    Default mount command works in KDE, but Gnome ...


    hi there people!
    I'm new. either in this forum and whole linux world!
    I'm having a problem...I'm unable to mount my ntfs partitions. I'm
    using opensuse 10.3. with KDE environment, everything is fine. but when
    I decided to change to Gnome this problem occured. when I type in
    terminal:
    mount /dev/sdb8 ~/Desktop/winpar -t ntfs
    and then press enter, nothing happens! even if I wait a few minutes. is
    there any logs, related to mount command? so I can check them to find
    out whats going on.
    by the way, I don't have a swap partition...and there is only 500 MB
    free space on linux partition...can this be the reason? if so, then why
    KDE works fine in these conditions?
    any suggestions?

    and I'm sorry for my poor english! it's not my native language you
    know!
    its my first linux attepmt. and I'm just loving it!
    cheers...

    Hi & welcome!

    Well... not having any issues here with mount under GNOME (terminal).

    After having entered the command, check the output of mount. Is your
    /dev/sdb8 listed?

    Is /dev/sdb8 a fixed disk or usb/other type device?

    After the mount attempt... type ' dmesg '. If there are any kernel
    errors related to the mount, you might find something there.
    Also check /var/log/messages (you need root rights to read this file).

    Cheers,
    Wj

    P.s. if /dev/sdb8 is a fixed drive it might be easier to add a fixed
    mount point using YaST > Partitions. Then you won't need the manual
    mount each time.
