Ubuntu Networking :: Drive Looks Different When Mounted Remotely
Dec 18, 2010
I have two machines. Desktop and X61s. I have a drive on Desktop called Ianthe. This is in /media. This is remotely mounted on my X61s machine (a laptop), as /media/Ianthe. It automounts when I boot it up. BUT, the same drive looks different when viewed on the remote machine. An example is a certain directory, which when viewed on Desktop has 21 files in it, but when viewed on X61s has on 7 files in it.
If, on the X61s machine, I go to Network > Windows Network > LBBARNET > DESKTOP > Ianthe and navigate to the relevant folder, I can see all 21 items. But if I mount it, I can only see the 7. I have tried rebooting X61s, but it remains the same. The permissions on all the files in the folder on Desktop are identical, so I can't see any permission reason why this should happen. And, if I copy one of the files on the Desktop which doesn't appear on mounted view on X61s then the copied version appears immediately on both views.
The why behind this is a little long winded so let me get to the technical question. I have a 16 GB SD card in my netbook as additional storage to the 16 GB SSD drive. The SD card is formatted fat32 (by a utility from sdcard.org which is supposed to and does make the card read and write faster than if it was formatted by the OS). The card mounts when I login to the netbook. The entry from mtab shows
ken@taylor13:/media$ ls -l drwx------ 3 ken ken 32768 1969-12-31 19:00 SD16
sudo chmod 777 SD16 does not change the permissions.
The problem is I need to connect to the machine with a different user (due to a security hole in gnome-commander). As the card is formatted fat I cannot assign group permissions to it and my second user cannot access it.
I had previously had the card formatted as ext3 and it was so slow as to be unusable. It needs to be formatted fat. I am stumped.
I am using centOS-5, I have mount NTFS drive by using fuse. But there is no rights and even there is no option on right click to make new directory or to del any file or folder. This is line of fstab for NTFS drive
How can I get full access and control on this NTFS mounted drive.
so after searching and reading, and searching some more, im stuck. i cant seem to get a mounted thumb drive to give write access. first thing to know is that, im using a seagate dockstar with a primary thumb drive[sda1] booting debian and samba.
i guess you could say im still in the testing phase, just trying to make sure files can be shared, mounted and accessed by users. the problem is stated as the title. i have successfully shared a folder in sda1 with rw access, but i cant do the same for the second drive[sdb1].
for sda1 with rw access, here are the smb.conf settings:
Code: [shared] path = share available = yes valid users = mark
I'm not terribly new to Linux, but I am new to the forums, so hear me out! I am in the process of creating an electronic mapwall for our meteorology program, and have designed the computing system from scratch. I have two Linux Boxes, each with capabilities for 6 attached monitors...a total of 12 displays driven from two machines. My intention is to have one machine be the master...it has a touchpanel control. The inputs to the touchpanel will then trigger events for the both the master and the slave machine to display. Each of them has a specific IP address (DNS entry), and are not on a subnet.
Now...is there a way to remotely login to the slave machine and have it display on it's OWN monitors? The code is Java and which works on the master machine to animate directories of .gifs for each of the master's attached monitors. I will most likely have Java execute shell commands for the remote login (ssh), but I believe the answer lies somewhere in the X-configuration. Do I have the machines in an adverse configuration (creation of a subnet would be better)? Lots of questions...lots of desire...few answers!
I have just installed Xubuntu and suprisingly it did not ask me to create a partition within its installer like Ubuntu does. So now, I am left with 150mb of free space. I want to expand that amount. The problem is, I do not know where it has been installed on. I have a C and an E drive. Currently, the C drive is mounted and the E drive will not mount even if i press the mount button. Does anyone have a solution?
I finished installing Lucid (Ubuntu 10.04) on two desktop PCs formerly running Windows XP. Both installs went like a charm.Machine A has an external USB drive connected to it that I previously used for MS Windows backups. I can see the contents of the external drive from A's "file explorer" and navigate its directories. I would like to have machine B auto-mount A's external USB drive.A while back, I did something similar with a RedHat host that would automount a connection to an external USB drive shared by a MS Windows machine. My "/etc/fstab" was updated to mount a CIFS share.
