I noticed that the automatic partioning done by Fedora 17 KDE was a bit weird and now I want to set it up manually.
Currently I have partition sda1 with windows and sda5 with misc files, between them 100 GB of free space.
I want Fedora to use those 100 GB, but I have trouble setting up the partitions:
2 GB swap
5 GB boot
93 GB for root
However, I can not put three more partitions on this drive, so I need to use logical drives.
But I dont know how to set that up.
Swap probably needs to be a separate partitions, so root and boot have to share one.
Do I start with root and make boot a logical sub-drive?
Or two logical drives and then combine thm to a logical group?
There are also two device mappers and four unknown Devices labeled /dev/loop which I think are left over from older installations which I did not properly remove but simple had their partitions deleted. Not sure if those complicate things.
