installing bodhi alongside lubuntu
Posted 02 January 2015 - 03:15 PM
I downloaded the iso, have a bootable usb and have booted into my system using the usb.
At the installation, I chose "install Bodhi alongside ubuntu"
I am then taken to a screen which shows two partitions - each approximately half my hard drive size (one is just under 150GB and the other just over)
I am assuming that these will be the two home partitions of each OS, which will share the swap and boot partitions.
I can resize the partitions, but do not know which of the partition - the first or second one - that Bodhi will install on.
At present I would prefer to use a bit more space for Lubuntu.
Can you tell me which is the one that Bodhi will install one, so I can resize accordingly

You should see something like
/dev/sda2 on /That means that in this case partition 2 of sda is the boot partition ( / is the system root) IF there is an extra home it will say /home somewhere.
Its the opposite, they can share a home partition but not the boot.
I am assuming that these will be the two home partitions of each OS, which will share the swap and boot partitions
If you want to be sure that no mistake is done choose MANUAL partitioning.
You just need to resize the existing lubuntu partition, make a new one between that and enter "/" as mount point.
Protip: do you know why you have a swap? If you dont know how to use it you just waste space, delete it.
