I've got a Desktop System that Automounted Two NTFS partitions in F10 so I could declare them SAMBA Shares and have my other XP and Vista Machine Access them whether my dual boot machine ran XP or F10. Now I've switched to F11 and cannot get the NTFS Partitions to Automount at boot. If I browse with COMPUTER and let the system mount the NTFS partitions once it is running the mount command returns the following output:
I believe I need to modify /etc/fstab but cannot get the syntax correct to save my life.
I know nothing about linux. But my friend says linux is good. So, I kept a copy of fedora core 10 i386. My fiend has a lot of movies about 100 in his ipod. So, I took it. It contains lot of viruses and I opened the ipod in windows but my windows has malfunctioned due to the virus. So, I have installed the fedora core 10 i386. I have some important information in the windows ntfs partitions. How do i mount those ntfs partitions.
until recently, they did fstab mount quite happily, but now, they don't
the error I get is:
Code: Mountall mount /media/win7  terminated with status 21 My fstab has not changed but here it is: Code: /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 vfat noauto 0 0 UUID=da252821-a30d-415b-84cb-adca92be5b72 / ext4 defaults 0 1
Oh if I make the windows drive the first avail, then it boots just fine.
I've recently installed Arch on my main PC, and I decided to use Xfce4 desktop environment as appose to gnome that I use on my laptop. Firstly, I had to search round for an icon theme to get any of the icons working (they were all just papers with red crosses in them to start with), which I think is taking lightweight a bit too far :P, but just my opinion.Now i've got that sorted I turned to the problem of auto-mounting partitions. I'm having some trouble getting HAL to auto-mount my NTFS partitions which have my documents and music on. They are NTFS because i've got dual boot windows, and had windows before Archlinux so NTFS was the logical fs type to use. I think HAL is auto mounting dvd's etc. (can't be sure as I aren't in Arch at the minute)I can mount the NTFS partitions manually using:mount -t ntfs /dev/sda(number from 1 through 3) /mnt/sda(1 through 3)
However, I can only access this via root, so I carried out: mchmod scott.scott /mnt/sda(1-3)or something similar and that works fine, so I know they can be mounted successfully. I've tried auto-mounting them using fstab but can't seem to get this working, and I would rather not have fstab auto-mount them, I would rather let HAL sort all that out for me.I have checked that dbus, hal, consolekit and xf86-input-evdev are all installed (although im not sure what xf86-input-evdev does).Has anyone got any ideas why its not auto-mounting the NTFS partitions. My laptop mounts the NTFS windows partition fine using gnome.
I have installed Redhat Enterprise Linux Server 5 on my laptop. I have also installed Windows 7 Operating system on the laptop. I want to access windows 7 created ntfs partitons on RHEL 5 server. I tried installing the following rpm's on the rhel5 for accessing the ntfs partitiins.
I am doing major deployment of opensuse 313 pcs from windows to opensuse. I am having a problem that I have to keep 2 ntfs partitions intact will deleting the partition that has windows. Now everything goes well, opensuse installs but the problem is that I cannot give user full rights to ntfs folders. I have used graphical file permission methods n terminal chown n chmod methos but still permissions revert back to root.
When i use the "Places" menu to try to access the other partitions on the same hard-drive i get a pop-up box asking me for the Root user password. Is there any way to mount it without? The normal user is now in the sudoers group but really i don't think i should be asked for authentication at all?
I am new to Linux platform and have installed RHEL 6 on my computer. I have gone through different posts on websites regarding how to mount windows drive on to the Linux file system.Here are few results of my trial where results are slightly overwhelming for a guy like me:
1. Mounting NTFS file system using mount commandAs a su-) " $mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /media/MyFilesystem"
Output: error: unrecognised file system ntfs
2. I followed step by step instructions of installing Fuse and ntfs-3g_ntfsprogs but had no luck:
while using this command for the installation of for FUSE-0.9(which I guess prepares files for installation) I am getting this error : " Command use: ./configure --exec-prefix=/; make;make install"
Error: "Checking Kernel source directory.../usr.src/kernels/2.6.32-71.e16.x86_64...Checking Kernel source version.......Not found " Configure error: cannot determine the version of the Linux kernel source.Please configure the kernel before running this script.
