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 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 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?
I have two systems, one running 11.2 x64, and the other running 11.3 x64. on both systems, I've lost the ability to mount internal partitions "on-the-fly" from the Dolphin panel.Trying to mount via Dolphin has always given me this error on the 11.3 system, but only recently started happening in the 11.2 system after a recent "zypper dup" (using the "Stable" KDE 4.4 repo).If others are experiencing this same issue, please let me know so I can file a bug report. Please note that the error only occurs for internal partitions, and external drives work fine.
I double click "My Computer" and Konqueror goes to sysinfo:/I then try to click on one of my partitions (ones that are already mounted or ones that are not)eeted with the error;There is no application installed that can open files of the type block device inode/blockdevice).Do you want to try to install one?It goes through the repo and finds nothing.I love openSUSE and this one error is the only thing keeping me from being able to use this release.
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.
Just installed opensuse 11.3 Kdeversion on my laptop. Before installing it on live mode i had a problem of accessing my other drives (NTFS, FAT32 and EXT4) which said HAL system policy...etc mounting error. I could access all drives with root privilege. I thought problem will be solver once i install opensuse on my system. How ever i was really disappointed after seeing the same problem post install. Googled around for the solution and got this link
After this the problem got worse now i am not able to see any of the drives in the side panel. Gone through many forum and posts all discuss about external USB HDD.
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).
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.
Nautilus mounts NTFS partitions when I acces them, and before mounting, it asks for root password. Is there a method to auto-mount ntfs partitions on Debian startup, without requiring root password each time they are automatically mounted ? And without installing additional packages.
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
I was running Windows XP SP3 when one of my drives (or partitions) suddenly wasn't accessible. I booted into an old ubuntu Live CD I had (version 8.X) and tried mounting it. I could see the other partitions at this time. I rebooted the machine a couple of times (for normal reasons) and after a particular reboot none of my partitions were present! All seemed to have gone! I didn't do anything except mount the partition from Ubuntu Live CD. Made no write operations .
fdisk -l gives me this:
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
to list the files and I get:
Can't open filesystem. Filesystem seems damaged.
I originally had 6 partitions (including my primary). What do I make of the above screen and how do I proceed? Mot of testdisk documentation says "Choose the paritions to recover..." but I do not have a partition. What do I do to recover my data? I don't mind reformatting my entire HDD, but I need to get some jpegs and movie files off it first.
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?
Recently updated KDE to the last version available, v4.6.4. Apparently Dolphin lost the ability to mount ntfs/fat32 volumes. It was working great with 4.6.3. I'm getting this error while trying to mount an external HDD formatted as NTFS:
An error occurred while accessing 'LaCie', the system responded: org.freedesktop.UDisks.Error.Failed: Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
Earlier i had windows 7 in my hard disk, somehow it got corrupted. Over that i installed ubuntu linux 10.04. I am having a live CD, before installation during the live mode, i was able to see all the NTFS data (windows 7) available in my hard disk. Then i installed Ubuntu 10.04 on the same hard disc. Now under the menu places->Network->windows network. When i double click on this icon, Linux is throwing an error "Unable to mount location failed to retrieve share list from server" and not showing any files. Am having 320GB capacity hard disk. I tried using Getparted to find NTFS partitions, but i could see only the following, where NTFS is missing

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'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 have 500GB external HDD. I have to mount it my CenOS -4.8 Machine.(kernel-188.8.131.52EL 32-bit) . External HDD partitions are ntfs file system partition. I have tried to mount ntfs partition in linux . But it's not done.

Can mount.ntfs and mount.ntfs-3g reside simultaneously?
Whilst accessing an external NTFS drive mount.ntfs takes up a lot of CPU. I am not sure if its mounting the drive using mount.ntfs or mount.ntfs-3g? How do I find out and if they coexist how do I make the default mount drive ntfs-3g?
