I can't finish installing Ubuntu 10.04. I have a Corsair Nova 128 GB solid state drive, the 128 GB model of this series, to be precise. I have an ASUS P5N-T Deluxe motherboard. It has a six xSATA 3 Gb/s ports NVIDIA MediaShield RAID controlelr on it. In Disk Utility, it shows up as nVidia Corporation MCP55 SATA Controller, using the sata_nv driver. I have the 128 GB drive plugged into one of these ports. I have disabled RAID completely in the BIOS.
When I boot the Live CD and run GParted, the drive shows up fine. I've got a 70.81 GiB NTFS partition (Windows 7), a 4.00 GiB swap partition, and a 44.43 GiB ext4 partition, onto which I had planned to install Ubuntu 10.04. I created the swap and ext4 partitions earlier, but at one point, that was unpartitioned space.
The problem is that when I run the Install app to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my SSD, when I get to step 4 of 8 (Prepare partitions), exactly zero drives show up. A while ago, I had a couple of Seagate 1.5 TB mirrored drives plugged into two of the ports, and they showed up fine, but no 128 GB SSD. In trying to troubleshoot this problem, I unplugged those and just left the SSD, and zero drives showed up. I disabled RAID in the BIOS, and it still doesn't show up. I moved the SSD from the port it was plugged into and plugged it into one of the ports that one of the 1.5 TB drives was plugged into. It still doesn't show up.
Nuts and bolts of it: Seagate 1.5 TB drive plugged into port: no problem. Corsair Nova 128 GB SSD plugged into port: doesn't show up. But again, only in the Install utility. In Disk Utility under SATA Host Adapter/MCP55 SATA Controller, I see 128 GB Solid-State Disk/ATA Corsair CSSD-V128GB2 listed plain as day. In GParted, I see a 119.24 GiB /dev/sda device with the partitions I've created on it plain as day. I can pull up a terminal and mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/ssd without any problem and access files on it. But for whatever reasons, the Install program and only the Install program can't see it. I'm dead in the water. Obviously, I can't use Ubuntu if I can't install it. What can I do to get this disk drive detected?
I'm thinking of getting a forensic bridge to help with fixing machines and I was wondering if the support was good for Firewire and if so do they show up in /dev like hda and sda do so I can keep using my normal set of tools.
I have roughly 5Tb of movies spread out on 6 drives in my system. I'd like to create a folder that will display the contents of certain folders without actually moving the data. For example, I have 3 drives with /HDMovies and 3 with /SDMovies. How do I create two new folders /HDMovies and /SDMovies and have the data from the drives be collected?
I have two optical drives (not SATA) that previously showed up as /dev/hda and /dev/hdb. No longer. I see no mention of them in fstab and catting all the /dev/dvd /dev/cd... /dev/sr.. turns up nothing. If I place a disk with info in the drive nothing appears anywhere I can see (not in dmesg).
K3b tells me no devices found. wodim tells me Detected CD-R drive: /dev/sr1 wodim: Cannot do inquiry for CD/DVD-Recorder. Errno: 5 (Input/output error), test unit ready scsi sendcmd: fatal error CDB: 00 00 00 00 00 00 cmd finished after 0.000s timeout 40s (These are not SATA drives.) I noticed rebooting will show drives if there is media in there. However, that disappears after a while as well. Then inserting and reinserting cdroms gives no messages in dmesg.
First my setup: Hardware Genuine AMD Athlon - 512 mg Mem - Nvida card & latest drivers - 80gb & 40gb drives - dvd read only & cdrw.
OS: Ubuntu 10.04 - tried standard desktop then the alt version now back to standard desktop.
Problem: Both optical drives recognise data disks and show them on the desktop. The dvd drive recognises any dvd and not only shows it on the desktop but also flashes up a requester box asking me which program I would like to use to play it. Nothing happens when I insert a music cd in either drive. Rhythm Box Music Player does not show a music cd available to play but does however show my iTouch when I connect it via usb. Btw iTouch is shown on the desktop when connected. What have I done: Fstab had no entries for either drive so I've researched and entered a line for each.The dvd fs is entered as iso9660,udf. The cdrw is using "proc" as a file system as it's the only thing that will show as mounted in Mtab. All else fails. Both drives show up in System/Administration/Disk Utility (irrespective of Fstab entries), therefore the system can see them. Also investigating through the Terminal shows both drives. how to listen to music cds on ubuntu 10.04. I wish to save my music then upload the same to my iTouch. It all worked so well in 8.04.
i have recently setup and installed Ubuntu 9.04 on a virtulal drive usingVMWare 6.04, installed the desktop gui as well, I need to add other drives for data and loggng, which I did in the VMWare side. I can see the 2 drives in ubuntu, but can not access them, I get he unable to mount location when I try. How can resolve this please as I need these to virtual drives to be used as data drives.
