I bought a usb drive flash drive (pendrive) Kingston 8GB: And i have a problem: In windows XP, the drive is recognized but when i click appears a message: "Insert a disk in drive X: " So, when i plug the same drive in fedora 12, nothing happen.
I have a usb flash drive plugged in to my newly created Ubuntu system. A df command shows this: george@george-laptop:~$ df Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/sdi1 231594420 8825300 211004724 5% / none 1025976 436 1025540 1% /dev none 1030196 664 1029532 1% /dev/shm none 1030196 212 1029984 1% /var/run none 1030196 0 1030196 0% /var/lock none 1030196 0 1030196 0% /lib/init/rw /dev/sdj1 7808768 17152 7791616 1% /media/8G FLASH george@george-laptop:~$ How do I change my directory to the flash drive? CD doesn't work.
Fedora 14 is used throughout the whole problem. The problem started when I wanted to install Fedora 15 DVD by making a bootable USB key. The size of the USB stick is 8 GB. The problem happened when I (following the tutorial) wrote the line [URL]... livecd-iso-to-disk command associated with the path to the ISO DVD and the partition on the USB stick. the USB stick has the device name /dev/sdb , 1 partition sdb1.
I then noticed that it was mentioned to unmount the USB drive before doing this command. so, while the terminal had written in it "Checking" , I pressed CTRL+C to stop the execution and then pressed on the arrow beside the device in the computer window (Which I think that it unmounts the device). The actual problem started here. I then tried to mount the device but couldn't, It said the device was not found. so I removed the drive and inserted it again, the OS didn't automount the USB drive, I tried to manually mount it but it said the device is not found or doesn't exist. then I used fdisk -l, It said that the sdb didn't have a valid partition table. Also the size of the device is wrongly reported. It should be 8 GB but it is reported to be 2 TB?!
I think the wrong partition table made it think that it has a certain number of sectors which isn't real,that made it think that the device is 2 TB large....
I made a persistent install of Ubuntu on a flash drive. I made changes to that installation. The software (Unetboontin) sets this all up. I think it partitions it for you. How do I image that flash drive to another flash drive?
I would like to back up my flash drive in case it gets lost or damaged.the flash drive is bootable with ext2 and a fat partition.the drive is on /dev/sdb1.I think the dd command would back everything up and when restored to a different flash drive everything would boot fine and be as before.I was wondering wow should I use this command to backup and restore or if there is a better option.
I downloaded the iso file from fedora's official site and copied the iso to my pendrive... to be able to install Fedora through pen drive i downloaded Universal-USB-Installer-188.8.131.52 and used it locate the iso file in my pen drive... after Universal-USB-Installer-184.108.40.206 did its job, i booted my pc and proceeded to the installation.. there was a 'install on hard disk option' and chose it... it asked me for a new password, my location etc. but when i chose the install option it prompted me an error saying that i dun have enough space to install fedora... how do i locate my drive during installation , so that i cud install it on my desired drive... it shows me two options, one is the pendrive while the other is "AMD something.... "(dun remember the exact name") whenever i select on the AMd.
Im taking the class now in college once a week. My professor said that we need to install any Linux operating systems so I chose Fedora, but he said we need at least 16GB free of space to install it in our computer, sadly i only have 1GB space left remaining. I told him about it and he told me about installing Fedora in my flash drive that has space of 16GB. I really am interested in this course and want to understand all of this stuff so can anyone tell me the process to install Fedora into flash drive so I can boot it anywhere else other than home? Also since he said I need 16GB to install it don't I got to buy 32GB flash drive at least?
I'm interested in trying out Fedora but would use it on my current Netbook (an ASUS eeePC 1000HE). I currently have Mandriva on it though which I don't want to stop using.Can I install it on a Flash Drive? If so, would it be in a sense a LiveDVD type of installation or could I actually do an install on the Flash Drive to use it as a Hard Drive? If so, what would the minimum flash drive size be?
Also, if I use the Flash Drive as a hard drive would it still have to use the internal hard drive or can all 3 partitions (swap, root, and home), be on the flash drive? Would it be possible to run it on more than one machine since I also have an Acer Aspire One?
After searching the boards, I dug through the udev man pages and rule files looking for a way to modify the default automount options for USB flash drives. Apparently, the options are somewhere else. Is there a simple way to add noatime to the default mount options?
Currently, the flash drive is automounted as follows:
I'm using Fedora 12, beta RC 2 in case that makes a difference.
I downloaded the 32 bit Fedora 14 and burned the image to DVD. I didn't want to try to install it on the HDD because the last time I tried to install a distro that used Grub and not Grub2, the only OS I could get into from the boot screen was that OS that I installed with Grub.
I went ahead with the install in hopes that it would see my 4G flash drive, sdc was present so that is where I installed it. I mounted / in sdc1 and the bootloader in sdc. Everything seemed to install, install finished and said I could reboot. On reboot it tried to boot from the USB but just sat there, it never did boot.
