I have an old computer where i tried to install openSUSE 11.4 today. While installing it showed some error regarding like ntfs drive mounting... i skipped those messages. But now no ntfs drives are are available in openSUSE. Is there any way to get those drives back?
I used to dual boot openSuse and XP but I yanked out my linux HDD and now my Windows will not boot, I get a GRUB error 22 (missing partition).This PC does not have a CDrom so I can not simply use the fixmbr from an XP recovery console.I have booted into opensuse Live CD (Flash Drive) and tried to use Yast but it gives me an error it can not write because of the partitioning. I also tried the recover shell but am totally lost trying to re-write GRUB because I can not find the menu.lst file.
I use OpenSuse 11.2 and Windows XP. After booting to OpenSuse, I can see NTFS drives are mounted but I am always being asked for a password to access them. Is it possible to access NTFS drives without typing a password? The reason is I created links referring to folders and files stored on the NTFS drives.
Recently i started going into OSes other than Windows. So, i installed openSUSE 11.3 32bit on my system in dual boot with Windows7 32bit. Everything was okay But i couldn't find any drivers for my laptop. My problems are :
1. cannot access NTFS drives. 2. cannot connect to the internet through LAN 3. cannot connect to the internet through Wireless.

I did some modification of fstab, and works, but for some strange reason, there are drives shown in the Places menu that shouldn't be there when the drives (they are usb drives) are unplugged. I had to put them in fstab, because they are mp3 players and I need user privelages in order to sync them. With nothing plugged in the usb ports,I checked, and they aren't shown in mtab, and only Sansa-e260 and JOSHS PHONE are shown in fstab, although as far as I know, they shouldn't appear in Places when unmounted. Is there a way to reset it?
i'm tying to dual boot Vista64 (already installed) and Fedora 10 x86_64. I am running a Dell XPS 410 running 2 sata hard drives raid 0 (ICH8DH). I started the process by shrinking my C drive on disk0 leaving 64.45GB of unallocated space. Next I rebooted into Fedora install DVD and when i get to blue graphical install screen i get message asking if my drive is GPT and if it is it may be corrupted. I click NO, and it comes up with a message telling me i have to initialize my drive if i want to use it ( have to click NO twice) and if i do it i will lose all my data.
i can click no and keep proceding through the install until i get to the partition setup screen. No hard drives or partitions are shown. I've tried googling the problem and get bits of pieces of information scattered in different parts but nothing conclusive to my problem i think. As far as my background of knowledge goes, I'm new to the linux community but give me a thorough guide and i'll do fine (i hope). I've been using fedora on a separate laptop for 2 days now .
I'm new to openSUSE just installed a chess program using YaST2 software installer. The program is called phalanx. It doesn't show up in the application menu in KDE Desktop and I don't know how to start the program.
I updated my GRUB config. I reordered some menu items and set openSUSE as default OS.When I boot into openSUSE, I am no longer greeted by Geeko when openSUSE is loading. I only see text from the boot procedure scroll by like it's still the 90s. While there's a certain coolness in seeing openSUSE switch to runlevel 5 and all that jazz, I want my chameleon back.A few weeks ago, I configured openSUSE to boot with flag vga=0x3ef so that it would boot with my preferred resolution immediately. This used to work fine. Since this morning, openSUSE crashes when X is attempting to start. I can still boot into openSUSE by removing that flag, but even then I still don't see the chameleon.
I downloaded the live CD (KDE version) and moved it in a usb flash memory (using ImageWriter). When i restarted, the main menu was shown and i selected the first item (Start live cd. After a few seconds, a black screen was shown and then nothing happened.
I have install the openSUSE 11.2. During install several error messages were shown. "I/O error" and "Error 2". The operating system works normally but icons of files and toolbar buttons are not shown. What should I do?

i am a new user to linux, i installed debian on dual boot with windows 7but now i am unable to access the ntfs drives used by windows originally from the debian OSi am wondering what could be the problem and how can i solve it
Not sure where to put this so please let me know if this does not belong here.I recently noticed that the "eject" command will not work on NTFS formatted USB drives. It errors out with something like:umount: <path to mount point> is not in fstab (and you are not rootIt works if you are root. I can also eject the drive from the nautilus desktop as an unprivileged user. This command also works if the drive is FAT formatted and I am an unprivileged user.I only started to notice this behavior after I switch to F14. F11, F12, and F13 did not seem to have this issue.Anyone have any clues as to how to fix this?BTW, auto-mounting works just fine, just plug the drive in (no "mount" command necessary). I'm only having issues with the "eject" command as an unprivileged user.
I used to be able to mount windows hds just fine in any of the linux distros that I've used .. It always show up in "Computer" and I have an option to mount it but recently I've installed xubuntu and I can't seem to find "Computer" anywhere nor can I find my windows hardrives.. how I could mount my windows hardrive on xubuntu?? Also..I can't seem to find "Computer" under places :/..whats up with that
i would like to have all my ntfs drives mount @ start up here is the command im currently useing sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/D -o forcei have made the folders D E F etc now i know that the command for starting restarting and stoping samba changed in 10.04 so did something change with mounting ntfs drives
Curently i am using lucid.Also I have installed maverick in my virtual box for my testing purposes.In lucid i can see all my NTFS drives but in maverick(which is installedn virtual box)i cant see any of my NTFS partition
I use Ubuntu 11.04 (gnome) and have a ntfs partiton that shows up in the "places" menu that is normally in the gnome panel. But I think that partition isn't mounted till I click on the entry in this menu (when I want to access it from any other place, shortcuts for example, that doesn't work). How can I correctly mount all partitions I want on startup? Recently I tried something in the /etc/fstab file but don't know if this is correct...
