• [HELP] Unformatted file system

    My laptop has 2 hard drive , one is SSD while the other is old HDD. I use my SSD as my main boot drive and HDD as storage. I seleted the SSD to install Antergos and i think that the HDD shouldn’t be touched or erased. After installing I installed Partitionmanager and checked the HDD and the file system become unknown. Is the HDD is being formatted? And any solution to recover it?The screenshot on Partitionmanager

    Microsoft LDM data


    The HDD looks like there was a Windows installation on it with this kind of LVM from microsoft…

    Caus of this is out of my knowledge i would say Antergos can not see this…

    To mount this volume you need to install ldmtool from AUR:

    $ yaourt -S ldmtool

    and read here how to handle…

    But back on your main question : it is NOT formatted by installation, only unreadable by your system!

  • @joekamprad Alright, another problem encountered when installing ldmtools.
    ==> Starting build()…
    Making all in src

    fatal: BUG: initial ref transaction called with existing refs

    I do not know what this means PKGBUILD seems to be broken then…

  • @joekamprad seems other users also getting this error but there is no way to solve it.

  • @VolcaNoz said in [HELP] Unformatted file system:

    /usr/bin/makepkg: line 729: logpipe: unbound variable


    A workaround to avoid the conflict with BUILDDIR between makepkg and autogen.sh, is to edit the PKGBUILD.

    The line: ./autogen.sh --prefix=’/usr’
    becomes: BUILDDIR=’’ ./autogen.sh --prefix=’/usr’

    But this would not work…

  • But try to build manuall not with yaourt…
    download snapshot unpack and build with

    makepkg -si
  • @joekamprad sorry i am new to this, i have no idea how to do it

  • No problem, i try to build, but fails too…
    At github you can see, last change was 5 y ago… so no wonder…
    I take a look, may there is another option…
    Windows is installed and usable?
    Caus this should be a option.

  • @joekamprad the hdd comes with the laptop i just delete the windows partition instead of reformat,
    so maybe i should install windows and backup the data and then do a reformat on the hdd. Is that right?
