General :: How To Keep HDD Mounted Through Restart

Feb 2, 2010

The Fat32 master HDD in my Intrepid Ibex 8.04 Ubuntu PC is mounted and stays so.

I installed a second (slave) ntfs HDD into the Ubuntu PC. Each time I turn it on, the drive needs to be mounted.

What (exact steps) do I need to do so that the slave drive stays mounted after the PC is turned off.

The goal: When the PC is turned on, I'd like the slave HDD already mounted and ready to use.

OpenSUSE Install :: Fake-RADI0 Detected By Yast But Not Mounted After Restart

Apr 20, 2011

I have fake(bios) raid0 with Windows XP and third non-raid hd which I wanted use to install linux to (as I read about problems with installing grub into raid0). During installation Yast had correctly detected raids and all windows partitions (basically its divided into two raids with 2 partitions of 1st and 3 on 2nd) and even proposed mounting them at /windows/c, /windows/d and so on. Now I have OpenSuse 11.4 installed, grub at /boot on sdc but to log to system I need to use installation disc (otherwise Windows starts up). What I wanted to do is follow this tutorial to add grub to Windows bootloader: Boot Multiboot openSUSE Windows (2000, XP, Vista - any mix) with Windows bootloader. Problem is after reboot partitions are not mounted (dirs exists but nothing there) so I cannot copy boot code to windows. I read that fake raid may need special drivers but when i start Yast->system->partitions it again shows everything correctly!

fragment from partitions section in Yast (I translated/removed non-important entries as I have non-English system so it may vary from what is actually in Eng version):

Device: /dev/md125p1
Size: 48.83 GB

Ubuntu Installation :: System Automatically Tried To Restart But On The Restart Got The 'terminal' View

Apr 30, 2011

I have just finished the upgrade of the latest version and I'm at the point of my system restating.

My system automatically tried to restart but on the restart I got the 'terminal' view. It stopped when asking for my username (it never normally asks for this before the grub menu) and then password. I didn't get any further than that.

I now have on my screen (still in the terminal view before the grub menu)

"name@name-desktop:...$ "

I'm on my phone now so I don't actually have the symbol for before the dollar sign but your know what it is. The raised S on a 90 degree angle.

Ubuntu :: How To Restart Network Adapter (not Service) Without Restart?

Mar 13, 2010

I have a suspend problem in my laptop. Sometimes, when resuming from suspend, the network adapter is down (that is, the network does not work and the light of the network adapter is off). Restarting the network service doesn't work, because I think that the system forgot about the hardware, and probably the driver should be reloaded.Does anyone knows how to do that?(ps. /etc/init.d/networking restart does not work, because the hardware driver is not being recognized anymore).

Debian Multimedia :: GDM Goes To Tty On Restart / Doesn't Restart

Apr 5, 2010

Whenever I choose "Restart" from the GDM screen, GDM appears to shutdown, and the first TTY is displayed with a login prompt at the bottom (assuming I haven't used that TTY). I am by no estimation a patient individual, but I waited a solid minute or two for something to happen, but nothing ever did. I end up logging in as root on that TTY and running "shutdown -r now" to get the job done. This is a shared computer, and ideally any user should be able to perform shutdown options graphically from GDM.The only mentioned workaround doesn't apply to me as I am using the nvidia driver, not intel.

General :: /dev/shm Not Mounted /dev Busy

Mar 2, 2010

Recently I was trying out a boot disk I had made, and basically, I switched it off several times due to it booting the completely wrong kernel. Now, I'm getting to the stage "Checking File systems" and then comes up [Failed]. I then get a message saying Reboot required, and that it will reboot in 15 seconds, just a few seconds before it reboots I get "/dev/shm not mounted, /dev busy" or something similar.

I've booted up my sysresccd, ran "fsck.ext4 -fcv /dev/sda2" to force a check and scan for any bad blocks, it came up clean, then I rebooted and got the same error, so I copied the kernel and over to /boot to make sure there's no corruption and reinstalled initscripts and util-linux-ng, rebooted, same error.Tried different kernels, I've checked fstab and menu.lst, no problems there, so I still don't get why I still get the same problem.

General :: NFS FS Mounted With 'noac' Is Too Slow?

Sep 27, 2010

This may be to specific of a scenario, but it is real.- I use an NFS mounted FS as a destination for my backups from multiple clients. - If the FS is mounted with 'noac' which in effect disables write caching, backup performance is horrible 40kb/sec.- If I remove this mount option, backup performance is fine 12mb/sec. However, because of write caching, my cpu io wait time increases (up to 40%) and performancen the entire host suffers unacceptably.My initial impression/solution is to find a way to enabling write caching e.g. do not specify 'noac' and limit OS write cache size

General :: NFS Mounted System Size?

Jan 13, 2010

I have an NFS server running an older version of AIX that exports two disk partitions. Let's say /1 and /2I also have an NFS client running Fedora 9.I am able to NFS mount /1 and /2 from NFS server under /mnt/1 and /mnt/2 on the client.If I do a df command on the aix server,I see that /1 is 2Gb total and 1.7Gb is usedand /2 is 2Gb total and 1.4Gb is usedI see the same if I do a df command on the NFS client (Linux)Now, the confusing part is here: in the GUI of Fedora, if I go under /mnt and right click on /1 and check folder properties, it tells me that there is ~ 54 000 files (which i assume is the correct number) for a total of 5.3Gb! And for /2, properties indicate 1.2Gb. Where do these extra 3.6 Gb come from on /1...? and even the smaller difference for /2 confuses me (but this might be just the way different systems round off large numbers)?