I suspect this is not new but I just can't find where it was treated. Maybe someone can give me a good lead.I just want to prevent certain users from accessing CD/DVD drives and all external drives. They should be able to mount their home directories and move around within the OS but they shouldn't be able to move data away from the PC. Any Clues?
I have a 500gig SATA drive and a 320gig IDE drive installed in an HP a6700y/9150e 1.8GHz Quad, 4 gig ram... The Fedora installer only sees the 500g SATA drive, and not the 320g IDE drive where I want to install Fedora. Now I know that I can't always get what I want, but in this case I am not willing to mess with the working Vista installation just to get Fedora installed.
Vista BTW sees the 320 just fine. I am clueless as to where to begin with this. I gave up in Fedora with my Celeron based machine because of speed issues.... But this new box should have more than enough horsepower to run F!
I have a dual boot with vista on disk 0 and ubuntu on disk1. I just installed a disk 2 that I would like to use to try out other distros. Ubuntu is the only linux experience I have had. I'm really not very good at all of this, so my questions before I start loading another distro are:
1. Does Fedora use GRUB as its installer? 2. When I installed ubuntu on disk 1 (sdb1), the install was very simple. I chose sdb1 for the install, it loaded it, and when it was done I simply had the choice of which drive to boot into. Will installing Fedora on disk 2 (sdc1) be just as simple, or will I encounter steps I must take to make it so that I have a choice of which disk/OS to boot into?
I am attempting to install F11 from full media onto Abit IP35 Pro m/b connected to two (unitilized) Seagate 300GB SATA drives (7200.9) and attempting to create a software RAID1 setup as I have in FC8. I am using the graphical setup (as I have in other releases.) However, the ONLY "drive" shown when creating a RAID partion is /dev/mapper/nvidia_jhhdfjhf with free space of 286165 MB. There is not /dev/sda0, /dev/sda1 drives that I would have expected to see.
NOTE: All BIOS options for SATA are set to "IDE", not RAID or AHCI. The Seagate Seatools software sees both SATA drives and all tests are successful. What now? It seems like this is a major step backwards from F10. It does not seem mere mortals can install with RAID1 on this motherboard.
I have Fedora 14 installed on my main internal drive. I have one Fedora 14 and one Fedora 15 installed on two separate USB drives.When I boot into any of these drives, I can't access any of the other hard drives from the other drivesll I can, but just the boot partitions.Is there any way of mounting the other partitions so I can access the information?---------- Post added at 12:42 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:34 AM ----------I guess even an explanation on why I can't view them would be good too.
I did the upgrade, over the internet, using the "preupgrade" command. All the files downloaded and I rebooted and it is all apparently working fine.When I do a uname -a command I get this response:Linux Fedora11 126.96.36.199-162.fc12.i686.PAE #1 SMP Fri Dec 4 00:43:59 EST 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux.When I open a terminal window it says username@Fedora11:~When I run "rpm -qa" it show my installed packages all end with fc12, so I am sure I am on Fedora 12.When I used to run Ubuntu, I would just open the file /etc/lsb-release and it would show me what version I was running.What file holds that information in Fedora 12 ?
I now have a triple boot on triple drives with Vista on sda, Ubuntu on sdb, and PCLinuxOS on sdc.When I installed PCLinuxOS on sdc, I installed the bootloader in the first sector of partition 1 of sdc so that I could keep using the Grub bootloader that installed with Ubuntu.Everything is working fine at the moment.I now want install Fedora 10 on sdc for experimentation. I have used gparted to create another partition on sdc to install Fedora 10, so my question is 'What and where exactly should I put in the /boot/grub/menu.lst of my original bootloader to get to Fedora?'
When installing FC 11 after a few questions about language I got:
"The Fedora disc was not found in any of your CDROM drives ...."
I read a couple of the threads on the problem and it seemed people were shooting in the dark for answers. Two issues mentioned were SCSI and DMA problems. If I go into the bios and disable the DMA or SCSI driver, and then I re-enable them after installing Fedora, will Fedora see the DMA or SCSI? Or will the fact that they were disables during installation keep Fedora from recognizing them later?
First time linux user, am trying to install a fresh full install of Fedora 12 dvd i686 version. I have two identical sata drives, which fedora fails to identify. Have reset the bios, changed settings in the bios, still not finding them. I have an asus av8-x motherboard, with a athlon dual core processer.
