Fedora :: Unable To Mount WD Smartware / Resolve This?

Feb 11, 2011


Every once in a while I get this error when I plug in my external hard drive. I'm a bit worried I might suffer some kind of data loss. I'm trying to get some more information about this. I have been using this hard drive with Windows 7 previously so it is most likely NTFS I think.

Hardware :: Removal Of WD SmartWare?

Jun 18, 2010

So tonight I bought a WD "My Passport" portable HD.Plug it in and KDE says there are two devices...One is the "My Passport" drive, the other one is a CD-ROM called "WD SmartWare" ... WTF?A bit of Googling led me to a Windows/Mac downloads page for a tool which hides, but doesn't remove this unwanted feature.Anyone had any experience with this? want to remove it. It has to go. I've no need for it, and it's taking up half a gig. What a joke.Edit: Some specifics:The virtual CD-ROM is showing up as /dev/sr2, while the main partition shows up as /dev/sdc1.I've tried mounting sr2 with the 'rw' option, but mount reports that this can't be done. fdisk tells me that there are no spare sectors on sdc, and that there are no partitions at all on sr2. What's going on? How do I fix this? In case you can't tell, this is p___ing me off.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Unable To Login As Root Using GUI / Resolve This?

Jan 24, 2010

I have installed Fedora 10 on VmWare. I created another user besides root. I am able to login to that user using GNome login and i can switch to root using "su" command and perform the additional tasks.

Now, for one lab assignment, i need to login as root using GUI. But whenever i am trying to do, I am unable to do that. Is there some additional things that i have to do to login as root from GUI?

Fedora Installation :: F12 Kernel Seems Unable To Use Installed Hd / Resolve It?

Jan 21, 2010

I am trying to install Fedora12 on a usb hard-drive, the first problem I encountered was that the hard-drive would not boot stating "kernel panic: unable to create root device", this is just using the standard fedora 12 install and mostly clicking next (although I add my vista to the grub and tell grub to install to /dev/sdc which is the location of my usb hdd).

I have also tried livecdtousb (wont boot in stick and wont recognize removable hd as removable)

I have tried setting up disc encryption and installing with no LVM.

The drive has this same problem with ubuntu 9.10 however ubuntu 8.10 installs perfectly and I am guessing earlier versions of fedora will too. The problem is that I would like the kernel features of Fedora 12 (mainly modesetting) without this issue.

I have played about with grub and quite like disabling LVM and using the uuid of the drive to select the root partition, my boot partition has 500mb, I have a 2gb swap space 50gb ext4 root partition & 27gb fat32 partition code...

Fedora :: Unable To Mount After Update To F12

Nov 23, 2009

I've just updated to f12 from f11 and I can no longer mount 4 of my hard drives. The hard drives used to be in a raid array on a highpoint raid card, I removed this partitioned and formatted the hard drives and have been using them for about the past year without a problem. I am using a Asus P5E-VM motherboard. All hard drives are running ext4. The only thing I've really tried is noprobing the effected hard drives to no success.

p.s. I don't want to repartition/format these as they have some data on which I'd prefer not to loose.

# uname -r
# mount /dev/sdb1
mount: special device /dev/sdb1 does not exist
/dev/sdc: TYPE="highpoint_raid_member"

Red Hat / Fedora :: Unable To Mount Using Vmware?

Jan 25, 2010

shall explain my problem step by step! so that you all can understand!

1. Out of 120gb hardisk, i created an 100mb in the first cylinder of the harddisk and installed the "symantec boot magic" for dual boot option after switching on the system.

2. Next 70gb is for windows and installed the same.

3. Rest were for "Linux" !! In which i created on 100mb for "/boot" loader files, then one 1gb for "swap" area and the rest of the memory for "/" mounting point.

4. After all, i installed the "VMWARE" in windows, and while selecting the mount of linux, i selected the respective linux portion, and did the other settings.

5. Once done with this, i powered on the machine in vmware, but it was saying "BTMAGIC" not able to find, install again..

6. Cant we not mount the linux via "vmware" which is installed in windows, as i had used "symantec boot magic" for mounting windows/linux??

I'm trying to do a fresh Fedora 14 install from usb live stick. On installation got to partition program and since I want my old /home partition I pointed the partitions as they're supposed to be and apart from /home marked all partitions to be formatted to ext4. After the format or in the end of it came up a prompt I couldn't past. The following link shows a pic of that prompt:

Ubuntu Networking :: Mount NFS - Failed To Resolve Server (Name Not Known)

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 with all the updates. I'm in an NFS/NIS networked environment. My mounts eventually work, but mountall fails with this message in /var/log/boot.log:

General :: Optical Disks Won't Mount After Install FC8 / Resolve This?

