Your Distro? Desktop? The exact programs and commands used?

"X doesn't work" does not give us enough information to diagnose the problem. Please read the big, bolded link directly below this sentence and try again.

Actually i have a desktop of the configuration : Intel Cerelon D processor;RAM:256 MB;80 GB HDD;DVD/CDRW;

I am new to linux,I have recently installed Mandriva 2008 on my machine on a separate 10 GB partion;the remaining partitions are of type NTFS where i have a lot of data.

From the start i was only being able to read data form the partitions of NTFS type but not being able to write to them, this was my first problem.

But suddenly a error started coming which says : "File or Folder /mnt/win_c does not exist" when i am trying to open my Drive C using konqueror. this is happening for all the NTFS partions.

But when i can view all my file within win_c from the terminal using ls.

please help me with this problem.
thanking you in advance.
JeetNayan.

Ok, that's better. Now we know where you're standing. But I'm not experienced on Mandriva, so I can only give some general advice.

First of all, the error message says "File or Folder /mnt/win_c does not exist". So did you confirm that the folder /mnt/win_c exists? If not, try creating it first.

To get full NTFS write support you need to use the ntfs-3g driver, as the basic driver is only safe for read support. Here's a tutorial for setting it up in Mandriva. It's a couple of years old, but it's probably still mostly applicable. There's always google if you need more info.

If you can access /mnt/win_c from the terminal the only sensible reason why you can't in the GUI maybe due to some permission issues. Can you post the output of these commands?

Quote:
# ls -l /mnt
# mount
# cat /etc/fstab
Mandriva 2008 is getting pretty dated(release in Oct 2007), write support for ntfs(ntfs-3g) was introduced in 2008.1. The current version is 2010. You should definitely think about upgrading.

Thanks i got the problem solved... it due to some permission issues.However i installed the ntfs-3g driver from the Mandriva DVD and did a fair amount of changes in the options for mounting the NTFS partitions in Linux control center then it worked... i was using KDE environment.
for more help i reffered this link : http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Releases...a/2008.0/Notes

Thanks for the support,
JN
