I hope somebody can help me with a partition problem.

Hi Joep.
That is strange. Are you sure you haven't used up all the space for
the partition?

Have you shrunk the big logical partition that you have now,
so there is someplace to put a new logical partition?


Everybody, thanks for your answers. Especially doug and Juan! You hit
the nail on the head!.
I stupidly had forgotten to make the extended the size of the rest of
the disk. A stupid beginners error!. I only assume that the old brain
played me a trick.

Thanks a lot. The partitions are completed.

Ensure the swap partition is running. You can disable it from gParted.
