i am a new user to linux, i installed debian on dual boot with windows 7but now i am unable to access the ntfs drives used by windows originally from the debian OSi am wondering what could be the problem and how can i solve it
i would like to have all my ntfs drives mount @ start up here is the command im currently useing sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/D -o forcei have made the folders D E F etc now i know that the command for starting restarting and stoping samba changed in 10.04 so did something change with mounting ntfs drives
I use Ubuntu 11.04 (gnome) and have a ntfs partiton that shows up in the "places" menu that is normally in the gnome panel. But I think that partition isn't mounted till I click on the entry in this menu (when I want to access it from any other place, shortcuts for example, that doesn't work). How can I correctly mount all partitions I want on startup? Recently I tried something in the /etc/fstab file but don't know if this is correct...
I have brought an ipod of my friends with a lot of movies and i was then running on windows. The Whole sys was infected and I reloaded the windows operating system but it worked fine only upto two restarts. Then I started and completely successfully installed fedora core 10 i386. I Have very much important information in the windows hard drives. Please tell me anyone how to mount these partitions from the beginning.
I have a dual boot setup with a fair amount of files in my windows volume. I noticed that the Ubuntu 10.4 GNOME version (at least) does not auto mount my NTFS drive. Of course as I have seen from various post this gets annoying when opening up a program that loads previous files before I for ex, click the '110GB FileSystem' icon from Nautilus or similar...that seems to mount it for me then... I want my 110GB NTFS volume to mount automatically so I dont have to do this process everytime I reboot.
I found a post on the forum (the latest one I could find) below that recommends installing ntfs-config. The post is from May 2008 but mentions 10.10 (via edits) so I'm confused and wondering if there is an easier/default way..or this is still the way to go? After several screw ups editing system files manually, Im very cautious about doing it in this case because its a work computer and frankly the uninsttall or editing the fstab manually worries me.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS x64 on my computer. This also the first time I'm working with a linux distribution, so I'm sorry if I don't understand everything.Yesterday Ubuntu was running perfectly. Today I tried to install nvidia driver, and after that I started rythmbox. That was the moment I noticed my computer wouldn't mount NTFS drives anymore. What is weird cause yesterday it did mount them, and I didn't change anything (atleast I think I don't). The exact error Message is:Unable to mount location
So I searched the internet and they said to other people they should check System>Administration>Users and groups.So I did check it and it said account type: custom, when I clicked on the button change, which was next to it, It didn't do a thing.
I have recently tried to switch from windows to kubuntu. So far nobody can help me on the problem that kubuntu keeps asking password (kdesudo - please input your password to mount this device) in order to mount anything with ntfs on it. This is despite i have made needed changes in order for this operation to be possible without rootilleges (recompiled ntfs-3g with internal fuse, set the setuid bit/setguid bit,ded user to disks, gave user permissions to mountpoint). I can do mount /dev/... and it works without sudo but the dolphin, or "removable media" thingie in system settings still will ask a password to mount anything with ntfs on it.
So, therefore a question arises. I can of course do all the mounting manually (automount on boot does not help since my external hard takes time to "boot up" when it's first accessed and that is when system boot takes 10 seconds instead of 1 second and starts complaining about "drive not ready, try manual mounting"So, i would like to have a simple gui something that can mount or dismount (run mount and umount for me effectively) removable or internal disks. Could someone advise some program that he uses? suppose there are plenty such around since the operation is very common...Maybe even a file managertead of dolphin)? Preferably one that does renaming li
I have two 1TB HDD's formatted in NTFS, one has windows and other stuff i use even on linux and the other is all media. i can mount them easy, but this is a minor annoyance because everytime i log in i must type in my password. is there no way to have them auto mounted on startup?
How to mount multiple external HDD's. I'd like to link or mount the music, torrents, and general files from several external hard drives and apply permissions (in some cases I only want the mount or link to be read only).
My setup: - Seagate Dockstar running Debian squeeze (it's headless so I don't have a gui running) - Two external HDD's with one partition on each (250GB and 400GB)
What I'd like to accomplish: 1. Mount the external HDD's to /media/HDDs as read/write (this is already working using udev and autofs and it's available in samba) 2. I'd like the MUSIC directories on both external HDD's to show up under the same mount point. In other words I want the MUSIC folders (from both HDD's) to appear as one large library of music. And I only want this to be readonly. It will be used as the library for mpd and/or squeezebox. 3. Mount a directory used to download torrents to. I'll probably pick on HDD as the target for torrent dowloads. But let me know if you have any other ideas regarding this.
Since I have the first one done, how would I accomplish 2 & 3?
