Ubuntu Installation :: The Ext4 File System Creation In Partition Failed?

Feb 11, 2011

I have a Dell Mini 9 netbook. The SSD took a dump, so I ordered a Super Talent 16gb replacement. I put it in yesterday, tried to install 10.10 and constantly get errors. The first error, which I haven't had since, was [ERROR 30] Read-only File System. The install obviously failed. Wondering if perhaps the file got messed up in translation, I redownloaded 10.10, reformatted the flash drive (sandisk cruizer 4gb), put 10.10 back on via the program on the Ubuntu site. No luck, but no longer the [error 30]. Tried again using Unetbootin, no luck. Rinse repeat a few times, no errors just a working cursor spinning and spinning and spinning and spinning and.. you get it.

Tried to put WinXP on it just because I was that frustrated, no luck.

Now I'm back to Ubuntu (because let's face it, who wants to deal with Windows, christ they make it so complicated). I'm currently using 10.04 because I was hoping (praying) it might just be a 10.10 thing.

No such luck, now it goes to step 7/7, starts, and 5% of the way thry "creating ext4 file system" it says "the ext4 file system creation in partition #1 (0,0,0)(sda) failed." I have checked the SSD in the Disk Utility, SMART tests are clean. I have gone to terminal and run fdisk and had a smarter person than me look at the copypasta, no errors, I have deleted all existing partitions in gparted and started fresh. I have tried the auto partitioning, I have tried manual, I am going insane. Literally insane. My preschooler thinks I've leaped off the deep end.

Could it be my flash drive? Could the SSD be defective despite the tests coming back clean? What do I need to type into terminal? Is there a way to entirely entirely entirely wipe the SSD to make it fresh-out-the-box clean? I will happily provide whatever you need if it means I can get my husband off my back about this stupid netbook with its stupid tiny keyboard.

Ubuntu Installation :: The Ext4 File System Creation Fails On Single Partition (no Raid)

May 14, 2010

I can't seem to get past step 6 of he installation of Ubuntu 10.04. I get the error: The ext4 file system creation failed... on single partition (no raid). I chose ' / ' as the mount point, and have tried with and without a swap drive. I'm installing on a Sony VAIO VGN-NS160D, and the HDD was previously formatted to NTFS. There's no other OS so I don't see any way of getting a command line to try a sudo fdisk..

Software :: Get File Creation Time (Ext4, Ntfs-3g)?

Jun 14, 2010

I know newer filesystems support crtime values, even to nanoseconds granularity. Ext4 does it, and NTFS mounted via ntfs-3g should expose it. Still, what is the command to get these values??

getfattr -d <some file>

gives me zero results, and as far as I know ls does not have means to access creation time.

getfattr -n ntfs_crtime /mnt/<some ntfs fs> gives me "Operation not opermitted"..?

I know about the difference between ctime=inode change time and crtime=creation time/file birth time. I want to migrate a NTFS partition to Ext4 without losing the creation dates...

Ubuntu Installation :: Why The File System Creation Fails

Aug 8, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu alongside windows 7 on my machine, and currently I am having difficulty doing so.Upon initial boot of the LiveCD,it says the installer has encountered an unrecognized error and just goes straight to desktop environment. From there, I can restart the installer just fine but here is where the trouble starts.

Currently, I have a 2TB RAID 0 array utilizing 4 500GB Seagate barracuda SATA II drives. The controller is an nForce 780a NVRaid. I currently have two NTFS partitions for windows. One 150GB primary partition for C:, and another 781GB D: for the storage of games, music and movies.When I try to manually setup the partitions in the Ubuntu installer, I do it like this.

- 200MB ext2 primary partition for /boot
- 150GB xfs logical partition for /
- approx 750GB xfs logical partition for /home (You've probably figured out I'm following the same C: and D: scheme as in windows)
- 8192 MB partition for swap

I then proceed with the install. I see the progress bar complete for the boot partition, but then at about 7% for / it stops and gives a message saying partition creation has failed. I even tried using different filesystems like ReiserFS and Ext4. Same thing every time. I am running a 64bit quadcore system BTW if that is of any importance.

Ubuntu Installation :: File System Creation Fails At 5%?

Jun 16, 2011

net book had some issues with windows, so i had to format its hard drive. i put in the ubuntu live image (usb) (yes i md5summed it, its fine) and i tried installing it using the guided partition (using the whole disk) and i tried setting it up manually, but regardless of what i try, when it attempts to format it to the necessary filesystem, it fails at 5% without fail. even IF i use GParted.

