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?
I just installed slack 13.37. I was poking around a little and I noticed that I have all these modules loaded... yet when I open up /etc/rc.d/rc.modules almost everything is commented out. how are these modules being loaded at boot time?
I have a sony x10mini and it is correctly seen in nautilus and shotwell. But nor in banshee 1.6 (testing and sid) nor in 1.9 (experimental) is mounted. Fact is that I know it works for sure in fedora and debian so I wonder if it a problem of some dependency missing, configuration or permissions. I use the testing distro by the way...
I boot linux off a USB stick on many different computers with different hardware. How can I determine in a script which devices eth0, eth1, wlan0 exist and which hardware devices they apply too? Sometimes a wireless card is wlan0, other times it is eth1 or even eth3! The proc/net/dev file does not inidicate which hardware is installed.
managed to get things working so well on my laptop i thought i'd install ubuntu onto an external drive so i can boot to either xp or Ubuntu whenever i want, when i started up after the install it doesn't recognise the drive i loaded it to and appears to have lost the link to xp. the exact words are:
error: no such device: 4368f21f-d1b6-4c60-8c6b-4d2d38d16920. grub rescue>
what i can do to get my xp back, my wife uses the xp and will kill me if i don't sort it, fortunately the comps unrealiable anyway!
I'm having an issue with dual networking on RHEL 5. My initial question is can the order the ethx (0,1) devices are brought up be changed at boot time, so I could bring up eth1 before eth0?
Some background: eth0 is DHCP'd and using DNS, basically this is my primary network. eth1 is an isolated subnet, with a manually configured IP which has no connection to eth0 or the outside world. When I bring up networking it first brings up eth0 and then eth1, what happens is eth1 becomes the 'primary' network of the host and I lose my connection to DNS/NFS/NIS and the outside world.
If I login and manually bring up eth1 first, then eth0 everyone is happy and connections work. So, I'm looking for a solution to either bring up eth1 before eth0 or somehow make eth0 my primary IP and not have it be clobbered by eth1.
I've got 2 problems:1. How can I use the find command to search for devices files?2. I need to find all files thaare 6 months (or more) old and that have a size of 2 Mo or more. What would the code look like?Oh and also, how can I use the cat command to insert text in a file?
My sysctl.conf in /etc isn't loaded at boot, it does however get parsed with the command # sysctl -p I believe this problem started when I got the 3.0.0 kernel just a few days ago. Does everyone has this problem? Then it's probably a bug.
I've followed the guide at URL.... but my computer is unable to find any Bluetooth devices. Whether I'm using the command line or gnome-bluetooth, I don't get any results. If I plug in a cheap USB adapter, I'm able to connect and use the devices.My computer is a HP ProBook 4330s running Debian Jessie. And as far as I can tell the Bluetooth adapter is a Ralink rt3592 combination Wi-Fi and Bluetooth PCI card. The Wi-Fi works fine, but when i try to connect to a Bluetooth device, I get no search results.
In my last installation of debian (Squezee unstable), i dont have problems with the sound.But with my new installation of squezee, when i tried to activate the volume control (With the gnome applet), the system told me this (Aprox):Volume control cant find devices to control. You dont have the correct addons of Gstreamer or sound device configurated
I have recently mounted my iPod Touch using ifuse, and it works with gtkpod and I'm very pleased about that! However, I'm interested in finding out how openSUSE recognises what devices are mounted? Because the device manager in the task bar doesn't recognise that it's mounted... Dolphin doesn't recognise it and neither does Amarok. Only gtkpod, which is good, but I want other applications to recognise it. Do I need to mount it in a specific location? Currently it's at /mnt/iPhone. Or do I need something in fstab (I'm just guessing here).
I have 3 disks in my PC which are partitioned equally as I use them for Raid 1.The first partition on every disk is a simple ext2 partition for booting. No Raid there. So I mount them as /boot and /boot2 and /boot3. So I can backup my /boot to the other boot directories. That worked for some month and this morning I just want to look if all directories have enough free space left. So I did a df -h and got this:
Code: Dateisystem Grove Benut Verf Ben% Eingehängt auf /dev/mapper/system-root 6,0G 301M 5,4G 6% / udev 1,5G 292K 1,5G 1% /dev /dev/sdb1 122M 29M 87M 25% /boot /dev/sdc1 38M 21M 16M 59% /boot2 ... /dev/sda1 122M 29M 87M 25% /boot As you can see /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1 are both mounted on /boot
Here is what mount says: Code: /dev/sdb1 on /boot type ext2 (ro,acl,user_xattr) /dev/sdc1 on /boot2 type ext2 (ro,acl,user_xattr) ... /dev/sda1 on /boot type ext2 (ro,acl,user_xattr)
This is no Problem for me as I could just remount it correctly, but I would like to know if this problem is known. I did not change anything by now and this PC is a server which is running 24/7, so I can deliver more debugging Information if someone is interested.
My computer has three drives: one with windows7,one as a storage drive, and an ide drive. I have ubuntu 10.04 installed on a seperate partition on the storage drive (+swap partition).I have "/etc/fstab" automatically monut these drives on startup:
When booting opensuse 11.2 or 11.3 there is automatically created a folder in /media to mount my external usb drive (in /media/disk). The problem I have is that sometimes these folders are not automatically removed when I shut down. On the next time boot this device is mounted at /media/disk-1 or /media/disk-2 which throws off for instance Krusader or Amarok. Also the folders that are not removed seem to have really strong permissions such that I can't even browse into them in Krusader or Dolphin. I have to manually clean the /media folder as super user so that when I reboot, they are in /media/disk. Does anyone know how to ensure that opensuse removes the folder(s) upon shutdown?
I have a few websites that travel along with me in my usb stick, and I want to have read and write permisions to files on my usb by other users (i.e.: www-data) actually they have 0700. I'm running maverick (linux mint Julia).
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.
This is probably me looking but not seeing an option somewhere. I re-installed 10.10 over 10.04 by formatting the root partition but keeping the home partition the same, to save me a lot of work. (64 bit) However, now when I mount a CD, DVD or USB stick, they don't appear in Dophin's "Places" window. What have I missed please?
I updated yesterday and now when I start my laptop it goes in to grub rescue mode. I have booted from a 'live cd' and thought I could repair grub from there. In gparted however the partition with ubuntu (sda1) is seen as unknown file system, in terminal when I list the partition table it shows up as FAT16 type. When I try a grub-install it gives this error message:
having my data backed up properly, but it's also in different places (e.g. photos and music on separate flash drives), so I have a few rsync's that I can execute manually, drives are mounted. Unfortunately, it gets confusing very quickly, I'd like a simple bash script that goes something like this (this pseudo-code would be most like REXX):
pair.1 = (/dev/sdb1, /dev/mmcblkp01) pair.2 = (/some/other/device, /yet/another/device) for i = 1 to #pairs
Seems simple enough, but I've never written a bash script and wouldn't know where to start.
Laptop is Dell Latitude C600/C500 with Pentium III 850Mhz, 256Kb L2 Cache, 256MB RAM, ATI M3 video card, HD 20005 MB and sound card is EES Maestro 3i. After trying to do something with Windows 2000 which was installed on the machine, I decided to put Linux without keeping windows on the machine. First I try with Xubuntu (latest version) which was working but slowly, then I found that Debian could work fine on that machine. I have installed latest version 5.08 and was surprised how goodly old machine can work. I solved problems with screen resolution (change from 800x600 to 1024x768) but I couldn't find solution how to fix problem with sound.
Actually I don't have sound on the machine. I looked for a linux driver for that sound card and Dell is only providing windows drivers. Then I found that I can solve the problem with ALSA drivers but I couldn't find the easy way (or any way at all) to install drivers and to get back the sound. When I click on 'Volume Control' (top right corner of the screen) I get the message: 'Volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured.'
How do you find out which driver is being used for a certain device. Say that I run lsusb and I find "Bus 007 Device 002: ID 046d:c043 Logitech, Inc. MX320/MX400 Laser Mouse", how can I find out what the active driver for the device is?Also, is there some way to list all available drivers for a device? Is there a way to change the driver at runtime?
