file sharing between windows and linux, specifically Mandriva 2010.2


Hello All,

I've been running Mandriva 2010.2 for about 1-1/2 yrs on a dell lattitude D610 and decided to make my main pc a dual boot, I did this during the Christmas/New Years week. All is fine and stable, now I'd like to be able to share documents between platforms (on the same/other) pc(s). I've already set the folders in windows to share, All other pcs on my network are win xp, but is there anything else needed for other win OS's. I don't see an option on my Mandriva pcs to share. All assistance is welcome. Thank you all in advance.

Sincerely.

Bill

From Mandriva you should be able to mount your Windows XP drives, as long as they are not encrypted.

You just need to find out which partition/drive hosts your windows XP install. You can use fdisk -l to do this.

I think you can a get driver to see ext2/3 partitions in windows, look for it in google.

In order to share documents from Mandriva you need to set up Samba.

file shariing between windows and Mandriva linux

Thanks,

I need a bit of clarifing, are you saying that I need to point to the boot partition of the windows install? I've setup the samba sharing but still can't see anything in the windows partition. To be clear. windows and linux are on the same box, but only one is running at a time. How exactly woould I mount the windows install?

Thanks,

Bill

file sharing between windows and Mandriva

I just checked and the windows OS is mounted, I use multiple hdds in my system and have set shares on the drive letters in windows for the drives (partitions) I want to access in Mandriva. Although the OS partition is mounted I can't access the other drives, they do show up in the tree but the only options from right clicking are: ADD Entry, and Hide entry. If I add entry I still can't see the contents, although if I double click on the OS drive all the contents are available for viewing. Obviously I'm missing something. Thanks again for assisting.

Sincerely,

Bill

file sharing between windows and Mandriva

I just noticed an error when I tried to access any of the other drives I shared in windows. Here's the error message:

An Error occurred while accessing 'Application' ,the system responded: org.freedesktop.HAL.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy: org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed auth_admin_keep_always <--(action, result)

Where 'Application' is one of the drive names that were shared. Again thanks for assisting.

Sincerely,

Bill

Could you post the output of the following commands please?
Code:
fdisk -l
Code:
mount

Also, have a look at this https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...r_normal_users
