General :: Automating USB Drive Configuration Of Partition Table, Partition And File System

Jan 26, 2011

I have tried to automate the configuration of a usb drive with not much success.

The problem that I have is that I have a large amount of usb drives that have a partition table of type "loop" and I need to change them to "msdos". The size of the drives vary and I need to use FAT32 or FAT16 file system.

I've tried various partitioning commands and gui applications but cant find one that I can give a one line command to to set the partition table, maximum partition size and file system.

Debian :: Deleted The Partition Containing Windows, And Now System Will Not Load Any Bootable CD?

Jun 11, 2010

I had a dual boot on my dell mini inspiron for win xp and linux debian. Due to some issue with windows, I needed to reinstall it and remove debian. From within debian's inbuilt GParted, I deleted the partition containing windows, and now my system will not load any bootable CD (whether winXp or Gparted live cd). Everytime I restart the system with a bootable Cd, it still takes me into debian to reformat my hard drive by deleting linux partitions and re-install winxp from bootable cd.

General :: Shrinking Broke Partition Table - EXT4 File System?

In an attempt to shrink my Data partition on my 500GB drive I had succeded in shrinking it but I think I have broken the partition table as now it refuses to mount. When trying to mount I get this error mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda2 I have done some searching around but most fixes haven't worked because they are based on ext2/3 File systems and this partition is ext4. Using Ubuntu 10.04 x64.

General :: Mount NTFS Partition Deeper In File System With Fstab?

Mar 15, 2010

I'm dual booting with Windows 7 and would like to have my windows 7 user folder mount when I boot.

After some looking around I edited /etc/fstab to add the following line:

This works. But it mounts the windows partition from the root level. I'd like to just mount C:UsersFHSM (/Users/FSHM) to /mnt/windows.

I'm trying to get it so that when I click on the windows drive I get my windows user folder instead of having to click through from C: to get to it.

I'm the only user on this system but if I created a second windows user would my home folder mount for that person too or does setting the user ID prevent that from happening?

Ubuntu :: Grub2 Loads The Recovery Partition Of Win7?

Mar 7, 2011

As a big supporter of Ubuntu, after installing Ubuntu 10.10 on my mums laptop i decided to also install it on my sisters Acer Aspire one netbook.

The specific netbook had pre-installed Win7 starter. Everything went really smooth with the installation with ubuntu 10.10, Grub menu was also loading pretty well but when i chose to load on windows it loads the recovery partition of the hard drive.

The issue is that the netbook, like most netbooks and laptops, has a hidden partition which is used to recover Windows on the system. My Grub2 loader added this partition as an option to load windows with result me not be able to boot on windows ...well i do can load but it loads the recovery of windows.

Ubuntu :: System After Grub2 But Before Desktop Loads?

Sep 10, 2010

The screen will show a blinking cursor for a few seconds. The keyboard works and a signal is found for the speakers. Then the 'Ubuntu' loading screen will show but at this point the screen would freeze and the keyboard will cease to function. At this point I have to reboot from the on/off switch. It can take several attempts before the desktop will load, or if I'm lucky, it'll load up first time. I've had this problem since 9.10. I'm not quite sure why it's taken me this long to attempt to sort it out.

Ubuntu Servers :: Reading Htop System Loads With The I7?

Jul 7, 2010

I just built a server, which displays 8 cores in the i7 processor. However, because of the 2 threads per core, it shows up as an 8 core system. When viewing htop, it shows system loads at 0.29,0.18, and 0.13 for respective averaging times. How would I calculate actual system load for this processor? Would I divide the average by 4 or 8? Or, is there another method?

Fedora Hardware :: Diagnose System Lockup - Extremely High Loads?

Dec 23, 2010

Where does one look in terms of diagnostics after a system lockup and hard reset? For example, one of my computers, running Fedora 14 i686, has taken to locking up quite a bit lately. My only way out is a hard reset. Now, once the thing is booted back up I'd like to try to figure out where the problem lies. Where do I look? Will any of the log files reveal anything relevant to me? If so, what sort of things would I be looking for. Keywords?

