Ubuntu :: How To Mount Partition At Boot

May 17, 2011

I keep a separate partition for files and folders which I absolutely need for my college work. (I do this because I had accidentally wiped my /home partition while upgrading Linux before)

Anyway, I want to know how to mount this partition at boot automatically .. I know I am supposed to append an entry to /etc/fstab but I am a lil apprehensive about doing this without a go-ahead from users here.code...

Ubuntu :: Set Up Boot Partition To Not Mount

Jun 19, 2010

I was reading this about setting up boot partition to not mount automatically. [URL]

Quote:

Some users don't want their /boot partition to be mounted automatically to improve their system's security. Those people should substitute defaults with noauto. This does mean that you need to manually mount this partition every time you want to use it. Add the rules that match your partitioning scheme and append rules for your CD-ROM drive(s), and of course, if you have other partitions or drives, for those too. Now use the example below to create your /etc/fstab: how to set up a boot partition.

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot - Need To Mount Encrypted Partition?

May 2, 2010

Times like this Ubuntu makes me want to pull my hair out. When I enter my pass on the login screen, it brings up a "Could not update ICEauthority file" error and then goes to a black screen. I've tried to fix this problem for the past 2-3 hours (searching google, these forums, etc) and at this point, I just want the data off my drive so I can restart with a fresh install of Ubuntu. I used the "gsku nautilus" command to mount the disk from a Ubuntu Drive boot, but it's not letting me have access to the encrypted drive. Does anyone know of a work around for this?

Ubuntu :: Can See Partition But Can't Mount - Boot Or Repair It

Jul 29, 2010

I just now re-installed 10.04 on my box, but now I can't get back into Windows. I'm getting the BOOTMGR not found error, that I'm familiar with, but the circumstances surrounding it are completely new to me. In the past I've encountered errors from hard-shutdowns where I couldn't mount the partition, until I checked it with windows first, but I can't boot into windows at all any more. I'm pretty sure my grub is pointing to the right location:

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount/boot Windows Partition?

Mar 19, 2010

Upon trying to boot Windows I got through the GRUB startup selections and then i get stuck at a black screen displaying "Starting Up. . ." That would be no problem, I just boot ubuntu instead and mount the partition to access the programs I'm looking for. Now I get an interesting error message:

"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00150000 size: 4096 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 1040: Invalid argument Actual VCN (0x15000011d92501) of index buffer is different from expected VCN (0x1). Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details."

I would run chkdsk in windows if I could, but that's my problem in the first place.

Fedora :: Mount The Ext4 Partition At Boot?

Jun 17, 2011

I'm trying to set up my Fedora 15 installation to automatically mount (with all privileges needed for read/write access w/o a password prompt) an ext4 partition on the same HDD. Below is the output of sudo fdisk -l.

Code:

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders, total 312581808 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes

[code]....

Partition table entries are not in disk order I'm trying to automount /dev/sda8, I believe. I'll check that when I've rebooted to by Ubuntu partition, 'cause that's where I know how to do it. I tried to use pysdm, since that's what I used to do the same thing in Ubuntu, but it wasn't found by the Fedora package manager.

Should I specify a partition for /, /boot, /home, /tmp, ...etc? Or it is ok to make mount point '/'?

Apr 29, 2011

I want to automatic mount a ntfs partition after start. I work on fstab, everything seems to be ok, but now something strange is happening: sometimes after boot, when I use fdisk, I find all the partitions as sda, sometims they seems to appear as sdb. Of course, if in fstab I have written sda and they are sdb, they will not be aoutomount... I am using fedora 14 I was expecting that allways the partitions to be sda or sdb.

Slackware :: Stale NFS File Handle Mount Error On Non NFS Boot Partition

Sep 10, 2010

When I run lilo (/sbin/lilo), it messes up my /boot partition. Next time I try to mount it after running lilo, I get an error: "mount: Stale NFS file handle" (I define -t ext2). My /boot partition is ext2, mounted locally, and not nfs. Then I do fsck /dev/sda1, and I get several: Free blocks count wrong for group #0 (7665, counted=5063). Fix<y>? I say yes to all and it works normally afterwards. This happens only after I run lilo. Lilo is installed in MBR.

Here is relevant configuration:
Code:
root@darwin:/home/cabrilo# cat /etc/lilo.conf
append=" vt.default_utf8=0"
boot = /dev/sda

bitmap = /boot/slack.bmp
bmp-colors = 255,0,255,0,255,0
bmp-table = 60,6,1,16
bmp-timer = 65,27,0,255

prompt
timeout = 30
change-rules
reset
vga = normal
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/sda3
label = Linux
read-only
This is my partition table:

Code:
root@darwin:/home/cabrilo# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x8f800200

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 13 104422 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 14 144 1052257+ 82 Linux swap
/dev/sda3 145 3432 26410860 83 Linux
/dev/sda4 3433 19457 128720812+ 83 Linux

And this is my fstab:
Code:

/dev/sda2 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sda3 / ext4 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda1 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2

Fedora :: Mount 15 Partition - Suddenly Shut Down During An Update - System Won't Boot Anymore

Aug 8, 2011

I recently switched from fedora 14 to 15. Today my computer suddenly shut down during an update, as I thought it overheated I decided to clean the cooling system and reapply thermal paste. However, now the system won't boot anymore ("kernel panic - not syncing : VFS: unable to mount root FS on unknown-block").

