OpenSuse Install failed to pickup SDB


Hi, can anyone solve this Prob?

I have added OpenSuse to my SDA, SDA3, along with Ubuntu,SDA1, but OpenSuse hasn't picked up my SDB "slave". What's my next move?

Thanks.

What do you mean by not picked up ?
Not in boot sequence ?
What type of drives do you use use ?
Not picking up drives is not common for suse.
Please gives us some more information.


all the best

Thanks for your interest. I mean there's is no icon for this harddrive in My Computer. Pen drives showup.

I tried :


nnjond@linux-wjsi:~> sudo fdisk-l
root's password:
sudo: fdisk-l: command not found
nnjond@linux-wjsi:~>

No you will not find a icon on you,re desktop.
Try yast2>hardware>hardware information .
OR yast2>system >partitioner as long as do not change any thing no harm done.
I am not sure but it might be possible that also find it in fstab

all the best

Yast2 reveals it (SDB) under Disk. Thanks

I would like to read and write to it, as I can in Ubuntu?

I have never write to my other disk , because I like to separate the OS on each disk totally .
But I it might be possible if you mount it in FSTAB

Yes. In the past, I have had Win 2k + Ubuntu on SDA which could both access data on SDB.

Please tell me the "FSTAB" procedure.

If a file system is not mounted only root can mount it , Linux file system can be on different drives.
IF you ask for a console and type man mount you will find out how to mount it
Afterwards try to read or write on that file system.
Finally put the commnand in FSTAB




all the best
