General :: Chmod (Directory On Drive) Fails Without Error

Aug 2, 2010

I have an external USB hard drive (sdb1) mounted at /media/Iomega HDD. When I try to do a chmod to a directory on this drive, chmod doesn't give me an error, but it doesn't change the privs - even when I'm root. Why is this?

Code:
root@d-desktop:/media/Iomega HDD# ls -lart
total 2176732
drwx------ 1 dan dan 456 2010-08-01 16:24 Unison
root@d-desktop:/media/Iomega HDD# chmod -v a+rwx Unison
mode of 'Unison' changed to 0777 (rwxrwxrwx)
root@d-desktop:/media/Iomega HDD# ls -larth
total 2.1G
drwx------ 1 dan dan 456 2010-08-01 16:24 Unison
root@d-desktop:/media/Iomega HDD# /usr/lib/klibc/bin/fstype /dev/sdb1

Hardware :: Hard Drive Replacement - When Disconnect 4GB Drive System Fails To Boot Up And Complains - Error 21

Mar 20, 2010

I have minor problem with upgrading a hard drive. I am running an old pentium lll with two hard drives. On the first hard drive I have two partitions of around 90GB each. On the first partition is installed winXP and on the second partition I have Suse 10.3, both booted by grub and living happily side by side. My second hard drive (which is formatted for windows is only 4GB.

My problem arises when I try to replace the 4GB with a 80Gb hard drive. When I disconnect the 4GB drive the system fails to boot up and complains with error 21.

Ubuntu :: Using /etc/crontab To Force Chown And Chmod In Specific Directory?

Feb 9, 2011

I need to actively make sure some files, in a specific directory, are chmod 750 and owned by transmission:media-daemons. Other users will save to this directory, with other permissions and UID/GID but I must make sureto reinforce this default.

So I have this on my /etc/crontab:

Code:

# /etc/crontab: system-wide crontab
# Unlike any other crontab you don't have to run the `crontab'
# command to install the new version when you edit this file
# and files in /etc/cron.d. These files also have username fields,
# that none of the other crontabs do.

OpenSUSE :: Added Second Hard Drive Now Can't Chown Or Chmod

Mar 29, 2010

I occasionally get into areas in Linux where I get my own ignorance demonstrated....System is a core quad running OpenSuse 11.2 64 bit on a LAN at home. I added a 750 GB SATA drive with the idea of putting all media on the drive i.e.music primarily plus a few movies and making the data sharable by anyone across the LAN i.e. the computer in the living room with an audio line to the stereo. My room mate is strictly a Windoze user so I figured if she wanted stuff on her machine as well then format the new drive with NTFS which I did using GPartd. I then set the drive to mount as /storage under root.

I loaded the music library &c and although I can play music from my user account on this machine I can not add music or videos or anything else except as root. I dont want to have to change to /root to do this. I attempted a chmod tonight as su from a terminal then in the root GUI using dolphin and resetting the permissions under properties and nothing changes. The drive appears in the filesystem as /storage with ownership as root. The permissions are

drwxr-xr-x 1 root users 4096 2010-03-27 22:55 storage

trying to chmod as root has no effect at all. I would like to be able to add content from any machine on the LAN plus be able to play a movie or video as well as music (I assume this would need the execute permission) but chmod -R 777 storage has no effect. Neither does cd'ing to the directory and trying to change ownership or permissions on the individual files or directories on the drive.Command line as su or as root from that gui, no difference. I do a

chmod g+w,o+rw storage

and the command appears to execute.However I ls -l and find the permissions unchanged. I obviously have or am doing something wrong, possibly in the way I set the drive up in the first place.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Use Chmod Inside An External Drive

Jan 8, 2011

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 (x64) and I have noticed that I cannot change the permissions of any of the files on my external drives. If I do it from the Properties of the file by manually changing a field on permissions, it changes back automatically before my eyes. If I change it with chmod, nothing happens. They are all in "-rw-/drwx/-rwx------" mode. What should I do?