General :: 2nd HDD Is Not Mounted After Ubuntu Installation?

Apr 20, 2010

I recently formatted my hard drive and installed Ubuntu and I have the following problem: My laptop has to inbuilt hard drives, one which I use for the operating system and one which I use for storage. Up until 3 days ago, I had Windows XP and Ubuntu 8.04 installed on one of the hard drives, but decided to switch fully to Ubuntu 9 because Windows was giving me far too many issues. So I downloaded the ISO, burned it on CD and then installed. I formatted (as far as I could tell) only one drive but the other one has disappeared from view ever since. I asked a more Linux savvy friend of mine for help and he only got as far as determining that the 2nd HDD is still detected but not mounted. And then he referred me here.

General :: Mounted Drives On Kde Desktop

General :: One Of LVM-based Partition Cannot Be Mounted

Jul 6, 2010

I'm using LVM-based partitioning. I can not mount one partition. Here is some information I can provide.


This incident happened after I try to encrypt this partition and then an error message appears. If not mistaken, it contains an error number (I forget) and a warning which reads that can not remove the LABEL on the devices.

General :: One Of My LVM Partitions Is Not Mounted/does Not Shows Up

May 26, 2011

Created partitions, some of them LVM, in a server, say A. Did the same for another server, B, but created one more LVM partition.

Installed RHEL in A, and some other applications. Made dump files for each partition of A and restored all of them them in B. No error in that process, except B wouldn't boot. Did chroot /mnt/sysimage and grub-install /dev/sda--still no good. B came to a halt with GRUB> dispalyed. <tried many things many times.. searching Googles..but w/o luck) Gave up, and restored the bootloader part using OS CD -- I say restored because now B boots ok and I can see application that I had installed in A. So far so good.

Problem: that extra LVM partition is missing! I did not knowingly overwrite it, so where did it go? Somebody is keeping it from being displayed!

Is it the grub.conf that tells the OS what to mount and what not to? If yes, problem is , grub.conf is missing in B. In A, it is in /boot/grub/. df -kh shows other partions (some of them LVM) just fine.. what is going on?

I tracked a file called menu.lst in a strange place, in /usr/share/doc/grub-0.97.. but I didn't see any entry that loads partitions.

General :: Windows - Ubuntu: Filesystem Could Not Be Mounted?

Feb 26, 2010

I run Windows Vista and Ubuntu 9.10 dual boot. Today while booting windows, it informed me that there was something wrong with my hard disk and it would perform a check, and made some fixes.

Only when I wanted to boot into ubuntu again did I realise that the disk check had corrupted my linux partition. Ubuntu's load screen shows up, but just before the login screen it says that the filesystem could not be mounted.

Is there a way I can fix this? And how do I prevent windows from doing the same in the future?

General :: Setting ACL For A Temporarily Mounted Directory?

Sep 8, 2011

I wanted to set ACL for a directory. For that it is important that the device should be mounted as acl on that directory.

But I do not want to add the acl mount in /etc/fstab. So I am tempoararily mounting the device to some temporary directory as acl and setting ACL and then unmounting it. Then, I'm mounting it to the original directory.

The code is below:

mkdir -p $tmp


The group is being changed, but ACL is not set for the directory.

General :: Fsck And Manually Mounted Filesystems?

Nov 12, 2010

I want the filesystem of my external drive to be checked periodically after a numer of mounts. I put 2 in the sixth colums of fstab for this partition

and I use the tune2fs to set the maximum mount count to 32.
tune2fs -c 32 /dev/sdb

now the mount count is 34 and the date of the last check is not recent, so apparently the auto fsck has not been performed. Probably because this partition is not mounted at start-up but I usually mount it manually.

General :: Mounted Partition Reverts To Read Only?

Feb 1, 2011

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)

General :: Installing Mounted .iso Files Of PuppyLinux

Jul 13, 2010

I've tried googling for an answer to my probably extremely easy question, but since I'm a complete beginner I just do not understand whatever I find.Same goes for the whole linux wiki. After many frustrations with Windows I've been trying unsuccessfully to get any version of Linux to try out. However, I always get stuck at the same point: downloading the version works fine, but then getting it to work! Then I get frustrated with Linux for being too complex for the quite computer savvy in Windows, but not a programmer, person. And I returned to Windows. Repeat every 2 months.

So now I am here, please do not start talking to me as if I understand words like kernel - that's where I get stuck.What have I done:

- working in Win7 (illegal version, since I have a netbook and legal downloads are not available in the NL yet)
- found and downloaded the 2 puppylinux files named lupu-500 and lupu_devx_500
- used Virtual Clonedrive to mount both files; looks like I have drive F: being recognized as a dvd-rom drive and drive G: named BD-rom drive.
- I double click either one to open and I get: "Windows can't access this disk, etc." for F: or for G: "Please insert a disk, etc"

I know this is a long post, but please help me or you're losing me to Microsoft again!

General :: Node Mounted From Appserver - Permission In NFS

Mar 2, 2010

I have a Node mounted from my Appserver (Solaris) to DBserver (Solaris), the reason why I Mount is that My Oracle writes file using UTIL_File in Dbserver only, so now I done the Mount and I can create file using VI in the Mounted point. But My UTIL_file is not able to create a file, the reason might be that Oracle writes only as ORA user and my Appserver has no such user, for that I have given the permission 777 for that particular folder, but no use, so I wonder do I need additional permission for this.
