Guided Resize not doing anything

Postby Eurex on Fri Jan 23, 2009 4:58 pm

i'm doing a dual boot of mint and windows xp... I booted the live cd then selected install from the desktop and everything went along fine, i selected guided resize to create a partition for mint. A progress bar popped up saying please wait but it didn't do anything for 45mins then this error popped up...

Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/sda5 -- Device or resource busy. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/sda5 until you reboot -- so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting

Any ideas?


Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
