    Installing Fedora 36 with separate "\home": Should I use which FileSystem, ext4 or btrfs ?

    Hello, I intend to install Fedora Workstation 36 with a separate home partition. I have a 120GB SSD, a 1TB HDD, and 8GB RAM, so I am thinking of doing the partitioning as follows: SDD: \efi (± 500MB) \ (the rest) HDD: \swap (± 4GB) \home (1TB) (swap is on HDD because Fedora uses now zram, so...

    Pre-Linux GRUB trouble

    First off, need to say my PC is a mess (later). Have an HP Pavillion tower desktop, was running Windows 7 until using a utility on the Registry and only shows the "GRUB loading ... grub rescue". Haven't got round to dual-booting Mint or Manjaro (or both) on it just yet. What I meant by my...

    File system problems

    I am running Ubuntu 16.4LTS AMD64. When I installed the system I made the Linux partition only 25 gig (mistake, I know but thats done.) Now I want to resize the partitions and G-Parted won't let me. I get this message for the windows NTFS partition, and I can't resize it...
