I have installed mint 14 nadia twice, but each time there is
something wrong with the single /sda partition.
I don't know if it has anything to do with my removing the swap
file, but thought it is worth mentioning. I don't want to have a
swap file because it takes clonezilla too long, using 'dd' I think,
to back that kind of file up.
So after I installed mint 14, I booted up with a live disk and ran
gparted to get rid of the swap file, leaving it as unallocated
space. Then I resized the main partition to incorporate that space.
Two odd things happened after that:
If I booted up with puppy linux on a usb stick, the gparted
utility on that could not see the partition (I did not try this
before getting rid of the swap file, so don't know if they are
But If I looked at it with a live cd or while running mint 14, it
could see it, and mint seems to work normally.
The deal-breaker was that if I ran clonezilla to back up the system,
it crapped out with a 'something is wrong' message.
Any suggestions as to what I can do to fix things? I'm back with
ubuntu 12.04, which is ok, but I prefer mint.
