CentOS 5 Hardware :: Receiving "wrong File System Type" Messages?

Feb 9, 2010

I tried to post this then couldn't find it anywhere, so I will try again. I am wondering if there is a way to determine what file system type was put on a volume when the file system was made? I have a MD0 device that wouldn't mount. I was receiving "wrong file system type" messages.

I tried df but this only works with mounted file systems correct? I am looking for a command to run on a drive/volume that is not mounted so I can figure out what file system is on it.

This time I was able to: mount /dev/md0 /mnt/storage without and entry in the fstab file. I then just entered mount and it displayed the file system as jfs.

Is there another way to determine the file system type?

CentOS 5 :: Parted - How To Find File System Type

Feb 18, 2010

When I run 'parted' and then type 'print' to see the partitions that are available, I see two entries: /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2. /dev/sda1 is of ext3 type whereas for /dev/sda2 nothing is specified for file system type. The LVM flags are set for /dev/sda2.

When I tried to resize /dev/sda2, it gives me the error "File system type not recognized". let me know how to find out the file system type of the partition.

Ubuntu :: Changing File System Type To Another Filesystem Type - Does It Effect On Data?

Feb 4, 2011

In my system around 73gb(pc-desktop) i have,1 primary partition(windows)-25gb, 1-extended partition(remaining gb) 3 logical partitions were there in (under) extended partition in one of the logical partition is d:drive. in my hard disk d: drive is -/dev/sda5

previosly i was fat -file system , (d:drive-/dev/sda5), i remember i changed the d: drive(d:drive-/dev/sda5) file system to ext4file system ,with following command using terminal

After doing(changing the file system)this one ,i couldnt see the d:drive data

By doing that

1q) Did i reformatted the partition? i think the new filesystem(ext4) has no knowledge of the data that was on it when it had a FAT filesystem.

2q) How to do undo operation,i tried to change the filesystem type to fat/ntfs in terminal using command --sudo mkfs -t FAT /dev/sda5.

Result:its showing text message-'mkfs.FAT: No such file or directory'(not in single quote)

I had very imp data in d:drive

Programming :: Receiving Wrong Data On Winsock From Unix Socket

Jan 28, 2011

currently I've got a big problem on programming with sockets. I use the winsock2 API and want to receive data from a multicast adress running on a UNIX-PC. The connection works fine and I really receive data from this group, but as it seems not the right packages. The received data is saved in a char[]. E.g. at received_msg[12] is a float value. This one I would like to read out, convert and use it in later progress the next value is y at received_msg[16]. The same Code works on a Unix PC with unix sockets but converted to winsock I've got the described problem and I have to make this code work under windows.

Here a piece of the code (received_msg[12]='3f'):

Buffer is a struct containing the two float values x and y. If I convert the char as this under windows the value of x is a huge number. The correct value is around 192, so receveid_message[12] should be 1.92. Could it be that the Unix-PC is sending data in an other way than the winsock receive it?

CentOS 5 Networking :: Syslog-ing Messages From A Particular Host To A Particular Log File

Oct 12, 2009

I've just configured my Linksys RVS-4000 router to syslog messages to remote syslogd server (i.e. my CentOS5 machine). Redirecting messages was easy, but now I'm having difficulties to redirect those same messages received from Linksys to a separate log file. By default, all these messages are logged to /var/log/messages, and after browsing manual pages for syslog, syslog.conf, and syslogd, came to suspect that what I want isn't possible.

CentOS 5 :: Changing VLC Defualt File Type

Mar 21, 2009

Once you have VLC open, select file, it only lists certain file types. Now if you go down to the bottom you can tell it to use other types (like *.*). How does one set it so one does not have to go down and change the file types every time? So that it shows all file types, all the time, by default.

Ubuntu :: Change Or Delete Obsolete System File Type

May 23, 2010

I use Markdown to store all of my source documents. Unfortunately, the .md extension maps to application/x-genesis-rom under Ubuntu. I'm not sure why that would be a system default MIME type, but I'd like to change it.

