I am using centOS-5, I have mount NTFS drive by using fuse. But there is no rights and even there is no option on right click to make new directory or to del any file or folder. This is line of fstab for NTFS drive
How can I get full access and control on this NTFS mounted drive.
I have 13.1 as a dual boot with xp on a 40G hd. There is a 500G hd where I keep all my files, in ntfs format, and I have usb sticks in fat32 and ntfs. When I installed 13.1 I chose read and write access for all users for all of these media. 13.1 will read from them, but will not write to them. How can I fix this?
When I installed OpenSuse 11.2 it mounted I configured to mount all of my windows/NTFS partition. However, one problem is that only root can write to it. I was trying to change it to '777' permission. However, as root I can't change permission. chmod doesn't work and neither does using nautilus (as root) work.I even tried unmounting it and then doing a chmod. That didn't work either.
I've installed slax6 onto an ext3 partition and setup a users account, i've also just managed to mount some virtualbox shared folders which are working and i can access them fine. The problem is I cannot seem to give limited user accounts access to them. root can access them no problem! but right clicking and changing the permissions do nothing, because once I click apply, reopen the menu, the changes have reverted. I've tried chmod'ing them.. chmod o=rwx /mnt/folder I used 'o' because I can't seem to change the group permission for the folder. The shared folder I am mounting is formatted in NTFS and the other in ext3, I can't change the permissions of either.
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.
I've reached a point in my Slackware journey where I feel confident enough to remove my Mint 10 linux. It used to be my 'go to distro' when I trashed my Slackware installation. Now, I have Slax on a USB and I think that is enough.Mint 10 occupies /dev/sda5 (root) and /dev/sda6 (home) while Slackware occupies /dev/sda7 (root) and /dev/sda8 (home).If I delete the /dev/sda5 & /dev/sda6 partitions, can I very safely resize /dev/sda7 and /dev/sda8 to use the space freed up?
I have noticed recently a somewhat alarming amount of weird 'isms' about Gnome. In this case I have my fstab settings for a specific HDD to automount a itself with user rw privliges. I am open to believing my fstab is not configured correctly so here is how it is written.
it automounts and I can unmount it as user and remount and so on. Using the command line I would have no problem making a directory with md /media/backup/Pictures However, if I double click on the icon that appears or browse to the location /media/backup/ and right click in that folder I can't create a folder and when I tried to drag and drop into that folder it said I didn't have the appropriate permissions
I've carelessly installed grub on hda5 instead of hda, using: # grub-install /dev/hda5 And now my hda5 cannot be mounted with ntfs-3g. Here the error message 'mount' gives: Failed to mount '/dev/hda5': Invalid argument The device '/dev/hda5' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.
As far as I know, grub-install rewrites the 1st sector of the device, and I've been reading this guide on recover the 1st sector of an NTFS partition. The problem is that the Disk Probe tool is available in Windows only. Is there any similar software in Debian to do the same thing (i.e allows us to edit sectors of the hard drives available in the computer)? Any easier tool / method to restore the NTFS partition without read and write sectors manually.
I've installed Arch Linux onto my Western Digital SATA drive.I love it, best ever, however, I need the fglrx proprietry driver for better 3-d performace, and decided to create a new partition. I decided to install Linux Mint.Sadly, in all my noobishness, I forgot about the 4 primary partition limit (oops!) and as I have /, /home, swap, and /boot partitions (all primary) already installed, I have run into a bit of a problem.I resized my /home partition (almost 500GB) to about 225, and was then told I have over 200GB unusable space. Is it possible for me to change at least 1 of my primary partitions to logical partitions AND keep all the data intact (AND edit the arch configuration so that it'll still work) so I can install a second linux? I sincerely doubt it
I have a Node mounted from my Appserver (Solaris) to DBserver (Solaris), the reason why I Mount is that My Oracle writes file using UTIL_File in Dbserver only, so now I done the Mount and I can create file using VI in the Mounted point. But My UTIL_file is not able to create a file, the reason might be that Oracle writes only as ORA user and my Appserver has no such user, for that I have given the permission 777 for that particular folder, but no use, so I wonder do I need additional permission for this.
