I'm new to debian ,I was trying to mount my NTFS partition but I did that only with read permissions I couldn't install ntfs-config(allthough I have ntfs-3g installed).So I want to figure out how to mount my partitions with read/write permissions automatically as the systeme starts ?
First off let me say that I love working with Ubuntu. It's a great OS to learn Linux on. Now on to my problem. I have a laptop that dual boots. Ubuntu 9.10 x64 and Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Been working just fine. I was using NTFS-Config to auto mount the Win7 partition during startup of Ubuntu. It has been running fine. I am able to move files between the linux partition and the NTFS partition with no problem. Now I've come across a problem. I big problem. Just this week I installed VirtualBox onto Ubuntu. I started creating virtual machines. 6 in all (3 Win 2k3, 1 2k8 and 1 Win7). I was saving the virtual machines to the NTFS drive as this was by far my largest drive. I used a directory titled "virtualbox" under the c:/users/public directory. This setup was working great. Was able to get my vm's patched and up to date. Created several snapshots. Basically I was a happy camper.
Last night I booted into Windows 7. OS started fine. I was just surfing the web. After that I rebooted the system and entered Ubuntu and started Virtualbox. I tried to start a vm and it complained that the virtual harddrive was missing. I checked to make sure that the path was correct for the virtual drive and discovered that the entire virtualbox directory that I created on the NTFS partion was gone!!! Everything else was in place and intact including music and large video files that I had downloaded to the Ubuntu partion and moved the the NTFS partion.
I save these virtual machines???? Should I abandon using NTFS-Config. This is somewhat critical since I had took sometime to create this test lab and to have it disappear from simply booting into Windows 7 is crazy.
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'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 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.
I have a windows partition mounted that will not allow me to load my kubuntu 10.10 meerkat. i can enter an older kernal but my older kernal says cant contact kded and all my kde apps will not work such as wireless networking and autp ip configurations. although i can run the internet in this kernal wired however manually putting my ip and other numbers in for wireless connection fails. all other kernals do not load because they say i have a ntfs drive mounted. so my question is how can i unmount this drive and make my kernal work again or how can i fix kded from crashing on my second kernal so i can use that one. i have already tried sudo unmount /media/windows and other simular commands i also tried a mounting app and reinstalling kubunt desktop also check disk on windows with clean shut down does not work either.
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've made a dual boot with winXP. Most things are sorted out so that i can work, except.I'm trying to enter file write permissions for my ntfs drives using NTFS-config -I followed the ubuntu community documentation and it has installed, but it won't open! (there's no gui after password prompt)
I have an NTFS partition problem which prevents me from installing openSUSE on my desktop computer. It's not a trouble with installation, it's a security issue relating to NTFS.I have a desktop running XP exclusive, but wish to also go dual boot but can not because I have created a NTFS partitoin on my HD wich I don't wish others to know about.After booting window$, I am able to successfully unmount the partition using Diskpart, which is a command line program within that OS. Once unmounted, it is effectively hidden from those who might be snooping until I manually remount it. Essentially I remove the drive letter which makes it inaccessible to Windows.
(Yes I know a person with proper skills can easily find it, but that's not applicable in my case for those who would look)If I install openSUSE which I desperately desire, it will automatically locate and mount the NTFS partition I wish to hide, making it easily accessible to anyone booted up in SUSE.Changing the attributes to the associated files to "hidden" is not an option. I need that secret partion to remain unknown.How can I hide, deny access to, or prevent that particular NTFS partition from automatically being mounted in Suse? Once that security issue is resolved I look forward to using Suse again, like the other people do in our home.
When I plug in my external USB Hard drive which is formatted as a single NTFS partition, it is recognized and mounted automatically, a nautilus window pops open. Unfortunately it is not writable. The reason is: the partition is mounted "ntfs" (which lacks write support) instead of "ntfs-3g". This is the output of mount after plugging in the drive:
$ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE type ntfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077)
I want this partition to be writable by just plugging it in.
The partition should not have any errors because a) I fsck'ed it windows and b) mounting it manually works:
$ sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/disk_/ $ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/disk_ type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096) $ devkit-disks --mount-fstype ntfs-3g --mount /dev/sdc1 Mounted /org/freedesktop/DeviceKit/Disks/devices/sdc1 at /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE $ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096) $ gnome-mount -nbtd /dev/sdc1 $ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
How can I get ntfs drives to be mounted as writable by default, preferrably without having to modify fstab?
