Debian Configuration :: LVM Partitions Not Getting Mounted At Boot Time
Apr 18, 2010
I have two partitions in LVM. They are added in /etc/fstab to mount automatically. But, they are not working. The process to mount partitions seems to be happening before the service /etc/init.d/lvm2 is started. I can get it mounted using "mount -a" command, but not during the boot time. What should I do get it automatically mounted on every boot?
Does anybody know how to have partitions (not removable media) auto-mounted at boot?It would be great so I do not have to click them for first use.By the way, may it be pre-configured in ubuntu to do that for everyone?
I'm running Debian Etch AMD64, and currently trying to clean up my system in preparation for an upgrade to Lenny. One problem I have is that resolvconf (which is installed) does not start at boot time, but if I start it manually then bring the NIC down and back up, it works OK, with no error/warning messages.
A windows server named SRV is sharing folders for each users in /share/From a Debian computer on network logged with the user session "foo" I can mount the remote directory /share/foo with:smbmount //SRV/share/$LOGNAME /remote_directorythen the prompt ask me for password and when I have gave it the remote directory is mounted correctly.Now I would like to make this at boot time.If I put the same command in the .bashrc, when I boot, the remote directory is not mounted when the session is opened but then if I open a console, it ask me for password and the directory is mounted.This way is not convenient and it would be better if the directory is mounted when the user open his session and using the same password.The point is that every user should have a his own remote directory mounted when the session is opened.
On Debian Etch I used to understand how to change boot kernel parameters with Grub. You could just edit menu.lst.
With the newer Grub in Squeeze I am without a clue! I want to set up a ramdisk, say 128 Megs in size, and add that to my boot parameters so that it is created every time the machine starts. Do I set something in /etc/default/grub ?
I'm trying to stop all boot time messages from appearing -- basically I'd like to have a simple blank screen from grub to xdm.
I tried everything -- used the "quiet" option in grub's config, added dmesg -n 1 to rc.local, changed console=ttySx, set kernel.printk in sysctl.conf to 4 1 1 7, and even eradicated rsyslogd altogether... to no avail. I still see all sorts of messages on my screen.
so as my title implies I like to login to my headless debian box after it reboots yet havent found any info on that. Can someone please tell me of script which I suppose would be used to make vino start as a process right after boot
Running Debian stable. I added the following command to rc.local and made it executable:mount -t cifs -o username=ted,password=computer,uid=mooreted,gid=users "//192.168.1.121/Storage Volume" /mnt/vortexAfter rebooting dmesg throws the following error:
I am running Debian-Squeeze with apache2. However, apache2 doesn't start at boot time, even though there is of course the required script in init.d. I can start it later on using "/etc/init.d/apache2 start". I have checked the configuration with "apachectl configtest" - giving the answer "Syntax ok". How do I get it to start automatically at boot time?

as far as i know Debian "Squeeze" has a disk check utility, but you can't run this on a mounted filesystem. Is there a way to trigger this during boot (before filesystem is mounted) ? I can run this once a month to keep filesystem healthy....
I have a Insprion 14R (N4010) and when I hibernate it will usually restore without a problem, but maybe 15% of the time it will reboot while loading. I would like to figure why, since I'd rather not lose anything... My swap space is 5.9GB, I have 4GB RAM (video uses 1gb, so I have 3gb usable)
I would like to resize the /home partition but it is mounted and when umount is run, it errors with 'busy'.
I installed jessie on a laptop with one SSD. I used guided partitioning and selected the whole drive with multiple partitions. The /home now takes up 420 GB. I would like to reduce that to 20 GB to make room for another partition.
I'm not sure if this is a bug in Squeeze beta 2 or if it's something I've overlooked. I have a Maxtor 250 GB external USB drive that I use for backups. It gets auto-mounted fine, always in the same place, and from my normal user account I can write to it, even delete directories on it if I want to. But when, from Gnome, I select the "Safely remove" option, I get an error to the effect that it can't stop the device. The weird thing is that the thing actually *is* unmounted. I've checked the mount point and it's no longer there.Is there some package I maybe should've installed but haven't? I'm not really worried about data loss, since I'm sure the drive wouldn't unmount unless it was properly synched; it's just the error message that bugs me.
