Ubuntu Installation :: System Directories On Separate Partitions - Redo All From Scratch

Feb 23, 2010

I have a netbook with limited storage. 8GB internal and a 16GB SD card. Right now I have Ubuntu installed on the 8GB internal storage with a few directories mounted on the 16GB SD card. (/usr and /usr/local). This has worked out fairly well for me as having the entire installation on just the 8GB drive was too limiting. When I tried this I didn't know how big to make the partitions I was mounting in. These partitions are 7.06GB for the root (on internal storage) 2.8GB for /usr/local and another 2.8GB for /usr (both 2.8GB partitions are on the 16GB SD with the extra space being media storage for me). It seems I didn't make these partitions big enough because I can no longer perform updates. I'd like to redo all of this from scratch. how would you recommend I partition this next time around? Do I need individual partitions for the separate mount points that aren't root? Are those the directories I should be mounting on the SD card?

General :: Multiple Users To Create Directories Over SFTP So The New Directories Keep The Same Permissions?

May 15, 2011

I want to make a webserver with multiple users allowed to login through SFTP to a specific folder, www.Multiple users are added, lets say user1 and user2, and all of them belonging to the www-data group. The www directory has an owner www-data and a group www-data.

I have used chmod -R 775 on the www folder, but after I try to create a folder test through my SFTP server (using Filezilla) the group of the directory created has only r and x permissions, and I am not able to log in with the second user user2 and create a directory within www/test due to a lack of w permission to the group.

I also tried using chmod 2775 on www directory, but without luck. Can somebody explain to me, how can I make it so that a newly created directory inherits the root directory group permissions?

Programming :: Link Objects In Separate Directories Using KDevelop?

Oct 4, 2010

Using: Open SUSE 11.0 64 bit, KDE 3.5.9 (release 49) and KDevelop 3.5.1. Problem: A singleton was created in subproject A, and so an object file is created in subproject A. In subproject B, I want to use that object file. We have not been able to find a way to link that object file created in subproject A with subproject B. Also, the subprojects are in different directories. We created a symbolic link to the ".h" and ".cpp" files in directory A. And the project compiles and links just fine after adding the symbolic link to the header and cpp files in subproject B. My concern is, that two objects of that singleton will be created. The whole idea of making a singleton is so that there is only one instance at a time.

General :: Virtualbox - Can't Create Directories In Virtual Box Shared Folder?

Jul 28, 2011

I'm mounting a shared folder in an arch linux guest on a windows 7 host in Virtual Box. The shared folder's filesystem is ext3 and is mounted in windows 7 with Ext2Fsd. I mount the shared folder at boot with this fstab:

D_DRIVE /home/tony vboxsf rw,gid=1000,uid=1000,auto 0 0

I believe my user in the guest OS has the right uid and gid:

[tony@kiwi ~]$ id uid=1000(tony) gid=1000(tony) groups=1000(tony),1002,(vboxsf)

I can create files and remove them fine, but I can't seem to create directories.

[tony@kiwi ~]$ mkdir foo mkdir: cannot create directory `foo': Protocol error

Its weird because the directory looks like its there, sort of.

General :: Slackware 10 Will Not Let Me Create Partitions

Oct 27, 2010

OK, trying to install Slackware version 10 on the Athlon XP Shuttle PC and been hit back hard at the very first hurdle.In short I can't create a partition in Linux.At all!CD boots up OK. Loading in basic kernal.I try and create a partition using either fdisk or cfdisk.BOTH apps reports that the partition table cannot be written to! Both apps run read only mode.So I am unable to create any partitions in Linux.

I booted up a Windows 98 floppy and checked the partition table.Two x30GB partitions.I deleted both of them in case Linux did not like a Fat32 DOS/XP partition table.Tried again. Same read only messages.Attempt to use 'w' in fdisk reports the partition table cannot be written to.Viewing the partion table returns nothing, no matter how I set it up in DOS/Windows.

Only clue is that to my surprise, the DVD RW drive is the Primary master and the 60GB HD is the secondary master. I must have slipped up installing the drives years ago and Windows didn't care. Would Linux? Other than that, nothing in the BIOS that gives a clue. I turned off ACPI support in case. I also tried the ACPI kernal. No joy there either. But DOS/Windows quite happy to build partitions.Cfdisk states that no partition tables exist even after Windows has just created one.So I am at a loss.Any clues? This is a Shuttle PC so the tech is a bit propritory but nothing that various renderings of Windows have not handled.

