Please please please have mercy on me! Four days with out a ciggerete, had a huge fight and broke up with my girlfriend last night. Flat broke, gas tank on e, unemployed. So if this post seems edgy, annoying, whiny or anything like, see past that! I just wanna play with kde4.1 rc1, and the only spot I have to install it is sbc2! Please read on…
Because inserting images seems to not work for me, here is a link to a screen shot I took of YaST2 ‘disk’ setup.
I have no clue what any of this means, so I am going to do a run through of what I think it means. If I am wrong please, throw rocks at me, be mean, beat me, I don’t care. Just make sure I have it right!
sda is the first hard drive plugged into my motherboard. sda1 is the first partition on sda, which so happens to be my C:\ drive for windows.
sdb is the second hard drive plugged into my motherboard. sdb1 is the first partition, and is my main perminate ubuntu install.
sdb2 and sdb5 have something in common. sdb2 is extended which confuses me, but I’d guess that it is saying to cut sdb apart, make another partion which becomes sdb5, my D:\ Drive where I have my windows programming stuff installed.
sbc is my 150 gb external hd. sbc1 is the first partiton, sbc2 is the second, and sbc3 is linux swap space.
I want to install opensuse on sbc2! Its got sdb1 marked for formatting, and where the installer is installing to, which is BAD! I’m use to the Ubuntu installer, which lets me point where I am installing to. But from what I can tell, YaST2 wants to, and will only install to sdb1, which, again, is BAD, WRONG, and NOT what I want. so, why is the suggested partitioning the only option? I sorta have another version of opensuse on that partition already. It never worked though, maybe thats why I can’t do what I am trying to do. I have no where else to install it.
Please help! And many many thanks in advanced!
