Hi and thanks in advaced for any help you can give me. This is my first time trying linux and I am having a lot of fun so far. My problem is the following....I installed Daryna in a PIII with 384 of ram. and two hard drives. installation went smooth and I partitioned my hard drives as follows... My prymary hard drive is sda ext3 a "/" to mounted and I created a 1000 swap partition "sda1" My slave drive is sdb ext3 formated to use all the space available . Installation finished smoothly. The only problem I have is that I can't create folders on the second device. I can see the device and the only folder in there is called "lost and found" or something like it. When iI try opening that particular folder I get an error message. How can I fix this? Please help. I try searching the forum but I didn't find a link to fix my problem.
My second problem is that the graphic card in my syatem is not allowing me to use the desktop effects. My graphic card is Creative Labs 3d graphic blaster RIVA TNT2 32 mb. I installed the nvidia legacy drivers and I still can't enable the desktop effect. Is telling me that I need to enable the driver. When I enable the driver the resolution gets worst with only two screen resolution choices. Please help!!! I will really appreciate it. Thank you in advanced
The partition that you made on the second hard drive, did you tell it to point to /home, or did you just format it as ext3 space? If you didn't tell that partition to point to the /home directory, you might have trouble accessing it (though I have limited knowledge of accessing ext3 partitions outside of your current filesystem).
