I want all my external drives mounted when I start OS.I don't want to do it for a specific external drive. I want my external drives mounted by default.o you have an idea? Does linux have such a configuration I can change?
How to mount multiple external HDD's. I'd like to link or mount the music, torrents, and general files from several external hard drives and apply permissions (in some cases I only want the mount or link to be read only).
My setup: - Seagate Dockstar running Debian squeeze (it's headless so I don't have a gui running) - Two external HDD's with one partition on each (250GB and 400GB)
What I'd like to accomplish: 1. Mount the external HDD's to /media/HDDs as read/write (this is already working using udev and autofs and it's available in samba) 2. I'd like the MUSIC directories on both external HDD's to show up under the same mount point. In other words I want the MUSIC folders (from both HDD's) to appear as one large library of music. And I only want this to be readonly. It will be used as the library for mpd and/or squeezebox. 3. Mount a directory used to download torrents to. I'll probably pick on HDD as the target for torrent dowloads. But let me know if you have any other ideas regarding this.
Since I have the first one done, how would I accomplish 2 & 3?
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my machine as dual boot using WUBI but on a seperate partition to Windows. Loving it so far, but i cannot get any external drives to mount - i've tried pen drives, camera memory cards and hard drives but nothing comes up.
I have just tried restarting with a pen drive plugged in, and it finally showed something in the computer folder - "memory stick drive" is shown (and my internal CD drive, which i'm not sure was there before.), but i still can't access it and when I try to unmount it gives me the message
Error detaching: helper exited with exit code 1: Detaching device /dev/sdc USB device: /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-1) SYNCHRONIZE CACHE: FAILED: No such file or directory (Continuing despite SYNCHRONIZE CACHE failure.) STOP UNIT: FAILED: No such file or directory
i would like to have all my ntfs drives mount @ start up here is the command im currently useing sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/D -o forcei have made the folders D E F etc now i know that the command for starting restarting and stoping samba changed in 10.04 so did something change with mounting ntfs drives
I've been trying to unsuccessfully auto-mount my drives when starting up. I've made a script that sets me to the root using "sudo -s" and then mounts the drives. The commands to mount the drives work properly when entered into the command line, but when I try running them from an executable, they don't work. What might I be missing?
I have a problem that i have tried to solve for a couple of days.server with some internal disks. Those disks are for the core-system and some file server related stuff.Beside the server i got two external LaCie boxes that contains 4x1tb disks each. The disks inside the boxes are RAID5, so the system sees every box as one whole "disk".Now to the problem. I just can�t get those "two" RAID cofigurations two be auto mounted at boot. I have tried to put them in /etc/fstab with a whole bunch of different options but nothing works. The system sees them but don't auto mount them, and i can manually mount them without any problem at all. I have tried to "google" the problem but can't find any similar
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Zotac nettop. When I boot up normally, all my external USB drives are recognized and mounted properly in /media.
But when I boot up without Gnome (i.e. there's no monitor attached so Gnome doesn't start) they don't mount right: I see directories for them inside /media but normal users don't have access, and root only sees an empty directory.
Last night there was a rather large thunderstorm, and my computer was on at the time. The power went out while my computer was on, and now it won't boot up. After the GRUB screen, a white message at the bottom of the normal loading screen says somthing along the lines of "a partition listed in /etc/fstab cannot be mounted /dev/disk/by-uuid/6835blahblahblah". I chose recovery mode from the grub menu, which gave me a similar message.
One or more mounts listed in /etc/fstab cannot yet be mounted: (ESC for recovery shell) /home waiting for /dev/disk/by-uuid/8bl I've googled around a fair bit, but people who got the same message were mainly those upgrading to Karmic, so a different problem. I think my problem was the fact that my computer was turned off possibly while writing and definitely without being unmounted.
So far I have tried changing /etc/fstab to refer to /etc/sda5 instead of UUID=68blahblah, but that came up with the same error. I have looked inside the /dev/disk/by-uuid and the disk that is trying to be mounted is there (so it's not a problem with that).
Just installed my first ever linux distro in my life and sad that i did not come here before. Anyways i have a WD Green 1TB External HDD. I have Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx Installed and i want it to mount my HDD as soon as my PC starts up.Quick Q: How much time does it take for any USB device to get recognized on ubuntu. Takes me more than 2 minutes compared to a few seconds on my windows i had before (same machine)
I have two machines, a laptop and a desktop, both running Lucid. each works fine, but... I can't seem to mount the external drives attached to either machine over the network. I can share folders from the internal drives fine but when I try to access an external drive from either machine I get "unable to Mount volume". Is it possible to mount the external drives across the network? If so, How?
I am struggling with getting an sshfs mount mounted on system boot. I have a script that mounts the sshfs for "userA". When userA runs the script all is well - user A can access the remote filesystem, root user can't see it as expected. The basic command is: sshfs userA@remote host:/home/userA /home/userA/mountdir -p 21212 -o password_stdin < passwordfile. I can prepend the sshfs command in the script with su - userA -c and when I run this script logged in as root all is well, userA has access and all is well. If I then put this script in /etc/init.d and reference it properly in the rc. directories the mount doesn't happen. If I prepend the sshfs command with sudo, same thing. Logged in as root I can run the script and UserA has access. Run the script in /etc/init.d during startup and the mount doesn't happen. Echoing text to a log file shows that the script is being executed but no mount happens.
