OpenSUSE Hardware :: Sporadic Hotplug (auto-mount) Behavior In 11.3 On A 64bit Machine?
Nov 8, 2010
I have a new 64 bit workstation (Dell Vostro i7) which I usually keep running for extended periods (read; days and weeks). I have realized that the system completely ignores when I insert a USB stick (LaCie 8Gb USB Key). By ignore, I mean it doesn't get mounted, and /media/ is empty. Interesting enough if I go into YAST and probe for Hardware Information, I find my USB stick there under the USB section. There is no specific entry for the key in /etc/fstab by the way, as far as I know I don't need to specify how a USB stick should be mounted. Auto-mount, when it actually works, is perfectly fine.
Current stable Debian runs on both machines. I connect a digital camera to the USB on the server ("a") and the camera's filesystem is mounted automatically.I want that same filesystem to be made available to the other machine ("b") through nfs.What should be in fstab for that filesystem, or is something else needed in the configuration for "b" in order to access the filesystem which is physically on "a"?
I mount a few locations from a VMware virtual machine, but currently every time I start up VMware I need to re-mount the locations once the VMware image has started up fully, which gets tedious. I'd like to be able to mount them automatically when VMware is started.
I generally double-click the .VMX file (which is associated with VMware Player) to launch the virtual machine, but once it has finished loading I would need to run the mount commands manually or execute a bash script that does it.
Is there any way you can think of to have it done automatically? One way I can think of is to start my virtual machine by running a script that starts VMware player, sleeps for a minute or so, then runs the mount command - but setting the right sleep interval would be difficult because this varies a fair bit - and overall, it's a solution that's kinda icky and that I'd like to avoid if there's some better option.
I was using 11.3, everything worked fine Upgraded to 11.4, now no drives will automount. As a result applications like Nero and K3B cannot find my DVD drive. I can access the drives from an application like VLC where I can enter the device path /dev/dvd
Dmesg and tail -f /var/log/messages output the following error: 118.604577] udisks-daemon: segfault at 18 ip 00007f5597c6b990 sp 00007fffd2e65470 error 4 in libdbus-glib-1.so.2[7f5597c60000+20000] [ 118.757166] udisks-daemon: segfault at 18 ip 00007f557b302990 sp
I suspect there is a bug or incompatablitiy with HAL/dbus/udisks but I cannot track it down.
I'm getting used to gnome3 one thing still bugs me- why when I switch workspaces on my multiple monitor machine does only the primary monitor change to a different workspace? The secondary monitor (my laptop screen) shows all open windows I put on it plus it's not even shown in the workspace list.
Previously, everytime I insert a USB drive it automatically mounts. But now I am getting this error:
"Unable to mount 8.0 GB Media DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
Also, previously my CD/DVD works properly. But now everytime I insert a disk, this is what I get:
"Unable to mount TOSHIBA
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."
I've been running 11.3 for about 3 days, and have been noticing that it seems to crash with depressing regularity. The symptoms are, from the users perspective, the screen just locks up, mouse cursor won't move, won't respond to any keystrokes, and just dead in the water. But, I can go to another system and ssh back into this one. When I do a top I see at least one and sometimes two Xorg processes owned by root that are grabbing every available CPU cycle. This box has dual cores, so it can support two processes running close to 100% CPU. I tried sending the runaway processes a SIGQUIT signal, which did stop them and did restore normal system operation. But I couldn't find the expected core dump anywhere. If I don't do anything to stop the runaway processes, eventually the whole system locks up, including the ssh session.
I haven't been keeping a real close track, buy my general impression is that this only happens when we have two X sessions running. My wife and I usually keep separate login sessions that we switch back and forth from during the day. I realize this isn't a lot to go on. Any suggestions on what I can do to collect some more info. I particular what do I have to do to get a core dump from the runaway process and what should I do with it if I can get it.
I have a Windows partition encrypted with TrueCrypt. If I start TrueCrypt (or RealCrypt) I can mount the partition through the GUI. before I encrypted the partition I used to auto-mount it at boot using fstab and it would appear in my places bar in the file managers. Is it possible to auto-mount truecrypt partitions from fstab?
I'm running OpenSuse 11.2. I've got it running mostly the way I want and it connects to my wireless internet no problem. I have a external hard-drive on my Windows machine setup as a share folder. I can mount the drive with:
mount //10.13.23.2/D /home/james/mnt/win However when I do mount like this it doesn't give my any read/write privliages on the drive. Also on a slightly different issue but still mounting related I have my HDD partitioned into four main drives (not including swap etc). They are my Windows drive, a seperate storage partition formatted for Windows, my main linux drive and a seperate parition for linux storage.
I want to have my Windows drive, my Windows storage drive and my linux storage drive all mounted on boot. I tried adding these to fstab, and they mount fine but again I have no read/write permissions. My fstab looks like this:
Lastly I would like my Windows Share drive to mount on boot but I have been advised that I would need to write a shell script for this, to do network checks as obviously I won't always be connecting to my network.
i have a suse 11.3 machine and i cannot set it to be a NFS server that is i cannot mount a directory of this machine on another one running as well a 11.3 while i can mount without problem a directory from 10.0.i do not know where to start as the NFS server option seems to have vanished from YAST.
