Fedora :: Display Mountpoint Instead Of Volume Labels

Nov 7, 2010

I'm using Gnome on Fedora 14 and I'm getting picky on how things gets displayed.

I have a couple of drives and the following entry on my fstab:

they mount to the correct directory but in my desktop. I see 2 icons with the volume labels same with the "places" menu up top. Is there a way to replace the volume lables with the mount points?

Fedora :: Can't Start Because Last Mountpoint Time Is Wrong

Jan 25, 2011

I noticed today that my F13 date was one month out i.e October 30th instead of September 30th.Time was okay. I tried to adjust it manually but no success. Now if I try to start up I get to the first blue screeen but then it says something like "last mountpoint date was October 30th = now September 30th which is in the future" (not exact wording). Time zone is correct and not set to network time or UTC. I'm dual booting with WinXP and date and time is correct and Time Zone is correct. System time is correct. So now to get into F13 I have to manually set the system time to 30th October.Which is OK for the 1st reboot but reverts back to the correct date on the next reboot. WinXP boots ok.

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Upgrade To 10 Due To Duplicate Labels

Jan 25, 2009

I tried upgrading from Fedora 8 to Fedora 10 using the DVD, but I ran into a few problems.After verifying the install media, it was no longer able to detect the DVD. Annoying, but I got around this by simply rebooting and then skipping the media check.The second problem happened after I tried to "upgrade an existing installation". It gives me the error "Multiple devices with label /boot detected. Devices must have unique labels in order for you system to work. Please correct this problem before upgrading".My system's working just fine, so I'm not sure why I'm getting this error. I have a RAID-1 setup, so would that be causing the error? How do I correct this problem without wiping out my system?

Fedora :: How To Print Labels Directly On DVDs / CDs Using GIMP

May 30, 2010

Prerequisites :
Make sure you have the "Gutenprint Printer Drivers Package" and "GIMP plugin for gutenprint" installed (add/remove software, search for gutenprint). A printer that uses a tray loading mechanism for printing disc media.

Procedure :
Open/create the image with the GIMP. I find that an image size of 1394 x 1394 is ideal for normal size discs. To create a working area in the image, first create a white circle. To do this, use the circle selection tool and position the cursor at position 0,0 (top left). Then, while holding the shift key down, hold left click and drag the cursor to the bottom right position, which should be 1394,1394. Fill the selection with white colour. Depending on the hub size of your disc you need to also cut out an area in the centre of the white circle approximately 22 mm in diameter. Position the circle selection cursor 11mm above the centre of the image, and 11mm to the left of the centre of the image. Then hold Shift down, hold left click and drag the cursor until the selected area is 22mm x 22mm. Then cut the selection. Now create a new layer above the white circle and create your image, keeping inside the white circle and outside the centre "hole".

If you are using non full face discs, make the centre "hole" bigger accordingly. Create 2 new background layers, one black and one white. The black is so you can preview the image with the correct shape, and the white one is for use when exporting the final finished image for printing. Remember to make the white layer above the black layer, or make the black layer invisible when exporting the image. I have attached a template for your immediate use. Once your image is finished, you should have a white square image, with your graphics arranged within a circle. White is not printed, so you don't need transparency around the edges. Don't put graphics too close to the edges of the circle or you will get ink on the plastic which never dries. (at least not until you have smeared it on your fabulous artwork ! ) Save the file as the default GIMP xcf format to preserve the layers then export it to png.

To print the image onto the disc. With the image open in the GIMP, In File > Page Setup set the paper size to CD - 5 inch and apply. Then go to File > Print with Gutenprint. Use the option to set up printer and find your make and model. Once you have the correct printer selected, lots of extra options become available.

My Printer settings are:
Print Quality - Best
Media Type - Photo paper
Media Source - Print to CD
CD hub size - Normal
Ink Set - Epson Standard inks
Resolution - 720 dpi
Ink Type - 6 color photo
Page Size - CD - 5 inch
(All the other settings are left as default)

On the Output tab there are more options for adjusting the print quality. Just click "Adjust Output". If you have adjusted the output, close that window then click "Print and Save Settings", otherwise just click "Print and Save Settings". It should fire up straight away. These settings are based on my Epson R200, so you may have to tweak them for your printer model.

Ubuntu :: Volume Notification Display Changed?

