Hard disk disappeared in system:/media.


Hi all, I have a little problem with the distro.
I would try to mount an NTFS partition with ntff-3g and the folder where I mounted it if fully browsable, but in system:/media the partition is not shown. An other NTFS partion, mounted with the standard read only driver is.
I see that if I set this:
Code:
/dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d ntfs-3g user,auto,exec,rw,umask=0 0 0
in fstab, I get this:

Code:
/dev/fuse /mnt/win_d fuse rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,default_permissions,allow_other 0 0
in mtab.
How to have the partition in system:/media again?

(sorry for my english)

I think if the code bit is the command line command then your full command is
mount /dev/hda5 /mnt/win_d ntfs-3g user,auto,exec,rw,umask=0 0 0 is this right ?
If it is so then you are telling it to mount /dev/hda5 at the directory /mnt/win_d

If you want it at /media change it to that.

....... How?

P.s. the line in the code box is a quote of my /etc/fstab and /etc/mtab

[QUOTE=sloteel]....... How?

Try this,

mount /dev/hda5 /media/win-? then your options as needed.

Good luck with it all.

But there isn't a /media folder. I've always used /mnt.
the problem is not to have the filsystem in /media, but to see it in konqueror's system:/media.

Please bear with me. your ntfs disk is mounted at /mnt/?? You want it visible in your browser (konqueror) in your home directory?
If so? Then right click in your browser main window, select "create new", "link to device", "hard disk device", click and drill down to /mnt/hdd5. select it, click Okay. you should see a new icon in your home directory, with a little green triangle, double click that.

Hope this helps.

Shorty.

No, I don't want it in my home. I want it in the metafolder "system:/media", the one you reach clicking "storage media", because all the others are there. I browsed the web and I found many others with the same problems, often with not linux-native filesystems. I think that my konqueror can't handle the mtab line
Code:
/dev/fuse /mnt/win_d fuse rw,nosuid,nodev,noatime,default_permissions,allow_other 0 0
but it seems like noone knows how to fix it.

Sorry sloteel, I still use 2006, no such directory as system /media in my install. Must be some thing new in 2007. I do have a Win32 disk in my Linux server, at /mnt/win, which I share over my LAN using Samba. Also use a symbolic link, in my /home/dir, to access that hdd via Konqueror. Sorry I can't be of any more help than this (little to none) at the moment. But what you seem to need is beyond my knowledge of the system.

Good luck, Shorty.

Sloteel, if you are still following this post.
After looking a little closer at my standard install, I have found a desktop shortcut, never bothered to click before.
In my 2006, this is named "devices", and appears to be similar to your metafolder named "media". My, fat32 windisk, and other removable media links, are in this metafolder.
As support for ntfs has been chancy at best under Linux, until now, this may be some of the problem. This was the very reason I chose to format my Windows volume in my server as fat32, rather than ntfs.
This volume was present in the system at install time and mounted at /mnt/win.
There is now far better ntfs support with ntfs-3g, I believe. I will wrangle with all this myself in the near future.

Once again, I am sorry I could not be of more help.

Shorty943.

Well media is just a folder set up on install
As root "mkdir /media"
"mount whatever"
in your directory listing it will appear under /media/
Try addressing it in a konqueror window as "system:/media and see what happens -I don't know how that is made to work if it does not straight off

system:/media
I have a very bad experience with this in 2007,
especially above level 3 security. I have still not understood
how this works (read how the mounting gets disabled at higher
security level), despite granting usage of mount to any user with visudo (but it is irrelevant).

Quote:
system:/media the partition is not shown
Try a low security level as 2 and see if system:/media
has properly mounted devices then.

Sloteel, please reply.
Is the "storage media" icon you click, on your desktop?
Does it bring up a Konqueror window, with icon\links to removable storage devices?
If this is so, then try to make a new link, by right clicking in that window, and create new link to device. You may need to "su" to root to give appropriate read write permissions.

Good luck

Shorty943.
