Debian Multimedia :: KDE Reading Too Much From Network Drive

May 2, 2015

I have a server set up with Samba. On the desktop side I use KDE. I can clearly track intensive smbd activity, being the first on the iotop results page. Another thing is that after reading from the server's HDD, it seems to write on the desktop's SSD. It does this intermittently.I really want to know how can I stop this. It's very annoying and I bet I don't need it since, using previous versions of Debian, I could go well without this activity.

Debian :: Reading An External NTFS USB Drive?

Feb 1, 2010

I've installed libfuse2 and ntfs-3g. Now when I reboot, the drive shows up in fdisk. In Gnome File system, the folder shows up in /media as /media/Storage. I didn't issue the mount command, it went there automatically. In terminal, I can access Storage and read/write to files on it. BUT, if I double-click the folder in Gnome, I get a brief glimpse of all the folders in Storage, then they disappear and the drive unmounts. The desktop icon goes away, and I can't see it when I issue sudo fdisk -l. I can get it back with a reboot. I've tried an entry in /etc/fstab, but that makes no difference. I didn't find anything specific to address this on this forum or after Googling.

Jan 28, 2010

The drive isn't reading discs. Dmesg says PIO255(auto-tune) requested, PIO4 selected, UDMA33MHz.

An inexpensive drive with many failures noted on Google.

What command would I enter in grub following "ro quiet" to change the mode?

Hardware :: DVD-RW Drive Not Reading Discs?

Apr 22, 2011

Installed Ubuntu 10.10 this morning from CD, downloaded all the latest updates. But when I put a CD or DVD in the drive, I can't access any of the data. Disk utility recognises that the drive is there, but it says "No medium detected".

Disk utility recognises it at /dev/sr0 so I added a line to fstab

/dev/sr0 /mnt/dvd udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0 0

but made no difference

Ubuntu :: Badblocks Reading Drive Too Quickly?

Sep 11, 2010

I'm running badblocks on some new disk drives just to be safe before my return period expires. I'm running the command

Code: sudo badblocks -b 4096 -p 4 -c 65536 -w -s /dev/sdb1 on an empty partition taking up the entire device. I am getting the following output:

[Code]...

1) When it gets to the "reading and comparing" phase, it seems to complete in <1s. I see other posts where people say this takes them as long as it took to write to the drive. I don't see any mention of this being quick, so I'm just afraid that badblocks is being denied read access or something.. Anyone familiar with this behaviour?

2) Obviously since it is on a sixth pass, badblocks thought that it found new bad blocks on the second pass (or later). When I check SMART, though, the drive has not re-allocated anything (despite having plenty of spares)... Doesn't this seem odd? Is there some reason why the disk would not step in upon a write fail? In fact, I thought a write fail should be transparent... Which makes me wonder if question 1 (above) is causing this...

Fedora Installation :: Cannot Boot Into KDE4 - Reading From CD ROM Drive

Jun 22, 2009

I just downloaded the Fedora11 LiveCD and booted it......it boots, but when it starts to load KDE, it takes a very long time, and it never ends. It just keeps on reading from the CD-ROM drive. I can see the GUI is loading, but the loading time is so long that the mouse sometimes freezes. My Config is 512MB of RAM and 2 IDE Hard Disks. Also note that I verified the image with SHA256, and even burnt the CD at two different speeds, one at 48X and the other at 16X. Still nothing. There has also been severe kernel panics on EXT4.

Fedora Hardware :: Reading Old SCSI SCO Unix Drive?

May 17, 2011

I need to read some data from a hdd that belongs to an old SCO Unix system. The SCSI card is PCI so I unplugged it from the old SCO unix box and stuck it in a new computer and booted using a Fedora 14 USB pen drive. The SCSI card was recognized and so was the hdd but it was not mounted. I then went into Applications, Disk Utility, and found the hdd. Under 'Edit Partition' the type was blank. I was tempted to set it to 'Extended' but was not sure whether that could damage the data on the disk. Does anyone know whether I would be able to read this Hdd by setting the type to 'Extended'?

