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.

SUSE / Novell :: How To Mount External Hard Drive?

Feb 16, 2008

I using Suse 10.3. When i use i system, i do not use as root user. Mount a external hard drive requires me to open a terminal and log in as root. After logging in as root, i type this to mount the sdb1 to directory /media/root.However this method only enables the root to view the contents in the external hard disk. How do i mount so that i when i log in as a user to view the contents of the external hard drive?

General :: Fstab Line For Auto Mount Drive That All Users Can Read/write?

Jan 4, 2011

I have installed a cable that connects from the CPU's SATA motherboard connection to a removable drives' ESATA connection.I would like to be able to swap drives on the ESATA connection and have all users be able to read and write to these drives.I have created the directory /archive/ where I would like the drive(s) to mount.The drives are all formatted Fat 32 - but in the future I may use HFS for formatting.When I used the command (as root):mount /dev/sdc1 /archivethe drive was mounted (but read only)What can I use in my /etc/fstab file that will allow drives to be mounted and unmounted by all users on the system? (both reading and writing)Also, will I be able to mount and unmount these drives without shutting down? or will I need to reboot every time I want to change drives?

General :: Failing NTFS HDD - Will Ddrescue Read And Write To Windows NTFS Drives

Jun 15, 2008

One of my hard drives is failing. I would like to get some data off it. I backup regularly, but am missing about 1.5 weeks worth of data. Sometimes the drive clicks and fails to operate, and if it does operate, it has a few errors here and there.My failing drive runs Windows XP with a NTFS format. I would like to image the failing drive using ddrescue (I've read that works good) to another NTFS hard drive with more than enough space on it to hold data from the failing HD. I don't even know if this is possible or how to go about this.

* Can ddrescue read from Windows NTFS and write to a NTFS hard drive?

* What do I need to download so I can boot ddrescue from floppy or CD-ROM so I can image one drive to another (perhaps a partition on another)?

* Do I need to download a Linux boot disk or something with ddrescue on it?

* Are there any free or open source Windows programs that do what ddrescue does? This data is important to me, but not important enough to spend a fortune on. It represents about 40 or more hours of work. As a note, I can only get the failing drive to operate if it is set on the primary IDE ribbon and in the first position.

Ubuntu :: Permanently Mount NTFS With Open Permissions?

Jul 25, 2011

I installed a new media drive that I will be using to share with a windows 7 laptop using samba. After days of frustration, I figured out that the sharing is not working because I have to set the permissions for the NTFS drive when it is mounted. Once it is mounted, using chmod, chown or right-clicking in nautilus does not work. As a result, when I try to access the files from my windows laptop, it keeps saying that it can't find the share (due to the permission issue). How do I change the fstab to automatically mount the ntfs drive, and have completely open permissions (read/write/execute by everyone)?


UUID=28ASDFGF4AABFA4 /media/media ntfs-3g defaults,blksize=4096,umask=0000

SUSE / Novell :: NTFS Disks Are Empty?

Apr 15, 2010

How and when it happened I do not know. But some days ago I tried to copy some files from my NTFS disk and I cant. The disk is empty (really it is not). I have 3 NTFS disks on my system and one with Suse on it. Until now I could normally access all my disks. Now I can access them but there are no files/directories on any one of them (as seen from SUSE).And in my fstab there are entries which I do not know how they come there. Here is my fstab file:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

SUSE / Novell :: Navigating In 10.2 & Are NTFS Drivers Avail

Jul 13, 2008

I had trouble in konquerer to navigate beyond /home and I didn't get to access my ext3, Fat32 and my NTFS data partitions. Is the NTFS read/write driver already installed in suse 10.2? Also in Ubuntu, I can access the whole Suse partition and it's files in /home for example. Can I do the reverse in suse (JAD 1.0)?

I need confirmation that the NTFS for linux driver is included in Suse 10.2 or easy to install now since I am thinking of changing my only Fat32 partition to NTFS since I had trouble with shared folder permissions in FAt32. Yes, I also use windows.

SUSE / Novell :: Install A D-Link Access Point On Suse 11.0?

Sep 16, 2010

how to install a D-Link Access Point on Suse 11.0 or steer me toward documentation that will do that? I configured the device on XP following instruction from this forum and the AP configured perfectly.The AP is plugged directly into the network port on the computer. It *should* function correctly without a router. I tried a restart and Suse has no idea it's there. The computer is currently configured for a wired connection which needs to be changed. The computer itself is going to be used as a small home storage server.

SUSE / Novell :: Read Only File System During Installation?

Feb 19, 2008

I'm trying to install OpenSUSE and keep having the same problem over and over (several reinstallation attempts). This has happened with 10.1 and 10.3 with the same computer:

Motherboard: Abit KV7
RAM: 384MB
HD: 40GB Samsung

The end result is I'm getting the error, "Read Only File System" on my root partition. I'm using two partitions: swap (sda1) & root (sda2). I have tried both ext3 and reiserfs file systems. At first the error would appear after the installation completed and I would try to boot up with out the CD. But, the last two installation attempts have been producing the error right after the first reboot during the installation, so I don't even get to the Configuration section where I would get to choose a root password, etc.

I have tried Rescue Mode and mounted the partition. There are no files in /boot, and the directory /etc/boot doesn't exist (not sure if it should with SUSE...just one of the things I've ran across to try for fixing the problem). When using ext3 the hard drive's partition in mtab looks fine(haven't looked at it since trying reiserfs):


/dev/sda2 / ext3 rw 0 0
Looking at fstab it has the partition line (for ext3) as this:


/dev/sda2 / ext2 defaults 0 0

Also, while booting up the system the BIOS says the drive's speed is 33MHz, and Linux first attempts to use 66MHz, but then drops it down to 44MHz. Back when it did completely install I tried putting ide=nodma on the menu screen when choosing to boot normally (not Fail Safe), but it didn't make a difference. Also tried hard coding it into either fstab or mtab but forget which it was, but it didn't make a difference either.

SUSE / Novell :: Write IPTABLES Script To Block The ICMP Ping?

Mar 13, 2010

I was trying to write IPTABLES script to block the ICMP ping using the below mentioned command in OpenSUSE 11.2 Doing this in VMware.....

iptables -A OUTPUT -o eth0 -p icmp -j DROP

& then I tried to ping the different computer & it didnt allow me to ping.
Then I deleted using the command -

iptables -D OUTPUT -o eth0 -p icmp -j DROP

then I couldnt ping also. Another thing I found is my firefox is not connecting to the internet as well, but before writing the script, I can connect to internet.

I did a "dhclient" & iptables -F....
