Ubuntu :: Mount.ntfs And Mount.ntfs-3g Reside Simultaneously?

Mar 4, 2010

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?

General :: Setup Fstab To Automatically Mount NTFS Partitions - GUI To Set The Mount Permissions?

Feb 10, 2010

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?

Debian Installation :: Critical Bug Of "mount -t Ntfs" Cause NTFS Partition Broken

May 2, 2010

About dual boot system with winxp and lenny.

Storage information:
1st primary:SG 160G ATA 100
1st secondary:WD 160 ATA 133
SATA:WD 1000
2nd primary:DVD
2nd secondary:DVDRW

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.

Ubuntu :: Format Usb Stick Udf To Ntfs?

Jul 6, 2011

i have a usb stick divided in two; a partition of NTFS for the most part and a small annoying part of a few Mb in UDF which mounts every time as a cdrom. how do i get rid of the small UDF part?

I have tried to format everything as one big chunk in NTFS with Gparted without success.
I have also tried something i found on the net under windows: Start>>run>> type "CMD">> enter
2.type format X: /FS:NTFS (X would be the drive letter)

but it won't let me format the UDF part.

General :: Possible To Format System Drive As NTFS?

Feb 2, 2010

Is it possible to format a Fat32 Ubuntu system drive to ntfs leaving the program and data undisturbed? I created a gparted liveCD and used it to format a slave drive to ntfs. It worked perfectly. Can the gparted liveCD be used on the master drive similarly without destroying the existing files on it?

Ubuntu :: Converting 2 Mirrored NTFS Drives To Ext Format?

Mar 15, 2011

I have 2 drives mirrored via windows software raid and I plan to toss the drives into an Ubuntu server soon where they will also be mirrored. The server will have another drive for booting. What is the best way to get these mirrored drives into ext format while preserving my data? I plan to use software raid in Ubuntu as well. My only idea is to format a 3rd drive as ext and copy all the files over, seems inefficient though.

OpenSUSE :: When Using The Yast Partitioner To Partition A USB Stick There Was No Option For The Ntfs Format

Apr 25, 2010

When using the Yast partitioner to partition a USB stick, I noticed there was no option for the ntfs format, but has the fat option. Is this a missing functionality/lib or by design? I have all of the ntfs stuff installed. I used to use gparted for this, but decided to make my self use the Yast tools. I like to keep them in ntfs format to get around the 4GB data transfer limit and have them readable by Linux and Windows.

OpenSUSE Install :: Format The Parts Including /Home And Retain The Win / NTFS Part?

Jul 17, 2010

Attempting install of 11.3 on previous 11.2 dual windows boot box. I want to format the Linux parts including /Home and retain the Win / NTFS part. (dual boot) Peculiar behavior of install DVD. Here is fdisk -l that clearly indicates a 500 GB HD and the Win partition, extended partition and the 3 basic Linux partitions and they seem okay in total.

Linux-mocx:/ # fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x252d252c


I aborted the installation. What could possibly cause the 11.2 parts and bootloader to get this wacked up ? Outside of some sound issues the 11.2 install works okay for the most part. No crashing or lockups. Really want to get up to 11.3. though. I obviously have some work to do with 35 GB of missing space on the HD and Grub living someplace on the wrong side of the river. Suggestions and a pointer or two would be most welcome guys. ( I really don't want the pain of installing that �other� OP system or I'd reformat and reinstall nice and clean.) Do I need to repartition, change mount points and reinstall Grub maybe.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount / Format USB

Mar 6, 2011

I have USB which is already not recognised windows and when I insert while ubuntu is on. It does recognise it. But does not allow me to mount, no matter through command line, or won't let me format it through disk utility.

~ When I do `sudo fdisk -l` .. there is no entry of my USB..
~ BUT, when I do `sudo lsusb`.. I have results as follow..

Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 002: ID 045e:0736 Microsoft Corp.
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 058f:1234 Alcor Micro Corp. Flash Drive
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

The entry with Microsoft Corp. name is my Microsoft SideWinder mouse and second last I assume is my USB, as I have no other active USB connections.

SUSE :: How To Format And Mount A 2nd Drive

Jul 28, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2 installed on my PC, the install went well and was quite pleased with the OS. Howeve, because I only had a small 40Gb hard-drive I decided to buy a new Western Digital Green 1Tb SATA drive for storing my music etc.Now this is where I have run into difficulty. I can't get the OS to see the new drive, I did a search and found some instructions on how to format, mount, setup the 2nd drive but I either missed something or I just didn't do it correctly.In the end I could see the drive under Nautilus and that was it.

I can't write to it because it says I don't have permission? I can't seem to make new directories, most likely because I don't have permission. If needs be I will be willing to go back to the beginning and start installing the drive again. I don't mean to beliitle the Linux OS and users but using Windows$ all my life (I'm 49) I find it a lot easier, but I am willing to learn this new OS (for me that is).

Ubuntu :: HPFS/NTFS Won't Mount

Oct 20, 2010

Recently installed ubuntu 10.10 and rather like it but been trying to setup and configure everything so its a feasible alternate OS.

I have a problem where one of my hard drives doesnt show up in places.

The drive works fine in windows.

The information provided to me by Disk Utility says:

Model: ATA WDC WD 10EADS-00L5B1
Partitioning: Master Boot Record
Device: /dev/sdb
Partition Type: HPFS/NTFS (0x07)

Now i have a total of 4 drives, windows 7 on one, linux on one, and 2 storage. Linux recognizes my main windows drive and my 2 TB storage drive, but not this one for some reason. I assume it has to do with the partition type? Disk utility just shows its parition bar image as 'unknown' so yeah. Now there is one error during boot related to this but i can't read it fast enough to remember it all, all i see is the sdb label real quick.
