I have a SMB share being mounted during boot using a /etc/fstab entry.All that seems to work fine, but on shutdown or reboot I found that the system hangs for a variable period trying to unmount the share. It appears from the log that the unmount is happening after the network connections are closed.Is there someway around this, or is there some other way I should be mounting the share so that it is closes successfully at restart or shutdown?
i don't understand this, why do you have to mount a usb or cd to use them? its such a hassle, in windows the usb/cd just works, but in linux you have to mount it, why? when ever i shutdown in linux, i am using ubuntu it says my drive didn't unmount on shutdown and it might damage my files?
Because I am working with some 3d software, and to be able to start it I need to symlink libGL.so.1 and libGL.so.1.2 from /usr/lib64/ to libGL.so.1 and libGL.so.1.2 from /usr/lib64/catalyst/ folder. I move existing libs to new names by adding .bak at the end of file name.
But everytime I restart machine soemthing changes libGL.so.1 linking from libGL.so.1.2 (in catalyst folder) to libGL.so.1.2.bak (in usr/lib64/ folder), original file. And I can not start 3d software. Can I stop that from happening somehow? Why is that happening at all?
ubuntu with windows xp on my laptop. My problem is everytime I out of ubuntu, the vga driver seems to disappear. I can't start x server, and when go into windows xp, the screen is on very low resolution state. After go into win xp and reboot, I can boot either ubuntu or winxp normally, everything is okey again. In summary:- When go into XP and reboot, I can boot ubuntu and XP normally.- When go into ubuntu and reboot, I can only boot with very low resolution in XP and can not start x server if boot ubuntu
I just installed Ubuntu 11.0.4 on an Asus 1005AH Eepc for a friend. The only changes I made after default install were to add French as primary language. Whenever I attempt to install a downloaded .deb or a package found through the Software Center, after asking for the password and a little delay the OS crashes and the system shuts down. There is no visual indication of what might be going wrong.
Running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Gateway laptop (new). When I select "shutdown," it does a restart instead. All latest updates and additional drivers are installed. I may have upgraded to 10.10 from 10.04 - can't recall now. I have 10.10 on a Toshiba laptop that works fine.
I'm in the process of building a new Fedora machine. I use the machine for a VMWare server, the file server for the house as well as a Linux desktop for work.My current machine has a single 1.5GB hard drive. The new machine will have a mirrored RAID drive(2TB). I'm also contemplating using a smaller 250GB drive for the OS installation. I would then divide up the 2TB drive into /home and /var/lib/vmware partitions where the bulk of the data would reside.The goal is to be able to unmount the /home and /var/lib/vmware partitions when I need to upgrade the OS version with the data intact and remount them once the new install is complete.
The goal is to keep the family network file shares and my Virtual machines intact while reinstalling the new Fedora OS from scratch. In theory it should work. I just want to mak an (in)sanity check to ensure it will work in practice.
After NFS mounting some system folders (i.e. lib, usr) of a slave cluster node to /lib & /usr located on the master cluster server I got into some problems: I forgot Ubuntu 10.04 was installed on this particular slave node, while the master node runs 9.10. Now, I am not able to unmount these folders using umount, or restart the system using shutdown, I get some error: " /lib/libblkid.so.1: version `BLKID_2.17' not found". Is there an alternative way to unmount these NFS shares, or to restart the system to undo the mounts? The systems are located elsewhere, so just physically restarting the system would not be the preferred option.
I've been running Debian Squeeze for the past couple of months. I decided to use a ReiserFS (not sure if it's relevant) and had a few problems where I had to hold the power button to shut down the computer. After that the system was not the same and froze from time to time (long periods of freezing) forcing me to hold the power button to shut down the computer, again.
Now, after /dev, /sbin...etc... not being found root not exiting, I have decided to do a new install, however, after several attempts at setting up new partition tables, deleting data on the HD and re-installing, I have failed. Maybe someone can give me some input... here are is my /var/log/syslog from when I ran the Debian install disk: pastebin - syslog - post number 1941832 (I think the end is most relevant).
In the mean time I am going to delete data on the current partitions (if I can) and try to re-install.
I am attempting to install 10.10 from the iso because I have no working cdrom. I uncompressed the .iso to a ext3 partitions and put the correct entries in the menu.lst file. It starts ok. The problem occurs when I attempt to install to the hard drive. At a point I get the error,
Failed to unmount partitions The installer needs to commit changes to the partition tables, but cannot do so because partitions on the following mount points could not be unmounted./cdrom I have a choice of continue or go back. If I continue the install hangs. If I go back I cannot continue. How do I fix this problem?
