What's going on here and how do I fix it?


I was reading on a linux site about mount points, and remembering the current condition of my drives being "unknown" and "The Permissions of "/" could not be determined" being on the permissions tab of my Filesystem directory, I ran "cat /var/log/fsck/checkfs" to find out what I'd get. The following is the result:

lin@name:~$ cat /var/log/fsck/checkfs
Log of fsck -C3 -R -A -a
Mon Oct 20 07:06:08 2008

fsck 1.40.8 (13-Mar-2008)

Mon Oct 20 07:06:08 2008

I ran it twice, same thing.

I also ran sudo fdisk -l

and the result was:

lin@name:~$ sudo fdisk -l

I have currently six drives, counting the usb and the dvd drive, just what is going on here, and how do I repair it?

I'd like for my drives to be known? I also would like the permissions of "/" to be able to be determined? These seem like things that my drives would normally be able to do, but for some reason can't...

Does everything look okay? I hope I'm worried needlessly...

There's nothing to worry about. It's just that the file-manager you're using isn't able to display the information properly for some reason. Most likely a bug that'll get fixed in a version or two's time.
