Debian Hardware :: Sdparm Not Stopping SATA Disk In Squeeze

Feb 9, 2011

I recently updated from Lenny to Squeeze. In Lenny I used to spin down my internal SATA backup drive like this:

# sdparm --command=stop /dev/sdb

It worked well in Lenny, but it doesn't work in Squeeze:

XXXX:~>sudo sdparm --command=stop /dev/sdb
/dev/sdb: ATA WDC WD2500AAJS-2 01.0

All I can hear is a click indicating drive head movement but the disk keeps spinning.

Debian :: Sdparm -C Stop Not Working?

Feb 21, 2011

I can't spin down my internal windows SATA disk with sdparm anymore. It worked well in Lenny, but not in squeeze. The disk I'm trying to stop is not mounted or anything. Is this something udev related?

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze Adding Two SATA Drives To Existing System?

Apr 21, 2011

Is there an easy way to add SATA drives to an existing system and have them m automatically at boot?So far I've been able to create a partition and format but they never mount at boot.What do I have to put in fstab so it will work?Also, since RAID doesn't work in Debian, is it possible to make two drives mount at the same folder

I own a secondary SATA disk I used without problems. In the last days I updated to 8.1 and after that I was not able to read the disk. The fdisk -l command has the output:

Code: Select allDevice     Boot Start       End   Sectors  Size Id Type

When i access to the disk, i always have the error:
Code: Select allstefano@GhilbaDebian:~$ ls -l /media/stefano/MobileSata
ls: impossibile to access to /media/stefano/MobileSata: input/output error

In the dmesg there is no particular message.

Debian :: Internal SATA Disk Slower When Running On Battery?

Feb 5, 2010

I have Etch running in my laptop. I found that if the laptop is only running on battery, the disk seems to performs slower than if I running on a power adapter. How do I possibly check the setting and fix it?

I'm the only user on the system most of the time and I keep it as minimal as possible so it's not other services and programs keeping the disk busy.

Debian Installation :: Hard Disk Thrashing With Squeeze?

Apr 22, 2010

Just loaded Squeeze (KDE) onto a partition on my desktop and am a bit alarmed by the disk thrashing thats going on? Damn light on constantly. if I didn't know better I'd think I was using Vista. Is this something to do with 'nepomukservices' that seems to be taking a fair amount of cpu time? Not used to KDE 4 so maybe this is normal.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Mount Floppy Disk Using Squeeze/LXDE?

Sep 11, 2011

I am trying to configure my test Squeze install on an older PC with LXDE desktop, and I can't seem to find anything which would enable me to mount a floppy.Then I tried to use the konsole as root mount -w /dev/fd0 /media/floppy0

But although this device and this mount point exist, nothing is mounted. I double checked with various floppies which I know have data on them and none of them are being mounted. The umount command would I expect be umount /media/floppy0 /dev/fd0...I tried searching the web and this forum and didn't find anything helpful. Can anyone help?

Debian :: Squeeze Will Not Show Free And Used Disk Space On EXT4 Drive

Feb 23, 2011

This weekend, I installed Debian Squeeze on my server. I've formatted all the hard disks to EXT4, and I'm using kernel version 2.6.32-686-bigmem.When I tried to install the program saidar, it surprised me why it does not show my hard drives under 'mountpoint' [URL] <-- Saidar screenshot) as I could when I ran with Debian Lenny with the same kernel, but where the hard drives were formatted in EXT3. My laptop which has Ubuntu 10.04 as OS and the hard drive is formatted in EXT4 can easily show the hard drive in saidar.
I also tried to install PHP SysInfo on the Debian computer, but it does not bother to show anything on the hard disks

I tried to check fstab file and I can see that Debian uses UUID to identify the hard drives, but I've tried to change it to something with /dev/sdx, but it did not help either.[URL] (fstab file)

I know that Debian squeeze is very new, but it would be nice if someone could give me a hint what might be wrong, because I am a little tired of all time to use 'du-hs' command To find out how much space is spent on the various drives, since the command is a little slow, since hard disks are well filled.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze Grub2 Error 15 With LVM2 Encrypted Disk?

Feb 9, 2011

This is my specific solution to my specific problem. After updating to Squeeze from my prior Lenny distro (amd64 with whole disk encrytion using LVM2, dm-crypt, LUKS) everything went well - at first. I was duped like so many, thinking that all was well and I could remove the legacy-grub (aka: Grub1) and just use grub-pc (aka: Grub2). As soon as I removed the legacy-grub and rebooted my laptop, I was confronted with:

GRUB Loading stage1.5 GRUB loading, please wait..Error 15 At this point I wasn't sure if it was a Grub problem or a deeper encryption problem - especially after reading that some people had missing packages in Squeeze (lvm2, dm-setup, initramfs-tools, etc.)

Okay, the solution for me.

1. download and burn to disk: debian-live-6.0.0-amd64-rescue.iso[URL]..

2. scroll to and press enter/return on: text rescue

3. choose a root directory - for example: /dev/blah/root (I wrote down the list of possible /dev/.... for reference - this helped me remember where and what I had partitioned in Lenny)

4. choose: Execute a shell in /dev/blah/root

5. once in the shell, I discovered I needed to mount a few of those partitions that I had written down in order to get access to grub-probe, update-grub, grub-install, etc. You may not have to if your partitions are minimal. I you need to use other partitions, type (for example):

Debian Installation :: 'Squeeze' AMD64 Installer Fails To Detect Hard Disk

Apr 20, 2011

Having trouble installing 'Squeeze' 6.0.1a-amd64-netinst on a new AMD64 system.The installer boots and runs fine until it gets to hard disk detection. Then it hangs for about 20 minutes showing a blue screen, during which time the HDD-activity light flickers every 5 seconds. Eventually it says it can't detect a hard disk, and displays a (longish) list of possible drivers; no idea which, if any, would suit.Anyone else installed (successfully or otherwise) on this combo?

