Fedora :: How To Access The Drive Information

Nov 22, 2010

I have a VM setup with Fedora r14 installed. I've installed openssh-5.5p1-23.fc14.2 with hopes of setting up an SFTP connection so that I can access my files off site. Actually I want to share some of my files with my mother but using a secure way of doing it.

I've got everything setup and it's working. I've even chrooted / jailed the user accounts so they can only see what they need to. I have an external HDD I've connected formated as FAT32, or so I believe since i can't check it now that it's format is listed as RAW due to me messing with the drive whilst connected to fedora and it fubar'd my format, and now that's another problem that I'm just now finding out as I'm writing this.

So if I manage to get my files back up on the drive, which I should be able to with a util I've used for this problem before, is it possible to access the drive information if I 'mount --bind' the drive, which I did before? Just so you know I can see the folder listing through WinSCP, but when I try to access it, it tells me denied. I've read that linux cant work with FAT drives and isn't able to set perms so I believe the reason why I can't access the contents is because it's set for 700 and besides the owner, which I'm not when I'm accessing them, I can't access the content.

Fedora Installation :: Access Hard Drive From Live USB?

Mar 2, 2009

I've installed F10-live.iso onto a usb key but am having problems with the non-privileged user I created. When I login as kurt, I do not have access to my home directory on the hard drive. I tried [root@localhost home] #chmod kurt kurt (after cd-ing to the correct spot), but still cannot access my files there. I can do so as Live System User, but not as me.

Fedora Hardware :: Access Data On Old Hard Drive ?

Jul 30, 2009

I've got an old EIDE hard drive that used to be used for a dual-boot WinXP and Linux (not sure what version - either RH9 or FC1), and I'd like to pull some data off it. That computer died, and I reformatted the Windows partition, but left the Linux portion alone. My current Linux (FC10 + XP) computer uses a SATA hard drive, and I'd like to get the data from the old drive to the new one. I've connected the hard drive normally, jumpered as a slave drive. Linux now boots normally, but I can't access the older hard drive. I tried the techniques in the following thread: [url] and commented there (with more info), but I thought I would be more likely to get a response by starting a new thread.

Here's a summary of what happened: ran "fdisk -l": the command saw both hard drives ran "tail -f /var/log/messages" and got the following: Jul 30 16:00:44 localhost kernel: EXT3 FS on sdb8, internal journal Jul 30 16:00:44 localhost kernel: EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Jul 30 16:00:44 localhost hald: mounted /dev/sdb8 on behalf of uid 500 sdb8 was a FAT partition I had set up for moving files back and forth between XP and Linux (none of the other partitions were reported). ran "vgscan", which only returned one volume group When I ran FC10's Local Volume Management tool, it sees the hard drive and its partitions, but reports them as "Uninitialized Entities".

Fedora :: Access Another Install On Another Hard Drive On This System?

Nov 4, 2009

This probably isn't the best way to go about this, but I am pretty nooby. I took the hard drive with Ubuntu install and made it the second SATA drive, and then put a new SATA drive in as the first and installed Fedora on it.Now I want to access my files from the Ubuntu drive and put them on the new drive but when I try to access it, I can look at some files but the majority of them (like my music and a lot of my documents) it says that I don't have permission.Is there some way I can get to these files? I tried searching but I couldn't find anything relevant

Fedora :: Seagate USB Drive Not Mounting With User Rw Access?

Jun 25, 2010

by default fedora 13 mounts the drive under /media/uuid, with no read or write access to users other than root. I need to be able to turn the drive on, have it automount so that I can read and write to it without logging in as root every time and dealing with changing permissions on files, etc.

In other distributions, this has worked flawlessly, but I'm not familiar enough with Fedora 13 yet to get it working. I've read the man pages, tried to search, but I can't seem to find a working answer,If I could get this one little inconvenience fixed, I'd be set... loving Fedora so far.

Fedora :: Unable To Access A Usb External Hard Drive

May 27, 2011

Running fedora14 on a dell latitude-d600 laptop and I'm trying to access a 500gb sata external hard drive that is connected via usb. The laptop can see the drive as '500 GB Hard Disk: 524 MB Filesystem' and it's clearly mounted under the '/media' directory. However, when I attempt to read the files on it, I am only able to see the 524mb section of the drive. The external hard drive is an ext3 file system (running fedora13) and I believe it's encrypted.

Fedora :: Automounting Drive With Full Access On Dual Boot System?

Feb 24, 2010

I used to know how to access and rw other linux drives and do the fstab magic. For some reason I've lost my touch. I just want the drive to automount and have full access. I don't need a beginners tutorial on mkdir and fdisk -l. Is there a foolproof way to get my drives to do what I want? I dual boot fedora and ubuntu, but have the same issues on both.

Fedora Hardware :: Experiencing A High Degree Of Hard Drive Access

Mar 9, 2010

I'm using my F11 box primarily for browsing. And I have freakishly low RAM (256). All was good up until recently. Now Im experiencing a lot of HD access with a lot of grinding and HD light flashing at different intervals when going online. I've searched but found no mention of viruses that would do this. I would typically associate this with a lot of downloading, as with software update. However I've disabled this program (since the box was in a stable state for my intended purpose and I did not want to invite new maintenance).

Any ideas what could cause this? It can become so intensive that the mouse is practically disabled and any attempts to close a window take upwards of 15 minutes. I frequently receive the Firefox message that the application has become unresponsive, do I wish to kill the program or wait.

When I try to access it with root, I can access it but I cannot see any files listed.

Ubuntu :: Booting From Usb Drive - Can't Access Internal Drive

May 26, 2011

I am running a hp dv701175nr laptop and am booting ubuntu 11.04 from a usb flash drive. I can not seem to find my internal drive that has windows 7 stored on it. I tried to mount it but it give me this error:

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdb1 is already mounted on /
mount failed

I can't use this operating system if I can't access my windows 7 drive and I really want to use this OS .

EDIT: Okay, so I think I have found my problem, but I don't know how to fix it, there are differences in my mtab and fstab commands, I will post what they say in a second, but I do not know how or what I need to do to change and make the settings right

SUSE :: Unable To Boot Properly - System Is Unable To Read Startup Information From Hard Drive

Jan 19, 2011

I am running the latest suse release downloaded directly from their website. I ran the installation after buring the dvd and everything seemed to be working fine. after the installation i ran updates and used it for a little bit. When i shut it down that night and went to restart it I got an error that stated the OS wasnt there. I then went through the installation and everything and it retained the information from the installation before (web history etc.) but for some reason every time I reboot or shut it down the system is not able to read the startup information from the hard drive and will not come on without me re installing it.

Fedora Security :: Tweaks For Storing Information In Ram?

Nov 19, 2010

I've been looking for a tweak that would allow me to store temp and log files in ram. I've found a few that involved editing the fstab file, but they were either Ubuntu articles or they were over a year old and perhaps didn't apply to Fedora 14.I hear there is also a 'noatime' command that can help speed up processes by telling the kernel not to saved when files are accessed.And what are the advantages and disadvantages of noatime, and writing log/tmp files to ram?