Jan 31, 2011

When I first installed Maverick on my Dell Laptop, I had a slick-looking notification display when I changed the volume via the media buttons.However, I made some changes to get the media buttons to control the PCM volume channel, and it now seems I'm stuck with this ugly notification that I cannot figure out how to get rid of:I'm not entirely sure this is what borked my original volume notification, but it was around this time I noticed the change.

Fedora :: Dumb Lvm - Volume Group And Volume Names Are Gone From View

Jan 22, 2011

I don't know much about lvm and I've managed to screw up a drive. I had a 500GB drive with FC14 on it and I wanted to copy over a load of data to my new 1TB that was replacing it. I set up my new install the same way as the old...including the same volume names (error number 1 I think) I successfully mounted the old/500GB drive (using vgscan and vgchange -a y etc.) using a laptop (running FC13) and an external hdd cradle. I could access the files I wanted but this wasn't the machine I wanted to copy them to (I was doing this while waiting for the install to finish on the new drive).

When I tried the same process on the new install I found that having two lvm with the same name meant I couldn't mount the external one. So I opened the disk utility (palimsest) and was going to change the name of the old volume group but it wouldn't let me do that. I then thought maybe I could get away with just changing the name of the partition where the files were and maybe I could add it to the mounted group or something so I changed it to lv_home2. This changed the name of my new/1TB lv_home to lv_home2 as well. So thinking that wasn't the answer I just changed the name of the new lv_home2 back to lv_home.

From that point on I haven't been able to see the old drives partitions (the new volume group still works so far). I has a physical volume but the volume group and volume names are gone from view. When I try to vgscan on my main computer or the laptop I had it working on earlier I get:

Fedora :: GVFS Mountpoint /home/$USER/.gvfs ?

Jul 7, 2009

When I use nautilus open my home directory, everything is OK except that the file contents in the home directory are not presented. It seems that nautilus is still waiting and busy.

After that, I try to enter the user's home directory by the Terminal and succeed. I can use 'ls' to display the file in the home directory, But when I use 'ls -a' to print the hiden files, again the Terminal seem to be lock. the 'ls -a' is locked, I fail to 'kill' it.

At last, I find that everything that connects to the behavior which need to enter, delete or just dsplay the /home/$USER/.gvfs will fail and lock, and without any error message.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB - Ntfs - Drive Mountpoint

Feb 13, 2010

I've been able to properly mount my ntfs formatted USB drive with user RW privileges.

The only thing I can't figure out/find anywhere is how to make the drive mount to a specific mountpoint such as "ntfs-usb" instead of "disk" or "disk-1", etc.

I used Expert Partitioner thru YaST and selected "do not mount partition" under Mounting Options and used the info on Swerdna's site to get where I am now.

My system lists the drive as "/dev/sdd" and it's (only) partition as "/dev/sdd1" and currently mounts it at /media/disk.

Software :: Using Labels In Grub2 ?

Jul 12, 2010

I want to generate a grub.conf that will search for my /dev/sda1 based on the filesystem label, not the UUID.

I did change /etc/default/grub to so that GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID="true" and I regenerated grub.cfg.

But I want to go one step further and change the search statements. I notice they still reference the old UUID. I also know grub2 can search by label.

I could use understanding this page: [url]


I'd like my grub.cfg to contain statements similar to this:


Assuming that's the right syntax, how do I make grub2 generate label-based menu entries like that?

Fedora :: Volume Control Keys On Keyboard Don't Control Volume Anymore

Oct 29, 2009

Volume up, volume down and mute keys on the keyboard don't control the volume any longer.They worked before. Hitting the keys brings up a progress bar widget with the volume level unchangeable, set at 0% (which is not accurate at all).It looks like the key mappings or key bindings are working, but there is a disconnect with actual functionality. The volume cannot be changed or muted anymore from the keyboard.

This worked just fine in KDE on Fedora 11 before upgrading KDE components yesterday with Yumex. I am now using KDE 4.3.2 I don't think that it's a coincidence that it stopped working after doing an update.
I updated the kernel and nVidia drivers too, but this problem exists when I went back and tested with the previous kernel, so I don't suspect the kernel upgrade. No info in Xorg.conf about the keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing?

Sound works just fine. I can listen to whatever source I like. This is not a problem with the sound drivers as far as I can tell.I just want to be able to control the volume with the keys on my Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, model Y-UY95. Is anyone else experiencing this?I can adjust the volume with Kmix 3.5 or GNOME Volume Control V2.1

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mountpoint External Usb-drive Differs In KDE From LXDE?

