I have an external Western Digital Hard drive with two HFS partitions with journaling disabled.When I connect it to a computer running Linux (Debian or Ubuntu), frequently both partitions are mounted read-only. In the past, mounting them on my Macbook and executing the command to disable the journaling often worked (even though it would tell me that journaling was already disabled) but I would love to have a solution which works every time.
Anybody know how to make an ext3 or 4 partition start up at boot with only the owner and its group having read and write access permissions.I don't want 'others' to have folder access. This is what i have done. / etc/fstab:/dev/sdb5/media/Data ext4 owner 1 2 The folder starts on the boot since it has been allocated a folder as u can see. Next i changed the the ownership and the group ownership of the folder:chown johnny:johnny /media/DataThe problem is that other users can few my partition since 'others' have read access. How do i change that to zero access?
I made a modification to the /etc/fstab using Ubuntu 10.04 and now it wont boot correctly. I can get the cli but when I enter /etc/fstab and make an edit it says" changing permission of /etc/fstab: read only file system" This is what I get when the system boots:
so if I choose manual I get to the cli and whenever I attempt to edit the file I get the above error. I used another machine and attempted to mount the drive but I get the same error I added notaime option to my fstab by accident so if I choose manual I get to the cli and whenever I attempt to edit the file I get the above error. I used another machine and attempted to mount the drive but I get the same error. I tried
and I get
How can I mount the partition so that I can edit it?
I've been using Ubuntu 10.10 for just under a week. Recently, a partition called 'Data' has disappeared, and all my music and documents along with it. The folder is not to be seen in Places or on my desktop. My only way of finding it is to go to terminal. But when I try to open it there I get an error saying I don't have permission to read it. In Puppy Linux and SliTaz I can easily find the partition and read it. What should I do to bring it back in Ubuntu?
I want to mount my all windows partition in my "Red Hat Linux", please help me to mount all my windows partition in linux.And please tell if i mount windows partition is it harmful for windows/partition?
I have installed a new hard drive and partitioned some space that I am wanting to use for keeping my Music files on. I have entered a line into the /etc/fstab file that I believe mounts the partition properly, but it is giving root owner ship of the partition. Is there a better way of doing this? perhaps mounting the drive some where else and using a hard link? the line I have so far in my fstab is
/dev/sdb1 /home/me/Music ext4 defaults,user 0 2
But this is still sowing the drive on my desktop, it also replaces the the name of Music in my places with the fact that it is a drive of such a size.
I downloaded an raw SD card image that has two partitions. It caused some file system errors when I tried to dd it directly into an SD card. I am not sure if the card is defective or the image. Is there a way to examine this image without writing it to a physical card? Like trying to mount the partitions separately or checking the tables?
i decided to try archlinux in my pc a while ago so i installed it... after three months i started to miss slackware so i decided to reinstall it but i wanted to save my /home partition so when i installed slackware i left my /home partition from arch hoping that i could just mount it on slackware...but now when i try to mount that /home partition this is what i get:
bash-3.1# mount /dev/sda4 mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda4,missing codepage or helper program,or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so code....
So i dont really know what is going on here but i hope somebody could help me because i really NEED to get the data from that partition.
oh and by the way i installed slackware on ext4 partitions and the /home partition from arch is ext3 so i dont know if that's maybe the problem o_O?
I have an ecryptfs partition on a usb drive, system runs Debian squeezeWhat I'd like to have is that when I connect the drive it will be auto. mounted and I'lleither have to enter the passphrase or it will already be in the keyring (even better).It seems ecryptfs can auto-mount a directory but I want to auto-mount an entire encryptd partition. Is this possible?.Also, can I have another encrypted directory, say ~/Private, at the same time or can ecryptfs handle only one at a time?
can't add the options uid=500,gid=500 to the ext2 volume because it says "bad option" I have 1 question. If you have a volume listed in /etc/fstab, and you try to mount it with different options than the ones listed in fstab, will it mount with the new options, or the fstab options?(e.x. if I try to mount /dev/sda6 with: mount-o auto,user,exec,rw,async. Will it mount with async or sync?)
