SuSE 8 Mounting of NTFS XP Partition is not cutting it.
Hello all, once again I've got mount problems and this time it's in SuSe. I tried out Suse, because everyone was telling it has NTFS support of the bat. Some said it was Suse and Mandrake. Well I tried Mandrake and NTFS was there. Now that I've installed Suse, it sees the partiton, but when I try to mount it in kwikdisk, it gives me this error:
D:\drive NTFS XP partition.
Called: mount -tntfs /dev/hde5 /windows/D -o ro,noauto,user,umask=000
mount: mount point /windows/D does not exist
and this for C:\drive
Called: mount -tntfs /dev/hde1 /windows/C -o ro,noauto,user,umask=022
mount: mount point /windows/C does not exist.
I checked in my fstab file and the lines were apparent if they weren't they wouldn't be showing in Kwikdisk. Anyways I tried to console the command and this is what I get
linux:~ # mount -t ntfs /dev/hda5 /mnt
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/hda5,
or too many mounted file systems
(could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
The lines in fstab were automatically generated by suse,
but check this out, when I console this in
nt -t ntfs /dev/hde5 /mnt
then it works, what am I missing here?
I'm sure it has somthing to do with fstab, but I don't understand it if SuSe generates the line itself. Anyways I re-edited the line to this:
/dev/hda5 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,noauto,user 0 0
and it still didn't work. keep in mind that I also created a windows dir just for testing purposes. This is so wierd, I had it working fine in RH7.3 after I had made a moudle for NTFS support, but now it's in Suse, I'm sure this is not distro related. Just a minor error somewhere.
Anyone have ideas?
