I am trying to mount a ext3 partition, in the file browser I get this: libhal-storage.c 1401 : info: called libhal_free_dbus_error but dbuserror was not set. process 4300: applications must not close shared connections - see dbus_connection_close() docs. this is a bug in the application. error: device /dev/hdb5 is not removable error: could not execute pmount After this i tryed it in the terminal: 64studio:/home/thomas# mount device ext3 /dev/hdb5 Usage: mount -V : print version mount -h : print this help mount : list mounted filesystems mount -l : idem, including volume labels So far the informational part. Next the mounting. The command is `mount [-t fstype] something somewhere'. Details found in /etc/fstab may be omitted. mount -a [-t|-O] ... : mount all stuff from /etc/fstab mount device : mount device at the known place mount directory : mount known device here mount -t type dev dir : ordinary mount command Note that one does not really mount a device, one mounts a filesystem (of the given type) found on the device. One can also mount an already visible directory tree elsewhere: mount --bind olddir newdir or move a subtree: mount --move olddir newdir A device can be given by name, say /dev/hda1 or /dev/cdrom, or by label, using -L label or by uuid, using -U uuid . Other options: [-nfFrsvw] [-o options] [-p passwdfd]. For many more details, say man 8 mount . 64studio:/home/thomas# it is still not mounted! has anyone any idea how I can mount the partition?

Thanks for the help! I added the Partition permanently, with gedit /etc/fstab and it worked. But anyway,here ist the partition info: 64studio:/home/thomas# fdisk -l Disk /dev/hda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 * 1 3905 31366881 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/hda2 3906 11818 63561172+ 83 Linux /dev/hda3 19209 19457 2000092+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/hda4 11819 19208 59360175 83 Linux Partition table entries are not in disk order Disk /dev/hdb: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hdb1 1 10485 84220731 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/hdb2 21634 30401 70428960 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/hdb3 10486 21633 89546310 5 Extended /dev/hdb5 10486 21633 89546278+ 83 Linux Partition table entries are not in disk order 64studio:/home/thomas# dmesg | grep hd Kernel command line: root=/dev/hda4 ro vga=791 splash=silent ide0: BM-DMA at 0xfc00-0xfc07, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:DMA ide1: BM-DMA at 0xfc08-0xfc0f, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:pio hda: WDC WD1600AAJB-00WRA0, ATA DISK drive hdb: WDC WD2500JB-00GVC0, ATA DISK drive hdc: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive hdc: ATAPI 40X DVD-ROM DVD-R-RAM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33) hda: max request size: 512KiB hda: 312581808 sectors (160041 MB) w/8192KiB Cache, CHS=19457/255/63, UDMA(100) hda: cache flushes supported hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4 hdb: max request size: 512KiB hdb: 488397168 sectors (250059 MB) w/8192KiB Cache, CHS=30401/255/63, UDMA(100) hdb: cache flushes supported hdb: hdb1 hdb2 hdb3 < hdb5 > Adding 2000084k swap on /dev/hda3.

Hi, The command would be something like this: # mount -t ext3 /dev/hd?? /media/hd?? To find out about your partition layout. As root # # fdisk -l To make a permanent mount point. e.g. for data. # mkdir /media/data # gedit /etc/fstab Add: /dev/hd?? /media/data ext3 defaults 0 2 or /dev/sd?? /media/data ext3 defaults 0 2 Restart your computer..... Extra info: hd?? = your partition details. Found with these. # fdisk -l $ dmesg | grep hd $ ls /dev | grep hd Post back your partition info. Cheers, dave
