Ubuntu Installation :: Directories Requires To Mount Drives?
Feb 23, 2010
Since I never got an answer to my last question:I'll ask something simpler. When Ubuntu is booting up, what directories are used for the boot process up until it mounts other drives (such as an SD card).hink that question makes sense,don't hesitate to ask forclarification, though.
I have two non-system drives with archive files. Each drive is formatted with one primary partition only, occupying all the drive space. In each drive there will be a number of directories with files in them, like this:
After a bit of a rough install, I got 10.04 up and running on an Intel D845GRG motherboard. All seems to be working fine except for USB flash drives. My USB mouse and keyboard work fine, but the two sticks I have (Kingston and PQI) will not mount.
I installed 10.10 on my workstation but now my system refuses to mount two existing two data drives that were already there... sudo mount /dev/sdc /mnt/data-b gives me: mount: unknown filesystem type 'isw_raid_member'
I didn't change any BIOS settings... My BIOS is not configured for RAID at all, that setting reads AHCI, which should be okay for my kernel (using the stock 2.6.35-24).
I tried to force mount one of the drives with sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/sdc /mnt/data-b
but this gives me an even stranger message: "/dev/sdc already mounted or /mnt/data-b busy (neither of them are true...)
It's mainly the "isw_raid_member" thing that troubles me... I didn't and don't have a RAID system at all..
a few days a go I got Samba messed up and I decided to just reinstall Ubuntu. Ubuntu resides on an 80GB drive and I have 2 1.0 TB drives that I use for storage. At one time (pre-Ubuntu) they were connected to a VIA SATA RAID card and I had them on a software RAID under Windows XP. Both worked absolutely fine under Ubuntu 10.04 (which had bee progressively upgraded from the original install of 9.04.
Now, both drives have been given the same label, and neither one will mount because the file system type is reported as "via_raid_array" rather than the EXT4 that they both should be. TestDisk can read them and identifies the partition as a Linux partition, and the data seems to be there. I have even reformatted one of them and still, it will not mount.
I use truecrypt to encrypt a file containing my sensitive data (credit card numbers, bank account info, etc).
When I mount my encrypted file through truecrypt, I enter the password for my file. That's OK - I want to keep it that way. But when it gets mounted as a file system, ubuntu also requires that I enter the 'su' password.
I have recently set up an ubuntu installation on an old PC. After some fiddling with both it, and the windows 7 machine, I have managed to share all of my drives. However, when attempting to access them from ubuntu, only 2 of the 4 hard disk shares will mount, with the other 2 failing with a Unable to mount location, failed to mount windows share error message.
If I try to mount the AUFS filesystem from a nfs and local directory in Ubuntu 9.10 like this:Code: sudo mount -t aufs br=/mnt/nfs=rw:/home/data/local=ro none /mnt/union.I get segmentation fault and my system crashes: Code: comm: file 2 is not in sorted order mount: block device none is write-protected, mounting read-only Segmentation fault.Am I doing something wrong or is it a bug?
I'm looking for a way to mount remote ftp directories to local filesystem in order to interact with them as if were local resources. I found several tutorials that recommend curlftpfs, but this project seems no longer maintained (last update on sourceforge goes back to Apr 2007).
So, is curlftpfs still the best choice or is there something newer which I could rely on?
I've spent some time searching for answers to this and I haven't found much at all.Please feel free to post pointers to other threads that discuss this particular problem, if you find any.The problem is that in bash I want to mount an iso file to inspect the contents with the command:Code:sudo mount myCD.iso CDMount -o loopThe command works fine, but pressing tab to complete either the iso filename or the CDMount directory does not work. The completion suggestions I get are existing mountpoints which The completion suggestions should include the files and directories in the current directory. This worked with Ubuntu 10.04 and not with 11.04.
Hi Linux Forum People! This is my first post. Somehow I'm not able to mount directories from other machine using autofs. Autofs maps successfully loaded into NIS client, but autofs does not recognize them. Please see belowI'm running RHEL4
Just moved to Ubuntu from XP. Whole process has gone very smoothly, but left with a small problem (i.e. it isn't actually affecting usability) that I don't seem to be able to fix and can't find on forums/internet. I also have a problem with the Floppy drive, but I've seen that problem elsewhere in the forums.
