OpenSUSE Install :: View/access/read The Files From Data Partition?

Dec 1, 2010

I am a total noob when it comes to opensuse. I just read the reviews and comments from forums taht's why I wanna try this alternative. I have 1 physical drive that has two partitions. 1 is dedicated for my windows OS (20 GB) and the other for my data (approx. 100GB).

How can I install opensuse 11.3 to just 1 partition (20GB) and leave my data partition (approx. 100GB) as it is? Can I still view/access/read the files from my data partition after I have successfully install opensuse 11.3 to my Os partition?

OpenSUSE Install :: Partition Becomes Read-only When Copying Files To It

Mar 3, 2009

I've been having trouble copying files. When I try to copy something, it starts copying, and after a few GB, I suddenly get an error. It tells me its unable to write to the disk. After this, the only way to be able to write to the disk again, is to reboot the system. I then get to copy a few more files before the same error appears. The partition in question is formatted as ext3, using opensuse 11.0 with KDE.

OpenSUSE :: Delete Files On Data Partition Slow Because Trash Is Located On Home Partition?

Aug 18, 2011

KDE 4.6 - opensuse 11.4.

I have a separate ext4 partition which contains all my data (music, movies, etc). When I delete files from this partition it is very slow because it copies files from my data partition to the Trash folder in my home partition. How can I avoid this? Can't the trash be configured so that it uses a trash folder in each partition instead of copying files to another partition (which is slow).

General :: Don't Have Permission To Read DATA Partition; Partition No Longer Visible

Oct 30, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu 10.10 for just under a week. Recently, a partition called 'Data' has disappeared, and all my music and documents along with it. The folder is not to be seen in Places or on my desktop. My only way of finding it is to go to terminal. But when I try to open it there I get an error saying I don't have permission to read it. In Puppy Linux and SliTaz I can easily find the partition and read it. What should I do to bring it back in Ubuntu?

OpenSUSE Install :: All Data From Ext4 Partition Missing

Jan 1, 2011

I have a system running OpenSUSE 11.3 using the bare server configuration.I had a partition for my /srv directory. All was fine until earlier today. I shutdown my system (to remove an old floppy drive from it). When I rebooted, /srv is emtpy (no files nor directories). This is somewhat vexing, as I had several sites running from there, as well as a fair amount of data.The appropriate partition (/dev/sda3) appears using fdisk. However, there is no mention of it in /var/log/messages.Does anyone know how to recover an Ext4 partition?

OpenSUSE Install :: Resizing Partition Without Losing Data

Jan 18, 2011

I would like to resize my /home ( /dev/sdb6 ) partition - without losing data - to make room to create a swap partition (at the moment, I don't have any swap. Is it dangerous ?) IIRC, it was possible to change partition sizes from the install disk in repair mode (?) But I cannot find that repair mode on the 11.3 install disk. Has it been removed or is it somewhere deeper in the install or update process ?

OpenSUSE Install :: Altered Partition On An External Disk - Can Recover The Data

Aug 28, 2010

I have a 250 GB external disk, where there was store a hundred and something GB of data. Pictures, music, documents and TV-shows. It was FAT32. In an attemt to make an live USB drive with openSUSE, I did exactly what I shoulden't do: I mistook the external disk for the the USB drive. Now the external disk has a 700 mb linux partition, while 232.2 GB is unpartitioned. TestDisk from CGSecurity is looking to see if there is a lost partition table there, somewhere. Is there anything I can do? There was no formating, so the data is still there (except for those 650 mb that was overwritten). Is there any way to rebuild the old partition?

Output from "fdisk -l":

Disk /dev/sdc: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 238475 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 = 1048576 bytes

Fedora :: View Files In Windows XP Partition?

Dec 2, 2010

I'm trying to view my files in my windows XP partition and I tried the following with no success:

1. updated /etc/fstab to include the following line:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/win ntfs-3g defaults 0 0

2. tried this command to mount sda1:

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/win (got an error message saying no such file or directory)

Here's what Fdisk shows:

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 581 8924 67023180 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda2 1 580 4658818+ b W95 FAT32
/dev/sda3 8925 8988 512000 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 8988 19458 84096000 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 8988 19458 84094976 8e Linux LVM

Since I'm pretty green at Linux, this is all I know how to do (for now). Isn't there a way for Fedora to auto mount these devices when it boots up?

Ubuntu :: Can't Access Data On Mounted Partition After Upgrade To 10.04

I have a symbolic link to that mounted partition, and when I click on it, I can see the first level of folders, but I can't execute them (even though they seem to be set to 777) and I can't open anything...

Fedora :: Mounting An Ext3 Or 4 Partition With Read And Write Access Using Fstab?

Jul 24, 2009

Anybody know how to make an ext3 or 4 partition start up at boot with only the owner and its group having read and write access permissions.I don't want 'others' to have folder access. This is what i have done. / etc/fstab:/dev/sdb5/media/Data ext4 owner 1 2 The folder starts on the boot since it has been allocated a folder as u can see. Next i changed the the ownership and the group ownership of the folder:chown johnny:johnny /media/DataThe problem is that other users can few my partition since 'others' have read access. How do i change that to zero access?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Freeze (hang) Ntfs Partition Read Write Access?

