Fedora :: Mounting External Drives Using Lshw Info?

Sep 7, 2009

After a bit of searching, I haven't found a discussion on how to mount an external device using hardware attributes, though I am almost certain I have seen discussions on this in the past. The objective is to consistently mount an external USB drive at the same mount point regardless of the order in which a user attaches other external USB drives. For instance, if I run lshw, I can find harware properties of the device:

Code:

*-usb:1
description: Mass storage device
...
physical id: 6

[code]...

I'd like to identify this device by the serial number and mount to a pre-defined mount point (e.g. /mnt/extUSB). I can write a script involving lshw,dmesg, and mount but I vaguely recall a more clean/ preferred method.

Fedora :: Prevent Mounting Of External Drives & CD / DVD Drives

Oct 18, 2010

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?

Debian :: Mounting External Drives - Unexpected Inconsistency

Jan 28, 2010

This question is an extension of previous posts in relation to my removable drives. I have an external usb/ide drives and cowon iAduio7 music player. The former is always connected and latter occasionally. The first drive to be recognized gets allocated /dev/sdc1 and /dev/hdd respectively. Until ten days ago I would simply mount them manually after each boot. Recently I added them to my fstab file. It's fine only for this error message on boot.

Code:
/dev/sdc1 unexpected inconsistency.
fsck died with exit status 4
failed (code 4)
Control-D to continue

I found the following on the net
Code:
If a device is not being mounted during boot, it may be b/c the driver for that device has not been loaded yet at the time that /etc/fstab is read (and thus the device is not active yet and doesn't get mounted). If you want to make sure it gets mounted during boot, you may need to take a look at the boot sequence for your distro and make changes as needed. Another thing you could try is adding a "mount" command of your own to one of your boot scripts. Most distros provide a file with a name like "rc.local" which gets executed late in the boot process and can be used to add your own custom commands to execute during boot. Firstly I want to know which script do you edit and does that mean I have to re-edit the fstab after creating the script.?

Here is my fstab:
Code:
[sudo] password for siawacsh:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/sdd /home/siawacsh/cowon vfat defaults
/dev/sdc1 /home/siawacsh/myhome ext3 defaults 0 3
/dev/sdb2 / ext3 errors=remount-ro 0 1
/dev/sdb1 none swap sw 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
siawacsh@debian:~$
Remember sdc1 is the external drive, and sdd the music player.

I have attached the removable drives to directories mhyome and cowon.

Fedora :: Auto Mounting Hard Drives?

Aug 10, 2009

I have a fresh installation of Fedora 11 and I am having a hard time figuring out how to automount my storage drives. Each time I login, I try to access my various storage drives and gnome makes me authenticate asroot before mounting it. FSTAB lists only logical volumes but not my storage drives. What can I do to make sure these automount when I login?

Fedora :: USB Drives No Longer Auto Mounting?

Sep 16, 2010

I know this problem was mentioned here before but because I could not find a straight forward solution anywhere I am reposting this here. So here goes.As of today, my Fedora 13 64-bit has ceased to auto-mount USB drives completely. I have made absolutely no changes to the system and I am completely baffled and frustrated by this sudden development. I desperately need this system to function properly as I use it for school and this really put a wrench in my works, especially since I have done nothing to cause this. I assume that one of the many recent updates that have been released must have done this, but I have absolutely no idea how to fix this. Why do Fedora developers release updates that cripple a perfectly functioning system is beyond me and crap like this really makes me consider switching back to Ubuntu.

Server :: 2 Separate External Hard Drives With ESata To Minimize An Electrical Failure To The Drives?

