Debian Installation :: How To Access Unmounted Partitions In Jessie

Feb 6, 2016

I have recently installed debian jessie on my laptop , during installation i didn't mount 2 of my partitions , now when i want to access them i have to give the root password every time i click on them , i searched the google , i found that i have to add a line in fstab file : so i i checked the partition that i wanted to mount (by typing fdisk -l) , and i added this line to the end of the fstab file :

Code: Select all/dev/sda3 /mnt/2 ext4  users,noatime,auto,rw,nodev,exec,nosuid 0 0

(i had created /mnt/2 before ) ..... and this is the output of fdisk -l :

Code: Select allDisk /dev/sda: 465.8 GiB, 500107862016 bytes, 976773168 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x4a373773

[Code] .....

After adding the line at the end of my fstab file , something strange happened , i rebooted the computer and mate didn't come up , it was a console like screen , i had to access fstab from there to delete the line and enter mate . i did this for 2 times and both times the same thing happened . How can I mount my partition permanently ?

Debian Installation :: Automount Of NTFS Partitions (Jessie Old Kernel)

May 23, 2015

I've just upgraded my system and I'm having some issues to boot with the latest kernel (cf: [URL] ....)

Hopefully I can still use the previous kernel (vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-686-pae).

I'd like to watch a movie that is on an NTFS partition.

From gnome-classic, I went in Places->datas (name of my partition) and I get this error message:

Code: Select allFailed to open "/media/mb/datas".

Error when getting information for file '/media/mb/datas': Input/output error.

The result of a df -h gives me:

Code: Select all/dev/sda3      fuseblk    96G   60G   37G  63% /media/mb/datas

mb is the username I'm currently using.

Previously it was only trying to mount the partition (after asking for the root password) in /media/datas

Is it normal that now it tries to mount it only for my current user in another folder?

If I look in the /var/log/messages, I only see this:

May 22 23:53:06 Tieum-Latitude gnome-session[2092]: Thunar: Failed to open "/media/mb/datas": Error when getting information for file '/media/mb/datas': Input/output error

Ubuntu :: Unmounted Partitions Don't Show

May 4, 2010

I just upgraded from Karmic to Lucid and have the following problems:

(1) My unmounted partitions used to be visible in "Places" on the left of Nautilus, so I could mount them when needed, but now they are not there. Also,they do not show in "Computer" view
(2) When I open Disk Utility from System/Administration, there is nothing at all showing - it takes quite a while to start up, but when finally the window opens, no devices or partitions are shown.

General :: Unmounted (and Unwanted) Partitions Show Up In Nautilus

Jul 15, 2011

I have been setting up my laptop as a dual boot with Win7 (yuckkk!) and Ubunutu 11.04. My HP Pavilion dm4 came with 4 primary partitions used by Windows! (Again, yuckkk!) I got rid of Windows_recover partition (I don't remember the exact name) converted that primary partition to an extended partition and then installed Ubuntu in virtual partitions. All that works.What I don't like is that the partition HP_TOOLS shows up in Nautilus, and if you click on it, it self-mounts and makes that partition accessible.

General :: How To Prevent Access To Unmounted Mount Point?

Jan 10, 2010

I'm using some software that using mount point such as truecrypt. I also mount shared folder on other machine (fileserver) and publish it using ftp. The problem is when the truecrypt volume dismounted or the shared folder mount point loosing connection to the fileserver, user can write to the mount point without knowing that they actually not writing to the truecrypt volume or to the shared folder.

My question is, when sometime the server reboot and truecrypt volume is not mounted yet, how to prevent write to the mount point? I dont run truecrypt mount automatically for security reason.Some question for shared folder, if fileserver restart and the shared folder mount point got disconnected, how to prevent write to the mount point?

Debian Installation :: Jessie Won't Boot

Sep 26, 2015

I have two desktops running wheezy for years without problems. Recently, I reinstall jessie on one of them and won't boot anymore.The hardware is pretty normal: Asus motherboard, 12GB RAM, Nvidia video card, SSD hard drive, .After the install of jessie finishes, the very first boot failed, which means it hung up forever. The part that is annoying is that it fails at different places whenever I try.

