How to idetify the disk and partiton - in Linux?



  • Small issue while downloading / updating Qt Maintenance tool.

    Is there a way to have the installer to identify the disk and partition on multiboot / multidisk / multipartitons system ?

    PS Why is installer having issues with TEMPORARY files anyway ?
    If the disk in question is operating system partition , what is wrong using "swap file " in Linux for TEMPORARY storage ? I have plenty of free space if I knew WHICH disk needs it .


  • Moderators

    It probably tries to write to /tmp/.

    Why are 119 GB required? Have you selected everything from the installer? Only select the parts of Qt you need and this number should go waaaay down.
