View Full Version : [xubuntu] Not detecting drives

November 1st, 2008, 12:44 AM
Okay, so today I installed the new verison of xubuntu and I can't find my other partitions, my overall question is just like this (http://ubuntu-virginia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=860391) but I have a different output. So far I have a 100gb hd(really like 88.4gb) and I set aside 40g for xubutu and xp, and 40 for overall media. With the output that sisco311 asked for, I saw this:
james@Ender:~$ mount
/dev/sda5 on / type ext3 (rw,relatime,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
/proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
varrun on /var/run type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
varlock on /var/lock type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=1777)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)

lrm on /lib/modules/2.6.27-7-generic/volatile type tmpfs (rw,mode=755)
securityfs on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)
james@Ender:~$ sudo fdisk -l

Partition table entries are not in disk order
james@Ender:~$ cat /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.

/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

So what do I exactly need to do here?

Thanks in advance!

what is the output of

sudo blkid


use that command to get the uuid's of the partitions.
i reccomend following what's there and using the uuid's to edit your fstab.

sudo nano fstab #(dont change whats there, just add the partitions that arent showing up)

read this guide carefully:
