(gelöst) (solved) Disks not listed
« on: 2017/03/26, 04:55:02 »
Tried to do an install of the latest Patience on an existing installation and the disk information does not show in /disks.  I have 2 disks, the first having 2 ntfs and 2 ext4 partitions, the other having the root home and media ext4 partitions. 
Up until now I used  /disks/disk1part4 as storage for BackinTime snapshots, being on a different disk in case of failure.  Now they are not visible.  I did this install with the newest version twice with the same result.  Went back and installed the previous version (16.1 I think) and all partitions of disk 1 are again listed. 
The data from BackinTime appears to have been untouched now that I can access it again with 16.1. 

Just wondering if I am missing something with the new installer.  In any case I am up and running till my fingers strike out on their own again  :)

Thanks for any thoughts

Cliff

Not sure if this will help, is the disk partition mounted? What does /etc/fstab show??

Just going from memory now, but I believe just the partitions on sdb were listed.  And I'm pretty sure I tried "mount /disks/disk1part4" resulting in a not found error.  But they were listed as devices and accessible in dolphin.  As I indicated, I'm back on the previous release and all is well with fstab listing all 8 partitions over both disks. But I hope this discussion might assist someone else.

Hello cliff6056,
this new behaviour is intended.

By default the old installer mounted all existing partitions, but most team members didn't like this behaviour. With the new calamares  installer siduction will only touch its own partitions (i.e. rootfs, home, swap) and leave other partitions unmounted and unchanged.

Ofcourse users can add more entries in /etc/fstab and mount whatever they want.

Thanks for the explanation musca.  Now that I know what's happening I can do some reading.

Sorry to come back with this, but upon trying a new install again (17.1) I find that all partitions are listed in the fstab.  I also created mount points for sda3 and sda4 in the installer.  However, I still can't path to /disks/disk1part4.  Am I missing something obvious?  I've tried researching  this but I guess my combination of search words doesn't lead me to a solution.

Thanks. 
Cliff

Have you tried real mount points ?

example:

Code: [Select]
/disks/disk1part10
Please post the output of blkid (as root of course)

Thanks musca and Piper.  All seems well.  PEBKAC  error.  Indeed I was adding things wrong to the fstab.  Thanks so much for your time and pointing me in the right direction.

Glad to hear that you have resolved your disk problems, it would be great if you went back and marked this as [Solved], thanks. ;)
