I have two partitions: one for Ubuntu 64-bit and another one with the format NTFS only for keeping documents. I have shared one folder of this NTFS partition, but every time I reboot the PC (or shutdown and start again for that matter) the folder is no longer shared.Why?How can I prevent this folder to be un-shared when I reboot the computer?
OpenSUSE installed in a Virtualbox Virtual Machine and I want to set a shared folder.
1 - Set up a Virtual Machine and install OpenSUSE 11.2
2 - Create a shared folder on host (HostFolder)
3 - Setup the shared folder in Virtualbox Via the Virtual Machine details or via Devices > Shared Folders...
4 - Install dependencies for running the Virtualbox installer You need to install the right development kernelpackage for your machinetype (use 'zypper search -i kernel' to see what's installed) sudo zypper make gcc kernel-source kernel-hosttype/default-devel
5 - Run the Virtual Machine and go to Devices > Guest Additions This mounts an iso image in your OpenSUSE guest.
6 - Open a root terminal and run
cd /usr/src/linux make oldconfig && make prepare && make scripts && make dep cp ../linux-obj/$HOSTTYPE/default/Module.symvers . make prepare
* A commenter on previously mentioned thread says this step is unnecessary but it doesn't work without on my system. I suggest trying step 7 first and returning to step 6 if that fails. *
7 - Run ./VirtualboxLinux yourhosttype .run from the mounted iso image.
8 - Create shared folder in OpenSUSE (GuestFolder)
9 - Test with sudo mount -t vboxsf HostFolder /home/user/GuestFolder It works? Great! Let's set up the system so it automounts for your regular useraccount instead of root-only access.
10 - Add this line to /etc/fstab HostFolder /home/user/GuestFolder vboxsf defaults,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0
11 - It works for me but if it still doesn't automount after a reboot; sudo mount -a
I am running ubuntu using VirtualBox on a Macbook Pro. I wanted to share my documents folder on the Mac in the virtual machine. I had no issues creating/mounting the share folder on ubuntu. However the file permissions for the shared folder are owned by root.
I have a similar question: How to make a share folder of virtualbox if I have installed linux Ubuntu 10.10 in virtualbox machine virtualbox is my guest machine and Linux Mint is my host machine. I have installed VirtualBox OSE in Linux Mint and I have installed Windows XP/7, made a sharing folder from guest machine Windows XP/7. My host machine is Linux Mint/Ubuntu, I mean it is on my PC. How to make a share folder in virtual machine linux ubuntu 10.10 LTS in virtualbox OSE to host machine Linux Mint 11 Katya?
I have virtualbox installed, and arch set up as the guest OS now i have made my home folder shared folder with the guest OS but at first my arch couldnt read my home folder.i realized the permission setting for the home folder is set as rwx to myself, and nothing to everyone else.so i chmod -R 755 to everything and that seemed to have solved the problem now i want to make my home folder readonly to my guest OS. do i just do chmod -R 744 to my home folder? i already messed up something when i set 644 to everything in my home folder, as my dropbox stopped working so im afraid of something like that happening to me again, otherwise i d love to experiment
another question is, are .so files supposed to be executable? I googled it, and it seems they dont have to be.But my dropbox stopped working after the .so files in /home/myhomefolder/.dropbox got assigned 644 D:
I have Ubuntu server with Apache 2, PHP, and various DBMSs running in VirtualBox on my Mac host for my web development work. To easily create/edit the files I'm working on, I mounted a directory from my Mac host via the VirtualBox shared directory feature to /var/www/. Every file I create on my Mac host has the following permissions on the on the Server: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6 2011-07-30 01:27 test.The problem is that most PHPscripts/frameworks/etc.need write access to some files.It is extremely annoying to have to chmod every new file/directory that needs write access.Is there a way to set the correct permissions for the files/directories automatically?
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:
I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 (guest) on Windows 7 (host) with the guest additions installed. I have an auto-mount folder that maps to my D: drive on the host which I can access using sudo ls /media/sf_D_DRIVE - however, even when my user (ross) is a member of the vboxsf group I get a permission denied error when attempting to explore it. I have restarted since adding my user to the vboxsf group.
This should work because I am a member of the group (which has rwx rights), so why doesn't it?
ross@panther:~$ ls -l /media total 8 drwxrwx--- 1 root vboxsf 8192 2011-07-03 22:24 sf_D_DRIVE ross@panther:~$ ls -l /media/sf_D_DRIVE/ ls: cannot open directory /media/sf_D_DRIVE/: Permission denied
I have a D-Link DNS-323 network drive which mounts at multiple points to my filesystem when booting. I had to make some fstab changes when I upgraded from 11.2->11.3 last year, and now the same thing seems to be happening since I've upgraded to 11.4. When I login to my profile the desktop hangs and no icons appear. I cannot open a Nautilus window, or access ALT-F2, however just about every other program works fine. Since I disabled the fstab lines (slightly modified when copied here to generalize):
I'm using openSUSE11.0 in VirtualBox 2.2 on XP so files need to be shared between it and the host. But do I have to mount the share folder every time? Here's what I typed in terminal: sudo mount -t vboxsf share /media/share // the first share is the folder in the host, and it works for each time How could I set it once and for all?
