XP MySQL DB on NTFS dual boot Ubuntu using same DB
Posted by: Cecil Carpenter

I have a dual boot system using XP SP2 with MySQL 5.0.67 and Ubuntu 8.10 with MySQL 5.0.67. My databases are on an NTFS partition created in XP and use InnoDB. I would like to use the same databases, temp space, and log files no matter which OS I am using. If I can do this, the changes I make while in one OS will be there in the other OS when I boot to it. Additionally, my logs will reflect the true state of the data.

My NTFS partition mount point in Ubuntu is /media/Data, and I have tried to point to my databases, temp file, and log files by specifying /media/Data/... for the appropriate path and/or file for each in my.cnf on Ubuntu. However, MySQL in Ubuntu cannot access the InnoDB files.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
