Upon trying to boot Windows I got through the GRUB startup selections and then i get stuck at a black screen displaying "Starting Up. . ." That would be no problem, I just boot ubuntu instead and mount the partition to access the programs I'm looking for. Now I get an interesting error message:
"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00150000 size: 4096 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 1040: Invalid argument Actual VCN (0x15000011d92501) of index buffer is different from expected VCN (0x1). Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details."
I would run chkdsk in windows if I could, but that's my problem in the first place.
I was dual-booting Ubuntu (10.10) and Windows 7. I installed Backtrack in addition to these 2, and the Ubuntu GRUB was replaced with the one from Backtrack.
Now when I boot, only Backtrack and Windows 7 are listed in GRUB. When I run fdisk from Backtrack, I see all partitions, and running a Partition Manager lists the Ubuntu partition as a Linux partition. However, the partition manager says that it is unable to read the contents of the partition, and that it is unable to re-read the partition table.
Also, the Ubuntu, Backtrack, and Linux Swap partition are all listed under the same Extended partition.
Still a novice in Ubuntu (Karmic Koala). I'm trying to mount an ext4 20GB partition of my hard drive so that i can use it to store data, i want it to appear on my desktop as well as on places, as far as i know this is achieved by mounting the partition in /media. At my first attempt i used the following commands. (i named the partition ondskapt)
Code: sudo mkdir /ondskapt sudo gedit /etc/fstab in this document i added the following at the end: /dev/sda4 /ondskapt ext4 defauts 0 0
I am unable to mount partition in ubuntu 10.04. Icons for different partitions are not coming within "Places". Every time I have to manually mount the partition or CD or DVD and manually unmount it. Seldom it shows the partition icons within Places>Computer. Then the partitions are getting mounted upon double clicking its partition-icon. But I fail to unmount the partition as it throws the error "media/partition_name is not in the fstab (and you are not root)."
Ubuntu has been complaining about swap not being ready during boot. The swap partition was showing up un-known in gparted. I booted off CD, reformatted it to swap. Error message gone but system monitor > resources shows my swap size to be 86GB (the exact size of my shared NTFS volume). gparted shows the swap partition as not 'swapped on' I am running Ubuntu 11.04 along side Windows 7 (as well as my factory restore partition) and an NTFS shared partition.My partition structure in order of location on disc.

I switch on the PC and it loads the Grub splash screen. However, it does not automatically boot the top entry after two seconds as it's supposed to and just hangs. I hit enter to boot it and it attempts to but after a few seconds gives me the error "unable to mount file system....a maintenance shell will be started"
This occurred after I was using it and then everything suddenly froze up on me and I had to crash out Now this!
had a dual O/S win Vista 64bit & unbuntu 9.10 64bit.
1. Had a virus on my Win vista side, anti virus could help (virus kept replicating itself - to halt all progs from running). 2. In the End Win Vista would start & was only used Unbuntu for about 2 days. 3. Tried to repair Win Vista, but noting worked. 4. Couldn't mount Win partition through unbuntu either - needed to copy some files across. 5. Eventually formatted Win partition side & re-installed Win Vista 64bit. 6. The problem now is that the grub option to select the O/S choice isn't there, thus i can't use Linux. 6b. The computer loads only Win vista 64bit (Like there usn't a Linux) 7.Checked at the disk management prog - could see my linux space but have no access. 8. Used a live Linux cd to access linux partition, just to check - it worked. 9. how can i acccess the Linux O/S as normal?
Environment: A 32-bit kernel RHEL5.3 system running on a virtual machine. The root(/) filesystem is on an LV.
Issue: Unable to resize the FS after extending the root LV since it is mounted. After extending the LV, online resizing of the FS was not supported and the root filesystem could not be unmounted while it was in use. On rebooting, I got a kernel panic error. In runlevel 1, I couldn't run chroot, couldn't find the /etc/fstab, root FS could not be mounted, fsck did not run (tried block 31 for second copy of superblock using dd count=1 bs=4k skip=31 seek=1 if=/dev/sda2 of=/dev/sda2), couldn't find any rpm on installation media to install unix-utils rpm. On running commands in runlevel 1,
I am running the latest debian lenny OS and with kernel 2.6.26-2-686. I have a common /data partition for both Ubuntu and Debian which is ext4 file system. I am not able to mount this volume. The error message reads "unknown filesystem type ext4". How do I fix this. I searched the net and there was a link talking about this
Is there a way I can run myProgram when desktop appears no matter if root , administrator, desktop user or an unprivileged user logs in? I actually developed a script which I set to run at startup i.e. when the Desktop appears. Script runs finely but can't mount a partition. In the script I mounted a partition using
Code: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt &> result.txt After executing script a file named result.txt was created which contained Code: sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified
In other words the mounting failed. If I run the script myself from the terminal using sudo ./myProgram i don't face this problem and the drive gets mounted successfully.
