I have a big problem, I have successfully created my "root" and "swap"
partitions on my PB G3 (Lombard) under the MacOS; but when I go into
LinuxPPC (R5), pdisk doesn't acknowledge my disk (/dev/hda) as a disk
(message "no such device" is stated) and if I look in the partition
section of the installer program in XWindows, I am presented with no
partitions/info. How can pdisk be made to recognize my "root" and
"swap" partitions in LinuxPPC (fdisk and Disk Druid also don't
recognize/acknowledge the partitions once again, like pdisk).
Furthermore, if you guys can help with the pdisk issue, I have a
problem where Norton Disk Doctor "repairs" my "root" and "swap" so they
are back to being HFS partitions; how do I stop and then make Norton
Disk Doctor properly recognise/not recognize my Linux partitions.
My partition map is as follows:
*this is on a PB G3 (Lombard) with a 4.5GB IDE HD
PM | Format - Name | Partition Size
I have converted partitions 11 and 12 into "root" and "swap"
respectively, though as I mentioned NDD converted them back to HFS as
Thanks for any help.
