Re: Partioning advice dualboot LM18.3 and 19

Just to clarify the partitioning, the 4th would be the extended partition where you would then setup the logical partitions. I sort of misspoke in my first post. Also you can't mix gpt and msdos partitions on a disk. The disk is either gpt or msdos partitioned. And yes you can use the same /swap for...

Re: Through own stupidity not able to boot Mint anymore

Hello linux-nu-bee https://thumb.ibb.co/dA8CQ8/hello.gif Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :) If you did resize from a running system you might have damaged the filesystem. You can try running blkid|grep ext2 to identify the boot partition designation then try e2fsck -fvy /dev/sda1 from...

Re: Partioning advice dualboot LM18.3 and 19

MyM,

What you're attempting sounds feasible.

Resize/move and create your partitions from the live session and make sure you can boot 18 before installing 19.

You will only need one logical partition for home as that would be your 4th primary.

Good luck :wink:

Re: Permission denied

First try sudo -i which will escalate to root privileges in the terminal then echo ON > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

If you want to use tee and not the root privileged terminal then echo ON|sudo tee /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

Re: cannot paste into wind*ws partition

It's most likely due to permission setting,

You might have to mount it from fstab or manually.

Paste back mount|grep ^/dev

Re: Emergency mode, failed mount /home I can not recover my data

Since the primary superblock is corrupted, the only thing to try is using an alternative superblock as explained in man e2fsck.

It also explains how to determine alternative superblocks using the mke2fs program.

Good luck :wink:

Re: Installed Mint 19 fresh, can't mount my external hard drive

I'm surprised to hear that it worked on a windows machine but wouldn't mount with ntfs-3g until you ran ntfsfix on it :?

In the end it seems all is good :D

Re: Installed Mint 19 fresh, can't mount my external hard drive

It is there so try creating a mountpoint for it with sudo mkdir /media/GoFlex

then mount it with sudo mount -t ntfs-3g -o defaults,noatime,utf8,dmask=002,fmask=111,uid=1000,gid=1000 /dev/sdb1 /media/GoFlex and check the mount again.