I've tried using:

gksu assogiate

to modify my file type cache. Unfortunately, even as the SU, I can't modify the entry for this file type. The "Remove" button is inactivated for the entry. (See attachment.)

How can I get rid of this (obsolete?) file association? Alternatively, how can I make my new one (text/x-markdown) take precedence?

General :: Accidentally Type Concatenate Large File On Remote System

May 6, 2010

Every once in a while on a computer I'm ssh'd into, I will accidentally type "cat largefile.txt" and my screen will start rushing with text for the next 10 minutes. I'm always working in a screen session, so my current solution is to just log out and then log back in, and since it can go 100X faster when I'm logged out, it'll finish in the short time it takes me to type my password in again. Is there a better way? Either involving the fact I'm in a screen session? Or a way to do this within SSH? What doesn't work: detaching from the screen session (doesn't respond until file is done outputting) trying command to move to a different window in the screen session (also doesn't respond) typing ctrl+C to kill cat command (also doesn't respond, probably because the command is done and the buffers just have to catch up).

General :: GRUB Legacy - Unable To Determine The File System Type?

Dec 8, 2010

I had only Arch on an HDD.sda2 was "/".Now it's with Windows XP and sda2 is not a root any more but a container partition wich has sda{5,6,7} in it. I configured the dual boot and it works. It finds Arch and boots it, but not completely. Stops after some time and says: unable to determine the file system type of /dev/sda2. FSTAB is configured, sda{5,6,7} are on their places. So I can't boot Arch. XP boots correctly. What do I do with this error?Also it says: try adding rootfstype=your_filesystem_type to kernel command line.

Slackware :: KMail Sending Messages From Wrong Account

Sep 22, 2010

I have around 6 email accounts for business & private use that I retrieve and send via pop/smtp with Kmail (Version 1.11.4). But it seems that all my outgoing mail is only sent via one account (say first@gmail.com) even if I select another account for the outgoing I.D field and FROM field. When I look in the sent folder the headers shows the correct sent from account but my recipients headers show they were all sent from first@gmail.com! Ebay keeps bouncing my emails back too as a result saying the email is not registered. It used to work just fine so not sure what is happening. I have tried reinstalling Kmail/kdepim-4.2.4-x86_64-1.txz deleted all the accounts and recreated them but the problem persists.

Software :: Upgrade To 10.04 - Wrong FS Type

Jun 19, 2010

Just upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and cannot mount one of my partitions. It is encrypted / decrypted in the following fashion:
# dd if=/dev/random bs=4k count=1 | gpg -a --cipher-algo AES256 -c - > /mnt/usb/keys/fs.gpg
# gpg -q -o - /mnt/usb/keys/fs.gpg | cryptsetup -v -h sha512 -c aes-xts-plain -s 512 create crypto /dev/md1
# mkfs.ext4 /dev/mapper/crypto
# mount /dev/mapper/crypto /crypto

It has been this way for a long time, survived several release upgrades. Now when I decrypt it, I have to use gpg in one command to decrypt the key to a file, then use cat in a second command to pipe to cryptsetup, as such:
# gpg -q /mnt/usb/keys/fs.gpg
# cat /mnt/usb/keys/fs | cryptsetup -v -h sha512 -c aes-xts-plain -s 512 create crypto /dev/md1

However, I can no longer mount the device:
# mount /dev/mapper/crypto /store/
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

This is how it's always been mounted. Well I know it's ext4, so I supplied that and was greeted with:
# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/crypto /store/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mapper/crypto, missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

The only item in dmesg is:
[78.212761] EXT4-fs (dm-0): VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem

General :: Ext4 New File System Mounting Compatibility With The Older Ext3 Type?

