I am running a Debian/Linux "Lenny" dual boot system and when I try to open my WD passport storage device I get: Cannot mount volume. Invalid mount option when attempting to mount the volume "My Passport".
I've used YAST to include a USB hard disk in the export list and mount it to remote machine with NFS. That worked first time the disk was mounted. On the next reboot I saw that the USB disk was mounted again in "/media" but in new folder and its previous folder existed but empty and was mounted with nfs. It seems that first nfs comes mounted in booting time and then USB gets mounted after logging as a user. USB hard disk finds its folder occupied and automatically creates new folder in "/media". What should be done in order to USB hard disk and nfs to be mounted in the same point automatically on the boot ? The second question : When I mount an external disk to be accessible remotely with nfs I get refused to unmount the disk as a USB device. Is it possible to be unmounted as a USB disk done without unmounting it as a nfs as well?
I've had this external drive for ages, it contains all my music and pictures that I generally share on my network to my family etc... It has been working for years on Ubuntu until the other month I updated to 9.10 and now it will not mount. It still works on my EEE PC, I plug the USB in and up it pops as usual, however, I can't get it to work on Ubuntu 9.10
On my embedded linux box, running on Linux Kernel 2.6.9 embedded with BusyBox utilities.
An Objective are follow: 1/ To figure out how many partitions are on the hard disk 2/ Create a extra partition about 10GB size on the hard disk 3/ Format the partition and mount var on that partition
Only utility to perform above operations I have "sfdisk" utility from BusyBox collection. Which get installed at the time of image flash in to ROM (8mb ROM size). The following is the root directory structure where hdd as a directory mounted /mnt/hdd1
Code: ~ > ls bin etc lib proc sbin sys var dev hdd mnt root share tmp var_init Within /bin sfdisk utility can be used which I tried but no avail.
Code: ~ > sfdisk -l /dev/hda /dev/hda: No such file or directory sfdisk: cannot open /dev/hda for reading ~ > sfdisk -l /dev/sda0 /dev/sda0: No such file or directory .....
I have just updated to karmic, and I found that my external hard disk partitions, previously mounted under /media/disk and /media/fat are now referenced by something looking like a UUID, namely /media/7b096ea4-60ee-46b1-95cd-1851b051c40d and /media/4951-95D9.
Is there a way to revert to the old settings? Any application relying on the files on the external hard disk has now stopped working. While I certainly could just change reference (assuming the UUID does not change every session), I'd rather use the old names if possible.
Is it possible to mount a 2nd hard disk without erasing the data that is already on it? If so, what command must I enter. The system recognizes that the disk is there, I just can't access the data because it hasn't been mounted.

I have a directory /var/log/data its about 80 GB,It filling up quit rapidly.I don't have much space left in the system them So i will attaching another External HDD.My question is that i need to mount /var/log/data to new HDD.So i have old data and pulse new coming up.I don't want to copy data from /var/log/data then mount new HDD to /var/log/data you know what i am taking about is there a simple way like linking or any other.
I am running SUSE 11.1 on a 80Gig IDE HDD, I have added a 160 SATA HDD which I wish to use as storage. fdisk reports it as /dev/sda1 - W95 fat 32 LBA. What would the fstab entry be to make the disk mount automatically on boot, so that it shows on the desktop ready for use.
I have a server with two hard disks SATA (500 GB), I installed centos in one of them, desire to know how I can mount the other hard disk empty and without format, so that this hard disk always appears mounted when "reboot" the system.
Just installed opensuse 11.3 Kdeversion on my laptop. Before installing it on live mode i had a problem of accessing my other drives (NTFS, FAT32 and EXT4) which said HAL system policy...etc mounting error. I could access all drives with root privilege. I thought problem will be solver once i install opensuse on my system. How ever i was really disappointed after seeing the same problem post install. Googled around for the solution and got this link
After this the problem got worse now i am not able to see any of the drives in the side panel. Gone through many forum and posts all discuss about external USB HDD.
well yesterday I upgraded my karmic to lynx. So far so good, overall much improved plus I love the new theme. Now the problem, I share my Firefox/Thunderbird profile (stored in my secondary HD) with WinXP (dual boot box). Since karmic, before I opened Firefox/Thunderbird, I had to mount the 2ndary HD which of course prompted me for a password and then everything worked fine. In case I forgot to mount the disk then Firefox popped the following msg: Firefox is either opened or in use.Now, lucid strangely mounts my HD without a password, more peculiarly I have r-w-e permissions and on top of that Firefox/Thunderbird gives me the silly msg!
Tried to unmount/mount back but still no password. I end up believing that this Firefox hesitation to start (based on karmic experience) is related with the password thing...or not?