General :: Boot From Disk With Both USB And SATA

Aug 17, 2010

I have a SSD Harddisk with both an usb and Sata connection, and I want to be able to boot both from usb and sata but I can't make it work. When the disk is connected with sata anything works fine but when I connect it with usb instead, Fedora seems to boot but then it gives me an "No root device found" error and just sleep forever. This happens even if I install fedora 13 while the disk is connected with usb. I am running Fedora Core 13. I changed my fstab to
/dev/sda2 / ext4 defaults 1 1

And the disk is still booting when connected to the sata controller. So far so good. But if I boot from the usb connection, it still give me the same "No root device found" message. Even more odd is it that if I boot my fedora core 13 dvd, and choose "rescue installed system" it can't detect the harddisk when connected to usb. And there is no /dev/sd* or anything similarly which could look like a blockdevice. Did redhat forget to include usb drivers in their rescue image for Fedora core? I just tried the disk on an other system, with exactly the same problems.

I have now added the LABEL=myroot line to fstab(I guess it have to be uppercase to work) and the harddisk still boot fine when using sata, but it still can't boot using usb. I begin to guess that redhat forgot some usb drivers In fedora Core 13, because the system can't see the harddisk when booting the dvd and entering rescue mode. blkid don't show any harddisks at all and there are no block devices in /dev/ which might be my usb disk. Is it possible to find the uuid of partitions if id add the usb harddisk to a windows computer, and more important: will this be the same uuid as linux will se.

Hardware :: New Sata Disk Not Working?

Apr 1, 2010

I bought 2 new 1,5TB sata disks for my server. But when I plug them in my debian gives a error message: ata2: SRST failed error -16

The debian runs from an old 500GB ide disk and a 160Gb ide disk for the home dirs.

I tried antoher cable, but that is not the problem(or is that other cable also broken...). I also tried all sata modes in bios, auto, enhanced, sata-only. I also tried booting an ubuntu 9.10 live cd. But in gparted the disks won't show up.

Is it possible that the sata controller of the motherboard is to slow.

Ubuntu :: SATA II / Error "ata4: Limiting SATA Link Speed To 1.5 Gbps" - Allowing The SSD To Run At SATA II Speeds?

May 1, 2011

I keep getting this error in my log viewer every 2 seconds: Code: ata4: limiting SATA link speed to 1.5 Gbps I have a dual boot SSD and I have run many SMART tests in windows and linux, (using smartmon tools and the disk utility) and the reports are all 100% healthy..... My research shows that this error represents one of the following:

1. Problem with SATA controller
2. Changing BIOS to allow SATA
3. Changing SATA mode to PATA or AHCI
4. Replacing the SATA cable
5. Allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds, i.e. 3 Gbps

- Does anyone know how to try number 5, i.e. allowing the SSD to run at SATA II speeds? I am lost here and this problem has caused my machine to crash twice when watching a movie in linux/ ubuntu. (It is worth noting that the crashes have only occurred in linux and I have never had an issue in windows, so it does seem to be a linux setting somewhere, hence why I think it is a "allowing SATA II to run at correct speeds issue")

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Partition Sata Disk

I'm trying to install 10.10 on a sata disk. In terminal, dmesg recognizes the disk at /dev/sda. The installer recognizes it as well, but the partition area is blank and the option are greyed out. How can I go on? BTW, on the disk currently Fedora 14 is (fresh) installed and working fine, but a software install script is written specifically for Ubuntu. That's why I need to change to Ubuntu and it's no hardware problem.

Hardware :: Change LVM Disk Sata Port?

Oct 18, 2010

I have Linux system with 6x500 GB sata drives on LVM. I want to change 1 of the disks with larger - 1 TB. I don't have available free sata ports, so I'll add pcie sata controller. I'll add the 1 TB disk to the pcie controller and will use "pvmove" to transfer the PEs from one of the 500 GB drives to the new 1 TB. Then I want to remove the 500 GB disk from the LVM. I want to remove the physical disk from the box and to place the 1 TB disk on its place. But I don't know if the LVM will recognize the disk? I want to remove the pcie controller from the box because the motherboards sata controller is better.

Hardware :: Cannot Boot From SATA Disk - Timeout 10

I have a problem to boot from a SATA disk. The filesystem image was created by our customer and copied to the SATA disk. It is SLES 10.2. When booting, "waiting for /dev/sda2 to appear" appears.

Fedora Hardware :: New SATA Hard Disk Not Being Detected

Feb 8, 2011

All of my computers are second-hand (except 1 laptop but it doesn't count) and I see in my Dell 4600 there are 2 SATA connectors on the motherboard. I picked up a 250 GB SATA hard disk and cables recently and tried plugging it in but the system doesn't see it. I even disconnected all other disks to make sure there wasn't a conflict (master/slave) issue going on but the system still does not see it.

The disk is vibrating so I assume it is getting juice and is spinning. Is there a setting or something I have to do to tell the system to access the SATA? Do I have to look at RAID settings if there is only 1 SATA disk? Can I not have a SATA disk and an ATA disk plugged in at the same time? I want to try and determine if the disk is bad, or is it PEBKAC!
