Debian Multimedia :: Can't Mount Usb Stick From Konsole (lenny)

Nov 19, 2010

Due to a bug that will be fixed at squeeze (I'm running lennyx64), I can't mount ntfs partitions from gui interface (or else, directories with non-English characters will be ignored).

So I'm mounting with disk-manager (hd partitions only), or from konsole. Obviously, mounting from konsole, is the only option for usb flash sticks.

Suddenly, just out of the blue, today debian stopped mounting ntfs partitions from konsole. Since this was my only option for mounting safely my friend's sticks, I have a big problem right now.

I can't figure out many things from the error message:

Debian :: Unable To Mount USB Stick

Jun 13, 2011

When I plug in my USB stick (with fat32 filesystem, labeled flash8p1) and then try to mount it from the Places menu, I get an error box that pops up: Unable to mount flash8p1 Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail  or so

I don't understand what the dmesg is telling me, but here it is for those who may understand:

$ dmesg|tail
[14076.617192] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
[14076.619599] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
[14076.619620]  sdc: sdc1
[14076.623348] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through


I just got my Gnome-flavored Squeeze running this morning, and I'm still working out the configuration. I have disabled automounting and autobrowsing of removable media, but anyway this problem was occuring when I had automounting enabled. I have the OS installed to a 4-GB microSDHC card plugged in to the front of the computer. The computer is a Toshiba Mini NB505.

edit: And now, I just plugged the flash8p1 into a different USB port, and it mounted from the places menu. I wonder, though, if this is related to the fact that I had first mounted it from the command line.

Debian Multimedia :: Perl Locale Error When Starting Konsole From Konqueror

Jul 2, 2010

Funny problem just began occurring in Debian Lenny.

If I use Konqueror to start Konsole (by pressing F4) and then run:

perl -le '{print "hello"}'

The result is:

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LANGUAGE = (unset),
LC_ALL = (unset),
LANG = "en"
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

If I start Konsole directly, I do not receive any such errors.

Debian :: Unable To Mount Ext4 Partition In Lenny?

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Mount Drive After Upgrade To Lenny

Jan 17, 2010

Basically, I have no trouble booting off a really old kernel like 2.6.18-6. If I try to boot off the newest one installed with Lenny, I get errors such as "mounting /dev/ on /root/dev failed...ditto for /sys on /root/sys" almost as if it's failing to find the drive. This finishes up with "target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init" and I'm dropped into a busybox shell.It's an ordinary SATA drive, which is being used as an OS drive only. It seems as if something has changed with the newer kernel, but I have no idea where to start or what to look for.

Hardware :: Mount Western Digital USB 2.0 2TB On Debian Lenny 5.0.6?

Oct 22, 2010

user@debian:~# mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /media/cdrom
#To check what is mounted
user@debian:~# mount
/dev/sda5 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)


The question is how do I get the system of WD to load onto Debian 2.6.26-2-686? I am guessing either the version of Debian Lenny I have is too old to be compatible?

General :: Debian Lenny 2.6.34 Kernel Panic - Not Syncing VFS - Unable To Mount Root Fs On Unknown-block(0,0)

May 17, 2010

I have attempted to install kernel 2.6.34 and 2.6.33 kernels with this Debian howto [url] Everything worked without any errors until I went to boot into the new kernel. When I receive this kernel panic output Kernel panic - not syncing VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)

It also spits out something about being unable to access ext2 FS. I googled this symptom and have seen that it is fairly common, but everyone's error seems somewhat unrelated. I used the same kernel configuration as the one that is currently working, to keep things simple.

And here is what my menu.list looks like:

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound In Lenny?

May 2, 2010

recently installed lenny (5.0.4). I can't get any sound whatsoever (except pc speaker). I had to muck around with vlc to get video working, that works fine but there's still no sound. I have a C-media CMI8738 sound card, I've run alsaconf in root which seems to work fine, I've mucked around with alsamixer (v1.0.16) changing volumes and muting things but haven't had any change. Computer is an AMD Athlon xp2500.

Debian Multimedia :: Lenny Hangs After GDM

Jul 14, 2010

I have a computer that is off the internet. It usually works right since I took great care to make it as 'clean' as possible from outside forces.Lately it just hangs whenever GDM is about to start.How to troubleshoot?

I tried a live CD SystemRescueCD, it works even the desktop environment works. so I e2fsck the partitions of the hard drive okay, memory test/checked the 1.2GBRAM -- passed other than these, I have no clue how to troubleshoot.Oh, I also used an nvidia driver which I forgot how I did it because it was installed almost a year ago.

