CentOS 5 :: Anaconda Unmounting DVD From External Drive

Oct 25, 2010

I have an external DVD burner hooked up to an EEE PC 701SD. The disk has worked on a dell desktop computer, and a 701 (the first eee pc which I built the install on) without a problem, however when I boot up the install disk on the 701SD, I get a message telling me it's unable to download the kickstart file. It's being set to cdrom:/ks.cfg, which should work, but it isn't.... This exact same disk just did a full install on the 701 15 minutes before I ran it on this computer.

Hardware :: External Hard Drive Unmounting Itself

Jul 28, 2010

I bought an external hard drive a couple of months ago and in the last few days it is having some problems.

Step 1, I turn it on and plug in the USB
/var/log/syslog:
Jul 28 13:52:39 bc1982 kernel: [61683.130027] usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 22

[Code].....

I turn off the drive, wait a while, then turn it on again in which sometimes it works fine, sometimes it doesn't. These errors have occured frequently in the past two days, but never before that

I don't know what these system logs mean, does anyone else?

CentOS 5 :: Properly Unmounting RAID Drive In Recovery Mode?

Mar 9, 2010

I had a corrupted superblock in my RAID boot drive (/dev/md0), which I fixed with fsck in Recovery Mode.

However, after rebooting, the same boot-up problem (hanging for hours) persists. When I re-enter Recovery Mode to examine the boot drive, I found its superblock was corrupted again (which I fixed again using fsck).

Is there a proper reboot procedure which is gentle on the boot drive, such that it doesn't corrupt it? Or, is something else amiss?

Debian :: 8.3 - External HDD Constantly Unmounting

Mar 30, 2016

Running Debian 8.3.

I have an external hard drive (1TB MyBook) mounted via fstab by UUID to a directory. When copying/writing/reading a lot of files from it, it randomly unmounts and remounts as a different device.

It'll start as /dev/sdb1, I'll set a lot of files to copy to it and then it'll unmount and re-acknowledge itself as /dev/sdc1, the file copying process will crash and the current directory in terminal will display an I/O error. Running mount -a remounts it back to the directory specified in fstab as /dev/sdc1 and the loop continues. If it's just idling, there's no issue, only does this under load.

How can I diagnose what is causing it to unmount?

General :: Unmounting External USB Drives

Apr 7, 2009

Sometimes I get a problem with the basic "umount" command. I get an error message telling me that for one reason or another, the device couldn't be unmounted. Usually, it says the device is busy, when I can't see how it possibly can be. When this happens I'll use "umount -l" or "umount -f" or sometimes "eject" but I'm still not happy, because at the back of my mind I'm worried about damaging the integrity of the device's filesystem. What's the CORRECT way to deal with this problem?

Fedora Installation :: Once It Says Its Loading Anaconda, Screen Either Goes Blank, Or The Anaconda Fails And The Install Exits?

Apr 9, 2009

I'm trying to build a dual boot ubuntu 8.10 and fedora 10.I have ubuntu sucessfully installed. with a free partition ready for fedora.I cant seem to get fedora past the beginning of the install. Once it says its loading anaconda, my screen either goes blank, or the anaconda fails and the install exits, telling me to reboot my system.I have downloaded the DVD twice. once from the website, and i think when I bruned it it didn't burn right, I then downloaded it from torrent just to be safe and reburned at the slowest speed. It passes the media test.

I have been reading around it may be cause of my video card?My computer is the following.AMD Athlon +2400 XPXFX Nvidia Geforce 6800 GT or something close.80 gig hard drive1.5 gigs of DDR ram.MSI Motherboard not sure of model off top of my head.I really wanna get this dual boot working, As I feel fedora may have advantages over ubuntu. I was going to try to get ahold of another video card, and maybe try that. What do you think I should do

CentOS 5 :: Cannot Install CentOS 5.4 On Embedded System Anaconda Exception?

May 1, 2010

I am trying to do a basic install of CentOS 5.4 on my embedded computer. It is a Linutop 2 system with a AMD Geode 800MHz CPU and 512Mb Ram. Have installed an IBM 40Gb 2.5" HD for OS storage. I am doing the install procedure in text mode. Everything goes as planned until I get to the package selection.

2. Skipping media check.
3. Selecting "English" install language.
4. Selecting "DK-latin1" as keyboard layout.
5. Selecting "Remove all partitions and create default layout" and selecting "no" to modifying partition layout.
6. Selecting "yes" to configure "eth0" and mark to enable "IPv4" on boot.
7. Selecting DHCP for IP configuration and Manual host name.
8. Setting time zone to "Europe/Copenhagen".
9. Setting root password to a 16 digit alphanumeric pass-phrase.
10. De-selecting "Desktop - Gnome" (no other entries selected).

