General :: CD Rom Drive - Mount: Can't Find Cdrom In /etc/fstab Or /etc/mtab

Nov 9, 2010

I tried to mount my CD Rom drive and got this response: "mount: can't find cdrom in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab"

I did see the CD Rom drive briefly after I upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 but I couldn't access the drive and when I logged back in.

Ubuntu :: Mount: Can't Find /dev/sdb1 In /etc/fstab Or /etc/mtab

I just installed pysdm so I could configure what drives mount on boot, and now when I go to access my external harddrive, this is what I get:

General :: ERROR:can't Find /mnt In /etc/fstab Or /etc/mtab

Sep 22, 2010

I've observed a problem which stops me from mounting my external hard disk into my machine. I used a bash script to perform the mounting operation; but the script faced error, Whereas the mount command works properly correct when I use it directly in command line.

#!/bin/bash
mount_point= fdisk -l | sed -n '$p' | cut -c1-9
mount $mount_point /mnt

the code should have split the mount location of external hard disk in /etc/fstab and pass the mount_point' variable to mount command, but it doesn't.

ERROR:can't find /mnt in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

Ubuntu :: Fstab & Mtab Don't Match

Jul 6, 2010

My HD contains a Windows, Fat32, two Linux & swap partitions. Recently, I had to recover my partition table with "testdisk", due to a foolish attempt to resize a partition.I recovered all partitions, with the exception of my root partition. I left that unallocated, then reformatted it with GParted, to be of a larger size.All data has been recovered & the PC works fine, just as it always has.The wierd thing is that the original "root" partition seems to co-exist on the same partition as my Fat32 data(???)GParted shows my root partition as almost full, when it should only be about half full....then my Fat32 partition shows empty, when it should be about 3GB full. Root should only be about 5GB, not almost 9GB.I believe that my mtab & fstab are corrupt relative to the partitions that GParted lists, and need to be fixed. However, I don't know where to start.?

General :: Fstab Line For Auto Mount Drive That All Users Can Read/write?

Jan 4, 2011

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?

Networking :: Fstab / Mtab Hardmount Remote Machine

Apr 21, 2011

I am trying to get a mount in my root directory to a folder on a remote machine so that a log in is not required to access it. I seem to be having some problems with permissions though.

So far I have:
- added the machine to my /etc/hosts file
- added remotemachine:/data /auto nfs ro,soft 0 0 to my /etc/fstab
- added remotemachine:/data /auto nfs rw,soft,addr=10.112.33.4 0 0 to my /etc/mtab file
- added /hostmachinefolder mymachineip(rw) to the host /etc/exports file

However when I mount -a on my machine I get:
mount: remotemachine:/folder failed, reason given by server: Permission denied

Ubuntu Servers :: Mount A USB Drive In Rc.local With /sbin/mount And UUID Instead Of Fstab?

Feb 6, 2010

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:

Code:

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:

Code:

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.

Ubuntu :: Can't Mount Cdrom Or Usb After Replacing Optical Drive

Mar 24, 2010

My cdrom was sort of working, but the tray was physically damaged. The usb was working without a problem.

After replacing the the cdrom drive with a similar model known to work well I could not get it to mount. I then tried to move important files to usb to try a fresh install. The usb stick flickered when I put it in, but it didn't mount. Same behaviour as the cdrom, the light goes on when I turn on the computer, but once I'm logged in I can't access the cdrom.

I have tried multiple variations of playing with fstab and trying to mount things in terminal to no avail. I just can't get Ubuntu to recognize the usb or cdrom even though their lights go on when I first try to use them.

Ubuntu :: Fstab - Trying To Mount Hard Drive ?

Aug 18, 2010

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

General :: Setup Fstab To Automatically Mount NTFS Partitions - GUI To Set The Mount Permissions?

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.

1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?

2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?

Fedora :: Fstab Ext3 F11 - Automatically Mount The Drive In File Tree At The Location /mnt/TheDrive?

May 15, 2010

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.

General :: Cannot Mount CDROM When Booting From Live CD HP DV6?

Dec 3, 2010

I'm trying to get back into Linux after a few years off.

I have tried booting from a Live CD using Flash Linux and Damn Small Linux.