I am using a live-cd version of linux and want to install it to my hard-drive but when i try to unmount it and go into qtparted, it says it is still busy so i cant perform changes. This is my result when i type "mount"
aufs on / type aufs (rw) tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755) /proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev) sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
When I try to install Kubuntu 10.04 from the live CD (ran the installer from the Live Desktop) I get this error:
I then get sent back to the partitioner after clicking continue. Nothing but the installer/live desktop is using the cdrom. How do I install it? I have also tried running the installer without the live desktop, and it still throws the same error at me.
What I'm trying to do is to grant my regular user to locally mount partitions and shutdown the machine without a password. Here is what I've done to /etc/sudoers:
Host_Alias LOCAL = localhost Cmnd_Alias SHUTDOWN = /sbin/shutdown Cmnd_Alias MOUNT = /bin/mount, /bin/umount <my_username> LOCAL=(root) NOPASSWD: SHUTDOWN, MOUNT %wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL
My user is a member of wheel group and I want to type the password for each sudo command except for shutdown and mount. However I am asked for a password whenever I execute "sudo mount [...]" or "sudo shutdown [...]".
how to partition. I was getting sick of having to backup my data every time I had to reinstall Ubuntu, so someone recommend that I partition my hard drive so that I could store all my personal files ( documents, music, and vidoes ) onto the seperate partition. However I don't know how to do this. Furthermore when a new version of Ubuntu is release I always pick the install on the entire hard drive so the partition i installed would end up being deleted. How do you install Ubuntu by manually specifying the partitions.
My upstream DNS server is a bit slow, so I've installed the dnsmasq cacher locally. I have the service starting on runlevels 2, 3, and 5. But I can tell by Firefox's behavior that dnsmasq does not work upon boot. Firefox lets its own DNS cache expire after 60 seconds. When I do my second Google search five minutes after my first, the second DNS lookup for www.google.com is just as slow as the first.If I manually restart the dnsmasq service, I get the fast name resolutions I expect.
When I choose the manual partitioning scheme (the bottom radio button),I cannot specify mountpoints manually for some of my partitions.I have tried clicking in the mountpoint box, to no avail.The only choices I have are in the dropdown menu.My current partitions include ones for /data, /storage, and /art,in addition to/and /home.
I have various drives and partitions that I have been mounting through fstab, but sometimes I had to do it manually, but now, I can't get them to mount at all. At first I thought it might be a disk failure, but booting to a Live CD shows all the drives working fine. when the entries are added into fstab, $mount -l shows them as mounted to their relevant mount points, but the data does't show in either terminal or dolphin?
Typing $umount /dev/drive always returns /dev/drive not mounted.
When I comment out the entries in fstab and reboot and try a manual mount, I always get /dev/drive already mounted or /mount/point busy. $mount -l does not show any mount entry points for the drive. My /home/user partition is now full as I can't save data on the other drives, so I don't know if this is an issue. Also I use a mixture of encrypted partitions and non encrypted partitions, but this wasn't an issue before. Checking some of the logs didn't show any errors. The problem seemed to start when gdd was saving data to a partition mount point I thought was mounted but wasn't. I have since removed that data and even created a new mount point.
I am trying to install ubuntu 9.10 alongside windows on my laptop's harddrive. When I was going through the procedure it gave me the option of a guided partition of my harddrive... however there was an error. At this stage I unplugged my external harddrive because it's sometimess a bit dodgy and restarted the installation process. However everytime since that I have tried to install, it only gives me the option of erasing the entire disk or specifying the partitions manually
I have figured out manually setting the swap partition and setting "/" as the mount point for the primary partition during install. If during install, I want to create another partition to keep the OS separate from installed programs and such, to be able to do a clean install every 6 months and not loose everything (or anything) I have done prior.
I have just installed 11.04 on my Acer Z5610 and it won't shutdown or even restart noramally. I have to force shutdown every time. I installed the ati graphics drivers but still no change. What could be wrong?I have reinstalled 4 times, using usb and cd.
I have assembled an Intel D915PDT Administration Intel Desktop motherboard with an Intel 651 Processor which has 3.40 GHz 800 MHz FSB 2MB L2 Cache and 1GB DDR1 400 MHz RAM also GeForce 8400GS 512 Graphics Cards. But this PC have a problem, if once I shut it down I cant restart it again, but the next day it works properly. I tried in various operating systems like Windows XP service pack 2, pack 1, Windows 7 Professional and Ultimate 32bit and I have checked several times the BIOS settings properly but the problem is still the same.
