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,

Installation :: Editing Fstab To Allow RW Access For All Users To A NTFS Partition

Mar 14, 2009

Sometimes Linux just make you want to throw the PC out of the window, and get a new one with WINDOWS on it...Having only just "got" the idea that there are a nunber of ways of issuing chmod, I now find that there is yet another when in the fstab file. It is an easygoogle to find out a workaround to make this drive RW, but doing that way one does not learn what is actually happening.how do I find out UID and GID? fmask and dmask, how do I find out what the current settings mean, and what they should be to allow RW access for various groups/users or for everyone?

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?

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?

Fedora Installation :: Editing Fstab / Disks.txt And Mounts.txt After Live CD Install?

Jan 19, 2010

I have installed Fedora 12 i686 Live to a 200 mb partition on an external drive. Before the install I created a 6.7 GB ext3 partition and a 45 GB ext3 partition. The live cd copied the image to a 200 mb partition.

partition 2bce0f9d-53a6-4ec2-b5ad-1a6915c74260 is 45 GB
partition 4683EB23BED2EB34 is 102.6 GB NTFS
partition b7240ff1-0807-42ba-e172-bff5872519ad is 6.7 GB

[code]....

Will creating an entry in fstab sdb6 and sdb8 allow the fedora distrib dvd to install to the external hd? How do I create the entries?
I have a raid0 hd with windows xp pro. When i try to shrink the partition using anaconda, I get a disk error and the comper locks up. I have to shut off the ups to reboot.

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).

Ubuntu Security :: Lost User Privileges To Mount Volumes From Naultilus?

Sep 13, 2010

I'm running 10.04 running daily updates. A couple days back, I saw an update related to mounting volumes. Not sure if this is what broke my system, but might be. When attempting to mount a partition from nautilus, I get a message saying I do not have authorization. It does not even ask for my password, just fails. I tried running updates and this asks for my password and accepts it fine. I opened disk utility from the menus and tried to mount the volume from there but also got the same permission denied, not authorized without even being asked for my password.

I then ran gksu palimpsest. I was asked for my password and was able to mount and unmount partitions from there. However, when mounted, my applications and nautilus cannot access the data in the partitions mounted using gksu palimpsest. In nautilus, I can navigate to /media/Data (the partition in question) but I get "THE FOLDER CONTENTS CANNOT BE DISPLAYED You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "Data"." When I open nautilus via gksu in the terminal, I do have full access to the partitions.

How do I get my privileges back for my user account. I am the only user on the computer, and I have never set up a root account since my upgrade to 10.04 months ago. I tried of course the Administration->Users and Groups menu, but I am not permitted to change the account type or open advanced settings. I click the button, but nothing happens, not even a password request. Running gksu admin-settings on the terminal allows me access. My current settings are attached.

Ubuntu Installation :: Editing Fstab To Add An Additional HDD?

Sep 26, 2010

I'm attempting to add an additional HDD to my system (without having to format it). I was told that I need to edit my Fstab. I'm trying to get an internal SATA drive mounted. I'm getting these two errors when I try and mount the drive DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

and

DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending

my Fstab is as follows.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

Fedora :: Fstab Ext3 F11 - Automatically Mount The Drive In File Tree At The Location /mnt/TheDrive?

May 15, 2010

With a 1Tb USB drive plugged in, we'll call it "TheDrive", I boot my machine and "TheDrive" is mounted automatically. The icon is on the desk-top. "TheDrive" mounts to /media/TheDrive. Everything is fine. But, I would like to automatically mount the drive in my file tree at the location /mnt/TheDrive. I would not like to have the drive automatically mounted to /media/ and appear on the desktop. I know that this requires the use of fstab; but, I do not know what to add to this file.

General :: Mount And Umount As User Without Fstab?

Jul 19, 2011

I am writing this software that creates virtual block device nodes almost like loop does. I need to allow non-superusers to mount and umount filesystems from these devices. I don't know the names of the block device nodes beforehand so i can't use fstab entries to add "user" or "owner" flags there.

Currently i solve this by providing a small suid helper tool that verifies that this is indeed "my" block device the user is trying to mount and then just call /sbin/mount or /sbin/umount to do the job. This is definitely better than setting a suid bit for the whole program but not really perfect.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mount NTFS File System In Wine?

May 4, 2010

Trying to mount my NTFS file system (portable hard drive) so that is can be recognized by a program I have installed in wine (seagate manager). I've tried to change the mount point for the drive to /home/.wine/c_drive but that doesn't seem to do the trick, and messing around with the fstab file just results in error messages when I try to mount/unmount the drive.

who to change the mount point properly? /dev/sbd1 is my partition.

Either that or does anyone know how to configure wine so that it will find my drive? I've tried adding an e: drive to the drives tab and mapped it to mediaSimons' Seagate (partition label), but that doesn't seem to do the trick either.

Ubuntu Installation :: Trying To Install - Volumes Won't Mount?

Apr 21, 2011

I got a new computer today, a Compaq Presario CQ56, with Windows 7 preinstalled, and I want to dualboot with Ubuntu, but I'm having some problems. I'll explain what I've done so far, in case I did something wrong.

When I popped in my 10.10 Live CD, I was surprised to see there was not "install alongside existing operating system", which I thought I remembered from the last time I installed Ubuntu, but I chose manual partitioning and continued. I'd never done this before, so I quickly learned I had to first create a (couple) partition(s).

After freeing up a large amount of space and rebooting twice as recommended, I booted off the Live CD and opened GParted, intending to create a Ubuntu system partition, one for swap, and one for my home folder. When I right-clicked on my unallocated space, I got the error message "It is not possible to create more than 4 primary partitions". After a little googling, I found I had to eliminate one of my primary partitions and create a new extended partition, which I could then partition further. Noticing I had a partition that didn't seem important, HP_TOOLS, I googled and found this.

When I inserted my flash drive, it didn't automount. When I tried to mount by right-clicking and clicking "Mount", nothing happened. I also cannot mount the HP_TOOLS partition, nor any other. They don't mount when I click on them in the Places menu, and they don't mount when I right-click and choose Mount.

My main question is "Help! How do I install Ubuntu?", but I think if I can create these partitions, which requires mounting the drives (I think), I can figure the rest out.

A screenshot of my GParted window is attached, if that helps. (I couldn't see how to insert it without a URL)

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Login Using The Only User Account?

Mar 29, 2010

If I'm getting good at anything with Fedora, it would be making mistakes. I have Fedora 12 installed and it was running fine until I attempted to set the path in bashrc and cshrc for jdk. Now I am unable to login using the only user account I created at install. When I enter my password the login screens goes blank then my mouse pointer appears with the circling dashed loading symbol for a few secs and then brings me back to the login screen asking for my password again.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mount External Ntfs Hd As User AND Being Able To Share?

Mar 14, 2010

I have an ntfs external hd; I can mount and use it fine, without entry in fstab, but not share stuff. That is to say: I can use nautilus / thunar to share folders on it without errors, but they are not accessible via the network. The issue may be that the mount point has permissions 700. I can solve that by Code:sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/Databank -o umask=0,nls=utf8or by setting umask=022 in fstab, but then I can't mount it as user anymore; if I set fstab to

Fedora Installation :: Editing Boot INI File To Detect F12?

Jan 6, 2010

Problem is to boot fedora. On my system I have 3 HDD
on 1st - 2 partition (1)XP (2) free space for data NTFS
on 2d - 1 partition (1) Win Serv 2003
on 3d - 3 partitions (1) free space for data NTFS (2) /boot (3) Fedora 12

After installation boot manager doesn't see fedora! Only give me option to run XP or 2003. Another problem Fedora 12 Live CD doesn't work for my graphic. I see some quick text after lanch and then black screen but still understand that there going some processes under that black screen, than it looks like stop and w8 for my decision which I cant make cause don't see what is there going on. So there no chance to get under linux after instalation and no chance using live CD to install GRUB and I need some how edit boot.ini in windows to make it appear fedora in boot menu.

My current boot.ini looks like that:
Code:
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition" /noexecute=optout /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
how should looks 3d line?
Code:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(3)Linux="Fedora 12" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
like this?

Fedora Installation :: Mount NTFS Partition From 10 Rescue Mode/Disk?

Mar 9, 2009

Background for the problem:

A. I have partitioned my WinXP LTop into:

--- WinXP NTFS partition
--- a vfat partition (mounted onto /fat32)
--- Installed F10 on ext3 virtual partition

B. I do not want install grub-loader in the Master Boot Record (that would loose my WinXP boot-loader for ever)

C. I have installed grub boot loader in the First Boot Sector

D. Now I have to boot using Rescue Mode, do:

1. dd if=/dev/sda2 of=/fat32/linux.bin bs=512 count=1
2. mount -t ntfs /dev/sda1 /ntfs
3. cp /fat32/linux.bin /ntfs
4. modify /ntfs/c/boot.ini and introduce the statement 'c:linux.bin="Linux"'

Problem: Im not able to do step D.2 above.

Symptom:
** after booting linux using the Rescue Mode: sh-3.2# chroot /mnt/sysimage sh-3.2# uname -r 2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i586 sh-3.2# mount -f ntfs /dev/sda1 /ntfs FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i586/modules.dep: No such file or directory ntfs-3g-mount: fuse device is missing, try 'modprobe fuse' as root
sh-3.2#

Observations:

* The rescue mode boots into i586 based kernel (I dont know what is the actual difference between i586 and i686 - will really appreciate if anyone can educate me about it). * The installation is only a i686 image and consequently there is *only* '/lib/modules/2.6.27.5-117.fc10.i686' dir and *no* other dir. There is no dir as xxxx.fc10.i586.

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.
