Question :  How to mount NTFS   partition  on opensuse   12.2 ?

Answer :

First check the  disk partitions to find  ntfs  partitions  with fdsik utility

pirat9@linux-f2f1:~> sudo  /sbin/fdisk  -l
output:
Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525168 sectors
 Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
 Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
 I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
 Disk identifier: 0xdda1cb43
Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
 /dev/sda1            2048      206847      102400    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
 /dev/sda2          206848   204799999   102296576    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
 /dev/sda3       204800000  1740799999   768000000    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
 /dev/sda4   *  1740802046  1953523711   106360833    5  Extended
 /dev/sda5      1945714688  1953523711     3904512   82  Linux swap / Solaris
 /dev/sda6      1740802048  1835153407    47175680   83  Linux
 /dev/sda7      1835155456  1945712639    55278592   83  Linux

Now   mount  window  partition to    /opt/E  example  folder   like

mkdir /opt/E
sudo mount  /dev/sda3  /opt/E

now list  the  partition

ls -altr  /opt/E

Example:

pirat9@linux-f2f1:~> ls /opt/E/
Akeeba        recovered-19-5-2012
askfix        $RECYCLE.BIN  backup        Scans decoratie     Software
FAMILY_VIDEO  System Volume Information FOTOS         The Three Musketeers (2011) DVDRip XviD-MAXSPEED  Gentoo12.1   Torrents HTC Foto’s    VBOX Mail          Vmware  New folder    wamp

The NTFS driver ntfs-3g is installed by default and write support is enabled for root only. Modify /etc/fstab line where is mentioned windows, parameter dmask=002 and parameter fmask=113 to enable user writing. For example:

#Device Mountpoint Filesystem Parameters

/dev/sda3 /media user,users,gid=users,fmask=113,dmask=002,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

save  and  reboot to check

pirat9@linux-f2f1:~> df -k
