^ im sorry

i wish to shrink the current partition, and create free open space, so i can install other linux distro's

i want to partition my ubuntu partition, into smaller ones, atm its one giant one, becuase of when i was installing, with those issues i just let it install on the whole drive, well now i dont want ubuntu solely on a 143Gb drive.

okay, is that better

im sorry... :frowning:

Ah... I was misled by your typo :lol:
and i want to shriek it.
Anyway, get a GParted bootable CD instead of running GParted in Ubunutu, that should do the trick.

GParted -- LiveCD

^okaydokay thank you, yeah i dont like those words that are typos but are real words lol

well, i tried sabayon, meh, its KDE, i dont like it so much, and ubuntu is getting compiz fusion next month, i can wait.

i did however open the GParted on sabayon, and i started to shrink it, but it took too long, i guess i should start partitioning at 11:00PM lol

side note, i looked and looked, and failed in compiling kiba-dock, but i found "gDesklets" which i am happy with :smile:
