I'm trying to install ubuntu 12.10 on am mac book pro 8.2 as a dual boot.
After disabling journaling on the mac hfs+ partition, I booted from the ubuntu mac cd and started gparted. There, I resized the hfs+ from 464 Gib to 346 Gib (second and third steps would be the creation of swap and ext4). After starting, it went through "calibrate /dev/sda2" in no time and skipped checking the filesystem (I had forgotten to install the hfsplus and hfstools package beforehand, that might be the reason).
Now, it has been stuck on the third step, "shrink file system", for 4.5 hours and it doesn't indicate any progress at all (the progress bar moves from left to right and then back again, and there is no time indicator). Is this normal behavior and should I just keep going, or did it run into some error and I just don't get any feedback?
Unfortunately, I post an image yet due to my reputation.
