    Hello,
    today i installed debian lenny 64bit using the netiso.
    flash player works.
    dvds work.
    opera installed and works.
    nvidia driver installed and working. first time I broke my x server but since i backed up the xorg.conf first I simply deleted xorg.conf ,started x restored original xorg.conf and corrected it.
    compiz fusion working.
    samba works.
    printer works.
    java works but keeps crashing when trying to load runescape.

    the creative x-fi driver doesnt start after following the information on the debian wiki.
    output as follows:

    I cannot mount my ntfs partitions in nautilus. i searched for ntfs in synaptec and installed the ones i thought i needed.
    error as follows:
    Cannot mount volume.
    Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume 'Data'.

    it was easier to setup than I thought. once the few small problems have been sorted out I will be using it alot.

    Lodore, I had the same problem with x64 Lenny when I ran it about a month ago, couldn't seem to mount my NTFS partition. I kinda gave up on it without too much research, but usually I am able to edit /etc/fstab and once I get the right line in there I can get them to auto mount easy enough. But this time I couldn't. Sorry, I'm not any help, just confirming your issue I guess.

    Otherwise Lenny is great yes.... they have made it much friendlier out of the box now, most everything works (except the ntfs issue). Another one of my favorites. After a lot of hopping, I pretty much settled on Ubuntu, Lenny and Sabayon as my favorites.

    For ntfs in Debian, you need to edit the fstab manually to mount it. You also need to have ntfs-3g loaded and in case you don't wish to edit fstab manually, you have to install ntfs tools. This is why I like distros like Ubuntu where all this is automatically added. They realize the importance of reading ntfs partitions in majority of the Linux installs where its dual boot between Win and Lin.

    Hey arup,
    thanks.
    I acually prefer debian because with desktop and standard system you get a basic desktop system. It didnt have samba installed so I simply opned up synaptec and installed it.

    Glad it worked out for you, I too like pure Lin like Debian or Mandriva but I have to make Lin popular so I use Ubuntu and spread the word to non Lin users. In Ubuntu, right clicking share on a folder induces synaptic to install samba.

    It's been a while since i mounted an ntfs partition, but perhaps you can tell us what you tried.

    One thought that pops up is, did you create the directory (mkdir /media/windows_data_whatever) where you're trying to mount it on?

    Hello Pedro,
    No i didnt create a directory to mount it to.
    with ubuntu and fedora i simply right click mount in Nautilus and it throw an error but mounted the partition anyway. in debian lenny it throws an error and doesnt mount it. i never needed to create a folder to mount a partition to before so i didnt think i would on debian lenny.
    i may try it later.

    Actually, i never got a straight answer on that. Perhaps mnt, since media is for removable devices.
    /mnt/whatever-its-called

    lodore,

    You may also consider installing pysdm which makes setting permissions and fstab mounting quite a breeze.

    Arup, I don't think pysdm is in the Lenny repos like it is in Ubuntu... I guess it can be gotten from their site though.

    Kerodo,

    Good point but the deb can always ben downloaded from Ubuntu repositories.
