Hey Guys,

I'm looking to start a podcast and would like to use AV Linux after reading this guide:


I am not very tech literate and having trouble figuring out how to add a 20GB hard drive partition. Any specific steps or point in the right direction would be highly appreciated!


Model: ATA TOSHIBA THNSNK12 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 128GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B

It looks like you already have 36.5 GB free at the end of your Fedora installation-- #6 in your list. Does the installer give you the option to install into free space?

I had thought that I had set up Fedora to use that space in addition to the 89.4GB partition, I could have very well messed that part up though - how do I confirm it is empty and not assigned to Fedora?

Here is a screenshot from fedora's Disks program:

the 36.5GB has been assigned to Fedora as far as I can tell. There is 0 free space on it.

Still very confused on how to free up space on this partition then create a new partition in this space to install AV Linux.
