I have been trying to create a live CD or DVD with kiwi, and following the instructions from Portal:KIWI - openSUSE All went well with the building and creation of the ISO image, but when I try to boot it I get:
Failed to mount ext3 clic container Failed to mount root filesystem if I press Alt-F3 (suggested in the terminal)the top most error is tune2fs: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /read-only/fsdata.ext3 Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock. Something I did find was that it may not have permission to use tune2fs.I haven't done any fiddling with the template supplied with kiwi.
I have a problem booting anything from USB stick on my IBM Thinkpad T42. It used to run normally, I could even install Windows or Linux from it, but now it stopped working. This particular concern is about booting freshly installed Xubuntu version 9.04 off a Kingston 4GB flash stick. I've installed Xubuntu using usb-create program directly from a booted live cd. Installation went fine and all the options in BIOS are setup correctly (I think). In boot menu in BIOS the stick is recognized correctly and + appears in front of it. Stick is selected as primary boot device. BIOS usb support is also enabled.
Now when I power on the computer, it reads something from the stick and stops right after displaying: SYSLINUX 3.63 Debian-2008=07=15 EBIOS ... etc... Then nothing happens and the text stays on like this.
I have tried to install F13 on an 8 GB USB memory stick (flash drive, thumb drive) but have had limited success. I used the Live USB Creator method as suggested in the Fedora web site and although I ended up with a bootable USB memory stick, I was unable to save any changes even though I allowed a 2GB persistent overlay.
I then tried to do it using Unetbootin and again got a bootable memory stick but again was unable to save any changes. Could someone explain what I might be doing wrong or is it just not possible to make a bootable memory stick with F12 that will save any changes?
My new pc doesn't have a cd rom so I have to use a memory stick, usb hard driver or a SD card. So how do I install ubuntu? For some sh'itty reason I got windows vista installed here which is more frustrating then everything else I have tried.
Coming from Windows. First installed Fedora 11 but lost network and haven't been able to restore network connectivity. Attempted to re-install but during the boot process it complained about creating a soft link to /dev/root (not sure what this is about). So attempted to install CentOS by booting from the LiveCD. Much nicer interface but have no install icon and there doesn't appear to be installation guide. How I can install CentOS?
I recently had to reinstall windows on another partition on my hard drive due to there not being any good way to run unrealed under ubuntu (believe me, I've tried everything) Is there a way to install grub from windows without using a liveCD or booting to a USB? I have downloaded WINGRUB and to be fair I have no clue how to use it.I no longer can access my Ubuntu partition.
My usb stick will not allow me to easily copy and paste files on to it, or delete them once I no longer want them on the drive. Its owner is root. How can I change the owner? At the moment it is loading as a stylesheet in media/usb0.
The file is transferring at a very low speed. 74mb in 4 minutes
I suspect I will do better if I set up the drive via fstab. What entry should I put in fstab for a USB stick drive?
we found that if we use 'top' to show the memory usage of a server (SuSe Linux 10), we can get virtual memory usage as well as 'Resident memory' usage. For virtual mem or a particular process, it is around 1.1GB, which is large but for resident memory, it only consumes 300MB. Are there anyone who knows what the differences are? I would also like to know whether the difference (1.1GB - 300MB) = 800MB are actually available for use by other applications in the system.
I have a USB modem which I used when I had Windows, this device is not compatible in any way with my Ubuntu installation. I was wondering if - rather than throw this in the trash - is it possible to reformat and use it as a USB Memory stick. Properties show it as having 23+ Gb of storage.
