Debian :: After Upgrading To Squeeze - Can't Mount My HDD Partitions Anymore

Oct 23, 2010

Actually, the /root- filesystem still gets mounted, for all the others I get the following message:

When I type

I get:

But this only happens when using my custom kernel ( When I use the kernel which was automatically installed (2.6.32-5-amd64), the problem doesn't occur.

Is there a kernel option I should have turned on?

I checked the UUID-numbers from the error messages with the output of "blkid" - they match. The rootfs is on sda2 (which gets mounted without error) - so I tried applying the fstab mount options of sda2 to the other partitions - same problem still. what makes the root partition so special? Is it because it's defined by grub.cfg?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount Partitions Anymore - Error Mounting: Mount Exited With Exit Code 1: Helper Failed

Aug 24, 2010

First of all: it's been more than 12 years ago since I worked with Linux, and a lot has changed in the meantime. But I considered it a challenge to install Ubuntu 9.10 and lateron upgraded to 10.04 LTS without any troubles, until now:

Except my main partition ("/") all other partitions fail to mount. All NTFS partitions from my other OS and also 2 other linux ext4 partitions I've made are not accessible anymore. and, what bothers me the most: I deleted those 2 new linux partitions in the meantime because I couldn't access them initially because Root was the owner (Duh! root is standard disabled in Ubuntu, right?). After an attempt to try to automount all partitions following the help guides I got now big grey errors on my splashscreen while booting, telling that an error occured with e.g. /media/Backup because it is missing or it cannot be mounted, with 3 options below: waiting, skipping or using a command prompt to solve this. I always choose Skip for safety.

Now if I want to see the content of all my other partitions I got a popup telling me unable to mount e.g. /media/Downloads and the message included:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Mount NTFS Partitions Anymore

May 5, 2011

I used to be able to mount my external hard drive's ntfs partition by simply clicking on it, but now I can't anymore... I know that the last time I've used it with windoze, I had to force shut the **** thing down 'cause it was frozen real good (pretty unusual right !?!).The thing is, with ubuntu it sees it and mounts it no problem.

Debian :: Getting A Recent Version Of Wine Anymore On Squeeze 64bit

Aug 10, 2011

since lamaresh is not being updated anymore and the wine packages from the official Debian repository are quite old there isn't really much choice for getting a recent version of wine anymore. Since I don't want to use the carbon project or the Mempis repository, as stated here, (at least yet) I have decided to build the package myself. Unfortunately I would like to have a 32bit version but am running a 64bit version of Debian Squeeze. When I run ./configure I get the following message at the end.

Debian :: Upgrading The Squeeze To Wheezy?

Jul 12, 2011

My Squeeze version is extension three and I had it loaded on my Seagate 1 TB SATA drive. Extension three Squeeze is still on the SATA drive. I loaded Wheezy on my 80 GB Western Digital IDE setup up as a master with my Plextor IDE CD/DVD ROM setup as the slave drive.

Squeeze on my version was LXDE and Wheezy on my version is Gnome gdm3. My Squeeze was loaded with Lilo 22.8 and my Wheezy worked with the regular bootloader. I am just wondering if I use Disk Utility to delete the extension three of Squeeze if it will make both versions unusable.

Debian :: Switch To Apt-get After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Apr 29, 2011

I'm running Lenny, and I've always used aptitude. The upgrade instructions on Debian's website say that apt-get is preferred for doing the upgrade to Squeeze, and also says that apt-get now provides equivalent functionality. So is there any reason to continue to use aptitude after upgrading to Squeeze, and if so, will there be any problems caused by having used apt-get for the upgrade? Or will there be problems caused by switching to apt-get after using aptitude before the upgrade?

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Nov 26, 2010

since I'm new to the the forum and this is my first post I'd like to discuss a quite weird issue. Specifically, after upgrading my Debian system to Squeeze a few days ago, sound is completely lost. This means that I cannot hear any sound from anywhere (mp3, streming videos or anything else) except the system bell . I've done a research on the Internet, looking in other forums and discussions but still, nothing works for me. To begin with, I'm running Squeeze in an HP laptop with HDA Intel soundcard and chipset ALC268. When I'm running aplay -l I get this message:

Darkstar:~# aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog]

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound In Squeeze After Upgrading Packages?

Feb 24, 2011

I had a broken URL in my /etc/apt/sources.list file, apparently because the site had some kind of server issue and they had to rebuild the site from the ground up. They must have changed their directory structure, because I began getting 404 Errors when upgrading packages. I eventually fixed the URL last week after it had been broken for three months, then I upgraded and rebooted. After that, sound stopped working, even system sounds. My speakers work, because I plugged them into another machine and they worked. I eventually discovered that the master volume was set to "mute", and so was the master volume in the alsamixer. However, even after changing it to 100% for both, sound still doesn't work. I even made sure to issue a "alsactl -store" command toeep the settings there after a reboot. I removed and reinstalled all the alsa and pulse audio packages, made sure that the emu10k1 driver was installed for my Soundblaster Audigy card, and made sure everything was unmuted. I have also tried a million other things that I've found on Google, but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Debian Hardware :: SANE Not Working After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Sep 6, 2011

My setup is an HP OfficeJet 4315 All-in-one on a Debian box with the clients using XSANE on Windows boxes.

After upgrading to Squeeze, none of the clients could see the scanner.root could see the scanner from the Debian box.non-root users could not see the scanner from the Debian box.

Obviously, something was wrong with the permissions. After a lot of digging, I found that the /dev entry for the 4315 was owned by root.lp with no world write access.

