Dear MTK358,
I guess they want to check your Windows(OS) are legitimate or not, don't you think so?


Dear mdlinuxwolf,
Thanks for your advice!

Question Read and write to and from win-ntfs?

Hi! Leopard,
I mean "Legitimate dis-Advantage".( )

Btw:
On "SUSE-10.2", I could not write into mounted win-ntfs though I could read out from it.
I found that on "Knoppix-6.2", I could read and write to and from win-ntfs. Does anyone
know if there is something I can do to get "SUSE-10.2" to be able to do the same?


Thanks,---godoten( )

Edited in after:
I was talking to do so with "mc". I just thought it may be something to do with the
setting for the "mc" I am using, do you think? I should have check it before I asked
the question? I'm going to do so now if I can find out by myself. `man mc` <--'( )

NTFS & SuSE

You have to download additional packages to write NTFS and switch the option on. Go to YaST and under the package search, just type in NTFS. If something like NFTS-3g or a similar option appears install it.

Depending on your security, you may have to be root to write to NTFS. See if you file manager can be run as superuser mode. It might already work.

Thumbs up I'm looking into `man ntfsprogs` now.

Thank you mdlinuxwolf,

I've done following your instruction "YaST" with SUSE-10.2-DVD and installed "NTFSprogs".
I'm looking into `man ntfsprogs` now. This program seems to do lots more than just read &
write into & from NTFS. Suddenly, I am getting used to man page in these few days. I hardly
can believe it. ( ......??..?...) If I want to use "mc" to do it I have to try the version
of "mc" which does do it, I guess?

I say "I have stacked with SUSE-10.2" but it does not mean I am unhappy about it. I found
this system "rock steady state of art". I like the "konsole" on this one knowing they have made
it meaner lately. I love making my own scheme for this "konsole". But one problem there is for
me is that if I install "firefox-3.6.3" it's "preferences" popup window shows up "blank!" and can
not configure anything. I guess some up-to-date lib-files & dependencies needed but I don't
know what. I use old firefox and get told "your version is out dated and not supported "
at youtube.com.( )

There is a front end for NTFS

Try typing NTFS gui or front end NTFS or something like that. I think that it'll save you from having to use a konsole all of the time just to read a file system. I have fedora 14 together with Vista and I have a front end for NTFS. SuSE may well have the same thing. Only YaST knows for sure !!

I think its called ntfs-config. You need root's password to install it and you need root's password to use it.

Thumbs up Thank you for your advice anyway.

( )Thank you mdlinuxwolf,

I tried "ntfs gui" and "ntfs front end" on my "YaST2" with SUSE-10.2-DVD, but response
was "No Results" in both cases. SUSE-10.2 seems to be not equipped with it. Thank you
for your advice anyway. I needed the ability to write onto NTFS from Linux for one off
task to save the pre-installed Vista on a Laptop's HDD to larger HDD which is to replace it
without having the Vista's installation disk. To my surprize, I could do it rather easily, while
"mc" of Knoppix could write onto NTFS, with a little help of the repare function of "Vista
Recovery Disk" that I could down load from Internet. If someone wanted to know how
I did it I would explain but you who play with Linux already know it?

Talking A novice's little discovery.

Dear Friends,

This Knoppix says "initiated startup sequence" when X-window start, I looked at
/etc/X11/xsession.d and, my guess was right, found "a bit" of bash-script responsible
for this. I made a bash file "play-ogg" with "the bit" as below and found it does work. I
just copied out the bit with the way w1k0 showed me how.( I am getting used to it now.)
The "ogg123" was the ogg-file player with full of options that I found with `man ogg123`.
But this "play-ogg" does not work on my SUSE-10.2 despite of it has "ogg123" in it's
/usr/bin dir. It seems something to do with "...-a -f /proc/asound/pcm ]" bit that I don't
know how at the moment. This kind of tiny discovery is enough to keep my-novice-self
happily playing along with linux at the moment. After I got this working on SUSE, I am
going to try to find out "how the Adriane-knoppix's speech-dispatcher" is done, though
this is a big challenge for me. Mean while I postponed the even bigger challenge "Arch
Linux" till later.

##--play-ogg------------------------------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/bash
case "$CMDLINE" in *nosound*|*noaudio*|*nostartsound*) true ;; *)
# Play sound if soundcard is alive and soundfile present
[ -r /usr/share/sounds/startup.ogg -a -f /proc/asound/pcm ] && \
type -p ogg123 >/dev/null 2>&1 && \
{ exec ogg123 -q -p 64 /usr/share/sounds/startup.ogg 2>/dev/null & sleep 1; }
;;
esac
##-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

( )Dear MTK358,

I clicked your link to "LinuxCommand" and found the tutorial even I could do with.
I say "Thank you!" for your directions to "LinuxCommand.org" and ""The Arch Way".
I downloaded "Arch's-core-iso" to give myself a try with it's "Beginners' Guide". I
found tutorials there is so much better than what I have seen elsewhere before. I
don't know how but some how I can read these guide without falling asleep...quite
a while. Even I may start to learn a bit by bit with my mackerel's attention span. Due
to my short attention span I learn shallow and wide. It's progression is 2x-very slow.
( .........zz...zzzz..! )

But, I am aiming to live long and have long time to learn about anything and not worried
much about my attention span. The healthy laziness to avoid rashing into doing no-good
or unnecessary things to do. It is the way of natural children? Also, I love being a novice
who can ask silly questions to exparts.( ) I hope you and your friends and everyone
to live long too!( )

"No one have to die" is a truth, don't you believe? ---godoten ( )

Silly me:

But of course it wouldn't work, because I have forgotten to put the startup.ogg" file into
SUSE's /usr/share/sounds dir. I was wondering why quite a while before I realized that I
haven;t copied the file into the directory just now.( )
