Re: The empty primary partition, where should it be

Dne, 30. 06. 2010 00:08:19 je T o n g napisal(a):

/dev/hda1 Primary
/dev/hda2 Primary
/dev/hda3 Empty
/dev/hda4 Extended
/dev/hda5 Logical

but what I found most existing partitions look like this:

/dev/hda1 Primary
/dev/hda2 Primary
/dev/hda3 Extended
/dev/hda4 Empty
/dev/hda5 Logical

By Empty, do you mean:
a) unpartitioned space
b) zero-length partition
c) partition with no filesystem (unformatted)
d) none of the above?

If c), you could always create the partition as Primary and *then* delete its filesystem -- that way, methinks, you could probably place it anywhere you like. Particularly with a GUI tool such as gparted.