I have a load of Maxell 2GB flash drives which I bought new.
It has a Public Partition and a Secure partition on the flash drive.
gparted and disk utility see it as 2 volumes. I need remove the 2MB secure partition to make the 2GB stick bootable. However since it's showing up as 2 volumes I can't see how to do it. Probably requires totally wiping the flash drive.
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'
Here is a way to prepare a USB flash drive to save your kickstart file to it, and then read the kickstart file from the USB drive during a new Fedora installation.A USB flash drive is recognised by the Linux kernel as just another hard drive.This is how I set up my USB flash drive to use it to store my kickstart file on.You will need a working Linux system to set up the USB drive.
still would like to see some actual LAB DATA - but the info here is satisfactory as a "general rule of thumb". I was wondering if I put files on a USB flash drive & left it sit on the shelf, how long it would be before those files would start to deteriorate? - This would have nothing to do with the read/write cycle as in the "shelf time" it wouldn't be used.
I had to unmount a flash drive in GParted to format it, now I want to mount it again so I can use it, GParted does not get me a "mount" option and it does not automatically mount. How do I mount it so I can use it to make a Fedora Live USB? I am using Fedora 14 KDE BTW...
Code: HP Mini 210 Fedora 15 - latest updates I bought a HP USB Flash Drive v117r 16GB
I bought this 3 months ago and everything worked fine. However, I went to plug it into my computer and nothing came up in the file manager, the Flash drive was not detected.
I have PC running Fedora 15 and I have a iMac. The Flash drive didn't work for any of these. However, I have other Flash drives that I have had for many years and they still work. I have also tried different usb ports.
Once thing that is positive in my /var/log/messages I get the following:

I have installed and reinstalled flash player several times, but nothing works. What happens is anytime I try to play a flash game, the audio lags about 2-3 seconds. When I play a flash video, there is only very, very little lag. This problem also happened while I was running ubuntu.
I have an Intel Core2 Duo system that I want to upgrade from Fedora 12 to Fedora 14. I have downloaded the DVD iso for Fedora 14, however, I do not want to burn a DVD for installation, and would like to be able to perform the upgrade from a USB flash drive. Where can I find information that will explain how to make a bootable flash drive that can install Fedora 14?
Since the last 4 update.. I Been waiting for this to be fix. I can't watch anything without have major problem. I get lest then 3 sec into any video. Then it just jump to were my load point of the video. Almost two week of waiting for this to be fix. Cuz some how my updater form the last 4 Was the reason it went down....
I have never had a problem with flash plugin before. Just recently I decided to try gnash to see if it plays flash videos better then flash plugin (it doesn't). So I updated flash plugin from the 10.0 r32 version to the 10.0 r42 version and went under Tools > Add-ons > Plugins in Firefox and disabled the gnash plugin and re-enabled the flash plugin and now flash does not work any more. I've tryed uninstalling gnash, reinstalling flash plugin, reinstalling Firefox. Flash just will not work. Flash works in Google Chrome or if I run Firefox as root. I have Fedora 12 32bit
I disabled the new version of flash plugin (10.0 r42) and re-enabled the old version (10.0 r32) and now flash works. I dont understand the new version of flash plugin works but only in Google Chrome or if I run Firefox as root?! Also Firefox (as my user) shows both versions of flash plugin 10.0 r32 and 10.0 r42 Firefox as root and Google Chrome only show the new version.
i have tried to install adobe flash player on fedora 14 but wjen i check if it is installed i can't watch any videos on videos.....i have rebooted but nothing happened, also i trtructions and nothing happened neither.finally i tried a command [codesu -c 'yum install nspluginwrapper alsa-plugins-pulseaudio flash-plugin][/code] but it tells me that there it is on the latest version and already installed.......
I've been struggling with Firefox and Flash for a while now and I'm finding that Firefox 4 has pretty well broken. No flash content is working in it at all but it seems pretty difficult to locate to remove and reinstall. I think I installed Firefox 4 from the Mozilla website originally. Most stuff works in Opera but I've been firefox for a long time so reluctant to change. I've searched for forums for similar problems but can't seem to see anything. I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox 3.5 but that's not fixing the issue.
Running the XFCE Live CD version of Fedora15 and installing Flash is not enabling it for Firefox. I have the .rpm file stored on my local drive, navigating to it and running "yum instal flash....." worked perfectly on F15 LXDE. Similar (but use apt get) worked for Ubuntu 10.10 Live also. Checking "aboutlugins" and listed is parole-player.so and IcedTeaPlugin.so nothing else. Browsing to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and the only file contained is the libflashplayer.so Should I not see the two listed above as being installed by Mozilla in there? And why is the flash player from there not being recognised?
