Thread: Silly! Can't find teh disk manager to add partition!

  1. #1

    Default Silly! Can't find teh disk manager to add partition!

    Pardon my sillyness!

    I cannot find the Disk Manager! I read that there is a "KDE Disk Manager" but I can't find it. I tried entering GParted into the terminal, and Parted, and other such words.

    I currently have Vista, Swap, Suse, and then unallocated space which I want to use for Data storage which is to be shared with Vista. I figured that I should format it to FAT system.

    Not sure!

    I created a partition and formatted it with FAT. How do I now mount it? And I would like it to mount automatically on bootup ideally.

    you can manage that in the yast partitioner
    edit fstab settings

    but I usually edit fstab manually

    /etc/fstab

    make a copy of the contents and post here
    also backup a copy of the file somewhere

    you have to be super user to open it

    In the yast partitioner you can edit your new partition choosing a mount point by your choice. Accept all and then reboot even if not necessary. If you don't know very well what you are doing i suggest not to touch fstab. Let yast do the job for you
