Re: cannot use my spare drive

Done and done. I now have a 3 tB Ext4 partition on that drive named "spare_disk".
I will reboot and see if it is then mounted.

Re: cannot use my spare drive

There is something missing on that screenshot.
The partition to the left actually reads:
Filesystem
Partition 1: D0
628GB Ext4

Somehow gimp did not pick that up, but it is there.

cannot use my spare drive

My LinuxMint box has a 250gB SSD and a 1 tB SATA drive. I wanted the SATA drive to be part of my regular file system perhaps as /spare/ or something like that. However It is located as /media/roy/da0a939b-3ded-407e-9f01-113e860f83d5/ and I am unable to use it. I have tried to copy files from my file...

Re: hdmi audio works but line out has no signal

Unplugging and replugging the line out on the back of my PC case worked. I now have analog audio to my amplifier / speakers. However i find that my HDMI audio is deselected. It seems I can have one or the other but not both. Oh well.

Thanks for the help -

Re: using /etc/fstab to mount exported NFS files

Success! I was not able to do the mount with sartoris:/etc/fstab or with my crontab, but i wrote a very simple shell script and had sartoris:/etc/rc.local call it. Now ratliff:/d1 ( where twelve years of files are stored) is automatically mounted on boot. And I still have my NetBSD installation inta...
