16  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / fstab on: December 22, 2007, 09:41:10 AM

I'm runnig Pardus on a dualboot system together with OS/2 and I have problems auto mounting my JPF and HPFS partitions. At the moment my fstab file looks like this.

LABEL=PARDUS_ROOT    /                ext3      defaults,user_xattr,noatime 0 0
/.swap               none             swap      sw                   0 0
none                 /proc            proc      nosuid,noexec        0 0
none                 /dev/shm         tmpfs     nodev,nosuid,noexec  0 0
/dev/sda1            /mnt/sda1        ntfs-3g   dmask=007,fmask=117,locale=nl_NL.UTF-8,gid=6 0 0
/dev/sda4            /mnt/sda4        vfat      quiet,shortname=mixed,dmask=007,fmask=117,utf8,gid=6 0 0
/dev/sda5            /mnt/sda5        jfs       defaults             0 0
/dev/sda8            /mnt/sda8        jfs       defaults             0 0
/dev/sda7            /mnt/sda7        vfat      quiet,shortname=mixed,dmask=007,fmask=117,utf8,gid=6 0 0

With my normal user (frank) I'm unable to use my two JFS partitions. I can use the files on my HPFS partiton (sda6), but I like to auto mount this data-partition, because programs like Firefox and Thunderbird can find their profiles on this partition. Also spreadsheets, textfiles and stuff like that is on it.

I looked on the Internet and tried some sugestions, but that didn't work. Like:
/dev/sda6            /mnt/sda6        hpfs rw,suid,dev,exec,auto,users,async,umask=003 0 0


/dev/sda6            /mnt/sda6        hpf   user,gid=100,uid=1000,umask=022 1 2

My user ID is:
uid=1000(frank) gid=100(users) groepen=100(users),6(disk),10(wheel),18(audio),20(dialout),27(video),200(pnp),201(removable),204(power),205(pnpadmin)

In both cases I was not able to access the HPFS partition anymore. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Kavani

Something is broken in 2007.3. I tried to install Pardus on a primary partition, that didn't work. Then I installed it without grub as you suggested, no success. I ended up installing Pardus 2007.1 and upgrading it to 2007.3 level. That worked like it should (with grub in the Pardus partition). I have a working installation now, so I can finally start using Linux and learn how to use it.  Grin

Hello Kavani,

it's sure odd. I tried a third time to install Pardus. First I moved all my data drives to the end of the hard disk and made a new partition for Pardus. I installed Padus again, but I ran into the same problem. I guess something goes wrong when you install Pardus on a logical partition with the bootloader on the same partition. I can't use a primary partition, because there are already three of them on the drive.

Maybe it works as you suggested, but I have to think about it. I like my current bootmanager, it is in the MBR and if something goes wrong reinstall it is easy. If I use Grub and something goes wrong with my Linux partition I'm unable to start from my other partitions without reinstalling Linux.

I was thinking, can it be that the Pardus partition is >1024 cylinders of the disk?

yesterday I installed Pardus on my R60 and it was a smooth install, everything worked as it should. After a reboot I logged in with my user with administrator rights and did some customizing of the user interface, WLAN etc. After this I did some browsing on the Internet and shutdown my laptop. Today I tried to startup Pardus and got an error message "load error" and the computer didn't go any further. As I'm not that experienced with Linux I decided to reinstall Pardus. This install was without any problems, like the first time. After the install I rebooted and could login, after going through the Kaptan program I rebooted and sure enough I got that "load error" message again.  Undecided

The way I installed Grub is non-standard, I installed it on the Pardus partition, because I already have a boot manager. This setup worked fine with Pardus 2007.1 on my old laptop. How can I check if Grub is working correctly?

Hello Thijs,

I heard it being mentioned a couple of months ago in a Dutch videocast called n3rd.tv, this was just after my unpleasant experience with Ubuntu. Then I searched for Pardus in Google and ended up on the Dutch website of Pardus. I installed it and it worked (except for Wifi networking) on my laptop.

Kind regards,

Hello Pardoes,

can you please post a reply in English in the non-Dutch parts of the forum, this way other (non-Dutch speaking) people can also benefit from your answer.

kind regards,

This weekend I installed Pardus 2007.1, but was still not able to get my WIFI network working with Network-manager, not with WEP and not with WPA, only with no encryption.  Sad

That sounds good. :-)

Not being able to use WIFI is for me the reason that I'm not using Linux more often. I like working on the big table in the livingroom and this is not possible without WIFI.
