PostPosted: Thu 01 Aug 2013, 11:33    Post subject: Problem mounting ntfs partition  

This distribution is one of the best yet Very Happy , however I get the following error message when trying to mount an ntfs partition on which Windows 8 is installed. I have made certain that Windows is properly shut down and have run chkdsk on the partition. Precise pups or derivatives are the only distributions that have this problem so something is generating a false message that prevents the ntfs partition from being mounted read/write. Others such as slacko have no problem mounting it.

Executing this code results in:
Code:
#  mount -t ntfs-3g -o remove_hiberfile /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
Windows is hibernated, refused to mount.
Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Operation not permitted
The NTFS partition is hibernated. Please resume and shutdown Windows
properly, or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option, or
mount the volume read-write with the 'remove_hiberfile' mount option.
For example type on the command line:

            mount -t ntfs-3g -o remove_hiberfile /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
WARNING: NTFS f.s. mounted read-only.
nohup: appending output to nohup.out

@jim1911: Here is something to try.

Pick a Puppy where NTFS mounting works and copy its ntfs-3g components into Precise.

For example, I went into Wary 5.3 and got the files /bin/ntfs-3g, /lib/libntfs-3g.so.79 and /lib/libntfs-3g.so.79.0.0.

I dropped these into Precise and mounted an NTFS partition. It worked.

Do you have a way of restoring your Win8 setup if something bad happens? Do you really want to be writing into its partition in the first place?

This morning the scroll wheel is working - must have been gremlins.

Hi rcrsn51,

Your suggestion worked. Very Happy I deleted files ntfs-3g, libntfs-3g.so.831, and libntfs-3g.so831.0.0 and replaced them with slacko 5.5.70 files nfts-3g, libntfs-3g.so.83, and libntfs-3g.so.83.0.0 and it's working perfectly.

As for restoration of my Windows 8 partition, I have full backup, however I am frequently writing to the mbr since I use grub4dos and allow it to change the mbr and I make frequent edits to the menu.lst on that partition. Never a problem.

I do have another problem with precise that's right down your alley. Xsane cannot find my HP all-in-one. I have installed your hplip_scan-3.12.4.pet which has always been reliable.

Thanks,
Jim

@rcrsn51

I would like to do something similar...

I have 2 Sony VAIO PCG-505DL that work with Wary 5.5, but the video fails with Precise 5.6 - 5.7 black screen.

Could you suggest where and possibly what video drivers to transplant?

Bill

Sorry, I don't know where to ask.

I downloaded a program called "x-tile" (deb file). Installed it and it was listed under utility in the program menu.

When i click on it to launch the program, nothing happened. I launch the program to check the dependencies, but it says nothing is missing.

Really appreciate if anyone can help. This is a useful program that will help to make 2 - 4 windows tile nicely side by side.

Thanks

Are you using precise 5.7? just curious, have you tried to compile it from source? Or try to check the file permission of the executable.

Presumably it is intended for use with the default Ubuntu desktop. Precise Puppy is not Ubuntu. I doubt that it will work.

I no longer have a copy of hplip_scan-3.12.4. But I tested the latest 3.13.7 in Precise and it worked fine, both with USB and wifi.

Yes, I am using precise puppy 5.7. I downloaded the deb version and the installation went through ok just by clicking on the .deb file. The program was even listed in the program menu.

Maybe, it can only run in ubuntu and not in ubuntu based puppy, I don't know.

It is a pity because it is a very nice program to have if it can be made to run in puppy precise 5.7.

I will be able to watch video in one window and check up email in another window while both windows are tiled side by side.

The Xfce window manager / desktop environment has this feature. But "x-tile" claimed that most of the windows manager are supported (mate/lxde/openbox...)

PostPosted: Fri 02 Aug 2013, 07:28    Post subject: X Tile  

It is python

import sys, os, gettext, ctypes, ctypes.util, locale
import gtk, gconf
import __builtin__

# x-tile
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/x-tile", line 30, in <module>
import gtk, gconf
ImportError: No module named gtk
#

So nothing to compile
just import gtk Laughing Laughing Laughing

edit: simargl fast faster Laughing
