General :: GRUB Legacy - Unable To Determine The File System Type?

Dec 8, 2010

I had only Arch on an HDD.sda2 was "/".Now it's with Windows XP and sda2 is not a root any more but a container partition wich has sda{5,6,7} in it. I configured the dual boot and it works. It finds Arch and boots it, but not completely. Stops after some time and says: unable to determine the file system type of /dev/sda2. FSTAB is configured, sda{5,6,7} are on their places. So I can't boot Arch. XP boots correctly. What do I do with this error?Also it says: try adding rootfstype=your_filesystem_type to kernel command line.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Determine File Type Of Any Of Video File

Oct 14, 2010

I am writting a script to allow uploading of certain files. I want to limit the files by their filename and mime type, and by making sure the two match up.The first thing I need to do is make sure I've got all the mime types I need added. I have never done this before, but I understand that 'file' (which is what PHP's mime-type finding is based off of) uses magic databases that tell at which point in the file should have signatures of the filetype.

My trouble started when I was unable to determine the filetype of any of my video files. Currently, I have some .MOV and .MP4 files that I am using to test.

Debian :: Server Type Install On Legacy System?

Sep 6, 2011

I purchased an older Dell (p4 1.8G 256M) just to run some low demand programs. They don't require a GUI - just ssh/cli type of access. will be a server type - no kb or monitor. Can someone give me some pointers where to start at? I've never done a Debian install - the install process may address these questions - but figured I would throw it out here. I've used Ubuntu for several years now but I doubt that it would be the best distro for a legacy system....

Software :: Incorporate A Grub2 OS Into A Menu.lst File In Grub Legacy?

Mar 6, 2011

I have a "master" IDE HD upon which reside several Linux OSs and a couple of Windoze OSs. The boot system is Mandriva using Grub Legacy and the latter's menu.lst file is where I select which OS I wish to use. I use HD physical carriers for my HDs. I used GPartEd to copy over newly installed OSs on another drive to the "master" HD. The commands in the menu.lst file for Linux OSs are representative as follows:

Name of OS
root (hdx,x)
configfile /boot/grub/menu.lst

Task: Enter Grub2 which, I seem to understand, is a work in progress. I presume that some commands in Grub2 are not recognizable by Grub Legacy. I installed Debian 6 on another drive and I wish to incorporate an entry in the menu.lst file described above using the technique described above. Is it possible to use the menu.lst file in Grub Legacy (0.97) in order to boot the Grub2 Debian OS? Or am I chasing windmills?

Ubuntu :: Changing File System Type To Another Filesystem Type - Does It Effect On Data?

Feb 4, 2011

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 had very imp data in d:drive

General :: Cannot Determine Filesystem Type Of Partition?

Feb 27, 2011

As per these instructions, I got up to the end of the "Acquiring an Ubuntu filesystem" step (where it asks you to mount the newly created Ubuntu partition) and ran into a problem: The partition won't mount, as the file system type cannot be determined because I cannot remember the file system used during installation. Is there any command that prints the file system type of GPT partitions?

General :: Accidentally Type Concatenate Large File On Remote System

May 6, 2010

Every once in a while on a computer I'm ssh'd into, I will accidentally type "cat largefile.txt" and my screen will start rushing with text for the next 10 minutes. I'm always working in a screen session, so my current solution is to just log out and then log back in, and since it can go 100X faster when I'm logged out, it'll finish in the short time it takes me to type my password in again. Is there a better way? Either involving the fact I'm in a screen session? Or a way to do this within SSH? What doesn't work: detaching from the screen session (doesn't respond until file is done outputting) trying command to move to a different window in the screen session (also doesn't respond) typing ctrl+C to kill cat command (also doesn't respond, probably because the command is done and the buffers just have to catch up).

General :: Ext4 New File System Mounting Compatibility With The Older Ext3 Type?

