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?
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:
/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:
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.
