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? Using Ubuntu 11.04
I tried (unsucessfully) to load the alpha version of Ubuntu 10.04, & now my comp will not even load XWindows at all. I am trying to reload Ubuntu 09.10, (i have it on a flash drive), but cannot even get the thing mounted properly. The error i get is Disk devsdb invalid partition table
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?
i was writing a .img file to my usb stick with ImageWriter, but it didn't seem to do anything so i clicked the close gtk button and pulled the stick out of my pc. now my pc gives my an when i try to open the stick. is there any way to fix this. I can use win xp pro, win xp media center, win 7 starter, ubuntu 9.10 and ubuntu 10.04
I'm about to ditch Freenas as my NAS software and make it an Ubuntu server box. The mainboard is an Asus AT3ION-T dual core Atom board. Freenas runs happily from USB stick. I have no optical device to install Ubuntu from and would like to install Ubuntu Server to a USB stick.
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.
If I try to create a bootable USB stick by using dd to copy an ISO file to it, it usually works on PC but it won't appear in the boot menu of my Macbook. Is there an easy way to generate a bootable USB stick from an ISO file so that it would boot on a Mac?
The goal woulb de to have a USB stick, bootable on any system, containing a local webserver to host various offline versions of websites. This stick can then be used to show demos of websites to people, even if they don't have an internet connection.
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.
In order to try to rescue a USB stick which has probably a corrupted allocation table, I would like to get the device.I'm using Ubuntu 10 as a guest in VirtualBox, Host: Win7. Windows just tells me that the USB is not formatted.When tail -f /var/log/messages and I insert the USB stick, there won't be anything appended. fdisk -l does not show anything.
Today, someone who had problems with his usb flash drive showed it to me. I plugged it in my linux box.
Code: cat /proc/partitions only showed Code: sdb
and no partition name (sdb1, etc.). So I ran fdisk on it I deleted all the partitions (4 in all) and recreated a single partition taking up the whole drive and marked it as c (win32 vfat) I exited fdisk (w) and formatted the new partition
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:
I'm gonna sound weird but i have little curiosity abt bootable USB...I had downloaded Ubuntu 11.04 iso file and created a bootable USB using universal USB installer and installed Ubuntu on my machine...now my set file has gotten deleted bcoz of some reasons but i still have that Bootable USB with Ubuntu.....so here is my question if i copy the data from that USB to any other USB will it work?and if no, is there any other way to get back setup file from bootable USB or from the system in which it is already installed?
I am using Debian testing with KDE 4.6.5. However, when I insert my ubs stick, on top of the expected kde response I get a Nautilus window popping up (which is the Gnome file manager). How can I disable this?
I am trying something: I would like to access to some data stored on a usb stick while I am booting to the kernel using the "init=/bin/sh" parameters.Is that possible ?My USB stick is detected when I do 'cat /var/log/messages.log | grep sdb". I had to "modprobe usb-storage".Quote:localhot kernel : sdb: sdb1localhost kernel: sd 3:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable diskBut I still can't get it mounted.Quote:mount: special device /dev/sdb1 does not exist"
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
I'm trying to set up a netbook with Ubuntu for my computer-challenged Mother. I downloaded the image file to the download section of the new netbook, created a USB stick to boot from and then restarted the computer, pressing F2 in order to change the boot order. Using the "+" key I was able to put [Removable Dev.] on top: "1st Boot Device", but, and here's the thing, it is disabled: "A devince enclosed in the parenthesis has been disab led in the corresponding type menu." I do not understand this, nor do I know what to do
