This is my first attempt at installing ubuntu 12.04 on my Acer D270 netbook(2 GB RAM).
First of all my partition table looks like this.
Now the 48.83 GB partition is an ext4 partition created using GParted(ubuntu live CD). Now when I try to install ubuntu in this partition by clicking install now it prompts No SWAP partition created.
Now when I try to click on the ext4 partition to create SWAP nothing happens. I tried the options provided by the ubuntu installer Add,Change without any luck.
So, my question is how to create the SWAP partition. I understand that I cannot create more than 4 partitions but now what needs to be done to create SWAP.
PS: This is my first attempt at installing linux.
