newly added harddrive not showing....


Hello!
Using the mandrake command centre, I added a new hard drive to my system. After rebooting, the fstab looked like this:

dev/hda5 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda6 /home ext2 defaults 1 2
none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdc,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=auto,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb5 /tmp ext3 user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,noauto,exec,kudzu 0 0
/dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0

However, the output from the command 'df -h' is:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5 4.9G 2.6G 2.1G 57% /
/dev/hda6 9.6G 4.0G 5.6G 42% /home

Why isn't /dev/hdb5 showing? I can access the files that Mandrake moved when it (apparently) shifted the /tmp directory resting in the /tmp directory, but I want to make sure!

regards,
doug

Well because you've got it set to not automount (noauto). It's not mounted because you/mandrake made it that way Either change the noauto to auto, or simply mount up the drive with:
mount /tmp

Cool

Hello!
I altered the fstab to read:

dev/hda5 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/hda6 /home ext2 defaults 1 2
none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdc,fs=auto,ro,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=auto,--,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850,umask=0 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb5 /tmp ext3 user,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850,auto,exec,kudzu 1 0
/dev/hda2 swap swap defaults 0 0

And still the partition isn't showing in 'df -h'. Could the problem be something to do with one of the last two columns? I tried using the setting for the /home partition (ie '1 2' but the system wouldn't reboot (superblock error...)

with thanks,
doug

Try mounting it regular to make sure it can be mounted. Then, change the lines to 1 1 (or 0 0 if 1 1 doesn't work) and try again.

Cool

Hello!
the output from the command 'mount /dev/hdb5' is

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hdb5,
or too many mounted file systems

What can I infer from this? That something might be wrong with the disc? (It would really suck if Iend up having to add a windows dual boot OS, just to see if the disk is mountable in windows.)

regards,
doug
