Ubuntu :: Mount A NTFS Partition As /home Folder In Karmic?

Mar 7, 2010

I'm looking for a central location on my network of 1 Karmic and 3 XP Pros for my Documents, Videos, Music etc.

I have an empty 1TB drive in my Karmic box currently formatted as one NTFS partition and I was thinking of mounting that drive in the Karmic /home folder.

Will Karmic be all right using an NTFS partition as the /home folder?

Ubuntu :: Make A Partition Of The /home Folder NTFS And The System Ext4?

Apr 27, 2011

I have one computer with windows and one with ubuntu. I have an external drive (FAT32) with files taken from an NTFS (mp3s and such) and I would like to put them and use them on an ext4 ubuntu platform. Can I make a partition of the /home folder NTFS and the system ext4 and function properly? I do have configuration files in the /home folder since Im building a domain controller that utilizes samba on ubuntu: would I be better off using a dual boot with windows/ubuntu and placing the files on the Windows partition? what is my best option?>

Debian Installation :: Critical Bug Of "mount -t Ntfs" Cause NTFS Partition Broken

May 2, 2010

About dual boot system with winxp and lenny.

Storage information:
1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100
1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133
SATA:WD 1000
2nd primary:DVD
2nd secondary:DVD▒RW

Winxp in 1st primary.I did a fresh install of lenny on 1st secondary.

info about lenny setup:
1.Partition list:/boot,/,/home,swap
2.Every partition is XFS except swap.

At the end of installion,lenny installed grub on (hd0) that is 1st primary.

Everything seems OK.Lenny runs OK.

But when I switch back to windows xp,the diskmgmt can not detect hdd's info and the system meets a problem of shutting down.

After many times of trying.
I solved the problem by the following way.
1.Boot with windows xp's install CD and use fixmbr on (hd0).
2.Boot with lenny's install DVD , do a grub>root (1,0)>setup (hd1)
After that,edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change (hd0,0) to (hd1,0) and also (hd1,0) to (hd0,0).
3.Reboot and Press F8 for a boot menu then I can select which disk to boot.
windows boot from 1st primary's mbr,lenny boot from lenny's grub.

The problem is caused by a bug between GRUB and windows' mbr and maybe more about GRUB and XFS.

General :: Move /home To Ntfs Partition?

Sep 5, 2010

There was a Toshiba Satellite notebook with XP I decided to install Fedora 13 in dual boot mode.So, I booted with Gparted and shrunk the ndows XP partition to just 24 GB.Then I set up partitions for Linux this way/boot, ext4 256 MB/, ext4 16 GB/home, ntfs 176 GBswap, 8 GBI intentionally left about 8 GB left just in caseThen I proceeded to install Fedora 13.I used the customized mode to use the already set up partitions and keep Windows XP.At the moment of setting the mounting points, fine with /boot, / and swap. But Anaconda wouldn't accept mounting point for /home.I went on anyway.Fedora got set up and run moothly.However, /home resided in / with only 10 GB left.And the /home partition could be seen as a separate disk with its 176 GB.This is /etc/fstab:

# /etc/fstab
# Created by anaconda on Sun Sep 5 05:46:26 2010

Ubuntu :: How To Mount A NTFS Partition

Mar 23, 2011

im looking for a command for mounting an ntfs partition. what i want to do is to put that command to the "after startup applications" option. that's because that ntfs partition is my storage partition, i play steam games [win7 dualboot, thats why that partition is ntfs], download movies etc. in my places menu, its called 190GB Filesystem, and when i click it, it mounts up. but that means i have to click it everytime i boot up, because vuze can't locate the files if it isnt mounted.

by the way : /media/7C1EE4E21EE49684 when its mounted

Debian :: Share Home Among Distributions - Store Files All In "/home" Folder Of Extended Ubuntu Partition

May 1, 2011

Installed Ubuntu along with Debian on my Notebook and use Grub Manager to choose between them on startup. Since i like Debian now a lot (in past days it was a very hard system to handle, but there has been some progress i noticed), i have to change some things (want Debian as main system now) For Ubuntu i have: (was meant to be main system on Notebook) "/", "/home" and a "swap" partition, but since i am now going to use mainly Debian, i wanted to store my files all in the "/home"-folder of my extended Ubuntu partition (has much more space available) not in the "/home" folder of the Debian system. So i want both (Debian and Ubuntu) to use the same extended partition ("/home") which i created for Ubuntu to save their files like downloads, videos, and so on.

