I was using the parted command and i was trying to create a new partition using the mkpart option. While i was doing this it asked for the partition start and end.

Now i believe i know what the start and end is, the start and end is esentially the starting and the end is just the ending of the partition on the disk or in other words the destination from the start and ending.

So as this happend i dont know how to calculate the start and ending for a new partition, so my question is:

  • How do i calculate the start and end?
  • use print free to get an idea of where to put partitions, and perhaps unit mib for sanity. – frostschutz May 8 at 7:10
  • But what would i put for the start and end value for a 30gb partition fot exmaple? – Qasim May 8 at 7:19

    Use gparted, it is graphical and easier to use. – ctrl-alt-delor Jun 17 at 22:52
