first of all: i am absolutely new in manjaro and…relatively new in Linux at all
So please don’t be too hard to me ;-(
And here comes my problem:
After successful installation I now have the problem that one partition is partially write protected.
Apparently I made a mistake due to my lack of knowledge when partitioning manually during the installation.
The corresponding partition I want to take main storage location for my data (500GB, ext4).
However, I can not save directly on it but only in a folder “basementmedia” (= my username).
How can I make the whole partition writable?
Can it be that it has to do with the fact that I have chosen a wrong mount point? Anyway: I am helpless and need from you an idiot-proof instruction how to proceed…please;-)
The thing is that /run itself is a tmpfs, and that anything mounted to a directory under /run is therefore only an ad hoc solution. Better is to create a static mountpoint for the partition and add it to /etc/fstab.
If the partition contains only files that are owned by yourself, then I would suggest creating the mountpoint ─ as yourself, not with sudo ─ inside your $HOME, e.g. /home/basementmedia/data.
lsblk -o UUID /dev/sda3
… and write down (or copy) the UUID. Then, add a record for it to /etc/fstab…
after having mounted the partition as JulianVickers told me unfortunately the system does not boot anymore. The message “/sys/firmware/efi/efivars: unknown filesystem type ‘efivarfs’” is shown.
Or maybe it has to do with having changed the kernel to a realtime kernel?
Ah, it was the realtime kernel,
Changing back to the Kernel 5.9.16-1 has solved the problem.
But i want to use a realtime kernel (because i want to make high end audio production) which reccomends usind rt-kernels. In my case i tried the 5.9.1_rt19-1 kernel. Yesterday this kernel workes but this morning…no more?
As you provide little information, we don’t know your DE (Desktop Environment) but if you’re on Gnome, use gparted and under KDE use partitionamanager. Under XFCE install one of those 2.
