create a partiton-table with Gparted - HowTo


hi dear linux-fans

i want to do a creation of a partiton table - with gparted - on opensuse : HowTo?

i firstly

a. turn on the computer
b. start gparted
c. run the partintion-creation-programme


note: it is not (!!!) possible to co a partition-table when you either

a. run any programme on the machine
b. do anything with the machine


in other words: i only can do a partion table when all (!!!) programmes are switche off and Gparted is the only thing that runs...

is this true

I use the gparted live cd for almost all partitioning
though in the opensuse 12.2/3 repos gparted is listed
that is only good for extra disks that the OS is NOT running on

as for "how to's" search google for gparted ,there are a ton of them

no
the partition must be unmounted and NOT in use

that is why i use the "live cd"

well - with the live-cd it is better i also have experienced this...


what do you say to this partition table


i currently am preparing the the systemchange (opgrade ) from opensuse version 12.2 to 12.3

all the important thing´s i want to save is

- thunderbird - with enigmail and the corresponding gnupgp passwords and credentials


all the other things( data etx etc) was stored and saved.
But the rearrange and new setup of the above mentioned thunderbird does make me a bit frightened - it was very very tricky process to deal with all those enigmail-things and the setup of kpgp
it took me several weeks.


So - if i had to choose between a fresh (vanilla ) install - on a "nacked" laptop - with no home-partiion or something ohter old stuff - i would prefer this way - (if i were able to quickliy re-build the tbird with enigmail)

if i intend to do such a installation - i should / could rework the old partinion table - or what do you think !? Does this currently used partion make sense !?

How would you arrange the installation.

Note - i do not need any other system on the lappy - years ago - i thougtht that i need some place for another operating system. These times are passed - i only want to stick to openSuse.
;-)


So i look forward to your ideas regarding the partition table: Look forward to hear from you
