Re: reclaiming space from redmond!
ok i have cleared my d: drive and am ready to format it to ext2.
a current "df" gives:
mantra:~# df -hT
Filesystem Type Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda8 ext2 3.8G 3.5G 151M 96% /
tmpfs tmpfs 189M 0 189M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda6 ext2 45M 5.3M 37M 13% /boot
/dev/hda1 ntfs 6.9G 6.2G 657M 91% /mnt/c
/dev/hda5 vfat 7.8G 301M 7.5G 4% /mnt/d
/dev/hdb1 vfat 28G 21G 7.1G 75% /mnt/g
/dev/hdb5 vfat 28G 23G 5.0G 83% /mnt/h
/dev/hdb6 vfat 28G 15G 14G 52% /mnt/i
/dev/hdb7 vfat 31G 25G 6.6G 79% /mnt/j
/dev/hdc iso9660 4.4G 4.4G 0 100% /media/cdrom0
i just have a quick follow-up question:
once i create a linux (ext2) partition of /dev/hda5 (my old d: drive)
can i further partition /dev/hda5 into two because i want to move both
/usr and /home to it (8gb is too much for /usr alone and i expet a lot
of mails, docs and apps in my /home!)?
do i need to specifically mount /usr and /home to the new partition
(/dev/hda5) or is it enough if i just "mv" the folder and change fstab
settings. can one have two folders (/usr and /home mounted on the same
/dev/hda5 - if not then how to partition further to make it happen?)
any help would be much appreciated - i am becoming savvy with linux but
partitions still scare me!
