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 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.
I am not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I am trying to find out how I can modify forms on my Windows partion. I am running a dual boot with Win 7 and Open Suse 11.2. I can access and read the NTFS files but can not change them or add to the Win 7 Partion. How do I change ownership and permissions so that I can work on them from Open Suse 11.2
in attempt to dualboot w7 and opensuse i manage to screw windows boot loader. I was hoping that with opensuse live cd i'll successfully save my data but i was wrong. I can't browse any of partition with any of browsers inside liveCD including dolphin. When i try to access it says: There is no application installed that can open files of the type block device (inodelockdevice). Do you want to try to install one? Is there another option to access partitions because I can't install another browser on live cd.
I use OpenSuse 11.2 and Windows XP. After booting to OpenSuse, I can see NTFS drives are mounted but I am always being asked for a password to access them. Is it possible to access NTFS drives without typing a password? The reason is I created links referring to folders and files stored on the NTFS drives.
I have two ntfs partitions I use to store music and data. I've been using them in all my linux boxes without any problems. Simply use Ntfs-3g with noatime and everything works great.
However, since the update to OpenSuse 11.3 writing to my NTFS partitions takes FOREVER. I've specified noatime, relatime and norelatime successively without success. The partitions have plenty of space and are defragmented.
When copying large files, It starts fast at first, but in the last hundred MB it slows down to about 1.5MB/s. Even after the transfer is supposedly done, the HD led remains on and all other read/write activity involving the partition is completely halted. This can take between 5 minutes to 10 or more depending on the size of the file. When copying several small files, (100 MB or less) it starts at about 1.5MB/s from the beginning.
I have the latest versions of fuse and ntfs-3g installed
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.
I'm new to OpenSuse 11.2, In Yast partitions configurations, I've mounted all NTFS partitions successfully without ticking "read-only", and according to this webpage: NTFS - openSUSE I checked my fstab file, there's no "-ro" in the file. But I still couldn't write to any mounted NTFS partitions, I can't do paste file, can't save changed files into NTFS partition.
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. Earlier I had Installed Open SUSE with KDE Desktop and there were no problems, everything was readily mounted and i could access the NTFS Partitions. I am a Total Newbie To Linux. Give Me The Syntax To Mount The NTFS Partitions in Following Partition Table Acquired with fdisk :
Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
I've just installed 11.4 and then updated to gnome 3. I've noticed that Nautilus doesn't appear to mount my windows NTFS partition. I find this odd because both Ubuntu and Fedora detect and mount it just fine in Gnome 3 (I've been trying all 3 this week).
I know it is not advisable to write to a NTFS drive with linux. Though I'm using Knoppix and Fedora 11, is it safe to access my video and music files from linux, while I am working under them or would it be best to use external media to get them.
I just encountered a huge problem with my PC. It's a Sony VAIO VGC-RC210G with the first two HDDs in a RAID0 configuration. Windows Vista is installed on the RAID and Kubuntu on another HDD.We had a power outage yesterday and the PC was powered on. Vista wouldn't boot, something which I traced to crcdisk.sys (stupid f***ing CRC check)
I currently have 3 drives. 1 is running nothing more than Ubuntu, 2 drives are NTFS drives that I have from Windows days...I need them that way case they are big and at some point I may need to go back to windows (don't want to though).About 3 days ago I was un-raring some files on my big portition (500 G...the files were about 24 rar files with total after extract +/- 600 megs)I also had FireFox open and I was checking email....something happen and my computer become unresponsive...no mouse, no keyboard.So I flip the switch (after about 5 minutes waiting).I can start Ubuntu not a problem but as soon as i try to mount my drive that was mounted at the time of "re-boot" nautilus is crashing, my desktop is gone.I can see the file on that drive in terminal, I can view/modify some of the files...I can see and work with the files using GNOME Commander.I try testdisk, fsck, ntfsfix and I also try XP chkdsk (that one took long to run).
Now does any one know how to fix this? If i can fix this I can move some of the file to other drives and maybe format that drive to ext3.This drive also has my VMPlayer XP files so I do need that (not able to connect to Sonic Wall VPN with x64 linux so need to use XP).
After trying Truecrypt, LUKS, and Ecryptfs I decided to try NTFS encryption. Now, on a dual boot computer from Ubuntu I can browse the encrypted folders but can not open the encrypted files. All attempts produce access denials yet the Unix file permissions appear to be "0777" (owner, group, and world readable-writable).
Is there someway to get Ubuntu's NTFS software to recognize and decrypt the encrypted files? Would a different NTFS package work such as NTFS-3g?
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 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.
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.
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).
I'v recently migrated from Ubuntu to Debian. however when attempting to browse one of my ntfs partitions I get the following error "Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume 'a' a is the name of the ntfs partition i'm trying to browse.I'm using Debian lenny
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 have installed ubuntu on my notebook, and there are 4 partitons in the hdd, all are NTFS, only one is ext4.
the problem is i deleted some hidden folders(in ubuntu which are not hidden, such as recyclebin and file information table folders) in ntfs partitions, now i need to reinstall the windows 7 back, i have a doubt that even windows will ever recognize those partitions again?
On my laptop I have Windows and Ubuntu, and I use Ubuntu very often. How can I auto-mount the NTFS partitions once I run my Ubuntu without the need to manually ask to mount it and confirm with the root password each time and for each partition?
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 am having a dual boot setup with Lucid Lynx and Windows 7. I want to automatically mount the NTFS partitions whenever I login to Lucid. I am looking for a graphical tool to set this up. Kindly suggest one.