Sep 7, 2009

How well is the ext4 new file system mounting compatibility with the older ext3 previous Linux installations ? I refer to Ubuntu 9.04 and the new Fedora 11 which have the option to install with the ext4 file format. Will it be better if I install with the older ext3, so that I will be able to mount all other Linux from each other in a multi-boot system ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Bad Superblock - Wrong FS Type

Jan 4, 2010

I cannot for the life of me get my HD working again. I tried following all the various remedies I could find but to no avail.

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo e2fsck -f /dev/sda1
e2fsck 1.41.4 (27-Jan-2009)
e2fsck: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/sda1
Could this be a zero-length partition?

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo dumpe2fs -f /dev/sda1 | grep -i superblock
dumpe2fs 1.41.4 (27-Jan-2009)
dumpe2fs: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/sda1
Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.

It goes on and one like this. I'm stuck using the LiveCD for now (Jaunty) so I have some limitations.

Software :: (DVD Error) Mount - Wrong FS Type

Jul 14, 2011

A colleague had troubles with a DVD that contains valuable data, no further backup available. The DVD won't run and I am trying to fix it. Have been playing around on Mac, Windows and Linux successively.

On Mac
Mac shows this message in Toast Titanium 10:
but Finder keeps telling it is an empty disc, no way to get to the files.

On Windows
Windows 7 in VMWare is not of any help.

On Linux
Just installed Ubuntu 11.04 (in VMWare) and did some checks using info on this forum. When trying to mount the disc, this is the error message. Then I used fdisk on the volume (/dev/sr0) and tried fsck. I downloaded UDFTools but cannot find any repair option like udffsck as described in this thread by the last author.

I am running out of inspiration... there are clearly data on the disc, which can be seen by just looking at its surface, but also the info on Mac. However, there might be some bad sector size in the partition table which renders it unreadable. How to recover these data?

Slackware :: Kernel Tries To Mount Wrong FS Type?

Aug 13, 2010

I just installed Slackware 13.1 x86 on a new laptop (you probably remember me from my audio post). I am having one other issue. My root file system is formatted as EXT4. When my computer boots, it tries to mount it as EXT3 then EXT2, fails both types and then tries EXT4. Here are the messages.

EXT3-fs (sda2): error: couldn't mount because of unsupported optional features (240)
EXT2-fs (sda2): error: couldn't mount because of unsupported optional features (240)
EXT4-fs (sda2): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
So, eventually / is mounted correctly, but I think this is slowing down my boot time. Does anyone know how to fix this.

Ubuntu :: Bin Folder Deleted - Wrong FS Type Errors

May 29, 2010

I made the unfortunate mistake of doing this (sudo rm -r /bin) instead of (sudo rm -r bin) in the folder I was in..I'm trying to copy my data over from my Karmic system using mount, but I'm unable to mount. When I try to mount I get errors of an wrong fs type..

I've done fdisk -l & I get this:
/dev/sda1 * 1 37599 302013936 83 Linux

What the heck filesystem is Linux? Is that like ext3 or something? I don't know. Here is what I'm trying to run:
mount -t ??? /dev/sda1 /media/disk -o force

Also, besides that. If there a way I can fix my OS without having to do a reinstall? Or at least is there a way can backup my files? I have a 1tb external so that's not the issue.

Fedora Hardware :: Hard Drives Keep Crashing - Mount: Wrong Fs Type, Bad Option, Bad Superblock

Aug 26, 2010

I am writing as yesterday, my fourth hard drive within 2 years crashed. Is that normal? One was crashing 2 years ago, one in winter 2009 and 2 just within 2 weeks. What can be the reason for so many crashes? I heard maybe the power supply? How can I find out if that's broken? The voltages at least in BIOS seem normal. The SATA controller? How do I know if its broken? Can I just but one PCI-E card with SATA adapters? Is it the motherboard? Theres not much more in my computer... As well, its wired that my good-old 160 GB drive never crashed, only constantly the bigger ones. Here some typical error code from mount and dmesg:

Code: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error