I used CIFS since RedHat does not support NTFS, which is the format of USB drive. It worked perfectly.Can I do the same thing or is there a simple way? I am thinking that I may need to setup NFS server and client but I am not sure.Is there a how-to on NFS and Ubuntu?
i have an archos av500 dvr which would look like a usb harddrive when plugged in. thats good for me since i can modify dvr-timer.txt when i am not home. the problem is when it is plugged into my pc the dvr functionality doesnt work (it still acts like a harddrive). is there something i can do that will disable power to the usb port? umount wont do what i need. i dont know how to disable libusb? the only thing that would work is sudo shutdown -h now but i wouldnt be able to access my server.
My cdrom drive was working until yesterday it didn't mount at all. It said 'special device /dev/scd0 does not exist'. I went and checked in BIOS and the CD rom was not identified there as well I would like to know if there is a workaround for this problem. I am using an ACER aspire 4520 laptop with only ubuntu 9.10 on i
I am an entrepreneur/design engineer so I do a lot modeling, rendering, etc and lot of my programs can only run in Windows. I have a fully licensed version of XP that I want to install on the computer and wondering if it is possible to do the following: Partition a portion of the drive for XP. (VMware isn't the greatest as you lose your 3D acceleration, so I definitely want to do the partition) Install my programs and ensure they run. Use the machine as a virtual desktop remotely?
Whenever I right-click on a mounted usb drive, I have the option to "safely remove" it. However, it I choose this option, I inevitably get the following error message:
Unable to stop drive Error detaching: helper exited with exit code 1: Detaching device /dev/sdb USB device: /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.0/usb1/1-1/1-1.6) SYNCHRONIZE CACHE: synchronize cache(10): Fixed format, current; Sense key: Key=9 Additional sense: Logical unit not ready, cause not reportable Info fld=0x0  FAILED: No such file or directory (Continuing despite SYNCHRONIZE CACHE failure.) STOP UNIT: start stop unit: transport: Host_status=0x07 [DID_ERROR] Driver_status=0x00 [DRIVER_OK, SUGGEST_OK] FAILED: No such file or directory
I'm currently using Lucid, but this happened on Karmic as well. The way I see it, the result I would like would be either: 1. The "safely remove drive" command just unmounts the drive (I can't imagine what else it does anyways, besides give me this stupid error) 2. There is no "safely remove drive" option.
I have been having the hardest time with this. I am trying to mount a share on a Ubuntu 10.04 system from another Ubuntu 10.04 system.
The system with the share has the OS on one drive and then data on a second internal sata drive that is mounted. The share is on this second drive.
I can see it when I browse networking from the other system but it won't mount. I get a message saying that the folder contents can't be displayed. I do not have permissions necessary to view the contents...
I have tried setting the share folder permissions as permissive as possible but can't get passed it.
I use davfs2 to mount a Webdav drive at startup. It mounts correctly and I have read access to all files my account gives me access to. One big problem though: I can't create of modify any file. I know it is not a user account problem because everything works well when I mount the drive in Windows 7 using WebDrive.
Here's the entry in /etc/fstab to automatically mount the drive:
I am trying to access a mounted secondary drive through FTP, and when I try to connect to it I am not able to see any of its contents. Any suggestions? I am using Gadmin-proftp to configure. I can point it to any other folder on the main drive and see it perfectly.
I observed a problem with the Yahoo Mail Attachments.If I want to attach a file from a drive that's mounted (one of my windows partitions), the file who I attach to mail seems attached but after I send the mail the recipients do not receive my file. First I thought it was a mistake, but then it happened several times. Does anyone know any workarounds except copying the files who you want to send to an Linux drive and then sending it from that location?
How do you find the device (e.g. /dev/*) for a mounted USB drive in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? I'm trying to format a Cruzer USB flash drive, and when I plug it in, the icon for the mounted filesystem appears on my desktop. However, when I open GParted, it doesn't list the filesystem as an option to partition.
The recommendations I've found through Google include monitoring tail -f /var/log/messages, which they claim should list the device name when the drive is mounted, but this never happens for me. I've also read that the USB drive would usually be linked to /dev/sdb, but this appears as a broken link on my filesystem. How else would I find the device?
About every couple of days, my linuxfiles mount will disconnect. I notice this because I have created a symbolic link from my user's home folder to this drive. So when I log in, if the drive isn't mounted I get the following errors:
Quote: Could not update ICEauthority file /home/johnathan/.ICEauthority Quote:There is a problem with the configuration server. (usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)
I keep having to remove the mount folder and then readd it. Then I have to reapply the permissions for it to connect back to those files. How can I correct this? This only happens to this mount, the others stay connected with no issue. Also, when I log in and I have this issue... I cannot get out of this or log off unless I shutdown my laptop... is there another way? I guess I could do an init 3 from the CL.
