Ubuntu :: Not Able To Connect My External Hard Drive

Jun 1, 2011

i am able to connect other thumb drives and other flash drives to my laptop and they run fine on xubuntu but when i try to connect my 80 gigs external hard drive, it displays the following error message and shows nothing but an empty window of the hard drive with no contents of it: ERROR:"Failed to open directory "This IS RJ's".Error stating file '/media/This IS RJ's/xubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso': Input/output error."

where "this is RJ's" is my hard drives label and the "xubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso" is a file i believe inside the drive. ( is it causing the problem?)this external hard disk is working fine on windows xp.

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 :: 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.

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

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 11.04 On External Hard Drive Drive?

Jun 19, 2011

I would like to install Linux Ubuntu 11.04 on an external hard drive - its partitioned and ready for Linux.I've downloaded and burnt the .iso file to a DVD so its all good so far...First of all... is this possible without messing up my macbook? I don't particularly want to break into my macbook to disconnect the hard drive (I read on a tutorial for a previous version of Ubuntu that I'd have to do that... - does it still apply to 11.04?) - as it voids the warranty (I checked ).The reason I ask this is because I had a friend who partitioned their internal hard drive and installed Ubuntu on it. But after installation was complete they couldn't boot up Windows 7 or Ubuntu... and it resulted in them having to clean install Windows 7... - I don't want to end up in that situation

Second... If it is possible to install it without messing up my macbook... - Do I just follow the install instructions but just make sure that where possible I make sure that everything is installed on my external hard drive?...I really need someone to put my mind at rest that everything will run smoothly and that I'll be able to run Mac OS X as usual but also that I'll be able to boot from my external hard drive to run Ubuntu.

Debian Installation :: Gateway Solo 5300 Freezes At Install?

Apr 12, 2010

how something doesn't work. Just so I feel better (and hopefully you too), I <3 you Debian. You've worked wonderfully on many projects and experiments before. Here we go.

Gateway Solo 5300
Intel Mobile Pentium IIIe 900MHz
256MB PC100 SDRAM
Random 10GB 2.5" IDE drive (currently contains WinXP Pro)

For the very short time I could boot off the Debian 5.04 i386 CD, I'd choose the default settings to boot to the installer only to have it freeze about 3-4 seconds in. I tried a few of the compatibility options, but I can't remember which. I set up a quick and dirty PXE server using tftp32 on a Windows machine and used it to successfully boot to the Debian installer from PXE only to have it freeze in the same spot. I'm now running the installer using whatever was included on the Debian CD to modify Windows XP's boot.ini to load grub and (inherently the installer) and it is again freezing in the same spot. Ubuntu does roughly the same thing, but only gives me a blank screen.

I'm fairly skilled with Windows (been using since Win 3.1 and 6-8 years old) in the command line and graphical environment and I know enough Linux to make me accidentally type "ls" instead of "dir" when I'm in Windows' command prompt and enough to get around in terminal (apt-get, more/less, grep, pipes, make, etc). I'm sure Debian will make better use of my rather limited 900MHz proc. I'll do my best to understand the technical jargon.

The installer only manages to get to about here: (I get to type this out manually. Ignoring timestamps. Bear with me.)

Freeing initrd memory: 11977k freed
Simple Boot Flag at 0x36 set to 0x1
audit: initializing netlink socket (disabled)
type=2000 audit(1271025644.848:1): initialized

[Code]....

Googling the last few lines suggests the problem is with USB. There is no option to disable the onboard USB controller and additionally, there is no option to boot from USB. Thinking the problem might be IRQ conflicts, I've disabled the Serial and Parallel port from the BIOS in a desperate attempt to free up IRQs slightly. The CD-ROM drive can be removed and swapped with a floppy drive or extra battery. I've removed as many devices as I can, the full list of which is just the CD-ROM and PCMCIA wireless card.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't See Icons After Installing 11.1 On Gatweay Solo 1450

Mar 28, 2011

I've used Ubuntu, but haven't done anything fancy with it. I installed OpenSUSE 11.1 on an old Gateway Solo 1450. It works great in Failsafe mode. When I try a normal boot, I get my background with a beautiful resolution, one or two of the icons in the lower right corner appear and that's it. Nothing else shows up on the screen!

These are my machine's specs:

1.2 Ghz. Celeron CPU
128 Kb. cache
256 MB RAM PC-133 (why I went with an older version of OpenSUSE)
10 Gb. Hard Disk
Intel 830-MG chipset
Phoenix Bios
Intel 4X AGP Graphics core

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get Sound From M-Audio Firewire Solo (using FFADO And JACK)?

Jul 20, 2010

I'm a complete Linux newbie - only installed it yesterday, and have spent hours trying to get my M-Audio Firewire Solo sound card to work. I can hear nothing at all. I know nothing of Linux, but am willing to learn. While I learn though, it would be nice to listen to a little Hall & Oates. I've got to the stage where the error messages I'm receiving don't bring up any results on Google. Here's what things look like (watch out, big pic):

Those sample rate errors appear in the terminal when I start ffado-mixer. I'm running JACK with everything set as I think it's supposed to be, except that 'Realtime' is unchecked.If I start JACK running with 'Realtime' checked, it tries to launch and fails, saying "JACK is running in realtime mode, but you are not allowed to use realtime scheduling. After applying these changes, please re-login in order for them to take effect". I don't know what more it wants me to do - i've already added

@audio � rtprio 100
@audio - nice -10
@audio � memlock unlimited

to /etc/security/limits.conf, and selected the 2.6.31-11-rt kernel on GRUB bootup. I'm a member of 'audio' and 'disk' groups like'm supposed to be. Have I not got the connections right in JACK? Have I got some sample rate settings wrong somewhere?I'm not even bothered about low latency with the realtime kernel right now, I just want to hear some sound

Ubuntu :: Seeing Folders - Plug In The External Drive And Get Error "format The Drive"

May 30, 2010

I'm not sure what to do, but I just rescued photos and documents using ubuntu live cd, gddrescue and photorec. The data carving went fine and I was able to move all of my recovered jpg's into a recovery/jpg folder, as well as my word doc's into a recover/doc folder. I also have recovery/video and recovery/audio. Now here's my problem...

I used the right-click "safely remove drive" from the ubuntu interface and then unplugged my external drive. I then tried to view the recovered photos, etc on my windows 7 desktop, but when I plug in the external drive I get an error and a prompt to "format the drive" so that windows can use it.

I plugged the external drive back into my failed laptop and with the ubuntu live cd can see the drive, but none of the folders display. I can cd "change directories" to all of the folders using a terminal, but still can't see them outside of the terminal. That is, with the ubuntu interface. I'm just trying to finish up recoverying these photos, which I thought I had done.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Reformatting External Drive - Error "drive Doesn't Show Up At All Via Df -k"

Apr 15, 2011

I need to re-format an external drive. All the instructions I have found start with figuring out where the drive is mounted (sda, hda, etc.). However, as soon as my RH Linux machine sees the drive's format (ntfs) it decides it won't even mount it in the first place. Gives me an error message. Also, the drive doesn't show up at all via "df -k". how to convince RHL to be a little more accepting?

Ubuntu Networking :: OpenVPN Only Connect When External?

Apr 26, 2010

We use Openvpn for remote access to the office network. It would be nice to keep this running and automatically connect to the office at all times.Once started, it does this anyway. The problem lies when the user comes into the office. Openvpn connects as usual to the vpn gateway, but this causes weird routing loops.Is there a way to say to Openvpn "Always connect to the gateway unless you are on network 10.10.10.0/24" ?
