I am unable to boot my server and it is erroring with the message "Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!". Here are the details:
I have a brand new Dell PowerEdge T110 server with Quad-Core Xeon CPU and 2GB 1333MHz RAM. I have installed a hard disk (SATA, 7.2rpm) on this machine that I removed from another Dell PowerEdge T100 server with Dual-Core Xeon CPU that was running software RAID 1.
Now when I boot the new T110 server, it displays the following error messages code...
I am running CentOs v5.5 x86-64. If I put the hard disk back into T100, it boots fine. I do not know why it is not working with T110 server.
I'm trying to get some data off of an external harddrive. I get a few errors:Unable to mountError mounting: mount: /dev/sdb1: can't read superblock.I then tried to run a read disk benchmark on disk utility and that seemed okay.I then tried
I am using Wind River Linux- 18.104.22.168-WR3.0bg_standard. The problem is whenever I execute "reboot, ls, cd" and many other commands the OS prompts me an error- "end request: i/o error, dev sda, sector "(different sector each time)" and EXT3-fs error (device sda1):ext3_get_inode_loc:unable to read inode block- inode-4088001, block-4097027 I also executed "dmesg", it also showed similar errors. Has the disk gone bad or the kernel is corrupted?
I have a problem in my ubuntu 10.01 that it can't load a drive/volume in ubuntu. When I tried, it said: "Unable to mount location Error mounting: mount: /dev/sda1: can't read superblock". And when I boot my pc with 'Windows', it said : "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" under a blue screen. What can I do to solve this problem?
I insert a certain cdrom into my DVD drive, the cd is mounted meaning I do can see the cd rom icon on my desktop. The cd rom icon name is the correct label of the cdrom but when I try to open the cdrom it results to be empty.
Then on the same computer I have installed Virtual Box and the Windows 7 image does read the content of the cdrom.
How can I read the content of the cdrom with ubuntu 9.10?
I have a external usb 20Gb hdd. It was a ntfs partition but i could'nt mount it, so I try with a ext3 partition, because with centos it's mount automaticly, but... for some reason that I don't know, even with a ext3 partition my centos don't detect my external usb hdd, howerver I already try to mount it on ubuntu to see if it work, even on windows with some programm to recognize ext3, it was alright, but why can't i mount it on my centos?
I am newer to Slackware but not to Linux. I am having the hardest time trying to get my CDROM to mount for me so that I can play audio cd;s and the like. I can see that the system knows that my CDROM drive is there and that it works because I installed Slackware 13 from my CDROM drive as /dev/hdc. Now when I put in a cd nothing happens? I have googled away and searched this forum quite a bit before posting this but I have tried almost everything I can think of and what others have mentioned. I have screenshots to show you what I mean. When I try to run the command: mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom I get it as mounting as read only and it says can't read superblock? Now that is fro my slave IDE CDROM on top as hdd. I have tried before to mount it as /dev/hdc but to no avail. I know both CD drives work just fine because I used them to install the system. I am going to put the screenshots below so maybe someone can help me! Also I can eject the top CD drive with the command code...
I have been using CentOS 5. for around 3 months. It was all fine and was having a pleasant experience using CentOS. Today when i turned on my computer and booted CentOS i am having the below error: Grub comes up, allows me to select CentOS 5.4 kernel image. and displays RedHat Nash version: and then the below error occurs:
I have a removable USB pen drive, that all of a sudden, when it got 99% used, stopped working. When I try to mount it (manually) I get "can't read superblock". I know there is a ton about this on Google and I've read a lot of them, but most seem to be about formatting a drive, or fiddling in fstab. I'm trying to run fsck on it, and it finds errors, (among them: two FAT-tables?) but then it just freezes, and CPU goes to 100 % and I let it be like that for 4 minutes, before aborting. Scandisk in windows is rubbish (fails to start), and running "chkdsk /f F:", in windows, results in nothing, the shell crashes immediately. Is it normal for fsck to get stuck and just chew up CPU? It does not seem to be reading from the drive, according to conky. Also, is it possible to run fsck as normal user, (at my work)?
I am using CentOS 5.5.I suppose this is an oft repeated question. I accidentally deleted, using rm command, 2 wmv files. The files were in a single ext3 1Tb drive, with just 1 partition --- the ext3 one. Each file is 600 - 800mb. The 1Tb drive has only about 20Gb data.Immediately after deleting the files i unmounted the drive (/dev/sdc1). Thereafter i searched the the net and came to know of the recovery tools foremost and photorec. I have installed both of them. I am currently running both of them as root --- foremost is just showing a lot of * signs on the terminal and photorec has managed to find some txt and png files --- but no wmv.For foremost i used: /usr/sbin/foremost -t wmv -i /dev/sdc1For photorec i followed some instructions available on the web.
