Debian :: Qemu - Windows 7 From Partition - Error ""Ramdisk Device Creation Failed Due To Insufficient Memory"

Sep 8, 2011

I'd like to learn it. So I installed lenny & grub2, after that win7, reconfigured grub2, upgraded to squeeze. All is fine, but I cant start working in Debian as I can work only in Windows. So I decided to use qemu to emulate win7 booting. I have sda1, sda2 for squeeze; sda3 and sda4 for win7. If I try "qemu /dev/sda3" I get disk read error. If I try "qemu /dev/sda" I have grub 2 boot screen and when continue booting win7 I get "Ramdisk device creation failed due to insufficient memory" (as screen on [UR:]). I tried to use m -1024 parameter and got screen with "Windows load files" and reboot to grub2 screen/

Fedora Servers :: Libvir: QEMU Error : Out Of Memory?

Jun 11, 2009

Has anyone seen this error in libvirtd?libvir: QEMU error : out of memoryWhatever it is, I'm pretty sure that's what's keeping my virt-manager from working. There's 12GB of DDR3 on this box, so I really really hope that it's not actually a memory problem. This here is a brand-new whitebox I build just for virtualization on F11. Can anyone here help me make it work?

Edit: This is a 64-bit install. All 12GB are accessible by the OS.

Ubuntu Installation :: The Ext4 File System Creation In Partition Failed?

Feb 11, 2011

I have a Dell Mini 9 netbook. The SSD took a dump, so I ordered a Super Talent 16gb replacement. I put it in yesterday, tried to install 10.10 and constantly get errors. The first error, which I haven't had since, was [ERROR 30] Read-only File System. The install obviously failed. Wondering if perhaps the file got messed up in translation, I redownloaded 10.10, reformatted the flash drive (sandisk cruizer 4gb), put 10.10 back on via the program on the Ubuntu site. No luck, but no longer the [error 30]. Tried again using Unetbootin, no luck. Rinse repeat a few times, no errors just a working cursor spinning and spinning and spinning and spinning and.. you get it.

Tried to put WinXP on it just because I was that frustrated, no luck.

Now I'm back to Ubuntu (because let's face it, who wants to deal with Windows, christ they make it so complicated). I'm currently using 10.04 because I was hoping (praying) it might just be a 10.10 thing.

No such luck, now it goes to step 7/7, starts, and 5% of the way thry "creating ext4 file system" it says "the ext4 file system creation in partition #1 (0,0,0)(sda) failed." I have checked the SSD in the Disk Utility, SMART tests are clean. I have gone to terminal and run fdisk and had a smarter person than me look at the copypasta, no errors, I have deleted all existing partitions in gparted and started fresh. I have tried the auto partitioning, I have tried manual, I am going insane. Literally insane. My preschooler thinks I've leaped off the deep end.

Could it be my flash drive? Could the SSD be defective despite the tests coming back clean? What do I need to type into terminal? Is there a way to entirely entirely entirely wipe the SSD to make it fresh-out-the-box clean? I will happily provide whatever you need if it means I can get my husband off my back about this stupid netbook with its stupid tiny keyboard.

Ubuntu Installation :: Locked Out Of Windows Partition With Grub - Error: No Such Device: 2e3857fb3857c08f

Apr 5, 2011

I have two partitions on my HDD. A Windows XP (hd0,2) and an Ubuntu 9.10 (hd0,1).I have been using the Windows mainly and ran a program that changes the HDD's serial number. Now when I boot up and Grub loads, I try to access the Windows partition and get the following error:

Error: No Such Device: 2e3857fb3857c08f

I am still able to boot the Ubuntu partition but can not seem to get grub to point to the Windows partition any more. This is very frustrating as I really need to get back into that partition soon.

Fedora :: Ln Command For Link Creation To Folder On Windows Partition

Jan 16, 2010

I have a question about the ln command for link creation. I have both Windows and Linux partitions on my system. While I'm working on linux, sometimes I need to access the data stored on my windows partition. Yet, the access is provided through /media directory and I often, I have to click on several folders in order to access windows "My Documents" folder. So, in order to avoid this, I decided to create a link to "My Documents" folder directly from my $HOME directory.

