installing linux on extra partition
location: linux.com - date: October 8, 2010
hey i was wanting to install Ubuntu on a 90 gig partition I made in windows that will allow me to Dual-boot both. I've used the Wubi installer to do it before but this time i was wanting to do it myself since wubi only allowed a max of i think 40 some gb's. So since i have 90 gigs of unallocated space i was wandering if i need to do something with the filing system or while installing Ubuntu it will recognize the partition and be able to use what filing system it wanted to?
Any help is appreciated.

VMware Fusion 2.0: Getting Linux from another partition as a virtual machine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 19, 2009
Hi, I recently modified my Macbook 5.1 (unibody aluminum) so that it can triple boot Mac OSX, Windows XP, and Linux 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope.
I have VMware Fusion 2.04 installed on my Mac and it loads XP from the Bootcamp partition just fine.
I was wondering if it is possible to load my Linux partition into VMware Fusion similar to how it does it with XP so that I can run Linux side-by-side with XP and OSX.
I have read both:
but both tell me to go to a directory/file in the VMware Fusion application support folder that doesn't exist in my version (./vmware-rawdiskCreator print /dev/disk0).
I'm new to the commands in terminal, but I believe the ./ means to go to a specific file in the directory.
Thank you, any help is appreciated.
This GPT partition label has no BIOS Boot Partition
- date: June 24, 2011
When I installed Ubuntu on my system (a year or so ago) I forgot to add a BIOS Boot Partition. This is something of a problem considering that the partition type for my 2TB drive is GPT. Hence, whenever grub is updated I get a warning:
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: This GPT partition label has no BIOS Boot Partition; embedding won't be possible!.
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and its use is discouraged..
Installation finished. No error reported.
Clearly this is something that I need to address. Looking at my partition table:
:~$ sudo parted /dev/sda unit s print
Model: ATA WDC WD20EARS-00J (scsi)
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt
Number Start End Size File system Name Flags

Problem booting on GPT partition.

I have a problem after installation debian on 8TB GPT partition (hardware raid5 - adaptec).
After successful installation my system won't boot, and giving me this error:
GPT partition of type "unknown" found, will not touch this disk

Hello I am hoping to get some help with a problem I have been having installing ubuntu on my Macbook Pro I am pretty new to all this and I am getting pretty frustrated trying to figure this out. I was able to make the CD boot it with the help of rEFit install ubuntu 13.10 and then restart my computer after installation. I then went into the rEFit partition inspector tool to verify my partitions and I came up with the error message "GPT partition of type "unknown" found, will not touch this disk." I have tried various things like gdisk and gptsync and had a hard time figuring out both and still no solution.
this is what i am looking at and not sure how to proceed.

HOWTO: chroot admin [Ubuntu] Linux on another partition
- date: April 3, 2008
I have two linux partitions - a handy set up that allows me to admin one from the other should something go wrong (e.g. with an upgrade) or I want to install something without booting into the other. I have discovered this through various tutorials / docs scattered around the web but nothing had them all in one place so here it is: charlieg's ace and simple guide to using chroot
This is a very handy way to update between major distro versions and I have done it for Gutsy->Hardy - if it doesn't boot, you can boot into the working partition and solve the problem from there!The following howto should apply to most Linux distributions. You should even be able to boot into a liveCD and do this from the console.You will need to install 'chroot', and 'mount' should be there by default.You gotta be root (sudo is ok)
So, here it is:
~]# sudo -s -H
~]# mount --bind /dev/ /media/ubuntu/dev
~]# mount --bind /dev/pts /me
Games / 3D crashing in linux Fix
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 19, 2008
Just wanted to post a solution I had to a problem I have been having lately since I installed my ATI All-In-Wonder X800 (AGP).
Whenever I would open an application requiring 3d rendering (quake 3, Wolfenstein, etc) the game would crash about a minute in and give me a sig 11 code.
I took apart my computer to realize I was running a 300 Watt power supply. I replaced it with a 500 watt and everything runs fine now (and the system is faster).
So if your getting random crashes (sig 11) from graphics intensive tasks. Check your PSU.
how to mount the GPT partition under ubuntu or chrome os.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 29, 2013
I'm trying to install Fedora 17 on the sd card of my samsung / arm chromebook. I'm following this tutorial :
I'm freezed at this point :
vbutil_kernel –pack /tmp/newkern –keyblock /usr/share/vboot/devkeys/kernel.keyblock –version 1 –signprivate /usr/share/vboot/devkeys/kernel_data_key.vbprivk –config=/tmp/config –vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz-3.4.0 –arch arm
because I don't know how to mount the /boot partition. This is the partition scheme of the ssd card where is installed ChromeOS :
localhost # cgpt show /dev/mmcblk0
1 label "STATE" type linux data
2 label "KERN-A" type chromeos kernel
3 label "ROOT-A" type Chromeos rootfs
4 label "KERN-B" type chromeos kernel
5 label "ROOT-B" type Chromeos rootfs
6 label "KERN-C" type chromeos kernel
7 label "ROOT-C" type chromeos rootfs
8 label "OEM" type linux d
Linux on iMacOS9 Partition or Emulator?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 23, 2004
I've been using Slackware on an Intel box for about a year and I'm considering upgrading my iMac (350mhz G3, slot-load CD, 128mb RAM, 6gig HD) from OS9 to Linux. Using Mac OS X is not in my budget and I'm also concerned with speed issues. Yellow Dog and Gentoo seem to be the most popular PPC distributions. I've been playing with the Gentoo PPC LiveCD and it seems to run very fast.
A problem that I see with this is, while I don't use this iMac for anything but web-browsing (Internet Explorer appears to bog down with newer web-site designs) and ssh-ing to my Slackware box, my family uses other OS9 applications, mainly games that run off of CDs.
Would I be better off having a Mac OS9 partition with a few Mac applications and a Linux installation, or should I do a full Linux install and run a Mac emulator such as Mac-on-Linux? Now that I've asked that, it seems that OS9 games would not run very well in emulation so maybe that's not an option either.
Has anyone done this? Any
