Debian Configuration :: Mount Smbshare At Boot Time?

Oct 13, 2010

A windows server named SRV is sharing folders for each users in /share/From a Debian computer on network logged with the user session "foo" I can mount the remote directory /share/foo with:smbmount //SRV/share/$LOGNAME /remote_directorythen the prompt ask me for password and when I have gave it the remote directory is mounted correctly.Now I would like to make this at boot time.If I put the same command in the .bashrc, when I boot, the remote directory is not mounted when the session is opened but then if I open a console, it ask me for password and the directory is mounted.This way is not convenient and it would be better if the directory is mounted when the user open his session and using the same password.The point is that every user should have a his own remote directory mounted when the session is opened.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mount The Disk And Enter The Password Each Time Boot Up

Mar 7, 2010

i'm trying to get everything working ok. i have installed ubuntu using wubi and i've found that i can access my files on my windows partition from ubuntu. to do this i have to mount the disk and enter the password each time i boot up, and i would like this to be done automatically. i was wondering if this was possible? i put in a link directly to the music folder on windows into my 'places' but it only appears once i have put the password in. its not a huge thing, but its one of those things which would make starting up my ubuntu a lot more conveniant.

Nov 20, 2010

Running Debian stable. I added the following command to rc.local and made it executable:mount -t cifs -o username=ted,password=computer,uid=mooreted,gid=users "// Volume" /mnt/vortexAfter rebooting dmesg throws the following error:

OpenSUSE Install :: Samba Shares Do Not Mount At Boot Time?

opesnSuse 11.1, linux x86_64 This host has two samba shares that are located on an OS/2 server. Neither mount at boot time but they do mount from the command line.

There are 5 other client computers that mount the same shares at boot time using almost (different user/pass info) identical data. I do not see what is different about this host.

Ubuntu :: Won't Mount Swap Space?

Feb 3, 2010

When i first installed ubuntu about 2 weeks i left about 30gb left for windows vista. I have not used vista at all so i decided to delete it and use the whole hard drive for ubuntu. I got the liveCD out and went into the partition editor on that (i had ubuntu,swap,vista in that order) and deleted the swap space and vista and increased the size of the Ubuntu partition to so there was only 4gb left for swap. I then booted up again from the hard drive and i get this message "one or mounts cannot be mounted" or something to that effect and it talks about the swap partition and offers to boot in recovery mode which does work.Once in recovery mode i go in and try and make swap partition with Disk Utility and i do that and it works. I go to restart Ubuntu to test it out and the same problem happens again, cannot mount swap ect. so i go back into Disk Utility and it now says 4gb Unrecognized instead of swap

Ubuntu Installation :: Swap Mount Point For 11.04 Beta?

Apr 16, 2011

I'm installing Ubuntu 11.04 beta and partitioning into 3 parts. One for root, one for home, and one for swap.In the partitioning utility you can go into during installation (at the beginning of installation actually) there is a drop down box for selecting the mount point of the partition. I'm good on the first two but am not sure what to select for swap. I'm searching on the Internet too but am not seeing what I need right off.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grow Boot Sector. Delete Swap Partition. Can't Boot Afterwards.

Mar 7, 2010

I'm running 9.10 off of a 4 GiB CF card. I keep running into space issues with updates, so I purchased an 8 GiB replacement card. I've cloned the 4 GiB card to a .IMG file using DD.I've then copied the 4 GiB image back to the 8 GiB card using the Ubuntu startup disk creator program. Once done, I'm able to properly boot off of the new 8 GiB clone.Unfortunately, the clone ends up with 3.67 GiB of unallocated space at the end *see attached). I tried deleting the "extended" partition that the swap is located at after booting from a Live CD and the system was unable to boot after this. I was thinking that I would delete the swap entirely and create a swap file after I merged the existing partitions, but I was unable to do this.

best way to do this (e.g. get one large 8 GiB partition with my old image on it)? I still have the original untouched 4 GiB card and also have an external CF drive if I need to redo the cloning. I've also used Clonezilla before, so perhaps there's a way to do this that allow me to grow the image as it's being cloned.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Installation Fails - Swap Does Not Mount

Sep 19, 2010

I had a problem with the install of Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.04.1 on a Dell Precision T3500. I used the 32bit live CD. I let the installer create the file systems and use the whole disc. The disc is was created as shown below. After the install button was pressed, the root file system was created and then the swap. When the installer went to mount the swap it complained there was not enough memory and failed the installation. I installed Ubuntu by manually making the swap file system smaller using gparted and assigning the / and swap to the file systems created by gparted.

Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250000000000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30394 cylinders

Ubuntu :: Swap Or Swap File On Flash Memory?

Aug 16, 2010

RAM for older machines like I use is fairly cheap these days. But flash memory is just as cheap or cheaper. So I'd like to ask about the feasibility of expanding my system's memory using flash memory. And about whether creating a partition for swap on the flash memory, or whether a swap file on the flash device, is the better way to go.

By flash memory I have in mind mainly USB sticks or what are sometimes called "pen drives." But I do also have CF and SD cards that, with the proper cheap adapter (one of which I already own for adapting CF) could be used to create extra swap space. So, what is the current consensus on the feasibility/advisability of using flash memory for swap? I've read about the limited write cycles of flash being an argument against using it for swap. But recent reading indicates to me that the limited write cycles problem applies mostly to older, smaller-capacity flash memory. Some will come out and say that, for larger-capacity flash memory, the life of the device is likely to exceed the amount of time your current computer will be useful (I think I've seen estimates in the range of 3-4 years life--minimum--for newer, higher-capacity flash memory).

A more persuasive argument I've heard against using flash memory for swap is that access times for these devices can be much slower than SATA, and maybe even IDE, hard drives. That would certainly dictate against using flash memory for swap.

So, how about some input on this issue? Anyone using flash memory for swap? If so, what kind (e.g., usb stick or SD/CF)? Are you using a swap file or a swap partition? How's system performance? Likewise, has anyone had flash-memory-used-as-swap die on them? The consequences would undoubtedly be dire. Also, has anyone measured flash memory access times to confirm or refute claims about slow access times? Are some types of flash memory better/worse than others in terms of access times?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Cannot Swap Boot Order - Emac?

Feb 3, 2011

With my ubuntu iso in the dvd drive, I do not get any boot from options for it to be used as boot drive within the boot order from the boot control panel. On startup with the alt key pressed I only get the Mac drive but when I change the boot to the other option (network) and press the alt key on startup, I get the boot order screen with the Mac HD and also the Ubuntu iso but cannot get the Ubuntu to highlight and use, just the Mac remains highlighted. On the same screen I get a very small wrist watch to the left of the screen that the mouse can move up and down but not to the side.

I am using a windows usb keyboard and usb mouse, I have used all manner of keyboard combinations to get the Ubuntu disc to highlight but nothing seems to work. Within the drive section, the "My Mac" drive is locked and cannot partition it or change anything about it. Has anyone any ideas that I can try? I did not want to get a Mac keyboard and Mouse as yet seeing as I wish to change the operating system to ubuntu.

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.

General :: Swap Fails On Boot Up?

Sep 10, 2010

Maybe what I am trying to do doesn't work but let me explain. I have two identical drives on my PC.

/dev/sda = 1 TB
/dev/sdb = 1 TB

I wanted to mirror the drives so I created two separate partitions on each drive:

sda1 = 1024 MB (Swap)
sda2 = 999 GB (Software RAID)
sdb1 = 1024 (Swap)
sdb2 = 999 GB (Software RAID)

I then only created /dev/md0 which consist of /dev/sda2 & /dev/sdb2 in RAID 1 mirror.

When I boot the system, I show that Swap fails during boot in bright 'red' letters. I don't know if it failed activating both or just any swap partitions in general. When I look at 'df -h' while my system is booted, I show:


[root@buster ~]# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev 10M 168K 9.9M 2% /dev
/dev/md0 997G 847M 992G 1% /
shm 997M 0 997M 0% /dev/shm

Does this mean that only 1 swap partition activated successfully and the 2nd one failed? Should I mirror the two swap partitions into /dev/md1?
