Did you run fdisk with "sudo" ?

Everything looks OK. Just reboot, than Kernel will use the partition table.

@polikuo
yes with sudo as described in the readme.

--

I rebooted, assuming the partitioning went ok.

Then trying to load the GUI. Get this error. This is the same error I got when I treid this before the partitioning, so I guess the partitioning did not go down so well.

You must delete the previous partial downloads of packages.

What is the free size on /mnt/mmcblk0p2? Did you resize the partition after reboot?

It should be in uppercase, it matters.
Code: [Select]

And also as the README explains that you have to run the point 4.
As also @bmarkus also suggests.

- Did you resize the partition after reboot?

4) After reboot expand file system to the new partition boundaries with
   typing the following command as root:

   sudo resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p2

@bmarkus
don't know how to delete previous partly downloads.
 
free size on /mnt/mmcblk0p2. Do you mean start 69648 end 93119?

@patrikg @bmarkus
I now tried to do the resize. It tells me it did nothing. It says in the readme  to enter the same end-value, but also that is should be bigger. So what to enter? I used the same and after the resize command it tells me it did no do anything.

@polikuo
I tried with the correct spelling and same result. I guess the other issues need to be done proper before it can load gui.

Did you unmount all the filesystems first ?
A simpler way would be adding "base" to your boot code.
Then redo all the partitioning and resizing with sudo.
Good luck  :)