I have a 4gb SDHC card that has been partitioned with an ext2, linux swap, and fat 32 partition that I use in an Android phone. After I partitioned it this way, which I have done more than once with no problems, it quit mounting or being recognized by Android, Linux, or Windows. Windows can tell there is something there but can't mount it, Debian and Android just say it's not there. I need to try to fix the partition table which gparted told me was corrupt the last time gparted could see it.
I was reading this about setting up boot partition to not mount automatically. [URL]
Some users don't want their /boot partition to be mounted automatically to improve their system's security. Those people should substitute defaults with noauto. This does mean that you need to manually mount this partition every time you want to use it. Add the rules that match your partitioning scheme and append rules for your CD-ROM drive(s), and of course, if you have other partitions or drives, for those too. Now use the example below to create your /etc/fstab: how to set up a boot partition.
1- Do I have to mount each partition after each boot? Is there an automated mounting the partitions?
2- Can I have a "My computer" icon on the Desktop?
3- There's a problem that occurred just now.. Yesterday I connected to another monitor, Today, after logging in - using the laptop display -, the icons on the task bar are shifted to the left.. Here's a snap shot.
I keep a separate partition for files and folders which I absolutely need for my college work. (I do this because I had accidentally wiped my /home partition while upgrading Linux before)
Anyway, I want to know how to mount this partition at boot automatically .. I know I am supposed to append an entry to /etc/fstab but I am a lil apprehensive about doing this without a go-ahead from users here.code...
I was trying to get rid of some sound issues, in the process I removed Pulseaudio, then I found a post with a couple of packages from a ppa that were made for using Alsa without pulseaudio. I can't find the link now as I'm on a different pc, but 1 package was named Gnome applet, another Gnome media (I think) and I can't recall the third. It really did nothing so I removed them and reinstalled the Pulseaudio packages to atleast get some sound back. I got right back where I started until I rebooted.
Now it gets to the splash screen, flickers a couple times and I get a giant generic login screen If I log into that, I go back to the splash screen and the same login all over again. I tried to repair packages with the recovery mode but it didn't do any good. I also tried renaming xorg.conf just for the hell of it so a new one would be made but that really didn't do anything either.

I Am Having Problem With My JFS Partition On Which Ubuntu Is Installed. It Is Not Mounting. The Bootscreen Says There Is Serious Problem With Mounting The Partition And It Does Not Load Linux. I Tried jfs_fsck -p and -a But With No Success. I Also Tried Checking For Errors Using GParted. The Logscreen Said logredo failed and unrecoverable error reading M from /dev/sda5/ CANNOT CONTINUE. Is There Any Way I Can Repair This Or Atleast Get My Data Back?
Times like this Ubuntu makes me want to pull my hair out. When I enter my pass on the login screen, it brings up a "Could not update ICEauthority file" error and then goes to a black screen. I've tried to fix this problem for the past 2-3 hours (searching google, these forums, etc) and at this point, I just want the data off my drive so I can restart with a fresh install of Ubuntu. I used the "gsku nautilus" command to mount the disk from a Ubuntu Drive boot, but it's not letting me have access to the encrypted drive. Does anyone know of a work around for this?
I deleted a Windows 7 release candidate partition from my computer. Now when I boot into ubuntu, it still tries to mount the deleted partition and I have to hit the letter 's' to skip mounting the partition each time my system boots. Where is ubuntu getting this partition information from and what can I do to remove it?
I just now re-installed 10.04 on my box, but now I can't get back into Windows. I'm getting the BOOTMGR not found error, that I'm familiar with, but the circumstances surrounding it are completely new to me. In the past I've encountered errors from hard-shutdowns where I couldn't mount the partition, until I checked it with windows first, but I can't boot into windows at all any more. I'm pretty sure my grub is pointing to the right location:
After installing karmic with Grub2 I am unable to boot into Archlinux partition. Grub2 has removed the last line of the Archlinux boot stanza! It used to read:-
Following the Grub2 tutorials I have tried editing /etc/grub.d/40_custom as follows:-
But no luck. Only way into Archlinux is to get into the edit shell and manually add the missing line and remove other stuff not needed. I have spent hours trying to resolve this issue and I am fairly p----d off