For example, something, it fails at the following:
[ OK ] Started LSB: REP portmapper replacement
[ OK ] Reached target RPC Port Mapper
Starting LSB: NFS Support files common to client and server

Sometimes, it failed at start job is running for lsb set console font.It even failed to the console. When it goes to the console login, I can't put any user name or password. It's all frozen.The problem appears to be video card problem. But it worked fine in wheezy.

Debian :: KDE 3.5 - Device Successfully Unmounted But Could Not Be Ejected

Aug 10, 2010

Under KDE (3.5) in Lenny, whenever I "safely remove" a SD card, I get the following message
"The device was successfully unmounted, but could not be ejected"
The message is obviously ridiculous, and the crashing windows error sound that accompanies it very annoying.

Debian Installation :: Booting Jessie 64b With UEFI From USB

Sep 30, 2014

I have this new computer (MSI Ge70 2PE Apache Pro) that came with Windows 8 and UEFI. I freed space to make a partition to install Debian testing 64bits on the same HD where Windows is. I had no problem making the partition but after that I tried making a bootable usb to install Debian using the dd command and it didn't work. So I tried with an install dvd and even when I changed the boot order in the bios it didn't work.

After reading some more I realized that there could be a problem trying to boot a normal installation dvd with UEFi so I disabled Secure Boot and then switched the boot mode on my Bios to UEFI with CSM. Again it didn't work and it booted directly into Windows. So I switched the boot mode to Legacy. This time Windows didn't boot directly but I get a "Reboot and Select proper Boot device" message on a black screen.

I now realize that I need to install a UEFI "version" of Debian along the UEFI version of Windows 8. I guess that's why it didn't work with the Legacy boot mode. URL...The installer does not provide a convenient way to install an UEFI boot loader, so you are going to install a regular BIOS boot loader at first, and switch to UEFI later.

Use the expert mode and format your hard drive with a GUID Partition Table (GPT). Create a small partition (1 MiB would be far enough), type it as a BIOS Boot Partition (this is the untitled flag above the “bootable” one in Partman), do not format it and do not mount it: this will be needed for BIOS booting. Create another small partition (same kind of size), type it as an EFI System Partition (this is the“bootable” flag), format it as FAT and mount it on /boot/efi: this will be needed for UEFI booting.

Debian Installation :: Bluetooth Not Working On Jessie

How to get Toshiba Satellite's bluetooth to work. Here is output that I think may be useful.... but I could be wrong. Pretty much everything I have found is outdated, has dead links, or didn't work.

So far, I've learned (at least from what I've understood) it has to do with kernel drivers/modules not working. I'm on Jessie right now since my graphics driver didn't work on the stable kernel.

Debian Installation :: Kernel Backport For Jessie (8.0)?

May 16, 2015

I installed the 32 bit version of Debian Jessie (8.0) on an Asus X205TA. The Asus X205TA laptop is quirky like a lot of Intel Baytrail Atom laptops/tablets in that it has 32 bit EFI but a 64 bit capable CPU, and installing Linux on them is an exercise in frustration. Jessie is probably the first distro to support 32bit EFI out of the box, and the install went surprisingly smoothly. As expected the sound and built in WIFI does not work, but everything else seems to work well.

I spent half a day compiling the 4.03 kernel but it crashes on boot, and I ended uninstalling it in frustration.

Is there any backport of the 4.0 (or 4.1 which is currently a release candidate) for Jessie? Debian also seems to have pulled the kernel image off of their "experimental" repository.

Debian Installation :: Overwrite Wheezy With Jessie

Jun 20, 2015

I already have a Notebook with windows (for some reason it needs 3 partitions..) and wheezy. When I installed wheezy I create 2 logical partition inside a primary one: one logical for /home and the other one for filesystem. Now I would like to overwrite wheezy and get get jessie, but without touching windows and home.

I already try to upgrading and it went wrong, so I prefer overwrite, what I have to do during "manual installation" phase?

Debian Installation :: 8.3.0 Jessie - Some Programs Don't Open

Feb 27, 2016

I have a new installation of Debian 8.3.0 Jessie which I have been playing with and enjoying for a couple of weeks. Ever since I installed the operating system to my computer, I have noticed a few different programs just won't open. For example Nepomuk Back Up and Nepomuk Cleaner. I do not know if these programs shipped with the original installation or if they got installed with a package later, but when I try to open these applications the ball just bounces for a minute then disappears. I went to my package manager and uninstalled these applications and then reinstalled them, but there has been no change in behavior. Gparted also does the same thing, but with Gparted the little ball bounces for quite awhile before it disappears.

