I've just installed (or tried to) Kubuntu 5.10, downloaded off their site, onto a new machine (X86-64).
I've changed distros from Mandriva, so i wanted it to just mount my old home directory as my new one. But it will only mount it as read-only, so I can't get KDE up. If i try
it still won't read the partition. I have got KDE up logged in as root once, but I don't remember how, and can't seem to manage it again.
My fstab looks like this:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sda1 / ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sda6 /home ext3 defaults,rw 0 2
/dev/hda1 /media/windows ntfs defaults 0 0
/dev/sda5 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/hdd /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdc /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
I put the 'rw' on the /dev/sda6 line, but it didn't make much difference.
FYI, there is one HDD with Windows on it, and another split into three partitions (/, swap, /home).
Any ideas on how to get KDE up?
