• Can't mount Mint's home partition on Antergos


    when I mount Mint’s home partition. I don’t see any files.

    Just those two files are contained in my personal folder:

    alt text

    What could this be? Could it be related to the LTS Kernel or do I need Mint’s user rights to access the files?

  • @gunjah292-0 How did you mount it? The exact command?

  • I mounted with nemo automatically to /media. I also tried to mount it in fstab via

    UUID=5ecc15ab-41a4-4be6-9448-07a3acf646a6      /mnt/data      ext4    defaults        0 2
  • may it is a lvm?

  • Not that I know of! I don’t believe that Mint does use this by standard.

    Partition table entries are not in disk order.
    1. You’re sure your Mint filesystem isn’t corrupted?

    2. My second guess is that you don’t have full access permissions to the mounted filesystem. Can you for example create a new folder in that mounted filesystem?

  • I had a similar problem mounting my ubuntu partition. Somehow mounting /dev/sdaX explicitly works better.

  • @gunjah Not sure if you need root access, did you try to open as root?

  • I just deleted the partition now and increased the home partition. Problem solved.

  • Well, not completely as it seems. I just tried to install Matlab which is a pretty big application and yaourt says that there is not enough free space, even though I increased the size of the partition to 200GB.
    Weirdly some folder have more free disk space and others do. E.g. /dev, /run and /temp only show 4.1GB of free disk space, the others like 180GB of free space.

    How can I change this?

  • @gunjah https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Tmpfs
    By default, a tmpfs partition has its maximum size set to half your total RAM and is setup inside RAM.
    You can increase the size but will be stay with less RAM usable then…
    Disable automatic mount of tmp is also possible… and yaourt has an option to save his files in another path as far as i know…
