General tour for everyone !!!

Tonight, I finally did the jump !

After a few days seeking support for a problem with my Windows partition who finally got solved with a chkdsk, I finally could prepare my partitions and install Ubuntu 8.04 on my PC !  Ubuntu and XP boot without any problem and work perfectly !

For my geekish success, I pay a general tour for everyone !

Beer, juice and other beverages ! The fridge is full !

Ce soir, j'ai finalement fait le saut !

Après quelques jours à demander du support pour un problème avec ma partition Windows qui s'est résolue avec un chkdsk, j'ai finalement pu partitionner mon disque C et installer Ubuntu 8.04 sur mon ordi !  Ubuntu et XP démarrent sans problème et fonctionnent parfaitement !

Pour mon succès geekesque, je paie une tournée générale pour tout le monde !

Bière, jus et autres breuvages !  Le frigo est plein !

Re: General tour for everyone !!!

Congratulations big_smile my laptop used to be partitioned with a C and a D drive, I got it from school in this laptop program. Then about a month ago I installed JSAS which was this module to install joomla on your computer and somehow it stuffed up C drive and the computer didn't work anymore, so I got it reformatted at school and they managed to get the stuff of D drive (where my personal files are) but when I got it back they didn't bother partitioning it, well that doesn't matter much as I have everything backed up on another computer now smile I learned my lesson.

I also found it interesting that before, I used to always run out of space on the computer and suddenly now its all in one drive and I haven't even used half of the space available smile

Partitioning is cool I reckon but somehow it destroyed my computer before... :S I now use WAMP for everything big_smile

Oh and I would like a chocolate milkshake smile


I hate exams  :angry:

Re: General tour for everyone !!!

Here take :

11493723.JPG

When I got my PC, it only had a 40GB hard drive, so when I got the money, I added a 200GB hdd to store my personal documents (pics, music, etc.), so I haven't lost my personal documents when my 40GB died.  I had it replaced by another 40GB and had Win XP reinstalled.  By the fact that the techie couldn't reinstall MS Office because of a problem with the license number, my hdd was only 1/4 full, so it wasn't a problem to install Linux on the same hard drive.  I left one half of the hdd for Windows, and the other half for Linux and the documents.

So, I now have something like this :

dev/sda (my C hard drive - 40 GB)
-- dev/sda1 -> my Windows partition (19GB)
-- dev/sda2 -> my LInux partition (12GB)
-- dev/sda3 -> my Linux documents (6GB)
-- dev/sda4 -> my linux-swap (1GB - this partition is meant to be used as extra RAM when the RAM is full)

dev/sdb (my D hard drive - 200 GB)
- dev/sda1 -> all my personal documents, accessible by both Windows and Linux (200GB)


Now I began to install the softwares I need for my usual work : gFTP, Inkscape, lamp (linux version of wamp), and I also installed the codecs to listen to my music.
