Here is what I have found out so far. When she enters the command
chown -R dianne:dianne /home/dianne/.kde4
she gets the following error message.
chown:cannot access '/home/dianne/.kd4': No such file or directory
Not a good sign! I also asked he to do a df command and here is the results
[root@localhost ~] #df
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda5 20G 7.0G 12G 38% /
/dev/sda1 5.0G 150M 4.6G 4% /boot
/dev/sdb1 147G 54G 86G 39% /data
That is all and good, but the /home partition is not there. It should of been on sda and around 120 gigabyte in size. I have sent her an email asking for a
fdisk -l /dev/sda
I have not yet received that reply.
Does anyone have suggestions how to fine the /home directory??
Thanks for the help
Why is there a 5 GB boot partition? It would help if she entered the command properly and included an e in her .kd4.
Because it was setup with a 5gig boot partition.. Even spelled wrong there is still no home partition there should be.... 120 gigs in size. It was set up with a separate home partition.
The sda drive was setup with a swap, /boot, / and /home partitions
The sdb drive only had a /data partition
So the question still remains, where is the /home partition and the some 120 gig that was partitioned for it's use?
Here is the information I asked her for for fdisk -l /dev/sda

Can someone please tell me what I am seeing here so I can make some sense of it all. I am assuming that it is the