$ mkdir /home/dariyoosh/MyDocuments
$ ln -fs /media/disk/Users/dariyoosh/Documents/MyDocuments/* ./MyDocuments

The link was created without any problem and now I have a direct access to that folder just by a click. Yet, there is a problem. If I update any file of the windows MyDocuments folder within this linking directory, the file is actually updated on the windows partition, which is of course what I want to do. But If I decide to create a new file on the windows "MyDocuments" folder by using this linking folder, that is, /home/dariyoosh/MyDocuments, the file is put actually on the linux partition instead of the windows MyDocuments folder. So, having created a directory linking to another directory, is there any way to proceed so that any file operation, in particular, creation, affects directly the linked directory?

Fedora :: /dev/shm - 224 Mbyte Ramdisk That Is Consuming 224 Mbytes Of System Memory Whether Or Not Use It

Dec 5, 2009

I just noticed this in my "df" output:


There's an entry in /etc/fstab which mounts this automatically. If I interpret that correctly, that's a 224 mbyte ramdisk that is consuming 224 mbytes of system memory whether or not I use it. Is that correct? If so, will anything break if I unmount it and delete it from /etc/fstab? Do programs typically depend on it? I'd like to reclaim the system memory (low DRAM machine) for other uses.

Ubuntu :: Memory Mapping Failed. Error: 1?

May 26, 2011

So, I was working with Ubuntu 9.10 and I wrote a C program which was working just fine. Then, I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 and tried to run this same program again. However, I get the following error: Code: Memory Mapping failed. Error: 1 Part of the code has the following: Code: volatile ulong *memory;

int fd = open("/dev/mem", O_RDWR | O_SYNC);
if (fd < 0) {
printf("Could not open memory.

Does anyone have an idea what the problem could be? I do not know if there would be any significant change between Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.10 that could be generating me this problem.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Cannot Write To Ramdisk - No Space Left On Device?

Jul 7, 2011

I am trying to write to a Ramdisk because I suffer from terrible IO speeds on my VPS. It uses openVZ and I run a Centos 5 distro.

So i created my ramdisk with '/bin/mount -t tmpfs -o size=1G,nr_inodes=10k,mode=0775,noatime,nodiratime tmpfs /tmp'

but whenever I try and copy files to it, it just spams me with 'no space left on device even though there is!

Here is the output of df:

OpenSUSE Install :: Error ""Creating Device Modes With Udev 2.0436224] [drm: I915_diver_load]*ERROR*Detected Broken BIOS With 262140/2644kb Of Video Memory Stolen"

Aug 18, 2010

I tried to install OpenSuse 11.3 on my brand new pc, which already had Windows 7 proffessional in it, and I went step by step through the installation without changing anything. It didn't work. I tried for a second time and this error message kept popping up: "Creating device modes with udev 2.0436224] [drm: i915_diver_load]*ERROR*Detected broken BIOS with 262140/2644kb of video memory stolen. 2.0436224] [drm: i915_diver_load]*ERROR*Disabling GEM(try reducing stolen memory or updating the BIOS to fix)"

And then a lot of letters and numbers wich make no sense to me. Now the only way I can initiate OpenSuse is with the OSuse boot dvd and on failsafe mode.

Server :: Increasing Size Of Extended Partition To Allow Creation Of New Partition

May 18, 2010

I've got a server that needs more space. To achieve this we added space (by extending the VMware disk attached to it).Normally this isn't an issue, because we just add an new partition and LVM it from there, but this host predates our deployment of LVM everywhere.

Our current theory is that the unallocated sectors can not be assigned because they aren't part of the extended partition, and thus ... we go in a circle.So what i believe the way forward is to extend sda4 so that i can then create an sda10 inside of it. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this? I was thinking gparted may do the trick ... but being a server i'm in runlevel3, with no X...

Ubuntu :: Finish Creating Raid1 Ramdisk/hdd Partition?

Mar 8, 2011

After some hours of googling, I've managed to increase the size of the default ramdisks (/dev/ram0-16) to 1 GiB each, I raided them together with mdadm to try it out, then created a filesyste, mounted it etc etc. No problems. The problem comes when I used gparted to move my windows partition over and in the unallocated space (1 GiB), I created an unformatted partition (/dev/sda2)Now when I try to create the raid array I get the following:

:~$ sudo mdadm --create /dev/md0 -l 1 -n 2 /dev/ram0 /dev/sda2
mdadm: Cannot open /dev/sda2: Device or resource busy

Ubuntu :: Error: Device-mapper: Reload Ioctl Failed: Invalid Argument

Jun 13, 2010

I'm having some difficulities with truecrypt and cannot figure out what's wrong since this is my first attempt to create hidden encrypted partition. I'm using ubuntu 9.10 64b with latest 6.3a truecrypt. After using truecrypt gui (just command truecrypt) I've tried: create volume-->create volumne within a partition/drive-->hidden trucrypt volume --> select some /dev/sdX by my choice --> select aes & sha512 --> password --> and format it.

when formating finished message "wrong ss, swith or wrong superblock of /dev/loop0" appeared. I've got no idea what could I do with it neither know whats program trying to do! Ok formating's done, then if you're trying to mount that partition then I would expect prompt for password, but that did not happen ...