I'm just wondering because I'm going to to test out just how many partitions I can make and mount on GPT. Is there a theoretical limit on the amount of partitions or mounts allowed? I was thinking there would be depending on if you were running i386 or x86_64 because both can only handle up to a certain interger.
Created partitions, some of them LVM, in a server, say A. Did the same for another server, B, but created one more LVM partition.
Installed RHEL in A, and some other applications. Made dump files for each partition of A and restored all of them them in B. No error in that process, except B wouldn't boot. Did chroot /mnt/sysimage and grub-install /dev/sda--still no good. B came to a halt with GRUB> dispalyed. <tried many things many times.. searching Googles..but w/o luck) Gave up, and restored the bootloader part using OS CD -- I say restored because now B boots ok and I can see application that I had installed in A. So far so good.
Problem: that extra LVM partition is missing! I did not knowingly overwrite it, so where did it go? Somebody is keeping it from being displayed!
Is it the grub.conf that tells the OS what to mount and what not to? If yes, problem is , grub.conf is missing in B. In A, it is in /boot/grub/. df -kh shows other partions (some of them LVM) just fine.. what is going on?
I tracked a file called menu.lst in a strange place, in /usr/share/doc/grub-0.97.. but I didn't see any entry that loads partitions.
I have 2 partitions on my computer:one is "64 GB ext4" (with Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit)and the other one is "Data 436 GB NTFS" (just for storing files)On startup the second partition is not mountedefore I click on "Locais" this is in Portuguese (the button between Applications and System on the top bar) > "Data".
I'm using fedora8.When i mount shared folder on windows,it was mounting and i can browse the files and directories in terminal as i have full permissions on that.But,when i open the mounted directory in GNOME Environment,it was saying you did not have permissions to see the contents,every directory and file has been locked.
i reinstalled opensuse yesterday.when i turn on my system every time i need to enter my root password to mount my partitons.please see the following image.i want to automount all partitions on startup without giving root password(before reinstalling opensuse it didn't ask root password to mount my partitions)
My Laptop has Ubuntu 9.04 and I am using it for the past one year. I have four partitions. Gparted Screen Shot attached. /dev/sda5 was mounted as "Laptop 2" /dev/sda6 was mounted as "Laptop 3"
But from today morning I was not able to access any of the files from my hard disk. When I press the "Computer" Menu Item from the "Places" menu I could access all the files on my hard disk. It shows an error message attached with this thread. The system boots perfectly and work perfectly. "Laptop 2" and "Laptop 3" disappeared.
I searched the net and found ways to mount the Partitions with these following commands. sudo nano /etc/fstab # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5) .....
Is there any way I could use "Laptop 2" and "Laptop 3" as my mount points as it was earlier.
Does anybody know how to have partitions (not removable media) auto-mounted at boot?It would be great so I do not have to click them for first use.By the way, may it be pre-configured in ubuntu to do that for everyone?
I am using direct mounts because I like being able to cd to the directory and use tab completion..versus indirect mounts where you can not do that since the directories are virtual.But, why does the /proc/mounts show these directories mounted(I have not cd to them)? Are they technically mounted? The reason why I use automount is because if I ever have power failures at least not all filesystems that are not being used will be unmounted and not corrupted.
I've been searching for a solution get mount my NTFS FakeRAID automatically when 9.10 64-bit starts, but haven't managed to find a solution.Currently, after boot, dmraid activates my RAID automatically but does not map the partitions on the drive:
Code: $ ls /dev/mapper/ control isw_bibdafajea_Vault
I have samba installed. I also have a Windows NTFS disk mounted on Ubuntu. To share the file, I migrate to the folder with the file manager, right click on it and select "Sharing Options". I get the message
'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot share path /mnt/Windisk/<path> as we are restricted to only sharing directories we own. Ask the administrator to add the line "usershare owner only = false" to the [global] section of the smb.conf to allow this.
