I am having some problems in linux that are disorienting me...
I have a project for linux storage management.
I installed on my virtual machine ubuntu.
I started performing the tasks i was intrested and...confusion came up.
First i tried to create an ext4 file system with the command:
# mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1
but it says me that this device is in use by the system and will not create a file system here.
I tried the same command with all other devices i have: /dev/sda2 ,/dev/sda4 , /dev/sda5 but it reports me the same thing.
The problem is that i only have one disk :
/dev/sda and i don't know how to create another one.
I'mm totally disoriented becouse i am new in linux,but i have to finnish this project until monday...
Anybady can help me please???
I also want to configure disk quotas and i can't.
When i open the vim text editor to edit /etc/fstab i don't know where to put usrquota and/or grpquota options becouse it doesn't shows me the /home partition that i need....
I thought all this problems came from ubuntu and tried fedora...but the same things are hapenning
HELP ME PLEASE
PS: I also can't resize my partitions and don't know why ...
