View Full Version : [all variants] [SOLVED] On-linve via LiveCD & making separate /home

May 16th, 2008, 05:32 PM
I'm running HH LiveCD.

I'm trying to follow Psychocat's instructions for putting /home on it's own partition.


I'm not using any NTFS, so the entire 320 gig (290 gig formatted) is Ubunutu.

My problem is, when I resize/move I am not expanding the / partition to 15 gig, which is what I want. Then I'll add another partition for /home.

Also, when the HH was installed, GParted shows a approx. 2 gig "extended" partition, then the swap. Is the extended part of swap or unnecessary?

The guided install usually puts swap on a logical partition. An extended is just a wrapper for the partitions inside, but is separate in the sense that it has its own partition #.

Working from the live cd you should be trying to shrink / from its right border. Then create the /home in freed space.
