Unhappy I cant access my other XP drive in openSUSE 11.0, I tries mount but it doesn't work


Hi guys this is my first post ,

I have a problem.
I have a dual boot pc with windows XP Professional and openSUSE 11.0.
When I try to access my files from XP I can't for some reason I don't know. I did what was told in <link> http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-drive-294992/ </link> but when I do that I can't access my edrive anymore.

And here's what I get when I do fdisk -l in su mode:

Disk /dev/hdc: 122.9 GB, 122942324736 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14946 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x052598ff

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdc1 1 10199 81923436 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hdc2 * 10200 14946 38130277+ 83 Linux


Im trying to access /dev/hdc1 but I can't.


thx in advance

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

What is shown when you issue the 'mount' command from the cli?

proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
debugfs on /sys/kernel/debug type debugfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,mode=0620,gid=5)
securityfs on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)
fusectl on /sys/fs/fuse/connections type fusectl (rw)

Looks like the '/dev/hdc1' is mounted with the type ntfs. Is that your XP drive?

Oh yeah I forgot this.


When I try /dev/hdc1 /mnt/edrive vfat defaults 0 0 in su mode it says:

bash: /dev/hdc1: Permission denied

The "/dev/hdc1 /mnt/edrive vfat defaults 0 0" part is the format for /etc/fstab. It describes various parameters for mounting of the drives - it is NOT a command. The name of the command is mount.

So, to mount manually you'll have to run this command:

Code:
sudo mount /dev/hdc1 /mnt/edrive
This is assuming /dev/hdc1 is already not mounted on /mnt/edrive (you can check that by simply running "mount" without any arguments).

Since that is the output of the 'mount' command then you already have the filesystem available.
