Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot The 10.10 - Mounting /dev On /root/dev Failed: No Such File Or Directory

Feb 9, 2011

After upgrading from 10.04 to 10.10 I have had some problems booting my Ubuntu. It all started when restarting after the upgrade, and I got the error;

Code:

mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting / sys/ on root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or dirctory
Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init.
No init found. Try passing init= boot arg

BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3.1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash)(initramfs) After searching the Internet, I found a "solution". I just had to boot with a USB stick with the Ubuntu Rescue Remix (the normal Ubuntu USB won't boot either), and i wrote;

Code:

sudo fsck /dev/sdb5

Now I could start my Ubuntu again. So whats the problem? If I turn off my computer the normal way, there is no problem, but if I log off, put it into sleep mode, if something happens and I have to turn it off with the button it goes back to the first problem, and I have to reboot it with the USB stick and fix it all over again! If I don't have the USB stick with me, I probably wont be able to use my laptop!

Ubuntu :: Initramfs Boot Error - Mount: Mounting /dev /root/sys Failed: No Such File Or Directory

Feb 19, 2011

Okay, so on occasion when I boot into ubuntu I get this error

[mount: mounting /dev /root/dev failed: no such file or directory]
[mount: mounting /dev /root/sys failed: no such file or directory]
[mount: mounting /dev /root/proc failed: no such file or directory]

[code]...

I get the error when I open any of the kernel versions or any recovery mode. Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop is the only OS installed on the computer, which is a Lenovo S10-3. I can eventually get it to go away, sometimes by repeatedly unplugging it and plugging it back in, and sometimes I will boot into GParted, do nothing, then restart and it will work.I have found some solutions online, but all of them involve the error happening as a result of dual booting with Windows.I have made no major system changes recently, so I can't see anything like that being the problem.

Ubuntu :: Error - Mounting /dev On /root/dev Failed: No Such File Or Directory

Apr 4, 2010

I have recently experienced a problem that occurred after an automatic update. After the update it said restart system. So I did and proceeded as normal. when after the reboot Firefox suddenly stopped working, crashed and upon clicking it again only a blank box appeared. Then my other apps followed and i soon couldn't do anything so i shut down my computer. Upon restart I got a black screen with tons of text and something around the lines of

mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting / sys/ on root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or dirctory

[code]....

So I rebooted and pressed shift to open that grub thing and booted from an earlier kernel. This time it said checking HD for errors and after booted normally. Everything seemed fine but next day it did it again. Starting with Firefox crashing and then everything else. I again booted from a previous kernel and it worked but upon checking with uname -a it did not list the kernel i chose to boot from. So I decided to upgrade 10.04 to 10.10. This upgraded my kernel and deleted the old ones so i am hoping i am good now.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mount: Mounting /dev On /root/dev Failed: No Such File Or Directory

May 14, 2011

Doesn't seem to matter which version, every time I try to install Software raid on an Ubuntu server system, it blows up with this error. Seems I've had trouble for several versions.

Code:

mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/f35415ee-4c14-4eb1-995f-f19fbcd760c7 on /root
failed: Invalid argument
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory

[code]...

I've done it on Centos Fine, and followed the many different instructions I've seen for Ubuntu. The only luck I've had was with bios raid, but I would much rather let Mdadm handle things.

My build:

ubuntu-10.04.2-server-amd64 CD install
AMD 1055T 6Core
4GB ram
Asus M4A88TD-MUSB3

[code]...

I install both as letting Ubuntu decide partitions for one drive, do the same for the other, and create a raid, and do them from scratch. No dice, same problem. I've tried that one as logical and as primary too. No difference. Something just doesn't like booting from a raid 1 Mirror. I've tried installing grub on both HDDs (sda1 + sdb1)I've tried several CDs, burned from several machines. Re-downloaded from Torrent and from the website. The DVD drives work since I purchased new DVD drives for both one workstation and the server. Things install fine under CentOS, software raid comes up.

Ubuntu :: Mounting /dev On /root/dev Failed At Boot

Aug 21, 2010

I installed ubuntu 10.04 from the CD (downloaded from ubuntu website), all worked very well. until today that I decided to run the software updater. It installed all the updates correctly, I restarted ok, but i experienced a mini locks, for example when i was with firefox, firefox had mini hangs for about 15 seconds then run normally. Then all OS got unstable, windows showing no thing, for example when i tried to restart using the button, it didnot do anything. Well i reset my computer and BOOM!, im stuck after Grub showing me this:

mount : mounting /dev on /root/dev failed : No such file or directory
mount : mounting /sys on /root/sys failed : No such file or directory
mount : mounting /proc on /root/proc failed : No such file or directory

[code]....

