I have an issue, not necessarily a problem. I have a disk, which had Ubuntu 11.04, a swap, a big NTFS and some free space. When 11.10 came out, I did a fresh install and recently I've deleted the 11.04 partition since I didn't needed it anymore. I've noticed that my partition table is a little bit messy. Especially that I seem to have 2 primary empty partitions at the beginning and end of the partition table and my swap /dev/sdb5 seems to reside in an extended container /dev/sdb2 (probably old swap from 11.04).
Here is a screenshot from GParted:
Any way I could make some order in here?
