CentOS 5 :: Extra Root Filesystem Folders For Mounting Device

Oct 26, 2009

I was looking at the root filesystem folder for mounting a device when I noticed extra folders. I'm using an encrypted filesystem so I'm not sure if it's that, a break in or the default Red Hat layout. I searched these forums and Google to no avail on extra folders. The root system contains the following:

bin {fda00e13-8c62-4f63-9d19-d168115b11ca} media opt selinux usr
boot home misc proc srv var
dev lib mnt root sys
etc lost+found net sbin tmp

CentOS 5 :: Error Mounting Device UUID=cee298a0-9c47-4a3a-ac84-23db4d20edd5 As /. No Such File Or Directory

Dec 22, 2009

CentOS 5.3 has been running fairly good except for a slow ethernet connection so I thought I would upgrade to CentOS 5.4 to see if that improved things. I had previously changed fstab and menu.lst to use UUID instead of LABEL in order to insulate myself from partition label changes I wanted to make. This worked fine in CentOS 5.3. When I attempted to upgrade from 5.3 to 5.4 using the installation disk and telling it to upgrade rather than do a new install, the installation correctly found my root partition as /dev/sdb8. When I proceeded with the upgrade I received the error:

"Error mounting device UUID=cee298a0-9c47-4a3a-ac84-23db4d20edd5 as /. No such file or directory. This most likely means the partition has not been formatted."

But of course it has been formatted and is my / partition running CentOS 5.3 as I type. how to fix this to get CentOS 5.3 upgraded ? Di I have to use LABEL in fstab and menu.lst for my partitions,or perhaps just for my root partition ? Any other ideas why this is failing ?

CentOS 5 Server :: X86_64 Xen Xm Create Cannot Find Device Driver?

I am trying to create a xen vm on CentOs 5.3 using the following config file:

I'm assuming that it can't find a driver for a cdrom - but I am not too sure of that.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Intel GMA 4500m Driver - Unknown Device

May 11, 2011

Unfortunately I've had no luck with using the default intel driver. It's strange really, you can see the gnome screen for a split second then it turns the display off like it's activating the external monitor or something. If I change the driver to vesa everything is fine.

Here is my info.

CentOS 5 :: 5.3 In VMWare ESX - Device-mapper: Dm-raid45: Initialized V0.2429 Waiting For Driver Initialization

Apr 2, 2009

I run many 5.2 virtual machines inside of VMWare ESX3.5 I've updated a couple of test VMs from 5.2 to 5.3. The thing that stands out is that during boot time, the sequence gets to this stage:

device-mapper: dm-raid45: intialized v0.2429 Waiting for driver initialization.

Here it takes about 3 times longer than the previous Centos 5.2 (about 9 seconds instead of 3). Whereas inside a physical box the wait in 5.3 is the same as it was in 5.2

Ubuntu :: Mounting None On /dev Failed: No Such Device?

Jan 31, 2011

I'm running Lucid with the 2.6.32-28-generic and 2.6.31-11-rt(abogani's ppa) kernels, on a fairly new laptop.When I boot the rt-kernel, right after grub I get a message:Code:mount: mounting none on /dev failed: no such deviceW: devtmpfs not available, falling back to tmpfs for /devThen after a few seconds, I see a lot of fast moving text and then Ubuntu starts just fine.when booting the generic kernel, I don't see any text at all, but it uses just as long time as the rt-kernel, so I guess the problem affects both.

Ubuntu :: Authentication For Mounting Device W/o Fstab?

I use Ubuntu 9.04 I have a problem. I have a file, containing ext2 file system ( mke2fs -F ~/fs.ext2 )Is it possible to mount this file by user (not root) without editing fstab and from terminal?

P.S. Using /dev/loopN is not what I need. Maybe, it's possible to use FUSE, is it?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Mounting DVDRW (SR0 Unknown Device)

Nov 14, 2010

Having some troubles mounting my DVD-RW after a reinstall of ubuntu. Now using 10.10.
root@Johnsky:/# wodim --devices
wodim: Overview of accessible drives (1 found) :
0 dev='/dev/scd0'rwrw-- : 'HL-DT-ST' 'DVDRAM GH20NS10'
So there's my scd0 sitting pretty.
Trying to mount it.

root@Johnsky:/# mount -a /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0
mount: /dev/sr0: unknown device

root@Johnsky:/# ls -l /dev/
total 0 .....

