OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Curious About Mounting Flash Device?
Apr 11, 2011
I'm trying to use the most-base install of opensuse 11.4 and so i'm using the text-only interface. I looked up some guides on using the 'mount' command but I'm encountering problems. I tried doing.
mount /dev/sdb /tmp/flash
but first off, I don't even know if sdb is my flash device, there's ~60 things in my /dev/ directory, and ~10 things that look like 'sdb' but I try anyway, and I generally get an error telling me that either /dev/sdb is busy, or /tmp/flash is busy but I wanted to check here and clarify first, how do I even know which /dev/ item is my flash drive? When I plug in my flash drive, no less than 3 new entries appear in /dev/ so, I'm a little confused. What do I do?
I have a 1TB external HDD which I use to store my music library of roughly 40 gigs. Therefore I would normally import music directly from it to my Rhythmbox library while keeping everything stored on the removable drive. In recent versions of Rhythmbox this is no longer needed as the application integrates my external HDD into the side pane and lists the music automatically. This is great although when closing Rhythmbox and reopening it, the drive has to be scanned all over again. This is a huge pain when it has to scan through 40+ gigs of music.
Therefore I would like this feature disabled and removed from my side pane. It is not needed and causes quite a large annoyance. Either I want it removed or the ability to keep the index of music from the drive in Rhyrhmbox at all times. Achieving this would be fantastic and would switch me back to Rhythmbox. recently I have been using Exaile which I love but rhythmbox not working bugs me.
I am currently using opensuse 11.2 with kde 4.3.1. I am having a problem when I connect my samsung R450. It will not mount or show up as a usable device in either Dolphin, Amarok, or on the device notifier. I have tried manually mounting but I get an error saying it cannot find such device. I did not have any issues using it in 11.1 with KDE 4.2. It is being recognized by my system, but not allowing it to show up as a storage device or being mounted.
output of dmesg:
output of lsusb:
When I shut of the usb mass storage on the samsung R450 it switches to modem and is properly detected and usable as modem by my system.I don't have any other problems with other usb devices, such as a digital camera or flash drives, so I don't know if I just missing a system setting or configuring something wrong.
Am in the process of upgrading from an ancient OpenSuSE release (7.2) to 11.2. One thing I have been unable to do that worked fine under 7.2 is remotely mounting a compact flash drive from an XP machine. Worked fine for many moons on 7.2:
# mount -t cifs -o rw //xpbox/'cf (H)' /cf0 I get: mount error(12): Cannot allocate memory Other cifs mounts of hard disks work fine.
I found a posting that says this means the memory allocation error is from the XP side. It says to fiddle with the XP registry, specifically IRPStackSize. I was not confident this fix would work since there should not be anything significantly more consuming with 11.2 compared to 7.2, and indeed, I got the same error after changing the parameter to 18 and rebooting the XP machine. Any ideas? I have some suspicion that the space and parenthesis in the share name might be fouling up someone. XP forces the share name to this for some reason.
which run without errors but an attempt to mount throws up the above error as well as saying - you must specify the file type (tried that) - and fails to mount. I've tried using YaST to format and encrypt it which throws up the same error when I run mount but actually does actually mount the filesystem Googling around has brought up info saying that it's probably a race condition brought on by invalid udev rules. I've got a (mostly) working system and the udev rules documentation leaves more confused than when I started.
I have installed live cd on usb pendrive. Everything works great. How can I find out which device driver it is using? Where are the device driver files stored? How do you specify the device driver when mounting a device?
an idea what might be wrong with fs 0x06 FAT16? I have a mobile, Sony Ericsson K750i, which was mounted in previous distributions without problems (up to 11.1). Now I use 11.2 and I am unable to mount it. I tried to do it via yast, but it says "non-existing or uknokwn file system" even it was recognized as 0x06 FAT16. I read that this fs is outdated, however still supported.
I know, running a script is pretty easy itself, but some people (family, gf) just hate using the terminal and assisting them remotely, you have no idea what they are really doing on the other side of the screen. This way, they can essentially just double click and enter their password. I was curious. How can I easily create a .deb package for this script:
I bought the Osmos game from the recent Humble Indie Bundle and I have placed the folder in /usr/games. I haven't installed it, the folder is executable as-is, but I have placed it in that address in order to be coherent with common game installations. I have created a shortcut of the executable file and placed it in the desktop.
If the game is executed through the shortcut it looks like the first screenshot, if it is executed through the original executable it looks like the second one (it works correctly). It also works correctly if the shortcut is in the same folder as the executable. This happens both with the 32 and 64 bits executables. I have a Radeon HD3870X2 and the open drivers in an Ubuntu 10.10 64 bits.
I'm trying to diagnose a weird problem ... maybe someone has an idea where to start. I'm having a problem with flash videos. The video part displays as if the fast-forward button is being held down; audio sounds correct.
I'm thinking "synchronization error" (duh!) but I'm not sure how to start to diagnose the issue. I'm running OpenSUSE 11.4 x64, and the problem shows up in both chrome and opera.
