can' t read other partition

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

(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.