Flash Linux reports unable to mount CDROM and then provides a command line - I assume I have the kernel, a shell and little else at this point? Can I mount the CD and continue?

DSL seems to do something similar but freezes with a blank screen. I have the option of entering parameters prior to booting with DSL (but not with Flash) I have tried the parameter which copies the CD to RAM and then boots without success.

I plan on installing Debian to my HD in the near future but felt like playing around with Live CDs prior to this in order to get reacquainted.

I have googled this issue and it seems there are other noobs out there with the same model of PC (HP DV6) who are having similar problems but I could not find a solution.

As an aside - this is the kind of issue that IMO, still prevents Linux from becoming a mainstream OS.

Ubuntu :: /etc/mtab And /proc/mounts Do Not Show Tune2fs Mount Option

May 23, 2011

I just discovered that you can automount an ext4 filesystem with acl enabled by running "tune2fs -o acl". (I knew about tune2fs but did not dare to use it until now). However, the acl mount option does not show up in /etc/mtab and /proc/mounts. Can I ignore this, or is there a way of telling the system about the actual mount options?

Edit: I can do "tune2fs -l <device> | grep acl | awk '{print $4}'" and if that isn't empty I can update /etc/mtab with "mount -f -o remount,acl <device>", but like the udev rule I previously messed with this seems lumberingly unelegant to me.

General :: XFS Won't Mount With Fstab Options In Fedora 12

I used the usual 'mkfs.xfs -l size=128m,lazy-count=1 /dev/sdX' at creation. After that, I would like to use custom mount options like: This goes instead of the "defaults" part in /etc/fstab

noatime,nobarrier,logbsize=256k,logbufs=8,biosize=16

I receive the following error at boot: INVALID log iosize 4 [not 12-30] << No one used iosize 4... what does it mean? it is connected to the options..but which one? (At the minute I'm usig it with: noatime,nobarrier).

General :: Mount And Umount As User Without Fstab?

Jul 19, 2011

I am writing this software that creates virtual block device nodes almost like loop does. I need to allow non-superusers to mount and umount filesystems from these devices. I don't know the names of the block device nodes beforehand so i can't use fstab entries to add "user" or "owner" flags there.

Currently i solve this by providing a small suid helper tool that verifies that this is indeed "my" block device the user is trying to mount and then just call /sbin/mount or /sbin/umount to do the job. This is definitely better than setting a suid bit for the whole program but not really perfect.

General :: RAID Impossible To Mount Through Fstab

Nov 3, 2010

After having solved my raid5 creation problems, I'm running into a new one: the RAID is just impossible to mount through fstab. I get a wonderful "The disk drive for /dev/md0 is not ready yet or not present.
Continue to wait or press S to skip mounting or M for mount recovery."

Once the system has booted, I can perfectly run a mount /dev/md0 /media/raid and mount it manually.
I've already tried mdadm.conf with UUIDs, with device names, tried several options in fstab, xfs and ext4 filesystems, nothing to do, it won't mount.

All this is running under Ubuntu 10.04 server, kernel: 2.6.32-25 server, mdadm 3.1.4 (from a Debian sid)

Here's my mdadm.conf:

General :: Sheevaplug - USB Will Not Mount At Boot As Per Fstab

Feb 11, 2010

I've just started playing around with a Sheevaplug running a very light version of Ubuntu. I'm planning to run it with an SD card to store all my server data and a USB stick to regularly back up some of it.My problem is that the 2 partitions on my SD card mount fine at boot, but my USB stick's single partition does not. Could it be that the mounts specified in fstab are done before my USB device has finished getting alive? Mounting the USB stick manually works perfectly well.

fstab
Code:
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
/dev/sda1 /media/usb1 ext2 defaults 0 0
/dev/mmcblk0p1 /media/sd1 ext2 defaults 0 0
/dev/mmcblk0p2 /media/sd2 ext2 defaults 0 0
dmesg after boot

Code:
ehci_hcd: USB 2.0 'Enhanced' Host Controller (EHCI) Driver
orion-ehci orion-ehci.0: Marvell Orion EHCI
orion-ehci orion-ehci.0: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
orion-ehci orion-ehci.0: irq 19, io mem 0xf1050000
orion-ehci orion-ehci.0: USB 2.0 started, EHCI 1.00
usb usb1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
hub 1-0:1.0: USB hub found
hub 1-0:1.0: 1 port detected
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver.....

