I’ve moved important Media to my external Hard drive, via PCLinuxOS LXDE 2011.06 ‘Mini’.
PCLinuxOS KDE 2011.06 seems to be unstable, it has very little disk space from what I can gather.
Being more a Windows user, I’m stuck, also I don’t think info I’m gathering like Disk Space, is accurate.
I’m feeling best get on with resizing the Hard Drive to accomodate PCLinuxOS LXDE 2011.06 ‘Mini’, Delete PCLinuxOS KDE 2011.06, and when appropriate, install PCLinuxOS KDE 2011.06 ‘MiniMe’, if possible. I have the Live CD's of all three burnt.
The Full KDE version is little use as I can’t use the many programmes the updates provide.
I prefer to select ones I’m familiar with, and will be of use.
Plus I think “it” (PCLinuxOS KDE 2011.06) is running in 6 GB space. / 3GB ; home GB, and about to crash ! ? Abiword, is acting very buggy, not retaining text, or saving properly. Obviously the Disk is probably not too stable.I’m working from PCLinuxOS LXDE 2011.06 ‘Mini’. which is feeling stable, and working well.
1.) I have 40 GB HDD.
2.) I do not have Windows installed.
3. ) Would like to have PCLinuxOS LXDE 2011.06 ‘Mini’ in larger space.
4.) Remove PCLinuxOS KDE 2011.06.
5.) Install PCLinuxOS KDE 2011.06 ‘MiniMe’. (when appropriate )
6.) Ultimately, share the Drive equally between LXDE 2011.06 ‘Mini’, and 'MiniMe'.
OP, obviously up to you, but if your offer of help still stands, I’d be really grateful for a hand.
After 3 years of using PCLinuxOS, and Dual booting, I’m a newby at this.
I’ve read about partitioning, and the different types, tried fdisk, but just getting confused, between Windows, and Linux. Seems I’m still hardwired to Windows terms, etc., as I work with it daily ... a large learning experience has presented itself
OP, any info, commands, just fire away when you have time. I’ll do my best .
My timezone is +10 hours (GMT) , plus still not 100% well, but feel this situation eating away at me, especially if instability of HDD gets worse. Have to just take things a step at a time, your wisdom prevailing.
I love my P.C. , it’s not much, took it off of my Son who had trashed it (winXP) but in the six years I’ve had it, never crashed it, just made it the best it could be.
Making up for it now, hmmm.Felt best to inform of what I’d like to do, so if willing, time permitting, you could help me nut this out.
all the best,
