How to create partitions?
« on: December 28, 2010, 05:57:07 pm »

Hello! I want someone explain how to create partitions because I do not understand the tutorial which is on the page, the probem is that when I create the partitions, not if I do well, because when I leave and I want to install tells me that there is a partition. Please explain to me step by step, I'm new to Linux Ensim. I'm testing in Virtual Box, I do not think it has anything to do but ....
Greetings. Matias.

Translated with google translator. I hope you understand.

What are you using to create the partitions? Whether you use cfdisk or gparted, you have to reboot the computer before you can continue the installation. Reboot with the installation disk and go through all the steps again, but you've already created your partition, so you don't have to do that again.

Let us know if you're still lost.

I think I use cfdisk, it is that comes on the installation disk is not? when you finish creating the partitions one has to be bootable and the other linux swap? and then I have to press in writing? and then quit? That's what I do is the only way I can continue with the installation, then I get another menu to reboot, restart and smarter than you?

Good luck with it! And let us know how things go.

Partitioning can be very confusing until you've done it enough to feel comfortable.

 @Matias:
Thank you for translating your posts. The automatic translator you use works fairly well. English is the language for the forum, but if something is too difficult to translate it is ok to sometimes ask briefly in your own language.

The Linux Documentation Project has some information in Spanish, French, Italian, Korean, and Brazilian Portuguese. As Granny said, please let us know how well installation goes.
