I would like to back up my flash drive in case it gets lost or damaged.the flash drive is bootable with ext2 and a fat partition.the drive is on /dev/sdb1.I think the dd command would back everything up and when restored to a different flash drive everything would boot fine and be as before.I was wondering wow should I use this command to backup and restore or if there is a better option.
I stupidly unplugget my USB-cable, which was connected to my Nokia music phone, just as if I were in Windows. What do I do? I've lost my music on the phone, or, it seems it may be there (the correct mass of data), but my phone now tells me there is no music... Can I recover this? And - what is the correct way to unplug a USB unit in Ubuntu? To make it work, and find the phone/drive - I just typed "sudo lsusb" in the terminal, and it found and opened the memory automatically... How should you unmount the USB, and maybe even how do I get my data back?
I'm within Firefox and start playing ..... movies Firefox crashes. Thats not the worst of it however; the process locks up the whole system and I have to reboot. I attempt the kill it with now luck. Killing the PPID doesn't help because it got to 1. I even looked a pstree to kill parent processes without any luck. I'm like WTF. Firefox crushes with the "ZL" in the line when running the ps command also. I'm going to uninstall Adobe flash and reinstall it to see if that helps at all. This is the only time I have every had this type of issue.
I made a persistent install of Ubuntu on a flash drive. I made changes to that installation. The software (Unetboontin) sets this all up. I think it partitions it for you. How do I image that flash drive to another flash drive?
I'm a Linux college course student and can't et help from my "instructor". As part of my class, I've installed Fedora 12 on a secondary hard drive. I don't know the first thing about Linux and am totally lost trying to get back to my other hard drive to access the Windows XP OS. All my stuff for the courses I'm taking this summer are stored THERE. Can anyone help me with very simple, easy to follow instructions for how to get back to Windows AND also have access to Linus on the secondary drive?
I downloaded the iso file from fedora's official site and copied the iso to my pendrive... to be able to install Fedora through pen drive i downloaded Universal-USB-Installer-18.104.22.168 and used it locate the iso file in my pen drive... after Universal-USB-Installer-22.214.171.124 did its job, i booted my pc and proceeded to the installation.. there was a 'install on hard disk option' and chose it... it asked me for a new password, my location etc. but when i chose the install option it prompted me an error saying that i dun have enough space to install fedora... how do i locate my drive during installation , so that i cud install it on my desired drive... it shows me two options, one is the pendrive while the other is "AMD something.... "(dun remember the exact name") whenever i select on the AMd.
Im taking the class now in college once a week. My professor said that we need to install any Linux operating systems so I chose Fedora, but he said we need at least 16GB free of space to install it in our computer, sadly i only have 1GB space left remaining. I told him about it and he told me about installing Fedora in my flash drive that has space of 16GB. I really am interested in this course and want to understand all of this stuff so can anyone tell me the process to install Fedora into flash drive so I can boot it anywhere else other than home? Also since he said I need 16GB to install it don't I got to buy 32GB flash drive at least?
I'm interested in trying out Fedora but would use it on my current Netbook (an ASUS eeePC 1000HE). I currently have Mandriva on it though which I don't want to stop using.Can I install it on a Flash Drive? If so, would it be in a sense a LiveDVD type of installation or could I actually do an install on the Flash Drive to use it as a Hard Drive? If so, what would the minimum flash drive size be?
Also, if I use the Flash Drive as a hard drive would it still have to use the internal hard drive or can all 3 partitions (swap, root, and home), be on the flash drive? Would it be possible to run it on more than one machine since I also have an Acer Aspire One?
After searching the boards, I dug through the udev man pages and rule files looking for a way to modify the default automount options for USB flash drives. Apparently, the options are somewhere else. Is there a simple way to add noatime to the default mount options?
Currently, the flash drive is automounted as follows:
I'm using Fedora 12, beta RC 2 in case that makes a difference.
I downloaded the 32 bit Fedora 14 and burned the image to DVD. I didn't want to try to install it on the HDD because the last time I tried to install a distro that used Grub and not Grub2, the only OS I could get into from the boot screen was that OS that I installed with Grub.
I went ahead with the install in hopes that it would see my 4G flash drive, sdc was present so that is where I installed it. I mounted / in sdc1 and the bootloader in sdc. Everything seemed to install, install finished and said I could reboot. On reboot it tried to boot from the USB but just sat there, it never did boot.
I have a load of Maxell 2GB flash drives which I bought new.
It has a Public Partition and a Secure partition on the flash drive.
gparted and disk utility see it as 2 volumes. I need remove the 2MB secure partition to make the 2GB stick bootable. However since it's showing up as 2 volumes I can't see how to do it. Probably requires totally wiping the flash drive.
My Fedora does not auto detect a flash drive if I get to attach it with the OS already running. I still have to make a reboot and attached the drive right from the start in order for it to be detected/mounted.
Unlike In Mint 7, Ubuntu and XP, it automatically detects the flash drive as soon as it is attached.
make my Fedora detect the flash drive so that I would not have to reboot everytime I would use it.