I am *finally* getting around to rebuilding my file-sharing computer. I'll be sharing files with both Linux and Windoze machines. It's a home network, so there's nothing fancy needed. I know I have to tweak my smb.conf file until I'm satisfied with the features and security. I'm using SWAT and I'm starting with a bare-bones conf file. It's not secure but I can see the server and selected files/directories from my other Linux box.
My really dumb question is, do I have to reboot both the server and the client machines every time I change the SAMBA configuration? I thought I just had to stop and restart the SAMBA service in the SWAT software - but then the server disappears from my client. It looks like I need to reboot both machines for the client to see the server.
My primary repos are DVD .isos on my hard drive loop-mounted in /etc/fstab. Although I can install packages just fine and there are no issues with running installed applications, I must have screwed up the configuration of /etc/apt/sources.list because I get this output when I do apt-get update:
Here is my rather primitive but functional /etc/apt/sources.list:
Code: Select all# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.2.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20150906-11:13]/ jessie contrib main # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.2.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 DVD Binary-1 20150906-11:13]/ jessie contrib main deb file:/dvd1 jessie main contrib deb file:/dvd2 jessie main contrib deb file:/dvd3 jessie main contrib
When I plug in my external USB Hard drive which is formatted as a single NTFS partition, it is recognized and mounted automatically, a nautilus window pops open. Unfortunately it is not writable. The reason is: the partition is mounted "ntfs" (which lacks write support) instead of "ntfs-3g". This is the output of mount after plugging in the drive:
$ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE type ntfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077)
I want this partition to be writable by just plugging it in.
The partition should not have any errors because a) I fsck'ed it windows and b) mounting it manually works:
$ sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdc1 /media/disk_/ $ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/disk_ type fuseblk (rw,allow_other,blksize=4096) $ devkit-disks --mount-fstype ntfs-3g --mount /dev/sdc1 Mounted /org/freedesktop/DeviceKit/Disks/devices/sdc1 at /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE $ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/4EBC5FB82435B0EE type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096) $ gnome-mount -nbtd /dev/sdc1 $ mount | grep sdc1 /dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
How can I get ntfs drives to be mounted as writable by default, preferrably without having to modify fstab?
I have 2x 1.5TB hard disks and I'm going to buy a new 2TB drive soon. First though I just wanted to check that I could partition off the first 1/4 to 1/3 of the 2TB drive (leaving 1.5TB or more free) and install Debian to that part, then use the remainder of the disk in combination with the 2x 1.5 TB drives in RAID 5? i.e. can you mix whole drives and with partitions from other drives in RAID 5 and/or is it best to just stick with complete drives for the RAID array?I only have room for 3 drives in the small mATX case that houses my NAS device and I want to maximise storage capacity and minimise expense.
Is there a way where I can take like 50GB from my home folder (I have 375 avail., but using only 22GB) and put it to the root partition? Twice now my system has almost ran out of space on root, so luckly I was able to clear out old stuff so I don't have login issues after finding the hardway the first round lol. I just want to make sure I can login with out being forced back out because root don't have space to let me login.
I have Debian Testing. I am testing XFCE and LXDE and i want to use display manager other than GDM. I have tried SLIM and XDM but when i use them i can't mount partitions and USB through Thunar, PcMan or Nautilus - i get message that i am not authorized (if i do groups in terminal - adm dialout fax cdrom floppy tape audio dip video plugdev games fuse powerdev netdev lpadmin scanner sambashare). When i install GDM everything works fine. I have installed FUSE, HAL, Udev,...I have tried a lot of stuff from AcchLinux forums but nothing worked really.
My swap is not mounted at boot. get it to mount again? I CAN make it mount after booting but I need to hibernate. I read that I have to edit /etc/fstab but I'm not quite sure as to what I have to do specifically.
