I recently installed Ubunutu 10.04 Netbook Remix onto a Dell Vostro A90. During install I selected "Require my password to log in and to decrypt my home folder", and this is working great.
What I would like to figure out, is how to have a second encrypted volume that lives on my SD Card that is also decrypted automatically upon login.
I've tried a variety of things, but they all require me to re-enter my password at some point during the boot/login, once for user login and the other time to decrypt/mount the volume. I am trying to avoid this, and hopefully will only have to enter my password once. Maybe I can piggyback on the default Ubunutu home directory decryption and make it all appear seamless?
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 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?
How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.
This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).
I didn't have Linux until the day Windows crashed on me for the gazillionth time. I was simply playing some music in Windows Media Player as the entire PC froze. No CTRL+ALT+DEL, no alt F4... so I was forced to hard-reset my computer using the ON-button. After that it never launched Windows again simply because it didn't feel like it. Now, we're not here to find out why Windows is a bitch about all this, my real problem lays somewhere else. Seeing as a lot of important files were on my Windows drive I figured I could just install Linux on the other drive and fetch the files from there. The problem is I can't. Every time I attempt to open the disk I get the following error:
Cannot mount volume. Unable to mount the volume.
Hibernated non-system partition, refused to mount. Failed to mount '/dev/sda2': Operation not permitted. The NTFS partition is hibernated. resume and shutdown Windows properly, or mount the volume 'read-only' with the ro-option. Or mount the volume 'read-write' with the remove_hiberfile-option.
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda2 /media/disk -o remove_hiberfile
I've tried both the ro-option and the remove_hiberfile but in both cases I'm given this error in the console:
Mount is denied because NTFS is marked to be in use.
Choice 1: If you have Windows.. click on the 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon in Windows task bar to shutdown Windows cleanly..
Choice 2: If you do not have Windows then you can use the 'force' option...
And thus looping me back to the first command, upon entering I will again receive the first error. Things I have tried:
- said commands or slight variants
- re-installing windows (gets stuck during installation)
- used the Ultimate Boot CD in an attempt to access and copy the files from my Windows Drive onto an external hard drive / my Linux drive
- clicking the Drive icon furiously for a period of time in hope of a different result (which obviously did not work) Seeing as I can't screw open my laptop and take the drive out I'm really hoping there is some way for me to connect to the drive from Linux and extract the files.
- most likely my Windows system files have gone corrupt and I will need a format, but I'm not willing to do that unless I'm a 100% sure there is no way for me to extract the files first. I have an Acer ASPIRE 7720G (laptop) running an Intel Core Duo T7500 and have 2 physical hard drives (each as one large partition) of 500GB, further more it has 4GB DDR2 RAM memory and a fancy graphics card.
I dont know if this is possible or not but here what I would like to do. I have 6 linux server and each has 100GB disk space. All of these 6 box are compute nodes and space are not used really. However, If I can combine 6 servershard disk that will in total 6*100GB gives you quite a bigger space. Is there any tool or ways to mount these drive in one volume instead of mounting individually ?
i'm installing a Linux system just simply following guide by fellow friends comunity. Currently, my box are having 2 HDD with 35GB each capacity. Displaying in GNome (36.2 GB Encrypted Data). During installation, I'd selected :
*Remove Linux partitions on selected drives and create default layout *The "Encrypt system" option
I just having to do a fresh install and get the following message to close after setting up partitions and on clicking write to disk:
Failed to mount "524M Volume" Method "Mount" with signature "ssas" on interface "org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume" doesn't exist.
Only option under message is close button. I'm using Fedora 14 xfce 32bit live CD. The install seems to carry on normally until done but then when I check the partitions I've setup I seem to only have the origonal uneditted default partitions.
what now trying to mount partition get this error this is the partition ubuntu 9.10 is installed on and upon reboot error no device with a long string. mount: can't find /dev/sda6/mnt in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
so now that I believe I've successfully mounted the partition how do I direct the bootloader to this partition /dev/sda6 on /media/11076e45-e27d-470b-bb6d-6894f7809a0c type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit)
I'm not really sure this is the right category for this post...
I've been thinking and reading but I really don't find a solution, and this is why I decided to post here. I'm not a newbie using Linux but I know absolutely nothing about nfs and related stuff. If explanations are not clear/precise I'm sorry and absolutely open to explain myself better (I'm really desperate, at this point).
I'm running a Debian in a VirtualBox inside a RHEL5. To supply space to the virtual machine I'm trying to mount a disk (? maybe not?) that I created in the RHEL.