General :: Mkdir Fails - Even With -p - No Such File Or Directory

May 30, 2010

The setup ( although dont trust anything I say ):

I'm working on an embedded system device using a NFS mounted rootfs ( as shared by my host ) , but I store large video content directly on the device's hdd in /data.

Device's hdd partition /dev/sda3 is ext3 fs mounted at /tmp/mnt/diska3 (rw), then I have a script create dirs like /tmp/mnt/diska3/data and /tmp/mnt/diska3/data/incoming, then symlink :

ln -s /tmp/mnt/diska3/data /data so that the /data appears like any other directory.

I can see /tmp/mnt/diska3/data/incoming. I did chmod -R a+w tmp to rule out permissions.

Running a subsequent script calls mkdir: mkdir -p /data/incoming/gui

BUT fails: mkdir: cannot create directory '/data/': No such file or directory

General :: Use Mkdir Command To Create 'local' Directory In /usr - There Are Error - Cannot Make Directory

I am a student studying computer science course.

Well, I am facing problem when doing lab questions.

I must use DLXLinux bundled in Bochs (bochs.sourceforge.net).

I am required to use the /usr/local directory.

In /usr directory, there is no directory named 'local' but there is one thing called 'local@'. So, when I try to use mkdir command to create 'local' directory in /usr , there are error "cannot make directory.....".

General :: Modify The /etc/host File - Change Directory Fails?

I login to my server as root and get the following command line header

I entered cd thinking this is what I need to change directory but fails. What is the command I need to enter in order to get to the /etc/host file so I can change it? How do I confirm an /etc/host file even exists?

General :: Puppy On Hard Drive Fails To Boot After Power Cut

Apr 19, 2011

I'm very new to Linux and recently setup a desktop PC with Puppy 5.2.5. only. I chose to have a permanent install on the hard drive and loaded additional PETS and utilities as I thought needed for my use. Last night after immediately booting up the PC I had a power cut lasting a few minutes. When power returned and I repowered the PC, I found during Puppy's boot sequence it reported an error and remained in what appeared to be a console mode - did not carry through and load my desktop. So I inserted the Puppy CD and booted from that but I'm afraid I'm not familiar enough with Linux to understand how I can get back my original desktop setup and run once again from my hard drive without having to go back to scratch.

General :: GRUB-2 Bootloader Fails To Load For Lack Of Floppy Drive?

Jul 21, 2010

2010.07.21 while trying to install Ubuntu 10.4 I've been trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell workstation and am unable to get the Grub-2 bootloader to load properly. It seems to be failing for lack of a floppy drive on the system resulting in an error message that reads : error: fd0 cannot get C/H/S values.

I've gone through the Grub-2 page at [URL].. to no avail and other sources having similar problems have likewise turned up no solutions. here's the background: A while back I was trying to install a different version of Linux and had the same problems, then had to set the project aside for a bit. I don't think this has anything to do with Linux or Ubuntu per se, but rather Grub.

The system is an old (4-5 years) Dell workstation that has one drive (128 GB) set up for Windows XP and a second new drive (500GB) which I installed for Linux. There is a DVD/CD drive and the system contains no floppy drive at all. In one attempt to get this working I tried modifying the BIOS to indicate there was a floppy drive - this created a failure earlier in the chain with the BIOS failing to load properly, not unexpected, just a shot in the dark at that point.

At the moment I am considering just running out to buy and install a cheap floppy drive to see if that helps. I'll never use the thing though so I'd rather find a solution that doesn't require me to spend money on useless hardware. In any case, here's the /boot/grub/grub.cfg contents:

# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
#
# It is automatically generated by /usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig using templates
# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub
#
### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/00_header ###

General :: Write To SD Card Fails - No Error

Feb 17, 2010

I am using Sandisk 2GB micro SD card on ARM processor EP9307A. The card is detected, mounted.
I can read data from the SD card. But cannot write to it. There is no error when I attempt to write to the Card. It appears as if its working fine. But after umount and re-mount, the data written is gone.

