Thread: can' t read other partition

    Default can' t read other partition

    hi,
    I just installed opensuse 11. I cannot read my other partition anymore. Does this have anything to do with Suse changing the ext3? How could I fix such a thing?

    Default Re: can' t read other partition

    Hi,
    you could do cat /etc/fstab as root and see if there is an entry for "the other partition". It might also be helfull to post the output...

    Hi, I'm afraid it' s not there:
    Code:
    /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST980813AS_5NH09FJD-part5 swap                 swap       defaults              0 0
    /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST980813AS_5NH09FJD-part1 /                    ext3       acl,user_xattr        1 1
    /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_ST980813AS_5NH09FJD-part3 /home                ext3       acl,user_xattr        1 2
    proc                 /proc                proc       defaults              0 0
    sysfs                /sys                 sysfs      noauto                0 0
    debugfs              /sys/kernel/debug    debugfs    noauto                0 0
    usbfs                /proc/bus/usb        usbfs      noauto                0 0
    devpts               /dev/pts             devpts     mode=0620,gid=5       0 0
    while it should be somewhere, cause hey!? here it is:
    Code:
    matthijs@linux-w98b:/dev/disk/by-label> ls
    Dreamlinux
    (other partitions happen not to have labels.

    Try ls /dev/disk/by-id/ instead of by-label. should be listed there. Or is it an extra harddisk, not just a partition?
    You can also use Yast > System > Partitioner

    ah sorry, I figured it out with the partitioner. It somehow didn't want to mount (or at least not in an obvious way). I'm coming from ubuntu where I never had this problem (others though, that's why I'm here).
    thanks a lot.
