mount problems with second hard disk in SuSe 9.3


I'm having difficulty finding out exactly how to mount the second hard disk on my SuSE 9.3 setup. I disconnected said disk before installing SuSE because of problems I'd had with it trying to boot from the wrong disk during a previous attempt at installation. I then reconnected the disk and booted up but, although the system knows that it's there, it won't automatically mount it. It doesn't appear in the Konqueror browser at all. The YaST partition tool sees the disk, but, unlike the main boot disk, does not see any of the partitions on it (I previously had SuSE 8.2, so there should be two Linux partions - one for the swap - and a Windows partition).

XP has no problems accessing the Windows partition on the second disk at all.

I can find no obvious way of mounting the disk in YaST and, although I'm aware that you can use the 'mount' command from the shell, this has no effect unless you alter the etc/fstab file in some way.

I would be grateful if anyone could help - I'm sure there is a simple solution but I just don't know what it is - the manuals do not give detailed instructions.

What I would like to know is:

(preferably) How can I mount this disk from the GUI (KDE/YaST) and make it permanent *or*

if I have to alter the fstab file, what exactly do I put in there?

I've included some information below from the etc/fstab file and from the YaST hardware probe...

OK, I don't know anything about YaST or SUSE, so this is all going to be common command line tools.

Login as root, and use the command "fdisk /dev/hdc". Once it loads, you should be able to hit 'p' (then enter) and that will display the partition table. Make sure your partitions are the way you expect them to be. Here's an example:
Code:
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1               1          31      248976   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/hda2   *          32         529     4000185   83  Linux
/dev/hda3             530        1582     8458222+  7  HPFS/NTFS
This would show that hda2 was my linux partition and hda3 was my windows partition. Use 'q' to quit fdisk, then add what you need to /etc/fstab. Edit the file and add something like this for the linux partition:
Code:
/dev/hda2         /mnt/oldsuse                    ext2  defaults  0  0
obviously, change hda2 to the partition you got from fdisk, and /mnt/oldsuse should be a directory that exists for your old drive to be mounted under. Also, ext2 should be whatever the filesystem was - check 'man mount' and 'man fstab' for more information on the available options.

1. check your
$fdisk -l
if its showing the disk.....
2. check if the filesystem on that disk is supported by ur present kernel..do a
cat /proc/filesystems to get the supported filesystems
3. if that fs is not in the list...u have to recompile the kernel with that fs on....
4. But looks like its on SCSI bus..did u enable SCSI in kernel options?
4a. Or is it USB external drive? then u have to enable USB mass storage

I don't think his drive is SCSI, the output says there is a Maxtor drive as /dev/hdc. His primary drive is /dev/sda, which I presume is a SATA drive, while his old one is a plain ATA.

nevertheless "fdisk -l" would solve the mystery

Wow! You guys work fast - I didn't expect a reply so quickly.

You're right about the hard disks - the primary is a new SATA device and the old one is an ordinary ATA IDE one. They are both Maxtor brand. At the moment, I'm unsure as to what's on the Linux partitions on the old drive because of the fact that SuSE 9.3 tried to boot from it part way through the previous (abortive) installation - so it may have replaced the old filing system from 8.2 with a new one (reiserfs, perhaps). So I'll use your advice and try to find out.

Many thanks for the information.

I have tried what CroMagnon kindly suggested and managed to get some useful information from the fdisk output:

Disk /dev/hdc: 30.7 GB, 30750031872 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3738 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdc1 1 2248 18057028+ c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hdc2 2249 2310 498015 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/hdc3 * 2311 3738 11470410 83 Linux

I then put the following lines at the end of the fstab file:

/dev/hdc3 /mnt/oldSuSE reiserfs defaults 0 0
/dev/hdc2 /mnt/oldswap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdc1 /windows/E vfat defaults 0 0

When I then tried 'mount /dev/hdc1' I got the message: '/dev/hdc1 is not a valid block device'. I tried the same with hdc3 and hdc2 with the same result. Changing the 'reiserfs' entry to 'ext2' did not help either.

So next I decided to 'delete' the Linux partitions on the old drive in order to simplify things (there was nothing important on there). I didn't know how to do this from KDE/SuSE, so I used XP. Sure enough fdisk then reported:

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdc1 1 2248 18057028+ c W95 FAT32 (LBA)

same as before, but without the other partitions.

Then I tried 'mount /dev/hdc1' again but got exactly the same error message.

