Using: Debian Lenny. I want to mount 2 NTFS partitions in my /etc/fstab file, so that I needn't manually mount them when I want to use them. One of the partitions is the primary partition on the same hard disk as my Debian /, /home, and /swap partitions. The other is a 2nd internal hard disk.
a) Should I use ntfs-3g instead of ntfs as the /etc/fstab filesystem? I want to be able to read and write to the partitions as a user and not just as root.
b) I have read on the forum that "mounting NTFS partitions through fstab is not a great idea" - I thought that any dangers of doing so were ancient history. Why would it not be a good idea?
c) Which options should I use?
d) If I use 'user' instead of 'users' so that one specific user (me) can use the partitions, how do I specify which user name? (The man page is annoyingly unclear about this).
I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.
1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?
2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?
Nautilus mounts NTFS partitions when I acces them, and before mounting, it asks for root password. Is there a method to auto-mount ntfs partitions on Debian startup, without requiring root password each time they are automatically mounted ? And without installing additional packages.
i want to mount NTFS by normal users so i used the following entry in fstab /dev/sda6 /media/Mostafa ntfs-3g noauto,exec,rw,user 0 0 however when i try to mount the partition i get the following error Unable to mount Mostafa
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: Error opening '/dev/sda6': Permission denied Failed to mount '/dev/sda6': Permission denied Please check '/dev/sda6' and the ntfs-3g binary permissions, and the mounting user ID.

I am using CentOS 5.5 OS. I already install ntfs-3g rpm, but I don't know the command to mount network NTFS drive. I also want to mount it on my fstab file, so whenever it reloads, it can automatically mount on the specific folder.
I have a Windows partition encrypted with TrueCrypt. If I start TrueCrypt (or RealCrypt) I can mount the partition through the GUI. before I encrypted the partition I used to auto-mount it at boot using fstab and it would appear in my places bar in the file managers. Is it possible to auto-mount truecrypt partitions from fstab?
I'm using Kubuntu 9.10. Partitions get listed in the sidebar when I open the File Manager, but they don't get mounted under /media until I click on the entries. I do not want to use /etc/mtab and mount them under folders I create in /mnt; would prefer if there was a way to mount the partitions without Kubuntu waiting for me to click on the names.
According to a couple of different places, it's not possible for me to put a line in /etc/fstab to mount one of my partitions with owner and group not root; instead, I have to mount it in /etc/fstab, then chown & chgrp to my user. That seems ridiculously tedious and silly... is it true? I'm sure a short script could be written to get around it, but it seems obtuse for Linux not to allow that to be set in /etc/fstab.
I have two NTFS volumes I want to automount at boot. I can't get my user account to mount them in Fedora 10. I keep getting the message that the two lines I have edited in fstab are bad. The volumes are sda2 and sda8, and the volume names are SPACELAB and Spaceman. I also need to be able to mount an NTFS usb drive from time to time. I am getting frustrated, so I have posted my fstab file below,
# # /etc/fstab # Created by anaconda on Sun Mar 1 12:44:11 2009 #
I first noted a few weeks ago I couldn't mount my NTFS partitions using dolphin. At the time I was having problems with windows, so I thought - naturally, they are marked as dirty, no biggie-
However, I still can't mount them and I know they are clean. I get the error: "filesystem is neither well know nor in /proc/filesystem nor in /etc/filesystems" which is strange since I can mount just fine in the console using mount -t ntfs-3g.
On my laptop I have Windows and Ubuntu, and I use Ubuntu very often. How can I auto-mount the NTFS partitions once I run my Ubuntu without the need to manually ask to mount it and confirm with the root password each time and for each partition?
I have U1004 dual boot with MSW7 and sometimes want to mount those NTFS partitions for mostly reading operations. Ubuntu makes it easy by a single click in Nautilus. How to change this behavior and allow mount NTFS partitions with user's password only, like sudo behavior, for example? In addition, how to mount them read-only?
Note: I mount those NTFS partitions occasionally and there is nothing in fstab about it.
I used to be able to mount my external hard drive's ntfs partition by simply clicking on it, but now I can't anymore... I know that the last time I've used it with windoze, I had to force shut the **** thing down 'cause it was frozen real good (pretty unusual right !?!).The thing is, with ubuntu it sees it and mounts it no problem.
I Just Recently Installed OpenSUSE with GNOME Desktop and was surprised to know that none of my NTFS Partiitions were mounted to the Linux File System. Earlier I had Installed Open SUSE with KDE Desktop and there were no problems, everything was readily mounted and i could access the NTFS Partitions. I am a Total Newbie To Linux. Give Me The Syntax To Mount The NTFS Partitions in Following Partition Table Acquired with fdisk :
Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
I'v recently migrated from Ubuntu to Debian. however when attempting to browse one of my ntfs partitions I get the following error "Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume 'a' a is the name of the ntfs partition i'm trying to browse.I'm using Debian 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.
I've accidentaly corrupted my fstab and cut the ends of lines. There are now disk uid, mount point, filesystem for root and swap, but the mount parameters are missing.The system boots as readonly. What are default fstab mount parameters in Debian for ext4 root and swap?
I helped with the installation and put a / filesystem of around 20 GB and a /home partition of around 50 GB. He's a gaming freak and and installed lot of games in the last few days so running out of hdd space and he asked if there was a way he could take one of the ntfs partitions out and extend the / partition filesystem from 90 GB to say 220 GB. (The NTFS partition is around 100 GB).
Now one way would be to do everything (again) from scratch and put the filesystem as an lvm, another alternative googling gave me was to use gparted Live CD and extend the / filesystem . The downer seems to be that its possible gparted would mess up other partitions and realign stuff. At least that's what few of the websites I looked up and few people I talked on IRC spoke to me.
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.
Can mount.ntfs and mount.ntfs-3g reside simultaneously?
Whilst accessing an external NTFS drive mount.ntfs takes up a lot of CPU. I am not sure if its mounting the drive using mount.ntfs or mount.ntfs-3g? How do I find out and if they coexist how do I make the default mount drive ntfs-3g?
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 run a mediaserver on Archlinux, working perfectly (or almost). I have set up NFS v3 and that worked for me on these clients:
- Debian Lenny - Archlinux 64bit
Now I've upgraded my Lenny-box to squeeze and I see that 2 of my 3 shared folders (tdone and twatch) are mounted like they should and the third one (media) doesn't come up. A 'mount -a' as root gives this error: mount.nfs4: access denied by server while mounting (null) My relevant fstab-lines:
