Debian :: Partimage Does Not Support Ext4 - Alternative?

Aug 27, 2010

I thought I'll be smart, and installed squeeze on ext4 partitions ( boot-ext2, root-ext4, home-ext4 and swap). With my Lenny (ext3), I use partimage to backup the / partition, and rsync to backup my /home files. Now, I found out that partimage does not work with ext4. Are there other GNU packages I can use to backup my / partition?

General :: Grub 97 And Add Ext4 Support?

Jan 6, 2010

I have slackware 13 ext4 partition. Debian lenny ext3 partition. and a /data ext3 partition Debian contains the grub boot loader i've been using to boot slackware. I'm going to wipe debian and I installed grub to /data with knoppix cd. Grub on debian booted into slackware just fine, but the grub I installed (onto data partition) with knoppix live cd does not find the slackware kernel. I am using the exact same menu.lst. apparently debian grub had ext4 support, but knoppix does not. both are grub .97. Is there a way to add ext4 support?

Ubuntu :: CLI Partition Manager With Ext4 Support?

Apr 2, 2010

I recently bought a new HDD for my server and I now need to create two differently sized ext4 partitions. I tried GNU parted, but it can't create ext4 partitions so I did some googling but couldn't find any CLI partition managers with ext4 support

Btw, the server is running Ubuntu 9.10 x64 Server.

Ubuntu :: Alternative/Minimal On EeePC 1101HA - No Atl1c Network Support

Aug 16, 2010

The alternative and minimal installation images do not contain drivers for my EeePC 1101HA's network devices. The module required for the ethernet is atl1c (Atheron AR8132), but the discs contain only atl1 and atl1e. What can I do to install it?

I dug the .ko file out of the live CD (which works fine) and tried to modprobe it in the alternative installer's environment (minimal won't let me mount any storage devices), but modprobe wouldn't accept it as a module. So I gather there's a missing step somewhere.

Also, the alternative image is choking on an error, "Debootstrap error: Failed to determine the codename for the release." So I can't even install from a mounted ISO and figure out how to install the driver on the otherwise working system.

How do I make this work? I'd really like to build an Ubuntu system from the ground up instead of relying on the ready-made desktop live CD.

General :: Upgrading Redhat To Support Ext4 For Files Over 2TB In Size

Sep 27, 2010

We are currently running Redhat 5.4 64Bit (Build 2.6.18-164.e15) however having issues with tar files that are greater than 2TB in size.

We have been told that upgrading the kernel to support the ext4 file system (supported in version 5.5?) and mounting the current 10TB nas share as an ext 4 file system may solve our over 2TB file size issues. Are their limitations within the ext3 file system that cause issues to files greater than 2TB and if this is the case Do we have to update the kernel (complete rebuild), or can we load a package on the redhat box to support the ext 4 file system Where do we get the upgrade/package. I have logged onto the redhat site and can not find kernel updates but can find the full installation packages. We are not connected directly to the internet and do not have access to the update repository

OpenSUSE Install :: After Kernel Update No Ext4 Support At Boot Time

Apr 20, 2010

telling me if this behavior of my openSuSE 11.2 installation is normal? I use a 64-Bit openSuSE 11.2 with kernel 2.6.31.x with root partition ext4. After adding and updating from repository kernel:/HEAD/etc to 2.6.34-rc4 I can not boot anymore due to a lack of module ext4. I thought today ext4 is stable and fix built-in in the actual kernel releases, isn't it? The error message at boot time: FATAL: Module ext4 not found. Which is right because in /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/kernel/ there is NO 'fs' subfolder. Isn't the kernel:/HEAD/ repository the official update path to get a newer major kernel? (besides openSuSE's Updates for security reasons) Do you know how I can fix it without self-compiling?

Ubuntu Networking :: When Install Into A Clean Ext4 Partition, Have Zero Internet Support?

Jul 26, 2011

I have tried countless things and am at a complete loss. I'm pretty new to Ubuntu and Linux in general, just so everyone knows. Here's my problem: I can run the 10.10 install disc as a Live CD and have perfectly functional internet. However, when I install into a clean ext4 partition, I have zero internet support. I have Googled the heck out of this problem, too.I've tried tinkering with IPv6 settings, I've tried scouring my BIOS for anything relating to "Wake-on-LAN" (It's enabled in Windows 7, by the way, which is what I dual-boot into), and several other network-related ideas I've read online. None have had any effectEDIT: Additional details: ethernet worked like a champ in 10.04, and in 10.10 when I did an upgrade instead of a clean install. I had this same ethernet problem in a clean 11.04 install (which also worked in Live CD form), too, which is why I tried 10.04 to begin with.

Debian :: EXFAT Support Vs NTFS Support ?

Aug 25, 2010

I'm looking to dual-boot Windows 7 and Debian 6 upon its release on my sister's laptop. I want to share a partition between the two of them so that /home points to this directory and the Windows equivalent also points to it (C:Users).

Anyway, I've heard good and bad things about the NTFSMount driver (I think it's NTFS-3G now) and the NTFSprogs project and so I am not so certain what I should believe. I do know that NTFS has relatively high overhead, though I do not recall the source of this assertion, so I am considering the use of EXFAT. An open source EXFAT project is hosted on Google Code at [url] and it utilizes the kernel module FUSE.

I'm quite certain that I've got everything covered on the Windows side -- that is, I know that both NTFS and EXFAT will be suitable filesystems for my required usage.

My issue is that I'm curious which will have superior performance and stability in Debian. I planned on building the package from source and mounting the device in my FSTAB but I have also found a PPA for Ubuntu on Launchpad at [url] that I could borrow the debian/rules from and make a .deb package from.

What do you guys think? Should I go at it with the EXFAT or NTFS partitioning? Is NTFS-3G actually fairly supported at this point? Or perhaps should I consider some alternate method?

I have also considered that the only files she will be sharing are those of music, videos, and pictures so it could be better to just link /home/xxxx/Pictures (Music and Videos, too) to the new partition instead of all of /home.

Fedora :: Errors Installing PartImage 0.6.9 On 14

Jan 28, 2011

On a previous thread, I explained how I installed Fedora 14 from the live image disk onto a HP 2140 netbook only to find I was missing the development files. Stoat helped me use the more complete install DVD from Fedora 14 to install the development tools (rather than doing a complete reinstall -- which I would do if it made this work).

Unfortunately, I'm still unable to make PartImage 0.6.9 install. When I try, configure says that the bzip2 library (libbz2) is not found or too old. Apparently, this is because it can't get it to respond to BX2_bzopen from within the library. I think because it can't find the library. Inside the config.log file it seems to indicate that from an -lbz2 not found. Now I'm guessing that there is some trick to this, maybe some way of setting the library path to include the location of this and possibly other libraries under Fedora 14. I've checked the library's location and it seems to be in /lib as far as I can tell and bz2 does work, so it's somewhere. Of course it's possible since PartImage is pre-version 1 but doesn't have much if any activity on its forum that something has changed position in Fedora and the install isn't looking for it in the right place.

I've seen one blurb in the PartImage files that indicates that maybe using env to set environment variables on entrance to configure might work, but I'm not sure what variable to set or how to make it find the bz2 library. Note that I've been a UNIX user and administrator in the past, but that was in the System 7 days so that's rusty and I have no prior experience with LINUX of any kind.

General :: Partimage With Ubuntu Can't Quite Get To Work?

Feb 28, 2010

Been trying for a few days now to get a workable image from partimage. I've been using Physocats tutorial as my basis, however there is one item that seem odd: after the fdisk -l, a mkdir /backup is created; then the mount of hda5 where the backup will reside. To me, this seems backwards.

In any respect, what I'm trying to accomplish is to backup my main drive (sda1) to another (sdc1). After coming from Ghost and Windows, I've forgotten much of my limited command line knowledge. This mounting,unmount, fstab and mtab has me ready to go back to pen and paper!!

Software :: Partimage-doc Downloaded/ Can't Find?

Sep 9, 2010

Used the ubuntu software center to download partimage-doc, then tried to find it with the search function using the word part. Three files showed up in one section but not partimage-doc. How do I find it? I want to read about the program to decide whether to download it.

I'm new to LQ and wonder what is the best way to find this post after the suggested 24 hour wait? Been using linux for most of this year and am enjoying it very much. Will dump windows completely as soon as it is possible to watch Netflix movies and read Barnes an Nobel books with linux.