I have a problem when trying mounting, checking my ext3 partition. Is a external HD with my "portable" Linux system. Suddenly started to fail, when I try to boot it, the GRUB can't locate the config file, and show me the command line. I boot from my internal HD and try to mount it and have this messages.

1.- What exactly is in this first sectors (ext3 metadata?)
2.- Is there some way to fix this quickly, maybe with some "sectors relocation", Or re-create the first logical sectors.
3.- If not, who could i make a full backup (something like dd copy), of all the partition.
4.- How fix it?, even with a long prosses, i don't know, maybe backup the file structure (with forensic tools) and copy into a new (and re-located) partition. This is my last option because the forensic tools sometime can't recover all files and sometimes only parts, or very old files.
I have a linux formatted partition. I'm trying to open that partition inside windows 7. And shrink it so that I can have more space. But all the options except delete and help are grayed out. What do I do?
Tried ext2explore but it seems it can only perform a copy of the whole partition.
Every time I mount one partition manually as read write it works fine for a couple of minutes before reverting to read only. It still appears as read-write when I list the mounted directories but won't let me write to it. I have tried unmounting and remounting it, but after a few minutes it always ends up as read-only again.
$ mount /dev/sda3 on /scratch type ext3 (rw) $ mkdir /scratch/file
The default partition manager which OpenSUSE DVD 11.4 uses (Expert Partitioner) is not creating any logic partition with / mount because another system is already using it, is there anyway to fix this?
I had installed ubuntu 11.04 on my system along with windows vista. After a few days, i decided to remove ubuntu so i just logged into windows and formatted the ubuntu partition using the windows partitioner, then extended my main c: drive to span the whole disk so that i was left with a single partition with only windows vista on it.Later when trying to restart my system couldn't log back into windows.I kept getting a prompt sayinggrub rescue>After googling around a bit i shrinked and created another partition the disk again and installed ubuntu on it again.still. =/GRUB doesn't show any windows entry.I noticed something strange though that when i tried viewing my partitions using parted i didnt see any filesystem type listed besides my windows partition (/dev/sda3). I doubt that is why GRUB does not show any windows entry.Also i manually tried to boot into windows from the grub prompt using commands...root(hd0,3)chainloader +1bootbut it says 'invalid signature'Did i somehow corrupted my windows partition during resizing and installing/un-installing? Plus i also booted with the windows installation dvd and when i typed bootmgr /fixbootit said something like no valid filesystem found.
I'm pretty new to Linux. Though I've used it for a little bit, I barely know any shell commands. I recently migrated from Mint to Fedora. Installation went fine and I thought I was doing great until I tried to copy something onto one of my ntfs partitions (I got them automounted through changing fstab). Now I can't change the permissions with sudo chmod... it says I can, but nothing changes. And, while the folders are listed as allowing rw for the user group I set up, I can't actually change anything. I'm guessing I've done something wrong with my fstab file.
My fstab file is:
I should probably note that I'm using NVIDIA fake RAID 0, which is why my device locations are all /dev/mapper/nvidia_fcficeibp#
The command I have tried to change permissions is:
i used to have ubuntu 9.i decided to move to sabayon so i used the live cd to install it ,resize the ubuntu partition and use the remaining space for sabayon.while the resizing procedure i got an error(i dont have a copy of the error log file but i know it has something to do with an anaconda process).i aborted the installation and the result was an filesystem that couldnt be mounted.when i try to mount the hdd i get this:
Code: Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so and this is what i get from fsck: Code: $ sudo fsck -f /dev/sdb1 code....
I am newer to Slackware but not to Linux. I am having the hardest time trying to get my CDROM to mount for me so that I can play audio cd;s and the like. I can see that the system knows that my CDROM drive is there and that it works because I installed Slackware 13 from my CDROM drive as /dev/hdc. Now when I put in a cd nothing happens? I have googled away and searched this forum quite a bit before posting this but I have tried almost everything I can think of and what others have mentioned. I have screenshots to show you what I mean. When I try to run the command: mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom I get it as mounting as read only and it says can't read superblock? Now that is fro my slave IDE CDROM on top as hdd. I have tried before to mount it as /dev/hdc but to no avail. I know both CD drives work just fine because I used them to install the system. I am going to put the screenshots below so maybe someone can help me! Also I can eject the top CD drive with the command code...
