Ubuntu 11.10 how to install without seperate swap partition?
Im Dual booting ubuntu with xp... i already have everything else setup, and previously had it dual booting on an extended partition. Nutshell-I have to remove the extended partition but that only leaves me with 1 primary left for ubuntu. which i dont mind... But how do i Install ubuntu so it doesnt try to automatically create an extended swap partition? Not sure if it will i just no last time i didn't manually creat the mount points for the partitions it created its own swap part.
1. what should i label the mount point for the primary partition i want to do this? ( / )? or (/root)?
2. will ubuntu automatically try creating a extended swap? if so how do i stop it from doing so and modifying any of my other primary partitions? I found links for properly creating a swap file which is more then adequit for my needs, however the tutorial assumes ubuntus already installed instead of starting from scratch.
3. setup info, Xp is on first primary, and other primarys also contain data, ubuntu will be installed on 4th primary(last).
I know linux can easily install on extended partitions, i had it there befor but just fyi for my current needs i have to have no extended partition.
Need any other info feel free to ask. Thx
