Debian Configuration :: Fstab Configuration And Timeout - Automatically Continues Booting Even If The Hard Drives Are Not Attached?

Aug 3, 2011

I have a PC104 running debian. I have 3 hard drives (in addition to the one booting) mounted in fstab by UUID. I use the options defaults,error=remount-ro. However, this means that when I boot with the hard drives not attached, I have to press Ctrl-D to bypass when the boot discovers the drives are missing. Is there a timeout commandoption I can add to fstab so that it automatically continues booting even if the hard drives are not attached? I could not find anything on a timeout command. (I tried adding timeout=1000 but no-random guess)

Debian Configuration :: No Boot Without Attached Monitor Kernel 2.6.32-5-686

Jul 10, 2011

since upgrading the squeeze kernel from 2.6.26-2-686 to 2.6.32-5-686 Iīve been unable to boot my HP D510S/845G without attached monitor. As this computer serves as router and print/faxserver, there is/was neither a monitor nor a keyboard/mouse attached. With monitor everything works fine, without monitor the computer hangs somewhere. Unfortunately it hangs without logging anything in /var/log.

Reinstalling xorg and xserver-xorg didnīt change anything, neither was the new xorg.conf from dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg of any use. (After booting with attached monitor I disconnected the monitor and ran dpkg-reconfigure) Maybe disabling Xorg would solve the problem, but I want to be able to log in via vnc and use a GUI - for example to configure mythtv. Up to the kernel-update everything was working fine, so I think some changes to the new kernel are responsible. how to fix it or how to start logging earlier in the boot process?

Debian Configuration :: How To Fix FSTAB

Jan 18, 2010

How can I fix fstab? at each boot, my partitions switch alternatly from sda to sdb and vice versa. Go to past: On my desktop, I've got 2 hdd, 1 ide and 1sata. (Bios priority boot sata) first, I've installed Seven on the hdd ide and diconnected it. Second, I've installed Sid under hdd sata. So after, sda is SID (sata) and sdb is Seven (ide). Since I've reconnected ide hdd, as say above, my partitions switch alternatly from sda to sdb and vice versa. I use Grub2 and UUID, there no move inside these files Is there another file to configure to avoid this?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Configure A Set Of Hard Drives As A RAID Configuration?

Apr 21, 2010

I am currently trying to configure a set of hard drives as a RAID configuration. My system is running with Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client release 5.1 as the base OS. I am booting from CD. I am trying to image a set of drives that have not been imaged before. When the GUI dialog window for disk setup is displayed, it shows a default disk layout including a LVM slice. In the disk layout is a /boot partition already. It is not what I would like so I edit it to be the size for my system and make it the primary partition. I also select it to be a software RAID. I then add three more partitions for my drive 'A' all of type software RAID and NOT primary partitions.

At this point my drives have the correct number of partitions except for showing the LVM slice. I select 'RAID' again, followed by selecting 'Clone a drive to create a RAID device ...' followed by 'OK'. I then get a dialog to select the source and target. i select my drive 'A' to be the source and 'B' to be the target followed by 'OK'. An error dialog is received stating that all the partitions are not of type software RAID. The disk partitions are all type software RAID except the extended LVM slice. I can not get past this point and I am following a procedure written some time ago by a person that is not available.

Debian Configuration :: CIFS Mount Causes 90-sec Timeout Delay During Shutdown

Nov 17, 2015

I'm using Debian 8.2 from a very recent download of the latest NetInst (less than 2 weeks). I'm sort of new to Linux - More accurately, I've used Unix and Linux extensively in the past, so most of my knowledge is dated. In particular, the whole systemd / systemctl paradigm is completely new to me.

Problem: I've added an entry to /etc/fstab to mount a NAS drive as CIFS. When I do a system shutdown or reboot, the system hangs for 90 seconds trying to unmount the NAS. If I manually umount the NAS prior to shutdown / reboot everything works fine.

I've done a fair amount of investigation and web searches, but haven't found a fix yet. Apparently several people were encountering similar problems about a year back, and it seems pretty clear that the root cause what ordering of steps in the shutdown process, e.g., WLAN being turned off before unmounting filesystems. This seems to have been resolved for most users (no one is discussing it any more), but I'm now running into the same issue. Ugh.

I tried to add a shell script to /etc/rc0.d to umount the NAS first in the shutdown process. This had no effect. I assume this is because the new systemd / systemctl paradigm supplants the old /etc/rc model of runlevel control, though it is rather baffling (to me, at least) as to why /etc/rc* still exists if the system is no longer using it...?