In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details.

Ubuntu :: Can't Mount NTFS Ddrescue Image Of Partition?

Jun 14, 2010

I am trying to recover some important data from a 273 gig NTFS partition that was used in windows 7. The laptop was dropped and would not boot the next day. As an external drive I could see 2 smaller partitions (30 gig and 500 meg), but the main partition was RAW and requesting to be formatted... so I came to learn about Knoppix 6.2.1 as my live boot cd and ran ddrescue to recover an almost complete image of the bad partitionddrescue -n /dev/sdc1 /media/sda1/image.img /media/sda1/logfile.logI then ran it one more time:ddrescue -r 1 /dev/sdc1 /media/sda1/image.img /media/sda1/logfile.logthe image was made with 741 errors (amounting to 160 megabytes)So Now I have my partition as image.img which I want to mount.

First I tried
sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop /media/sda1/image.img /mnt/recovered
sudo mount -t ntfs -o loop,force /media/sda1/image.img /mnt/recovered

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount NTFS (windows) Partition?

I have a windows partition on my drive, and I want to access it without having to mount it first, etc. There are just two partitions, windows and Ubuntu. I am running Ubuntu 10.04.1 so I want to mount it on startup. I saw this article: [URL] but I don't know if what it describes will work as it's almost 2 years old. I'm not adverse to commands, in fact would probably prefer those.

Ubuntu :: Segmentation Fault When Trying To Mount NTFS Partition?

Dec 17, 2010

I have a small NTFS partition with a Windows 7 setup.I haven't used it for a long time, but today I booted into Windows 7, which worked fine. However, after a reboot I can no longer boot from the W7 partition (leads to an almost immediate reboot) and what's worse, I cannot mount the partition in Ubuntu either (tried both 9.10 and 10.10).When trying it in Nautilus or manually using mount.ntfs /dev/sda2 /tmp/ntest, I get messages like the following:

[ 123.590083] mount.ntfs[5120]: segfault at 7fff3f1e0ff8 ip 00007ffb6bb820a9 sp 00007fff3f1e1000 error 6 in libntfs-3g.so.79.0.0[7ffb6bb5a000+42000]

Ubuntu :: Clean Install Of 11.04 Won't Mount Home Folder

May 2, 2011

I had my home folder on it's own partition, and I decided to do a clean install of 11.04. when I put the disk, when I went to configure the partitions, I I re-formatted the / partition, and I selected my home partition as my new home partition and I made sure the format was NOT selected. after everything got done getting installed and rebooted. 11.04 just creates a new home directory and does not use the whole home partition.

I still have my data saved on it, when I go to the disk utility it shows the same amount of used space before I did a re-installed. If I go to the files system and click on home it shows my user from the last install and it shows the user from the new install. when I click on the user from last install it shows 2 files: Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop
and: README.txt

get my home partition mounted for my home folder

also when I set up the new install I used the same password for access for the ring keys and for login

┬┐Could you tell me how can I mount NTFS partitions in order that they be mounted at boot time and can be accessed (read and write) by any user?

I know, I should edit "/etc/fstab" file. But I don┬┤t know very well how to modify it.

And... ┬┐Should I create the mount point directory, also?

Fedora :: Auto Mount NTFS Partition 12?

Currently I have a dual boot system it consists of Fedora 12 and Windows Vista, at this time when I am logged into fedora 12 I can select the windows vista partition in the f12 file manager, I am than prompted for the root password and after entering the password, the drive mounts as read/write with no problem.
