OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Mount CD Floppy Or USB Flash Disk

Jul 22, 2010

The system is 11.1 32 bit and used to work ok

All the drives function and mount normally under Parted Magic.

Sometimes a cd will mount after 15 mins or so but if it is ejected it will not remount. after that event the dmesg output is 3 times as long. As it is 35K chrs long it is too long to post!

I have changed hardware and cables with no effect.

I have run the repair option on the install disk. I get a cannot find floppy error

It also reports cups, hal, ntp & postfix as errors but if I select repair it still returns the same next time I run the repair routine.

It also says the bootloader is faulty if I select repair I go into an infinite loop so I exit with skip. Anyway the system boots ok and runs just fine apart from the cd/fdd/usb problem

CentOS 5 :: Using USB Flash Stick As Boot Disk

Mar 20, 2011

I would like to use a USB flash drive as a boot disk. I have 2 hard drives. I will have Windows 7 as Drive 1 and Linux as Drive 2.I would like to not touch Drive 1 at all NO grub or other boot-loader. My old system I used a floppy drive as a boot disk.This worked if floppy was inserted: It booted grub giving me the choice of Windows(drive 1)or Linux(drive 2). I would like to replace the floppy with a USB stick. I have a couple of 64 MB (LOL) flash drives to use.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Installing 5.3 Using Sandisk Flash Disk?

Nov 5, 2009

I have a IEI IBX 530 unit that uses a flash disk for storage. I used a Transcend 32GB flash disk and installed CentOS 5 successfully on the unit. I now wanted to install a second unit, but am using a SanDisk Extreme IV flash disk. The installation completes successfully, but when the system reboots for the first time after the install is complete, I get an error: "Grub Loading Stage 2. Read Error". This error occurs using CentOS 5.3 and even occurred when trying Fedora 9 and 11.

why this is occuring ot how I can resolve it? I used both the 16GB and 8GB Sandisk version, and created partitions as follows:

/boot (100MB)
swap (1GB)
/ (remainder of disk available)

CentOS 5 :: Disk Quota On NFS Mount?

Apr 24, 2010

I am wondering if I can set diskquota on a nfs mount, instead of where the folder actually located.

HOST1 - /dev/sdb1 /home
exports /home to HOST2
HOST2 - HOST1:/home /home
set quota from HOST2 for /home

Is this possible? I have not tried it, I wonder if anyone tried it.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Mount USB Flash Drive In VMWARE Guest

Apr 9, 2010

I'm a NOOB to CentOS and Linux in general. I've been trying to find a way to mount my USB flash drive (FAT32) so I can see my files. I've been told that I need to add a USB controller. My CentOS is running as a VMWARE guest in WS7 loaded on a Vista host. My physical hardware is a Toshiba Satellite notebook. I've been told I have to add a USB controller before I can mount. Can anybody give me some direction with this?

CentOS 5 :: Mount Error: Can't Mount An Encrypted Volume With An Overlaying Ext3 FS

Jun 6, 2010

I created a encrypted volume on top of software raid1. These are my steps:

1. Create logical partition on sda

2. Create logical partition on sdb (same size)

3. Change type to partition to 'fd' for both partitions

4. Check that the both partitions are same size and type fdisk -l /dev/sda && fdisk -l /dev/sdb

5. partprobe

6. Make sure there are no remains from previous RAID installations on /dev/sdb by running: mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sda6 mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdb6

7. mdadm --create /dev/md4 --level=1 --raid-disks=2 /dev/sda6 /dev/sdb6

8. watch cat /proc/mdstat

9. update mdadm.conf mdadm --examine --scan | grep mdx >> /etc/mdadm.conf

10. Load twofish module [root@localhost ~]# modprobe twofish

11. # cryptsetup -y -c twofish-cbc-essiv:sha256 create ftdata /dev/md4 Enter passphrase: Verify passphrase:

12. mkfs.ext3 -b 4096 -R stride=8 /dev/mapper/ftdata

13. mkdir /ftdata

14. Mount the encrypted volume:
mount -O noatime /dev/mapper/ftdata /ftdata

It mounts successfully this first time. When I cd /ftdata, I can see the lost+found dir


So why is it that I can't mount my encrypted volume after the first time? I am giving the correct password when it asks to.

Server :: Booting From USB Flash Disk?

