    did i install the system right - did i make good use of hdd


    hello dear Linux-experts, here on devshed.


    first of all many many thanks for the answer - great to see this community alive - this forum is very very supportive.

    the notebook; HP Notebook hp 14 r 103ng - 500 GB HDD, intel pentium n 3450 a 2.16 ghz
    and this processor is supposed to make teribble errors :: the system is also called bay trail -

    now i have had to install opensuse 13.2 on this notebook - since this notebook is affected by a very very serious bug -

    just installed tumbleweed with kernel 4.4.2.1 on this new HP Notebook - see the signature. But i recognized that the shutdown-process does not work at all. The notebook does not shut down properly. In other words - i cannot turn off the sytem ....
    it freezes all.

    by the way; this also happened with

    - openSuse Leap 42.1
    - ubuntu version 15.10


    funny: only with OpenSuse 13.2 it worked well?!

    see more on this topic here -in this thread: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...l-freezing-100

    so i finally have installed opensuse 13.2 - see the arrangement of the partition -

    note: i will try out other installations - in order to find out - if i am able to run other installations too.
    Goal: opensuse 13.2 is the main installation - and others should be tested.


    Question - is this possible with the following arrangement!?

    What are the mount points? I'm guessing sda3 is / and sda4 is /home?

    It looks fine to me. Typical boot/swap/data layout. But installing another operating system is not going to help you much if your laptop has hardware problems.