It's a dual boot system with both NTFS and Ext4 drives. All are visible and fully accessible. I decided to convert one of the NTFS drive to Ext4. That appeared to be successful and was successfully remounted as an Ext4 drive. The drive label is "Data". I did have a bit of a problem getting it remounted so that I could see/use it under my log-in as opposed to just under root. It's at this point I think that I did something to create the problem.
I now have two entries for "Data" in drop down menu for Places. The true one is shown as a standard hard drive icon, but the false one is shown as a different icon - possibly an external drive icon (note that the floppy drive is also showing as the same icon and I can't access that, but I've seen that's a problem elsewhere in the forums).
I can write and read to the true "Data" hard drive. If I click on the other false "Data" icon, I get the message "mount: /dev/sdd1 already mounted or /media/Data busy mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdd1 is already mounted on /media/Data". If unmount the true drive and try to mount the false drive, the system mounts the true drive instead. If I log into nautilus as root, neither the false data drive or the floppy appear in the left hand panel.
i have recently setup and installed Ubuntu 9.04 on a virtulal drive usingVMWare 6.04, installed the desktop gui as well, I need to add other drives for data and loggng, which I did in the VMWare side. I can see the 2 drives in ubuntu, but can not access them, I get he unable to mount location when I try. How can resolve this please as I need these to virtual drives to be used as data drives.
I'm trying to configure a per user samba login for full access to the user's home directory.Mounting the shared directory works flawless when mounting from Windows. I can read, write, create without problems. However, when mounting from Linux the shared space is readonly.
ubuntu 9.10 when I try to mount internal drivereceive the following massage Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:Remounting is not supported at present. You have to umount volume and then mount it once again
I tried setting up my own partition table which apparently didn't go well.I have 1 compactflash-disk for linux and 2 hard drives for data which are set up for RAID1. But the RAID-drives doesn't get mounted.This is my first RAID-setup
Code: me@server:~$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
I like the 20 second boot from press of power button with my new install, BUT I can't mount drives with xfce's thunar. I can mount them with thunar but this way they still do not show up under places or on my desktop. How do I figure out how to mount them properly?
The other one mounts fine. They are all separate physical drives. Another oddity is in that it lists those two drives which are SATA as PATA, but I imagine that is something to do with my BIOS settings being on compatibility settings.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my machine as dual boot using WUBI but on a seperate partition to Windows. Loving it so far, but i cannot get any external drives to mount - i've tried pen drives, camera memory cards and hard drives but nothing comes up.
I have just tried restarting with a pen drive plugged in, and it finally showed something in the computer folder - "memory stick drive" is shown (and my internal CD drive, which i'm not sure was there before.), but i still can't access it and when I try to unmount it gives me the message
Error detaching: helper exited with exit code 1: Detaching device /dev/sdc USB device: /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-1) SYNCHRONIZE CACHE: FAILED: No such file or directory (Continuing despite SYNCHRONIZE CACHE failure.) STOP UNIT: FAILED: No such file or directory
I have an Acer Aspire 3500 laptop that I'm running 10.04 on, pretty much everything works OK, and I don't appear to have any hardware problems (I've checked using Gnome Device Manager). When I plug in a USB flash or hard drive, I don't get any drives/devices to mount, although in Gnome Device Manager the USB device appears as a USB Mass Storage Device.
Running tail -f /var/log/messages produces this:

I'm trying to install ubuntu on a hp with windows XP. When i go to run it, it says it requires 256 MB but only 254 MB is available. I checked my computer and I have about 9.94 GB of RAM. I'm kind of lost here.
Can't mount external usb drives. There are no errors, they just don't show up anywhere.
Also Trash icon has disappeared from bottom panel, is inaccessible from Nautilus - "Sorry, could not display all the contents of "trash": Operation not supported" - and Desktop icons default to 'Keep Aligned' every time I restart.
etc/fstab with a flash drive and an external HDD plugged in code...
