Topic: (Solved: Partitions must be unmounted) All options grayed out
I installed Ubuntu 6.06 from live CD without a glitch on a system with Windows XP SP2 (P4 2.4 MHz, 1Gb RAM, NVidia 256 RAM, Maxtor 6Y120L0 120 Gb HDD). To partition my disk during ubuntu install I had previously used Patition Magic to set aside enough free space. During install I selected the option for using free space for install.
The only problem I have found yet is that all the options (buttons and menus) in GParted are grayed out, except for "Dismount" and "Information" on context menu. I can get the graphics and data (seem to be OK) of my partitions but no options after selecting any partition.
I can acces my my NTFS partitions and my Linux partition with Nautilus. I can even open and copy fles from the NTFS partitions to my ubuntu desktop
/dev/hda1 ntfs 34.2Gb boot
/dev/hda2 extended 68.58Gb lba
/dev/hda5 ntfs 67.74
/dev/hda6 linux-swap 855Mb
/dev/hda3 ext3 9.50 Gb
After install I updated all the packets as indicated by my system and I even used Synaptic to add ntfprogs, to no avail.
I wonder if the forum will be able to provide some insight
Thanks in advance
