Ubuntu :: USB Memory Stick Will Not Load Without Restart

May 10, 2011

What can I do to correct the failure of the mount command to load the mem stick. In nautilus it reports that I do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "Kingston". In user settings there is only one user: Robin. The user privileges are showing as all ticked except for send and receive faxes, and use tape drives.

In the group for Robin there is only one member: Robin. Group id is 1000. There are a lot of groups available on the system. They all show Robin as unticked as a group member. To what groups should I make Robin be a member, without compromising security?

Ubuntu Installation :: Network Forward - USB Stick Seems Very Slow To Load

Mar 29, 2011

I tried Ubuntu Network version on a USB stick on my Netbook Samsung NF210 with 2GB RAM but this does not seem to be a viable way forward to me. Ubuntu on USB stick seems very slow to load. When resuming seemed to throw up errors. Resuming from Windows takes 3 seconds. I am reluctant to dual boot my netbook with Ubuntu after my experiences with my spare laptop. Is there a safe way to install Ubuntu on a netbook to dual boot with Windows Starter? how I get Ubuntu to work with a 'Three' Mobile dongle?

General :: Cannot Mount USB Stick

Sep 9, 2010

i am running Ubuntu 9.10. sometimes my USB device is auto detected and shows up on my desktop other time it is not detected?? anyway i am trying to figure how to Mount it. read about the ETC/FSTAB file and i may need an entry there. following is a copy

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).


i did try to update with an entry similar to the cdrom. my fstab is read only so no update. i have read other USB mount problems but not sure about any.

General :: MySql Database From Usb Stick

Jul 30, 2011

I recently installed a portable WAMP server on my usb stick. Really nice, I can do some php programming on my girlfriend's windows7 laptop without installing anything on it.I also have a LAMP environnement on my linux computer.When I plug my usb stick on my linux box, I can easily mount -o bind /usbstick/wwwfolder ~/public_html and work on my php script from there.

But my question is, is there a way I could get the database from my usb stick's MySql server, to run on my linux MySql server? So I can modify data base schema from my Linux workstation, doing some INSERTS in some tables, and then plub my usb stick on the laptop and get my up-to-date database running from the portable environnement?I don't know where / how MySql stores its databases. Basically, I want to "mount" the database from the usb stick in my Linux' installed MySql server, without extracting and importing the data, so there is just ONE database used for BOTH environnement.

General :: Formatting A USB Memory Stick?

Apr 30, 2010

I have a 4 Gb memory stick which used to have OpenSuse on it but I don't use OpenSuse and wanted to use the stick for something else - for backing up my Mozilla Thunderbird installation. I thought that by re-formatting the stick, using a file obtainable from the HP web site, in connection with installing Linux on a memory stick, that it would leave me with an empty one but it hasn't; there is still a lot of OpenSuse stuff on it. How can I "empty" it so that I can use it to transfer my Ubuntu Thunderbird to another computer which is also running Ubuntu. I was going to open a terminal and type:

sudo cp -avr /home/chris/.thunderbird/ /media/disk

I have already tried this but it didn't appear to work, so is this not the right way to go about it?

General :: Boot Linux System On USB-stick

Apr 20, 2011

I have installed a Debian System on a removable USB-drive just the same way I would do it for a normal harddisk drive.All was working fine until I tried to boot the system.I have set up the USB-stick as first boot device in the BIOS, and written grub in the MBR of the stick.When trying to boot it, "Grub Error 2" will always be risen (I am using grub-0.98).

The only drive I have installed except the USB-stick is a SATA-harddisk, so normally the USB-stick is called /dev/sdb.I have already tried changing root in menu.lst to (hd0,0) or the kernel root to /dev/sda1 but nothing seems to help.

General :: Creating A Minimalist Boot USB Stick?

Sep 27, 2010

I'd like to create a bootable USB drive containing a Linux minimalist: In fact I want to do is boot from the USB (compatible BIOS), as a minimalist Linux starts, and runs a file Shell, then at the end of this execution, displaying a root prompt (command line) to the execution of some commands summary.

- No GUI

- Network access required

- Minimal Linux system (the minimum necessary to boot and run a file Shell), with selection of preloaded commands (grep, pico, cat, ...)

I saw on the net that is doable with DOS on Windows, but nothing on Linux. So I need help, because everything I find is related to an existing system (Ubuntu, Debian, ...), I want a gold basis the most minimalist and lightweight as possible. What I presented is feasible or not? If yes, how to achieve it?

General :: How To Retrieve Lost Data On A Usb Stick

Jan 24, 2010

My wifes computer, IBM desktop, running XP, was hit by malware. I managed to save the data and tarred it and copied to a USB memory stick using my Linux box Ubu 9.1). I checked and saw it had been truly saved. Two days later I put stick in USB port and it was not recognized (usually any hot plugable device shows up immediately on desktop). I have tried plugging it into a windows machine and nothing was found. We are both very desperate at this apparent loss but because something similar happened with an Iomega zip disk.

General :: Making Bootable Usb Stick For Clonezilla?

May 6, 2010

One of my computers is a netbook with no CD drive, so I need to create a bootable USB stick so I can reload a Clonezilla-made backup image from an external HD on to the netbook.I bought a 4Gb thumb drive and used Parted Magic to create a 200Mb partition on it. I formatted this and the remaining free space both as FAT32 and used Parted Magic to flag the small partition as bootable. Then I loaded the Clonezilla Live files onto this boot partition.Now the thumb drive boots up ok, but goes straight into a Parted Magic menu screen from which there is no way out! It's just the menu screen alone and has no PM functionality. This also happens on other systems where there is no PM installed or in the CD drive. So it must be something PM has done to the thumb drive.

General :: USB Memory Stick Has Doubled In Size - Why Is So?

Nov 24, 2010

I have an OCZ Mini-Kart USB stick which says 2GB on it, and it has been a 2GB stick for the last 3 years. However, I recently put it into a PC running XP (which had no viruses as far as I am aware) and all of the files in the single subdirectory became corrupted and unreadable. All files at the root of the USB stick were fine, and I could still boot from it (I had Puppy linux installed).

I looked to see if the corrupted files in the subdirectory were recoverable, but they were all inaccessible, (with freshly mangled file-names containing multiple copies of the characters '�' and '=' amongst others), and reporting file sizes of up to 1.9GB each. I examined the memory stick with fdisk and with Gparted, and saw that it was reporting two 2GB partitions, which was certainly not the case before, as I had recreated the partition table several times in the past.

I removed all partitions, created a new partition table and recreated a single partition, which is now 4GB in size. I have trashed it and recreated it three times, formatting it with ext3, ext2 and finally FAT32, all of which reported a partition size of 4GB. I currently have a 4GB FAT 32 partition, and have tested it by successfully copying a 3GB .iso file to it.

Although it's nice to have a 4GB memory stick, it does seem rather odd and I no longer trust it with my data.