OpenSUSE Install :: Maintain Separate Swap Partitions?

Sep 9, 2010

On my triple-boot PC:

SuLinux:~ # fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes


Will the above procedure accomplish this objective, without crippling openSUSE ? The second swap partition has never shown any activity (on SUSE). I understand (from Using shared swap files) that a single swap partition may be shared. Since these areas are relatively small, It is not inconvenient to maintain separate swap partitions.

General :: Cannot Create Logical Partitions Without Errors

Jan 14, 2010

I have run into a Gparted problem that I am not familiar with. I've never seen it before.

I cannot create logical partitions without errors or not at all. I have two choices:

1) not checking 'round to cylinders' - I will get an error* and it will not partition

2) check 'round to cylinders' - it will partition but I will also obtain 4MB of unallocated space (each time)

This applies to Primary partitions, too, I think. At least, #2 will happen.

Imho, this is ridiculous. Why would I retain 4MB of unallocated space? In other words, the two choices above are not choices.

The error message doesn't explain much if anything either. *"Unable to satisfy all constraints on the partition"

General :: Create A RAID Set Up And Merge Partitions?

Aug 7, 2009

I have three hard drives in my computer That I want to make RAID 0. All of them already have partitions and data on them. What I want to know is if I can, without losing data, add the disks to RAID and then merge the partitions? All the partitions are of the same type. Or would it easier/better/possible to do this with LVM? Even if I'd have to shrink partitions and copy data to a new LVM one to get it set up properly, would it be better than RAID 0?

General :: Partitions Don't Appear While Installing Ubuntu 10.04

Apr 27, 2011

My computer is currently running on Windows 7 and I had a spare partition formatted as ntfs. At first I tried to install ubuntu to that partition. Everything was fine, ubuntu recognized my previously installed OS and all partitions. At some point during the installation, however, it is recommended to have another partition formatted as swap.Then I split the partition into two parts and formatted one as swap and one as ext3 using Acronis Disk Director.

Then I restarted my computer to install ubuntu to new partition. This time it did not recognize any of the partitions and said that "there are no operating system on this computer." The whole disk was appearing as one partition.At that time, I quitted installation and go back to Windows 7, it was working properly. I booted using Acronis Disk Director and partitions were in their proper place.I tried formatting back to ntfs and then to swap and ext3 again, nothing changed. (I also tried several other combinations, nothing worked.)

This might be a really silly question, but I installed Ubuntu yesterday (which is awesome) but I can't seem to locate any of the other drives that I had hooked up.

Ubuntu :: How To Create New/Separate User

May 5, 2010

I want to try out KDE on Lucid, but I don't want to install KDE on top of ubuntu, because I will end up with two sets of applications and software that is gnome specific to load in the KDE environment.SOOOOO, I want to create a separate user that is only KDE and a user(my current one) that is only gnome. Different names, different environments and applications.

Also, if it is possible, I will need instructions to remove a user as well, so in the future I decide which one I like better, I can delete the other user account.

Ubuntu :: Create A Launcher That's Doing Two Separate Commands

I'm trying to create a launcher that's doing two separate commands. Here's currently what I have.


rm ~/Games/Nintendo DS/NO$Zoomer.ini; wine ~/Games/Nintendo DS/NO$Zoomer.exe

Now, the reason I have to delete the .ini file, is for some reason the file gets corrupted every time (it's a well known problem, from what I've read.) and I can't start up the program until it's removed. Now, it works fine in Terminal, but when I run it through my Launcher icon, it does nothing.

Software :: Create A DVD With A Separate Chapter For Each .avi File?

I use DeVeDe a lot, and it works great for general conversion and DVD authoring. I don't know, however, how to create a DVD such that each of the original .avi files will be their own chapters. In other words, I have about six or seven .avi files (episodes of a season of a television show) and I want to create a DVD with those episodes that I can navigate separately. Do I first convert each .avi? How then do I create a single DVD with six or seven chapters/episodes?

OpenSUSE Install :: Create A Separate /home Partition?
