General :: Mount Mp3 Player (sdb) Without Waking Up Sleeping Sda?
Jun 26, 2010
I would like to mount my mp3 player (sdb) without waking up the sleeping SATA disk sda. Attaching mp3 player does not wake sda up, but mounting it does. My system is mostly Slackware 11, so I'm still on kernel 2.4.
I've downloaded Fedora 12 and decided to try and install it on my old laptop which is currently running Ubuntu 9.10 with no problems.
When I boot from the live cd, it starts to load with the 3 bars on the bottom, one on top of the other, one is white, one is dark blue, the other is in between those colours in the spectrum somewhere....
Anyway, the load bars complete and "Fedora 12" turns white, then the following output populates:
mount: unknown filesystem type 'DM_Snapshot_Cow' (<----- repeated a bunch of times) can't mount root filesystem Boot has failed, sleeping forever.
Assume: 1) Multi-cpu environment 2) Process that gets interrupted, is the same process that executes the interrupt handler, so I guess technically nothing gets interrupted except what the process was doing before, but it is still executing as it is executing the handler. 3) There is no top or bottom half, when an interrupt takes place the handler is invoked, executes, then return from interrupt, simple as that.
Why would sleeping the handler (puts in sleep queue, context switch to next runnable process) be a bad idea?
I connect my MP3-player to USB-port, /dev/sdb appears, but no /dev/sdb1, so I can't mount it (no automount in the system). Filesystem of the player seems to be FAT32. "dosfstools" and "mtools" are installed. Why is there no sdb1?
I often run calculations on my Linux computer, which cause my X server to crash from time to time. Almost always, some programs seem to survive to the crash and are in an interruptible sleeping state, for example:29315 ? Sl 54:35 /home/kashim/Desktop/anylogic/anylogic -vmargs -Xmx1024MIs there a way to reconnect these applications with the new X server?
I've taken the kernel 220.127.116.11 and edited the .config file to take out most of the compatibility etc. that I will not be using. I'm run the makes and updated grub. I go to boot it runs through most of the way until I get the following:Quote:/bin/plymouthd: symbol lookup error: /bin/plymouthd: undefined symbol:ply_chara could not read byte from child: SuccessNo root device foundBoot has failed, sleeping forever.'m fairly new to Linux and still more of a dabbler. (Though this seemed more difficult than "Who is root" so I didn't put this in the newbie thread.)Any ideas for what might be wrong?I've tried looking in the config file from something that relates, but they have all been included (Y) in the module.
I recently installed Kubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. It is working well, but Movie Player does not work, and Dragon Player plays videos/movies but with no audio. VLC works fine. how to either remove Movie Player and Dragon Player or make them work. I tried apt-get remove mplayer but that doesn't work. If not that, I wonder if the default media player can be changed to VLC, e.g., when you click any video it will start to play using VLC?
I have a COWON S9 (an MP3 player that normally mounts like any memory stick) and I noticed that when I connect it, it won't auto mount and does not seem to be recognized by Lucid after yesterday's kernel updates.
This player has always auto-mounted without any problems until yesterday's (2011 Jan 27) kernel updates. I rebooted and made sure I'm on the latest kernel.
Anyone else experiencing things not auto mounting? I can't get it to manually mount either. It doesn't seem to be recognized at all now.
I have Mandriva 08 and I can't get a MP3 player or a Flash Drive to mount. If I manually mount the Flash drive the "Computer File" won't create a file so I can access it. I get no desktop icons and I have checked the box in "config-whatever", The Flash Drive will appear in HardDrake but the MP3 player will not. The MP3 player will appear in the "Computer File" but will not manually mount.
Iam using opensuse 11.1. I want to know which is the best player that can be used in suse, which should support all codecs. I have tried totem player, xine, kaffeine, Noautun etc. But none of them is good. I have tried to install vlc player, but it shows a lot of dependencies too..it was not successful.
When logged in as my normal userid to OpenSuse 11.2, I cannot get Banshee to recognize my Creative Zen MP3 player. The player does appear as a device on the desktop and I can access files on the player through that icon, but cannot get Banshee to recognize it so it can be managed in Banshee.If however, I log on as root, Banshee recognizes the device without a problem.