In RHEL: I created a directory /some/path/dir and I granted access to it from the VM (edit /etc/exports file and restart the nfs service)
In Debian: I created a directory to be used as mounting point (mkdir /other/nice/path/dir) and I tried to mount (mount -t nfs -v redhat:/some/path/dir /other/nice/path/dir). What happens next is the following:
mount.nfs: timeout set for Thu ... mount.nfs: text-based options ... mount.nfs: mount(2): Input/output error mount.nfs: mount system call failed
Now, this Input/output error is too vague to trace where the problem is, but I really have no idea about how to go more in depth (are there logs somewhere? What should I look for? ... ...).
i have installed nfs server on my redhat machine.when i want to mount shared data from client(suse)machine the following error occur."mount.nfs: mount to NFS server '10.3.31.146:/home/usbtest' failed: System Error: No route to host"
I just installed Linux Mint Debian Edition on my friend's laptop. The biggest problem is getting his iPhone 4 to mount. On libimobiledevice.org it shows a cool video of a guy managing his iPhone with Linux thanks to libimobiledevice. libimobiledevice.org also says libimobiledevice supports the iPhone 4. But when he plugs it in, he gets an error that says:
Quote: Unable to mount location: Unhandled Lockdown error (-5) It's a serious issue and needs to be resolved ASAP. ***EDIT*** If this is a hardware topic, any mods can feel free to move it.
I have 2 internal drives. One is for the OS and one is for the Data. I tried to get the Data drive to mount automatically at login using some crap I found on a linux blog. Safe to say it didn't work and now I can't mount it with the OS on the OS Drive.
It mounts from a live CD and all the data is perfectly safe. When I try to mount the drive I get this error message: "Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: only root can mount /dev/sdb1 on /media/data" What have I done wrong and how can I make it mount again? Preferably this time at login.
First of all: it's been more than 12 years ago since I worked with Linux, and a lot has changed in the meantime. But I considered it a challenge to install Ubuntu 9.10 and lateron upgraded to 10.04 LTS without any troubles, until now:
Except my main partition ("/") all other partitions fail to mount. All NTFS partitions from my other OS and also 2 other linux ext4 partitions I've made are not accessible anymore. and, what bothers me the most: I deleted those 2 new linux partitions in the meantime because I couldn't access them initially because Root was the owner (Duh! root is standard disabled in Ubuntu, right?). After an attempt to try to automount all partitions following the help guides I got now big grey errors on my splashscreen while booting, telling that an error occured with e.g. /media/Backup because it is missing or it cannot be mounted, with 3 options below: waiting, skipping or using a command prompt to solve this. I always choose Skip for safety.
Now if I want to see the content of all my other partitions I got a popup telling me unable to mount e.g. /media/Downloads and the message included:
I have a Western Digital World edition II network HDD, but somehow I have lost the Media folder..I have also read http://foremost.sourceforge.net/ is a very great recovery tool in ubuntu, is this true?So I have pull out the HD from the western digital NAS case and put it into a USB enclosure.Anyone can teach me how to mount this driver?To look for device boot namesudo fdisk -lBut how to look for the mount_point_dir?sudo mount /dev/sdc4 [mount_point_dir] -t ext3
I just made a new storage partition and formatted it as Ext3. Now, this particular partition is shown and can be read at the terminal "fdisk -l". However, unlike in my Mint 7 partition, it does not show in my Fedora 10.
Code: [jun@localhost ~]$ sudo fdisk -l [sudo] password for jun: Disk /dev/sda: 250.0 GB, 250059350016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0xc5e3f820
This partition can also shows be seen in gparted in Fedora. However, even in the "Places" tab, it does not show.
I have bought a ICYBOX IB-NAS4220-B a while ago and kept getting issues with it (going down and not restarting, very slow etc). 2 weeks ago one more issue arose and I couldn't restart or reconnect to the box so decided to take the disks out and recover my data to a 5BIG Lacie. The IcyBox uses a software RAID1 and format drives in EXT3. Being a Linux system I thought I could easily recover data from an Ubuntu box so installed the latest version as CD boot wouldn't give me satisfactory results. I am now stuck with both 1TB drive plugged into my Ubuntu machine and can't seem to be able to mount the drives.
I'm fairly new to Ubuntu and I'm running Karmic Koala. I just reformatted an NTFS partition to Ext3, as I no longer need to access is from my windows installation. Now I'm unable to mount it though, and I get the message: Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: only root can mount /dev/sda6 on /media/DATA2 (DATA2 being the name of the previous NTFS partition. Now the label is linuxdata)
When I try to mount it using sudo in terminal I get the following message if I use the label DATA2:
NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount '/dev/sda6': Ogiltigt argument The device '/dev/sda6' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?
And if I use the label linuxdata: mount: can't find /media/linuxdata in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab I've tried to search for help, but been unable to find an explanation.