This same box also locked up when I had Fedora 14 x86_64 installed. I had read that there were some issues with the newer 64 bit kernels that were causing lockups and / or extremely high loads. This is why I switched back to the 32 bit version, 2 days ago to be exact. The box gets little use. It's a toy really and not my main "daily use" computer. It is, however, running folding@home. Maybe that's where the problem is. About 15 minutes ago I called home and had my wife reset the box, then I logged in from work and stopped the folding service. I'll have to see if it locks up without folding running. Folding was running on this box when I had the 64 bit version installed also.

Ubuntu :: Assign Permissions On A Partition With Ntfs As The File System?

can assign permissions on a partition with ntfs as the file system. I am aware of editing fstab and setting some basic permissions. What I am clumsily dictating is can you edit permissions of individual folders for specific users in Linux. I have already tried chmod and such

etc something similar to this

[user@computername user]$ sudo chmod 600 directory

Ubuntu Servers :: Extending File System Partition Remotely?

Aug 24, 2010

I'm still pretty new to servers and ubuntu and have ran into something I could see being a problem in the future. On a dedicated remote server I have installed a web server using the "How To Forge - Perfect server set up for ubuntu 10.04 and ispconfig". I have a forum and email up and running and shoutcast radio and teamspeak3 servers also. We can also nx into it if need be. I can reformat the 1T hdd remotely from my provider control panel and ssh is installed at the same time and a new root password is sent via email. The thing is I now realise that by default the file system is written to a 10gig partition.

This might usually be ok but ispconfig uses the /var/www folder on the file system to house the forum I host and the partition is filling up. My mate I co rent with is talking about starting a parrot/bird owners forum and i might eventually like to have a gaming forum as well. I realise I should probably have set things up differently but like I said I am new at all this and tbh the home directories never going to have much in it so theres 900 gig doing nothing. So my question is can I use anything to enlarge that partition remotely? I know theres gparted on disc and all the articles I found say I need to use a disc which obviously is out of the question.

So what I think I need is some sort of partition magic for ubuntu. I would really like to expand it so all my current files etc on it would stay as is. I'm also currently looking into back up methods and wondered if that would be the way to go? Back up my file system and home directories and then reformat and make the partition larger? Or could I copy the entire www folder to a newly created folder in /home and re write the site enabled files to point to it? Would this work and if so what else would I need to edit?

General :: Can Keep The System Load Under Control During The Deletion

Mar 27, 2010

I generate more than 50GB of cache files on my RHEL server (and typical file size is 200kb so no of files is huge). When I try to delete these files it takes 8-10 hours. However, the bigger issue is that the system load goes to critical for these 8-10 hours. Is there anyway where I can keep the system load under control during the deletion.I tried using

nice -n19 rm -rf *

but that doesn't help in system load.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 64-bit Server With Vmware And SSD - Setup The File System On Each Partition?

Apr 24, 2010

I have just bought two SSD, Intel X25-M 80GB, to install Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit server with vmware on a computer with 8GB RAM. I have tried to find out how to set up the system, but is somewhat confused on the setup. The idea is to use software raid to aviod data loss if one SSD is giving up in the future. When installing I have thought about using tree partitions.Swap Root Vmware vhd When reading about how to optimize vwware I found this:

Quote: Disks, Disks, Disks: I always attempt to put my guest OSs on their own partition and I format that partition thusly because VMWare server reads guests in huge blocks (/dev/sdb1 is the partition my guests reside on): mke2fs -b 4096 -R stride=8 /dev/sdb1

Then I set the block readahead value to somewhere around 16384, but you can go as high as twice that value (in my case this is an entire disk array, so I dropped the partition indicator): blockdev �setra 16384 /dev/sdb

How should I setup the file system on each partition? When using an SSD, each partition should be aligned. How do I do that? Let say I would like to have 4GB swap, 60GB root and the rest for vmware. At last, I have fount out that full support for TRIM is supported by kernel v2.6.33. Ubuntu 10.04 is using v2.6.32? If so, for full TRIM support I must upgrade kernel to v2.6.33.