I just got ubuntu installed for the first time, I tried mounting my hard drive to my desktop so i can have easy access to it, but when i restart ubuntu it always dissapears and i have to go to places then click on the hard drive again to mount it to my desktop.
Is there a way of keeping this on the desktop without having to do this all the time? I have the latest ubuntu version.
I am running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS with Kernel 2.6.32-22-generic-pae I was originally using usbmount to autmont the western digital external usb drive I had attached to the system and it was working great. However, while I was adding files to the drive i deleted all of the directories and files that came on the drive out of box such as 'autorun.inf' and an autorun directory containing an icon for the drive.. when I rebooted the drive was no longer mounted, I tried to un/reinstall usbmount a few times but it still didnt work, so I wound up adding the drive into my fstab, my fstab line reads like this
I have a secondary harddrive that is auto mounted through fstab at startup in the /mnt/media_drive folder. I have not had any problems out of it until today.
I was trying to get the computer to act as a PS3 media server. I installed pms-linux, couldn't get it working, removed that, installed ushare, didn't like that, uninstalled that and reinstalled pms-linux. Now the PS3 sees the folder, but nothing else does. When I ls -l the /mnt/media_drive folder, I get this:
What happens when you wipe a hard drive which has a partition that is mounted? I was using ubuntu 9.10 live CD but I had one partition on a hard drive mounted. Then, I started to wipe the entire hard drive with random characters using dd. Only later I realized that I hadn't unmounted that partition. what could have happened? Could the Live CD have been damaged?
I've some icons of mounted devices on my desktop. I want to display only some of them which I need. All drives are mounted automatically while booting or by scripts while logging in.For example: I've 4 mounted devices and 4 icons on my desktop and I want to have 4 mounted devices but only 2 icons.There is possibility of hiding all of icons in gconf, but I want to hide only some of them.Is it possible?
I'm facing some issues with mounting the cd and usb stick in Gnome: once the hotplug device is discovered Gnome displays multiple lot (5+) notification windows (i.e asking about the opening application) and also causing Dbus errors like: "DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending".
Ubuntu just mounts once, no issues like mentioned above. This is standard 11.3 installation, where should I look for the cause?
For some reason, the second hard drive (sdb1) is not automatically mounted:
rick@rab-1:/mnt$ sudo fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 500.0 GB, 499989348352 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60786 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x000c17f6
Before I installed Ubuntu, I installed the RAID software to handle 4 500 GB hard drives - so there are supposed to be two mirrored drives. I'm not an expert in using RAID. I'm assuming it is correctly configured. I only "see" two drives. sda has Ubuntu etc. How can I get sdb1 mounted? I've tried using the palimpsest program but I'm afraid I screw it up. Do I need to re-format sdb1?
I have a line in the fstab file which automatically mounts a network drive every time I start up Ubuntu. I browse to a text file on the network drive and open it using gEdit and make changes to it. Then, when I hit the save button, a bright red warning appears:
Could not save the file [path here] gedit cannot handle file: locations in write mode. check that you typed the location correctly and try again. This also happens if I do save as. Then, after this error appears, the file actually disappears (gets deleted) from the network drive and in order to save it, I have to select save as again and type in the original filename. The line in my fstab file is:
Hard drive is connected to my Inspiron 1525 via USB, plugged in and I'm not seeing the new drive mounted. Restart doesn't fix things and manually trying to mount /dev/sdb1 doesn't work either. The drive I got is preformatted as NTFS and I've been using a logical partition formatted as NTFS as a sort of share drive between my Windows partition and Ubuntu partition, so I know I have NTFS set up properly. This is the hard drive I'm working with for reference.
My old server machine running Ubuntu 6 experienced hardware failure, so I built a new machine with spare parts and decided to install 10.10. I used the 2 HDDs from the old machine and decided to use existing partitions for the 10.10 installation. I specified the existing partitions on a 250 GB PATA drive for root, /boot, /home, and swap. For some reason when I booted up 10.10 for the first time, the other HDD (750 GB SATA) was mounted as /boot. I never specified the second drive to be used for anything during the installation, so I have no idea why this happened.and how can I change the mount point for /boot? I would like the highlighted partition in the attached screenshot to be /boot. I really hope nothing on the 750 GB drive was overwritten in this whole process, because it contains all of my photo and video backup.