I have booted up from openSUSE 11.3 on a USB stick. When i go into Dolphin (the file explorer) and try to open a harddrive, I get the error:
Code: An error occurred while accessing 'MyHardDrive', the system responded: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy: org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed auth_admin_keep_always <-- (action,result)
Does someone know how to reconfigure this? I have three hard drives.
1. Sata 1TB. It has Windows xp and ubuntu 10.10 on it 2. old 30G drive. It has ubuntu 10.04 on it 3. Old 120G with ubuntu 10.04
I installed the oses on each drive by disconnecting the others. So each drive has a boot record, and I can choose by pressing F11 at boot. All ubuntus can see and mount the NTFS partition except the one I installed last. It's on the 120G drive.

I'm working on creating a bootable Linux CD to distribute a sandbox environment to customers that will work on multiple PCs.One requirement of this environment is that we do not want the user to have any access to the underlying hard drives in the computer to prevent any accidental and/or malicious damage. I can prevent the disks from automounting with a few udev custom rules, but is there any way to prevent/block the user from manually mounting the hard drives after boot up.
I am trying to mount an external USB hard drive. I'm using Debian Lenny 5. I tried to right-click on the hard drive and then select the mount command inside the gnome desktop environment but it gives me an error. Is there an easy way to mount and unmount this hard drive? The hard drive itself is formatted from the factory in NTFS. I'm going to leave it in this file format is a need to use it with Windows machines as well.
Just installed opensuse 11.3 Kdeversion on my laptop. Before installing it on live mode i had a problem of accessing my other drives (NTFS, FAT32 and EXT4) which said HAL system policy...etc mounting error. I could access all drives with root privilege. I thought problem will be solver once i install opensuse on my system. How ever i was really disappointed after seeing the same problem post install. Googled around for the solution and got this link
After this the problem got worse now i am not able to see any of the drives in the side panel. Gone through many forum and posts all discuss about external USB HDD.
I have a computer, the one I am on now, with Ubuntu 10.10, it should be completely updated... and I can network with other computers, I can access Windows XP and 7 shared locations on other computers, and I can also get Ubuntu on other computers to access this computer's shared files.What I can't do, however, is share my hardrives that are on this computer, I have tried sharing them in /media/ and etc, but it is not working, apparently you have to mount them in some mystical way.
Another problem is getting Windows machines to access Ubuntu computers on the network - which I believe is a Windows problem, so I can figure that out some other time, but importantly, I want to be able to share my hardrives over the network.
If someone can give me some instructions to mounting and sharing hardrives(internal), and even my DVD-Drives, and portable USB devices, would also be fantastic - since, in Windows you can just right click, "share", and it's done.. It is a very useful thing to have, and I don't want to use Windows on this computer anymore, but I have no choice, really, if I can't share my storage to the other computers.
I am writing as yesterday, my fourth hard drive within 2 years crashed. Is that normal? One was crashing 2 years ago, one in winter 2009 and 2 just within 2 weeks. What can be the reason for so many crashes? I heard maybe the power supply? How can I find out if that's broken? The voltages at least in BIOS seem normal. The SATA controller? How do I know if its broken? Can I just but one PCI-E card with SATA adapters? Is it the motherboard? Theres not much more in my computer... As well, its wired that my good-old 160 GB drive never crashed, only constantly the bigger ones. Here some typical error code from mount and dmesg:
Code: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error
setup amd64bit created a live DVD of the 11.4 64 bit burn pope inside went to install put selected the second option because putting it on a 60G vertex ocz super fast drive. used the entire drive for ubuntu. have mirror dual monitor installed the proprietary drivers from amd.go to Ubuntu software center type additional drives install and install the proprietary drivers from ati you should be able to figure that out then lauch the ati catalyst control and setup your 1 and 2 monitors so that they are correct.
ok now install Wine ubuntu software thingy tip wine don't do the beta right now im stuck on installing starcraft and mounting the other hard drives will get back to you and make a better guide on this.oh by the way if your Internet isn't connecting automatically you might need to set your IPV4 setting manually this is because you have set your router with DHCP disabled. Code needed for install:
PLAY ON LINUX is working for SC2 Sois crashes though and during install sont font was missing neede to guesse correct button to install.
More useful code
To mount the drive ro (read only):Make a mount point.mount First open a terminal.Then type these commands (assuming the partition is /dev/hdb1):
sudo mkdir /mnt/music sudo mount /dev/hdb1 /mnt/music -t ntfs
Note: if the partition is not /dev/hdb1 you will need to adjuxt accordingly.To make the mount automatic at boot you need to edit fstab:
sudo gedit /etc/fstab
Add this line:
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/music ntfs auto,users,ro 0 0
Again, adjust your partition accordingly if needed. Copy and paste the contents of /etc/fstab (in your next post) and type in a terminal "sudo fdisk -l" (w/o quotes) and copy and paste the output.
