It is possible create swap parition AFTER linux installation.
please look it this.
Disk geometry for /dev/hda5: 0.000-19100.689 megabytes
Disk label type: loop
Minor Start End Filesystem Flags
1 0.000 19100.689 ext3
(parted) mkpartfs ext3 linux-swap 0 1500
Error: Can't create any more partitions.
its possible to create SWAP partition after Linux Installation but i think you have created Four Primary Partitions already.
its not possible to create more than 4 Primary Partitions. Create an Extended Partition and create Logical Partition in it. format logical partition as SWAP. there is no limit for the number of Logical Partitions in a harddisk.
thank you for reply.
but how can create logical parition. because i am very newbie for linux..
can you give me any example or link...?
one more >>> i already have windows on some machine.
post the output of fdisk -l command.