Sep 23, 2010

Perhaps somebody knows this one:

When I mount my external usb-drive within KDE it's mounted on /media/disk.

When I mount my external usb-drive (yes, the same one) within LXDE it's mounted on /media/72F580136411D534.

Not a great deal, but when I use DirSyncPro to backup some stuff I have to make adjustments to my saved settings, e.g. change the target folders.

General :: Setting User Mountpoint Permissions In Fstab Without Uid / Umask

Jan 30, 2010

I'm struggling to understand an aspect of mounting and mountpoints with /etc/fstab. There is a large number of sites and threads that make recommendations using things like uid, gid, umask, and other options. These methods, however, which I've used, are file-system specific, useful only for filesystems such as (V)FAT and NTFS that allow them.My current situation is that I am mounting partition /dev/sdb5 in, let's call it /media/myMount. My goals:Mount this partition automatically upon boot using /etc/fstab...The partition should be fully accessible only to a specific user or group.What I've done is create the mount point in /media:

If user michapma were to carry out the mount, I believe it would work; however, I want the mount to happen automatically during boot. So, how can I achieve my user (or group) permission goals for this and any other such partitions using fstab?The manpage for mount has been helpful, but after reading many tutorials and forum threads, the only way I know how to do it is to have the user do the mounting or rely on the file-system specific options.

Server :: Oracle Database - Mountpoint Read And Writable After Reboot

Jan 7, 2010

We have a Dell PE6600 with a QLA2460 FC HBA in it. Server is running RedHat AS 4.7 (kernel 2.6.9-78), FC driver used is the file qlafc-linux-8.02.23-3-install.tar downloaded from the QLogic website. On this server is an Oracle database running ( Files for the Oracle database are located in mountpoint /u02. The SAN is an iQStor 2880. Since several weeks we suddenly have problems with the Oracle database after a reboot of the server. After a reboot the mountpoint /u02 is readable and writable (tested by creating, opening and removing files).

However, when we try to start the database we get an error which give you the idea that the database is corrupt. The Oracle error is quite a general error. After doing a lot of testing we found out that if we unmount /u02 and mount it again (using mount -a so it reads the /etc/fstab), the database can be started after all. So the database is not corrupt but for some weird reason we have to remount /u02 first before the Oracle database can use it. We don't know if it's a linux issue, fibre issue, san issue or an oracle issue.

Hardware :: Ink Printed CD Labels - Bad For The Computer?

Jun 24, 2010

I recently ordered some custom CDs from a local shop. I sent them the ISOs for Debian and a large colorful PNG graphic for the label. They used an inkjet printer to print the label onto some special CDs. A few hours later, I noticed that the red ink transfered to my fingers when I picked up the CD. Previously, I printed some disks with blue, purple, and yellow, but found no such problem.

I wonder if could be damaging to the computer, ie. lots of little paint flakes coming off inside the computer while the CD drive is spinning and heating up?

Fedora Installation :: I2O Controller - No Volume Groups Found Volume Group "VolGroup00" Not Found Unable To Access Resume Device

Debian Configuration :: Hdd Dev Letters - UUID And Labels ?

Jun 30, 2011

I have a debian 6 system in my basement acting as a media server. Debian is on a separate HDD from the raid drives and there is one external drive. Under normal conditions the Debian HDD shows up as /dev/sdk and the external shows up as /dev/sdl, no problems here because I use UUID for mounting. The problem is sometimes this drive isn't picked up on restarts (its old and I think the issue is the power supply in the base of it, to be solved later) . This wouldn't be a problem but it some how shuffles the drive addresses and the Debian HDD becomes /dev/sde, this in turn messes up a script that does a weekly dd of that hard drive. I am only really worried about this for when I go on vacation and I wont be at home if the power goes out.

So, is there a way to address the entire hard drive (not just a partition) other than the dev file? Why did this change from Debian 5 to 6? I never had this problem before with 5.

In case you are wondering, I find it easier recover from an image rather than do a reinstall, then get all the updates and software, then put in all the backed up files.

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Assign Labels With Ip / Ifconfig

Oct 19, 2010

I am trying to manually set up a number of static IPv6 addresses to one of the physical network interfaces on my 8.04server box.

I tried to use the "ip" utility like that:/ip addr add [myIPv6addr] dev eth0 label eth0:0

which was accepted by ip (no errors) and the IP address was correctly assigned to eth0. But using "ip addr show" I do not see any reference to the label I defined and "ip addr show dev eth0 label eth0:0" does not come back with anything (empty output).

