How do I partion the hard drive
« on: January 21, 2015, 05:56:15 am »
What sizes and what labels do I use?
I have read setting up hard drive but the terminology is not the same.

What type of installation are you doing?

Dual boot, means two or more Os's
or VL only?

What is the size of your hard drive?

Based on the brevity of the question and the (unintentional?) poll, I believe you're a first time user?

if so:

1 partition only.  ext4 filesystem.  use default mount options, if asked.


If you're looking deeper please give us more information to work with.