Sep 7, 2009

How well is the ext4 new file system mounting compatibility with the older ext3 previous Linux installations ? I refer to Ubuntu 9.04 and the new Fedora 11 which have the option to install with the ext4 file format. Will it be better if I install with the older ext3, so that I will be able to mount all other Linux from each other in a multi-boot system ?

Fedora :: Can't Dual Booting With Grub (legacy) - Black Screen Grub Error 27

Jul 31, 2011

is it ever possible to do dual booting with grub(legacy) ever at all!. it is possible provided i take some pain, here is the link of that post [URL] i was coward and weak i didn't try that out then. but i did try it out. now so if u haven't seen the post .... I've installed Fedora 15 desktop(Gnome) with physical Logical volume called vg_fedora lv_root(ext4) ,lv_swap and lv_home(ext4), with 500MB /boot partition and had about 200GB free hard disk space ... so i wanted to install Scientific Linux 6.1 (because our school uses RHEL 6.1)

so, while running the installer I made (added) a logical volume lv_Scientific with ext4 FS and made its mount point (/) and used the MBR /boot which overwrote the Fedora /boot (completely OK and was as expected) i restarted after installation i got SL log in and as per the directions of the thread i copied the boot stanza from grub.conf of fedora 15 (which i already had copied and pasted into a text file and copied it from there)and pasted it into grub.conf of SL you may ask why did i choose same physical LVM too save swap space ... if i had made another physical LVM i had to make another swap ( i like LVM ... its cool)

completely unexpected happened Fedora now boots but not SL when grub starts i get this error 27 unrecognised commad and when i press <enter> i get grub menu with SL and fedora when i press on Fedora it works well i get my fedora login and i did login .. everything works fine but when i press SL it goes to the previous black screen grub error 27

Ubuntu :: Get The Version Of GRUB / GRUB-legacy To Boot Any Recent Windows 64 Beyond XP (Vista Or 7)

Dec 20, 2010

I've been using Linux for over a decade, so no need to worry about the obvious. I'm positive that I have my partitions/install correct. What has me baffled is that Fedora 14, which uses GRUB 0.97 (GRUB legacy) - boots Windows flawlessly every single time on the same hardware, but Ubuntu's (or the upstream Debian's) GRUB legacy do not - even though they are based on the same upstream code from the GNU Savannah servers.

No matter what I've tried I cannot get the Debian or Ubuntu version of GRUB/GRUB-legacy to boot any recent Windows 64 beyond XP (Vista or 7). All that it does is resets the computer when Windows attempts to boot, without an error. GRUB is notoriously difficult to compile, so before I try to compile code from RedHat's archives - any thoughts,experiences, similar issues - whatever?

Fedora Installation :: Replace Grub 2 With Grub Legacy?

Jun 2, 2011

I had Fedora 14 (x86) and Windows XP with Grub Legacy (Grub) for dual boot in my desktop.

I installed Debian and Grub 2 replaced Grub in the MBR.

Must I reinstall F14 to recover Grub as bootloader or is there another lighter way to do it?

Software :: Grub Error 2 - Bad File Or Directory Type

May 19, 2010

I am building centos - debian dual boot system. Each os has separate boot partition, both ext3.
Installed Centos 5.5 x86 with grub into MBR.
Installed debian 5.0.4 x86 with no boot loader.
Added debian to centos boot partitions grub.conf

Centos boots fine. When I tried to boot debian I got grub error:
Error 2: Bad file or directory type

Grub's command line auto compledion didn't work on debians boot partition - looks like it does't recognize that partition as ext3 (but when I booted centos and tried to mount debian boot partiotion - no problem it mounted ). And this is not single fs corruption - after another debian reinstallation the problem remained. Anyway recreating that fs using "mke2fs -j /dev/sdxx" solved the problem.

Software :: How To Programmatically Determine Monitor Type

Ideally, I could just look in /proc but I don't see anything there and I would like to be able to do so from a script perhaps written in bash or perl. Is there some place to get this info, say in a config file somewhere?