I'm able to reproduce this. I installed a fresh 10.4 again, then installed propietary drivers (nvidia), restart, all working flawless here, then updating all packages using the update-manager, restart, here not all working well (same sympthoms) so i decided to restart, then BOOM AGAIN.. I did the process 3 times and, the same, so I think something is BROKEN. So im able to reproduce it but don't know what the hell is causing it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mount /dev On /root/dev Failed : No Such File Or Directory

Aug 8, 2010

Ubuntu(10.04) was working fine, then some program crashed or something, and I just switched off (power offed) the computer. When I restarted it, this sort of stuff comes:

Code:

mount /dev on /root/dev failed : No such file or directory

and some more lines like that, and then 'Busybox' starts with [intramfs].I booted Ubuntu from a pen drive and ran fsck on the main partition. I just pressed 'y' for a long time (it asks stuff like should it continue repairing or something), and then it was done. I restarted the pc and it booted normally - it looked as if everything was fine.I started google chrome, and it said it couldn't find a personal config file .. ok. Then I tried opening a folder - nothing happens. The system monitor doesn't open, and windows that do open eventually are completely blank. I restarted the pc (this time by doing the normal restart), and it gave me the same 'Busybox' thing.I did the same procedure again, and got the same results. (ubuntu boots, programs dont work, then I restart and the Busybox thing comes again)One More Thing : The Ubuntu installed on the hard disk had all the recent updates (including the latest linux kernel) while the pen drive thing was around 2 months old I think. So maybe that's the cause?

Software :: Installing Gcc On Puppy / "Failed Mounting Or Unmounting" / No Such File Or Directory?

Jan 19, 2010

I've recently installed Puppy Linux on a "second-hand" machine, and I'm trying to get gcc installed so that I can (hopefully) compile some wireless drivers for the USB adapter I'm trying to make work.

I've tried everything I can think of, including following the instructions on the Puppy website. When I click the devx_430.sfs file, it simply fails to mount ("Failed mounting or unmounting."). So I tried getting the gcc and make packages (+dependencies) from the Ubuntu repos, and install those (Puppy has an "undeb" utility). There are actually supposedly two ways of doing that: one is to click on the file in ROX-Filer, and that opens a confirmation dialog to install, so I tried that first (with all the .debs). That seemed to report a successful installation for each package (confirmation dialogs popped up to report installation success), but when I tried typing "gcc" in the terminal, it still couldn't find it ("bash: gcc: command not found").

So then I tried the second way: using "undeb" in the terminal. That again was supposedly successful (no errors), but still "bash: gcc: command not found" and "/usr/bin/gcc: No such file or directory".

So then I tried "file /usr/bin/gcc" and it gives this:

Code:
/usr/bin/gcc: broken symbolic link to 'gcc-4.3'
And of course, as expected, "find / -name "gcc-4.3" finds nothing.

Where are these files being extracted to, if at all? And I can't just use the package manager, because I don't have internet (this is how I'm trying to get internet). Am I totally screwed?

Ubuntu :: Long Disk-activity-pause On Boot - Between Mounting Root And Mounting Swap?

Jul 14, 2011

Just the last day or so, I've noticed a long pause when I boot my laptop, with lots of disk activity. dmesg says:

[Code]...

Why would there be a 15-second pause (during which the disk is slammed) between mounting root and mounting swap? During this time I see nothing but a blank purple screen, there are no cycling dots or text scroll. Is this normal and I'm just freaking out over nothing because there's no indicator of progress?

Ubuntu :: Init: Failed To Spawn Network-manager Main Process: Unable To Execute: No Such File Or Directory

May 27, 2010

I just updated from 9.04 to 9.10 (it's a long story, and I still can't go beyond 2.30).The update got rid of WICD, which is what I used and installed network-manager. Network-manager was not working at all, so I uninstalled it again and installed WICD. I could connect perfectly and had no problems.However, now the computer hangs during boot, saying that init can't start network-manager. I assume that something went wrong during the uninstalling process, since it wasn't updated.

This is the message: init: Failed to spawn network-manager main process: unable to execute: No such file or directory.

So how do I update it or manually change it so it stops requesting network-manager?

Slackware :: /dev/root Mounting & Booting Into The Generic Kernel Failed?

Jul 4, 2011

I just did a full install of Slackware64 on my netbook. Everything was sweet until I tried switching to the generic kernel. Even before this, I noticed when I ran the mount command it listed not sda3, which really is the root partition, but /dev/root as the root partition. This also appears in mtab, but not fstab. So yeah, here are the errors when I try booting into the generic kernel:

Code: mounting /dev/sda3 on /mnt failed: No such device No /sbin/init found on rootdev (or not mounted) bin/sh: cant access tty: job control turned off

I've tried rebuilding the mkinitrd_command_generator.sh script several times, as well as lilo.conf. But no success I've looked at some similar old threadss here but most of them are related to slackware 12 and older, so I don't know if these issues are related or not.

