Re: Dual Boot Julia/ LMDE. Best Partition Scheme

Hi Dave!
Now I understand, you left 15 GB free space - to later on test another distribution.
I only have one question: what's about swap? The forum and my own experience are showing, that there might be a bug. So, I'm asking:
The System Monitor/ Resources shows, if swap is active; could you please have a look at it and see:
x bytes ..% of 2 GiB
or
0 bytes (0.0 %) of 0 bytes
?

I don't think I've ever had an issue with swap. I have 1GB of RAM, and I have yet to use it all. I only run two or three things at a time. (Firefox, Rythmbox and maybe Thunderbird ocassionally).

I'm going to mark this solved, as it appears everything went well.

I appreciate everyone's help (not to mention the concern for my well-being :lol: ).

Take Care, and I'll See Ya'll Around,
Dave

Hi Dave!
Glad to hear that!
You could do me a favour:
Please have a look on System Monitor/ Resources, as I wrote on Jan 08, 3:36 pm.
In spite of
as it appears everything went well.

it could be that your swap partition is not recognized.
If you want a proof, you could compare the UUID of swap partition sda2 printed in
Code: Select all
sudo blkid

and
Code: Select all
cat /etc/fstab

You see a difference? (Or fstab shows a wrong partition?)
It could be useful for other users asking for help.

I'll take a look at this tonight, once I get back to the house. I'll post some outputs for your review.

Code: Select all
/dev/sda1: UUID="055a493a-02a2-4d5e-b433-4343e8b14436" TYPE="swap"
/dev/sda2: UUID="1dea663f-aae3-40e6-ac88-d6311142d980" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda3: UUID="afb957f7-09e1-4c49-9498-5980547e6170" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sda4: UUID="692df053-a143-4139-80d9-486c77e5eac9" TYPE="ext4"
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="data" UUID="5576326261BF62B0" TYPE="ntfs"


Code: Select all
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=39dce7bc-28c6-4d48-a3e1-b2d48712856e /               ext3    errors=remount-ro 0       1
# swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=f5355ad1-6de9-497b-a8d4-e2abe7336d4d none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0
/dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0
proc   /proc   proc   nodev,noexec,nosuid   0   0
/dev/sda4   /   ext4   rw,errors=remount-ro   0   0


Edit 1/11/11-1917: Added outputs per request.

Thanks,

Hi Dave!
It seams to me that your swap partition is not recognized; you could proof it -> see my post Jan 08, 3:36 pm.
Your 2 last outputs do not match.