Debian Installation :: Installing Jessie In Virtualbox Fails

Aug 6, 2014

I'm just trying to install a Jessie i386 image in Oracle Virtualbox.

My host specs are:
Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Wheezy is installing correctly, but Jessie is not. It fails during the partitioning of the disk, and gives an error message like: unable to write to disk, start = 236342 length = 0. This is not the exact message but I'm unable to try again at the moment.

When I install Wheezy and apt-get update / upgrade to Jessie, I get a black screen after reboot..

Debian Installation :: Tty2 To Tty6 Have Disappeared In Jessie

Nov 14, 2014

I just installed Jessie amd64 for the first time. Few problems so far, but Alt-F2 to Alt-F6 no longer switch to another tty - there's just a black screen with a flashing cursor that doesn't respond to keystrokes. I rely on being able to switch between ttys a lot, so this is inconvenient.

I've searched and found a workaround for grub2, but I'm using grub-legacy (and don't want to switch to grub-pc as it's over complicated IMO). Graphics hardware is AMD 780G/SB700 (using firmware in firmware-linux-nonfree).

Debian Installation :: How To Install Libpam-mount On Jessie

Dec 4, 2014

I have been building a debian jessie system reasonably successfully but have come unstuck with libpam-mount. On a previous Ubuntu saucy system I simply installed it, created the appropriate pam_mount.conf.xml file and mounts would happen when users logged on and dismount on logoff. With jessie I can see that there is a libpam-mount package in main but when I try apt-get install it fails. If this package has been obsoleted (as one of the messages indicates might be the issue) what is the jessie way of handling this?

Here is my sources.list
Code: Select alldeb jessie main non-free contrib
deb-src jessie main non-free contrib

Debian Installation :: Install Jessie From RC1 Or Do Upgrade From Stable?

I installed Jessie with the RC1. URL...A2) The network install images for testing (jessie) can be found at URL...However, unless you want to test the installer for testing the better choice is to use the stable installer to install a minimal stable system and then upgrade to testing by changing your /etc/apt/sources.list file.

Debian Installation :: Custom Keyboard Layout On Jessie

May 23, 2015

I was using a custom layout for my keyboard as I've a UK laptop but still use french accents sometimes. After the update from Wheezy to Jessie my configs disappeared so I have put them back:

- Defining my layout here: /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/gb
- Adding here: /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.xml and here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml in the gb configItem

Code: Select all       <variant>
            <description>English (UK with french accents)</description>

- Adding the declaration of the layout here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/base.lst and here /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.lst

Code: Select all  accentsFR       gb: English (UK with french accents)

So everything looks alright, if I go to System Tools -> Preferences -> Settings -> Keyboard -> Input Source my layout is well selected and I can even see the correct layout by clicking on the keyboard icon (cf my snapshot)

Here is the snapshot of the keyboard input source settings: [URL]....

Debian Installation :: Jessie 8.1 - Mirror Does Not Support Specified Release

Jun 17, 2015

I am doing a new Debian install on an older Dell laptop (Latitude D520, but that should not matter). I downloaded the net install .iso, burned it to disk, and ran it. Everything was progressing like any other installation I have done until I was asked to pick the mirror. I chose like I normally do and it was rejected. When I checked the output on virtual console 4, I am seeing the message "mirror does not support the specified release (jessie)."

I tried a bunch of random mirrors, including international ones, and they all give me that message.

Debian Installation :: Jessie Install With Switchable Graphics

Jul 20, 2015

Somehow got it partly to work. I have a new installation and I am using the 4.1 kernel now. I can switch on the Radeon chip which is great, but still have some trouble when trying to turn it completely off.

I have an Acer Aspire 4820TG Laptop with:
Core: i7-640M
integrated graphics: Intel
discrete graphics: Radeon Mobility 5650HD

I have installed Debian Jessie. After installing the non-free firmware for my ATI chip (following [URL] .....) so I could use vgaswitcheroo, the system broke.

