  1. [ubuntu] Re: Disk extend "All primary partitions are in use." error

    Since sda3 is the last partition on the drive, you could resize it with gparted into the 200 GB unallocated space immediately following to make use of that space. Needs to be unmounted when operating...

    [ubuntu] Re: Boot up trouble

    'unmount' is not the command, it should be 'umount'. An easy mistake to make.

    Mount filesystem on sda1 at /mnt/tmp and then unmount:

    sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/tmp
    sudo umount /mnt/tmp

    You might try a 'mixed' system. The drive in the screenshot has standard partitions and LVM partitions. This started with the two regular partitions for two OS. Then I wanted to learn about LVM, so I...

    [UbuntuGnome] Re: 18.04 DH replacement

    Was the installer booted in UEFI mode? If not, it would fail to install grub bootloader because your drive is not set up for legacy BIOS install. (You could install an LVM system using legacy BIOS...

    [UbuntuGnome] Re: 18.04 DH replacement

    Well, this isn't right for the EFI system partition (this is not called a boot partition - you don't need to make a boot partition).

    /dev/vme0n1p1 fat32 /media/robin/BOOT
    The partition you...

    [UbuntuGnome] Re: 18.04 DH replacement

    FAT32 is good. Maybe you forgot to set the boot flag on this partition. Gparted will then show 'boot,esp' in the 'flags' column.

    You mean non-root owner? Don't change anything that's not in your own home folder. Exception: new LVs you make for your own data. Another exception I did is folders in /opt on a case-by-case basis -...

    [SOLVED] Re: how to see drives?

    Yanking it out before it's unmounted is a bad idea, as stated in the posts above. But, if you should leave a USB inserted while powering off your computer, systemd unmounts all mounted file systems...

    [UbuntuGnome] Re: 18.04 DH replacement

    That's true, UUID has to be caps. Another way is first make a label for the file system and then mount in fstab using the label. Like so:

    That may have been correct years ago (before I ever used LVM) but not anymore, at least for unencrypted installs. I can't advise on using it with encryption.
