Ubuntu :: Format A Write Protected Flash Drive?

Oct 12, 2010

I have a flash drive that is write protected and in RAW format(so not formatted). I've tried everything I can find to make it usable again in Windows but I ran out of options. I quickly found about the Gnome Partition Editor, but when I try to start it, it gets an icon in the taskbar that says "Starting GParted" and then it closes. Is some other way I can format my flash drive or do I need to find out why gparted isn't running?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount Device, Write Protected & Read Only?

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Browse 11.3 CD - Block Device Write Protected

Jul 15, 2010

I can browse the iso image easily enough with a loopback mount, but when it comes to mounting the actual CD (which I did first), I get:

$ sudo mount -t udf,iso9660 /dev/dvd /mnt/dvd
mount: block device /dev/dvd is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/dvd,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
/var/log/messages isn't very helpful, either:

Jul 15 15:15:56 bkorb-dt kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device
Jul 15 15:15:56 bkorb-dt kernel: sr0: rw=0, want=68, limit=4
Jul 15 15:15:56 bkorb-dt kernel: isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=sr0, iso_blknum=16, block=16
$ md5sum openSUSE-11.3-DVD-x86_64.iso
adf5d2a0a03c1e3aaf102fd6a4771b87 openSUSE-11.3-DVD-x86_64.iso

I burned it with K3B and it gets the same result trying to mount it. K3B seems to know that the image is an iso9660 and is able to display the various 9660 id fields just fine. It just won't mount.

Programming :: Displaying The Contents Of Buffers In A Protected And Non-protected Critical Section?

Nov 19, 2010

I have this project for my operating systems class and I have put together the basic flow chart to aid me in writing the program. I know how to use pipes as a buffer to hold info. I know how to create a binary semaphore. But what I dont know is this:

How to "use a delay adjustment parameter K in the critical section to adjust the speed of the display process to show that without semaphore protection the displayed contents of the buffer are randomly interleaved."

First off, I am definitely not asking anyone to give me the solution. But I do need some guidance. So I figure there will be an if statement with two options:

1. If true, use semaphore protection to enter/exit critical section

2. If false, no semaphore protection -- this is where the contents of the buffer should be interleaved.

Now does that mean that as each child process enters the non-protected critical section, it should "sleep" for a randomized time? I mean, will this allow my output to be interleaved?

So lets say my command line looks like this:

what happens to the 100? Is it randomized using rand and srand and passed as a parameter to sleep() inside the critcal section?

Ubuntu Installation :: Any Way To Make Drive Reusable As Internal Drive

Apr 7, 2010

I recently scapped XP Pro on an old laptop (Toshiba Portege 7220)as it was so slow and I installed Ubuntu 9.10 - All installed ok and it worked fine for about a month. Last week I switched on, got the Ubuntu splash screen and thats where it stayed. I gave lappy to a friend of mine that knows about Pc's (hahaha). When I got it back he said he'd wiped the HDD and partially installed xp. The install apparantly hung after the reformat and copying files onto it.My problem now is I can't boot from HDD, Ubuntu Live CD or Windows CD - Laptop is set to boot from cd then hdd.When I try to boot from CD, the cd is read as I hear the drive being used also see light for cd flashing, after a while i get a blank screen with flashing cursor in top left corner and the cd stops.If I remove the HDD and put it in external usb caddy I can see the windows folders/files when plugged into my desk top.My questions are :-

1. Is there any way to make the drive reusable as a internal drive again as I know it works as an external drive.I would like to reinstall Ubuntu on it

2. Is it a fault with the laptop itself - how do I check

Ubuntu :: USB Flash - How To Make Write Speed Quicker

Jul 25, 2010

Does anyone know why the write speed of usb flash would be so slow? I'm running ubuntu off my flash drive but it is running really slow. I've tested the read speed which was about 33 meg a sec. But the write speed is only about 7 meg a sec. When running ubuntu it is very slow, not tolerable at all. I've read on some sites that there is a way to fix this but I'm not finding any good tutorials on making the write speed quicker.

General :: Make The Root Device Read/write?

Mar 4, 2011

I need to change a filename but when I boot up I get the message root device is read-only. Is there a way of changing this so that I can change the filename. I have a Mac Pro running Leopard OSX. The graphics card an NVIDIA 7500GT or driver has failed. It was suggested elsewhere that I change the relevant kext files to filename.kext.old, which I did, now when I try to boot start in OSX I get a message in various languages telling me to restart. I have tried booting in safe mode and from original Installation CD. In Safe Mode I get the same multi language splash screen, from CD I still have the graphic card problem, screen freezes and artifacts appear. So I boot up straight into CLI by holding down CMD-S hoping to be able to change filenames back but it says device read-only.

Server :: Not Able To Make Samba Share That Has Write Access

Mar 21, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.1 server on an PII Compaq. Read an article "Samba: How to share files for your LAN without user/password" [URL] and some others and can see and pull up files, can't change or delete. Here is my smb.conf:

# Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux.
# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options most of which
# are not shown in this example

# Some options that are often worth tuning have been included as
# commented-out examples in this file.
# - When such options are commented with ";", the proposed setting
# differs from the default Samba behaviour
# - When commented with "#", the proposed setting is the default
# behaviour of Samba but the option is considered important
# enough to be mentioned here .....

Slackware :: Make K3b Write Files With Correct Mask

Jan 14, 2010

I've blown a couple of DVDs trying to burn them with correct file masks (directories and files are read-only). There doesn't seem to be any documentation for K3b (building the index doesn't do squat and the help says "The file or folder help:/k3b/index.html does not exist"). I can't seem to figure out a setting that simply copies everything the "way it is."