Ubuntu Installation :: Drive Quits Reading Live CD?

Oct 30, 2010

I decided to install Maverick on another PC in the house. I downloaded and burnt the 10:10 live CD three weeks ago and installed it on my laptop without problem.

Now when try to install on this it read the CD as first boot device, goes to the language selection, and then the "try without installing/Install/check disk" etc. I select either "install" or "try without installing" and after s few seconds the drive spins down and thats it...nothing more happens.

I know the CD's fine as I already installed with it and the PC in question currently has a working version of Karmic on it. PC is an Acer L100 and the CD is the 32 bit version.

Update: After posting this I've played around a bit more. It seems most attempts it doesnt want to read the Live CD at all. After trying to boot from it and displaying the copyright line "isolinux..." it jump straight GRUB and boots my present OS. I've just tried the Karmic CD too and the same thing is happening. So maybe points to a problem with the CD drive??

Software :: Corrupted Font After Reading The 1st Sector From An USB Drive Using Dd?

Mar 18, 2010

I wanted to check the first sector of my USB stick, and so I issued:dd -if=/dev/sda -bs=1024 -count=1It showed me all the weird characters from the data, then after it executed my bash prompt became corrupted with the same kind of characters! Also, everything I typed was like that. (see the picture)Luckly, it was just that tty that became like that.How can I fix the fonts after something like that happens, and how to prevent it from happening whenever I use dd again?

Slackware :: Reading Cdrom And External Drive In Dolphin?

Jun 12, 2010

I inserted a disc and tried to access it through Dolphin. It shows up in the directory explorer thing as a disc and with the disc name, but it has a little / thing in the bottom corner of the icon, and when I try to access it, it gives me this long error on the bottom of the file area (can't remember what all it said, something about 'harvey' and being unable to find the directory in /etc/fstab). The same thing happened with an external drive, which seemed to work fine before but now has the same problem.

Hardware :: USB Hard Drive Not Reading / All Files And Folders In Partition Disappeared?

Jun 23, 2011

I have been backing up onto a 60G ext2/3/4 partition on a 1TB external USB hard disk for a year or so now and have built up a few folders of .thunderbird, .mozilla, and other assorted files - using this as my standard "backup system" - but suddenly all the files and folders in this partition seem to have disappeared.

In Gparted and KParted the partition shows up as the correct size with the correct amount of "used space" (= yellow coloured portion), as it does when running offof any CD/standalone OS. And the small bars under the volume names in Dolphin show about the right amount having been "used" too.But however I try to access this partition (or, to be correct LVM I spose:-)) it still always comes up as empty - ie 0 files in it. After months of working just fine.The NTFS partition on the same external USB sdd reads and writes quite OK/normally and also shows the correct amount of "used space" - but even from root I can't see any of the old files in, or read/write to the linux one. It comes up with "Denied"/"Can't Write to.." errors when trying to write anything to it.

I ran a freeware utility called DiskInternals Linux-Recovery from winDoze which, after half an hour, came up with a list showing all the folders and files in the partition. It said that they would be written back onto the hard drive that they were "retrieved" from - but no change happened - still no contents showing when booting up in any linux.

Running a clean install of FedoraCore14 on an AMDAthlonx2 5000 (= 2.6G true) on an ASUS M2N-MX SE PLUS m/b with 2G of RAM

OpenSUSE Network :: Direct NAS Reading And Writing?

Feb 9, 2010

I've been able to get access to our Netgear NAS, I can browse it, copy files etc. just fine. But I don't have "direct access" in as far as, Open Office won't open any files residing on the NAS, neither can I save directly to the NAS form a program and when I get a "Browse for File" form field on a website (eg attachments in GMail etc.), I can't browse to the NAS either. My XP box does do all of this, either through my mapped network drive or even through browsing the network. How can I make openSuse 11.2 use the NAS with my login credentials as if it was a local disk?

