So.... what you are saying is basically what I'm saying, just using different wording?
Thanks for the help, it's needed.
I know that. Just looking at the partitions tells a story, I explained that story, 1 , 3, 4, 2 says how it was created. The order it was done.


The disk was split in two then off the first partition the other two where created afterwards, therefor that shows room for a mistake to/or may have have taken place.

That was also my thoughts later one that maybe he didn't format partition. But I had no wifi access to revise my thoughts on this matter.

In OP earlier statement everything was done by the one he got it from and he too stated that they said it was all ext4, now later on he admits he did something to the partitions. check post #12 and #31 to verify that one.

misleading statements do not help.

First of all it's she. Second of all I didn't do anything except what was suggested, The only thing I did was edit fstab. If you found something misleading it was not intentional.

just going by this line you stated
Code:
The reason t's out of order is because it wasn't there at all and I put it there.
Which if it was as it seems taking a second look at it a mis understanding on my part perhaps by what you actually meant by "I put it there" which would require examination to what is the "it" that you are referring to.

as far as the misunderstanding by whom ever as to your gender well then that is a different matter.

Mystified is like the name Sam it is neutral gendered and no one really knows until they see what is behind the name and then sometimes perhaps one might still be mystified as to what gender that one is.

I was talking about my fstab. Sorry if I wasn't clear. as to my nick I've had it a long time since before I started using linux. It's a long story but basically I didn;t understand why the users were doing what they were doing on a forum I was active on. I wasn;t offended, just clarifying.

I've been reading everything I can. /etc/fstab used to be different. That;s what I found confusing. If you look at my join date it's 2002. A lot has changed. Just got to keep trying to catch up.

Ha ha No the motherboard on my computer fried. And then I suffered head trauma and was out of commission. I finally bought a new computer but it had win 8.1. I tried to dual boot but bios only had boot from hd. From some of the posts I gather there is a way around it. Anyway I needed win so I couldn't just get rid of it. Now I am windows free. yay
