Can't mount second HDD
 
Hi,

I cannot mount my second hard drive. I can see it in the hardware list as hde1.

I tried :
mount /dev/hde
mount: can't find /dev/hde in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

mount /dev/hde1
mount: can't find /dev/hde1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab


The drive is NTFS but i had no problems to mount it with Suse.

Try doing a mkdir /mnt/test and then using the mount command like this: mount /dev/hde1 /mnt/test

If that doesn't work then try looking at your /etc/fstab and/or /etc/mtab files and see if you can determine the problem (perhaps you need to add an entry for this device in fstab) (feel free to post here for more help if necessary).

if you want to mount an NTFS drive you will need to compile support into your kernel or get a precompiled module from here http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/index.html
and then ounce the RPM is installed edit your fstab accordingly :cool:
