View Full Version : change /home to a partition of another disk

01-14-2005, 02:26 PM
I have 2 harddisks (hda en hdd). My installation is in hda1, the swap is in hdd1. And all i want is to change the /home to /dev/hdd2 (which is 30 GB).
This what i did:
# mount /dev/hdd2 /mnt/hdd2tmp (i have created this directory)
# cd /home
# cp -ax * /mnt/hdd2tmp
# cd /
# umount /home
# umount /mnt/hdd2tmp
# mount /dev/hdd2 /home
And fstab changed
/dev/hdd2 /home reiserfs defaults 1 2

Its not working...." Could not read network connection list etc etc."
Maybe i am doing something wrong (sure) ...but what ?

First, this post should probably be in the HD install forum so it can get the most exposure. The customization & remastering forum is used to discuss making you very own customized Knoppix CD.

Next, where & when is the error occuring? Upon boot up? Upon accessing the /home such as ls -l /home? In the past I have done your steps & have never had problems.

The error is occuring upon boot.
" Could not read network connection list
Check of programme :dcopserver" is working"

a lot of "//.kde/share/config/ etcetc is not writable"
And last
"No write access to $HOME directory (/)
KDE is unable to start.

Thanks for helping me.