Ubuntu :: Is NTFS A Good File System For A Shared Partition Between WinXP

Ubuntu Installation :: The Ext4 File System Creation In Partition Failed?

Feb 11, 2011

I have a Dell Mini 9 netbook. The SSD took a dump, so I ordered a Super Talent 16gb replacement. I put it in yesterday, tried to install 10.10 and constantly get errors. The first error, which I haven't had since, was [ERROR 30] Read-only File System. The install obviously failed. Wondering if perhaps the file got messed up in translation, I redownloaded 10.10, reformatted the flash drive (sandisk cruizer 4gb), put 10.10 back on via the program on the Ubuntu site. No luck, but no longer the [error 30]. Tried again using Unetbootin, no luck. Rinse repeat a few times, no errors just a working cursor spinning and spinning and spinning and spinning and.. you get it.

Tried to put WinXP on it just because I was that frustrated, no luck.

Now I'm back to Ubuntu (because let's face it, who wants to deal with Windows, christ they make it so complicated). I'm currently using 10.04 because I was hoping (praying) it might just be a 10.10 thing.

No such luck, now it goes to step 7/7, starts, and 5% of the way thry "creating ext4 file system" it says "the ext4 file system creation in partition #1 (0,0,0)(sda) failed." I have checked the SSD in the Disk Utility, SMART tests are clean. I have gone to terminal and run fdisk and had a smarter person than me look at the copypasta, no errors, I have deleted all existing partitions in gparted and started fresh. I have tried the auto partitioning, I have tried manual, I am going insane. Literally insane. My preschooler thinks I've leaped off the deep end.

Could it be my flash drive? Could the SSD be defective despite the tests coming back clean? What do I need to type into terminal? Is there a way to entirely entirely entirely wipe the SSD to make it fresh-out-the-box clean? I will happily provide whatever you need if it means I can get my husband off my back about this stupid netbook with its stupid tiny keyboard.

Ubuntu :: Repairing File System After Partial Fsck On Mounted Partition?

Apr 4, 2011

I'm running an Acer Aspire 1830T-3721 dual-booting Windows 7 with Ubuntu 10.10 (Desktop).

Background: So first I dropped my laptop a couple feet while Windows was running. The laptop immediately shut off and then tried to boot. Booting Windows results in an unfortunate "Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer. The error can be caused by ... faulty hardware ... Status: Oxc00000e9 Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred." But Ubuntu booted fine, and could access my NTFS files fine, so I was trying to work on the problem from there. I try a few utilities, looking at the partition table, etc without actually applying any changes.

Then I run a fsck on the drive. It loudly warns me that if I continue on a mounted drive, then I'm going to mess things up. In a moment of stupidity I push on, thinking that surely it would ask me for more configuration, or confirmation, before actually starting. The fsck runs for about 1 second before I Ctrl-C it, running some preliminary stuff and then just starting pass 1.

After this, Ubuntu won't boot anymore. Instead, it hangs just after the init-bottom script runs. If I boot with init=/bin/bash, I can get to a shell, and see that my file system is still there, but not sure what else to do.

I've been running off of a SysRescCD LiveCD, from which I've looked at the drive with testdisk. Testdisk reports that "the hard disk seems too small" while showing me the partition table.

I ran a fsck on the Linux partition; it fixed a bunch of things. There has been no apparent effect on the boot behavior.

I can access all my files, back them up, and reinstall Ubuntu, but I'm hoping there's a better solution, perhaps one that will also help me repair my Windows installation (but I'm looking at one problem at a time here).