I've tried using the "devices->Shared Folders" to create a shared folder but it didn't work. I still couldn't see it from the guest OS (winXP). I also, tried sharing a folder in winXP and then tried adding a network folder in dolphin - also didn't work.
I'm a Windows person and will soon be tasked with UNIX/LINUX projects. I'm trying to learn as much as possible in a very short period of time. I'm very familiar with VMPlayer and VirtualBox. Recently I installed OpenSUSE 11.3 as a guest OS on VMPlayer (bridged network). The host is WinXP. I have also enabled shared folder to the host @ CRepositoryInstalls. Question - How do I access the shared folder from OpenSUSE (the guest OS) and vice-versa?
I am attempting to make a shared folder for people that VPN into the network. This folder needs to be accessible to windows and mac machines. So far I have the VPN through ppptd working. I just don't know how to make a folder. I feel like this should be fairly easy. I am using Lucid Lynx server edition.
since the last SuSE online update (last Wednesday?) the X server no longer starts on our notebook (ATI HD 4200) so we only have the consoles available, which limits the WAF heavily . We were using SuSE 11.3 with the Gnome desktop for about one months and it worked smoothly, but since the update (which included a kernel update to 22.214.171.124-0.7) the X server tries to start 5 times and then gives up. All logfiles end with:
Code: ... [ 13.899] Segmentation fault at address 0x3c [ 13.899] Fatal server error:
I used the ati driver ati-fglrxG02-kmp-desktop, version 8.762_k126.96.36.199_12-31.1 from the ATI Suse repository. To solve the problem I already switched to the Xorg driver which lead to a color distorted display but no segmentation fault. But I'd like to get the ati driver running again.
I wanted to enable file sharing in for one of my folders under the home directory. I noticed that the 'not shared' and 'shared' always defaulted back to 'not shared'. And now I see what looks like an electrical plug icon symbol over the folder icon symbol like I might see used for some of the root folders. What does the new icon indicate about the folder attributes and why does file sharing default to 'not shared'?
Does anyone know a good program to use for comparing folder names from 2 different directories? The reason being that at work we have a shared area with 2 folders one named REC (records) the other named WIP (work in progress) within these 2 folders there are 100s of subfolders. The folder names in wip and rec both need to mirror each other but the files are different within the folders. The problem we're having at the moment is people are creating new folders with out letting me know which means the folder names are no longer mirroring each other. I need to know if there is a utilty available to compare just folder names so that we can get a list of folders which have been created without our knowledge and we can ask the originators to remove them.
I was using tripleboot system in one hard drive. That included Windows 7,Ubuntu 10.10 and Ubuntu 11.04. And yesterday I decided to added openSUSE 11.3 at another partition. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 grub2 as bootloader.
At first there was no problem. All OS detected well, but after opeSUSE online updates last night my openSUSE partition won't boot. First, at boot I chose openSUSE and it said "Boot kernel first" and nothing happens. And then I boot to ubuntu and ran update-grub then I saw grub no longer detected openSUSE partition.
I am having trouble accessing my shared folders from VirtualBox on Ubuntu 10.04. I installed guest additions and made sure I had my folder selected in the settings but I just can not access it. I tried re-installing guest additions as well.
I have two computers in the house that I have shared folders and one has a shared printer. I have a desktop running 9.04 and a laptop running 9.10. The desktop has several shared folders and a shared HP printer. The laptop only has one shared folder. Everything was working fine up until a couple days ago. I went on the laptop to access one of the desktop shared folders, and nothing shows up under "places, network" except windows network.
It no longer shows that the printer is currently shared either, but the funny thing is that I can still print to the desktop from the laptop.I just can't figure out how to access the shared folders.
My configuration is: Linux Ubuntu 9.4 - samba client , Windows XP machine - samba server (shared dir)
While trying to mount a windows xp ntfs share from Ubuntu 9.4 I am receiving a "Permission Denied error(13)" message.
However when using smbclient I can browse the shared directory successfully (meaning all login details + domain are correctly entered). I ran an ethernet sniffer on the windows side (the one hosting the share) and saw that it refuses a connection with STATUS_INVALID_WORKSTATION
Is it possible for 2 linux machines to mount the same space? The filesystem is Ext3 as mounted by the primary machine. I need to attach a 2nd machine to the same space to see the data for backup purposes. I've tried mounting but I get, "wrong fs type, bad superblock" error.
Does anyone else have this problem. Came just after recent update and is highly annoying. Plug usb device in and it is recognized on lsusb but not mounting and appearing in media folder. How do I solve this. Searched the forum but nothing useful
I tried mounting a new CD, but nothing happened. I tried again, with a CD I'd used before with the same results. I tried a DVD in the same drive and it mounted OK, so it's not hardware. (I haven't had time until now to report this.) The box is running F 14 and is fully updated. Below is the results from /var/log/messages saved from June 28:
