Gparted crashed while moving partition!!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 28, 2011
So I was moving and resizing a ntfs partition and i just touched gparted window and it crashed!! it was about 66% of finishing the operation... Now i guess i have a big mess in my hard drive and i dont know how to start solving it! i am in a ubuntu live cd and waiting for your help, any ideas??
If i open gparted now it shows the same partition table than before resizing and moving.. so i guess now part of my data is in this unallocated space after the sda5 partition..
thanks in advance!
Error while resizing partition with GParted
- date: September 29, 2010
Hi, I was resizing a partition of my hard drive with GParted in an Ubuntu LiveCD. The hard drive has Windows 7, Linux Mint y Ubuntu 10.04. My intention was to get rid of Ubuntu and make some space for Linux Mint. There was an error while resizing, and the GRUB is gone, but also GParted shows no partition. I want, at least, to recover the data (specially sda2 i think is my linux mint partition) and then I can install Ubuntu again.
I have run fdisk -l -u and this was the result:
:~$ sudo fdisk -l

GParted + Moving partition out of the 'Extended' partition
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 31, 2010
Ive installed Windows 7 + XP + Ubuntu 10.10 and Mac Os X on my PC. The problem is that XP wont boot :/ Ive tried a lot of fixes for the last 2 days but still nothing. So ive come to conclusion that it might be probably due to its partition (dev/sda8) being inside of another Extended partition (dev/sda3) as you guys can see on the attachment. Is that the real problem? If so, how can i move it out of the extended partition.
Thx in advance
Error while moving: Permission Denied
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 9, 2008
I moved some files from an external hd to my Ubuntu desktop and it seems that there is some sort of permission problems. I can't move the files off my desktop where I want them without getting a permission error. The folders in question have a lock emblem on them if that is any help. Let me know if you can help.
Error while moving Permission denied
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 9, 2011
I am sorry if this has been asked a thousand times I have tried searching but I am not getting any relevant results.
I am running an instance of ubuntu server 10.10. Its headless and I connect to it by ssh.
I am having problems with file permissions on the server while accessing it on ubuntu 11.04.
I use the transmission daemon to download torrent files.
When I boot up my laptop and mount the server location I can see play and use files but I dont seem to have the permissions to delete or move the files that have been downloaded by the transmission daemon.
I am a noob with linux and hoping someone may be able to offer some easy to digest help.
Here is the samba share in smb.conf on my server.
guest ok = yes
comment = shares
writable = yes
browseable = yes
path = /home/administrator/shares
However when I log into webmin and use the integrated file manager I can do what I like with the files.
Any help woul
GParted cannot resize linux partition
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 8, 2012
System specs: Acer Aspire 5738Z, Ubuntu 11.10 with GParted. 320GB hard-drive. (GParted is confused, the total of all partitions is 426GB, but the manufacturer's sticker clearly says "320GB HDD".)
I had allocated 10GB to Ubuntu during the installation a year and a bit ago. I thought that I could have a copy of any file on my windows partition, so I wouldn't need it on the Ubuntu one. But that recently has been too much of a hassle, so I've decided that I'd extend my linux partition, I'm supposed to have 320GB and I've hardly used any of it!
But, with hard drive partitions, there are always roadblocks and safety features etc. So of course, it won't be as simple as resizing the Windows partition, extending the linux one... *sigh*
I've attached a screenshot of Gparted.
PQSERVICE is Acer's built-in factory restore partition, I don't want to touch that.
System Reserved is reserved for something... Probably for bootloading so I definitely don't want to touch that.

Gparted error upon resizing partition
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 24, 2012
I am in need of your help!
I logged in to my system which I made to automount the partition /dev/sda9 (/Data). Earlier I did a resize of this partition when installing Pangolin for testing. In an attempt to increase the size of the testing system, and while logged in my default system (Lucid), I closed all applications that are using /Data, umount(ed) /dev/sda9 & used gparted to resize /dev/sda9 (I know; I should have used a live session instead so I am sure all partitions are unmounted; my bad!!)
So the thing is that gparted produced an error (attached):
Shrink /dev/sda9 from 125.12 GiB to 120.25 GiB 00:00:15 ( ERROR ) calibrate /dev/sda9 00:00:00 ( SUCCESS ) path: /dev/sda9

[bootrepair] Unable to boot Windows after moving partition to SSD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2012
I just moved my Linux and Windows partitions on my new SSD. Thanks to boot-repair (which was updated at the occasion) , I am now able to boot again under Linux.
But I still have a problem when booting my Windows partition: when booting, I get:
Status: 0xc000000e Info: The boot selection failed because a required boot device is inaccessible
When I moved my Windows partition, I did not move the 100 MB partition preceding it.
I believe that Windows looks for my old disk, which I would like to get rid of.
Is there any way to fix the Windows boot devices list so that it will run the adequate partition? I am a bit reluctant to use the Windows repair tool on the installation CDROM because I believe it may have crashed my partition tables the last time I used it.
What is the best way to proceed?
Here is the boot-repair log: http://paste.debian.net/193748/
Grub 2 won't boot after resizing and moving partition
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 29, 2011
I have: WinXP (FAT32) on SDB1, Ubuntu Studio (ext4) 10.4 on SDB2, NetBSD on SDB3, and an extended partition with an NTFS partition, a Linux sap partition, and 3 FAT32 partitions. I had the GRUB loader on the boot sector of SDB2 and used a tool called BOORPART to install it onto the WinXP partition so I used the NT boot loader to link to the GRUB loader. The WinXP and Ubuntu Studio partitions were running out of space, so I used GParted to resize and move all the partitions. I made the FAT32 data partitions smaller and moved them. I deleted and re-created/re-located the Linux partition, and I relocated the NTFS partition. I deleted and re-created/re-located (but not formatted or loaded) the NetBSD partition and so it should have been seen as unallocated space. I enlarged and re-located the Ubuntu Studio partition, and I enlarged the WinXP partition. WinXP booted, but Ubuntu Studio did not. testdisk did not find the new NetBSD partition (it skipped that empty space), and it showe
text in terminal emulator flickers while moving the window
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 18, 2013
when i'm moving a terminal emulator window (in this case terminator), all the text in it starts to "flicker".
i figured out that it is noticeable when the background is set to black (or dark) and the font color is set to white (or any bright color).
it's not a big problem to me, but i'm really interested in the reason for this problem.
i'm actually running slackware 14 with openbox as windowmanager (from slackbuilds).
i've installed the nvidia drivers too.
any ideas what can cause this?
