Hello! I know I am not using endeavor os but from what I could gather its basically arch, I use arch linux, I don’t wanna post in the arch linux forum because newbies like me are gonna get destroyed there, here is my issue:
Basically I use kde with arch linux, I noticed in my gnome disk manager I have 2 partition for my main nvme drive, 1 of 20GB and one with the rest of the partition (About 978 GB) my issue is both of them are in the same drive while the 20 GB display the full amount, my kde system is bugged out and my qemu virtual machine does not want to install window 10 because it think my partition is full when its not, can you help me fix this issue? Here is the screenshot:
Please let me know if you need a specific type of log and give me the commands/wiki for it
Btw sorry for not being accurate in what im explaining, I have never experienced any issues like that and I did not find any wiki about it and how to fix this, might be my choice of words that are poor. Thank you for your help!
Why not change qemu’s default storage location from /var/lib/libvirt/images to somewhere else? /var/lib/libvirt/images is obviously on your root partition. And if there’s 20GB left in the root partition, it’s probably a bad idea to install the image there anyway. According to Microsoft, Windows 10 64-bit requires at least 20GB of disk space, which means you’ll be left with no space on your root partition after the installation. I doubt your Arch installation can continue to function after that unless you remove a bunch of packages to clear up space.
I also do not quite understand the title of your post. Can you clarify what you mean by partition being in double?
After that, shut down the system, plug the usb into the system, then boot it up again. From the system’s boot menu, select the USB with EOS as the boot media. That will take you right into Endeavour’s live environment.
Inside the live environment, open up Gparted and select the drive you wish to operate on. Since your partitions are adjacent to each other, you can merge them into one.
Hey! I am inside the live usb, this might sound really dumb but if how do I merge them without loosing the data? I know you can merge them by making them unallocated but I fear its gonna wipe my data on both partitions. I have no ideas how to merge them together and boot my system without loosing anything, got any clue? Yet again sorry for being a newbie, I have never done this before
Again. I’d like to remind you to back up your data before doing anything. To combine the partitions, you use Gparted’s merge option. This is possible because your partitions are right next to each other. Gparted will take care of moving your data around and then merging the two partitions.
The thing is even on my main pc and my iso I cannot backup / it just throw me “permission denied” for a lot of folder but not all of them, do you know how to fix this? Will a “Sudo chown user:user -R /” fix it?
No. Don’t do this. If you really want to gain access to the root partition, you can perform an arch-chroot. Then again, if you want to back up your root directory, just copying them somewhere isn’t really the way to go. You are better off using a tool like rsync