Jan 6, 2011

For various reasons, when I installed our server, I configured it so that it would boot off a USB flash disk. The flash disk mounts as /boot and / mounts on our RAID array.

It all works very well, but I would like to have backup so that if/when the flash disk goes, I can pop in another one.

I have tried to make copies of the flash disk (using both cp and dd), but it doesn't work. When the server starts its bootup sequence, instead of Linux loading, a cursor starts blinking endlessly.

If I put the original flash in, it works fine. If I put the copy in, it doesn't work.

I can't see any difference between the copy and the original. They seem to have the same content. If I do blkid both have the same label and UUID. The label is /boot, and /etc/fstab refers to this

We are running Scientific Linux 5.4.

Fedora :: 14 Not Authorized To Mount USB Flash

Nov 9, 2010

New install of Fedora 14, all updates applied. If a USB flash drive is plugged in, get a Not Authorized message when Nautilus tries to mount the drive. The drive does show up in Places in Nautilus. From a terminal window, if you 'su' to 'root', then:

mkdir /mnt/usb
fdisk -lu
mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb

WILL mount the device, can 'cd' into directories, 'ls' to list files, 'cat' the files -- all OK -- so the device itself is fine. But from a regular user account, it will not mount the drive. Did 'chown' on /mnt/usb and /dev/sdb1 so that the user owns everything. The same 'mount' command as above gives the message "mount: only root can do that". Disabled SELinux as a test -- same result. Searched around but only similar problem was in this thread (buried in the middle): [URL] That's where the sequence above was suggested, which does work as 'root'. Where else would permissions need to be set? And what changed? This worked automatically in previous versions of Fedora

Fedora :: Creating A Bootable USB Flash Disk For DOS (using 12)?

Nov 22, 2009

how to get a working bootable USB boot disk for DOS using Fedora 12. I needed the dos boot disk to flash my motherboard BIOS as it did not support linux for updating the bios. Thought I'd put the steps involved to help other people who wanted to do something similar. The steps outlined here are for a Fedora 12 system. You should be able to extrapolate the minor changes that may be required for other linux distributions. All commands listed below to be typed in on a command prompt, logged in as root. Here goes...

1. Prerequisites:

freedos base cd (http://www.freedos.org/)



1. [URL] for enlightening me on the fact that testdisk could be used instead of install-mbr

2. [URL] upon which this howto is broadly based.

Ubuntu Installation :: Usb Flash Disk Cannot Be Updated?

Feb 16, 2010

I just installed ubuntu 9.10 on a 4GB usb stick given the menu item at the top. I selected 512MB for my own user space. then I rebooted, and started updating it. I am getting almost 200 packages by default now that need to be updated.

alas, ubuntu live update now runs out of space while doing the update. this is not because 4GB is too little, but because too little space seems to be dedicated to the root partition.

what is the recommended way to have an up-to-date 9.10 copy now?

Ubuntu :: Flash Plugin Causes Disk Thrashing?

Mar 28, 2011

Recently I have found myself getting terrible disk thrashing, to the point that my desktop is almost uncontrollable. I have found that killing the plug-in container task (I'm using 64-bit Firefox 4) brings the thrashing to an end. In other words it's a problem to do with Flash.

Hardware :: Use Usb Flash / Pen Drive As Driver Disk?

Jul 14, 2010

I've an HP DL380 G6 server, SAS hot swappable hdds connected with Smart Array P212 raid controller. I've configured RAID5 and installing RHEL 4.4 in the server. But its not detecting the hdds, i m suspecting that the OS doesn't have the driver for raid controller. I've downloaded the driver disk for the above controller from HP's site. The problem is the server does not have any fdd controller integrated on board, is there any way to use usb pendrives as driver disk during linux installation.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Auto Mount Flash Drive?

Apr 15, 2010

My Fedora does not auto detect a flash drive if I get to attach it with the OS already running. I still have to make a reboot and attached the drive right from the start in order for it to be detected/mounted.

Unlike In Mint 7, Ubuntu and XP, it automatically detects the flash drive as soon as it is attached.

make my Fedora detect the flash drive so that I would not have to reboot everytime I would use it.

FWIW here are some outputs:
Code: # /etc/fstab
# Created by anaconda on Thu Feb 4 06:06:47 2010
# Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk'
