Re: [Solved] No longer I can mount ntfs partitions:

You really expect that this post will result in help? 

Do yourself a favor and google "how to ask questions the smart way" then follow the first link.


Edit: Though if I am directing you there, I should also make it explicit that after you follow the link, you should read the contents of the page.

Well, you can be sure WonderWoofy has a good technical level.
He told you that because what you typed there does not make sense and is not possible to help you with such data.


"open source is about choice"
No.
Open source is about opening the source code complying with this conditions, period. The ability to choose among several packages is just a nice side effect.

Corvin, where did you get the service-file mbt-ntfs\x2dc.mount? And what is it supposed to do?

Re: [Solved] No longer I can mount ntfs partitions:

First actually system no longer mount 3g-ntfs partitions ns while booting system stops and asks for root password and arch boots in failure mode prompt also hints above systemctl command results are also above it looks that either something lack in OS or one of package is broken.

It looks like somehow similar to:

https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=147889

So this file with mount extension is coded mount point it looks like badly coded I have to use journald

Re: [Solved] No longer I can mount ntfs partitions:

Whether or not I have a reasonable "technical level" or not still does jot change the fact that your post was seriously packing with information about your problem. People here are helping you voluntarily, so it is ruder I think to assume that potential help should have to try and decipher "hints" to get at your problem. It certainly rather sucks to have the first complete sentence that relates to your problem six posts in.

Re: [Solved] No longer I can mount ntfs partitions:

I was only looking if anyone has similar problem and that is that. You are prone to treat people from above I've read yours several post. Working as volunteer doesn't mean that you don't have to use words like please. I've noticed that you are active in but new on this forum, so are you young freshman or even teenager? You are only member of this forum. Not moderator don't forget it.

Re: [Solved] No longer I can mount ntfs partitions:

I really meant that there is an article titled "how to ask questions the smart way". It is very well written and details how one can make a very good first post. My intent was not to offend you here, but to get you to post in a not quite so cryptic way when asking for help. Maybe my activity here has made me a bit curt when finding posts like yours, but it still does not make your question (or others like it) any easier to decipher.

Re: [Solved] No longer I can mount ntfs partitions:

To be delicate being curt you show yours problems and iritation or even violence, what for? relax yourself, there is a lot of sunshine in california

btw. reading journalctl -xb resolves problem, contrary to pre systemd, when you could mount hibernated ntfs partition in rw mode, and then to be in trouble when you save antyhing on such partition systemd declines mounting such partitions unless you mark it in fstab as ro. And that is all.

Re: [Solved] No longer I can mount ntfs partitions:

I have read that mounting a hibernated windows partition can cause sever risk to your data on said partition.  This was apparently true before our systemd days, but has become even more relevant since windows now does some kind of "fast boot" which is not really booting at all, but rather hibernating between sessions.