Lets try mounting sr0 directly instead.
root@Johnsky:/# mount -a /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0
mount: /dev/sr0: unknown device
sr0 is still an unknown device.

I'm thinking when I reinstalled Ubuntu, it made some screwy links between devices. But I have no idea how to resolve this... and there's no point in my mind to adding the DVD-RW to /etc/fstab until I can actually mount it manually to know it mounts successfully. Back when I installed Ubuntu 9.x on this machine, I never had any of these issues. It picked up the DVD-RW automatically, appended it to fstab during installation, and done. But 10.10 seems to be having some troubles my 9.x installation didn't.

Hardware :: Mounting Encrypted LVM - Device Not Valid

Feb 13, 2011

I recently had one of my computers motherboard die and so I moved the hard drive to another linux machine so I could access the data. The hard drive is installed correctly and I've mounted several logical volumes on the drive ok, but I'm having trouble with the two volumes which were encrypted. The LVM Gui in Fedora is ignorant to any encrypted LVMs so I looked around to see if others have solved this problem and found the following command:
# cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/vg_delldesk/lv_home luks-fedora

My Logical volume container is vg_delldesk and the encrypted volume is lv_home - when I execute this command I get the following error:
Device /dev/vg_delldesk/lv_home is not a valid LUKS device.
I have access to the root partition from the old box so the config files are there to reference the old setup if needed. My current box is Fedora 14 x_64, I have dm_crypt mod installed in the kernel as well.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB Mass Storage Device Not Mounting

Nov 22, 2009

I am currently using opensuse 11.2 with kde 4.3.1. I am having a problem when I connect my samsung R450. It will not mount or show up as a usable device in either Dolphin, Amarok, or on the device notifier. I have tried manually mounting but I get an error saying it cannot find such device. I did not have any issues using it in 11.1 with KDE 4.2. It is being recognized by my system, but not allowing it to show up as a storage device or being mounted.

output of dmesg:

PHP Code:

output of lsusb:

PHP Code:

When I shut of the usb mass storage on the samsung R450 it switches to modem and is properly detected and usable as modem by my system.I don't have any other problems with other usb devices, such as a digital camera or flash drives, so I don't know if I just missing a system setting or configuring something wrong.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Curious About Mounting Flash Device?

Apr 11, 2011

I'm trying to use the most-base install of opensuse 11.4 and so i'm using the text-only interface. I looked up some guides on using the 'mount' command but I'm encountering problems. I tried doing.

mkdir /tmp/flash
mount /dev/sdb /tmp/flash

but first off, I don't even know if sdb is my flash device, there's ~60 things in my /dev/ directory, and ~10 things that look like 'sdb' but I try anyway, and I generally get an error telling me that either /dev/sdb is busy, or /tmp/flash is busy but I wanted to check here and clarify first, how do I even know which /dev/ item is my flash drive? When I plug in my flash drive, no less than 3 new entries appear in /dev/ so, I'm a little confused. What do I do?

Ubuntu Installation :: Mounting Failed No Such Device - Win7

I'm trying to install ubuntu 9.10, downloaded the iso from the site and burned it on a CD, but when I boot from my cdroom drive and choose install ubuntu option I get an ubuntu grey logo for a couple seconds and the I get this error:

I tried downloading a new copy and burning a new CD but still have the same error, no matter what option I choose when booting the CD.

Does anyone now whats the problem? What I'd like to do is install linux as the only OS (formating everything else) not dual boot or anything, I'm new to linux so it'd help if you guys could give me details on how to fix it

I have installed previous versions of ubuntu on this same computer but using the wizard inside windows.

Ubuntu :: Bug: Ndiswrapper Prevents Mounting Of New USB Device Types?

Aug 24, 2010

I recently noticed a bug with ndiswrapper in Ubuntu 10.4 which would prevent the mounting of new USB device classes. This bug has been noticed somewhere else, in particular in at least one older Ubuntu version, but has been carried over. This doesn't seem to be widely discussed, or the solution worked anecdotally, but the problem is actually more general in nature. At the moment I found a workaround that always works, but I don't have a permanent fix.

