and how to mount G?

Post by mkbm » Thu Feb 19, 2004 8:45 pm

I have installed an old version of my gentoox...and now I am trying to mount my drives...I have mounted the C drive and now I want to mount my G drive.
I have a 200 GB hdd.
I need to know what device is the G drive...the C is /dev/hda51.

And when I try to mount it to /mnt/fatx/G there says "mount point does not exist"

How can I mount the G drive?

Code: Select all

su -
mkdir /mnt/fatx/g
chmod 777 /mnt/fatx/g
echo /dev/hda56\ /mnt/fatx/g\ fatx\ defaults,umask=0000\ 0\ 0 >> /etc/fstab
mount /dev/hda56
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?

I tried to follow the code without knowing what I was doing (supid :oops: ).

Q:
1) Can Gentoox create a new /etc/fstab file with the original info? (If not I guess I have to think back all steps I have tried to fix this by editing file..)

2) How do I know which /dev/hda?? is the G partition?

hda56 is the G partition. hda55 is F, hda50 is E, and hda51 is C. I'm assuming then that hda52-54 are the X, Y, and Z drives.

Thx for the reply, but Im still a bit stuck here ->

I have in /dev/ only:
hda
hda1
hda2
hda50 -> this is C
hda51 -> this is E
hda52 -> I try to mount -> empty (I know G: contains files & folders)
hda53 ->I try to mount -> empty
hda54 -> this is Z drive
hdb -> try to map and error with some read only msg..

My fstab contains the line:
/dev/hda51/ mnt/fatx/c fatx defaults,umask=0000 0 0
This line gives me access to the C :)
I have tried to add:
/dev/hda5*/ mnt/fatx/g fatx defaults,umask=0000 0 0
(*tried all)
Mounting only gives access to empty disks or msg that it is already mounted

Do you have any advice? Could it be that Gentoox does not see the G partition at all, hence it is not in fstab ?
