Debian :: HDA5 Cannot Be Mounted NTFS 3G

Oct 8, 2010

I've carelessly installed grub on hda5 instead of hda, using:
# grub-install /dev/hda5
And now my hda5 cannot be mounted with ntfs-3g. Here the error message 'mount' gives:
Failed to mount '/dev/hda5': Invalid argument
The device '/dev/hda5' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.

As far as I know, grub-install rewrites the 1st sector of the device, and I've been reading this guide on recover the 1st sector of an NTFS partition. The problem is that the Disk Probe tool is available in Windows only. Is there any similar software in Debian to do the same thing (i.e allows us to edit sectors of the hard drives available in the computer)? Any easier tool / method to restore the NTFS partition without read and write sectors manually.

Debian Configuration :: External NTFS Drive Not Mounted Writable By Default?

Feb 20, 2010

When I plug in my external USB Hard drive which is formatted as a single NTFS partition, it is recognized and mounted automatically, a nautilus window pops open. Unfortunately it is not writable. The reason is: the partition is mounted "ntfs" (which lacks write support) instead of "ntfs-3g". This is the output of mount after plugging in the drive:

$ mount | grep sdc1
/dev/sdc1 on /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE type ntfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077)

I want this partition to be writable by just plugging it in.

The partition should not have any errors because a) I fsck'ed it windows and b) mounting it manually works:

$ sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/disk_/
$ mount | grep sdc1
/dev/sdc1 on /media/disk_ type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096)
$ devkit-disks --mount-fstype ntfs-3g --mount /dev/sdc1
Mounted /org/freedesktop/DeviceKit/Disks/devices/sdc1 at /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE
$ mount | grep sdc1
/dev/sdc1 on /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
$ gnome-mount -nbtd /dev/sdc1
$ mount | grep sdc1
/dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)

How can I get ntfs drives to be mounted as writable by default, preferrably without having to modify fstab?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Prevent That Particular NTFS Partition From Automatically Being Mounted

Aug 21, 2010

I have an NTFS partition problem which prevents me from installing openSUSE on my desktop computer. It's not a trouble with installation, it's a security issue relating to NTFS.I have a desktop running XP exclusive, but wish to also go dual boot but can not because I have created a NTFS partitoin on my HD wich I don't wish others to know about.After booting window$, I am able to successfully unmount the partition using Diskpart, which is a command line program within that OS. Once unmounted, it is effectively hidden from those who might be snooping until I manually remount it. Essentially I remove the drive letter which makes it inaccessible to Windows.

(Yes I know a person with proper skills can easily find it, but that's not applicable in my case for those who would look)If I install openSUSE which I desperately desire, it will automatically locate and mount the NTFS partition I wish to hide, making it easily accessible to anyone booted up in SUSE.Changing the attributes to the associated files to "hidden" is not an option. I need that secret partion to remain unknown.How can I hide, deny access to, or prevent that particular NTFS partition from automatically being mounted in Suse? Once that security issue is resolved I look forward to using Suse again, like the other people do in our home.

Ubuntu :: Stuck Ntfs Partition Mounted + Kded Crashes?

Sep 17, 2010

I have a windows partition mounted that will not allow me to load my kubuntu 10.10 meerkat. i can enter an older kernal but my older kernal says cant contact kded and all my kde apps will not work such as wireless networking and autp ip configurations. although i can run the internet in this kernal wired however manually putting my ip and other numbers in for wireless connection fails. all other kernals do not load because they say i have a ntfs drive mounted. so my question is how can i unmount this drive and make my kernal work again or how can i fix kded from crashing on my second kernal so i can use that one. i have already tried sudo unmount /media/windows and other simular commands i also tried a mounting app and reinstalling kubunt desktop also check disk on windows with clean shut down does not work either.

Networking :: Programs Cannot Create Temp Files On Nfs-mounted NTFS File System?

Jun 14, 2010

I have an NTFS file system nfs-automounted on our RedHat servers. Users can read and write to the file system no problem, and can create new files, edit them, and delete them to their heart's content. The only issue is that utilities such as "dos2unix" cannot create temporary working files:

$ dos2unix events.0818.dat
dos2unix: converting file events.0818.dat to UNIX format ...
Failed to open output temp file: Operation not permitted
dos2unix: problems converting file events.0818.dat

This isn't limited to "dos2unix"; any other utility that creates a temporary working file gets the same problem. If I copy the file to a local file system like /tmp, it works fine. Here's the kicker: this works fine on Solaris systems. I can take the "dos2unix" utility over to a Solaris system that has that exact same NTFS file system automounted via NFS, and it works. No issues creating temporary working files at all.

Debian Installation :: Critical Bug Of "mount -t Ntfs" Cause NTFS Partition Broken

May 2, 2010

About dual boot system with winxp and lenny.

Storage information:
1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100
1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133
SATA:WD 1000
2nd primary:DVD
2nd secondary:DVD±RW

Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.

info about lenny setup:
1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap
2.Every partition is XFS except swap.

At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.

Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.

But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.

After many times of trying.
I solved the problem by the following way.
1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0).
2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1)
After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0).
3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot.
windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.

The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.

Debian Hardware :: Change Where USB HD Is Mounted

Feb 6, 2015

I've been scouring the net and I'm sure it's something simple but here's my problem. I have a BeagleBone Black running Debian from a uSD card. I also have a 1TB WD My Passport external HD. If I have the external drive plugged in when I boot it is mounted under /media/My Passport it is formated NTFS since it was being used for windows. Being that I'm planning on eventually planning on making this a nas/owncloud device mounting at boot is fine but I would like to mount it under another directory. I've looked in /etc/rc.local and /etc/fstab and it does not mention that drive in either place and autofs is not installed.
