General :: Write To SD Card Fails - No Error

Feb 17, 2010

I am using Sandisk 2GB micro SD card on ARM processor EP9307A. The card is detected, mounted.
I can read data from the SD card. But cannot write to it. There is no error when I attempt to write to the Card. It appears as if its working fine. But after umount and re-mount, the data written is gone.

Here is the log when the SD card is detected:
# insmod drv
card size = 1977614336, sector size = 31, wp_grp_size = 127, wp_grp_enable = y
S:00001000 M:fffff000

What is the significance of Write Group Protect Enable (wp_grp_enable=y). Is it the case that the SD card is write protected.

Using CMD9 : SEND_CSD , I can read the Card Specific Data (CSD).
I have tried CMD27 : PROGRAM_CSD , to CLEAR wr_grp_enable : No effect seen.
I have tried CMD29 : CLEAR_WRITE_PROT ,: No effect seen.

Where is the issue,
1. I could not send commands properly.
2. Card cannot be set free from WRITE_PROTECT.
3. Something else.

May 20, 2010

I want to migrate my Debian server to CenOS. The Debian server has the following partition layout code...

When I try to map Logical Volume 'home' to '/home' en choose the 'Leave unchanged (preserve data)' option I get the following error:

The current requested size ( 947904.00 MB) is larger than maximum logical volume size ( 262144.00 MB).
To increase this limit you can create more Physical Volumes from unpartitioned disk space and add them to this Volume Group.

CentOS 5 :: Unable To Write To USB Drive

Oct 7, 2009

I have have Centos 5.3 which does not save files to USB drives. after copying over file to an empty drive the files are shown on the drive and can be opened and edited but when the drive is removed and reinserted the drive is empty again even though I have told the it to remove the device. I suspect that the file cache is not being flushed correctly. Is there a way of checking this and forcing it to flush the file cache if this is the problem?

CentOS 5 :: Booting CentOS V5.2 Fails With GRUB Error 13: Invalid Executable Format?

May 5, 2009

I'm trying to install a dual booting machine with OpenSUSE v11.1 32bit and CentOS v5.2 64bit. I installed OpenSUSE first and allowed it to install and configure grub in the MBR and after that I wanted to proceed with CentOS v5.2. The installation went fine with two notable exceptions:- when I had to configure grub installation parameters, CentOS offered me only 2 solutions: either install it on the MBR of the first hard disk or not installing it at all. Other distributions are more flexible allowing you to install it in the boot sector of the root partition for example. Because I didn't want to ruin the existent grub onfiguration, I reluctantly accepted not to install it for CentOS assuming that I could manually configure the entry later in grub's menu.lst file.

- when I was presented with the options for software components installation, I've clicked on virtualization category/function because I intend to use the machine as a VMware host. There was no guidance on screen at that point and I blindly assumed that by choosing the virtualization function I would get necessary tools and drivers that will help me further on. It seems that this was a wrong move as you can see it below.

After completing the installation, I tried to search for a template or guiding on how the menu entry in menu.lst should look like but the grub directory was empty, not surprisingly because I've told CentOS earlier not to install it. Using the files in the /boot directory from the CentOS installation I tried to improvise a menu entry but it's not working. The boot stops with famous Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format. Using the file command to check what kind of files I'm trying to load as kernels I'm getting :

marte:~ # file /mnt/vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.el5xen

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive - Error "read / Write Permissions" On The Folder Properties

Dec 16, 2010

i borrowed an external hard drive from my friend to back up a load of stuff on my windows partition before reinstalling it. I am doing this through ubuntu. I am trying to zip up folders like My Documents etc and chuck them on the external hard drive but it always comes up with errors to do with read/write permissions. In the permissions tab on the folder properties of the ext hard drive it says I am owner but i have no file access (only folder access is create and delete files). When i try to give myself read/write permission it just goes straight back to nothing when i look at it again.

OpenSUSE Install :: Grub Error 15 - What To Write In The Menu.lst ?

Nov 1, 2010

I made a clean install of opense Suse and by mistake I overwrited the menu.lst (because of the restoration utility). As a result I have the grub error 15 : file not found, and tried everything I could think.

Grub is installed on the MBR and boots from the extended partition. The new openSuse is on sda8, there is an old openSuse on sda4 but xorg is broken. I can boot on Windows, and sda4, but not on sda8 menu.lst




Someone sees what's wrong in the menu.lst ?

CentOS 5 Hardware :: 5.3 Fails To Install On Toshiba Tecra

Oct 17, 2009

Not new to CentOS, which I've installed on a few servers. I'm trying to turn a very old laptop (11 years ?), Toshiba Tecra 540cdt (with the latest available BIOS), into a home server. It runs Windows 2000 fine, and was earlier running some Mandriva versions. I'm trying a multi-boot install, from CD1of6. It does boot from the CD, then shows:
Loading vmlinuz...
Loading initrd.img...
then reboots, and goes through the same cycle.
I switched the hard disk, same result. I have problems too if I try to install the latest Knoppix. An older Knoppix, 5.1 with kernel 2.6.19, will boot.

CentOS 5 :: Install Over Tftp/http Fails Due To Invalid Path?

I have a problem installing CentOS 5.5 over lan. I set up a dhcp3 server and it works, client got an ip. I set up a tftpd-hpa server and it works, client can boot the install image of CentOS 5.5 I set up an apache server and it seems to be impossible... In the installation marathon I clicked through the menu to the choice of the web server where my installation files are available. I enter the ip and the path CentOS-5.5 and CentOS tells me "Unable to retrieve" . Thats right because the two slashes are not right. Where the hell come the two slashes from???

I edited my httpd.conf like this:

<Directory /tftpboot/CentOS-5.5>
Options Indexes
AllowOverride None
