Installed ubuntu 10.4 on a formatted hard drive IDE. desktop has two other drives , one SATA drive and one SCSI drive. SCSI drive has windows.
Both windows and ubuntu load fine through GRUB2 etc
I had installed WUBI before on the SATA drive and then i uninstalled it.
problem is that when i log in to Ubuntu i see on fdisk
But i cannot access the SATA drive /dev/sda i tried mounting the drive but i get an error saying this is mounted as /dev/sdb5
How do i mount the SATA drive to get access to the drive ? i messed around with this drive when i was using WUBI. i.e. tried to mount it to recover grub but never got it working. Now somehow it seems that this old mounted drive is messing with my current Ubuntu install.
How to recover my fstab is shown below:
Changed the connect sequence in BIOS and mounted the volume using sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1
With a 1Tb USB drive plugged in, we'll call it "TheDrive", I boot my machine and "TheDrive" is mounted automatically. The icon is on the desk-top. "TheDrive" mounts to /media/TheDrive. Everything is fine. But, I would like to automatically mount the drive in my file tree at the location /mnt/TheDrive. I would not like to have the drive automatically mounted to /media/ and appear on the desktop. I know that this requires the use of fstab; but, I do not know what to add to this file.
so i used to have my harddrive mounted in fstab, to /mnt/diskS. than i decided to change the permissions to 766 global i believe i read somewhere with chmod. anyways so after that i checked to see if it worked and to my dis believe all my files are gone. or just arnt showing, the space taken up hasnt decreased but i just cant see any of my files. so i decided to take the harddrive out of fstab and restart my computer. and after restart when i click on the folder the harddrive is mounted in it says permissions belong to 1000?
I have centos 5.3 installed. I plugged in a WD usb external HD, Icon is showing up on desktop everything is working formatted with ext3. I would like to have an entry for this in my /etc/fstab file, and I need to know how to enable Quotas on some files on it.
I run a headless Ubuntu 8.04 server, which acts as a web, email and file server. I am sticking with 8.04 as it is a LTS release and will upgrade to the next LTS when it is released.
I have two external USB drives, that I need to mount at boot. I have been using /etc/fstab up until now, with the following entries:
However, as I gather from doing searches is quite common, occasionally I get an error during boot (causing the system to drop to a recovery shell) because the USB drives take time to wake up and the system hasn't found them by the time it reads /etc/fstab.
From doing searches, it seems there is nothing you can do to fstab to fix this, so you need to mount them using an rc.local script instead, using:
The problem is, as I have two USB drives, their /dev/sdxx location changes between boots. I thus want to use UUID codes as I do in fstab, however I haven't found anything about this.
Does anyone know how I can use the mount command and UUID to mount a drive in rc.local and what options I have to use the mount the drive with the same options that I am using in my fstab entry? Obvisouly, I can't refer back to fstab using the mount command, because then I will still get the boot error issue if they are listed in fstab. And there is no space internally for the USB drives as there is already two internal drives.
I have two NTFS volumes I want to automount at boot. I can't get my user account to mount them in Fedora 10. I keep getting the message that the two lines I have edited in fstab are bad. The volumes are sda2 and sda8, and the volume names are SPACELAB and Spaceman. I also need to be able to mount an NTFS usb drive from time to time. I am getting frustrated, so I have posted my fstab file below,
# # /etc/fstab # Created by anaconda on Sun Mar 1 12:44:11 2009 #
I had a drive that kept kernel panic'ing so my data center recommended using the spare hard drive to reinstall OS on, and import the data from the old drive. (they checked the hardware, it wasn't the hardware) The new install is done, and I need to mount the old drive and get backups off it since my data center does not provide management whatsoever.
It's the same OS on both (Cent OS 5.4 32-bit) I'm an advanced user on windows, but linux gets me. I can ssh in, do basic stuff like setup IP ranges and restart services. I normally navigate the box through SFTP so I have a gui. WHM shows me my drives as such
Found Disk: hda Found Disk: sdb
so I'm assuming SDB is my old drive and the drive I need to access. I attempted to follow instructions on
I am running SUSE 11.1 on a 80Gig IDE HDD, I have added a 160 SATA HDD which I wish to use as storage. fdisk reports it as /dev/sda1 - W95 fat 32 LBA. What would the fstab entry be to make the disk mount automatically on boot, so that it shows on the desktop ready for use.
I purchased a new hard drive, plugged it in, formated it, edited fstab to auto mount it, and though it is mounting the drive, it won't allow me write privileges. I can read the drive, but I need root access to write to it. The drive giving me the issue is sdd1. The others, I have no problems with. I can read and write to those without a hitch.