I have servers installed with RHEL 4 2.6.9-89.0.9 ELsmp. I tried using uuid and label in /etc/fstab to automount usb drives to mountpoints that I specify after reboot. Unfortunately, it just does not work in all my RHEL4 servers. After every reboot, /etc/fstab will be automatically modified and all configurations related to my USB drives will be changed. Irregardless of whether i use UUID or LABEL in my /etc/fstab.However, it works on RHEL5. But, upgrading is not an option in my environment. I have been googling around looking for alternatives but everything seems to point back to using UUID or LABEL in /etc/fstab. Anyone has tried something that works? Please help me, thank you.
Its annoying to unmount my flash drive twice.. its not a major problem actually but its kinda annoying , its whenever i plug-in my flash drive.. everything works well except when i need to un-mount it.. I usually unmount it twice using right-click of the mouse, then it mounts itself back, so i have to unmount it again.. Is there any way to control this? How do i setup the auto-mount option for USB flash drives?
wanted to ask-should i make auto update to 10.10? Does it work out of the box? Of course, i would wait final release, but just have no time to make clean install. Anyone knows if auto upgrade works fine?
I have just tried to mount my floppy with: mount -t auto -o uid=1000,gid=100 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy and get for response : cannot execute command '' mount -t auto -o uid=1000,gid=100 /dev/fd0 /media/floppy error 127 What is supposed to be done to get my floppy mounted?
Under Suse 11.1 & KDE 3.5, when a CD was inserted, the disk was automatically mounted at /media/cd-label. With 11.2 & KDE 4, I get a pop-up from the task bar, from which I must select the CD, and then select the Open With File Manager option. Then (and only then) is the CD mounted at /media/cd-label.Is there a setting that I can change that will eliminate the requirement for all the mouse clicks and just have a CD automatically
This is probably a dumb question but I can't find out whether I have a 32 or 64 bit machine. Here's uname -a [Linux Flow 18.104.22.168-56.fc13.i686 #1 SMP Wed Sep 15 03:33:58 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux]
I've installed a JBoss-JON-Agent on a Linux-machine. Normally to start the JON-Agent I have to go to /opt/jboss/VGER1/Agent/bin/ and run ./ rhq-agent-wrapper.sh startBut sometimes the Linux-machine will be restarted and I have to start the JON-Agent manually.Now what I want is: when the Linux-machine is restarting, the JON-Agent will be restarted.
I'm not a Fortran coder but I need to call the sub-routine ADAPT.f from a c code.This subroutine calculates a multiple integral of a given function.My problem is that the c code works with no problem in a 32 bit machine but it does not in a 64 bit machine, and the problem seems to be related to adapt, which calculations gives a NA rather than the result of integration.Since fortran is quite obscure for me, I don't know why is this happening. Maybe I should change some data type (from real to double), but I'm not sure. Does anyone have a clue?
I'm trying to install pdksh-5.2.14 in my Slackware-13.0-64 machine. Does this mean the software is not for 64bit machine? How can I fix this? The info file doesn't show me the location of the 64bit version, therefore I assume this one worked on such machine.
I'm using 11.3 64 KDE upgraded from 11.2. Every time I hit the shift key, the mute toggles. I've already tried changing the settings for kmix under global key shortcuts. Any ideas on how I stop or change this behavior?
My attempt to install Fedora 10 x86_64 to a HP EliteBook6930p with an Intel Centrino 2 processor failed. Initially the CD load presents the start screen where I select Install. Then the machine displays multiple errors. When the error scrolling stops the last comments displayed are:
For the last couple of days I've been trying to install Fedora 11 x86_64 without success on my new machine, specs below. Intel Core i7-920 2.66Ghz MSI X58 Pro 7200 SATA Drive (can't remember the make) 6GB RAM So first off I tried install the 32bit live cd and that worked without any problems and installed fine. Only problem is I need access to the full 6GB of RAM so I really need to switch to the 64bit version.
I downloaded the full x86_64 install DVD and burnt it off. Rebooted and began the installation. It was going fine until it started installing the packages. The install seemed to freeze, although the mouse would still move. I left this for 10 minutes just incase it kick started again, but there was no HD activity or DVD activity so I gave up and rebooted to try again. The next time I started the install I had problems with it freezing while partitioning. I was beginning to think something was up with my hard drive or the drivers for the hard drives controller weren't working correctly (could still be the case).
After about 20 attempts with it freezing at various points I gave up and decided to try the x86_64 live cd. This booted with no problems so I started the install from the desktop. First thing I noticed was a kernel error pop up after I started the drive partitioning. Something about dereferencing a pointer in the kernel (0x20) (sorry no additional info at the moment, if needed please ask). This got me thinking the kernels not playing nice with my setup. However, it let me continue and copied the live image onto the hard drive. Then it started going through the post installation steps and this is where I got another kernel error (again I can get this if needed) and the window froze and all activity seemed to stop again. Has anyone got any ideas what could be causing these problems. I've also tried a CentOS 5.2 x86_64 version I had lying around and this had similar problems (although this does use anaconda as the installer too).
