I am a new OpenSuse’s user (with KDE). I actually use Ubuntu (Gnome) on my laptop, so I am totally a newbie
I have two HDD on my PC; the first one (roughly 80 Gbyte) contains the installation of OpenSuse and an installation of Windows Xp (and the swap area naturally). The second HDD is dedicated to data storage.
The problem is that Windows sees the second HDD, whereas OpenSuse does not.
Any suggestion to solve the problem?? Please somebody help a confused new user:sarcastic:
Thank you in advance.
What we need is the result of a su terminal:
and then the contents of
kdesu kwrite /etc/fstab
Try and tell us which partition in the fdisk output is the one you need to see.
Thank you for your answer!
This is the output of fdisk -l:
linux-y8br:/home/muko # fdisk -l

It seems that there is no trace of the other HDD, but from WindowsXP I can see it…:sarcastic:
So you have a HD you can see in windows but not in SUSE. I would be less surprised if it was the other way around.
Do you see the same if you open Yast Partitioner?
And in addition to caf4926’s question:
Is it NTFS?
Is it just one partition or several?
Can you describe the partitions on it please, including filesystems?
Was/were the filesystem/s created in xp or in vista?
What country code would be relevant?
The HD (250 GB) is NTFS and it has a unique partition created with Partition Magic in WindowsXP.
Yast Partitioner does not see this HD, only the other HD where OpenSuse and WindowsXP are installed; further also during the installation phase OpenSuse did not see the other HD, whereas during the WindowsXP installation I saw both :sarcastic:
The situation seems to be quite strange…any further suggestion?
It’s got me puzzled. What’s the brand and model of the hdd?
And just curiosity: why make a partition from within a running xp with a third party application like partition magic – was your xp partitioner not working? [that’s not the problem – I’m just curious]