The problem looks as follows: When I start the system the graphical login screen gets stuck and the console tells me first:

Code: Select allradeon 0000:01:00.0: Userspace still has active objects!

then a lot of numbers, then

Code: Select allradeon 0000:01:00.0: ring 5 stalled for more than 10000 msec
[drm:uvd_v1_0_ib_test] *ERROR* radeon: fence wait failed (-35).
[drm:radeon_ib_ring_tests] *ERROR* radeon: failed testing IB on ring 5 (-35).

and this repeats once (or twice?) until several new messages arrive.

Those pause at

Code: Select allFixing recursive faul but reboot is needed !

Then again lots of more error messages until the everything freezes, with the last message

Code: Select all---[ end trace 13dfd971ff8e0aed]---

(Might contain typos. I don't know how to get the whole messages since the system dies a minute after booting and I only have a few seconds after the error messages start)

Even when I prevented the xserver from starting at boot I still got the same problems.

I would very much like to be able to switch between my chips, because I can only use external monitors when the ATI chip is active, but I would also like to be able to use the battery saving internal chip option.

I also tried to install the proprietary driver (though I would prefer if I didn't have to do that), but I couldn't get the xserver to work while it was installed.

lscpi output:
Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Core Processor DRAM Controller (rev 18)

Debian Installation :: Creating And Booting Jessie Installer

Aug 15, 2015

I am installing Jessie to a dual-boot Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop currently booting Windows XP + Ubuntu 9.04. I downloaded the small installation image:

Select all//
and created a live dvd using growisofs.

The Jessie install documentation says: "If you downloaded an iso image, check that the md5sum of that image matches the one listed for the image in the MD5SUMS file that should be present in the same location as where you downloaded the image from." For the downloaded image this produced the result

Select all~$ md5sum debian-8.1.0-i386-netinst.iso
095a83b715e1b74b6d30b2259275f4af  debian-8.1.0-i386-netinst.iso

There is no MD5SUMS file in the download directory. There is an md5sum.txt file included in the iso image: this lists the md5sum of every file in the image, but not that of the image itself. The check for the burned dvd was successful :

Select all~$ dd if=/dev/cdrom | head -c `stat --format=%s debian-8.1.0-i386-netinst.iso` | md5sum
645120+0 records in
645120+0 records out
330301440 bytes (330 MB) copied, 1.28047 s, 258 MB/s
095a83b715e1b74b6d30b2259275f4af  -

Is this a documentation error ? I next booted the laptop from the live installer dvd. After generating a number of messages, it stopped displaying a message along the lines of: "Invalid video mode - press Enter to select a mode".

I assumed it would wait for me but it soon rushed on, producing screeds of segmentation fault error messages, eventually slowing down to a rythmic display of:

Code: Select all*** Error in Xorg:free() invalid pointer: 0xb7101ce3

***Surely it should have waited for me to press Enter?

Debian Installation :: Upgraded To Jessie 8.2 Now Boot Hangs

Dec 4, 2015

I had Debian 7.9 up and running like a charm until yesterday. Today I did the upgrade to 8.2, now boot hangs. I see 3 boot entries for the new kernel now -

Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 (sysvinit)
Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 (recovery mode)

The latter 2 entries have no problem booting up. So do the previous kernel( entries. Only the first one hangs, for which I see these 6 lines on the console:

[ 0.214704] pnp 00:04: can't evaluate _CRS: 12298

How can I make it boot up like others?

Debian Installation :: Upgrading One Particular Package From Jessie To Stretch

Jan 8, 2016

I have installed Package: gnumeric (1.12.18-2) in my Jessie/Mate system. It is very jittery on scrolling, and I was wondering if I should upgrade to the version (1.12.26-1) in stretch(testing), as there seem to have been a large number of bugfixes.

I have tried the following simulation command, but it gives the error message shown:

Code: Select all~# apt-get --simulate -t stretch  install gnumeric
Reading package lists... Done
E: The value 'stretch' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

The documentation suggests that I may need to create an apt preferences file. I do not have any of the following files mentioned by the apt-get man page:


What I would like to do is upgrade just the specific package jessie/gnumeric(1.12.18-2) to stretch/gnumeric(1.12.26-1). I do not want any other packages to be inadvertently upgraded to stretch. I have seen warnings that one can easily end up with a badly mixed system and I wish to avoid that! I also do not want to disturb the standard apt-get update, which I am running daily via anacron at present.