Woooh , as u can see my Linux version is mentioned in that message so can anyone lemme know whether this issue is because of the incompatibility of Fuse with my version of Linux or am I suppose to make some changes in the command itself.
I tried ntfs and ntfs-3g but the result is the same I can mount root but I would like to be able to mount as a user. When I try to mount as a user I get
Unprivileged user can not mount NTFS block devices using the external FUSE library. Either mount the volume as root, or rebuild NTFS-3G with integrated FUSE support and make it setuid root. Please see more information at [URL] Before installing ntfs-3g I was able to mount as a user but there was no rw permission. Any way to mount an ntfs partition as a user without suid as the message said?
My computer has 2 O.S.- WindowsXP and Fedora13, and also two 500GB Hard Disks. For HD1 Partition1 is NTFS, a few FAT partitions and last one is Fedora13. HD2 has 2 NTFS of equal size. Fedora13 always showed NTFS partitions on HD1 as 30GB HD, FAT partitions correctly and HD2 as a single 500GB HD with the contents of 1st partition of this HD i.e. contents of 2nd partition of HD2 were never shown in Fedora13. XP showed everything correctly. Recently XP is becoming hung on start up as 2nd HD is connected. But Fedora is showing as previousPl. suggest me the solution as I have a lot data on the 2nd partition of HD 2.
I boot several Redhat based distributions, Fedora 15, Fedora 14, CentOS, Scientific Linux, Redhat and occasionally something non-Redhat based like Ubuntu and Debian. Out of habit and preference I frequently set up partitions to be auto mounted at boot through fstab. Somewhere in time something went seriously wrong with the CentOS install. There are a ton of permission denied errors while booting CentOS (text style boot) mostly regarding shared libraries. The system will boot to the desktop and everything looks OK but some things don't work. I can't update the system because I have no network connection. I obviously can't get to the Internet or get e-mail. I can open a VT but can't log in as regular user or root.
Permission denied in both instances. I didn't make any drastic changes to the CentOS system, just minor tweaks. The culprit in my opinion is a combination of the fact that one of the other Linux systems did an SELinux relabel while booting and the CentOS partition was already mounted. Since the CentOS partition was mounted it too was relabeled. I can't prove this. If there's a way to prove it then I just don't have the skills or knowledge to do so. It's basically a theory based on what I know I've done with the several installed distributions. This is not a rant nor is it a request for help. Just a comment. An assumption, hopefully a correct assumption. The CentOS install was working flawlessly until something happened and I think that something was the SELinux relabel.
I just updated a system to Fedora 12. It has the same partition setup as the previous Fedora 11, but now when booting it pauses with a padlock icon next to a text entry box.I'm assuming it's trying to get my password to mount the encrypted partitions I have on the drive.
However, most of the time when I'm using that computer, I don't want those partitions mounted, and I would prefer to do a luksOpen/mount manually during those times I need the data thereon. Is there a way to get plymouth to ignore those encrypted partitions while it's booting, so that bootup doesn't pause for user input? I have an empty /etc/crypttab and the partitions in question are not in /etc/fstab. For anyone who's looking at this, pass "rd_NO_LUKS" on the command line to disable the initrd from looking for encrypted partitions to try to mount.
I'm using fedora core 9 and I am a linux beginner. In my computer, I can see the icons representing windows partitions but cannot be opened. I right click on it and then opt for "mount the volume" . But there is no use. What can I do?