I would like to either solve this booting problem, or mount the fedora 15 filesystem and recover some files. Whichever is easier.

I have another drive with fedora 14 (antec below) which boots fine:

Ubuntu Installation :: Mount Or Not To Mount - Can't Create A Partition

Jan 2, 2010

I've just bought a HP mini compaq laptop. The laptop doesn't have any CD/DVD "reader". So i was forced to download the .iso file to install ubuntu in addition to Windows XP that was present when i bought it. To do so i used UNetbootin, and i used my only hard disk as a live CD. But when i wanted to install ubuntu, they told me to create a partition. The problem is that i can't. I have only one partition sda1(nfst) which covers the whole stockage memory, and an empty space(8Mo). I can't acceed to any of the resizing or modifying options to edit the nfst partition. The only options are manage flags and umount. When i click on this one, they tell me : # umount /cdrom : cdrom is busy.

Fedora Installation :: Dual Boot "Error 17: Cannot Mount Selected Partition"

Mar 29, 2009

I have a vista machine I recently put FC10 on. Through the course of figuring out wireless drivers, I goofed it enough that I was told to simply reinstall linux. I had the fedora GRUB file set as I wanted. But after I re-installed FC10 it would just hang after it searched for bootable CDs and stuff. I got the super grub CD and am able to boot into windows no issue. HOWEVER, when I select the fedora option, I get

"Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition"

I assume this means the grub doesn't know where my Linux boot stuff is. I have a separate drive dedicated to the linux install. The Vista drive is where the MBR is. So... how do I tell the grub where the FC10 install is? I've tried to reinstall FC10 twice hoping I just goofed something. edit: The standard grub file was in /boot/grub or something. Is there a file I can edit to point in the right direction?

Fedora Installation :: 13 Boot Up Fail Error 17 "cannot Mount Selected Partition"?

May 28, 2010

When upgrading F12 to F13 I had a fatal error when I selected to update grub so I opted to do a fresh install of grub and the upgrade proceeded without any further problems. When I went to boot the system (dual-boot with Win 7) grub gave me error 17 "cannot mount selected partition". So I booted into rescue from the install disk thinking that maybe reinstalling grub might help, but when I ran "grub-install /dev/sda" I got the message that "/dev/sda does not have any corresponding BIOS drive" (I have Windows on SATA 1 sda and Fedora on SATA 2 sdb). I exited rescue mode rebooted entered BIOS and swapped the drive order and restarted. Success!... Well almost. The progress bar goes all the way across the screen to the point the login screen should come up then it hangs...

Debian :: Mount Sshfs At Startup - Get Mount For UserA To Happen On Boot

Mar 18, 2011

I am struggling with getting an sshfs mount mounted on system boot. I have a script that mounts the sshfs for "userA". When userA runs the script all is well - user A can access the remote filesystem, root user can't see it as expected. The basic command is: sshfs userA@remote host:/home/userA /home/userA/mountdir -p 21212 -o password_stdin < passwordfile. I can prepend the sshfs command in the script with su - userA -c and when I run this script logged in as root all is well, userA has access and all is well. If I then put this script in /etc/init.d and reference it properly in the rc. directories the mount doesn't happen. If I prepend the sshfs command with sudo, same thing. Logged in as root I can run the script and UserA has access. Run the script in /etc/init.d during startup and the mount doesn't happen. Echoing text to a log file shows that the script is being executed but no mount happens.

Ubuntu :: Use A Windows-based Recovery Partition On A Dual-boot Computer To Overwrite Partition And Remove GRUB Loader?

Mar 9, 2010

is it possible to use a Windows-based recovery partition on a dual-boot computer to overwrite the Ubuntu partition and remove the GRUB loader? For instance, if you booted up your computer, accessed the hidden recovery partition and used it to reset the computer to it's factory default settings, would that effectively remove the Ubuntu partition and the GRUB loader? Would a completely new installation of Windows overwrite/uninstall Ubuntu and GRUB automatically?

Ubuntu :: GPT Partition Label Has No BIOS Boot Partition?

Jun 24, 2011

When I installed Ubuntu on my system (a year or so ago) I forgot to add a BIOS Boot Partition. This is something of a problem considering that the partition type for my 2TB drive is GPT. Hence, whenever grub is updated I get a warning:

Code:
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: This GPT partition label has no BIOS Boot Partition; embedding won't be possible!.
/usr/sbin/grub-setup: warn: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are UNRELIABLE and its use is discouraged..
Installation finished. No error reported.

[Code]....

If so, what is the rough sequence of commands to create the partition (without disturbing what is already there) and then setting it as a BIOS boot partition.
