  1. I did this and it seemed to work but now when I restart my PC it boots into a terminal instead of the desktop I deleted the # and I have recovered the desktop, I believe some files were copied over to the new hdd that are essential to the functionality of my desktop. I am debating install the Alpha 2 release and chocking this up to a learning experience...
  2. I tried the su and the su - i tried the it on one line and like this. same results.. I hope I'm just an idiot. [steve@localhost ~]$ su Password: [root@localhost steve]# nano -w /etc/fstab bash: nano: command not found [root@localhost steve]# -w /etc/fstab bash: -w: command not found [root@localhost steve]#
  3. I'm using Mandriva One 2009.1 KDE. Still no luck [steve@localhost ~]$ su - Password: [root@localhost ~]# /etc/fstab -bash: /etc/fstab: Permission denied [root@localhost ~]# also tried it with the "-" same results.
  4. Ahh, Thank you I apologize for my ignorance. Unfortunately when I attempt to comment the line out I receive the following error. "The document could not be saved, as it was not possible to write to /etc/fstab. I gave myself permission and obviously when I mounted the drive to /var (like an idiot) it saved. Can I replace it with fstab.old? I see that in the same folder and I tried manually overwriting it but I keep getting denied. Thank you again for dealing with noobs lol.
  5. I'm not sure what you mean "uncomment" I went to unmount it I receive this error msg. "error unmounting /var: device is busy"
  6. I cannot unmount it now am I screwed?
  7. Just for the heck of it I mounted it to /var and it no longer showed up on the side as locations this is the results; # Entry for /dev/sda1 : UUID=4097790b-892b-48c2-9953-e242a991b44e / ext3 defaults 1 1 # Entry for /dev/sda6 : UUID=8139ea13-822c-4a8e-871c-0fd497626f3f /home ext3 defaults 1 2 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 # Entry for /dev/sdb1 : UUID=93c84642-4c4a-4e34-a9b5-5786a1a17218 /var ext3 defaults 1 2 # Entry for /dev/sda5 : UUID=83e037f4-b42b-4ba1-8af6-22bd811f9dad swap swap defaults 0 0 I'm still relatively a noob to linux, is there a better mount point?
  8. First off, I want to apologize if this is a duplicate post, I searched and searched but didn't come across anything. I have Mandriva 2009.1 installed on my HP DV9608nr and I love it. Most stable Linux OS I've come across and I've tried many. Unfortunately I cannot get my second hard drive to mount. I've used the partitioning tool formatted and set the mount point, all that good stuff but I keep receiving the same error msg. "an error occurred while accessing 'Volume (ext3)', The system responded: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.PermissionDeniedByPolicy: org.freedesktop.hal.storage.mount-fixed auth_admin_keep_always <--(action,result) ". As far as I can tell I have all the permissions to make any adjustments needed. Thanks for any assistance in advanced!