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.4 Slow CIFS Reading

write speed: 80-90-100 MB/s read speed extremely slow: 3-4-5 MB/s (really funny - our administrator shoked, but i'm not fun, i need fast lan for work)But when i reboot to windows 7 - i have 60-70-80 MB/s in both directions. Read and Write - nice.What happened? kernel updated and all last updates is applied (exclude kopete-because i use old kopete with animated tray icon).I have to tried many tunes like: "noatime" "directio" and also in /etc/modprobe.d - put conf file with: options cifs CIFSMaxBufSize=130048

Debian Configuration :: Mount Network Drive With CIFS

May 6, 2015

So after having spent the past half year preparing to abandon Windows and come over to Debian I finally made the switch last night only to realize I forgot one important thing... I didn't figure out how to map the network drive on my Windows server (currently learning to replace this with Debian as well) to my Debian system.

I have read about 15 links but keep getting the following error: Mount Error (6): No such device or address

Here is what I'm trying to enter into my terminal (with important bits removed for security of course)

mount -t cifs //xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/Network_Storage/ -o username=xxx,password=xxx /mnt/cifs

Fedora Networking :: Setting Up A Vlan Network And After Reading Several Man Pages?

Sep 8, 2010

I'm currently setting up a vlan network and after reading several man pages I still have 2 questions / problems:

1. I would want to put several subnets into one vlan.Meaning for example, I want to have the following Vlans with subnets:

vlan1 10.1.1.0/24
vlan2 10.1.2.0/24
vlan3 10.1.3.0/24
vlan3 10.1.4.0/24
vlan3 10.1.5.0/24

Is that possible?

EDIT: I found a sample configuration, sadly without any comments, where there are defined some interfaces named vlan1:0 trough vlan1:3. Could that be the option I've been looking for.However in the definition of the vlan1 device it is configured with the subnetmask 255.0.0.0 . I would like to know the mechanics of that option, too.

2. In the wlan part of the network I want to have a dhcp server distributing ip addresses. However I want hosts the server 'knows' (by mac address) to be in a different vlan than those unknown. Is there any way to achieve that? If yes, do I need special wlan access points or can I do it by my configurable switch or by the server?

General :: Why Is Reading A FILE Faster Than Reading A VARIABLE?

May 4, 2011

I don't understand the results of a simple performance test I ran using two basic scripts (running on a high end server):

perfVar.zsh :

#!/bin/zsh -f
MYVAR=`cat $1`
for i in {1..10}

[code]...

Performance test result:

> time ./perfVar.zsh BigTextFile > /dev/null
./perfVar.zsh FE > /dev/null 6.86s user 0.32s system 100% cpu 7.177 total
> time ./perfCat.zsh BigTextFile > /dev/null
./perfCat.zsh FE > /dev/null 0.01s user 0.10s system 91% cpu 0.118 total

I would have thought that accessing a VARIABLE was way faster than reading a FILE on the file system... Why this result ?Is there a way to optimize the perfCat.zsh script by reducing the number of accesses to the file system ?

Debian Multimedia :: K3b No Optical Drive Found

I tried to burn a cd today and k3b told me it couldn't find an optical device. It suggested making sure HAL was running, it is. Nothing has changed except auto upgrades, so I tried an apt-get upgrade to see if that would make a difference. It didn't. Burning has never been an issue before, and googling all day hasn't provided any answers, apart from finding /etc/init.d/hal The permissions haven't been changed.

Debian :: TAR - File Has Changed While Reading

Dec 17, 2010

I am using a backup system with cron + tar. Since the server is very busy, I get often the cron-email: "The file XYZ has changed while reading". This message is a bit annoying and I see it as critical point in my backup system. I believe that this file is then not in my backup. (Is that correct?) Let's imagine the hard disk dies and I have to recover the system and my personal data, and in the night the mysql-table XYZ was not in the backup, because it was in read-usage. I would then have lost this table forever. Is there any way to tell TAR, that it should force the file to be included (if in read-usage, then wait 2 seconds and try again)?