EDIT: sudo mount /dev/loop0 /media/tmp/ also complaint about wrong superblock, but that does not ring any bell since i've got no idea what /dev/loop0 is or is for...

EDIT2: I've tried another approach also:

sudo truecrypt -t -c
sudo truecrypt -t /dev/sda3 --filesystem=none

but the first command finished creating 100G drive in 1 sec (nonsense) and latter one prints:

Error: device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument

Fedora :: QEMU: Booting From ISO Image - Boot Failed: Could Not Read From CDROM (code 0004)

May 3, 2011

I'm running Fedora x86_64. I need to setup a virtual machine to do some work on ARM platform. Thus, I've installed QEMU.


qemu --version
QEMU emulator version 0.13.0 (qemu-kvm-0.13.0), Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Fabrice Bellard

Then, I have dowloaded an ISO image of Debian 6.0 armel.Following instructions on official wiki, I have first created an empty disk image,


qemu-img create -f qcow debian-armel.img 650M

then I have attempted to boot from ISO image;


qemu -m 512 -hda debian-armel.img -cdrom debian-6.0.1a-armel-CD-1.iso -boot d

Boot process hangs with the message:

Ubuntu :: Windows Partition Failed - How To Recover

Jan 23, 2011

Yesterday, my windows partition (in a dual-boot with windows7/ubuntu) failed, and in trying to fix that partition, I managed to mess up both, including the MBR and what not. I have been desperately trying to recover them, and believe there's a good chance of doing that as I haven't yet written any data since the crash.

On running testdisk, I have the following info about them:
Disk /dev/sda - 250 GB / 232 GiB - CHS 30401 255 63, sector size=512
Disk /dev/sda - 250 GB / 232 GiB - CHS 30401 255 63
Partition Start End Size in sectors
1 P HPFS - NTFS 0 32 33 191 89 26 3072000 [TOSHIBA SYSTEM VOLUME]
2 * HPFS - NTFS 191 89 27 5274 254 63 81668827 [S3A6747D002]
3 P Linux 5275 0 1 29494 254 59 389094296
4 E extended LBA 29494 254 60 30401 254 63 14570959
5 L HPFS - NTFS 29495 0 1 30400 254 54 14554881 [HDDRECOVERY]

I am quite sure that the data I'm interested in recovering is in the partitions found on rows 2 and 3 (which correspond to my old windows drive c:, and my shared data drive, respectively). Currently, I am running off ubuntu that's living on my portable harddrive, and system> Disk Utility shows the internal (messed up) harddrive as one unpartitioned unknown mass of 250gb, with "bad sectors".

Hardware :: SCSI Hard Disk Device Node Creation

Mar 26, 2010

I am developing for a Linux based device for which the HOT PLUG option is deactivated. As part of optimizing the code, we also don't want to create device files for unused devices. We understand that both USB attached and fixec SCSI hard disks would create device files like /dev/sda,/dev/sda1 /dev/sdb, /dev/sdb1 etc. Is this understanding correct?

In the case of USB attached SCSI devices, would driver create this device file entry? How is it created? Can somebody please tell me how it is being created automatically. In case I attach a fixed SCSI hard disk before boot up(and create device file /dev/sda1), would USB SCSI device driver create device files starting from /dev/sdb, automatically.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mounting Encrypted Fs Error : Remove Ioctl Failed: Device Or Resource Busy

Dec 5, 2010

The error message I keep getting during mounting is:-

device-mapper: remove ioctl failed: Device or resource busy

This is from ane external USB HDD I use as a backup device. I've tried formatting it as ext4 ane encrypting it from the command line

# mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdc1
# cryptestup luksFormat /dev/sdc1

which run without errors but an attempt to mount throws up the above error as well as saying - you must specify the file type (tried that) - and fails to mount. I've tried using YaST to format and encrypt it which throws up the same error when I run mount but actually does actually mount the filesystem Googling around has brought up info saying that it's probably a race condition brought on by invalid udev rules. I've got a (mostly) working system and the udev rules documentation leaves more confused than when I started.
