After I updated my MimiMe2010 to the 126.96.36.199-pclos2.bfs kernel, I received an error message that I have overlapping partitions.
Here's the result of fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes

Partition table entries are not in disk order
sda1 is an empty ntfs part
sda2 is my old pclosupdated 2010 /
sda4 is my old pclosupdated 2010 /home
sda5 = old swap
sda6 = current /
sda7 = current swap
sda8 = current /home
I searched the forum & found a good bit of related info, but each situation was very different from mine & I wanted to post my specifics. Actually I don't completely understand the problem & the fdisk -l report!
I created everything with harddrake during pclos installs, using custom partitioning.
And everything runs great, so I don't want to bust what is working fine.
(I have done that)
My plan had been to remove the old linux partitions-sda2, 4, 5 and move them in front of the empty space.
Will that set things right?
Appreciate any insight!