I have also put the same fstab lines into the mtab file, again with no effect. Fstab now reads:

/dev/sda3 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/sda1 /windows/C ntfs ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
/dev/sda2 swap swap pri=42 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/dvdram /media/dvdram subfs noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy subfs noauto,fs=floppyfss,procuid,nodev,nosuid,sync 0 0
/dev/hdc1 /windows/E vfat defaults 0 0


I'm not sure what to try next!

for the oldsuse partition..dont mention ext2 or reiserfs....let the kernel autodetect the fs
/dev/hdc3 /mnt/oldsuse auto auto,user 0 0

now the kernel tweaks: these are the checks i would hav added
is automount enabled in kernel?
is loop back devices enabled? (not valid block devide prompts me to ask this)
r u sure the FAT32 fs is clean without any bad sectors? (run scandisk in dos/windows or fsck.vfat fsck.msdos in linux)
since u dont need booting from oldsuse...get a parittion software (ranish partition manager is free one)...& check the MBR on the second disk.... (if u play MBR On 1st disk..u might not boot to grub or lilo )

OK, the MBR is not your problem, so don't mess with that. Proof: disk works under windows, and fdisk doesn't complain. automount is irrelevant, and so is loopback support (if loopback was required for filesystems, it wouldn't be an option in the kernel in the first place).

The first thing to check would be mayhemt's earlier suggestion of checking /proc/filesystems - make sure both 'vfat' and 'msdos' are in the list. If you compiled these as modules (or if SUSE did that - check under the directory in /lib/modules that matches your kernel version), make sure the relevant modules appear in an 'lsmod'. e.g if your kernel is 2.4.2, the right directory would be /lib/modules/2.4.2/kernel/fs

If that checks out ok, perhaps post the result of 'ls -l /dev/hdc1'. It should look like this:
Code:
brw-rw----  1 root disk 22, 1 May 21  2004 /dev/hdc1
I doubt this could be damaged, but it's always possible.

Also, check the output of 'dmesg' for any errors that might give us a clue about the problem.

Thanks very much for the advice so far, folks.

I have found a directory called:

lib/modules/2.6.11.4-20a-default/kernel/fs

and in there are directories called 'msdos', 'vfat' and 'ntfs' among many others. Each of these directories has a corresponding '.ko' file inside (eg. 'msdos.ko').

However, if you look at the contents of 'proc/filesystems', there is no entry for msdos...

nodev sysfs
nodev rootfs
nodev bdev
nodev proc
nodev sockfs
nodev debugfs
nodev pipefs
nodev futexfs
nodev tmpfs
nodev eventpollfs
nodev devpts
ext2
nodev ramfs
nodev hugetlbfs
minix
iso9660
nodev nfs
nodev nfs4
nodev mqueue
nodev rpc_pipefs
reiserfs
nodev usbfs
ntfs
vfat
nodev subfs

seeing as the filesystem on the old drive is FAT32 (vfat?), rather than old DOS, does this matter? To change this file, is it simply a question of editing and putting in a line for msdos, or is 'filesystems' an output from another program? Even if I did this though, it wouldn't really explain why I couldn't access the Linux partitions on the old drive.

Anyway, here are the outputs from ls and dmesg...

Even though vfat may seem like a new filesystem, it is really just an extension on the old fat system. Unless things have changed in recent kernels, msdos is required for vfat to work (it's always possible things have changed on me). Try 'insmod msdos' and then re-cat /proc/filesystems to see if msdos shows up.

Another worry is the abundance of errors on /dev/hdc like this:
ide: failed opcode was: unknown
hdc: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hdc: dma_intr: error=0x84 { DriveStatusError BadCRC }

Normally these kinds of errors pop up on drives that are failing. You could try switching the drive to the primary IDE controller, in case the error is in the connection rather than the drive itself (this would make the device /dev/hda instead of hdc).

If the above fails to get things working, I'd advise you to boot up the Windows system and save as much important data from that drive as you can, because it might not be long before it gives up completely

success!

Thanks again for your contributions.

I have swapped the cables around on the motherboard and SuSE now recognises the old drive! I can now mount it with 'mount' and 'fstab'. One problem though - I had a look at the 'dmesg' output again and this time, similar error messages crop up for the optical drives, which use the same cable as before but are now plugged into the secondary connector. So I suppose this must be a problem with the motherboard socket. Having said that, both the optical drives do mount up normally and can be used by the filing system.

Perhaps we can now put this to bed as a hardware problem then? I must say though that I don't really fancy having to send the motherboard back and wait for a new one!

Sound advice chaps, well done.

PS. I've just installed SuSE 9.2 on the spare partition on the old drive - it has no problems mounting any of the storage devices and gives no error messages for the optical drives, so maybe it was a 9.3 bug after all. I know 9.3 uses a later kernel. Curious!

Do you have any errors in the XP event log? I don't know what 'hardware probe' is, but XP is really good at 'painting over' some hardware problems.

It's possible the IDE cable was just not seated properly at one end or the other, or that there is a problem with the secondary controller that doesn't manifest itself when dealing with lower size drives (like a CD or DVD drive). It's also possible (but I think unlikely) that the kernel on the newer system doesn't include a required patch for your IDE chipset. You could try grabbing the kernel source and compiling your own to see if you can track it down to a software fault.