Here is the log when the SD card is detected:
# insmod drv
card size = 1977614336, sector size = 31, wp_grp_size = 127, wp_grp_enable = y
S:00001000 M:fffff000

What is the significance of Write Group Protect Enable (wp_grp_enable=y). Is it the case that the SD card is write protected.

Using CMD9 : SEND_CSD , I can read the Card Specific Data (CSD).
I have tried CMD27 : PROGRAM_CSD , to CLEAR wr_grp_enable : No effect seen.
I have tried CMD29 : CLEAR_WRITE_PROT ,: No effect seen.

Where is the issue,
1. I could not send commands properly.
2. Card cannot be set free from WRITE_PROTECT.
3. Something else.

General :: Dd Copy - Hard Drive Clone Fails When Mounting Root Androotblock - /newroot Failed

Oct 27, 2010

I am trying to replace an old, smaller, and dying laptop hard drive with a newer one, using a USB external drive. I first tried cloning disk to disk with Clonezilla, but it failed after cloning my root, swap, and /home directories it froze when it tried to reinstall grub. After 2x trying, I switched to dd, which I have never really used (I am fairly new to Linux in general). The actual command I used was:

Quote:

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=4096 conv=notrunc,noerror

All seemed ok and after approximately 2 hours my 80GB drive had been cloned onto my new 250GB, with dd giving what appeared to be a satisfactory closure summary. I tried to mount and access the drive from my external USB enclosure but could not view it, though the data is there, I believe, as the size and bytes show... The error that Dolphin is giving me is:

Quote:

error - wrong fstype, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1 Missing codepage or helper program or other error. When I installed the new drive directly into my laptop, it begins to boot (Sabayon 5.4, 2.6.35 kernel) but almost immediately I get (handwritten down, but this is close):

Quote:

detected real_root
mounting /dev/sda1 on /newroot failed: input/output error
!! Could not mount specified ROOT, try again
!! Could not find the root block device in .

[code]....

I am assuming that my issue has something to do with grub, and maybe specific UUIDs that don't match (?) but I'm not really certain. I have both Grub Legacy 0.9x and the newer Grub 2 installed (Sabayon is already moving over) but I still boot with Legacy, not with the new 2, as I don't know how to switch, and am not sure if I should yet. I thought that dd copied bit for bit, and I added the noerror´ just to try to get it all transferred, so I don't know what went wrong exactly, though something seems wrong with grub and the bootloader, I guess...

General :: Rsync To Copy Directory Tree From NAS Drive ?

Apr 10, 2010

I have a WD world book edition 1TB NAS drive, and just purchased an acomdata 1tb drive and connected it to the NAS via USB. If I recall I think the WD NAS has a ext_ or some type of linux filesystem on it, and the acomdata has a ntfs filesystem on it.

What I want to do is copy over certain directory trees of the NAS to the USB attached drive. I usually use MS synctoy to sync folders from my windows pc to the NAS drive, and MS richcopy to make the initial transfer from PC to NAS. For this operation though, since it is taking place entirely on the NAS and its connected drive, I thought that rsync would be the best option, and it is available on my NAS drive.

Last night I entered in rsync -avr /movies/* /usb1-1share1/ to copy the entire "movies" dir to the drive, which shows up as usb1-1share1 on the NAS drive. It copied most of the directory tree ok, but a lot of the folders were empty, so this morning I tried rsync -Carv --ignore-existing /movies/* /usb1-1share1/ to try and get all the files missed, without recopying the 24GB that did make it across. This also managed to copy a few more GB over, but not everything.

I am running the command from an ssh session on the NAS using putty on my PC, in as user "admin" which should have all rights over these folders. There is a bunch of errors in the command window like this: rsync: failed to set times on "/shares/usb1-1share1/movies/classics/fulldvd/First Blood DVD/.VTS_01_2.VOB.RxdjWZ": Operation not permitted (1)

I want to restart another session and get the files it missed, but I want to find out what I am doing wrong first. Should I be doing this as root user? am I missing some switches or just plain doing it all wrong?
