My cdrom drive was working until yesterday it didn't mount at all. It said 'special device /dev/scd0 does not exist'. I went and checked in BIOS and the CD rom was not identified there as well I would like to know if there is a workaround for this problem. I am using an ACER aspire 4520 laptop with only ubuntu 9.10 on i
Just moved to Ubuntu from XP. Whole process has gone very smoothly, but left with a small problem (i.e. it isn't actually affecting usability) that I don't seem to be able to fix and can't find on forums/internet. I also have a problem with the Floppy drive, but I've seen that problem elsewhere in the forums.
It's a dual boot system with both NTFS and Ext4 drives. All are visible and fully accessible. I decided to convert one of the NTFS drive to Ext4. That appeared to be successful and was successfully remounted as an Ext4 drive. The drive label is "Data". I did have a bit of a problem getting it remounted so that I could see/use it under my log-in as opposed to just under root. It's at this point I think that I did something to create the problem.
I now have two entries for "Data" in drop down menu for Places. The true one is shown as a standard hard drive icon, but the false one is shown as a different icon - possibly an external drive icon (note that the floppy drive is also showing as the same icon and I can't access that, but I've seen that's a problem elsewhere in the forums).
I can write and read to the true "Data" hard drive. If I click on the other false "Data" icon, I get the message "mount: /dev/sdd1 already mounted or /media/Data busy mount: according to mtab, /dev/sdd1 is already mounted on /media/Data". If unmount the true drive and try to mount the false drive, the system mounts the true drive instead. If I log into nautilus as root, neither the false data drive or the floppy appear in the left hand panel.
I have installed Ubuntu server 10.10 today and I am trying to mount the scsi cdrom drive in a Dell Poweredge 2850. I can see the device in dev listed as scd0, but when i try to mount it to /media/cdrom or /mnt/cdrom I get a long list of I/O errors: Buffer I/O error on device sr0.
I'm trying to install Lucid on a computer with windows already present. When I ran trough the install procedure no drives show up at the partitioning stage. So I check some things out and it turns out that /dev/sda1 is mounted to /cdrom and I can't umount it because it says the disk is in use. I'm booting with the live-cd downloaded from ubuntu. Why is this happening? Previously with older live-cd's I always have to mount the HD manually if I wanted to access it for any reason?
After creating directory (DirName) in media/ directory, i wanted to remove it, so i used the rmdir command, "rmdir media/DirName". but now, i have mounting problem, i can't mount media disk, cd and dvd disk. how to recover settings and restore it?
I use Ubuntu 10.04, and whenever I insert media into a removable media drive, it does not come up on my desktop automatically. I need to go to Computer, then to the drive. It then appears on my desktop. Is there any way to make the device automatically appear? This problem occurs for any removable media. I am using Ubuntu 10.04.
For some strange reason, my media mounted in /media is not showing on my desktop on Lucid (10.04).I've been through gconf-editor to make sure the box is checked to show the mounted media in Nautilus. I also checked the options to show my Home folder and Computer icons on the desktop, but these do not show either.Tried ubuntu-tweaks to see if it would work, but no go there either.
Using Ubuntu 11.04, Totem (the default media player) is not able to seek (read: to forward or go back in time) whenever the file is read from a mounted ISO archive.
Whenever I extract individual media files from such an archive, the seek bar at the bottom works as it should. Thus, it can be ascertained that it is not the media files that are the source of the problem, here.
behavior in 9.04:plugged in a disk, mounted it and it as readable to the world.this is intended because it is shared via samba.behavior in 10.04:the disks have 700, meaning, they are not readable by samba.this is a problem.this is the best solution I've found so far:http://www.mail-archive.com/ubuntu-u.../msg10951.htmlexcept, that the mentioned means to fix this are gone.(gconf-editor -> ..., storage and preferences -> removable media)after 3 hours of googleing and reading I'm rather upset about this bug.so please, if you are thinking of suggesting fixed entries in the fstab or anything else that will not work with every media that is plugged into this box, just close this tab.
This is the set up I have: PC downstairs by a tv, with 3TB of storage containing my media, connected to the tv too. HTPC upstairs by another tv and connected to it. A few laptops and other desktops around the house which are windows based
I want the downstairs pc to act as a file server and to run my torrent client, it is running Ubuntu desktop version and has xbmc installed too for use with the tv. The upstairs htpc has xbmc live on and will access the media from the file server. What I am looking to do is to be able to log into my ubuntu machine remotely from a laptop running windows so I can manage the files and add torrents for download etc, but for this to be a complete remote session, rather than taking control over what is already being shown on the downstairs pc, like VNC does in windows.
I have two user accounts set up on the main ubuntu machine, the admin account and a media user account which is set to go straight to xbmc after log in. Also how can I make sure that the media drives are automatically mounted to allow access if the admin user is not logged in?