When the system is checking for dependencies, an exception

Traceback (most recent call first):

Ubuntu :: Unmounting USB-drive (flash Memory) - Get Data Back?

Jan 6, 2010

I stupidly unplugget my USB-cable, which was connected to my Nokia music phone, just as if I were in Windows. What do I do? I've lost my music on the phone, or, it seems it may be there (the correct mass of data), but my phone now tells me there is no music... Can I recover this? And - what is the correct way to unplug a USB unit in Ubuntu? To make it work, and find the phone/drive - I just typed "sudo lsusb" in the terminal, and it found and opened the memory automatically... How should you unmount the USB, and maybe even how do I get my data back?

CentOS 5 :: Nautilus Does Not Stop Automounted NFS From Unmounting?

Jun 22, 2010

A client is having a problem with a recently installed CentOS 5.5 x86_64 Virtual Machine (under VMware ESX 3.5). The problem is reported by the user as "Nautilus windows closing after a time when looking at data from the NFS server".

The folders the user is using are in a file system that is NFS mounted from a Solaris 10 file server cluster (VCS). These are mounted using autofs. These are direct mounts as in:

$ grep ^/- /etc/auto.master
/- /etc/auto.direct
$ cat /etc/auto.direct
/opt/user-data fileserver:/export/org/data/something/something

I have reproduced the problem by logging in and opening a number of folders using Nautilus under /opt/user-data. After a while, all Nautilus folder windows that are under /opt/user-data will close and when this occurs you can see from the command line that autofs has unmounted the area from the file server.

This should not occur because Nautilus having a window open should count as the folder being in use and should stop autofs from unmounting it. I don't know if this is an autofs or Nautilus bug but I suspect it's a Nautilus bug in it not keeping some kind of access open on the folder. System information:

The system was updated at install time. /boot/grub/grub.conf has "divider=10" appended to the kernel line.VMware Tools are installed. NTP is also configured and steps the time to UTC at boot if required (maybe this is overkill). autofs and Nautilus versions are:

$ rpm -qa | egrep autofs|kernel|nautilus | sort
autofs-5.0.1-0.rc2.143.el5.x86_64
kernel-2.6.18-194.3.1.el5.x86_64
kernel-2.6.18-194.el5.x86_64
nautilus-2.16.2-7.el5.x86_64

General :: CentOS 5.5 - External DVD Drive Does Not Show Up

Dec 5, 2010

Installed CentOS 5.5 some time ago and I can proudly say I am more than satisfied with it. Managed to install codecs, flash player, media players, chrome and opera browsers and all other things I need. My only problem is that as of about a week ago my external DVD player is not recognized any more by CentOS so I am unable to watch movies. My external DVD player is Magnavox and it works great but CentOS does not recognize it any more. I used to watch movies in CentOS in SMPlayer all the time. What to do to get it back?

CentOS 5 :: Installed 5.3 On An External USB Drive But Can't Boot From It

Oct 5, 2009

I recently installed CentOS 5.3 (from DVD media) on a Seagate 320GB external USB drive; this drive is connected to an Intel-based desktop computer (Intel D945GNT motherboard) with two internal SATA drives (both NTFS, as I'm running Windows XP SP3 as my primary OS). The install found the USB drive fine, and I manually configured my partitions; I had the install place the boot loader in the first sector of the boot partition of the external USB drive. I had set my BIOS to boot from the USB drive first; after a reboot, nothing happened...no GRUB menu, nada.

After some research, I had found an article discussing the need to rebuild the initrd for USB drive support. So, I booted the computer from the CentOS DVD, then went into 'linux rescue' mode; once I was at a command prompt, I navigated to the /boot directory and executed the following command:

mkinitrd --with-usb --preload=ehci-hcd --preload=usb-storage --preload=scsi_mod --preload=sd_mod ./usbinitrd-2.6.18-128.el5 2.6.18-128.el5

After the new "usbinitrd" was created, I edited grub.conf to reflect the new image, then attempted the reboot again from the USB drive. Still no GRUB menu.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Can't Boot With External USB Drive Installed?

