Problems mounting NTFS external harddrive


Hi,

I'm having problems mounting my NTFS external hard drive, just default kinda settings, installed ntfs-3g

Did

# groupadd storage
# chgrp storage /media/disk
# chmod 775 /media/disk
# gpasswd -a user_name storage

A copy of /var/log/messages re: this problem is below:

in fedora SELinux will stop any mount directly to / , and sudo is disabled by default - use " su -" or " su "
-- this will not work --
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sd?? /mnt
-- this WILL work --
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sd?? /mnt/usb_drive
if the folder "usb_drive" has been made in /mnt first

--------------------------
fedora should auto mount a ntfs drive at boot ( with r/w) and there should be no need try and set that

with the usb drive plugged in reboot and look at /etc/mtab
the auto mount options being used will be there

i tend to mount every drive using /etc/fstab in fedora .That way i can get ,and KEEP ,it's icon OFF MY DESKTOP

Ok here's an output that I got from trying, it seems it doesn't even "recognise" the sdb hard drive all the time before I even try to mount it (see my fdisk -l) - it only recognises it sometimes, keeps unmounting at a system level. This is with the automount in GNOME disabled - through gconf editor.

Then I get the nasty NTFS error "use windows" option, which doesn't make any sense.

NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.
[root@zenith relay]# mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ntfs
ntfs-3g: Failed to access volume '/dev/sdb1': No such file or directory
Please type '/sbin/mount.ntfs-3g --help' for more information.
[root@zenith relay]# mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ntfs
ntfs-3g: Failed to access volume '/dev/sdb1': No such file or directory
The red highlighted text tells you what you need to do before mounting with that command.
If you cannot check the disk in Windows, you can try mounting it by force with command:
Code:
mount -t ntfs-3g -f /dev/sdb1 /mnt/ntfs

That's what I thought at first as well, so I tested that theory now and I put it in as internal drive......... and it works fine.

It hasn't made an entry into /etc/fstab so not sure how it's being mounted, but I've got a feeling that's not the problem...... it's an access issue before you even get to mount it

So now I'm thinking it must be with the USB ports, maybe SELinux is denying access (I've checked the SELinux troubleshooter, but no errors of that nature - unless it's mmap (all SELinux issues I've listed below)


Summary
SELinux is preventing polkit-read-aut (polkit_auth_t) "write" to /var/log/gdm/:0-greeter.log (xserver_log_t). Detailed DescriptionSELinux denied access requested by polkit-read-aut. It is not expected that this access is required by polkit-read-aut and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is causing it to require additional access.

Summary
SELinux is preventing ld-linux-x86-64 (prelink_t) "mmap_zero" to <Unknown> (prelink_t). Detailed DescriptionSELinux denied access requested by ld-linux-x86-64. The current boolean settings do not allow this access. If you have not setup ld-linux-x86-64 to require this access this may signal an intrusion attempt. If you do intend this access you need to change the booleans on this system to allow the access.

Summary
SELinux prevented kde4-config from writing ./.kde. Detailed DescriptionSELinux prevented kde4-config from writing ./.kde. If ./.kde is a core file, you may want to allow this. If ./.kde is not a core file, this could signal a intrusion attempt.

Summary
SELinux is preventing NetworkManager (NetworkManager_t) "execute" to ./udevadm (udev_exec_t). Detailed DescriptionSELinux denied access requested by NetworkManager. It is not expected that this access is required by NetworkManager and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is causing it to require additional access.

Not sure about Fedora, but Ubuntu don't let a user mount external drives until the administrator let's em.