We are try to install Fedora 12 or Fedora 13 x86_64 on HP Server Blade ProLiant BL460c G6. And when the installer try to find storage devices - it can not find any hard drivers. We are have message on screen - "Finding storage devices" and the installation process is not continue.... Fedora 10 and Fedora 11 x86_64 are installed very well. The device /dev/cciss/c0d0 is present in system and all it partitions - c0d0p1, c0d0p2 ... Command fdisk -l /dev/cciss/c0d0 has no any output.
lsusb -v output:
0c:00.0 RAID bus controller: Hewlett-Packard Company Smart Array G6 controllers (rev 01) Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Smart Array P410i
The Fedora installer won't display my two SATA hard drives. I've tried both the x86_64 live CD and DVD. On the live CD, fdisk -l displayed nothing. However, if I click "Specialized Storage Devices" a devices shows up as "BIOS RAID set (stripe)" with a capacity equal to both my hard drives. I don't even have RAID enabled in BIOS - it is set to AHCI. Other os installers display the hard drive correctly.

I installed fedora on one of my three hard drives and it seems that something went wrong with the other two. Fedora recognizes the other drives but it seems the data on those drives is not there anymore. The below images are screen shots from my computer folder and disk utility program. I tried to look through Fedora documentation but I did not find a solution to my case.
There is a FC4 Server with A8V-MX mobo currently running 2x WD500 SATA drives in RAID1 with a third WD500 SATA drive for data backup. This machine has been running 24/7 since January 2007.The plan is to replace the WD500s with WD 2TB SATA II drives in a similar setup as above. i.e. 2 drives in RAID1 and the third drive for data backup.Definitely looking to do a clean Fedora 14 install on the 2TB but have some questions.
1. Will Fedora 14 detect the VT8251 connected SATA drives? 2. If not, how do I get drivers so it will? (I have the mobo CD with makedisk, but prob for windows)
I already have the 14 x86-64 DVD ready to go, but I am not yet at the site.the BIOS settings are: SATA, RAID or AHCI.
I created a Fedora 13 x86 live image on USB using [URL] I've set it to boot using the USB and when it does I see the 10 sec countdown (or the options if I press a key), I tried all the options to boot the image but the screen just turns black for a few seconds and then the the monitor goes into "power saving mode" and nothing happens (I waited like 10 minutes). What's going on? I am trying to install fedora into an empty (secondary) HD, in the main HD I only have a win XP, and I don't want to burn a cd/dvd that's why I am trying to boot the USB.
I know this is an Ubuntu Forum (duh) but I'm having trouble booting Fedora. I have Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04 loaded on to my HDD and GRUB boots both of them just fine. I installed Fedora 15 on dev/sda7 (a clean partition) and I'm using the same swap for both Linux distros. I am not that new to Linux but I still need fairly detailed instructions.
My problem: Fedora does not show in the boot menu and I'm not sure how to get it there.
I've heard about something going funny when the kernel updates and something about chainloading but I'm no expert on either.
My System Intel Core Duo E5300 Mobo - Gigabyte G31M-ES2L 1GB DDR2 800MHz RAM 4 x WD20EARS HDD I have been trying to install Fedora or Ubuntu for over a week. I thought it would take an hour and i would be away. I have been trying to install using the mdadm Software RAID feature. Everytime it takes about a day to format the drives and then i get an installation error. The drives state they are ready to use as is on any operating system other then WinXP, but this does not appear to be the case.
I am very new to Fedora... I have been doing some reading.[URL].. That information has been promising. I have been able to get into Fdisk off the live CD but i can't figure out how or if it is possible to do what i want it to.
Has anyone had any luck getting these drives to function correctly in a software RAID? I have had good luck with WD drives in the past and just assumed these drives would do what i wanted to but alas i have been proven wrong.
The partitions i wanted was... - A 2GB swap parition - A 10 GB RAID 1 partition for Fedora - The remaining space as a Raid 5 for files.
Am i just banging my head against a wall here, or is this possible.
I try to stay max 3 releases behind with Fedora, and now it is time to upgrade from a well behaving Fedora 8 to Fedora 11, not to slip too far behind. I have an Intel motherboard with a 82865G video chip. My display is a BenQ FP731. Fedora 8 the display works nicely giving 1280x1024 resolution at 72 Hz. On Fedora 11 the 865G chip ensists on setting the refresh rate to 75 Hz. I have copied the xorg.conf I use in Fedora 8 to /etc/x11/xorg.conf in the Fedora 11 installation. The chip sets itself to 60 Hz or 75 Hz, but not the desired 72 Hz which would give clear picture. What am I missing here?
Below a copy of my xorg.conf that gives the crystal clear and desired 1280x1024 @ 72Hz in Fedora 8 but gives a shivering and unusable 1280 x 1024 @ 75 Hz in Fedora 11:
---- clip clip ---- # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display #Section "Module" #Load "glx" #Load "dri" #EndSection #Section "Serverflags"
I had Vista installed then Ubuntu Grub showed both... then I wanted to try Fedora 13 an after install I had Fedora Bootloader but it only shows Fedora / other and other is Vista... how do I manually enter Ubuntu partition into /boot/grub.conf or should I just reinstall ubuntu grub and hopefully that will pick up vista and fedora? Lost on where to go with this.