In the meantime, based on some post on the net i ran debugfs as root, then cd into the directory where the files were deleted. Then on typing ls -d i managed to get the inodes of the 2 deleted files and the names of the deleted files are also correct. The instructions on the net http://www.theavidcoder.com/?p=3 tell me to run fsstat and dls both of which i am unable to find in /bin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin and /sbin. So i am unable to proceed further.
what does this error message mean? im trying to mount an ipod in disc mode. let me know if there is a way to manually mount it to get around this. but not too technical, the simpler the language, the easier i will understand it.
I want to populate an array of string by files exists in directory on mounting of file system. I got an entry point for file system mount. I can use either do_mount function or fill_superblock function. But I am not clear about how to call readdir from there itself. I need inputs for calling readdir from fill_superblock function.
This problem has arrived again.......I tried the same solution but didn't work out...the problem is described below.
I use Ubuntu 9.10 .
I did this in Ubuntu 9.10 live CD.
quote from terminal :-
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mkdir /win ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount /dev/sda5 /win ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mkdir /vdisk ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount -o loop /win/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /vdisk
The superblock could not be read or does not describe a correct ext2 filesystem. If the device is valid and it really contains an ext2 filesystem (and not swap or ufs or something else), then the superblock is corrupt, and you might try running e2fsck with an alternate superblock:
I recently installed Deluge 1.2.0 from the following PPA:[URL]I using this on two different Linux computers. One is running Linux Mint 8 and the other is running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10. The first time on either computer when I enable WebUI in the Deluge GUI it works fine. However if I ever disable it in plugins section I am subsequently unable to re-enable it (doesn't appear in the side panel again). Rebooting or reinstalling Deluge seems to have no effect.Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
I have a x64 OpenSUSE server with two hard drivers installed. The first one is used for the / and /home partitions and the other is for backups. Ironically enough it is the backup hard drive I am having trouble with. I was having trouble writting to the drive and unmounted it to preform a fchsk, however now when ever I try to mount it I get the following error:
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
Does anyone know who I can repair the drive and retrive data?
A problem with installing CentOS 5.3 from DVD ... I downloaded the CentOS-5.3-i386-bin-DVD.iso, after recording an image on DVD Start the installation, selecting Installation Method, chose Local CDROM - Message on my screen: "CD Not Found"
One of my colleagues was working on my system (Centos 5.6). He deleted some files from the /tmp directory (he thought he was cleaning up files). Right after that, he rebooted the system. I now can no longer login.
Prior to this, here's what I see following a reboot code...
no matter what I use, I cannot login -- it takes me back to the (none) login: prompt
Any ideas? I know that deleting from the /tmp directory could lead to catastrophic results, but he thinks he only deleted a specific set of files.
After several crashes during videos it seemed like a good idea to fsck root. Downloaded the latest systemrescuecd and ran it at boot. The error message was 'bad magic number, corrupt superblock' with a suggested command to try another superblock. That failed with the same message. Tried tune2fs to force fsck at boot and got the same message. The drive is less than 6 months old and the installed system is working more or less ok. The command I used was 'fsck.ext4 /dev/sdc2'. What am I doing wrong?
I'm running CentOS 5.5 with a hardware Areca controller (Raid 10). I initially installed a machine and rsynced the file system to a third machine; I'm then pulling in the file system to new machines and updating grub with a script to make it bootable.
I've done this before with other machines (no raid sets) but with these machines I'm running into errors code...
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 ?
So I upgraded my hard drive and went with a clean Lucid install. But now I want to get files off my old drive. When I re-hooked it back up (now 2 drives in the system), ubuntu refuses to boot. It kind of boots then just hangs. Never gets to the desktop, and the HD lite on my case is constantly flickering (what could it be doing??)
I have it set up correctly in my BIOS so that the new drive is the boot drive, not the old one. The only difference is that the new drive is sata and the old drive is old school pata (ide). I even tried pulling out the old pata drive and hooking it up to a USB adapter I have. Looking at it in the Disk Manager, it shows it as unformatted, and old faithful GParted doesn't even see it!
Now get this: I pulled out my new sata and put back in the old ide drive and guess what, now it wont boot! Grub (probably MBR) is screwed up also! Any ideas how I can read the data from that old drive? Ether by getting my new lucid install to boot with the old drive as a slave in the system, or by hooking it up externally using USB?