My solution was to add the saned account to the lp group. I figured that was the most security-conscious way to fix it.

The remote clients can now see the scanner, so everyone is happy.

This may not work for every installation, but for all-in-ones, it probably will.

Debian :: Encrypt Partitions On A Usb Stick Using Squeeze?

Oct 19, 2010

I am trying to encrypt partitions on a usb stick using squeeze. I will be installing Arch on that stick, but as I am using Debian as the OS to do the encrypting I thought here was the best place to ask. I've not had any dealings with encryption before so i'm a little lost. It's not working as I would expect basically - here is the error mssge :

spoovy@peony ~ $ sudo cryptsetup -c aes-xts-plain -y -s 512 luksFormat /dev/sdb5
This will overwrite data on /dev/sdb5 irrevocably.
Are you sure? (Type uppercase yes): YES

Debian Installation :: All Partitions Mounted At Boot Time (Squeeze)

Dec 5, 2010

I am using Gnome and Squeeze. I am wondering if I have a problem of understanding, or a problem that I found with Gnome.

My configuration is with a 3 hard disk system.

disk1 (Debian)
disk2 (XP and Fedora)
Disk3 (W7 and a Data partition)

When I boot and log in, all partitions for disk2 and disk3 are mounted read-write. Only by going to command line am I able to unmount the drives with the following sequence

cd /media
umount *
umount *

I should be able to mount and umount a drive by providing or responding to a root password. But I am not given the option to present a password. My request is blocked.

I also do not want to see the drives remounted after a boot. I tried to find out how this was managed, but I was unable to discover the module and it's parameter list that controls or does this task.

Debian :: Openssh-server Auto Configuration Fails When Upgrading Lenny To Squeeze?

Sep 10, 2010

I'm in need of a bit of assistance from you Debian users. I have two servers that I thought were identical installations, both running Debian Lenny. Tonight I started the upgrade to Squeeze on both servers and one of them went smooth. The other one started out good but fails on the postconfiguration of openssh-server. I'm getting the following message:

Setting up openssh-server (1:5.5p1-4) ...
Auto configuration failed
2524:error:0E079065:configuration file routines:DEF_LOAD_BIO:missing equal sign:conf_def.c:366:line 67
invoke-rc.d: initscript ssh, action "restart" failed.


It looks like there's an error in one of the files in openssh-server that prohibits it from installing correctly. However on the other server it all went well.

Debian :: Cannot Mount DVD/CD In Squeeze

I installed Squeeze on an Acer Extensa 4420. My desktop is KDE. The problem is that I cannot mount DVD/CD in my laptop.

Here is my fstab

# Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices

Debian Installation :: Mount HFS During Squeeze Install?

Jun 11, 2011

I am trying to load Debian Squeeze from a net install CD on an old Wallstreet laptop. I am using BootX in OS 9.2. The problem I have is after the install gets to the bootloader section I tell it to continue without a bootloader, then open a shell so I can mount the Mac hard drive and copy the kernel and image file to the correct places. However, the Mac drive does not show up using df. I tried mounting to /dev/hda8 ( I know this is where the Mac HD is supposed to be) but get device not found error. I recall in previous version (etch) installing from full CD I had the option to install hfsutil, but I did not get that option with this netinstall CD. I changed the debconf priority to low hoping I would get more options of software to install but to no avail. Any ideas on how to get the kernel and image file to the Mac hard drive?

Debian :: Mount NTFS Partitions In /etc/fstab?

Jun 29, 2010

Using: Debian Lenny. I want to mount 2 NTFS partitions in my /etc/fstab file, so that I needn't manually mount them when I want to use them. One of the partitions is the primary partition on the same hard disk as my Debian /, /home, and /swap partitions. The other is a 2nd internal hard disk.

a) Should I use ntfs-3g instead of ntfs as the /etc/fstab filesystem? I want to be able to read and write to the partitions as a user and not just as root.

b) I have read on the forum that "mounting NTFS partitions through fstab is not a great idea" - I thought that any dangers of doing so were ancient history. Why would it not be a good idea?

c) Which options should I use?

d) If I use 'user' instead of 'users' so that one specific user (me) can use the partitions, how do I specify which user name? (The man page is annoyingly unclear about this).

Debian :: Mount The Multiple Partitions Of A Pendrive - Flashcard?

Dec 27, 2009

I did this with :


I made two partitions as below


3. Partition Compact Flash

Make two partitions on CF (use linux fdisk or anything else that is able to make linux filesystem)

1. at least 8MB FAT

2. rest ext2 (recommended) or ext3 - at least 50MB

Copy vmlinuz, initrd, linexec and params.txt to FAT partition.
Uncompress rootfs.tar.bz2 to ext2 partition. (command details at ref. [1])

But :

fdisk -l says only one /dev/sdd1

not sdd1a
not sdd1a

How can I mount those 2 created partitions, since they are hidden under /dev/sdd1 ?

Is it a bug of the kernel?

Debian Multimedia :: How To Mount Floppy Disk Using Squeeze/LXDE?

I am trying to configure my test Squeze install on an older PC with LXDE desktop, and I can't seem to find anything which would enable me to mount a floppy.Then I tried to use the konsole as root mount -w /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0

But although this device and this mount point exist, nothing is mounted. I double checked with various floppies which I know have data on them and none of them are being mounted. The umount command would I expect be umount /media/floppy0 /dev/fd0...I tried searching the web and this forum and didn't find anything helpful. Can anyone help?