I'm running Lucid with the 2.6.32-28-generic and 2.6.31-11-rt(abogani's ppa) kernels, on a fairly new laptop.When I boot the rt-kernel, right after grub I get a message:Code:mount: mounting none on /dev failed: no such deviceW: devtmpfs not available, falling back to tmpfs for /devThen after a few seconds, I see a lot of fast moving text and then Ubuntu starts just fine.when booting the generic kernel, I don't see any text at all, but it uses just as long time as the rt-kernel, so I guess the problem affects both.
So I am using a debian 5.0.4 version of Linux with a command-line interface (the bash shell).I have been trying to get my usb device to be readable, which I suppose means I need to run a mount command like mount -t usbfs /dev/usb /media/usb But I have not had any luck getting to access my usb drive...I run lsusb and find that it is attached, I can find it in the /proc directory, but I cannot access my usb drive
Having some troubles mounting my DVD-RW after a reinstall of ubuntu. Now using 10.10. Code: root@Johnsky:/# wodim --devices wodim: Overview of accessible drives (1 found) : ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 0 dev='/dev/scd0'rwrw-- : 'HL-DT-ST' 'DVDRAM GH20NS10' ------------------------------------------------------------------------- So there's my scd0 sitting pretty. Trying to mount it.
Code: root@Johnsky:/# mount -a /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 mount: /dev/sr0: unknown device root@Johnsky:/# sr0?
Code: root@Johnsky:/# ls -l /dev/ total 0 .....
Lets try mounting sr0 directly instead. Code: root@Johnsky:/# mount -a /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0 mount: /dev/sr0: unknown device sr0 is still an unknown device.
I'm thinking when I reinstalled Ubuntu, it made some screwy links between devices. But I have no idea how to resolve this... and there's no point in my mind to adding the DVD-RW to /etc/fstab until I can actually mount it manually to know it mounts successfully. Back when I installed Ubuntu 9.x on this machine, I never had any of these issues. It picked up the DVD-RW automatically, appended it to fstab during installation, and done. But 10.10 seems to be having some troubles my 9.x installation didn't.
I recently had one of my computers motherboard die and so I moved the hard drive to another linux machine so I could access the data. The hard drive is installed correctly and I've mounted several logical volumes on the drive ok, but I'm having trouble with the two volumes which were encrypted. The LVM Gui in Fedora is ignorant to any encrypted LVMs so I looked around to see if others have solved this problem and found the following command: # cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/vg_delldesk/lv_home luks-fedora
My Logical volume container is vg_delldesk and the encrypted volume is lv_home - when I execute this command I get the following error: Device /dev/vg_delldesk/lv_home is not a valid LUKS device. I have access to the root partition from the old box so the config files are there to reference the old setup if needed. My current box is Fedora 14 x_64, I have dm_crypt mod installed in the kernel as well.
I have written a script to take backup of my database in remote server which is a windows machine.i have mounted that machine to my server using the script and daily script will run automatically, i have scheduled it using crontab like that and backup will be taken. but if my remote server is down means it gets unmounted and my backup falls on my local linux server itself. i want a script to check whether the remote server is mounted or not if mounted take the backup or else stop the backup.
actually we are using samba and that it was mounted in usb device which is read/write mode for sharing a file to all the system,it was properly working in half an hour,then after that it was automatically changed in read mode .if this problem occurs we are going to reboot the system then the problem will be resolved.
I just lost flash sound on my openSUSE 11.2 x86_64 desktop. I'm using the built-in HDA Intel audio, and I have sound in all other appliations (Amarok, mplayer, Minitube, ect) but not in Flash (I've tried Firefox and rekonq; no dice). I've never had issue with Flash sound before (hough I know many have) and I can't seem to find anything recent or relevant to my issue (most of the problems reference pulseaudio, which I, thankfully, do not have, or are for older versions of Flash).
I'd like to know where to start looking for this issue; it came up fairly recently (I don't use Flash all that often so I can't say when) and I have made no concious upgrades or changes that would affect it (though I do zypper dup pretty regularly). I updated to KDE 4.4 but I had Flash sound afterwards; I also tried downgrading the Flash player to 10.42 (instead of .45), but that didn't help. This issue is global (to all users on the system), so I don't think it's messed up configuration at the user level.
You need to know that these instructions work for anyone who has more than one way to play sound on the computer: For instance, I have a onboard sound card on my motherboard AND an ATI HD Video card that produces HDMI sound.
I have tried putting the PCM to full levels this has not worked. This is a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.3. I wanted to install a stable version of Linux on my friends system. All other sounds and codecs are working well, except flash in Firefox. This is not a good example. Is there a command line mixer I could check the sound levels on. Like ALSAMIXER for Gnome but for KDE.
I need to capture from my webcam. It has a mic too.I can specify video input device as /dev/video0.I specified input audio device as /dev/dsp2 ( OSS device, corresponding to USB Webcam), Now VLC throws an error, "VLC is unable to open the MRL 'alsa:///dev/dsp2'. Check the log for details".Thinking it wants an alsa device, I specify device as /dev/snd/pcmC2D0c. (got it from kinfocenter and dolphin). Now again an error, "VLC is unable to open the MRL 'alsa:///dev/snd/pcmC2D0c'. Check the log for details.".I try with any device, the same error. I have added myself to audio device so that I can read/write to the mentioned devices.I see no way of switching VLC to use OSS. And I see no information (documentation on net) on it's expected device listing for audio.
