Fedora :: How To Disable Mount Of Windows Partition In Dolphin

Jan 13, 2010

I just installed Fedora 12. When I open Dolphin, I do find links on the sidebar which enable me to mount the NTFS partitions with a click. I want to disable this for less privileged users and only allow root to do mount and unmount of partitions. I was not able to see autofs installed nor any sign of entries in the fstab.

Debian :: Using The Same NTFS Partition For Linux And Windows Files

Apr 15, 2015

I have installed Debian as a second OS alongside Win XP, and now I have Win XP on C drive (if viewed from XP), NTFS, my data files (mainly texts and graphics) on D drive (NTSF), and Debian on ext3. Debian sees and opens files on D.

1. If I read-write from-on this D partition from both OSes, is there a chance the data will be corrupted?
2. If I open a Windows-created TXT, GIF, JPG, HTML or other not-proprietary format file from Debian, edit it and save (just SAVE, not SAVE AS) - will this file remain readable from Windows?

General :: How To Hide Live USB Partition From Linux / Windows?

May 18, 2010

I want to set up my USB memory stick(s) (4gb) so that I have a partition (3gb?) for personal data storage and another hidden (1gb?) for booting/installing Ubuntu live from the 'stick' on friends' and colleagues' computers.I have a number of queries:

1) If I flag the boot partition 'hidden' in Gparted, it does what I want in Ubuntu but not in Windows; in Windows you can see the hidden partition, 'Wubi', and not the storage one. Does it simply depend on the physical position of the partitions on the memory stick?

2) I am using Unetbootin and Gparted (both GUIs). Should I prepare the live boot partition before or after partitioning the memory stick?

3) How much memory should I allow for the live boot partition?

4) Is there anyone who has asked similar questions or tried to achieve the same results before? Please let me know if I'm doing it all wrong.

Debian :: Can't Mount Windows Partition

Sep 10, 2010

I have a dual-boot with Debian and Windows7. I used Synaptic to install the ntfs packages, and Debian detects the windows partition, but when I double click it, it says something like "Failed to mount. Invalid mount option". Now I can mount it and navigate the folders, but ALL folders and files have permissions set to 700, and I can't change the permissions to access any of the files. Sure would be nice to be able to access my windows partition.

Ubuntu :: Mount The Windows Partition When Using Wubi?

May 25, 2010

Using Ubuntu 10.04 with a Wubi Install. Vista Home Premium is the host. I can access all my partitions and external drives with the exception of my windows partition where Wubi is installed. I have seen some suggestion to go to "places" and click on "host", but there is no "host" listed. My windows install is on sda1 and I believe I need to create a directory for it and then execute a command in the terminal but I have no idea if this correct or what really needs to be done. mount my NTFS windows partition while I am running Ubuntu 10.04 in Wubi.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount/boot Windows Partition?

Mar 19, 2010

Upon trying to boot Windows I got through the GRUB startup selections and then i get stuck at a black screen displaying "Starting Up. . ." That would be no problem, I just boot ubuntu instead and mount the partition to access the programs I'm looking for. Now I get an interesting error message:

"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00150000 size: 4096 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 1040: Invalid argument Actual VCN (0x15000011d92501) of index buffer is different from expected VCN (0x1). Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details."

I would run chkdsk in windows if I could, but that's my problem in the first place.

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount NTFS (windows) Partition?

I have a windows partition on my drive, and I want to access it without having to mount it first, etc. There are just two partitions, windows and Ubuntu. I am running Ubuntu 10.04.1 so I want to mount it on startup. I saw this article: [URL] but I don't know if what it describes will work as it's almost 2 years old. I'm not adverse to commands, in fact would probably prefer those.

Fedora :: Cannot Mount Encrypted Partition?

Apr 11, 2011

I used Ubuntu for years now, but since the latest decisions got public I deceided to try something new: Fedora. I installed the system as a dualboot,Ubuntu and my old data. Because Fedora got installed inbetween of two partitions,ad to do the partitioning manually. I just made one partition /dev/sda4. During the installation process I got asked about the password for my /dev/sda1 partition. Of course, I entered it. So far so good.Now, everytime when I boot, the boot process stops and asks me for the password of the /dev/sda1 partition. However, the boot process does not go on, unless i press STRG+C.After the log in, I can also not access my data, by entering the password (GUI).The only way I can acces the data on that partition is:

Code:
su -
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/DEVICENAME luks-fedora

Fedora :: 15 Can't Mount Selected Partition

Jun 3, 2011

I installed 15. I have reformatted the 500mb /boot partition, didn't touch the swap partition, formatted the / partition. Trying to boot, I receive a "cannot mount selected partition". This is a fresh install. I rebooted into the Live CD to do some FS Checks, and got kernal crash, black screen, lots of kernal output while in live CD trying to do FS checks. The only line that looks like it holds any info that may be relevant is the last of the lines that says: Kernal Panic - Not Syncing: Fatal exception interupt PID 1161, comm:irq/21-0000:01: tainted: g d (kernal version) Panic+0x91/0x19c

I did an FS check on /boot and it came back fine. I did an FS check on /, and it came back fine. But then I told it to do an FS check on swap and got the warning that swap is currently mounted, and that if I proceed, it could cause serious system damage, and asked me if I wanted to proceed. I chose no, and it crashed.

---------- Post added at 02:59 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:42 AM ----------

wait, i think i found the problem. It APPARENTLY installed /boot as ext4. Reinstalling now. Will update momentarily...

---------- Post added at 03:06 AM ---------- Previous post was at 02:59 AM ----------

Nope, i explicity made sure i installed ext3 on boot this time, and it still gives the same boot error, AND i KEEP getting that kernel crash.

Red Hat / Fedora :: How To Mount EXT3 Partition

Jan 20, 2010

I just made a new storage partition and formatted it as Ext3. Now, this particular partition is shown and can be read at the terminal "fdisk -l". However, unlike in my Mint 7 partition, it does not show in my Fedora 10.

Code: [jun@localhost ~]$ sudo fdisk -l
[sudo] password for jun:
Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xc5e3f820

This partition can also shows be seen in gparted in Fedora. However, even in the "Places" tab, it does not show.

Currently I have a dual boot system it consists of Fedora 12 and Windows Vista, at this time when I am logged into fedora 12 I can select the windows vista partition in the f12 file manager, I am than prompted for the root password and after entering the password, the drive mounts as read/write with no problem.
