OpenSUSE Install :: Get A 64 Bit File System To Read 32 Bit File System Drives?
Feb 2, 2010
Have just assembled a new computer and thought I would install the 64 bit version of openSUSE 11.2 in a "Windows free zone". After a hiccup or two I have managed to get a system of sorts running but on trying to copy files from my old computer(via a memory stick) it tells me that Vfat is an unknown file system.On my old computer I am running 32 bit openSUSE 11.2 as a dual boot system with Windows XP and have no problems moving files between the two different file systems.Is it possible to get a 64 bit file system to read 32 bit file system drives and if so how do I do it?
I bought a new SD card which I intend to put some MP3s on - except that I can't write to it because it tells me the destination is Read Only. No-probs thinks I: I'll just reformat it.
"Error creating file system: helper exited with exit code 1: cannot open /dev/mmcblk0p1: Read-only file system"
Various chmod commands all result in Read-only file system. I tried umount then mount commands, but it couldn't find it to mount once I'd unmounted it using the same /media/ file path (I assume it's the only one).
My Redhat Enterprise Linux 4 with 6x partitions (/, /boot,/home, /usr, /var, /tmp) of 6.0 GB IDE Hardisk was working quite fine. I decided to create LVM on /home and /var partitions but due to some errors occured and I delete the /home partitions. That's why partition table altered. I then delete 4,5,and 6th partitions (/home, /var, /tmp) partitions and now try to create one by one but following error is coming:-
The Super block could not be read or do not describe a clear ext2 file system. E2fsck b 8193 <device> I have tried following commands,but could not successful:- e2fsck -p /dev/hda7 (where hda7 was created but afterthat it was deleted) e2fsck -a /dev/hda7
All my torrents go to my home/username/Download/ folder, I could read/write yesterday but now I cant even copy the files to a flash drive.The error i get is "Cannot create regular file '/home/username/Download/file' : Read only file system.
Why do I keep getting .gvfs (gnome virtual file system) file appearing as corrupt in /~/usr directory, I can get rid of it by unmounting, but it re-appears later on. It is causing problems as it interrupts my backups (which are automated) with an error message,ListError .gtk-bookmarks/.gvfs [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/home/jimt/.gvfs'
yesterday my downloads stopped working in transmission and gave an error: 'read-only file system'i have since found that all files on my eternal hard drive are now read only.i think it may have something to do with me recently changing the download location to my external hard drive in transmission. how i can rectify this and make it so i can read write again
iv been looking around at the different Linux systems particularity the smaller ones such as DSL, Slax and Puppy Linux. However i need a Linux distribution that doesn't have a GUI desktop environment just the plain old terminal to work on. The system would have to be able to boot from a USB drive also. If anyone knows a systems that fits those requirements or something else related please post. Also what file system is best for USB drives for booting systems?
I have a problem with my USB drive. When i try to make a file transfer, i get the error message which says that it is a 'read only file system' and i can not transfer any files. While looking for a way to solve the problem, i came across another case similar to what i have now which discussed in this thread: [URL]
However, i didn't understand how to resolve the problem from that thread.
I made a modification to the /etc/fstab using Ubuntu 10.04 and now it wont boot correctly. I can get the cli but when I enter /etc/fstab and make an edit it says" changing permission of /etc/fstab: read only file system"How can I mount the partition so that I can edit it
i want to edit the file menu.lst in /boot/grub i m facing a problem of not to enter in to the graphical interphase, so i m using only the boot terminal whn i try to edit this file it says the file is read only. i tried to change the permission of file with chmod also but it is also not working i tried the comand gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst but it is not opening the file to edit since the graphical interphase is not there.
I insert a certain cdrom into my DVD drive, the cd is mounted meaning I do can see the cd rom icon on my desktop. The cd rom icon name is the correct label of the cdrom but when I try to open the cdrom it results to be empty.
Then on the same computer I have installed Virtual Box and the Windows 7 image does read the content of the cdrom.
How can I read the content of the cdrom with ubuntu 9.10?
When trying to copy files from a local folder into a directory that is a mapping of my QNAP server I get an error message " Read-only file system" - and this only since a couple of days.Trying to change ownership with sudo chown also failed.
I am trying ti set up a NFS server using the guide on [URL] However, the NFS mounts on the client side as a read-only file system, so I cannot modify nothing. Here is my /etc/export file on the server side:
Code: /home/acrocephalus/ 192.168.1.35 (rw,async,no_root_squash) and this is my /etc/fstab file relevant line on the client side Code: 192.168.1.33:/home/acrocephalus/ /home/acrocephalus/AcrocephalusServer/ nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr Then, I mount the system using the command Code: sudo mount /home/acrocephalus/AcrocephalusServer/ .
how to mount the NFS with full read-write permissions?
I made a modification to the /etc/fstab using Ubuntu 10.04 and now it wont boot correctly. I can get the cli but when I enter /etc/fstab and make an edit it says" changing permission of /etc/fstab: read only file system" This is what I get when the system boots:

I have a videos server here at work running Mandriva 2009 Spring and I need to copy a 10 gig file from it to a USB drive. The drive needs to be readable and writable from Windows. The file size rules out FAT, and when I try to write to it when formatted as NTFS I get an error about it being a read-only file system. How can I get NTFS support up and running?
I have Ubuntu installed in a virtual machine (VirtualBox) with a separate virtual drive that receives rsync backups of some of my online servers.Itns a series of 4 rsync commands. The first two ran fine, not sure about the third and the fourth wrote nothing. The error in rsync said the file system was read only. I confirmed the whole drive was read only, but it did not start that way.I rebooted and the fourth rsync ran fine. I think this is a linux issue and not a VM issue, but it is clearly mounting in r-w and for some reason changed on it own to read only.Does anyone have any idea why this might occur?It is mounted through fstab with the line:UUID=84d4bc5c-7a68-4096-9725-214f2e8b713e /BackupDrive ext3 defaults 0 2
I'm going to reformat my external drives to get rid of the crud that I've built up. (Crud being incremental backups, windows software, and similar things.)(I also want to get rid of the FAT32 file system that they use.) These are USB 1TB drives. The theory is that data is written to it once, but read back a number of times. (I also burn that data to DVD. If there was software that could organize 5TB of data on DVDs, I'd be using them.)
I"m trying to decide whether to use ReiserFS, Ext4, or another file system. Basically, I want something that:
* Won't get corrupted when the power fails; * Can handle files that are 4+GB in size; * Uses extends --- preferably without user intervention;
Recently I installed openSuSE 11.3 x64 on PC with Intel motherboard, 4GB RAM & two of 1TB WD RE3.Of course I set RAID1 during installation After some struggle with GRUB which pointed to wrong devices after installation I started to work. But suddenly I found that file system is corrupted after every reboot (It does not depend on what I use and what the way I use - reboot, shutdown -r now or even just poweroff - everything follow to:
