View Full Version : [SOLVED] Partion Problems?

November 22nd, 2009, 05:44 AM
I'm trying to Install Ubuntu 9.10 Server Edition 64 Bit.
during the install orginally i tried to create the following partions

/dev/sda1 /boot 10 GB
/dev/sda2 /swap 10 GB
/dev/sda3 / 100 GB

/dev/sda4 is a extended partion that holds the following logical partions

/dev/sda5 /home 31 GB
/dev/sda6 /usr 40 GB
/dev/sda7 /var 40 GB
/dev/sda8 /tmp 10 GB

It ended up hanging at about 83% each time, i finally wondered if it was a partion problem so i ended up doing only the first three and leave the rest of the hard drive as free space. The install worked just fine. I then tried to manual use Fdisk to create the extended partion and the 4 logical partions and on reboot Gurb hung and never booted. So i'm guessing there is some type of issue with my choice of partions any thoughts?


PS One thing i thought was odd that its a 250 GB HD but it was letting me partion 251.1 GB, not sure if thats normal for Ubunutu or not.

There seems to be an issue with 9.10 and the paritions, as i revered to 9.04 and it worked just fine. Problem Solved