General :: Recover Files From Ext4 File System Overwritten By New Installation

Jul 3, 2011

My main hard disk died and I replaced it. After installing windows in a small partition in /dev/sda, I thought I will try linux mint and went for it. (I need windows to play AOE, but ubuntu is my primary OS)I didnt see the options properly or some distraction, I choose the "install alongside windows" option probably expecting it to install it in the unallocated partition next to the windows installation. I had completely forgotten my second internal drive /dev/sdb which has the backup data. Linux mint went and installed itself on that drive.

Is there a way to recover individual files from the second harddrive. Now if I boot or open it through live cd, all I see in the linux mint file systems. I want to aleast recover my CV/resume from the second drive. The second drive is a single ext4 file system The old drive is completely dead, it doesnt even get recognized when I attach it to SATA.

General :: Creation Of Swap Partition During Ubuntu 9.10 Installation

Mar 26, 2010

When I do a "clean" install of Ubuntu 9.10, Step 5 of 7 is when you choose how to partition your hard drive. My Acer Aspire Desktop has 8GB of RAM and a single 160GB SATA hard drive. If I choose to let Ubuntu do the partitioning, only three partitions are created and one of them IS a Swap partition. However, if I choose the second option to manually create my own partition tables, there is NO Swap option listed in the drop-down list of partitions to create!! Why in the world not, considering the importance of this partition and the fact that the first option DOES automatically create it? A second related (I think) is about the Live System Rescue CD and GParted 4.9. When do you use either of these utilities? After all, GParted is included System Rescue CD.

So, if I want and choose to do a manual/advanced partitioning of my hdd, the only time I can see using either utility is after the complete installation of the Ubuntu distro. Yet, choosing to manually partition my hard drive always results in an error or warning message that I haven't created a Swap partition before proceeding to Step 6 of the installation. Well, of course not since the choice isn't even possible. Good grief, what am I supposed to do when I arrive at the step where I am supposed to choose and then create the partitions for my hdd? Choose the first option, which I don't think is wise/good at all, especially with security in mind. Or choose the second option of using a program like GParted at all? It is hard enough for me to choose a partitioning scheme at all, since opinions on how many partitions are needed and what sizes they should be.

Ubuntu :: Make A Partition Of The /home Folder NTFS And The System Ext4?

Apr 27, 2011

I have one computer with windows and one with ubuntu. I have an external drive (FAT32) with files taken from an NTFS (mp3s and such) and I would like to put them and use them on an ext4 ubuntu platform. Can I make a partition of the /home folder NTFS and the system ext4 and function properly? I do have configuration files in the /home folder since Im building a domain controller that utilizes samba on ubuntu: would I be better off using a dual boot with windows/ubuntu and placing the files on the Windows partition? what is my best option?>

Ubuntu :: Ext4 File System Hosed After 11 Upgrade (duplicate Directory & File Names)?

May 8, 2011

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11 and a few days later my ecryptfs filesystem began misbehaving in a weird way. In my home directory, many subdirectory names are duplicated verbatim. Here's an ls -F excerpt:

Desktop/
Desktop/
Documents/
Documents/
Downloads/
Downloads/

I can no longer access files in those directories (if I ls the directory, it appears empty; I can cd to it, but there's nothing inside). Not all of the directories are duplicated/damaged like this, but most are. A few non-directory files are also duplicated in this fashion, so for example:

Debian :: Qemu - Windows 7 From Partition - Error ""Ramdisk Device Creation Failed Due To Insufficient Memory"

Sep 8, 2011

I'd like to learn it. So I installed lenny & grub2, after that win7, reconfigured grub2, upgraded to squeeze. All is fine, but I cant start working in Debian as I can work only in Windows.

If I try "qemu /dev/sda" I have grub 2 boot screen and when continue booting win7 I get "Ramdisk device creation failed due to insufficient memory" (as screen on [UR:]).

Fedora Installation :: Omega "Pug" Respin File System (ext4)?

Before I use up the bandwidth, can someone suggest if the file system default installation is ext 4, as in F11 live cd, or can one now choose ext 3. The reason I am asking is that mine is currently ext3, and I would not like to lose my /home partition, with all the stuff that has accumulated.

Ubuntu :: Ext4 File System ?

Aug 6, 2010

I'm trying to figure out why files in linux are oriented in the folders the way they are. In Windows it's much simpler to picture. You have program files (C:Program Files(x86), system files (C:Windows), user settings for programs or personal stuff(C:User), and some weird folder names. I was noticing that the Ubuntu ext4 filesystem is a little more complicated. Some folder names are self explanatory, but others are not. Is there a guide, or some reading material on the history of the linux filesystem and how it morphed into what is presently used in Ubuntu?

I am hoping for better success with it and will update. I was able to try MinGW with WINE before the first crash and I liked what I saw there. Only hoping to be able to get a good install this time.