Jun 4, 2011

I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit desktop version on ext4 partition without swap. I have maximus iv extreme motherboard with 8 Gbytes RAM. Using 3 internal ntfs formatted hard drives and 3 external ntfs usb 2.0 hard drives.When I am trying to copy or move files FROM or TO any ntfs partiton it is 90 percent chance it is going to freeze.For copy/moving files I am using krusader run as ROOT or as user without root privilege or Nautilus as user without root privilege. It wasn't possible to switch to another terminal - it simply does not react on keyboard or mouse input and only hard reset is possible (scares me because of ntfs disks)From this point of view I have suspicious on ntfs driver but:I am completely beginner in linux and I am looking for help to navigate me how to investigate to find what is causing the problem eventually to solve it?

According to my experience it seems to does not matter if hard disk is internal or external connected through SATA II or SATA III or USB 2.0. I have tried to manipulate with ntfspartitions through the vmware or virualbox or truecrypt software or just do a simplecopy/move files - it have has always the same results - freeze. There is not possible to say how long it is going to work properly and when it is going to freeze - sometimes it's working hour, sometimes it's working couple of seconds - no matter if it is read or write operation/s within ntfs partition.

Ubuntu :: How To Read Files On Other Partition

Jun 18, 2010

I was trying to uninstall all my audio drivers/software because of conflict issues.Anywaysomehow I corrupted/deleted/destroyed important stuff. When I try to boot I get this message, "Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure them yourself". I tried doing some of the various things suggested on the forum, to no avail. It wont let me log directly to the computer at the any terminal it offers because it wont accept my user name etc. Anyway, I partitioned the drive and loaded a fresh copy of 10.04 (which is what I already have) and would like to view the files on the corrupted side so I can import my urgent documents.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Access Encrypted Partition With The YaST Practitioner Tool

Feb 13, 2010

I encrypted my home partition with the YaST Partitioner tool, but now I can't access it anymore. After I encrypted it I rebooted the machine and thought that it would prompt me a password field to access the partition, but now I can't access it at all. I tried "mount -t ext4 /dev/sda7 /home" which gives me that error after I entered the password: "mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda7, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so"

The info I get from "dmesg | tail" is: "EXT4-fs (sda7): VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem" Before I encrypted it I converted the /home partition from ext3 to ext4 without any problems and it worked properly. After playing around with it I also discovered that /dev/sda7 got wiped out of /etc/fstab, but I entered it again.

Ubuntu :: Read Files In Partition From Windows?

Mar 23, 2010

[Sorry if this is misplaced; I just couldn't think which category to put it under.] So yeah, I'm almost exclusively using karmic (yay!), but I still have to use that vista install I have smushed in a corner of my HD from time to time. Now, I installed karmic using the default, latest file system (ext4, I believe it is, right?). Last I remember hearing, that presents a bit of a problem, doesn't it?

OpenSUSE Install :: "write" Access For Data Stored In NTFS?

Jun 20, 2010

I have acces to NTFS partitions from OpenSuse 11.2, and read data, yet I cannot write changes of it. I tryed to change "rw" attributes using "sudo", and was not possible. Even the windows version I had is 7, the NTFS partition I want to access for writing, comes from a previous XP install. Is there a way to have "write" access for data stored in NTFS? I recall an install I had on a laptop with Windows XP and Ubuntu... and Ubuntu was able to write on NTFS; would it be possible in OpenSuse?

OpenSUSE Install :: Borked Bootloader - "data" Partition Is Invisible In Win7

Aug 7, 2010

borked the bootloader by my own doing. When I got this machine, I had a single HDD. I partitioned it with a primary partition for Windows, followed by an extended partition with swap, /home/ and /, as well as a FAT32 partition for "general" data. (this was before NTFS write support was common) This worked well with the Win2K install. Eventually, I added a second HDD, which became part data storage, and part Windows XP install. I eventually put Win7 on it, and pulled the other HDD during setup so that the boot order of the drives determines whether I boot Win7/XP or get GRUB.

However, my "data" partition was not visible in Win7... It shows up as an unknown FS in the disk management. OK, I thought. I used Paragon partitioning software to move the "data" partition out of the extended partition and make it a primary. I could now access it from Win7. I didn't realize I had GRUB set to boot from the extended partition, so now when I boot from that HDD, I get "no operating system". No problem, I thought. I'll pop in the install CD (NET), use it to boot the installed 11.3, and run the boot loader setup. Nope- setup just hangs. Tried it with an 11.2 DVD... doing a "boot installed system" nets me a few moments of searching, "evaluating root partition", and then "no valid linux install found". Trying the boot loader reinstall from there nets me an "error changing to target environment" and the install fails.

I can still mount the / partition via rescue mode and all files appear to be intact, so I don't think I've lost any data... just grub/the MBR is borked. I've already moved the data partition back in to the extended partition but no luck. Still the same story... thus I'm stuck booting Windows until I fix this.

OpenSUSE Install :: Access Files From Windows From An Ext4 Disk?

Feb 5, 2010

I am dual booting OpenSUSE and Windows 7 Pro x64. Each OS is installed on a separate 1Tb hard drive. One question that I have tried to Google for a solution with no success is, how do you access ext4 from Windows? Shortly after I installed OpenSUSE, my OpenSUSE hard drive "vanished" from Windows 7. aturally, I can access all my hard drives from OpenSUSE, which does support the NTFS. I am quite sure that I am not the only person who has this problem as I know that dual booting Linux and Windows is quite common.
