View Full Version : [xubuntu] [SOLVED] mounting trouble

September 12th, 2008, 05:26 PM
Hey everyone.
I am having some difficulty mounting a second hard drive. It seems like there are a million threads on here with problems mounting but I can't seem to find an answer to my problem. I know that the hdd I'm trying to mount is sdb1 and have formatted it to ext2, but when I mount it I just get a lost+found folder where it should be. I followed the information here to format. http://www.ehow.com/how_1000631_hard-drive-linux.html

see this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=917864) thread. of course, replace ext3 with ext2.

Can you post the result of

sudo fdisk -l
cat /etc/fstab/
sudo blkid

Edit - indeed, do follow the thread instead :)

you will also have to replace gksudo and gedit with sudo and whatever text app is used in xubuntu.

you can use
gksudo mousepad instead of gksuod gedit
