General :: Mounting Drive At Startup

Oct 8, 2010

I had windows vista on one partition, xp on another documents on another and programs on another.When I installed ubuntu on a new partition it very kindly let me see all the other partitions and mount them as necessary. I would like all my ubuntu files, documents music downloads to go right on to the documents partition so when I back up that drive to an external I have it backs up the documents drive it has all the files I have created in vista or ubuntu. Eventually I want to leave windows completely but I would still want to store all the ubuntu files on the documents drive.

I can go to "places" and mount the documents drive but what I would like to do is when I fire up ubuntu that the documents drive mounts automatically.

Fedora Networking :: Mounting Remote Drive On Startup

Nov 16, 2010

I want to mount a remote drive on bootup. I'm using FC14 and remote machine is FreeBSD. I've written a shell script to mount it. The script contains only one line:
Code:
mount 192.168.1.33:/home/user7 /media/mc33

I've to run this script from superuser mode to mount the file system(it works). So to mount it at bootup, I added the shell script to my PATH (/home/me/bin) and added it to Menu->System->Preferences->Startup Applications. Well this doesn't work because the root privileges are not present. I tried fixing it by giving root privileges to my shell script
Code:
#chmod +s mount-mc33
but it made no difference.

Fedora Hardware :: USB Hard Drive Mounting At Startup?

Feb 14, 2011

I just moved from ubuntu to fedora 14 and I'm having an issue with a portable USB hard drive. When the hard drive is connected at startup it mounts at /dev/sda and my other 3 internal hard drives are mounted at /dev/sdb, /dev/sdc and /dev/sdd; of course this is an issue with my FSTAB file since i mount some of the partitions in the first hard drive (/dev/sda) at some special points in my file system, so i need to restart my computer and unplug the USB hard drive to get things working, however when i was working with ubuntu this didn't happen. I need that the USB hard drive mounts at /dev/sdd at startup so my FSTAB could work.

General :: Dvd Drive Keep Mounting Incorrectly / Fix This?

Nov 27, 2010

Running Slackware 13.1

Whenever I insert a dvd or a cd, it automatically mounts to /media/[name], Like for example, the DVD I have in now mounts to /media/TBC3.2.0 (TBC3.2.0 is the name of the disc itself).

I'm needing this to mount to a regular point like /media/cdrom0 or whatever. How can I fix this?

General :: Mounting The Hard Drive From Unetbootin?

Jul 29, 2010

I recently installed Damn Small Linux using unetbootin. Booting Linux from unetbootin seems a lot like booting from a liveCD, so I'd like to mount my hard drive and see what I can do. Unfortunately it looks like Damn Small Linux has not mounted it automatically, and I'm having trouble finding my drive and mounting it from the /dev directory. There are several devices named /dev/*da* and I don't know which is my hard drive. My computer is an HP Mini netbook, so the drive is probably one of the new "solid state" drives if that affects anything.What can I do to find and mount my hard drive from unetbootin?

I need to mount a USB drive at boot up. I tried this entry in fstab:

But that did not do it. If I do a 'mount -a', that works.

This is for an embedded Debian system.

General :: Error Mounting Usb Floppy Drive?

General :: Mounting Hard Drive In Knoppix ?

May 29, 2011

I have been running a computer under Windows XP for years, and recently it stopped booting unexpectedly. It tries to load windows, but partway though loading a BSOD flashes and it shuts down. To remedy this and hopefully fix this, my frined lent me some Knoppix CDs that I could boot from. He also lent me some external hard drives. I want to be able to access my files on my old hard drive.

Here's the problem: (in Knoppix 6) When I try to mount my main partition of my hard drive, which shows as sda2 (sda1 is an old recovery partition left over from when I ran vista), the following message pops up: "A job is pending on dev/sda2" A little later another error window pops up: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." I want to be able to mount my hard drive in Knoppix 6.

General :: Mounting A Drive That Isn't Yet Connected On The Network

Jul 16, 2011

I have an external Samba network storage drive that I mount using 'mount -t cifs -o username=aaa,password=aaa //myserver /mnt/mountlocation', but I'm finding it to be a pain to enter that whole command every time I turn on that drive and connect it to my computer via the network. I could put that command in a script and run a simple script like 'mntdrive' that would run that command for me, but is there a way to have the drive 'pre-mounted' so that if it's available on the network it's mounted?

If I put the mount command in one of the startup scripts or in fstab, would it be available at the mount location when the drive is connected if it wasn't connected when the computer was first turned on? Or is mounting the drive manually, even if by running a script that does it for me, something I'll have to do every time I turn on that drive? Any creative ways around this? Would make things easier if it is possible.

General :: Automatically Set Write Permissions On Mounting A Usb Drive?

