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.
until recently, they did fstab mount quite happily, but now, they don't
the error I get is:
Code: Mountall mount /media/win7  terminated with status 21 My fstab has not changed but here it is: Code: /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 vfat noauto 0 0 UUID=da252821-a30d-415b-84cb-adca92be5b72 / ext4 defaults 0 1
Oh if I make the windows drive the first avail, then it boots just fine.
I have installed ubuntu on my notebook, and there are 4 partitons in the hdd, all are NTFS, only one is ext4.
the problem is i deleted some hidden folders(in ubuntu which are not hidden, such as recyclebin and file information table folders) in ntfs partitions, now i need to reinstall the windows 7 back, i have a doubt that even windows will ever recognize those partitions again?
I know nothing about linux. But my friend says linux is good. So, I kept a copy of fedora core 10 i386. My fiend has a lot of movies about 100 in his ipod. So, I took it. It contains lot of viruses and I opened the ipod in windows but my windows has malfunctioned due to the virus. So, I have installed the fedora core 10 i386. I have some important information in the windows ntfs partitions. How do i mount those ntfs partitions.
I have a windows box running w2003 server on 1 volume with 2x ntfs basic partitions. c: = the windows bit, d: = the data bit for user data.I have cloned (clonezilla) the volume to another and deleted the data (d bit and want to extend the c: into the freed space.I'm booted from a partedmagicv5 cd and using gparted to attempt this.I can't see a way to do this with gparted but then, I could be thick. Maybe I clone off reformat and copy back?Is there a better way or even is this the correct forum (please don't refer me to Microsoft website:-) for this type of question?This is a test box so not worried about breaking it, but the test is to try to solve a live problem at a school I support which is running out of hd space.
I was installing Linux Debian on a machine and my usb external drive (320 GB) was attached with it (It was on NTFS that time). During installation I deleted all the partitions from machine and from my external drive. Can I recover the data from this drive?
I have been given Toshiba Tecra S11 with windows 7 running on it to install Ubuntu 10.04. Toshiba has a bunch of utilities running on the machine set up as dev/sda1, dev/sda, dev/sda3 and dev/sda4. I do not know where to start because of these existing partitions.
What I'm trying to do is to grant my regular user to locally mount partitions and shutdown the machine without a password. Here is what I've done to /etc/sudoers:
Host_Alias LOCAL = localhost Cmnd_Alias SHUTDOWN = /sbin/shutdown Cmnd_Alias MOUNT = /bin/mount, /bin/umount <my_username> LOCAL=(root) NOPASSWD: SHUTDOWN, MOUNT %wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
My user is a member of wheel group and I want to type the password for each sudo command except for shutdown and mount. However I am asked for a password whenever I execute "sudo mount [...]" or "sudo shutdown [...]".
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?
I've got a Desktop System that Automounted Two NTFS partitions in F10 so I could declare them SAMBA Shares and have my other XP and Vista Machine Access them whether my dual boot machine ran XP or F10. Now I've switched to F11 and cannot get the NTFS Partitions to Automount at boot. If I browse with COMPUTER and let the system mount the NTFS partitions once it is running the mount command returns the following output:
I believe I need to modify /etc/fstab but cannot get the syntax correct to save my life.
I have just managed to install OpenSuSE 11.3.When I try to access a NTFS partition (holding my .MP3s) I get the error message.There is no application installed that can open files of the type block device (inode/blockdevice).Do you want to install one? Attempting to install one doesn't seem to lead anywhere othe than the same sequence. I used to be able to read NTFS partitions with 11.2 - what has changed?
I am using jaunty. I have it installed in a 80 GB ext3 HDD. (This is sdb) I have another 500 GB. Its NTFS. (This is sda) It has 3 partitions. Download, Movies, Dump. They are probably sda1, sda2 and sda3 respectively. Few days ago when I was using intrepid, all three partitions were showing in the Places menu. But I was being able to mount Movies and Dump. Not the Download one. It was continuously saying 'unable to mount'. Now, after fresh installation of jaunty (not upgraded from intrepid) only Download partition is showing in the Places menu. There is no option for the other two partitions.
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'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
My computer has 2 O.S.- WindowsXP and Fedora13, and also two 500GB Hard Disks. For HD1 Partition1 is NTFS, a few FAT partitions and last one is Fedora13. HD2 has 2 NTFS of equal size. Fedora13 always showed NTFS partitions on HD1 as 30GB HD, FAT partitions correctly and HD2 as a single 500GB HD with the contents of 1st partition of this HD i.e. contents of 2nd partition of HD2 were never shown in Fedora13. XP showed everything correctly. Recently XP is becoming hung on start up as 2nd HD is connected. But Fedora is showing as previousPl. suggest me the solution as I have a lot data on the 2nd partition of HD 2.
I have two ntfs partitions I use to store music and data. I've been using them in all my linux boxes without any problems. Simply use Ntfs-3g with noatime and everything works great.
However, since the update to OpenSuse 11.3 writing to my NTFS partitions takes FOREVER. I've specified noatime, relatime and norelatime successively without success. The partitions have plenty of space and are defragmented.
When copying large files, It starts fast at first, but in the last hundred MB it slows down to about 1.5MB/s. Even after the transfer is supposedly done, the HD led remains on and all other read/write activity involving the partition is completely halted. This can take between 5 minutes to 10 or more depending on the size of the file. When copying several small files, (100 MB or less) it starts at about 1.5MB/s from the beginning.
I have the latest versions of fuse and ntfs-3g installed
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.
I'm new to OpenSuse 11.2, In Yast partitions configurations, I've mounted all NTFS partitions successfully without ticking "read-only", and according to this webpage: NTFS - openSUSE I checked my fstab file, there's no "-ro" in the file. But I still couldn't write to any mounted NTFS partitions, I can't do paste file, can't save changed files into NTFS partition.
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 am having a dual boot setup with Lucid Lynx and Windows 7. I want to automatically mount the NTFS partitions whenever I login to Lucid. I am looking for a graphical tool to set this up. Kindly suggest one.