I have a bunch of NTFS externals set up as samba shares on Linux Mint and they'll work just perfectly, but after a while they will stop functioning and the folders will be empty. It fixes itself if I restart my computer but only for a little while. This happens whether i access them locally or over the network through samba. I don't want to set the as ext3/4 because I need to access on windows from time to time (i'm dual booting) and I don't want to set them as fat32 because they I have files over the filesize limit on there.
I have a dual boot comp with wins 7 and suse 11.3. There are 3 ntfs drives installed. I can read and write on 2 of them but I on one I cant. I can see the drive bute when I open it, there are no folders showing.The fstab is ok.
so i have a main drive (320gb) which currently has kubuntu 9.04 installed.i also have a side drive (60gb) on which i made a backup of all my windows files (i wanted to migrate to new windows OS but messed up, long stupid story...) and also had opensuse 11.0 installed.now when i open either 2 linux versions, the ntfs partition isnt recognised anymore.there are files on it that i need, including the iso of the windows version i want to install next to opensuse (just like my old windows version)
I've just installed 11.4 and then updated to gnome 3. I've noticed that Nautilus doesn't appear to mount my windows NTFS partition. I find this odd because both Ubuntu and Fedora detect and mount it just fine in Gnome 3 (I've been trying all 3 this week).
I have a computer that's booting Ubuntu 9.10 from the first of 4 drives. The other 3 drives are formatted as NTFS. Is it possible for my 9.10 to share the NTFS drives to the network so my other network users can access my NTFS drives while I'm booted to 9.10?
I have what may appear an odd question. I have never installed Linux before, but I'm very impressed with the Ubuntu philosophy and this forum so I thought I'd give it a shot. I have a Windows wifi network at home with three laptops: One is Windows 7 and the other two are running Vista. My wife uses the Windows 7 laptop and I am using one of the Vista boxes, with the other one currently running in a spare room. I'd like to use the Vista box as a NAS (for our photos, backups, etc) but I need to keep Vista on it for a variety of reasons. Just hooking up the USB drives to the Vista laptop and sharing them out isn't really the way I want to go, and besides it wouldn't let me install Linux...
What I'd like to do is install Ubuntu into VMWare Player or VirtualBox and have it share out the USB drives on the network. The drives are NTFS and I'd like to keep them that way, because I'd like the flexibility of being able to plug them directly into one of our laptops if need be, or access them from the Vista host OS. I understand I'll need to install SAMBA to get this shared out, and I found a tutorial for that so I can try that out. I did download and play around with FreeNAS, but it has lots of issues with NTFS corruption whereas Linux has the NTFS driver for a few years now. I haven't tried an Openfiler appliance yet but that may be a plug-and-play option as well. My questions are:..........
running Release 10.04(lucid) Kernal linux 2.6.32-25-generic Gnome 2.30.2
installation of ubuntu before updating process because on lost audio sound due to drive issues ect.all 2 hard drives were recognizable. want to put them on my desktop. After upgrade that are not visible only if in type sudo fdisk -1
Disk /dev/sdb: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
tried using pmount but no joy ! how to find via something like on Xp control panel or my computer ?
I'm using windows 7 now and I want to install ubuntu as the main OS to the current C:drive(which has installed windows currently) but with keeping the data in other ntfs drivers(D:, E:, F: ) on my hard disk. I can't take backups of all data in other drivers and if that data erased with ubuntu installation I will face a very big problem in future. So how to install ubuntu 10.10 only for a one drive(c: drive) without erasing the data on other ntfs drivers? and I uses nvidia 8 series graphic card and are there any special things to follow to install it's official linux drivers(.run) or is it enough to use default drivers on ubuntu.
I have one drive for Kubuntu and 4 other NTFS drives. When I'm using Ubuntu Desktop Environment (GNOME), I seem to be able to delete files, create new folders, files etc, in all the NTFS drives. That is, I have full permissions to make changes in the NTFS drives. But when I switch to KDE, this isn't possible. Options like rename, delete, cut, etc, aren't working, they aren't highlighted.Is there any way I can have full permissions to modify NTFS drives in KDE?
I have a dual boot setup with a fair amount of files in my windows volume. I noticed that the Ubuntu 10.4 GNOME version (at least) does not auto mount my NTFS drive. Of course as I have seen from various post this gets annoying when opening up a program that loads previous files before I for ex, click the '110GB FileSystem' icon from Nautilus or similar...that seems to mount it for me then... I want my 110GB NTFS volume to mount automatically so I dont have to do this process everytime I reboot.
I found a post on the forum (the latest one I could find) below that recommends installing ntfs-config. The post is from May 2008 but mentions 10.10 (via edits) so I'm confused and wondering if there is an easier/default way..or this is still the way to go? After several screw ups editing system files manually, Im very cautious about doing it in this case because its a work computer and frankly the uninsttall or editing the fstab manually worries me.