Sep 30, 2009

I installed the latest download of centos 5 on to a older dell optiplex gx260. install went fine. I then hooked up an external 1tb USB drive, formatted it ext3 from inside the LVM, and mounted it to /usb-mnt. the mount command is in /etc/fstab like normal: /dev/1tb-usb/1tb-usb /usb-mnt ext3 defaults 1 2

all of the steps taken were straight out of the gui now on boot up I get: checking filesystems fsck.ext3" No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/1tb-usb/1tb-usb [FAILED]

*** an error occurred during the file system check
*** Droping you to a shell; the system will reboot
*** when you leave the shell.
give root password for maintenance
(or type control-D to continue):

and yeah all the /dev entries are gone. I have rebooted in linux rescue mode from the install cd, commented out fstab and been able to boot. but that doesn't actually get me to having this disk available. how to I get the system to see the drive again? if I add it back to fstab is just goes into the above. I don't seem to be able to get LVM to see the disk anymore to reformat it, I can't get the system to allow me to access it so I seem stuck.

so how do you get the system to reprobe and add a drive that once existed? uname -a output: Linux guff.domain.edu 2.6.18-128.el5 #1 SMP Wed Jan 21 10:44:23 EST 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Fedora :: Anaconda Failure / "A Crash In The Anaconda-12.46-2.fc12 Package Has Been Detected"?

Sep 29, 2010

I have F12 and been using the livecd-creator command since F9 to create liveUSB devices which are used to install Fedora on all the systems (nearly 100) I support at different sites ensuring they have the same build/configuration. About a week ago, I created a new image and when I attempt to install to hard drive, there is an ABRT message displayed;

"A crash in the anaconda-12.46-2.fc12 package has been detected"

Also see attached file.Now I am not able to install to hard drive.

It appears this is a known bug which has been reported at url.and that there is not fix planned. Can anyone confirm this?

If this is the case, does it mean that the �Install to Hard Drive� feature will no longer be available?

Red Hat :: Centos/RHEL5.4 : Anaconda-Kickstart And UUID?

Mar 21, 2011

I am using the "harddrive" option in a kickstart config to have it pick up isolinux files from a USB flash drive. I have been able to get it work by specifying the device name directly, but if I specify a LABEL or UUID, it does not work.Here is what my ks.cfg looks like.

Code:
install
text
harddrive --partition=LABEL="/install" --dir=/
lang en_US.UTF-8

[Code]...

It almost seems like the version of Anaconda in Centos5.4 does not support specifying UUID or LABELs, but I have not been able to confirm that from the Release notes.Appreciate any tips/references/documentation.

CentOS 5 :: Install Crashes Upon Launching Anaconda

May 26, 2009

I've recently been trying to put Centos on a PC which I have had Windows 2000 server on up until now. The system has an Intel SCSI RAID Controller which seems to be successfully detected before the graphical stage is reached. The system is fairly old now and consists of a p3 processor and 320mb of ram. However when the installer reaches the point of launching Anaconda in graphical mode it seems to start to load but then the system immediately boots itself down Quoting an Abnormal Setup Termination however gives no more details than that. I have tried changing the graphics card to no effect. I am not sure if anyone knows what could be causing the problem the media also shuld be ok as I have used it successfully on other systems.

CentOS 5 :: Anaconda Does Not Support DHCP Option 121 / Resolve This?

Nov 29, 2009

Following situation:
I'm trying to make a network-installation of my rootserver with CentOS 5.4 x86_64.
This server is hosted by 1and1 a company of the united internet group, which is a big player in europe.
The network environment of 1and1 is providing classless static routes via dhcp by using the dhcp option 121.
If i'm right anaconda does not support this dhcp option 121 and therefore does not "ask" for the routes.
Without the routes configured the traffic does not get through and the network installation fails.
An installation from fedora12 (anaconda 12.46) works without any problems.

Is there someone in the dev team that can patch or backport it?

CentOS 5 :: How To Tell Kickstart / Anaconda / Mkinitrd To Use New Kernel Version Number?

May 5, 2009

I want a new kernel RPM in my custom CentOS 5 kickstart distro. I built the kernel, got a nice kernel RPM out, and replaced it in my ks.cfg. The install goes fine until the very end, where Anaconda prints some spurious stuff about mkinitrd failing.I get why it might fail -the kernel version argument to mkinitrd was no doubt for the old kernel. But I have no idea where this is -it's not in the ks.cfg afaict, and so I don't quite get where Anaconda / mkinitrd gets it from.

I'd eventually like to use this kernel for the installer as well, but I think I understand that process much better.How do I tell kickstart / Anaconda / mkinitrd to use the new kernel version number?

Fedora Installation :: Cannot Find Anaconda-runtime In /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime

Feb 16, 2011

After installing Fedora 14 and being satisfied with the behaviour and the packages installed for it, i want to replicate the same installation in a few more PCs, so i installed Revisor to make with it an iso file that reflects my actual installation.

The problem is that if i run the software from Applications->System tools->Revisor, nothing happens after giving the user password.

Then i run it from a consele and this error is produced after giving my password: "Cannot find anaconda-runtime in /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime"

But anaconda is the environment used for installation, so it is installed from the very begining. Why this happens?