FWIW here are some outputs: Code: # /etc/fstab # Created by anaconda on Thu Feb 4 06:06:47 2010 # # Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk'
Here is a way to prepare a USB flash drive to save your kickstart file to it, and then read the kickstart file from the USB drive during a new Fedora installation.A USB flash drive is recognised by the Linux kernel as just another hard drive.This is how I set up my USB flash drive to use it to store my kickstart file on.You will need a working Linux system to set up the USB drive.
I bought a usb drive flash drive (pendrive) Kingston 8GB: And i have a problem: In windows XP, the drive is recognized but when i click appears a message: "Insert a disk in drive X: " So, when i plug the same drive in fedora 12, nothing happen.
still would like to see some actual LAB DATA - but the info here is satisfactory as a "general rule of thumb". I was wondering if I put files on a USB flash drive & left it sit on the shelf, how long it would be before those files would start to deteriorate? - This would have nothing to do with the read/write cycle as in the "shelf time" it wouldn't be used.
I had to unmount a flash drive in GParted to format it, now I want to mount it again so I can use it, GParted does not get me a "mount" option and it does not automatically mount. How do I mount it so I can use it to make a Fedora Live USB? I am using Fedora 14 KDE BTW...
Code: HP Mini 210 Fedora 15 - latest updates I bought a HP USB Flash Drive v117r 16GB
I bought this 3 months ago and everything worked fine. However, I went to plug it into my computer and nothing came up in the file manager, the Flash drive was not detected.
I have PC running Fedora 15 and I have a iMac. The Flash drive didn't work for any of these. However, I have other Flash drives that I have had for many years and they still work. I have also tried different usb ports.
Once thing that is positive in my /var/log/messages I get the following:

I have an Intel Core2 Duo system that I want to upgrade from Fedora 12 to Fedora 14. I have downloaded the DVD iso for Fedora 14, however, I do not want to burn a DVD for installation, and would like to be able to perform the upgrade from a USB flash drive. Where can I find information that will explain how to make a bootable flash drive that can install Fedora 14?
I have a second hard drive in my desktop and both the main dirve and second drive are 250GB. I use the second drive for backups, both manual and using back in time. The other day I noticed that the second drive was formated in FAT32. If I go to disk utility and look at the drive it says:Usage:FilesystemPartition Type:Linux (0x83)Type:FAT(32-bit version)Is this ok? I thought in Linux it should be Ext4. So far its been working fine for a while now but if I need to move my files and re format it to ext4 and move them back I would rather do it now when there is less data on the drive.
I've a flash drive that it's partitions formatted as fat32, ex4 and encrypted ext4. It works fine on the system that I've formatted it on, but when I try to use it on my other Linux distributions I get these problems:
* ext4 partition accessible by root only. * after entering my pass-phrase I get
Code: /dev/mapper/udisks-luks-uuid-***** uid1000 is mounted What I'm asking for is a way to create the ext4 file system without being attached to some UID and to be accessible by any user.
I am relatively new to Fedora 15, but used 13 for a while with no issues. Yesterday a windows user put a flash drive into my computer for me to copy something on to. (This may be conincidental.) I then put the computer into suspend or hibernate or whatever and now it won't start up. At all. And I'm stuck as 'everything' I need is on that computer.
Back in Febuary, my wife bought a Toshiba Satilite from Wal-Mart and a few days ago the hard drive got toasted. So now I'm using an 8gig usb drive as the boot drive. I also have 2 other flash drives for downloads and such but overall I am very pleased.
I'm running 11.04 32 bit and was wandering if 64 bit made a difference. I've got 4 gigs of ddr3. It's slow to boot, but once it's running, it's faster then Windows 7. Very nice.
Is there anything I should chage, use, since I'm running it off a flash drive??
I have 3 seperat drives, 2 x 16 gigs and an 8 gig, and was wandering which one would be best for booting off of? What do I look for??
Here's what I got:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS880 Host Bridge 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Toshiba America Info Systems Device 9602 00:06.0 PCI bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS780 PCI to PCI bridge (PCIE port 2)
I bought an 8GB flash drive because my D drive doesn't read DVDs. Anyway, my goal is to install Linux ubuntu and have it be my OS (replacing Windows XP). Last night I went to the Ubuntu homepage and downloaded the Ubuntu desktop edition 32-bit and put it on my flash drive. I followed the instructions on how to open and run it, but I was never asked about whether I want Linux to run side by side with Windows or if I want it to replace Windows. It downloaded the whole program, my computer restarted and then (on a black screen) it asked if I wanted to use Windows XP Home Edition or Linux Ubuntu. It's really frustrating because it took a while to download and install it in the first place AND to top that off, when I tried to use Ubuntu it went to a black screen and at the top said that there was an error. So I uninstalled all the ubuntu program and software and now I have a clean slate and want to try this again. I am a complete n00b. Could someone please walk me through how I can go about downloading (w/ links plz), installing and making ubuntu my ONLY OS on my computer via a flash drive? I'm desperate and I don't want to go through all of that and make the same mistake again!
