wts difference btween partition types

Postby farhanksa » Sat Mar 15, 2003 3:20 am

aoa
wts diff btwen linux native or etx2 ..welll i think both r same but coonfusion is does both have the partition id = 83
i mean does linuxnative..ext2 or ext 3 have same ID

problem took place when i was installing the rh 7.3 after installing 7.1
it says that swap already exists .....it was not letting me go forward with out formating the swap partiton..........
i first wanted to make the seprate swap for 7.3 then i planed to use the same swap of 7.1

another q? is wt the other use of the swap other than virtaull memory...swapping..temp caching...kind of temp ram....................io think when i reboot then swap initializes from start its a kind of volatile partition
does the 7.1 and 7.3 have different swap allocation table ....wts the reason 7.3 was insisting me to fromat it under 7.3?????????
