Mounting Devices...
January 27, 2008 07:13PM
Hi all;

I've partitioned the HD of my laptop into 3 partitions and a swap.

HDA1= / or Root; 10 Gb

HDA2= /home 6,5; Gb

HDA3= seperate partition, still unused; 10Gb

SWAP= 2,5; Gb.

Now I'd like to use HDA3 to put all my MP3-files (+/- 8Gb) on, so I could use XMMS to play the files from this seperate partition...

But I don't seem to get access to this partition, hmmmm I don't know why and how, so some help will be appreciated very much.

Best, Ruud Kuin

right click on the desktop and choose Utilities from the menu. Then choose Partition Manager from that sub menu. That will open "GParted" and you will have a visual representation of all the partitions that elive can see. It might just be that you need to format the partition with a file system that elive can read. If you have more than one disk there is a drop down menu in the upper right hand corner of GParted that you can switch disks with.

I have a similar set up and I use RieserFS and it works great.

Good luck. emosmile
