I have an Ubuntu 12.04 machine running as a VM and I would like to create a 'data' directory with the unallocated space left on
/dev/sda. I managed to create a
/dev/sda3 partition on the available space, but I cannot see any way of defining a mount point for the new space. Is it possible to do this on a running system?
Once I have created the partition with gparted, the system looks like this:
But if I query it from a terminal,
/dev/sda3 won't show up:
