SUSE / Novell :: Permanently Mount NTFS Drive With Read / Write Access
Feb 28, 2006
What is the best way to "permanently" mount a windows ntfs drive on suse 10.0 for read/write access? I use samba but I can't seem to find a way to mount the drive "permanently". Is it safe for my NTFS drive?
After installing the "fuse" and "fuse-ntfs-3g" packages, my ntfs formatted thumb drive mounts read only, as follows:# mount.../dev/sdb1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,default_permissions,blksize=4096)
i am using SUSE 11.0 KDE 4.0 i had root account installed in 8.0 Gb drive, and a normal account installed in 4.0 Gb drive .And i was using rest of space for windows (NTFS). Now i want to use a drive (NTFS) to linux for additional requirements. i want get write permissions to that drive .. am i able to get ??r else ..i need to format with EXT3?
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.
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?
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?
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.
I just installed a new hdd I formated with Ext3 filesystem and set the mount point to /local (not really sure what that is).I can see it under my computer but I do not have write access. What did I do wrong?I am running 10.3
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)?
OK... I tried everything i could think of... but i still cannot get my Open SUSE 11.1 to mount my samba share at boot! I still don't understand the 11.1 boot sequence. can NE one help me... tell me what files to give you output from... Ty guys P.S. My shares originate from a Windows Server 2003 RC2 machine, and it's dns server doesn't work correctly... so my mount command is
mount -t //192.168.x.x/files/ /nET/ -o username=linux,password=xxxxxx please let me know what other info you need... I don't have the internet, so it will be tommorow b4 i see this again!!! Thanks
I have a dual boot comp with wins 7 and suse 11.3. There are 3 ntfs drives installed. I can read and write on 2 of them but I on one I cant. I can see the drive bute when I open it, there are no folders showing.The fstab is ok.
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:
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.
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.
Im just trying to write some script to caputre memory and cpu usage on SLES servers, I just wanna use "top |grep Mem" and "top |grep Cpu". when I ran the above command, it just keep going. i just want to get one line each for memory and cpu.
Only Root seems to have Write permission to an external USB disk. Even if I mount the device manually and allow all permissions mount -t vfat -o rw /dev/sdb1 /mnt/extusb.Still get access denied when I try to write as a normal user.
I installed CentOS 5.5 32-bit with Gnome and want to use it as a file server. The volume I wish to share is a 1.5TB NTFS partition stored on a USB drive. I installed "ntfsprogs" and "fuse-ntfs-3g" to get NTFS support. However, I only have read access to the volume.
How can I fix this and get Read+Write to the NTFS drive?
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.
I have 64GB USB stick NTFS formated. I'd like to exchange files much bigger than 4GB between windows and linux. FAT32 doesn't support files bigger than 4GB. Is it possible to mount NTFS RW under Debian Lenny?
I have a media server running OES2 on SLES 10.x after the network admin applied a patch to the system the machine will no longer mount the NSS volumes. I am relatively experienced with using linux, but I primarily use red hat and fedora so all these NOvell tools are a bit foriegn to me. I need to get the data off the volumes and restore the drives (ext3) asap. I dont want to screw around with eDirectory or OES2 unless I have to.
I've recently started using a 500gb external hard drive for music and backups. It is always plugged into the computer but doesn't always mount at boot-up and I have to dis-connect and re-connect the USB cable. The desktop icon then appears.The fact that it's mount point changes also means I can't share the Music folder on the external hard drive via Samba (WinXP machines say they can't access the folder) and also Songbird 'loses' the tracks.
How do I permanently mount the external hard drive? I assume it will mean some editing of the fstab file? Unfortunately, I've got no idea of what I should enter on there.The external hard drive volume is called 'Music and BackUps' - Gparted screengrab attached.
I am running SUSE 11.1 on a 80Gig IDE HDD, I have added a 160 SATA HDD which I wish to use as storage. fdisk reports it as /dev/sda1 - W95 fat 32 LBA. What would the fstab entry be to make the disk mount automatically on boot, so that it shows on the desktop ready for use.
What are the possible problem when Windows access the file from Ubuntu got Read Only even though have a full permission to read, write and execute the file? Ubuntu to Ubuntu accessing the file there is no problem only Windows got a problem.
I am dual booting OpenSuse 11.2 and Windows 7 both 64bit on my PC. I've got VMware workstation installed on both. I've got few virtual machines which were all created in Windows VMware and they're all stored on a separate partition. I can access this partition and all other NTFS partition from Suse but with read-only permissions. That means I can't run any of these virtual machines from Suse VMware. Is there any possible way to make all these drives writeable from Suse? I'm really hoping someone would be able to help me. I've got a lot of googling and have even searched this forum but without any luck.
sudden of all all USB drives and sticks I put into a PC will not mount with read/write permissions (they did before). I can still copy to them, but only when I am root. I am on Maverick I've noticed though that if I run disk utility, then UNMOUNT the partition, Check File System, Mount the partition back, I get read/write access..
I have a usb port problem. I am trying to set up printers to usb port. When II have setup printer to connect to usb. When I test connection, it prints. Any other part of printer setup, shows up in the Que, but will not test print.Seem that my usb port does not have permissions set up properly. How do I set up permissions and keep them setup?
Anybody knows how can I mount and unmount a floppy within the desktop and/or dolphin filemanager in KDE 4.1? If I run dolphin I can see a floppy icon on the left, clicking on it seems to activate a reading of the floppy, then I have to go to /media folder and click on /disk folder to display the floppy files, then if a right click on the floppy on dolphin the only option I get is to hide the floppy shortcut, there is no option for unmount the floppy. I tried to make a desktop shortcut to floppy by right clicking on the desktop folder and selecting new device floppy and entering /dev/fd0 on device location, and clicking okay. Even that does not have the unmount command when I right click on the desktop shortcut, so the floppy gets stock in mount state.
also I dont see an applet or the so called plasmanoid when I click on the plasma icon on the right of the task bar and click add widget, on kde 3.5 I have the media applet on the task bar, it worked like a charm, I give a 1000 thanks to the developer of the media applet.
Any ideas on how to mount and unmount my floppy? It is a standard internal floppy, which is connected to the standard floppy controller on the motherboard. The only way to have access to it is logging into kde 3.5 and have the media applet/widget in the taskbar, and then works like a charm, I can mount it or unmount it any time. But I would like to try the new Version 4.1.3 (KDE 4.1.3) "release 72.4" that I'm running. I believe this is the latest from the opensuse 11.1 KDE 4 STABLE repository, so I know I have the latest patches for KDE 4.