How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.
This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).
This question is an extension of previous posts in relation to my removable drives. I have an external usb/ide drives and cowon iAduio7 music player. The former is always connected and latter occasionally. The first drive to be recognized gets allocated /dev/sdc1 and /dev/hdd respectively. Until ten days ago I would simply mount them manually after each boot. Recently I added them to my fstab file. It's fine only for this error message on boot.
Code: /dev/sdc1 unexpected inconsistency. fsck died with exit status 4 failed (code 4) Control-D to continue
I found the following on the net Code: If a device is not being mounted during boot, it may be b/c the driver for that device has not been loaded yet at the time that /etc/fstab is read (and thus the device is not active yet and doesn't get mounted). If you want to make sure it gets mounted during boot, you may need to take a look at the boot sequence for your distro and make changes as needed. Another thing you could try is adding a "mount" command of your own to one of your boot scripts. Most distros provide a file with a name like "rc.local" which gets executed late in the boot process and can be used to add your own custom commands to execute during boot. Firstly I want to know which script do you edit and does that mean I have to re-edit the fstab after creating the script.?
Here is my fstab: Code: [sudo] password for siawacsh: # /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/sdd /home/siawacsh/cowon vfat defaults /dev/sdc1 /home/siawacsh/myhome ext3 defaults 0 3 /dev/sdb2 / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1 /dev/sdb1 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0 siawacsh@debian:~$ Remember sdc1 is the external drive, and sdd the music player.
I have attached the removable drives to directories mhyome and cowon.
I am building a home server that will host a multitude of files; from mp3s to ebooks to FEA software and files. I don't know if RAID is the right thing for me. This server will have all the files that I have accumulated over the years and if the drive fails than I will be S.O.L. I have seen discussions where someone has RAID 1 setup but they don't have their drives internally (to the case), they bought 2 separate external hard drives with eSata to minimize an electrical failure to the drives. (I guess this is a good idea)I have also read about having one drive then using a second to rsync data every week. I planned on purchasing 2 enterprise hard drives of 500 MB to 1 GB but I don't have any experience with how I should handle my data
i am a new user to linux, i installed debian on dual boot with windows 7but now i am unable to access the ntfs drives used by windows originally from the debian OSi am wondering what could be the problem and how can i solve it
I'm running KDE in Jessie and also have Gnome installed. When I connect a usb drive it gets mounted at /media/username/disklabel. I would like to have it mounted at /media/disklabel which is how it worked in Wheezy. How can I make that change?
I suspect this is not new but I just can't find where it was treated. Maybe someone can give me a good lead.I just want to prevent certain users from accessing CD/DVD drives and all external drives. They should be able to mount their home directories and move around within the OS but they shouldn't be able to move data away from the PC. Any Clues?
I've just made the switch from Ubuntu to Debian Squeeze and am having trouble connecting external media (be it a USB stick or an ext HD). The error I am getting when I connect anything via usb is the following:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error.
Sometimes when I plug in a USB flash drive, it is mounted to /dev/usb0 instead of /dev/drivename. This poses a problem for me because I have applications that depend on files I keep on flash drives, and having to frequently change the file paths is difficult. I haven't been able to find anything on this topic with a cursory search on Google or through the Debian reference. Heck, I don't even know what /dev/usb0 is (though I would like to learn, in the interest of being less of a noob). This is happening on a Squeeze system running Gnome, so I believe nautilus is what's responsible for auto-mounting my flash drives.
Beyond that, I don't know what other information I should provide; if you need to know something else, ask me (and perhaps tell me how to access that information). Someone on IRC suggested that I didn't have my drives set to mount in /dev/, but I have no idea how I would go about fixing that. If there's a configuration file that deals with this sort of thing, chances are I haven't touched it since installing this system. Debian installer sees usb drive as cd drive, so it adds it in fstab, but with wrong file system options (udf,iso9660) which is not the one your flash drive uses.
mounting any usb thumb drives. The result is the same whether it is automounted or mounted via the CLI. The drives all have root:root file permissions and cannot be changed to my normal user "ramack". There doesn't appear to be any errors and it is limited to only this Acer Aspireone Netbook running i386 Testing. I don't have anything in my fstab in regards to mounting usb drives.
I have a debian machine with an external harddrive. I have a windows machine on the same network from which I can read the files from the debian drive, but I cant write to it. At some point in time (several months ago?) I could.
currently, I have this line in my /etc/fstab: /dev/sdb1 /media/MUSIC/ vfat user,uid=1000,gid=1000,rw,umask=000 0 0
and i've tried a hundred different mount commands (but not as many as i've tried fstab lines) but generally have been using this at start up: sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/MUSIC/ (i am under the impression that i should not have to use 'sudo' when doing this, since the fstab line includes 'user' but if i dont, the command fails)
no matter what I've tried, the permissions come out as owned by root: drwxr-xr-x 905 root root 163840 2010-10-17 17:45 Music attempting (as root) to change ownership of the directory also does not work: chown: changing ownership of `/media/MUSIC/': Operation not permitted (because its a FAT file system, i think)
