Background: I just upgraded to 13.10 from 12.04 on my Thinkpad-T500 (a fresh installation actually). I installed a base system using the minimal iso, and then installed the kde-plasma-desktop and a few other needed packages from the official repos. This computer dual boots with a Windows 7 installation.
Problem: I attempted to edit /etc/fstab like i have with previous versions, in order to have the two windows system partitions "hidden" and left alone by ubuntu, and my ntfs data partition to be mounted so that i can then integrate it with symbolic links to my /home folders. However, when i attempt to reboot with the new fstab, i get a bsod. In order to fix the problem i had to boot on a live-cd and edit my fstab back to the way it was previously (with no entries for the ntfs partitions.)
I confirmed that ntfs-3g is installed using
I also created the directories /.WinSysRes /.Windows7 and /.Data
apt-cache policy ntfs-3g
here is the edited fstab that is not working for some reason. Is it possible I'm missing some package that is needed for mounting the partitions like this, since i did a base system install rather than using the full kubuntu install?
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
