OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4, Gnome 3 New Install / No NTFS Partitions Detected?

Apr 24, 2011

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).

OpenSUSE Install :: Mount NTFS Partitions In GNOME?

Mar 15, 2011

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


Partition table entries are not in disk order

OpenSUSE Install :: Accessing Hdd Partitions Using Kde/gnome Live?

Jul 23, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Partitions Not Detected During 10.04 Install?

May 2, 2010

trying to install 10.04, once i reach the dialog where i'm supposed to select partitions for mount/install, the installer reports my HDD is empty. it wants to create a partition table and proceed from fact, my 1TB disk is 50% full and contains 10 partitions, including /boot /home, swap (which i wanna reuse) and 2 other OS partitions. these partitions do show up when running nautilus in 10.04 live, also "fdisk -l" shows them - the installer does not.

Ubuntu :: Gparted Can't See Ntfs Partitions Of New Win7 Install

Nov 11, 2010

i installed win7 ultimate on a 2TB HD and was hoping to dual-boot it with meerkat, i did a standard install and shrunk the partition using win7 disk management to leave 500GB for ubuntu.problem is ubuntu can't detect the existing win7 install, when selecting advanced setup it just shows one big unallocated partition.

i went back into win7 and extended the partition again, then booted into ubuntu live cd to see if maybe gparted would do the trick. gparted also cannot detect the existing win7 install and just displays unallocated terminal if i do 'sudo parted /dev/sda print' i get this message:

Warning: /dev/sda contains GPT signatures, indicating that it has a GPT table.However, it does not have a valid fake msdos partition table, as it should.Perhaps it was corrupted -- possibly by a program that doesn't understand GPT partition tables. Or perhaps you deleted the GPT table, and are now using an msdos partition table. Is this a GPT partition table? Yes/No? ^C

OpenSUSE Install :: Overlapping Partitions With Fresh Opensuse 11.3 Install

Aug 4, 2010

After a fresh install of opensuse 11.3 x86_64, using a NET install CD, I noticed that the boot disk layout has overlapping partitions. I've noticed one other post that mentioned this at the very end. Is this a known problem already? Or is there something I'm missing that makes this okay?

OpenSUSE Install :: Network Install On 701 Freezes At "Searching For Linux Partitions"?

Jul 1, 2010

I'm trying to do a network installation of opensuse 11.2 on my ASUS eee 701.

- I've downloaded the ISO image, verified it with md5sum, and burned it to CD.
- I've used a live CD and fdisk to create a new partition table on the internal SSD (/dev/sda) and a single primary partition of type 83.
- I've booted the CD, changed the language to English[UK], and continued.

The installer then told me that there's not enough memory for a graphical installation. This is weird because my ASUS has 1MB of memory and works fine with a live CD, but it's not much of a problem because I'm comfortable with text-based installation.

The real problem is that the installer froze on the next screen while "searching for Linux partitions". I aborted after about 10 minutes of inactivity.

I don't really want to download the entire DVD because I've only got 4GB of SSD and want to set up a trimmed-down system.

OpenSUSE :: Very Slow Writes To NTFS Partitions

Aug 30, 2010

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

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.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Mount NTFS Partitions Anymore

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 DVD Cannot See Any Partitions

Dec 9, 2009

I had a Windows 7 RC/openSUSE 11.1 dual-boot on this computer running on RAID 1. When I installed Windows 7 final, somehow it screwed up my RAID 1. I fought with it for a while, but decided to wipe the logical drive, and then go into BIOS and disable RAID. I reinstalled Windows 7 on the HDD, but I have no RAID now. BIOS shows 4 SATA drives. Windows sees all of them just fine. But the openSUSE 11.2 install DVD can't see any partitions on sda, sdb, sdc or sdd. It however says I still have two RAID logical drives, which I don't. I'd really like to install openSUSE 11.2, but I want it to recognize my Windows partitions, if for no other reason that to see my MP3 collection, my eBooks, etc.

OpenSUSE Install :: Compatible With NTFS?

Mar 14, 2010

I plan to install OpenSUSE as my main operating system. However, before proceeding with the installation I want to clarify one problem I think I might face. My disc is partitioned into 2 parts- a) C: being my primary partition and b) D: containing all my important files. Both the partitions are NTFS.

I am planning to format C: and install OpenSUSE on it. Will I be able to use the D: partition in OpenSUSE just as I use it in Windows or would I have to format D: too? I do not want to format D: drive. Would I have to make any special configurations before or after installing OpenSUSE to use D: drive?

OpenSUSE Install :: Partitioning Not Detected By Installer?

Jul 4, 2010

I have 2 physical 500 GB Sata drives/stripes that appear as 1000 GB C: drive under WinXP. I have partitioned that drive into 750 GB Windows native C: and an empty 250 GB partition F:
When running the installer for OpenSuse 11.2 only the physical drives appear in the list of available hard drives 2x 500 GB (= sda and sdb), rather then the partitions of 750 and 250 GB (would expect sda1 and sda2). Is it possible to install Opensuse on the 250 GB partition (F: under windows) without destroying the WinXP installation and data on the C: partition?

OpenSUSE Install :: Root HD Not Being Detected After Installation?

Apr 2, 2011

I just installed 11.4 and I get an error when I try to boot, "fsck failed for at least one filesystem". It's referring to sdc2, which is my /. This drive is a 1.5gb SATA drive, and it may be that this drive is very slow to initialize. I used to have a problem in Windows where this same drive wouldn't be detected after waking from sleep, so I had to apply a hotfix patch.

I tried manually fsck-ing, but the drive isn't detected at all. Maybe some way I can make it wait longer for the drive?