I have one hard disk (call her HDA) that contains nothing but a single ext4 partition containing a backup of all my important data. Last night I did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.10 on my primary hard disk (call her HDB) and from there proceeded to upgrade directly to Ubuntu 11.04 upgrade. In 10.10, I was able to read HDA just fine. However after the upgrade, I can no longer mount this drive. When mounting from file browser:
Error mounting: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda,missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so The end of dmesg said the following:
dmesg | tail [ 82.130904] EXT4-fs (sda): bad geometry: block count 122096646 exceeds size of device (122096381 blocks)
my hard disk has a block count greater than the size of my device. I've done my background searching on this and tried a command line utility I've never heard of before:
# sudo e2fsck /dev/sda e2fsck 1.41.14 (22-Dec-2010) The filesystem size (according to the superblock) is 122096646 blocks The physical size of the device is 122096381 blocks
this is as far as I've gotten. This drive holds over a decade's worth of work for me and is extremely valuable. I really didn't think that the Ubuntu upgrade process would mess with this drive, seeing as the Ubuntu install was contained on an entirely different drive. What is it that I need to do to restore my drive to working status?
One of my SATA hard disks stopped responding in the middle of a rsync file transfer to it. I had to kill the process. After that I am unable to mount that partition. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 x86_64 version. Here are the error messages and what I have tried:
~$ sudo mount /dev/sdb1 mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
Here I am at a loss! Is there any way to force checking of the file system and to recover the data I have in there? I have tried the solution posted in [URL], but e2fsck -b <my superblock number> /dev/sdb1 shows "Journal version not supported by this e2fsck."
after installing Ubuntu on one WD 500 GB hard disk and after making mistake and pasting wrong code into Terminal:my OTHER WD 500 GB hard disk that was also in the system (I guess it was "hd1") - died.The problem must be, I guess, I typed wrong code: "hd1,1" instead of "hd0,0".)500 GB (NTFS) of data was on that other (non-Ubuntu) hard disk, and now I can not access it anymore. While booting, system gives "Hard Disk Error" warning and stops.One again: I installed Ubuntu od one hard disk and at the end of instalation I pasted wrong code for GRUB, giving address of another hard disk. Now that other hard disk has error and will not work
I have a sata 320 gb with mandriva linux 2009.1 on it.And it is what curently atached to my cpu. It is shown as 'sda' in the partition table.I also have another 40gb hard disk with windows xp installed on it.It is shown as 'hda' in the partition table . Now what i want to do is attach this 40gb hard disk to my pc and configure grub on my 320gb hard disk('sda') so as to boot windows xp(which is residing on the second hard disk,'hda')Can anyone tell me if what im doing is feasible or not? If it is feasible,can anyone suggest me how to get it working. I know i just need to add 2-3 lines to my grub.conf, but dont know what exactly i need to write.
I had a dual boot (windows 7 + debian), both of them installed in my internal hard disk, with the GRUB in it. I have recently installed a second linux distro (mint), but I put it in an external hard disk. Now the GRUB allows me to boot any of the three operating systems, but I need the external disk to do it. It seems that after the mint installation the GRUB is now working from the external disk (if the external disk is not connected, the machine does not boot.) �Is there a way to change the location of the GRUB, to the internal hard disk of my laptop?
I was using Terminal and browsing a directory in my home folder. My "home" directory is located on "/dev/sdb1". When in Terminal I typed "ls" in one of my directories and the output was garbage. The output didn't show the files in the directory. I think it said something like, "input/output error". Unfortunately, I didn't write the exact error down. Instead I rebooted.The hard disk with the problem is:

Debian and debian based distros issue has a issue that has come to make it self aware to me when I was trying to burn a video on my hard drive with braseo and it won't let me burn more than 4.4 gigs to a dvd with 4.7 gigs of free space even a file that is over the 4.4 gig limit by a megabyte with windows i didn't have this problem. One more thing I have 16 gig flash drive and on debian and debian based distros i can only use 13.1 gigs of it but on fedora I can use all 16 gigs.
I installed an OS on the second hard-disk/partition3 (/dev/sdb3; OS was FreeBSD). Added the entry and when i boot: nothing. I choose the OS from grub's menu, the list of choices vanishes, the background image stays, and there it hangs. It hangs until i hit: ctrl+alt+backspace. I have thought: to hell with it, and installed Debian/Lenny. Same problem (OH!).
I also installed the boot-loader to the second disk (/dev/sdb), hit F11 after the BIOS-screen and chosen the second hard-disk to boot from: a similar problem. It hangs, and the keyboard is "dead". I am clueless what to check for (i checked the general culprits, but with UUID its all a bit of a mess. I would say it looks good, but wouldn't bet on it) Anyone ever heard of something like that? Without error message its not easy to use the amazing Google. I do a bit of grub-troubleshooting, usually it works, but usually i get error-messages.
I made two threads about it, in case they contain useful info, here they are: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions ... sd-827059/ http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=17021
I am trying a network install of debian 6.0 by dumping the contents of a DVD onto my local http server. For some reason the Western Digital 80 GB pata HDD doesn't get detected when I click on 'detect disk', I even tried with a SATA, no luck.