I just installed CentOS 5 and am trying to learn how to copy ISO files onto my new install, to practice network installation. The Cdrom doesn't auto mount, which isn't so bad I can mount it using :
[root@rhatserver ~]# mount /dev/cdrom /media mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected, mounting read-only
My question is... I want to copy from the Cdrom... to a new folder, then practice a network install across my network. I can't seem to figure out how to do this... I know that its an ISO file. When I check the name of the file on my Debian system it lists: CentOS_5.3_Final
I created a directory ( just for practice ) calle inst on /
how do I copy that ISO file from the CDrom to the inst directory... I have tried a number of commands as root: All similar to [root@rhatserver ~]# cp -ar /dev/cdrom /CentOS_5.3_Final /inst cp: cannot stat `/CentOS_5.3_Final': No such file or directory
when i use kickstart to install centos from cdrom (i make it myself in my way),i got a %post script problem with the kickstart file. 1.%post script used to copy my own software from cdrom to hard disk.then make install automaitlly with bash script.
the %post script like : %post mkdir -p /myownsoftware cp -r /mnt/myownsoftware/* /myownsoftware cd /myownsoftware
using Back In Time to backup my home directory to a second hdd that is mounted at /media/backupThe trouble is, I can do this using Back In Time (Root), but not using Back In Time without the root option. This is definitely a permissions issue - it can't write to the folder, but when I checked by right clicking on the backup directory and looking at the permission tab, it said I was the owner
I have installed XP on linux xen, when I mount a dvd or cdrom, it would mount on linux not windows! What should I do to mount it on windows? (I installed xp in virtual machine via an image file, so, whenever windows is poped on, the windows xp cd-rom is mounted with that image file), is there any way to mount it from hard?
I need to read information from SUN hard disks which are about a decade old. My CentOS 5.6 mount command comes from util-linux 2.13-pre7."mount -t ufs -o ufstype=sun /dev/sdb2 /New" reports "mount: unknown filesystem type 'ufs'", though its man page describes such settings.How could I read an external UltraSCSI hard disk (yes: high pitch noise and only 9 GB capacity) on a current CentOS? Is that possible at all?
I running Centos 5.3 on a computer with no internet access and no cdrom, i need to know how to keep it updated via USB stick. I have a 2 Gb USB stick, i am trying to update my centos machine and also update php and mysql with the testing repo packages. I am testing vBulletin 4 Publishing Suite and vBulletin 4 requirements are: PHP: 5.2.0 and MySQL:4.1.0 but Recommended: PHP: 5.2.6 or newer AND MySQL: 5.0.19 or newer.
mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.77, for redhat-linux-gnu (i686) using readline 5.1
edit:i am trying to follow this guide: [URL]since i have no internet access, i have downloaded all files to my USB stick.i added the testing repo manually.is there a way to instruct centos to update these packages from my usb stick ? since i have them on USB, i can upload them on centos.
I've been trying to install the Fuppes media server onto CentOS and have had a few difficulties. I had to do a build from the source (svn build 578), then configure, make and make install. So far so good.Once I try to run fuppes, I get the error:[ERROR] Failed to bind socket to : 188.8.131.52:0.The documentation I've searched so far suggests that there is a config file that needs to be set with the appropriate ip address, but the file doesn't exist as the program hasn't started up yet!
I have an iSCSI device that is large, ~17TB usable, and I've created an XFS file system at the device level. I mount the device no problem and am able to touch and remove files without issue. I start my application and within about 5-10 minutes I start seeing the following entries appear in /var/log/messages
I have been trying plop floppy to boot a bootable cdrom from a mobile USB cdrom reader, but the usb cdrom are not recognized.I was thinking that with grub or grub2 or syslinux that would be possible, no ?
I've been working at creating a highly available set of host servers for a linux diskless boot cluster.Each host machine is fitted with redundant power supplies and two 1TB drives in a Raid-1 configuration.When I first started this project they each had twin 160GB drives. In my original setup I had both nodes acting as primary systems so that I could mount /dev/drbd0 to my /data directory and see changes immediately.It had worked in the past where I could make a file in /data on the first machine and it would show up in the /data directory on the second machine. One day this had stopped working where if I made a file on the first machine it would display on the second one until I unmounted /data and remounted it to the /dev/drbd0 disk.
This is when I bought the new disks and decided to start from scratch. The weird thing is that if I make a file on the primary and remount on the secondary to see it and then delete it from the secondary and THEN delete it on the primary, the primary throws no error however it goes into read-only mode because it knows that file was already gone.Below is my configuration file, sda8 is an 820GB partition which is used for all of the data I want to replicate, currently populated with ~10GB of data. Sda7 is my metadisk partition which is 500MB large clearly more than needed by drbd.Also you will notice "incon-degr-cmd "halt -f";" is commented out. This is because when I go to actually use it drbd throws an error when reloading the configuration and I'm not sure why that is either
I'm having trouble with an NFS mounted directory on a newly installed 5.3 server.
The directory mounts fine using this command:
However I cannot write to the directory despite it being mounted RW and having read-write access on the host (a Netapp Filer). If I check permissions on the mounted directory, I see it is owned by 'avahi-autoipd':
I have disabled the avahi-daemon in chkconfig, although it wasn't running to begin with. Any idea why this directory would be owned by avahi-autoipd and whether or not that has anything to do with why I can't write to the mounted directory?
Is there a way to disable disk checks in a mounted usb drive? I have a 500GB usb mounted drive in my CentOS machine and everytime I reboot my system, it does disk checks which is a long painstaking process. /mnt/sdb1
I'm having a problem accessing files via nfs where an iso has been mounted through the loop device on the nfs server. Basically what I am attempting to do is access the 6 CentOS 5.2 ISO's via NFS from one of my client machines. The client is able to mount the share and see its sub directories leading up to the mount point of the ISO, but the contents of the mounted ISO image are simply not visible (on the client, they are visible on the server).
