  • Help with config_4-30.sh when installing VB

    I am installing VB from scratch on a 32Gb SSD
    Image installation goes smoothly with no prblems .
    I then update with
    Code:
    dnf -y update
    and finally run
    Code:
    config_4-30.sh
    The script runs with errors, (which I did not copy and therefore I am unable to transcribe without corrupting the present installation once again) and tells me to reboot before proceeding. When I reboot the system hangs after the inital menu. I intend to add an externad HD for storage later when the installation is finished and stable.
    Presently with only the 32Gb SSD fdsik -l shows
    Code:
    Device Start End Sectors Size Type
    /dev/sda1 2048 4095 2048 1M BIOS boot
    /dev/sda2 4096 618495 614400 300M Linux filesystem
    /dev/sda3 618496 749567 131072 64M Linux swap
    /dev/sda4 749568 8175615 7426048 3.6G Linux filesystem
    Can someone point me in the right direction please?

    Maybe it might be that after a 32GB drive is formatted that it now only has 29.8GB of free space left on it so a 30GB OS partition can't be made as there isn't 30GB of free space left. Try:
    Code:
    config_4-25.sh
    or
    Code:
    config_4-20.sh
    Let us know if that was it or if we need to look elsewhere.

      Thank you Transporter. Spot on. That was indeed the problem!
      To help anyone with a similar problem here are the steps I've taken
      1)
      Code:
      find / -name config_4-30.sh
      2) Edited config_4-30.sh and changed reference to 30G to 25G
      Code:
      nano /usr/local/sbin/config_4-30.sh
      3) Saved file as config_4-25.sh
      4) Changed directory to where file resides
      Code:
      cd /usr/local/sbin
      5) Gave config_4-25.sh execute permissions
      Code:
      chmod a+x config_4-25.sh
      6) Successfully ran the script. Et voila, all is well!

        Another option would be to just use

        Code:
        config_4-fill.sh
        This will fill any sized drive.