Debian :: Finding The Alternative To Jigdo?

Jun 18, 2011

I am wondering if there's a better alternative than jigdo. I was trying to help out and choose what is recommended but this jigdo crap is ridiculous. Didn't work for me and the primitive bad design of it is a waste of time.

Maybe Debian should consider joining today's technology. There are supposed to be hybrid isos you can download and even Ubuntu is finally joining the camps doing that.But, there's nothing on Debian web pages mentioning 'hybrid isos.' Who uses jigdo anyway?There's no way of entering the url or any instructions that make it intuitive. Get rid of the jigdo and do something different....

Debian Multimedia :: Alternative To Nomachine NX?

Feb 4, 2011

Over the past few months Nomachine's NX Server has deteriorated to the point where it's unusable, as detailed in this thread for one machine. On my other machine it works, but I cannot do apt-get dist-upgrades as it spews forth messages like, "insserv: Starting nxsensor depends on stop-bootlogd and therefore on system facility `$all' which can not be true!".So I give up on them.

Debian :: Access Files On Alternative Computer?

Mar 9, 2010

I have a desktop installed with Debian Squeeze and ALL my files are stored there, and is always on. Everyone has an account on this computer.

Each of us have laptops (Debian/openSUSE with KDE4) and sometimes need to use the files that is stored on the desktop. Currently, we are transferring the required files via usb drives.

All the computers are connected to a wireless router that connects us to the internet.

So, to enable all laptops can access the desktop's file, should I

- install smb to all the computers or

- install ssh for the task.

- or are there any better way.

Need to ensure,

- security as ALL my personal info is on the desktop

- easy to use and prefer gui than console as I have young kids using the system.

Debian :: From LVM/XFS/encrypted To Ext4/unencrypted?

Sep 5, 2010

The system disk on my lenny 64b system is using LVM, encryptions and XFS (/boot is ext2). I'm looking forward to turning it into old-style, ext4 unencrypted partitions (and thinking about btrfs in the future. Despite having used Debian for many years now, I haven't really ever tried a true migration and all of the guides out there are concerned with turning an unecrypted to encrypted. My basic idea was to use the installer and set up a minimal new system on a fresh disk, then migrate all of my stuff from the old system.

I have some doubts though

1- is this the easiest way to get the task done?

2- what do I have to copy from the current system /etc? and most importantly, what I should *not* copy?

3- how do I replicate the current package configuration on the new system without falling into a dependency hell?

Debian :: Looking At Ext4 Partitions From Ms-windows

Dec 8, 2010

I recently downloaded and installed and updated Debian squeeze. Its a dual-boot machine and the migration process is going to take its own time. In the interim, I want to look at the ext4 partitions through windows. I know/knew about ext2ifs but somehow I'm not able to view the ext4 partitions even though they show up in Control Panel as ext2ifs drives.

If you guys know of any other softwares which can do the same work or better please lemme know. I also tried something called ext2explore but that one crashes all the time around. Lastly, does somebody know which is the best way to be in the know of Squeeze development and the milestones within it.

Debian :: Handling Virtualisation And Finding Program(s) To Alternative To VMware?

Mar 13, 2009

I currently run a home sever using windows server 2008. On it I'm using VMware to run 2 virtual machines (currently running CentOS (which is Red Hat based) as web and mail servers. It's not a big setup, we only host our personal websites and a couple for some friends. Although server 2008 handles resouces much better than server 2003, it's still running windows, which as we know is far more inferior to a Linux server. I'm trying to convince the husband to let me run everything on Debian, but he wants to run it on Red Hat (which okay, isn't bad but our household is devided. We have long running arguments because he likes his boxes Red Hat based running KDE, and I like my Debian distros running Gnome!)

The host server is running on a standard pc box, it's got a 2.5 gigahertz dual core processor and 3 gig of ram, almost one TB storage. (don't ask why I'm including this drastically important info!) I want to run the entire network on Debian. So that would be the main host running Debian and the two virtual machines also. The host itself would need to run as a file and app server for our home network and the two vertuals as web and mail servers. (we run about 12 domains three of which are under heavy usage with Mysql databases, so we run two servers so we can dedicate more rescources to the virtual server that sucks the most juice.) I was wondering how Debian handles virtualisation and what program(s) would be a good alternative to VMware?
