Hi everyone I’m new to OpenSuse 11.2,
In Yast partitions configurations, I’ve mounted all NTFS partitions successfully without ticking “read-only”,
and according to this webpage:
NTFS - openSUSE
I checked my fstab file, there’s no “-ro” in the file.
But I still couldn’t write to any mounted NTFS partitions, I can’t do paste file, can’t save changed files into NTFS partition.
Could anyone suggest a solution ?
Thanks a lot!
Have a read of this guide:
HowTo Mount NTFS Filesystem Partition Read Write Access in openSUSE
BTW, it is worthwhile checking your NTFS partitions (with windwows) to see if the ‘dirty bit’ is set. NTFS journaling sometimes requires a check.
Post again if you need help.
Just FYI deano, the version of ntfs-3g in openSUSE 11.2 (version 2009-4-4) checks the dirty bit and fixes it automatically if necessary, so the failure to mount due to the presence of the dirty bit doesn’t happen much in openSUSE 11.2 and upwards. Occasionally it fails and the more sophisticated chkdsk on windows is necessary, but rarely.
Thank you two!
I’ve successfully been able to write into NTFS partition by changing ntfs-3g mounting parameters to “default” according to the link.