Fedora Servers :: Mounting NFS Share On Newly Created Directory Failed

Mar 12, 2010

Running NFS on Fedora 10. Exports fine. I tested it locally. I tested the NFS configuration by trying to access the exported directory from my local machine, before testing it from a remote machine. While logged in as root, I created a new directory "/mnt/nfstest".

Then I mounted the NFS share at the new directory I created:
[root@eric root]# mount -t nfs localhost:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest

When I tried to mount on the remote client:
[root@frank root]# mount -t nfs eric:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest

After a while I got:
# mount eric:/mnt/nfs /mnt/nfstest
mount.nfs: mount system call failed

I tried strace but wasn't sure what I was looking for, but I've attached the results as a .odt file.

Ubuntu Networking :: Root Level Parent Directory - Mounting Windows Share?

Mar 26, 2010

I've mucked through and figured out how to mount a windows share. I can access the folders I was looking for, but the windows share was not what I thought it would be. I was looking for the specific shared folder. Instead I got a root level parent directory that included the folder I wanted, and a couple others.

smbclient -L <ipaddress> gives me a parent directory on the root

First question: Can I mount a specific folder within a share?
Second question: Could somebody define share? I thought it was the specific shared folder, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

General :: Dd Copy - Hard Drive Clone Fails When Mounting Root Androotblock - /newroot Failed

Oct 27, 2010

I am trying to replace an old, smaller, and dying laptop hard drive with a newer one, using a USB external drive. I first tried cloning disk to disk with Clonezilla, but it failed after cloning my root, swap, and /home directories it froze when it tried to reinstall grub. After 2x trying, I switched to dd, which I have never really used (I am fairly new to Linux in general). The actual command I used was:

Quote:

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=4096 conv=notrunc,noerror

All seemed ok and after approximately 2 hours my 80GB drive had been cloned onto my new 250GB, with dd giving what appeared to be a satisfactory closure summary. I tried to mount and access the drive from my external USB enclosure but could not view it, though the data is there, I believe, as the size and bytes show... The error that Dolphin is giving me is:

Quote:

error - wrong fstype, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1 Missing codepage or helper program or other error. When I installed the new drive directly into my laptop, it begins to boot (Sabayon 5.4, 2.6.35 kernel) but almost immediately I get (handwritten down, but this is close):

Quote:

detected real_root
mounting /dev/sda1 on /newroot failed: input/output error
!! Could not mount specified ROOT, try again
!! Could not find the root block device in .

[code]....

I am assuming that my issue has something to do with grub, and maybe specific UUIDs that don't match (?) but I'm not really certain. I have both Grub Legacy 0.9x and the newer Grub 2 installed (Sabayon is already moving over) but I still boot with Legacy, not with the new 2, as I don't know how to switch, and am not sure if I should yet. I thought that dd copied bit for bit, and I added the noerror just to try to get it all transferred, so I don't know what went wrong exactly, though something seems wrong with grub and the bootloader, I guess...

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Bug NO BOOT / Mounting None On / Dev Failed

Jun 22, 2010

I've googled this issue ad nauseum but alas my poor PC is still quiet as a church mouse.I was prompted to upgrade to 10.04 and, despite knowing better by now (I seem to file a severe bug report following each upgrade), I chose to allow the upgrade to move forward due to a driver problem I thought might be fixed in the new version.The upgrade took over 9 hours but did complete and I rebooted afterwards. I never got my PC back, it's stuck during bootup on "mounting none on /dev failed".

Be cautious with advice. There is no menu.lst any more, this is Grub2.I have booted off of the Live CD and run the grub-install and mkconfig. I have edited grub to try different menu options by default. Each time, grub builds with 2 different kernels listed, neither of which are correct.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Failed To Update - Unable To Mount Root FS

May 25, 2010

I wanted to try out the new Ubuntu 10.04, but since I don't have any CD's available I thought I could use my 9.10 CD and upgrade from it.

1. Installed 9.10 on the entire disk.
2. Went to update manager(?) and clicked the button to upgrade to 10.04
3. It successfully downloaded all the files.
4. When installing the new files it suddenly said that it failed to update, and it stopped. Then I went to do a hardware test, but none of the menus were working.

I had to do a manual shutdown, and reboot the computer. This time I was met with an error "Unable to mount root fs".

I figured the upgrade was the problem, so I reinstalled 9.10 to try without upgrading.
1. Reinstalled 9.10 on the entire disk.
2. Went to update manager(?) and started the normal update for 9.10 so the system would be up-to-date.
3. Same thing happened now, it fails to update and it makes my computer useless.

I've already checked my hardware for errors, can't find any. I've checked the CD for errors, can't find any. I had 9.04 on the same computer a few weeks ago, and it was rock-solid. Worked like a dream. I'm using Win7 now though.