In the dmesg
Code:
usb-storage: device scan complete
comes after

Code:
EXT2-fs warning: mounting unchecked fs, running e2fsck is recommended
EXT2-fs warning: mounting unchecked fs, running e2fsck is recommended
which makes me think the USB stick has missed the fstab train the 2 SD card partitions are on. And changing the order of the entries in fstab does not make any difference either.

I'm not planning to reboot my Sheevaplug every 5 minutes, but I like things to be nice and clean.

General :: Fstab And My Vista Partition - Can't Mount At All

I can't remember if things with mounting vista/ntfs partitions has changed, but I cannot seem to get my partition mounted as a read-write partition.

And it made it read-only..

So i tried this:

And it wouldn't mount it.

Quote:

Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Operation not supported Mount is denied because NTFS is marked to be in use. Choose one action:

Choice 1: If you have Windows then disconnect the external devices by clicking on the 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon in the Windows taskbar then shutdown Windows cleanly.

Choice 2: If you don't have Windows then you can use the 'force' option for your own responsibility. For example type on the command line:

General :: Can't Get Mount To Work In /etc/init.d/rc.local Or Fstab

Jul 10, 2010

I'm running XBMC media center which is built on Ubuntu and I'm trying to mount a network share, but I can't seem to automate it. If I manually run:

Code:

mount -t cifs -o file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 //192.168.1.20/disk7/xbmc_thumbs/Thumbnails /home/kevin/.xbmc/userdata/Thumbnails

The mount is created and everything works fine. But obviously the mount eill be lost on the next boot. A few months back, when I was running a previous version of XBMC and first instructed on how to do this, I was told to put that command in /etc/init.d/rc.local so the mount would automatically be created at boot. I did and it worked. The other day I upgraded to a new XBMC build (which is built on the newer Lucid Ubuntu) and while the same command creates the mount, putting it in /etc/init.d/rc.local does not create it on boot. Someone suggested the fstab was the better place to create the mount. So I inserted the following in /etc/fstab:

Code:

//192.168.1.20/disk7/XBMC_thumbs/Thumbnails /home/kevin/.xbmc/userdata/Thumbnails cifs file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

That doesn't work either. What am I doing wrong and how can I get this mount auto-created on boot?

General :: Mount Remote Samba Share In Fstab?

Client: Ubuntu Desktop 8.04
/currently firewalled to only allow server ip

Same userid and groups set up on on both. I have taken two linux courses and can maneuver around fairly well, but am still pretty newbie at all this. We have loaded Samba on a server and created a Samba share. I AM able to access that share via Windows Vista, but have not been able to successfully mount the share on the Ubuntu desktop via the fstab file. I have tried the following ways: serverip:/path/shareddirectory /net ext3 user,sync 0 0 and the samba way..

//serverip/sharename /net smbfs username=x,password=x

After modifying fstab, I reboot. No luck since that either way.Only ONCE after modifying it samba way, I was prompted to enter credentials, but after login I was unable to view the files on the server. From this point on either way, if I run commmand 'mount -a' the response is "Special device serverip:/path/sharedirectory does not exist" Also! I am able to ping client-to-server, but not server-to-client.

General :: Windows - Cdrom Drive Doesn't Work On Laptop?

Dec 21, 2010

I bought a new CDROM drive, as recommended by HP. It still doesn't work. I can open and close it now; so that's changed. But it still doesn't appear as a drive, and I can't use it.

Here's as best as I can describe it:

When starting up, the boot order doesn't recognize the cdrom drive, but I can open and close the drive during this time.

In Windows 7, I can't open the cdrom drive, and it doesn't recognize it in device manager, disk management, or my computer.

In Ubuntu Linux, I can open the cdrom drive, but it still doesn't recognize the cds, and it won't mount.

If I reformat everything, would my cdrom drive work again? Can I reinstall Windows without a cdrom drive? I've deleted the upper and lower filters as was suggested in Google searches. Took the disk drive out and checked that it was installed correctly (no reason it shouldn't have been). Still: nothing works.