The log file in ~/.config/banshee-1 shows the following: libusb couldn't open USB device /dev/bus/usb/001/004: Permission denied. libusb requires write access to USB device nodes.
It has 2 GB of built-in flash memory and slot for MicroSD. I have OpenSuSE 11.3 with GNOME and Windows XP SP3 installed on my Samsung NC10 netbook. In Windows, when I connect player via USB, it recognize player as disk and I can drag files to listen music. I used to that when I insert USB storage device or mp3 player in my netbook running OpenSuSE,automatically mounts device to /media/xxx. But when I connect player to computer, nothing happens. There are no new entries in /dev/ after insertion.
Having woken her up, she is often very bleary eyed with no energy and little movement. It takes her quite a time to be fully functional. Are there any settings that reduce the time between waking up and full efficiency?
I was using wicd on a spotty network, the house blocked a lot of the signal from moving around, so wicd was having major issues with that AP. Later I was trying to connect to another AP but wicd couldn't connect plus it was saying the spotty network's name was the one it was connecting to. Although I didn't try before I left/gave up I'm sure a restart of the wicd daemon would have solved it.
But why is this even the case? is there something I could add to the scripts that would clear this issue up? (I also submitted a bug on wicd's launchpad project but haven't gotten any response... I hope this isn't a 'feature')
usb devices, such as external hdd, memory stick and mp3 player, when I connect them to USB, they show up in Nautilus, but when I click on them, Nautilus is unable to mount them and returns the following error: Unable to mount location Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error in some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I recently started to use Ubuntu in VWware player on my windows-XP. I installed ubuntu 10.04 few days ago, It was working fine.
Yesterday, I compile a new kernel, kernel 2.6.33 in my vmware ubuntu 10.04. Everything went well till I did reboot. before reboot I use the command "update-grub" to make it compatible to the new kernel. BUT... after rebooting, I have a problem in loading a grub correctly. it gives me following message " [2.149136 ]kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)" and I can not proceed further. I have my all data on it. I also tried to boot it from live CD but unfortunately, I can't mount the hard disk on it in order to get those data from my old Ubuntu set up.
I have a Hitachi SimpleDrive (LS-1000-EMEA) it has an "Auto-sleep" function which I believe is controlled by the enclosure itself.The problem I'm having is that when the drive goes to sleep Ubuntu does not seem to be able to wake it up again. I am running Karmic 9.10 as a stripped down install with XBMC as a front-end. I cannot access the drive at all when it does this.
I'm not sure if the problem is that the drive is formatted as NTFS. I notice that when the drive is connected to my Mac or PC it resumes no problem (with a slight delay as the drive gets out of standby) but with Ubuntu it just seems to stop responding. When I reboot the drive is not mounted by Ubuntu. Physically, the blue LED indicator on the drive is frozen (i.e. lit-up) rather than flashing as it normally would. I have to actually unplug (from the mains) and plug it back in for it to work.I have tried using sdparm, but as I say I think the sleep function is controlled by the enclosure and thus sdparm gives me no standby options.
I'm having a problem with krusader. When I open and close it, it remains with a sleep status. This can be verified by the system monitor and by the "ps aux". The krusader only go away if I use killall. This is occurring in more than one machine. I'm using squeeze gnome 64 bits.
I put power settings to never, but the screen still goes to sleep and moving the mouse you have to login.What I really want is no login screen, and I suppose if you were watching a vid it would go dark?
I've created an LiveUSB disk with the USBcreator method in Windows 7.Now the the image is copied succesfully and the USB key is bootable.However when the boot window popsup and I select the verify & boot option, a graphical loading window comes up and right after that the system halts with the error message "Sleeping forever".What am I doing wrong? Or what is Fedora doing wrong with their LiveCD to USB media?I've did a forum search and the exact same issue is described in this thread[URL]
I've got the new beta working in ubuntu 64 bit lucid 10.4. But, I have to go to admin/sys monitor and end the boxee "sleeping" process B4 it will start again after exiting The app? Id sure like to fix it.
when I put my lappy to sleep, it looks as if it sleeps well.the light blinks, just like when it did on windows when it slept but when I try to wake it up, it powers up the fan and hdd and i see nothing on my screen, it doesn't even light up.I am always forced to do a hard reset.do I need to blacklist a driver or something?