Debian Multimedia :: Lenny Compatible VLC 1.0.5 - 32 - 64 Bit And Sources

Mar 2, 2010

I had to build it with nls (locales) and the mozilla-plugin disabled, due to the Lenny libc6 causing problems.

Link (about 40 Mb): [url]

Big and Free link: (may disappear): [url]

64-bit debs only (about 9 MB): [url]

I have had reports of the aspect ratio being weird for ATI cards, as well as no full screen, but it works fine in the Virtual Box Lenny, as well as on my Intel graphics.

You will also need the lenny-backports repo, to get some missing or updated libraries. see

You would need to install the vlc-data deb first, then you can install the rest of the debs: (except for the -dbg version, unless you need it) dpkg -i *386.deb

If you have missing dependencies, you get an error=1, so get the missing dependencies with aptitude -f install or apt-get -f install. You may have to manually install the lenny-backports libraries if you have trouble. You actually don't need the -dev, dbg, and most of the other libraries, so you may want to look at what the vlc metapackage needs and install those.

Debian Multimedia :: Installing LibGLEW 32 Bit On 64 Bit Lenny

Mar 3, 2010

I'm running 64-bit Debian lenny, and am trying to run a 32-bit program that requires libGLEW. I've installed libGLEW using apt-get install libglew1.5, but when I try to run the program I get the error: error while loading shared libraries: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

It seems the default install of libGLEW is in 64-bit mode, and the program can't use the 64-bit libraries. It looks like I need to install libGLEW in 32-bit mode, but I've no idea how to do that.

Debian Multimedia :: VLC - No Enque Option On Lenny?

May 18, 2010

I`m using the VLC player available for Lenny. I used VLC in other distributions and it always played mkv`s fine and had an option to have only one instance of VLC running, so it would enque added files. But the Lenny version doesn`t seem to have it and doesn`t play mkv files as smooth as Lennys default player, which is odd.

I`m fine using the inbuilt player for mkv`s but is there an option to have just one instance of vlc? I like to click files and just have them added to the current playlist rather than have them all open in new instances of the program.

I now have a newer vlc installed, with enque and other newer features than the default, thanks to following the advice of and using packages built by stevepusser.

Debian Multimedia :: KDE - Format A Usb Stick - Micro Sd Card?

Aug 24, 2011

For the last several weeks i've been trying KDE and it's been working quite fine. There are however several minor issues with KDE.

First - how can i format a usb stick? In GNOME after the usb stick has been plugged in one just have to right click on it and select "Format". Here i don't see such an option. I googled it and i read somewhere that the tool for this would be KDE partition manager. I installed it but it looks like an overkill for the task. KDE partition manager is high level tool like GParted, whereas i'm looking for something that integrates into the desktop so i can just right click on the usb drive and select format. Besides KDE partition manager asks for a root password which is logical because it can format all your partitions. However i don't see the need for a root password when one is going to format a usb drive.

Second - i tried to use my micro sd card yesterday and while it mounted automatically i couldn't write anything on it or delete any of the files on it ( didn't have this problem with the usb stick though). How can i change that? I have a default Debian install with a nearly default KDE 4.6.5. In GNOME the SD card was always mounted writable by default.

Third - i am using Iceweasel, Rhythmbox and GIMP which are GTK applications. To make them look OK in KDE i installed gtk2-engines-oxygen and kde-config-gtk-style and i also installed the Oxygen KDE Firefox theme (from here [URL]). I then configured the GTK applications to use the oxygen engine and Rhythmbox and GIMP look perfectly OK (i've attached a screenshot at the bottom of my post) however Iceweasel doesn't look completely OK. The problem is that the color scheme of the window is slightly darker than the color scheme of the upper window border - i've attached screenshots of Rhythmbox and Iceweasel so you can compare. I've tried KDE 4.7 with Arch Linux and Firefox there looks OK just like Rhythmbox. It is a small detail but it bugs me...

Fourth - i have problem with the KDE theme for Firefox which i've installed. Without it Iceweasel doesn't look that good. With it, the find menu (activated with ctrl+f) doesn't work - instead of the regular search field just a very small box appears. I've posted a screenshot for that as well.

Debian Multimedia :: Installing Nvidia Drivers In Lenny?

I'm trying to follow the guide here: [URL] but I've run into a snag in the 'Overview' part: "0. Make sure APT has non-free and contrib sources (consult the sources.list(5) man page for help on doing this) " The link provided [URL] is dead. With only a basic understanding (next to none) of what the sources.list is for, I'm unsure how to fulfill step 0.
