Partitioning & PDisk

Partitioning & PDisk

Post by Robert Hoope » Sun, 01 Nov 1998 04:00:00

Hi, I am trying to install Linux and I run into problems when using pdisk in
the installer.

I have a 2.3gig HD dedicated to Linux. I make a swap and a root partition.

Like this:

start block
end block

I then do a "write."

It can't recognize the drive (the installer). What am I doing wrong?

BTW, this version I am installing is TurboLinux.

1. Will pdisk wipe my Apple_HFS partition?

I have a 1 gig unused partition on a 6gig IDE internal drive on my G3
desktop. I want to make use this partition to hold MkLinux.

I have 2 questions:

1) If I partition using pdisk and don't change anything relating to the
apple HFS partition, will pdisk wipe my Apple volume or will it just
create the new UNIX partitions?

2) Will I be able to boot from /dev/hda6. I had alot of trouble getting
my G3 to install MkLinux from the IDE CDROM. I have been able to boot
linux from my external SCSI drive but it just died.