This seems to contradict the information I found on the ip manpage and I wonder if this is a bug or a misconfiguration on my side. Did anyone successfully used the label functionality with ip?

General :: Create RAID1 Array With Given/fix HD Labels?

Aug 19, 2010

I have two HDs (let's say sda and sdb). Both are the same size and have the same partitions already (sda1/sda2/sda3 and sdb1/sdb2/sdb3). Basically they are ready to make a RAID1 array.

Writing with new udev rules, I could create and give fix HD labels with /sbin/scsi_id.

Example: For sdb1 I have a fix device name created under /dev as hd2_boot1, for sdb2 I have /dev/hd2_boot2 and finally for sdb3 I have created the device /dev/hd2_boot3.

With using the command "mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=1 ....", I could create a RAID array.

But, when I check the status one of the RAID devices, like with the command "mdadm --detail /dev/md2", it still shows me as part of the RAID array the sdb* devices, not the hd2_boot* devices. Something like this:

I would like to see basically as member or the RAID array always the /dev/hd2_boot3 not the /dev/sdb3 (like above), is this possible?

Bottom line, I would like to keep the order of the RAID arrays depending their scsi ids, not depending their scsi numberings which is given by the kernel, since the scsi numberings (sda, sdb, sdc and etc.) can change depending the physical connection.

Slackware :: Booting A USB Stick With GRUB2 And Labels

Feb 14, 2011

Here's the idea -- be able to boot slackware 13.1 DVD from a USB stick, but without using anything like an initrd or loading the contents of the slackware install all into memory first. So the USB stick is behaving like a hard drive (but with one disadvantage, just don't take the usb stick out while you're using it!). It has the advantage of saving on memory though .

In the above thread I had this idea working ok but only with slackware 13 and earlier. In fact I still have the CF card with it on, and it works fine. Only snag is it won't work with the newer 13.1.

Right now, I'm trying to use qemu for the following (not what I wrote above!). The idea is to use qemu to install a minimum slackware 13.1 to the USB stick, set it up and then boot from the USB stick itself (so I'm using the USB stick as the storage medium as opposed to say a hard drive image file).

So let's say (this is what I'm doing) I boot slackware 13.1 (32 bit) and make two partitions;


I then do a minimal installation of slackware (just "A" and jed from "AP"). Lilo is not installed as later I'll be using GRUB2 to try to boot.

I'm using a slackware package, grub-1.97-beta4-i486-1.tgz for slackware 13.1/GRUB2.

I then boot off the slackware 13.1 DVD but at the boot screen I choose to boot from /dev/sda2 which is the linux install I created earlier. Success, it boots ok and I can get into the slackware 13.1 install on the USB disk (which is /dev/sda2).

I then label the ext3 partition by using e2label;


And also change /etc/fstab;


Now I need some sort of bootloader to put onto the USB stick so I don't need the DVD any more. To do this, I'm trying to use GRUB2.

But here's the problem!

When I install slackware onto the USB stick using qemu, that partition is /dev/sda2. It's the first usb/storage medium that slackware detects so it gets the name sdaX. (X=1, fat partition, X=2 EXT3 linux).

But here's the problem. Suppose I take the USB stick over to another PC with a hard drive already inside it. Slackware would see the hard drive installed in that PC as (say) /dev/sda1 and the USB stick would then become the second drive, so /dev/sdbX (X=1, fat partition, X=2 EXT3 linux).

If I specify a specific device (lets say /dev/sda2) then it won't work in another system because if I take the example above, another PC with a hard drive installed in it the USB stick becomes /dev/sdb2 and the GRUB2 boot program would be expecting /dev/sda2 which won't work. What I need to do is to somehow find the install, the root on the USB stick automatically without having to specify it manually.

So here's what I've tried with grub (First thing I did was to install grub with grub-install /dev/sda).


Snag is it dosen't work :-( I get this booting from the USB stick:


If I try this:


I get a very similar result ....


So what I'm wondering is .... if the "search" line in grub is doing the searching for the root GRUB2 needs to use to boot from - how can I tell the next line, "linux /boot/vmlinuz-huge-smp- root=...." where to boot from? I can't use /dev/sda2 or /dev/sdb2 because if I try the usb stick in a different PC the stick will be a different device name. Trying to use LABEL= or /dev/disk/by-label/USB/ also dosen't work .