Here's some things I'd like to try, but how to proceed:

1. In the new systemd / systemctl paradigm, how do I examine and change the ordering of steps in the shutdown process? I've seen a lot of documentation on systemd, but nothing tells me how to do what I used to be able to do with /etc/rc with a simple rename of a symlink. If I knew how to look at the order of shutdown and change that ordering, I'm fairly certain I could identify and resolve this issue.

2. Is there some other way to mount my CIFS NAS other than editing /etc/fstab? Is it possible that my manual edit to /etc/fstab is the cause of this issue? My research into systemd indicates that it IS supposed to be compatible with /etc/fstab. I have not yet found documentation describing how to mount a filesystem at boot WITHOUT editing /etc/fstab ...

Debian Configuration :: Remote Connection Timeout Error After 10 15 Second Hang

Jan 18, 2011

I have a windows 7 box and a debian 5.0 box connected to a linksys wrt300n router. I can access the linux box from windows 7 through ssh. I used to be able to access the linux box from outside the LAN, but when I was messing with the ssh port configuration (at least I think this was what happened), i lost my ability to connect. I tried writing a new sshd_config file so that it is much simpler:

Protocol 2
PasswordAuthentication no
UsePAM yes

I tried directly connecting the linux box to the internet to rule out a router firewall issue that i was missing. iptables -L yields nothing, as I have since rebooted the machine since messing with iptables rules. But still, when I try to ssh in from outside the LAN, I get a connection timeout error after a 10-15 second hang.

Debian Configuration :: Run Remote Desktop Sessions - FreeNX Connection Timeout

Apr 19, 2010

I have a Debian VPS running Lenny and I'm trying to setup a way to run remote desktop sessions from it. I went with FreeNX, NX client for windows from nomachine, XDM and xfce4. All seems to have installed well, but I can't start an NX session on my box. I can connect to the server and authenticate, but the client hangs on "Downloading the session information," eventually timing out. The log output is below - I'm not even seeing an error message. Any ideas?

[Code]...

The only thing I noticed during install, which was about 400 packages since this was a barebones VPS, was that I should consider recompiling the kernel with CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND=y. I don't know if this has any impact on session information, however, since this is a new session, not one I'm trying to resume.

Debian Configuration :: How To Load Driver Automatically

Sep 21, 2015

I have PCI-device and driver for it - tmk1553b.ko

The problem is to make this device work i have to open terminal after system starts and write

Code: Select allcd /path/to/driver
sudo insmod ./tmk1553b.ko d0=1 t0="TAI" misc=1

But idea is that this PC will work without operator so driver must be loaded automatically. As i realized the solution is to make script but when i try google it shows me how and where to put this script but not how to make it. Also i've tried to put tmk1553b.ko to /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/kernel/drivers/misc but it doesn't work.

Debian 6.0.10 (squeeze)

Debian Configuration :: Booting From ISO On USB

Feb 17, 2014

Want to boot from ISO on usb with grub. Both the netinst and hd-media netinst initrds have no findiso/iso-scan/fromiso option that allows me to locate the iso file in question. Is there a boot parameter that does it? Do I need to download a new initrd version? Is there any debian build AT ALL that allows mounting iso from usb?

Ubuntu :: Setup Two External Hard Drives To Automount In Fstab

Sep 10, 2010

I have set up two external hard drives to automount in fstab with the following lines:

/dev/sdb1 /media/DownstairsBackup ntfs-3g rw,auto,user,exec,sync 0 0
/dev/sda1 /media/UpstairsBackup ntfs-3g rw,auto,user,exec,sync 0 0

And right after I restart, all users have permission to read and write, and everything is fine. However, I have an automated backup utility (BackinTime) installed to back up particular (mounted network) directories every night, but whenever I check up on it the next day, I get the error "Unable to mount ..... Authorization required". (These network directories are mounted into the local filesystem in fstab as well.) Oddly enough, if I run BackinTime by hand as the users, it works fine. I'm running 10.04 LTS.

Debian Configuration :: The Network Doesn't Automatically Reconnect

Dec 9, 2010

I'm running squeeze testing. I have noticed an issue with the way NetworkManager acts when the wireless connection is dropped. I believe it should automatically reconnect but it immediately puts up a dialog requesting me to enter the wifi password. This dialog stays indefinitely until I intervene and click "OK" (the password from the previous successful connection is still there). I would think that something as basic as wireless networking should not require 24 hour human interaction to stay connected. I have considered a cron job checking the network status and restarting it if necessary, but there is a configuration change or something else I can do to resolve this.

