i am trying to compile kernel 2.6.23 on Fedora 12 After fixing a few bugs (getline error, %dil ,etc) i was able to compile the kernel made initramfs img using dracut updated grub and then booted up the new kernel 2.6.23 but it fails to boot with following error mount: unknown filesystem type 'ext4'
I installed Ubuntu Server 9.10 in a virtual machine, and I'm trying to install the VMware Tools but I can't mount the installer CD: $ sudo mount /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom mount: unknown filesystem type 'iso9660'
I recently upgrade my armel NAS from etch to squeeze. During the partitioning step of the installation I intentionally left unmounted the data partition (900GB formatted XFS) but after the installation I'm not able to mount it.
I edited the fstab file adding the last line
And tried a mount but I get the message
So i noticed throught lsmod that I don't have the module for xfs
Tried installing xfsprogs but it didn't helped. So I searched for xfs-modules but seems it doesn't exists for armel architecture. Am I right? What does it means? That XFS is not supported in armel Squeeze? Assumed I can't transfer/backup 900GB of partition, is there a way to convert it on-the-fly to a supported filesystem format?
I dont know anything about linux and just been assigned to amount a drive to it. here's what i did so far: Version of Linux using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga) [root]# mount -t auto /dev/sdb1 /tmp/archive mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'
when checking the /proc/filesystems, i noticed that 'ntfs' is not listed there, several forum suggested i try running 'modprobe ntfs'. If that is not found, you'll need a kernel with ntfs support. i'm so lost, where to i get the modprobe ntfs
Formated new drive with ext3 on external drive on Suse 11.1 When upgraded to 11.2, drive was not connected... Could not get mounted after that... Set up another boot drive, could not get to mount. Found post with following:
Error as follows: mount: unknown filesystem type 'crypto_LUKS' Have also got to another point where superblock was incorrect. I can use terminal, but am not a linux guru... Have looked at other posts under luks, but can not find a solution.
I'm trying to mount an external DVD +RW Drive so I can burn a directory from my Linux Server to disk. I think I've figured out how to mount the drive, but it only works when there's a disk with data in the drive. When I enter mount /dev/scd1 /mnt I'm able to read from the drive, no problem. When I try to do the same thing, however, with a blank disk I get the following message: "mount: you must specify a filesystem type" So I'm assuming I need to prepare the disk somehow. I've verified that the dvd+rw-tools package is installed on the RH server but I'm not sure what the next step is.
I changed the first line of /etc/fstab in an attempt to get rid of an annoying message "mount: unknown filesystem type 'static'". All I did was put a "#" on the first line .... changing the original from:
I need to examine a hard drive that came from another system running Ubunut Server (not sure what version). I know the drive has LVM on it, so as far as I understand that means the drive will be treated as EXT4 for mounting. I can't boot from the actual disk, but I have used a IDE to USB connector to make a binary copy of the drive, which I've mounted as a loopback device. However, when I try to mount the loopback device properly, I get this:
root@~je:/# mount -o ro -t ext4 /dev/loop0 /mnt mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
I tried using -t ext4dev too, but that just gives an unknown filesystem error. The file I've got mounting in /dev/loop0 is a .dd file, created by imaging the drive using dcfldd on the server drive while it was mounted (as /dev/sdb). System I'm working on is running Ubuntu 9.10. All I need is to be able to mount the server drive so I can traverse the file directories, there's a few things I need to check on it. If needed I can dispense with the whole loopback setup and just directly connect the server hard drive again using the IDE to USB cable, but I'd rather not do that; it's imperative that the drive doesn't get altered, or at least as little as possible.
The problem of such standing Fedora 12-i686, with all the latest updates, the next time (do not remember what he's updated), restarted the computer ... after as soon as he began to load line (Grub boot norms) wrote many times that the Mount: You Must specify the filesystem type from the LiveCD tried all said that there was no public Linux systems, tried a single mode w that crusty file system ... tell me how best to restore the data from the HDD ...
I just got an Acer netbook Aspire One. I put the Ubuntu remix on it successfully, and was using it for several days without problems. Now all of a sudden when I turn on my computer I get a grub error message with a command prompt. I've tried following the direction to restore grub but I'm getting stuck right away on the command to mount my ubuntu partition. After I type "sudo mount /dev/sda4 /mnt", I keep getting the error message "mount: you must specify the filesystem type."
I've just made the switch from Ubuntu to Debian Squeeze and am having trouble connecting external media (be it a USB stick or an ext HD). The error I am getting when I connect anything via usb is the following:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error.
my friend using XP and it was closed because he didnt activate it . he want to try Linux , i adviced him to use UBUNTU 10.10, but after we order the boot we got a loading screen for ubuntu then this error appeared

Ubuntu 10.04 has just failed to load from my hard drive, so I've resorted to booting from CD just to get the machine going.I'm wondering if my main boot drive has gone caput??When trying to mount it using DISK UTILITY...get the message: Error mounting volume

We received some client data on an external USB drive. We plugged it into our CentOS 5.5 machine and I ran an fdisk -l which gave me this new info: Quote: Disk /dev/sdf: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
In my system around 73gb(pc-desktop) i have,1 primary partition(windows)-25gb, 1-extended partition(remaining gb) 3 logical partitions were there in (under) extended partition in one of the logical partition is d:drive. in my hard disk d: drive is -/dev/sda5
previosly i was fat -file system , (d:drive-/dev/sda5), i remember i changed the d: drive(d:drive-/dev/sda5) file system to ext4file system ,with following command using terminal
After doing(changing the file system)this one ,i couldnt see the d:drive data
By doing that
1q) Did i reformatted the partition? i think the new filesystem(ext4) has no knowledge of the data that was on it when it had a FAT filesystem.
2q) How to do undo operation,i tried to change the filesystem type to fat/ntfs in terminal using command --sudo mkfs -t FAT /dev/sda5.
Result:its showing text message-'mkfs.FAT: No such file or directory'(not in single quote)
I have a following problem: Recently my drive with Ubuntu 9.4 has mysteriously stopped working, i.e. when I switch the computer on it informs me that GRUB didn't find the filesystem. Well, I suppose it happens.
First, I though it was due to the drive dying, but I popped it in an external enclosure and HDTune told me the drive was fine. Wanting to recover the files on the drive before reinstalling I first tried to mount it in said external enclosure under Windows (I have Win Ext2 driver installed which used to work just fine). This time, however, drive gets assigned a letter but upon opening it Windows popped up an error saying that the drive was not formatted and whether I would like to format it then.
Unfazed by this streak of failures I tried to mount it under Linux but, alas, to no avail. I might have tried every single -t operator under mount command but it still won't budge and let me mount.
When I try to start up 9.10 I can get past GRUB but not fsck. A file check will be started but no progress will be made and finally I get the 'General error mounting filesystems'.Trying in recovery mode I get this just before the fsck check

This seems to be slightly different than the other threads I've seen discussing this issue. It just all of a sudden happened, I didn't upgrade anything or have any crashes immediately prior.
