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.
Kubuntu Maverick Meerkat 10.10 says "Unable to contact KDED". This in return disables all of my KDE services. I have already freshly installed 10.10 2 times. Also when I first login it says KWIN has crashed, but I see it running in the service Manager. I have no internet service without KDE services.
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 am having a problem with Dolphin where if I am trying to view the files in an extra partition I have mounted it crashes. It only does it on partitions not usually mounted at start up. The error it gives is:
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.
I was attempting to format a flash drive, and well, used the wrong sdX device. I've run DiskInternals Partition Recovery tool, and all my files are still there (you have to pay $139 to have it restore the files). Is there any way using tools in linux to restore the ntfs partition/files? It was a single disk with the partition taking the entire drive. I've tried mounting it with the -t option, but it says invalid ntfs signature. Man, two lessons the hard way, make sure you backup (duh) and be careful what you type as root.
I am running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS with Kernel 2.6.32-22-generic-pae I was originally using usbmount to autmont the western digital external usb drive I had attached to the system and it was working great. However, while I was adding files to the drive i deleted all of the directories and files that came on the drive out of box such as 'autorun.inf' and an autorun directory containing an icon for the drive.. when I rebooted the drive was no longer mounted, I tried to un/reinstall usbmount a few times but it still didnt work, so I wound up adding the drive into my fstab, my fstab line reads like this
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 am trying to restore an NTFS partition from a backup and I need the new drive to have the old (dead) drive's UUID (which I recorded).I really really really cannot use the option of changing fstab to mount using a new UUID, for this case I need the old UUID that existed on the other drive.Is there some ntfs equivalent of tune2fs that'll let me change the UUID on an ntfs partition?
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.

Is there a program that will reread the partition table and update the kernel even if one of the unmodified partitions is mounted? I installed my system on one partition, then I added another with free space. Now I want to format the second partition, but the kernel doesn't know about it yet. I tried sfdisk -R /dev/sda, but it refuses while the root partition is mounted. Is there anyway I can avoid rebooting?
I have a HP laptop with vista business 64 which (Vista) fell over last month. It's there, but won't boot after some stupid twat wiped the partition table, which upset grub, and had to resort to testdisk. Anyhow it means I have fix my box. I have a download which seems to require windows. I registered and got a windows downloader :-((. The @$�! thing writes a zero length file under wine. Any one with the inside track on this compile error from ntfsprogs?

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.
using suse 11.3 and kde 4.4.4 on the mounted fat32 partition I cannot change icons partition is mounted in fstab in this way:/dev/sda8/ /dati vfat user, users, gid=users, umask=0002, utf8=true, 0, 0.I can create files folders modify, move and save them on the partition but if I try to change the icon (in dolphin right click>properties>click on icon) of the /eros folder (or any other folder or link) system gives me this error:impossibile salvare le proprieta' , non hai accesso sufficiente per scrivere su /dati/eros/.directory tha in english is something like this: impossoble save properties, you havent enough permission access to write on /dati/eros/.directory this happen also as superuser I remember that with suse 11.0 or 10.3 I was able to change icons on fat32 partitions, now with 11.3 I cannot, there ought to be a way to do what I did with the previous version with this 11.3 brand new ad more advanced version shouldn't it?
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 just installed ubuntu via the windows executable and I couldn't mount my NTFS partition. I found this a little odd and I checked fdisk and it seems to think I don't have an ext4 partition as my entire internal HD is displayed as NTFS.
Here's the fdisk output:
When i try to mount the NTFS partition /dev/sda2 i get the following output:
I can't make heads or tails out of this. Anyone know what's going on here?
Windows recognizes that 30GB were taken from the NTFS partition for my linux install. It reads the max partition size as 465GB. fstab reports the NTFS partition size as 488GB.
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.
I want to change my sda2 partition to ntfs type. i have installed GParted but it is returning a strange type of error. Here is the error dump file...

After update 11.2 to 11.4 copy jobs from netware 5.1 volume to local disk linux system does crash after a couple of seconds. I might have to do if there a allot of small files in that job. If happend system reboot is required because unmount netware volume nor delete copied files to the local linux system is not possible. Recompiling ncpfs package not possible because error free source package ncpfs version 2.2.6 might not be availble.
