Ubuntu :: USB Mount Point Is Not Volume Label Anymore In Lucid

Apr 30, 2010

When I plug in a USB in Lucid, it gets mounted at /media/usb0 , etc. I'd like it to mount as /media/<volumelabel>. I know HAL is gone and things have changed, but I'd like to still have the USB mounted at /media/<volumelabel> as it used to, as I got scripts that use those mount points.

General :: Mount External USB Drive In Debian To A Mount Point Based On The Volume Name

May 5, 2011

How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.

This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).

General :: Finding Mount Point Path For Windows CIFS Volume Visible In Ubuntu File Browser

using Ubuntu file browser, I browsed my Windows network and logged on to a Windows PC. Now Ubuntu file browser shows me "C$ on WinPC" as a folder. I can open it, read/write files, etc.But from bash prompt, I don't see anything of type CIFS/SMBFS listed in the output of "mount". Only the usual suspects (like local CDROM). How can refer to Windows files from Linux commandline?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Usb Headset - Cannot Regulate The Volume Of The Phones (output) Anymore With Gnome-volume-control

Jun 12, 2010

since using 10.04 I have a big problem with my usb headset (freetalk everyman)

1. Problem: I cannot regulate the volume of the phones (output) anymore with gnome-volume-control. By default the volume is set to 100% which is way too loud. When I set it under 100% there is no sound at all. Values over 100% work.

2. Problem: The X server is freezing iregulary when I connect the headset and disconnect it, Magic SysRq works. I checked Xorg.0.log and found out that it recognizes the usb headset as keyboard:

Fedora :: F12 VFAT Volume Label Case Wrong

Feb 25, 2010

Under both Windows and Fedora 11, my USB flash drive was mounted using the volume label of "RBR Astro". Under Fedora 12, it now gets mounted as "RBR ASTRO". I like my old case. It's a small nuisance, but it also ended up breaking all my links to files/directories that I store on flash. How can I get the flash to mount while preserving case?

Fedora :: Volume Control Keys On Keyboard Don't Control Volume Anymore

Oct 29, 2009

Volume up, volume down and mute keys on the keyboard don't control the volume any longer.They worked before. Hitting the keys brings up a progress bar widget with the volume level unchangeable, set at 0% (which is not accurate at all).It looks like the key mappings or key bindings are working, but there is a disconnect with actual functionality. The volume cannot be changed or muted anymore from the keyboard.

This worked just fine in KDE on Fedora 11 before upgrading KDE components yesterday with Yumex. I am now using KDE 4.3.2 I don't think that it's a coincidence that it stopped working after doing an update.
I updated the kernel and nVidia drivers too, but this problem exists when I went back and tested with the previous kernel, so I don't suspect the kernel upgrade. No info in Xorg.conf about the keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing?

Sound works just fine. I can listen to whatever source I like. This is not a problem with the sound drivers as far as I can tell.I just want to be able to control the volume with the keys on my Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, model Y-UY95. Is anyone else experiencing this?I can adjust the volume with Kmix 3.5 or GNOME Volume Control V2.1

Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount Partitions Anymore - Error Mounting: Mount Exited With Exit Code 1: Helper Failed

Aug 24, 2010

First of all: it's been more than 12 years ago since I worked with Linux, and a lot has changed in the meantime. But I considered it a challenge to install Ubuntu 9.10 and lateron upgraded to 10.04 LTS without any troubles, until now:

Except my main partition ("/") all other partitions fail to mount. All NTFS partitions from my other OS and also 2 other linux ext4 partitions I've made are not accessible anymore. and, what bothers me the most: I deleted those 2 new linux partitions in the meantime because I couldn't access them initially because Root was the owner (Duh! root is standard disabled in Ubuntu, right?). After an attempt to try to automount all partitions following the help guides I got now big grey errors on my splashscreen while booting, telling that an error occured with e.g. /media/Backup because it is missing or it cannot be mounted, with 3 options below: waiting, skipping or using a command prompt to solve this. I always choose Skip for safety.

Now if I want to see the content of all my other partitions I got a popup telling me unable to mount e.g. /media/Downloads and the message included:

OpenSUSE :: CD / DVD Mount Adds Trailing Blanks To Mount Point?

Feb 16, 2010

On SUSE 11.2 when a CD or DVD is automounted (in the /media directory) it appears that the mount point chosen for the disk always has extra blanks at the end of the mount.

