I don't want to have to download the kernel source and uncomment out CONFIG_UFS_FS_WRITE=yes and build a custom kernel ever time I update the kernel. Is there a better way? Like when Ubuntu.deb repositories claim a stable kernel is there an auto config script when installing from synaptic -or- aptitude? Like any way to add this one config opt to .deb kernel W/O building custom one from source?
sudden of all all USB drives and sticks I put into a PC will not mount with read/write permissions (they did before). I can still copy to them, but only when I am root. I am on Maverick I've noticed though that if I run disk utility, then UNMOUNT the partition, Check File System, Mount the partition back, I get read/write access..
I am running Karmic x64 on a HP laptop that has a cd/dvd burner. I have a r/w cd with files on it and I wish to add/remove files to it. After it mounts automatically on insertion, I unmount it and remount with: sudo mount /dev/sr0 -t iso9660 -w /media/cdrom (I tried assorted other hare-brained things also) but it always says that the filesystem is read only. Do I need to use a different device than sr0? Is it even possible under Ubuntu?
We have a network with several computer. We have two file servers (don't ask why) an Ubuntu and an XP as well as many clients. Setting shares on Ubuntu was easy and all clients can see them read and write. but I can't get the Ubuntu clients to see the SMB shares on the XP properly. This is my fstab:
I used dual booting with Windows Xp and Ubuntu 10.04. Because errors, I reinstall Windows and then I could not enter GRUB, and Ubuntu partition disappear. I tried to reinstall ubuntu using live CD but I could not detect last ubuntu partitions. After I installed fresh Ubuntu on new partition, I got error message like this:
Unable to mount floppy0 Mount: block device /dev/fd0 is write protected, mounting read-only Mount: could not determine the file system type, and none was specified
After installing the "fuse" and "fuse-ntfs-3g" packages, my ntfs formatted thumb drive mounts read only, as follows:# mount.../dev/sdb1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,default_permissions,blksize=4096)
I need some assistance mount a UFS2 partition as read and write. if its not possible, then I may have to copy a few hundred GBs of data. Currently using the command: Code: mount -r -t ufs -o ufstype=UFS2 /dev/sdb /Data Thats just read only.
I'm trying to configure a per user samba login for full access to the user's home directory.Mounting the shared directory works flawless when mounting from Windows. I can read, write, create without problems. However, when mounting from Linux the shared space is readonly.
I have a networked raid drive. Thecus 2100. Its running linux, and includes samba sharing. On that I have a folder shared. I can connect to and read and write from nautilus. No problems. However, I can't use other apps through that method. Its not really "mounting" that drive in the sense you'd normally think of (afaik).
If I try to mount the folder, no matter how I have tried so far (-t cifs, smbmount, etc), I can navigate the folders, but if I try to read any file I get a permission error. Looking at the permissions with 'ls -l', everything looks OK. The weird thing is, I can write a file, then read that file back as long as its the same session.
Just now I tried 'smbclient' with no special arguments. Just the server and path url. It asked for my password. Once I was in, I had no trouble getting files. I had a thread about this a while back and there were several links and all sorts of command line options to try, which I did, with no different outcome. I think its got to be something much simpler and more obvious. smbclient and nautilus seem to have no trouble. Anybody know what they're doing differently?
I'm new to debian ,I was trying to mount my NTFS partition but I did that only with read permissions I couldn't install ntfs-config(allthough I have ntfs-3g installed).So I want to figure out how to mount my partitions with read/write permissions automatically as the systeme starts ?
I have installed a cable that connects from the CPU's SATA motherboard connection to a removable drives' ESATA connection.I would like to be able to swap drives on the ESATA connection and have all users be able to read and write to these drives.I have created the directory /archive/ where I would like the drive(s) to mount.The drives are all formatted Fat 32 - but in the future I may use HFS for formatting.When I used the command (as root):mount /dev/sdc1 /archivethe drive was mounted (but read only)What can I use in my /etc/fstab file that will allow drives to be mounted and unmounted by all users on the system? (both reading and writing)Also, will I be able to mount and unmount these drives without shutting down? or will I need to reboot every time I want to change drives?
