my question is how can i do to appear all drives in programs like nero linux, K3B because i want to record a cd with nero linux or K3B and no way to see the drive c (windows xp)
I have the last version of slax USB instaled
do you mean that you want to access your windows xp partition
if that's the case, and assuming that's it's ntfs-formatted
you need to mount it
1. first create a mount point if it doesn't already exist
mkdir -p /mnt/sda1
(I'm assuming that your hard drive is SCSI or SATA, check with
if you see sda1, that's the case
otherwise you might see hda1 if it's an ide, in which case
replace sda1 by hda1 in my commands)
2. mount your windows partition
ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
if you do
you should be able to see the contents of your windows partition
There's a way to have the partition automatically mounted at boot
time (read the file cheatcodes.txt)
By default slax 6 will auto mount all mountable drives / media , unless you specify the noauto cheatcode.
If you open k3b at the gtop , just below the menu options , you will see the location bar (a folder icon).
Enter /mnt in it
You will see all your mounted drives / media.
C drive will be /mnt/sda1 or /mnt/hda1.
I hope you were not looking for c drive.
Linux/Unix identfies drives differently than windows.
hda (first IDE Hard Drive)
hda1 (first IDE Hard Drive, first patition), Windows C drive
hda2 (first IDE Hard Drive, second partition)
hdb (second IDE Hard Drive)
sda First SATA, SCSI or Pendrive
sda1 (first SATA, SCSI or Pendrive, first patition)
sda2 (first SATA, SCSI or Pendrive, second patition)
sdb Second SATA, SCSI or Pendrive
Linux/Unix can activate/deactivate drives.
This is called Mounting a Drive.
Slax will automount all available drives unless a cheat code is used to stop that action.
At the desktop click on system then click on Storage Media.
This will show all mounted drives.
By putting the pointer over the icon you can see the drive information.
Alternatively you can open a terminal and type mount to see drives mounted and drive information.
To mount a drive manually open a terminal: #mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1
This will mount the first IDE hard drive that has windows installed and formated NTFS
CAUTION this makes the drive writable
To unmount a drive, which will make it unavailable:
The command is umount, yes it is spelled correct