For example, if the label on the CD was DISK-001, the mount point chosen by SUSE is

/media/DISK-001 /

In 11.1 (and earlier) the mount point would have been

/media/DISK-001/

I'm assuming that the trailing blanks are filling in unused or blank chars at the end of the CD label.

Is there any way to change this annoying behavior? I much prefer NOT to have trailing blanks in the mount point.

Server :: Auto Mount USB Drive To Specified Mount Point After Reboot

Jul 19, 2010

I have servers installed with RHEL 4 2.6.9-89.0.9 ELsmp. I tried using uuid and label in /etc/fstab to automount usb drives to mountpoints that I specify after reboot. Unfortunately, it just does not work in all my RHEL4 servers. After every reboot, /etc/fstab will be automatically modified and all configurations related to my USB drives will be changed. Irregardless of whether i use UUID or LABEL in my /etc/fstab.However, it works on RHEL5. But, upgrading is not an option in my environment. I have been googling around looking for alternatives but everything seems to point back to using UUID or LABEL in /etc/fstab. Anyone has tried something that works? Please help me, thank you.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Label USB Stick So It Will Mount At Unique Points?

Mar 1, 2010

I have a few generic USB sticks lying around, and a few more SD/microSD chips that I use with openSUSE. Is there any way to label/ID them so they mount at unique points in /media, so I don't blast one accidentally? In mkfs.vfat there is a "-n volume-name" that looks promising, but I can't find a way to set that after the mkfs.

In Lucid I cannot get CPU scaling to work anymore, in previous Ubuntu releases this was not a problem with the same hardware (AMD Phenom 9500 Quad). I used to load module 'powernow-k8' and 'powernowd' to make it work, but it seems 'powernow-k8' is not available in Lucid. Anyone who has cpu scaling working in Lucid?

Software :: Mount Error: Can't Mount An Encrypted Volume With An Overlaying Ext3 FS

Jun 6, 2010

I created a encrypted volume on top of software raid1. These are my steps:

1. Create logical partition on sda

2. Create logical partition on sdb (same size)

3. Change type to partition to 'fd' for both partitions

4. Check that the both partitions are same size and type
fdisk -l /dev/sda && fdisk -l /dev/sdb

5. partprobe

6. Make sure there are no remains from previous RAID installations on /dev/sdb by running:
mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sda6
mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdb6

7. mdadm --create /dev/md4 --level=1 --raid-disks=2 /dev/sda6 /dev/sdb6

8. watch cat /proc/mdstat

9. update mdadm.conf
mdadm --examine --scan | grep mdx >> /etc/mdadm.conf

10. Load twofish module
[root@localhost ~]# modprobe twofish

11. # cryptsetup -y -c twofish-cbc-essiv:sha256 create ftdata /dev/md4
Enter passphrase:
Verify passphrase:

12. mkfs.ext3 -b 4096 -R stride=8 /dev/mapper/ftdata

13. mkdir /ftdata

14. Mount the encrypted volume: mount -O noatime /dev/mapper/ftdata /ftdata

It mounts successfully this first time. When I cd /ftdata, I can see the lost+found dir

Now, I unmount the volume
cd ~

Code:
umount /ftdata
cryptsetup remove ftdata

And now, if I try to setup my encrypted volume like this:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# cryptsetup create ftdata /dev/md4
Enter passphrase:
mount -O noatime /dev/mapper/ftdata /ftdata
I get this error:
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dual Head Doesn't Work Anymore In Lucid?

May 9, 2010

Upon upgrading to Lucid from Karmic, my dual head setup doesn't work anymore with the new 2.6.32 kernel. In the previous kernel 2.6.31, everything works as expected (also when I boot Lucid with that kernel). On 2.6.32, the only thing I get is two clones. Is there some new type of configuration required that I missed or should I still compile some new kernel module???

My card:

Code:
rogier@rogier-desktop:~$ lspci |grep VGA

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot Lucid LTS Anymore - Automount Error For Data Partition; / Is Md0

Apr 15, 2011

My Lucid LTS Ubuntu Studio 64 (amd) won't boot anymore; / and /home each are software raid 0 partitions.

I have a Multimedia partition (also ext 4) which I attempted to chmod with a GUI program (I forget what its called now) to enable all users read/write access. Looks like I inadvertently fstabed that partition to be mounted at boot-time (normally my password was required in order to mount it).

