    If you manage to wipe /media/Volume, you should not need the ugly work-around.
    Have I ended up with two swap partitions because of the upgrade? To delete /dev/sda7 do I boot the cd and use the partition editor there?
    Yes, and yes

    Thankyou so much for your help! Problem is sorted And I understand the workings of Ubuntu a little (very little!) bit better. Now to hopefully not mess everything up messing with partitions... One more thing, will having two swap partitions be a problem or is it just ungainly? Thanks again!

    1. Congratulations

    2. Just ungainly with 2 swap areas. The second one is mounted and available but probably never needed (so waste of drive space).

    And if you are happy (for the moment), please click on Thread Tools at the top of this thread and mark this thread as SOLVED