The problem kicks in only after ndiswrapper module is loaded into the kernel. Devices of the same USB *types* that were recognized *before* ndiswrapper is loaded will continue to work. For example, an USB memory stick will be mounted fine if an USB hard disk had already been used at some point before ndiswrapper was loaded. However, if one plugs in any other new type of device, for example, an USB mouse, after ndiswrapper is loaded, the new USB device will not be mounted. The workaround solution is to disable ndiswrapper before introducing a new type of USB device by doing:sudo modprobe -r ndiswrapper

Then, plug in the USB device. After it is successfully mounted, do: sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

The corollary is that if ndiswrapper is loaded into the kernel upon boot-up, only USB devices which were present at the boot stage will be recognized. But performing the above kludge will allow new devices to be recognized.It'd be nice if someone can come up with a more elegant fix.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mounting A NTFS Raid 0 Device?

Dec 27, 2010

let's say this system has 3 hard drives. Drive #1 and #2 are RAID 0 and Windows7 lives there. It is a hardware RAID, not software.

On Drive #3 Ubuntu has been installed using WUBI - it boots up and works okay - but it does not see the RAID array.

Do I just need a linux driver to be able to see & mount my "Windows" RAID0 array? Or is this even possible? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Causes: Mount: Mounting None On /dev Failed: No Such Device

Jun 17, 2010

I posted a similar problem sometime last week...but a little has changed(mainly I can access my files now): I recently performed the auto upgrade to Ubuntu 10.04 and upon restart of my machine I am presented with 3 screens. The first is a simple "GRUB loading". The second is "mount: mounting none on /dev failed: no such device". The third screen is a series of initializations, i.e. /dev/sda1:

clean, (number of files), (number of blocks)
*setting preliminary keymap...
and so on until it hits the line:
*checking battery status

at which point it will cease loading until i press the power button. The next thing that occurs is it kills all the processes it just initialized and shuts down the computer. I read that this is likely a problem from loading the wrong kernel and I can get into my files (using a boot 9.10 boot key). The problem is I don't know what files to change in order to get my system booting the right kernel.

Software :: Mounting Logical Partition - Special Device Does Not Exist?

May 2, 2010

I have created a logical partition (/dev/sda5) and have formatted it with an ext3 filesystem and given it the label PHOTOS.

# mkfs.ext3 -L PHOTOS /dev/sda5

If I mount it to my /PHOTOS directory manually, it does so correctly. However, when I try to automount, it gives me this message:

# mount -a
mount: special device PHOTOS does not exist

I've entered this line in my fstab file:

PHOTOS/dev/sda5ext3defaults0 0

I'm just not sure what's happening; I've never had trouble mounting a filesystem before. Oh and it's a RHEL 5 installation.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Disable Mass Storage Device Mounting In Rhythmbox?

Oct 15, 2010

I have a 1TB external HDD which I use to store my music library of roughly 40 gigs. Therefore I would normally import music directly from it to my Rhythmbox library while keeping everything stored on the removable drive. In recent versions of Rhythmbox this is no longer needed as the application integrates my external HDD into the side pane and lists the music automatically. This is great although when closing Rhythmbox and reopening it, the drive has to be scanned all over again. This is a huge pain when it has to scan through 40+ gigs of music.

Therefore I would like this feature disabled and removed from my side pane. It is not needed and causes quite a large annoyance. Either I want it removed or the ability to keep the index of music from the drive in Rhyrhmbox at all times. Achieving this would be fantastic and would switch me back to Rhythmbox. recently I have been using Exaile which I love but rhythmbox not working bugs me.

Slackware :: Lilo Multiboot And Initramfs - Mounting True Root Device

Apr 13, 2011

Recently I installed a Linux distro (Pardus) which boots using initramfs. I am completely novice here. In the former configuration I used lilo to boot OpenBSD, Debian and W2k (it is easy for me to configure lilo to boot OpenBSD). But initramfs is a something completely new for me. As I understand it is a virtual file system with a standard directory tree and the information stored on that system is used (to boot the kernel?) to mount the true (physical) root device. The first question is how to properly describe a system (kernel image) booted with initramfs in the lilo.conf.
