Debian :: Mount NTFS Partitions In /etc/fstab?

Jun 29, 2010

Using: Debian Lenny. I want to mount 2 NTFS partitions in my /etc/fstab file, so that I needn't manually mount them when I want to use them. One of the partitions is the primary partition on the same hard disk as my Debian /, /home, and /swap partitions. The other is a 2nd internal hard disk.

a) Should I use ntfs-3g instead of ntfs as the /etc/fstab filesystem? I want to be able to read and write to the partitions as a user and not just as root.

b) I have read on the forum that "mounting NTFS partitions through fstab is not a great idea" - I thought that any dangers of doing so were ancient history. Why would it not be a good idea?

c) Which options should I use?

d) If I use 'user' instead of 'users' so that one specific user (me) can use the partitions, how do I specify which user name? (The man page is annoyingly unclear about this).

General :: Setup Fstab To Automatically Mount NTFS Partitions - GUI To Set The Mount Permissions?

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.

1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?

2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?

Debian :: Auto Mount Ntfs Partitions On Startup?

Jul 12, 2011

Nautilus mounts NTFS partitions when I acces them, and before mounting, it asks for root password. Is there a method to auto-mount ntfs partitions on Debian startup, without requiring root password each time they are automatically mounted ? And without installing additional packages.

General :: Automatically Mount Partitions Under /media Instead Of Clicking Without Fstab

Mar 29, 2010

I'm using Kubuntu 9.10. Partitions get listed in the sidebar when I open the File Manager, but they don't get mounted under /media until I click on the entries. I do not want to use /etc/mtab and mount them under folders I create in /mnt; would prefer if there was a way to mount the partitions without Kubuntu waiting for me to click on the names.

General :: Mount NTFS Partition Deeper In File System With Fstab?

Mar 15, 2010

I'm dual booting with Windows 7 and would like to have my windows 7 user folder mount when I boot.

After some looking around I edited /etc/fstab to add the following line:

This works. But it mounts the windows partition from the root level. I'd like to just mount C:UsersFHSM (/Users/FSHM) to /mnt/windows.

I'm trying to get it so that when I click on the windows drive I get my windows user folder instead of having to click through from C: to get to it.

I'm the only user on this system but if I created a second windows user would my home folder mount for that person too or does setting the user ID prevent that from happening?

Ubuntu :: Put A Line In /etc/fstab To Mount One Of Partitions With Owner And Group Not Root

Jan 9, 2010

According to a couple of different places, it's not possible for me to put a line in /etc/fstab to mount one of my partitions with owner and group not root; instead, I have to mount it in /etc/fstab, then chown & chgrp to my user. That seems ridiculously tedious and silly... is it true? I'm sure a short script could be written to get around it, but it seems obtuse for Linux not to allow that to be set in /etc/fstab.

Fedora Installation :: Editing Fstab File To Mount Ntfs Volumes Rw For User Account?

Mar 29, 2009

I have two NTFS volumes I want to automount at boot. I can't get my user account to mount them in Fedora 10. I keep getting the message that the two lines I have edited in fstab are bad. The volumes are sda2 and sda8, and the volume names are SPACELAB and Spaceman. I also need to be able to mount an NTFS usb drive from time to time. I am getting frustrated, so I have posted my fstab file below,

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Mount NTFS Partitions?

Jun 24, 2011

I first noted a few weeks ago I couldn't mount my NTFS partitions using dolphin. At the time I was having problems with windows, so I thought - naturally, they are marked as dirty, no biggie-

However, I still can't mount them and I know they are clean. I get the error: "filesystem is neither well know nor in /proc/filesystem nor in /etc/filesystems" which is strange since I can mount just fine in the console using mount -t ntfs-3g.

Ubuntu :: Mount NTFS Partitions With A Password Only?

May 4, 2010

I have U1004 dual boot with MSW7 and sometimes want to mount those NTFS partitions for mostly reading operations. Ubuntu makes it easy by a single click in Nautilus. How to change this behavior and allow mount NTFS partitions with user's password only, like sudo behavior, for example? In addition, how to mount them read-only?

Note: I mount those NTFS partitions occasionally and there is nothing in fstab about it.

I used to be able to mount my external hard drive's ntfs partition by simply clicking on it, but now I can't anymore... I know that the last time I've used it with windoze, I had to force shut the **** thing down 'cause it was frozen real good (pretty unusual right !?!).The thing is, with ubuntu it sees it and mounts it no problem.

I Just Recently Installed OpenSUSE with GNOME Desktop and was surprised to know that none of my NTFS Partiitions were mounted to the Linux File System.

Debian :: Mount In Fstab Doesn't Work

Feb 2, 2016

On my debian jessie "testing" I have set in fstab some line to mount folder located on my pc server...

When pc boot up the error is

Code:

Select allFailed to mount /mnt/Web
See 'systemctl status mnt-web.mount' for details...

Then, after logging in, if I run mount -a all works correctly...

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:DVDRW

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 :: Hget Ntfs Partitions To Ext4fs / Partition

Aug 26, 2011

I helped with the installation and put a / filesystem of around 20 GB and a /home partition of around 50 GB. He's a gaming freak and and installed lot of games in the last few days so running out of hdd space and he asked if there was a way he could take one of the ntfs partitions out and extend the / partition filesystem from 90 GB to say 220 GB. (The NTFS partition is around 100 GB).

Now one way would be to do everything (again) from scratch and put the filesystem as an lvm, another alternative googling gave me was to use gparted Live CD and extend the / filesystem . The downer seems to be that its possible gparted would mess up other partitions and realign stuff. At least that's what few of the websites I looked up and few people I talked on IRC spoke to me.

Debian Installation :: Automount Of NTFS Partitions (Jessie Old Kernel)

May 23, 2015

I've just upgraded my system and I'm having some issues to boot with the latest kernel (cf: [URL] ....)

Hopefully I can still use the previous kernel (vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-686-pae).

I'd like to watch a movie that is on an NTFS partition.

From gnome-classic, I went in Places->datas (name of my partition) and I get this error message:

Code: Select allFailed to open "/media/mb/datas".

Error when getting information for file '/media/mb/datas': Input/output error.

The result of a df -h gives me:

Code: Select all/dev/sda3      fuseblk    96G   60G   37G  63% /media/mb/datas

mb is the username I'm currently using.

Previously it was only trying to mount the partition (after asking for the root password) in /media/datas

Is it normal that now it tries to mount it only for my current user in another folder?

If I look in the /var/log/messages, I only see this:

May 22 23:53:06 Tieum-Latitude gnome-session[2092]: Thunar: Failed to open "/media/mb/datas": Error when getting information for file '/media/mb/datas': Input/output error

Ubuntu :: Mount.ntfs And Mount.ntfs-3g Reside Simultaneously?

Whilst accessing an external NTFS drive mount.ntfs takes up a lot of CPU. I am not sure if its mounting the drive using mount.ntfs or mount.ntfs-3g? How do I find out and if they coexist how do I make the default mount drive ntfs-3g?
