    Which packages should I actually install?

    Why would you need them later? Source files are 10 times larger than the compiled binaries they make. Source files do nothing for you (except take up space) unless you're going to compile them. Why would you need to recompile them? They are already compiled. Even if there is a specfic...

    Switched Distributions and messed up partitioning and now only have 75G instead of 1T (Fedora Workstations 32)

    Also, did you make a directory yet? mkdir /taniks (or whatever you want it to be)

    We still need to mount this disk before you can use it. fdisk /dev/sda press "N" to create a new partition. It will ask a few questions, just press [enter] to answer the questions. then press "w" to write this to the disk. That will kick you out of fdisk again. mkfs.xfs /dev/sda1 This...

    Think of a directory name that you want to mount this hard drive under... It should not have any spaces in the name. What are you going to put on this hard drive? Maybe name the directory something like car_pictures or favorite_songs or anything. Maybe just something like extra_space.

    Let's start over. fdisk /dev/sda press "g" to create a new partition table press "w" to write this to the disk. This will kick you out of fdisk and take you back to the system prompt. Let me know when you get this far. You will have a nice new empty 950GB disk now.

    In the opening post of this thread, you mentioned wanting to keeo the data you had in the popOS partitions on the other hard drive. Is this not the case? It's waaaaaaay easier to to reformat it, and add it to your existing fedora volume group if you don't care about any data on there.

    I guess we will just have to make it ourselves. mkdir /popos mount /dev/fedora_localhost-live/popos /popos

    oops, my bad not fedora_localhost_live fedora_localhost-live (dash instead of under score)

    It's already in the volume group. That's good. But it doesn't appear to have a dev-mapper path yet. Lets try vgchange -ay fedora_localhost_live and see if it will add it

    That's good, it seems it wasn't lying. Now what is output of df -h

    Interesting. Didn't expect that. Let us see if it is lying to us. What is output of pvdisplay.

    So the volume group appears to be "fedora_localhost-live" Let us see if this works. vgextend fedora_localhost-live /dev/sda3 Hopefully it won't complain about not being exported first

    Lets try this, (I've never done it without exporting it from the old volume group first) I don't think this will corrupt your disk, I believe at worst, it simply won't import the disk. First we need output from vgdisplay (in Fedora) just type... vgdisplay
