. I actually "killed" my vista install, and could not recover it....oh well.
Anyway I also found two swap part.'s on my disk....


Will start a new thread on my questions.
Thanks for the great info on this site!