I tried to mount a drive via ntfs-config and the following error occured:
Mounting /media/mOVIES failed because of the following error:
Failed to read last sector (146876415): Invalid argument HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),
I have an NTFS file system nfs-automounted on our RedHat servers. Users can read and write to the file system no problem, and can create new files, edit them, and delete them to their heart's content. The only issue is that utilities such as "dos2unix" cannot create temporary working files:
$ dos2unix events.0818.dat dos2unix: converting file events.0818.dat to UNIX format ... Failed to open output temp file: Operation not permitted dos2unix: problems converting file events.0818.dat
This isn't limited to "dos2unix"; any other utility that creates a temporary working file gets the same problem. If I copy the file to a local file system like /tmp, it works fine. Here's the kicker: this works fine on Solaris systems. I can take the "dos2unix" utility over to a Solaris system that has that exact same NTFS file system automounted via NFS, and it works. No issues creating temporary working files at all.
When logged in as my standard user in Fedora 11 gnome desktop the installed ntfs-config tool will not open and gives an error which says this; "no authentication program found", and to run that ntfs-config as the root in a terminal. So then the only way to open that tool is to type that in a terminal, and it did open, but how can I fix this ? Can this issue be related to ownership and permissions of it ? Also the num lock does not come on during boot up, is there a easy fix for that too ? This is a recent fresh updated install from the DVD with the ext4 file system. All the ntfs-3g applications are installed as default, so I just added that enable ntfs write support tool with the package manager.
First of all, ntfs-config does not appear in the menu in openSUSE 11.4 Gnome 2.32. When I try to start it using the run command(Alt + F2) it gives the following error in a small window: Insufficient Rights. You need administrative rights to start this application. I then try to run it as root (su -l or su) and it gives the following error:
All these packages and others are already installed in my computer.
I have just installed 10.04 as an upgrade from 9.10.
I am having difficulty because none of the USB drives I am using are unmounting as they should be. normally speaking when erasing data from my USB key when you come to unmounting it it will ask if you would like to send this data to the recycle bin thus giving you back the extra storage space on the device. 10.04 isnt allowing me to send these items to the recycle bin ad doesn't give the option to do this.
10.10 MMeerkat - When I use a USB-stick or external hard drive, I don't get the "unmount" option but instead it says "safely remove drive".When I click this, Nautilus immediately crashes and is gone.Is this a known bug in 10.10?
I've spent the better part of an afternoon looking for a solution to a problem: backing up my installation of 10.10 as an image file to an external hard drive. My research has yielded a lot of suggestions for clonezilla, dd, and partimage/particlone, but those don't seem very appealing, due to a number of issues (can't backup live, copies free space as well, doesn't handle ext4, etc). Also why is clonezilla 150mb?
I'd like a simple solution that can clone an entire disk (used space only) to an explorable image file on a separate hard drive and be able to do it while the operating system is running on the disk. I used to use apricorn ez gig to do this on windows and it worked like a charm, but I can't seem to find a similar solution that creates and explorable .iso image file with linux. I've used superduer on osx, which is awesome and i wish there was something like that for ubuntu/linux.
Very frustrated. I have used Unix for ages so I understood the SysV startup stuff. But I have not had a lot of luck with Upstart. The other day I noticed that on every reboot my disks are getting fsck'd. I just recently put an ext2 on /tmp so this takes a while (the ext4 drives just rip through their journals).
The problem is no one is unmounting them on a KDE restart (4.X). I started out looking at /etc/init.d/umountfs and putting some logging in there. It never runs. This is despite that /etc/init has an upstart job that is supposed to run all the runlevel stuff.
I also tried to log some info in /etc/init/mountall-shell.conf which looks like it tries to do a umount -a on shutdown (which is probably not a good idea; you need to unmount in a particular order). That doesn't seem to happen either. I am not even sure how to troubleshoot this further. I suppose I need to see if the reboot( command has the same problem. Or if I shut down kdm first if it goes away.
I get the following error each time I try to safely remove the USB stick (by right-clicking on the USB stick icon on the desktop and choosing "Remove safely") code...
It used to work without errors when unmounting the USB from Nautilus window, but now, I get the same error when unmounting from there as well. Is it safe to assume that the stick can be removed even though the error message is displayed? What might be the cause? Also, I do not have any Nautilus-windows opened nor any applications that are locking any files on the USB stick while removing it.
I want to move my / partition to the end of my drive (sda). To do this with gparted, I have to unmount it, but I'm not comfortable with the idea of unmounting root partition... Should I do it from a live cd? More important : is the operation safe?
