Ubuntu Installation :: Mount NTFS File System In Wine?
May 4, 2010
Trying to mount my NTFS file system (portable hard drive) so that is can be recognized by a program I have installed in wine (seagate manager). I've tried to change the mount point for the drive to /home/.wine/c_drive but that doesn't seem to do the trick, and messing around with the fstab file just results in error messages when I try to mount/unmount the drive.
who to change the mount point properly? /dev/sbd1 is my partition.
Either that or does anyone know how to configure wine so that it will find my drive? I've tried adding an e: drive to the drives tab and mapped it to mediaSimons' Seagate (partition label), but that doesn't seem to do the trick either.
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,

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?
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 was follooing this instructions to repair windows system32 in this tutorial found in a previus tread, my laptop is Dell xps 2010 I had Ubuntu Live cd running with Internet,mouse and keyboard, The NTFS and NTFSProgs exist in System/ administration /synatip Package Manager,but i can mount the filesystem properly due the device name etc,thing i missing some code in terminal application.Partition table entries are not in disk order.Regard the repair of windows media center edition (windows system32 corrupted...).
I am pondering a reinstall of a freshly installed Ubuntu; I may or may not take that drastic step.However, I have partitioned my drive to include a 16-GB partition labelled "Ubuntu-tmp", in my case /dev/sda7, with the intent of mounting that file system as /tmp. Depending on how I decide to go about the reinstall I need an answer to these questions:If I reinstall: Is it possible to designate /dev/sda7 to mount as /tmp during the installation process?If I cannot designate the mounts at install time, or if I opt not to reinstall: I can't really empty the /tmp directory in the root in order to properly use it as a mount point for [the file system on] /dev/sda7; many files in there are still in use by running processes. So how can I clear the /-mounted /tmp directory and assign it to /dev/sda7?
I have attached a screen shot of gparted to illustrate my layout scheme.The gparted manual suggests I select the partition, click [Partition]->[Mount]. Of course, my gparted drops a menu with [Mount] is absent and an [Unmount] option is greyed out.This raises a question of how I am going to mount /users and /var in their intended file systems (/dev/sda8 and /dev/sda9, respectively), because the [partition] menu looks the same for these partitions as well.
It is gnome 3, debian jessie, nautilus file manager. Click ntfs partition from file manager, type password got error:
Code: Select allUnable to access â€śalldisksda5â€ť Error mounting /dev/sda5 at /media/user1/alldisksda5: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sda5" "/media/user1/alldisksda5"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0). Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount. Failed to mount '/dev/sda5': Operation not permitted The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option.
Why is this error? Windows has been shutdown normally. What to do?
I grabbed the new lubuntu 10.10 from [URL] but it turns out I'm having a problem installing it on my netbook (Asus Eee PC 1015PED). While installing, this error pops up:
The attempt to mount a file system with type ext4 in SCSI2 (0,0,0), partition #1 (sda) at / failed.You may resume partitioning from the partitioning menu.I'm installing via USB and have selected the option to erase everything and use the full HDD.
A drive on my Linux machine is NTFS as the file system. There's a file corruption issue of some kind for copying files from the drive to another or another PC result in I/O errors. Overall, I work with 2 systems, one Windoze, the other Linux. I'm about to switch the roles of the 2 machines. The one with the corrupted ntfs partition is about to become my Windows machine and the Windows machine is going to become Linux.
Since I will be installing Windows on the machine with the problematic ntfs partition, I'm figuring at some point, Windoze chdsk will kick in and fix the drive. (Windows will be installed to another drive that is perfect right now.)
Is this a correct assumption? Or, do I do everything I possibly can to fix the corrupt partition prior to the new Windows install? If this is true, what are my options for fixing corrupted files under Ubuntu? Research I've done hasn't yielded much in results and a definitive answer for fixing corrupt files in Linux.
Got Samba on fedora 13. Windows machines backup their files to the linux shared folder. I want to attach an external hard disk (USB) to the linux machine in order to backup those files. Can the external hard drive be NTFS or do I need to reformat it as Linux file system (ext3)?
I have updated my linux version 5.2 yo 5.3 after that I wanted to mount my windows drives. I installed this rpm kernel-module-ntfs-2.6.18-92.el5-2.1.27-0.rr.10.11.i686.rpm (99KB) its not working while um giving this command #mount -t ntfs /dev/sda5 /mnt shows a error unknown file system NTFS. bt it worked in 5.2.
can assign permissions on a partition with ntfs as the file system. I am aware of editing fstab and setting some basic permissions. What I am clumsily dictating is can you edit permissions of individual folders for specific users in Linux. I have already tried chmod and such
I have a videos server here at work running Mandriva 2009 Spring and I need to copy a 10 gig file from it to a USB drive. The drive needs to be readable and writable from Windows. The file size rules out FAT, and when I try to write to it when formatted as NTFS I get an error about it being a read-only file system. How can I get NTFS support up and running?
Someone on IRC had mentioned they had a shared partition in NTFS, and that Ubuntu could read from it just fine... I wanted to get a second opinion before I did anything. Right now I have a WinXP partition and an Ubuntu partition, and a large NTFS partition in the middle that I'd like to move my /home to.