Debian Configuration :: Booting Often Only After Third Restart?

Aug 17, 2011

My system is a three days old Linux version 2.6.32-5-amd64 (Debian 2.6.32-35) with an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 60 @ 2.80GHz. It does start, goes through the grub and then spits out strange messages and just freezes before the KDE can be started. I have to restart again, until it really boots everything. This is happening in a random pattern.

I activated bootlog, but as far as I can see, the log only tracks, if the system is really booting. So I also have the dmesg copied into pastebin. These are the only two logs I know, now.

The code of the boot log goes here-
Wed Aug 17 10:24:19 2011: Setting parameters of disc: (none).
Wed Aug 17 10:24:19 2011: Setting preliminary keymap...done.
Wed Aug 17 10:24:19 2011: Activating swap...done.

Debian Configuration :: Making (PPPOE Start) Run At Startup Automatically

Feb 17, 2011

I have to use pppoe because my ISP uses service names, and as far as I know the only program which lets me input a service name is pppoe (inside the pppoe.conf file). Networkmanager is buggy because it tends to disappear from the panel periodically and, worse, it doesn't reconnect (although the option is selected, it does reconnect only once).

So, for peace of mind I open a superuser terminal and enter "pppoe-start" and "pppoe-stop" to have everything I want (reconnects automatically, etc.). Now the question is: how can I have pppoe-start run at startup, automatically, without entering superuser mode, and without having a terminal open for this? Using Debian Testing (Wheezy).

Debian Configuration :: Booting Into A Command Line With No X

Jun 7, 2011

I wanted to be able to have a boot option to just use a command line with no X running at all. What I did was remove the gdm3 link in rc5.d . Then in /boot/grub/grug.cfg I made a new menuentry that is exactly the same as the default but I changed this line:

linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-686 root=UUID=3e926e70-cb92-4847-997c-37aabda532ff ro quiet to this line: linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-686 root=UUID=3e926e70-cb92-4847-997c-37aabda532ff ro 5

This worked. It gave me a command line interface with no X running.

My question is is this the recommended way in Debian? If not what is?

I have been using Linux for a very long time but I used mostly Slackware. I tried Redhat for awhile but really hated bluecruve, shows how long I have been using Linux. I have played with other distros but I always went back to Slack. But I really dislike KDE4 so Slack is no longer an option. KDE4 reminds me of a 12 year old girl that got a big box of makeup and had to use every bit of it. I now am using Debian on my laptop. And as aside I gave my 16 year old daughter a laptop for her birthday. She used the included version of windows 7 for awhile but then asked me what would be a good Linux distro for her. I showed her distrowatch and told her to look at the top distros. She then asked me to help her put on Debian. She loves it. She is a very good musician and song righter, She actually gets paid for doing that at 16, and really likes the programs in Linux to work with sound files. She also does MIDI stuff with our Yamaha Clavinova.

Now we are trying to do things the Debian way and it is a little different then other distros. So did I do the command line thing they way it's recommended in Debian. I have looked on line but all I could find was working in a shell and that is not what I was looking for.

Debian Configuration :: Partitioning The Four Individual Drives To Get Maximum Performance / Space From Them?

Jan 25, 2011

I've got 4 identical 1 TB drives and would like to use them in a software RAID configuration on my home server. I'm running Debian Linux using 'mdadm' utility to manage the software RAID. I don't know how much I've read is fact or dated or even false so I decided I would ask here to get help from people who know more about this than I do. This is essentially just a file server machine to store all my data so being that I've got four identical SATA hard drives, I was thinking about doing RAID level 5. I guess I'll start here and ask if that is the recommended level of RAID. I think RAID level 5 will be fine for my general server usage. My second issue is partitioning the four individual drives to get maximum performance / space from them. Basically just asking here how would you or you recommend I partition the drives? I was thinking about doing three seperate partitions per drive:

/dev/sda1 = 4 GB (swap)/dev/sda2 = 1 GB (/boot)/dev/sda3 = 995 GB (/Now from that partition schema above, obviously all the types will be 'fd' for RAID and the partition for /boot is going to be bootable. My confusion is that I read Grub doesn't support booting from RAID 5 since Grub can't handle disk assembly. If /dev/sdx2 (sda2, sdb2, sdc2, sdd2) are partitioned for /boot (bootable), how would you guys configure this RAID to match up equally? I don't think I do a RAID level 1 on 4 identical partitions, right?