Mar 19, 2009

Finally got FC8 installed on new machine, and now it won't mount CDs/DVDs - didn't change anything in BIOS, CD/DVD drive is only thing on the IDE controller (HD is SATA) so is it likely a driver issue? FC8 seemed to have correct (or at least working) drivers for LAN, audio, SATA, etc.

Fedora :: Unable To Mount LVM Through Normal Boot

Mar 6, 2010

Everything was working great with my FC12 box. I think the Fedora Gods must be punishing me as I had recently downloaded an image for another distro, but was only trying to install it to usb and play with it on another computer!

Then I tried to boot and I got an error message:


mount: you must specify the filesystem type
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
mount: you must specify the filesystem type


Can't mount root filesystem

Boot has failed, sleeping forever. I obviously don't understand the boot process well enough to fix this problem, so I'll describe what happens in more detail. (Feel free to correct my terminology so I can communicate in a more concise manner next time!)

1) Bootloader comes up fine and I'm able to select my kernel. (This problem affects all kernels)

2) Then as usual a whole bunch of text goes flying across the screen identifying hardware.

3) During this hardware identification, at the point where all my disks are being identified sd 1, sd 2, sd 6... I get the error shortly/immediately after this.

I cant tell for certain if its immediate because so many mount messages are spewed and I am not sure how to 1) pause the screen or 2) scroll the screen or 3) output this information to a file. But it does sit long enough on the disk identification which is right before the mount errors. I was able to look at a previous dmesg and noticed that dracut comes right after the disk identification, so I think the mount errors are being generated in dracut. (Now whether dracut is the problem or not is another issue) I am able to boot using a rescue usb and mount my LVM manually and then browse the root filesystem, so at least my data seems to be safe!

my /etc/fstab:


UUID=7acf1074-64bb-4a73-9558-f9657f712756 /boot ext4 defaults 1 2
/dev/mapper/vg_willowtree-lv_swap swap swap defaults 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Mount Windows Shares

Mar 2, 2010

I am unable to mount Windows shares on Fedora 12. From Nautilus, I can navigate to the shares, but when I attempt to open one I get a dialog "Password required for share ... on ..." asking for username (prepopulated with my username), domain (prepopulated with MYGROUP) and password. I have the same username on the Windows box, but when I enter the password and click Connect, the dialog just pops up again. I'm not sure what "domain" is, tried with my Windows workgroup name, no good. If I blank out either username or domain, the Connect button is disabled.

I tried using the mount command:mount -t cifs // /tmp/mnt -o username=adrian,password=...,iocharset=utf8,file_m ode=0777,dir_mode=0777
That did work once, but now gives the useful error message:mount error(5): Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
I can run Windows instead on the client machine, and that gives me access to the shares, no problem.

I have libsmbclient-3.4.5-55.fc12.i686, but that was installed a month ago. I don't see any more recent changes to anything relating to the samba client. I've never had to enter a password to access Windows shares. Actually, it looks like the problem may be on the Windows side, although as far as I know, nothing has changed there. Using smbclient with debuglevel set high, I see failures with this error:SPNEGO login failed: NT_STATUS_REQUEST_NOT_ACCEPTED
Every now and again, I can connect to one or more shares, but after a few attempts, I can't connect to any more. Tried rebooting the Windows box, but that's had no effect. Oh, and "smbclient -L" shows domain as the host name of the windows box, but anonymous login (smbclient -L -N) shows domain as the workgroup name.

Fedora Networking :: Unable To Mount Windows Server Folder

Apr 29, 2009

I use F10 at home and while away from work on my laptop. Recently I could get the VPN sorted out ( I can now connect to the vpn (ppp0) server at work from home or anywhere else). I am trying to mount a windows folder that is on the work server on my F10 box at home through the VPN connection that is first established.What I know about the windws server


When I try this

sudo mount -t cifs //pxxxx/home/abcd /mnt/dir/ -o username=abcd,password=xxxx

I get this error

mount error: could not resolve address for pxxxx: Name or service not known
No ip address specified and hostname not found

I think the VPN connection is established successfully. I have a ppp0 connection under ifconfig with an IP address after vpn connection is established.In windows I just map the network drive (\pxxxxhome) username=abcd, password=xxxx and mount the folder as "abcd on pxxxxhome"