I tried to logging out and back into my OS to see if the partition was now writable but it wasen't; instead a filesystem error was noted. I realised then that my partition was IMPROPERLY labelled and I was in a tired state and didn't remember how to rename it & rebooted to make sure all was ok. But it was not:

An error occured when mounting /media/Ubuntu unknown filesystem type "Multimedia"

Boot: recovering journal

From my generic Ubuntu system on a non raid partition, I finally removed the space in the 'offending' partition: Ubuntu Multimedia to UbuntuMultimedia. And I changed the permissions for it.

But if I try to boot Ubuntu Studio via recovery; booting in low res is unusable, and it gets stuck if I SKIP mounting. So I am left with manual boot or drop to a shell. I will have to use an editor like vi or nano and the command prompt. I know that I likely only have to comment out a line in etc/fstab but I am only familiar with nautilus or gedit for this type of operation. And since this OS is on a raid partition its not 'seen' on the live CD....

I would need someone to offer me clear steps to follow with the non gui editors otherwise I'm in trouble...

I just wanted to use that partition for video editing and now I am locked out of my system!

Ubuntu :: Mount Point 0 Does Not Exist?

Feb 26, 2010

I am dual-bootng Ubuntu 9.10 and Mint 8, both of which use GRUB2. The Mint 8 GRUB sets the initial menu since Mint was loaded after Ubuuntu 9.10. Since both use GRUB2 I was not concerned about this.

Both before the installation of Mint and afterward I see a series of messages fly by on the screen when Ubuntu is booted. These come right after the initial presentation of the Ubuntu logo.

By restarting several times I can read the first several lines. They are:

Mount: Mount Point 0 does not exist
Mount 0 terminated with status 32
Mountall: Filesystem could not be mounted

Further lines follow but I would have to reboot umpteen times to have any chance of copying those.

I have looked in the various Ubuntu GRUB2 files for "Mount Point 0". I do not see any reference to it.

GParted, BKID and etc/fstab all agree on the UUIDs set for my Ubuntu/, Ubuntu Home and Ubuntu swap file.

I see nothing like this when I boot Mint 8.

My questions:

What is the point to error messages (I assume that is what they are) that fly by too quickly to be read? Are they saved to a logfile somewhere?

What is "Mount Point 0"?

What does it mean in this context to say "Filesystem could not be mounted"?

This is all very curious because Ubuntu proceeds to mount and run just fine.

What is Ubuntu trying to do as it starts up that it cannot do?

How do I repair whatever has to be repaired in order to turn off these messages?

I have looked through such GRUB2 dcumentation as I can find without seeing any reference to this.

Ubuntu :: Accessing Mount Point Over NFS

May 22, 2010

I have a folder shared over NFS that contains three sub folders:
(Machine A)
/usr/nfsshare/a
/usr/nfsshare/b
/usr/nfsshare/c

I can see these three folders just fine on machine B via nfs.
sudo mount machineA:/usr/nfsshare /mnt/ShareMountOnB
Now I want to mount a second drive in machine A, and mount it as a fourth shared folder:
mkdir /usr/nfsshare/d
sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /usr/nfsshare/d

I can see and access all four folders on machine A just fine. I can see all four folders on machine B in /mnt/ShareMountOnB, but when I descend into folder d, it is empty! Bizarrely I can create files in this empty folder d on machine B, but I have no idea where they are being held. They are certainly not in machine A. What I have to do to access the real contents of folder d. I have already changed all permissions and owners to be identical to the other folders.Sharing it over samba to a Windows PC works fine.

Ubuntu :: Add Additional Mount Point In 11.04?

Apr 8, 2011

I just installed 11.04 beta yesterday and was following along with this article so I could setup a "Storage" partition and always have access to the same files in win 7 or ubuntu. [URL]

The problem happens when you try to install and use ntfs-config and run it. Here is the description from the article:

Now head to the System->Administration menu and pick the NTFS Configuration Tool.

You'll see a few partitions listed, likely as /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, and the like. If you only want your storage drive, it should be listed as /dev/sda3 or something similar--just not the first or second options. Check the box for "Add," click in the "Mount point" column to give it a name (Storage, perhaps?), and hit "Apply." Check both boxes on the next window to allow read/write access, and hit OK, and you're done. Now the drive with all your stuff is accessible to Windows and Linux at all times.

When I try to run the ntfs-config, I get the following.

However, in the software center there is a note below the ntfs-config download saying:

Ubuntu :: Mount Point Disappearing / What's Going On?