Aug 15, 2010

When I mount an external usb drive on linux (CentOs4), the permissions are by default set to read-only. Since there are multiple users on the computer who need to use the external drive, I want everybody to have rw permission for the entire drive. I also want them to be able to mount the drive if the computer has accidentially been shut down. They can use sudo mount to mount the drive, but this will only give them read permission, and I obviously don't want to allow sudo chmod.

Is there a default setting that I can change so that every new external usb disk automatically gets rw permissions?

General :: Mounting External NTFS Drive With Different Driver

Feb 15, 2011

I have an Ubuntu 10.04 box that accesses NTFS drives along with ext4. Recently, I switched from ntfs-3g to Paragon NTFS driver, which is proprietary, but free of charge. It feels quite faster on my internal drives. Now I have a problem with external eSATA NTFS drive. When it is detected, I mount it via Nautilus GUI, but it gets mounted with the ntfs-3g driver. (It can be mounted via command line with the Paragon driver, but this is less convenient. How can I configure my system (is it Gnome or some system-wide configuration ?) to mount all NTFS drives with the Paragon driver?

General :: Mounting Fedora Machine Drive Via USB Connection

Jun 3, 2010

I have a Fedora machine that was installed with Linux LVM. I took the drive of that machine, connect it to disk enclosure, and connect to another Linux machine via USB connection. I can see that the drive /dev/sda is there:

Code:
[root@dd ~]# /sbin/fdisk -l
Disk /dev/hda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes .....

I want to copy files from this drive. I try to mount it, but it didn't work. The /dev/sda1 is mounted fine, but it has only boot stuff.

Code:
[root@dd ~]# mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/drive
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
How I can mount the drive and copy my files from this drive.

General :: Mounting Windows Drive Automatically In Ubuntu?

Mar 16, 2011

I have dual boot on my laptop. First OS is Windows XP and second is Ubuntu 10.10.

When I click on places menu in Ubuntu, I can access Windowz XP Drives.

If I access some pdf file or document while in Ubuntu which is in Windows XP Drive, then it will come in Recent Document in Places menu.

Now I restart Ubuntu and click on Recent Documents and click on the document which I accessed in last session ( before restart ).

It says Unable to Open Document.

Then I click Places again and access my Windows XP drive. Then again I click Recent Document and click on document, I am able to open the document.

My guess is this happens because my windows drives are not mounted automatically when I start Ubuntu. How can I mount Windows drive automatically when I start Ubuntu.

General :: Mounting To Dreambox - Cant Locate The External Drive Anymore

Dec 21, 2010

Have a QNAP TS219P+ with two Samsung disks and a WD as extern disk on my Nas. I also have a Dreambox 800 Satellite receiver. Both Linux. I mounted the satellite receiver to my NAS and also a mount to the extern drive. This all works well, until.

I programmed the NAS to go down at midnight and to startup again in the morning. All the mounts are back and working, except the mount from my dreambox to the extern drive. It seems that the dreambox cant locate the extern drive anymore, while the NAS recognice the extern drive well. I first must shut down the whole system, reconnect the extern drive, startup again the NAS, startup again the dreambox reconnect the extern drive and with some luck all is up and working again.

The mounting is done via NFS and this is my line:

Has someone an idea what this mounting problem is?

General :: Automatically Mounting With Wide Open Permissions A FAT Formatted USB Flash Drive?

Feb 18, 2011

I have a netbook running Ubuntu Netbook Edition and I would like a USB flash drive to be automatically mounted whenever I plug it in. The drive is FAT formatted. It mounts when I plug it in but all files are only writable by my user, other users only have read access. I understand that I need to add a corresponding entry to the /etc/fstab file. I've added the following so far:/dev/sdb1 /mnt/USB_DRIVE vfat

Firstly, is that appropriate so far? I've created /mnt/USB_DRIVE as root. Next, I'm not sure what options I should be finishing the line with, especially to get all users to be able to write to the drive.

General :: Automatic Drive Usability On Startup?

Nov 5, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and I have a 1TB NTFS (internal) hard drive where I put all my files. The drive shows up in the "Places" menu, and if I select & open it, the drive and all the scripts & text files in it work. But, if I go to run the scripts without opening the dive in the places menu first, it just gives an error.

1. What is being done when I select the drive in the places menu?

2. Can this be set up automatically, so I don't have to open the drive every time after I start up?

Fedora :: Mounting Partition Upon Startup

Mar 31, 2010

I've migrated back to Fedora as I am just displeased with the majority of debian based distros and Sabayon at the moment. Fedora has grown up quite a bit since FC9 and I'm here to stay. I keep all of my media and documents on a seperate partition on my disk and am wondering how I can have it set to automatically mount it upon startup. It gets kind of annoying having to re-enter my password every reboot just to mount the partition that 90% of my time is spent on.

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...
