    Don't think that command works in VIX..

    Using DE BH i used uuid to mount. There was also this "by-uuid" directory somewhere (in /dev? can't remember exactly..)

    Just added the following to the sticky:


    Use fdisk to create partition
    (WARNING: Ensure you have taken backups of any data you want to keep from all devices, I do not assume responsibility for any data lost!!!):


    You will first need to unmount the device you want to re-partition. To do this, use the command umount device, for example umount /dev/sda

    Then, you can start to partition the device:
    fdisk device. For example, fdisk /dev/sda

    To get help in fdisk, enter the letter m, followed by enter press. The most common commands used are:

    p - print the partition table
    n - create a new partition
    d - delete a partition
    q - quit without saving changes
    w - write the new partition table and exit
    t - change a partition's system id

    Changes you make to the partition table do not take effect until you issue the write w command.

    First off, list all the partitions on the disk by press the p. This should give you the partitions on your disk, an example would be:

    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 32.0 GB, 32006733824 bytes
    17 heads, 17 sectors/track, 216308 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 289 * 512 = 147968 bytes
     
       Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1             1    213474  30846984+  83  Linux
    /dev/sda2        213475    216308    409513   82  Linux swap
    Delete all current partitions, by pressing d. This may ask you for the partition number (may not if you only have 1 partition. In the example above, I would choose 1 for sda1, and 2 for sda2. Delete all partitions.

    Now, we can just press n to create the new partition(s). This will ask if you want an extended or primary. Choose primary by entering p. Now, enter 1 as the partition number. If you are just going to do the 1 partition, just press enter when it asks you for the first cylinder and last cylinder.

    However, if you want a swap partition, or 2 partitions, then you will need to calculate the cylinder values you need for the sizes you want to set. In my example of the partitions above, I want a 400mb swap file. From the number of bytes, I can do 32006733824 (number of bytes) divided by 1024 which gives 31256576kb. I now need to divide it by 1024 again, to give me MB, which equals 30524MB. So, to have 1 partition as the main drive (of the majority of disk) and another as swap with 400MB, I will do 30524 minus 400, which gives me 30124. Now, to work out how many cylinders to use for the first partition (~30124MB), we need to work out the ratio. So, 30124/30524 gives us a ratio of 0.9869. So, for partition 1, we want 216308 * 0.9869 cylinders (which is 213474 (rounded). So, when I am asked for the first cylinder, I would enter 1 (as we want it to start at the beginning), and then when I'm asked for the last cylinder, I would enter 213474. Then, I would follow through, and choose the process again (n to create a new partition), choose primary (p), then enter 2 as your partition number. Now, when it asks the first cylinder, you can just press enter for the default value given (first free cylinder, which is 213475). You can also just press enter to accept the default value for the last cylinder. If you now choose p, this should give you the table, as shown above, except the sytem is Linux on both, instead of Linux Swap for the swap partition...

    So now, we need to press t to change the system ID so the system recognizes it as a swap partition. You will be asked which partition to change the system id. In this case, it would be 2. You should now enter 82, as this is the code for a linux swap. You will now receive a message to say you've changed the partition type. Now, pressing p to print the partition table, will give you the same as the code above... Now, we just need to write it by press w.

    You can now proceed to format the partitions for use in linux

    Format a partition
    (WARNING: Ensure you have taken backups of any data you want to keep from all devices, I do not assume responsibility for any data lost!!!):


    Again, to format a partition, you must ensure your partition is not mounted. Issue the command umount device, for example umount /dev/sda1

    Now, you can format the partition using the command:

    Code:
    mkfs.ext3 device (e.g. mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda1)
    By default, five percent of the partition is reserved for use by the root user. This allows root to conduct administrative activities on the partition and perhaps move some data off. However, this is most critical when the partition contains / or home directories. For pure data partitions, this is just lost space. So, if you have a 1tb hdd, then 5% of this is ~50gb. A lot of wasted space. So, we can get the system to only use 1%, which is more negligable. To do this, we issue the command:

    Code:
    mkfs.ext3 -m 1 device (e.g. mkfs.ext3 -m 1 /dev/sda1

    I've got Telnet Client window on my laptop and connected to gigablue box via WLAN, so I have an ip address that works with OpenWebIf.

    How do I actually connect the telnet to the box??