I have a 4 Gb memory stick which used to have OpenSuse on it but I don't use OpenSuse and wanted to use the stick for something else - for backing up my Mozilla Thunderbird installation. I thought that by re-formatting the stick, using a file obtainable from the HP web site, in connection with installing Linux on a memory stick, that it would leave me with an empty one but it hasn't; there is still a lot of OpenSuse stuff on it. How can I "empty" it so that I can use it to transfer my Ubuntu Thunderbird to another computer which is also running Ubuntu. I was going to open a terminal and type:
I seem to have a knack for having systems built that OpenSuse doesn't like. I remembered this afternoon why I gave up on 11.x - the 11.4 LiveCD doesn't like my setup, at least in terms of booting into a GUI. I have uploaded two photos I took of the bootup screen, in case the provide information that might be helpful. I am sorry about the shakiness, I have CP and the the 2nd one is harder to read because of that, but it says something about "amd radeon hd 6800 series (chip ID 0x6738) requires KMS" among other things.
Even though I'm really rusty in CLI, I'm happy to give it a go, to get this working, if possible. The two screenshots are [URL]
FWIW, the 11.4 LiveCD also really didn't like the NVIDIA GeForce 7000M / nForce 610M in my old Acer Aspire 5520 either.
I just got a Sony DCR-DVD108. It uses a mini dvd and a memory stick pro duo. It was a gift, and it's the first time through the rodeo for me using this set up. I can get the card recognized when I plug it in using a card reader. I want to record video, and that's where I run into problems. When I insert it, I get something saying that I have still photos, and Shotwell is the default photo software. That would be OK if I had still photos, but like I said, I'm going for video with this set up. I have VLC, but when I tell VLC to "open capture device" under "Media" it gives me a dialog box with (I think) Linux 2 as the capture method (this is going to get a little fuzzy as I have no idea what it's looking for here) and a couple of blanks that need filled in. I may be going about this bass-ackwards, in fact I probably am, but like I said, this is the first time I've messed with a memory stick pro duo. I guess since it's Sony they want me to go out and buy a Play Station to get this to work. I don't think I want to go there. I might be barking up the wrong forest with VLC, but Wikipedia says it will play it.
My 16gb usb memory stick now fails to mount. The device can be seen in gparted but partition is shown as unknown. Tried to format but error message popped up "failed". The device is shown in dmesg see below. I had tried to use the device to create a bootable usb but this did not work and the problems happen there after.
dmesg: usb 2-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3 [41796.814297] usb 2-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice [41796.943922] Initializing USB Mass Storage driver... [41796.944228] scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
I am new to ubuntu and linux in general, I've been using it for about a week and I like it very much. The only problem is that I have an ipod touch and I purchase music and video from the itunes store from the device. I can import music but not the items purchased as it is encrypted so I need to use itunes. I installed virtualbox so that I could use xp (only to allow me to use itunes) but as I have a netbook with no disk drive I want to boot from a usb memory stick. Virtualbox doesn't appear to allow this so I am a bit stuck.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04. I was having problems with bad sectors on a Sony memory stick--a couple of photos that we couldn't get off. So I installed testdisk and photorec and successfully got the photos off. That's the good news.
I decided I format the stick using testdisk. I unmounted it and formatted it (FAT) I don't know whether I re-mounted it, there was some message about rebooting.
In any event I now can't get the stick to show up *at all*, no matter what I do. testdisk doesn't seem to see it, it doesn't come up on my desktop when I plug the camera in. The camera doesn't recognize that it, my windows boxes don't see it either.
I've got a memory stick with encrypting software. How can I read (and write) this encrypted partition with my ubuntu 10.10? I'm sorry but i don't know what's the manufacture of this stick. I only know it looks like this (Of course no M$ -logo)There are sotfware named UFDutility.exe. Opening this I can read secured informations in Windows but in Ubuntu it only say: �The device is not plug-in�.
What can I do to correct the failure of the mount command to load the mem stick. In nautilus it reports that I do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "Kingston". In user settings there is only one user: Robin. The user privileges are showing as all ticked except for send and receive faxes, and use tape drives.
In the group for Robin there is only one member: Robin. Group id is 1000. There are a lot of groups available on the system. They all show Robin as unticked as a group member. To what groups should I make Robin be a member, without compromising security? Using Ubuntu 11.04
Its a "Geek Squad" memory stick from Best Buy. There has been a couple of other times (recently) that it was not recognozed but after a couple of attempt it loaded. But today it is not showing up at all.