I have a Windows 2003 server with fiber attached volumes (NTFS) that I would like to mount readonly on a linux system to back it up to tape. The fiber device will allow me to present the volume R/W to one host and R/O to another, however, the R/O system doesn't see any of the changes made by the R/W server. In other words, how can I make a readonly volume refresh, scan for changes, or update without un/re-mounting it?
Is the "mount -o --bind" option what I want? From the MAN is doesn't seem right... the option "sync" seems slightly more promising but I think I'm just grasping at straws here. The best I have come up with is a cron job to unmount then mount the volume periodically.
I want to simply mount an ext4 file-system onto a normal mount point in Ubuntu (/media/whereever), as read-writable for the current logged-in user, i.e. me.
I don't want to add anything into /etc/fstab, I just want to do it now, manually. I need super-user privileges to mount a device, but then only root can read-write that mount. I've tried various of the mount options, added it into fstab, but with no luck.
What are the possible problem when Windows access the file from Ubuntu got Read Only even though have a full permission to read, write and execute the file? Ubuntu to Ubuntu accessing the file there is no problem only Windows got a problem.
I did install QLandkartGT and the plugin to use Garmin with it and it looks like it work, but when I do press "Live Log" I get the error message; "Device Link Error. Failed to request real time position. Realtime thread failed. Failed to configure USB: could not set config 1: Operating not permitted".
I also get a similar error when trying to download tracks; "Failed to download tracks. Failed to configure USB: could not set config 1: Operation not premitted".
My guess is that Ubuntu do not allow programs to use the USB port, so my question is how I do allow this program (or all) to use the USB ports.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my system, and I put in a really old game CD for my really old computer. I cannot run the setup program , however because "it is not executable". I can't change this , because it is read-onlybut I can't chane this either. As I'm new to this, I was wondering .
I have a netbook with Ubuntu 10.10 installed in it,and a Pc with also ubuntu 10.10 in it , but x86_64.
I want to copy some iso files and data from my user home directory on the netbook , to the user home directory of the other pc , using a 8 GB usb formated in ext3 with gparted in my pc.
One iso is a windows 7 one to burn then with K3b , as i need to have windows installed in that box. Also of another iso that i have to burn too (windows 7 recovery disk) , and 3 anti-virus trials for windows.
As the usb is owned by the root (or more properly the mounting point,no?), and i can't use my user to copy data to it i usually do :
Usually , what i use is "sudo nautilus" then go to the place where is the data , copy it , and paste it then in the usb. Then in the other pc i do a chgrp and chown to the iso or file.
But , perhaps this is not the better approach. I have investigated a bit , and i think that i have found a better way , but i have some dudes.
The method is change the owner,group and permissions of the mounting point:
Code: cd /media ls umount /dev/sdb1 sudo mkdir usb
If i do this steps in both computers, with each user,in the netbook i can copy the iso to the usb (as fox can write to the mount point of the usb ), but can the other user in the pc 'mulder' read the iso , so be copied to /home/mulder, and then be able to burn it in k3b with success ?
I suppose that having 766 , it should be able to read it , but would have the own of the file ?
How important is not to only be able to read it , but also own it ?
I suppose if the user ID is the same , wouldn't be any problem ,as each ubuntu would supose that the file is owned by their user.
Perhaps the user name change,but if the ID is the same , the user is the same for ubuntu , not any different, no ?
Recently i acquired an electroencephalograph (EEG) and started to experiment with it, and i need some way to write or send a couple of Hex numbers to the EEG so it will start working, and then to save the data on text file, or at the very least see the output on the terminal using C or C++, i found some programs around the forums but none seem to work properly and more often than not, The EEG is recognized as /dev/ttyUSB0 has a baud rate of 921600.
I would like to be able to read and write on hd formatted as Hfs+ not journaled...I know it is possible, but still I can't since ubuntu mount them with a different user: 99.If I add my user to the group 99 will be fine? or exist another way to write on such file system?if use hfs+ not journaled it will be less safe for the files?
