I have found bits of information relevant to my problem in these forums, but nothing quite simple enough and broad enough for me to follow to success I'm afraid. Apologies for covering familiar ground again.
As a newcomer I am suffering the frustrations of getting to grips with linux. I have an AAO with a 16Gb SSD and 1Gb RAM. I have got Linpus to where I want it and particularly like the speed at boot. However, I have been following KUKI and really like what I see on the live install. I have attempted a full install to my aao but have run in to issues with the disc partitioning, purely from ignorance on my part.
I would choose to have Kuki fully install itself and overwrite linpus, but I note I will end up with an ext3 file system, not ext 2 as recommended. I imagine I will also end up with a swap partition, which I believe may not be necessary given the 1Gb RAM? I guess this is because the default arrangement is geared towards HDDs. If I go for a manual install, the partitioner shows me three partitions on the disc, including swap, plus a little free space. I've not managed to reconfigure all this and make a successful install by my own devices. (I did get Kuki to boot once from the SSD, but the subsequent update process appeared to run out of install space). There is a location on the SSD for my own data files under linpus, but I choose to store my information on an additional 8Gb SD card in the left hand slot, so no danger of loosing anything (I hope).
Can anyone please point me to a concise source for the linux challenged, or offer a view on how to manually partition the SSD (sizes, mount points etc), which will allow me to make an optimum installation of Kuki. Any and all help appreciated. Thanks in advance.