Mar 26, 2011

I am building a home server that will host a multitude of files; from mp3s to ebooks to FEA software and files. I don't know if RAID is the right thing for me. This server will have all the files that I have accumulated over the years and if the drive fails than I will be S.O.L. I have seen discussions where someone has RAID 1 setup but they don't have their drives internally (to the case), they bought 2 separate external hard drives with eSata to minimize an electrical failure to the drives. (I guess this is a good idea)I have also read about having one drive then using a second to rsync data every week. I planned on purchasing 2 enterprise hard drives of 500 MB to 1 GB but I don't have any experience with how I should handle my data

Fedora :: Get The UUID For Some Of External Hard Drives?

Apr 7, 2011

I am trying to figure out how to get the UUID for some of my external hard drives.the internet revealed a couple of promising leads, this is what I have tried so far:

ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid -> didn't list the hard discs
blkid -> didn't list the hard discs
lsusb -v -> listed the hard disc but no uuid

A normally formatted usb key is listed with uuid. The external hard discs are fully encrypted by truecrypt(realcrypt). I have been reading not so great things about that itself, but for now I don't have a promising alternative that I can use with windows as well.Any google searches don't seem to cast any new light on this for me,I'd be open to suggestions if there's a better way to get a definite ID for a hard drive... I just need to be able to mount it with realcrypt

Hardware :: Mounting Hard Drives

Mar 21, 2009

I know this is an easy task, especially using cPanel. However I want to do this without formatting the drive, since there is sensitive data already on the hard drives. So how would I mount a hard drive, but not format/lose any of the data already on it?I've looked and everything seems to lead me to believe that I'll lose data if I do it that way.

OpenSUSE :: Mounting Hard Drives As User?

Aug 4, 2010

OpenSuse 11.2 64bit When I select a hard drive in Dolphin file manager it asks for the root password. I would like to gain easier access to the drives. The Yast Partition Manager lists all of the drives and has a dialog box to change this i.e. user can mount the drive. Can we change this feature on the run, while the system is running ? The Fstab file is not listing all of the drives, so I cannot just edit the config here.

Ubuntu :: Mounting Ext4 Drives/partitions In 6.06?

Apr 5, 2010

I just recently found an iso for 6.06 and installed it on an old pc of mine that already had 8.04 and crunchbang on it. crunchbang is on an ext4 formatted partition.

When I setup 6.06, it asked me what i wanted to mount my drives as, so i told it to mount the ext4 system as hda1.

whenever 6.06 boots, it tries to mount hda1 but can't because it doesn't recognize ext4.

What I am asking is this: is there a deb or a package out there I can install to make 6.06 recognize ext4? if not, how can i make it so that 6.06 does not want to mount hda1?

I can get past the initial error message and into the desktop, so 6.06 does work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mounting Ext3 Drives In 10.10?

It seems to be (we have experienced) that 10.10 can't handle having an older ext3 drive mounted to a folder on the 1010 ext4 drive. The files get "corrupted", but afterwards, putting the drive back into the original older 9.04 system, the files are perfectly fine again.

I have explicitly disabled this function in (KDE) System Settings --> Advanced --> Removable devices. It doesn't matter - as soon as a USB device is plugged in the system mounts it as root.

Hardware :: Mounting Hard Drives With Partitions

Dec 27, 2009

I've been struggling with this one for a while - I have three SATA hard drives installed on my system:
/dev/sda - an 80 GB disk with three partitions, one NTFS for WinXP, one ext4 for Fedora 11 x86_64, and a boot partition
/dev/sdb - a 250 GB disk with one partition, ext4
/dev/sdc - a 250 GB disk with one partition, ntfs

I can mount any partition on /dev/sda without problems - everything works exactly as expected. Attempting to mount a partition from one of the other disks results in something like the following (this is for sdc1):

Code:
[User@machine ~]$ sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdc1 /mnt/shared
[sudo] password for User:

Ubuntu :: Mounting Windows Drives With Different Filenames When Boot

i reboot, windows drives are mounted with different filenames (eg:first time d: was /media/disk and e: was /media/disk-1 but after reboot they got interchanged - e: was mounted in /media/disk). I cannot afford this as several apps use files from these drives and their path keeps changing after every fresh boot.
