Installation / Re: Partitionning and Organisation Issues

Hi thanks for the answers,
i didn't install Peppermint yet so i can't use the "inxi Fz" command (i assume it doesn't work on Windows 7? )
Actually my Partitions are :
Local Disk C : 179out of 386GB free space
Local Disk D : 60.4 out of 272GB free space (the Partition where all my games are installed, there for it's nearly full xD )
Local Disk E : 261 out of 272 GB free space (all my work is here, and as you can see it's not space consuming at all since i mainly work on soft programs using Eclipse, CodeBlocks ...and such)

i intend to install Peppermint on Dual boot with my already installed Windows 7 using the "advanced" option from the installation manager  (because -I don't know why- i don't have the option "Install alongside windows 7" even thou Windows 7 was detected as my already-running OS on my laptop)

so now i want to know how to partition my Linux System in a "Good way" to avoid futur problems due to bad partitionning (and since i'm a totally new to the partitioning thing i need some advices ^^ )
i saw some of the videos you suggested on youtube but i don't really understand what is the "swap" partition (and why does it have to be atleast the size of my RAM ?  )

SO, i'll install Peppermint on my E local disk (it's 261 GB of free space and about 30% of my hard disk's capacity so i think i'm good to go with it)
how should i partition it? or should i just install Peppermint on it directly (without dividing it on smaller partitions? )

i'll do some research on youtube but i'd really like some precise answers from you guys.

thanks in advance for the help.

Installation / Partitionning and Organisation Issues [SOLVED]
« on: October 22, 2016, 04:05:04 pm »
Hello everyone,
i'm a Windows user new to the Linux OS.
i'm using windows 7 on my laptop for over 4-5 years now, never touched the partitionning side of it since i bought my laptop (Windows 7 was installed on it).
but the things i noticed is that using windows for a long time (Installing-removing manny applications, games..etc) inevitably slower (just navigating on the internet can attract viruses and malwares that'll damage and slow down my system, and i HATE running an Anti-virus software since they make my PC even slower and having updates and scans all the time...etc)


SO... i decided to Install a Linux distro (Peppermint, since i can work/study on it and since it's very fast and not heavy resource-consuming) and to have a dual boot system with a Windows 7 on the other hand so that i can play video games.
before i take any action i'd like to have answers for a few questions :

1) What's the best software for partiton-managing on Linux (since i'll probably erase all my hard disk then install Peppermint on it first then installing dual boot windows)

2) i have 1TB (about 930GB) hard disk space, if i run on Dual boot how should i make my partitions?
 -if i run Dual boot i'll be using Peppermint mainly for work and navigating on the internet and Windows for Gaming so i guess 30% for Linux and 70% Windows?

Thanks in advance for your answers

Thanks for the replies.
i'll shrink my Windows partition and then install Peppermint to give it a try sisnce i already tried Ubuntu.

Software & Applications / Which Distro to choose & how to DualBoot
« on: October 21, 2016, 06:21:42 am »
Hello everyone,
first of all my apoligize if this is the wrong section for this kind of topics.

1) Which one should i choose ?
i want to install Linux on my Laptop but since there are many Distributions for it i really don't know which one i should choose.
i'm currently hesitating between Ubunto 16.04 LTS and PepperMint OS7 so i want you to first help to chosse whch one is better for me.

-i want to be able to program with Java,C language,and perhaps HTML/PHP
-i'll be using Linux mainly for my studies (Programming and such...) since i will have it in dual boot along with Windows 7 (which i'll use mainly for gaming).
-are the programming IDE's like Eclipse,CodeBlocks,Flex...etc available on linux (since i'm already used to use these ones on Windows 7)
- what are the main differences between Ubuntu and Peppermint that can affect my work/studies ?

2) Dual Booting :
- I currently use LinuxLive USB Creator 2.9.4 to boot the Linux OS i chose from my USB-Key but the problem i have is with partitions (i don't want to erase all my hard disk's Datafiles by commiting any installation error) so if you could give me a tutorial on how to dual boot without erasing all my data that would be Nice.

Thanks in advance for the help.
