Hi, this might just be my first real problem with Debian! That's pretty cool as I was a Slackware user since 8.1 before switing to Etch earlier this year and it's been smooth rolling all the way until now. My issue is that I've been running fine on a 120gb IDA disk but recently bought a 500GB SATA drive and am trying to rebuild the system onto it. Windows went on fine, but the partitioning in Debian 4 isn't faring so well.
I aim to set it up thus;
25GB win fat32
25GB linux / ext3
~448gb /mnt/special ext3
i always do the /mnt/special thing by the way, I just like to separate a drive from all OSes. when saying YES to proceed with the above partition plan it does its thing for a wee while but then gives the following error;
"File system is reporting the free space as 1345609 clusters, not 1345617 clusters.
I am currently having Crunchy Nut Clusters for my supper but I don't think its actually referring to them, hehe!
but I'm not sure how to get around this issue. I don't think its anything due to my partitioning plan being rubbish as I had a similar one before, albeing with a smaller 'special' partition.