I am trying to install Fedora 12 x64 on my 27" iMac 10,1. I have tried both the installation dvd and the gnome live cd (both x64 i did not try the x86). On the installation dvd I get as far as the menu giving me the boot/install options - I have tried to install both with a basic video driver and the regular install/upgrade option - both times it begins loading components for the installer program (/sbin/loader) etc. After it loads sbin/loader and mounts the partitions it freezes with half the screen being the terminal txt beforehand and the other half being just a standard fedora logo w/blue background. It is not much different when I try the live-cd the only different is it does the exact same thing when the timer for automatic login is done. Any possible command line arguments that I could use to stop the graphical corruption?
Update: Solution posted below. Distro: Kubuntu 10.04 AMD 64. My system automatically mounts USB devices when attached to the system. I have explicitly disabled this function in (KDE) System Settings --> Advanced --> Removable devices. It doesn't matter - as soon as a USB device is plugged in the system mounts it as root.
I want to automatic mount a ntfs partition after start. I work on fstab, everything seems to be ok, but now something strange is happening: sometimes after boot, when I use fdisk, I find all the partitions as sda, sometims they seems to appear as sdb. Of course, if in fstab I have written sda and they are sdb, they will not be aoutomount... I am using fedora 14 I was expecting that allways the partitions to be sda or sdb.
I have both windows and ubuntu 11.04. In ubuntu I can mount then edit NTFS drive without being asked for permission. It's not safe that way because anyone using my computer can edit my windows files. How do I make it ask for password when mounting NTFS?
I have just managed to install OpenSuSE 11.3.When I try to access a NTFS partition (holding my .MP3s) I get the error message.There is no application installed that can open files of the type block device (inode/blockdevice).Do you want to install one? Attempting to install one doesn't seem to lead anywhere othe than the same sequence. I used to be able to read NTFS partitions with 11.2 - what has changed?
I am using jaunty. I have it installed in a 80 GB ext3 HDD. (This is sdb) I have another 500 GB. Its NTFS. (This is sda) It has 3 partitions. Download, Movies, Dump. They are probably sda1, sda2 and sda3 respectively. Few days ago when I was using intrepid, all three partitions were showing in the Places menu. But I was being able to mount Movies and Dump. Not the Download one. It was continuously saying 'unable to mount'. Now, after fresh installation of jaunty (not upgraded from intrepid) only Download partition is showing in the Places menu. There is no option for the other two partitions.
I am trying to install Debian in an old laptop. Of course, in this laptop there is windows installed and I want to respect it. My plan is to install Debian in a spare drive.Before installing Debian, I want to check what is inside each drive. In order to do that, I am trying to use the Debian installer CD. Then start an admin shell, mount the drives in read-only mode, and check their contents.
But when I run the command: # mount -r -t ntfs /dev/sda3 /mnt/windows
I get the following response: mount: mounting /dev/sda3 on /mnt/windows/ failed: No such device
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdc1 is already mounted on / mount failed. Not sure what happened but it worked fine till last reboot. It's a 250g NTFS drive named MEDIA device /dev/sda1. why it won't mount now.
I used Wubi to install Ubuntu 10.10 onto my laptop alongside Windows 7. I need to access my windows harddrive, however, so I used NTFS Configuration Tool to mount the drive. However, whenever I reboot, it fails to mount and I actually have to go back into NTFS Config Tool, delete the old mount, and remount it. This is tedious. My /etc/fbstab file looks as follows:
I am running 11.4 from a thumb drive,mainly because something is fishy with my main hard drive, but installation is not my reason for this thread (though I think fixing one problem will remedy the other). My winbloze install is short stroked with ~50gb for OS and ~200gb for media storage. I have no problem accessing the storage from windows, but I am unable to mount the storage partition under Ubuntu. I get the following error:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 14: Hibernated non-system partition, refused to mount. Failed to mount '/dev/sda2': Operation not permitted The NTFS partition is hibernated. Please resume and shutdown Windows properly, or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option, or mount the volume read-write with the 'remove_hiberfile' mount option.
For example type on the command line: mount -t ntfs-3g -o remove_hiberfile /dev/sda2 /media/Laptop Storage
When I run that command, I get this: su: invalid option -- 't'
