How to used created partition in ubuntu


Hi All,

Im a new user of Linux, for my present activity, I was able to create a new partition in my terminal using fdisk.

So basically this is just an additional partition in my currently installed linux (ubuntu). Now my problem is, how can I use that partition or how can I save files or install applications on it?

I tried creating a File system mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1, and I also mounted it,
but when I copy files on the directory where I mounted it, it says "Permission Denied". I dont know if Im doing it correctly though.


Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Permission denied!! You created the partition as root, you created the filesystem as root, did you change the permissions to allow users? Or do you have this problem as root user? Check the permissions by running ls -l command on whatever directory it is mounted on.

Hi yancek,

Thanks for the advice, I changed the permission of the directory and it worked. I was able to copy files on it.

Thank you very much
