Subject: [Yast-dev] Help required during Manual install partition proposal
I am working on Linux installation. I have encountered a problem
for which I need your suggestion.
Problem Statement: Partition proposal goes for a toss during manual
installation. Partition proposal that we need. We need the partition
proposal as follow.
boot( minimal), swap(2 times the RAM), root and COS(this is our own
filesystem) each getting 50% of the remaining respectively.
Where the problem occurs:
During installation in manual mode, the partition proposal on the UI is
shown with the right percentage for each partition as mentioned above.
But once I enter custom partitioning menu, the start and end region of
boot, swap, root takes up all the disk region leaving out COS, hence we
dont get the right proposal when we move forward in the installation.
What did you do to get the proposal to match your needs?
And what version are you working with? SLES 10?
Further we will be adding another partition to the
existing ones named
/var. Since maximum partitions that we can have is 4 and we already
have 4 as mentioned above. How can we add /var partition.
MSDOS partition tables can only have four primary partitions. But
you can create an extended partition instead of one primary and
place several logical partitions inside it.