I'm new to Fedora. Is there an instruction manual. I'm using Fedora 14. I found under documentation a manual for musicians and amateur radio enthusiasts, but not for regular users. I'm using a black widow, which is a holder for hard drives that connects thru USB. I'm trying to mount it. The file system is Ext4.
I remember seeing it a LOT on Windows Vista *Formerly the primary before it was mine* and later on Ubuntu, it was just there, I wasn't able to install Ubuntu to it nor install Fedora to it, it was just there. The laptop was originally supposed to have up to 160GBs but instead all I get is a 60GB HDD and another 60GB HDD that I couldn't do much but put media on it... In which I plan on doing now, but on Fedora it isn't automatically mounted so... What do I do to mount the HDD? I've found a guide about it but it was outdated, I think around 2004,and I don't want to trust it unless I know it's safe. Any way, what do I have to do? Also, I've a question I've asked myself over and over, 60 and 60 don't add up to 160, where's the other 40GBs?
I really need some help here, this is driving me mad. I edited my fstab file to boot a partition on start up, only instead of typing sda7 I typed sda1 by mistake and now can't boot. The problem that is driving me mad is I cannot save changes to fstab from a live cd because I do not have root permissions. I am relatively new to Linux and have no idea how to use the fedora install disk or the commands to use or if it will let me save changes to the file. I cannot believe something so easy to fix does not appear to be possible because i can't save changes to the fstab on my fedora install.
well yesterday I upgraded my karmic to lynx. So far so good, overall much improved plus I love the new theme. Now the problem, I share my Firefox/Thunderbird profile (stored in my secondary HD) with WinXP (dual boot box). Since karmic, before I opened Firefox/Thunderbird, I had to mount the 2ndary HD which of course prompted me for a password and then everything worked fine. In case I forgot to mount the disk then Firefox popped the following msg: Firefox is either opened or in use.Now, lucid strangely mounts my HD without a password, more peculiarly I have r-w-e permissions and on top of that Firefox/Thunderbird gives me the silly msg!
Tried to unmount/mount back but still no password. I end up believing that this Firefox hesitation to start (based on karmic experience) is related with the password thing...or not?
I am using CentOS 5.5 OS. I already install ntfs-3g rpm, but I don't know the command to mount network NTFS drive. I also want to mount it on my fstab file, so whenever it reloads, it can automatically mount on the specific folder.
I have 4 hard drives in my computer. 1 for may root and home partitions. 2 extras for storage and 1 for Windows. I have the hard drive with my root and home partitions set as the first hard drive in the bios. However, in the Ubuntu setup it isn't the first one in the list. I would have thought that the first drive would be get set to sda. That is not the case.
I have installed a cable that connects from the CPU's SATA motherboard connection to a removable drives' ESATA connection.I would like to be able to swap drives on the ESATA connection and have all users be able to read and write to these drives.I have created the directory /archive/ where I would like the drive(s) to mount.The drives are all formatted Fat 32 - but in the future I may use HFS for formatting.When I used the command (as root):mount /dev/sdc1 /archivethe drive was mounted (but read only)What can I use in my /etc/fstab file that will allow drives to be mounted and unmounted by all users on the system? (both reading and writing)Also, will I be able to mount and unmount these drives without shutting down? or will I need to reboot every time I want to change drives?
I'm trying to set up some shares on this pc and every time I try to edit the /etc/exports file I get this error. I get the same error when I try to edit /boot/grub.conf file or any other files. Does not matter what editor I use. I'm running f14.
I purchased a Seagate Goflex 500GB external hard drive yesterday and tried to connect it with my Fedora machine. Unfortunately my machine could not mount the drive. I have never had such problems earlier with other USB drives.PLease, how to use this ext disk on the fedora machine.
I copied my backup disk (3.2 GB) onto my hard drive using 10.4 in order to reorganize my storage, but then I could not trash it.In "file browser" a lock icon appears next to the folder name, and I always get the error message that it can not be put into trash in one step, would I like to delete it? I click on "delete" and no help.Further trial led to an error message that I don't have "permission." I'm the only user.I don't know anything about terminal and not one command, and usually when I ask for help, people provide "code" but no instructions on how to enter it or where.I'm the rawest beginner at terminal,
I'm using cifs to mount windows share.I have created one credentials file and given the path in fstab to mount at boot time. Now i want to encrypt the credentials file and place that in the fstab file.But it is not accepting.. how to use encrypted file to use in fstab,so that normal users can not watch the credentials inside the file.
I have Debian 5 XFCE currently installed on my old desktop. I cant open my flash drive, it doesnt pop up on the desktop, nor is it in the file manager. I read that you can add it to the fstab list but I dont know how to do it.
