My system has a 3-1/2 floppy drive. I do not know how to open it to copy files to a CD. My system knows itis there since booting with a data floppy gives a non system disk error. nce in Ubuntu, the floppy drive does not appear in "places computer".ince I am completely new to this system, I do not know how to proceed
error message:Unable to scan Floppy Drive for media changes 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 am having a Promise TX4650 RAID controller & trying to create a driver floppy for installing the drivers. Also am using RHEL 5, I can create the driver floppy, but when I type "mount /dev/fd0 /media/floppy" I get error: "mount: mount point /media/floppy does not exist".Can I get the files in a format other than the ext2 floppy image, so that we do not need to use a floppy drive?There is a readme file inside the driver archive & you can use that as a reference.
I am trying to make small kernel. I have written many programs and produce many .bin and .o files but what I want that to load every file from a specific location in specific sectors but don't know how to do that in linux , in dos same can be done by debug command.If It is not possible to achieve the specific location criterion please tell me how can I just copy many files serially to a floppy image.I have another question that if files are copied in floppy. How could I know in which sector the file has been loaded in floppy so that I can retrieve them by BIOS interrupt INT13.
I'm having a problem with my hard drive. Windows can't even open it. I run DSL linux and successfully moynted the drive so I can view my file structure. I thought I just connect my other windows HD, mount it and then just copy all the folders I need. Unfortunatelly I'm getting cp: cannot create directory blabla - read-only file system. Is there a way at all to copy NTFS files in Linux?
I've been considering erasing Windows off my hard disk to gain some space, but until then, I want to know that I can do everything I'll want to do.
I've followed many tutorials and threads on the internet, but they never work for me. I added several files to a floppy in Windows, and the floppy works fine in all the Windows computers I've tried. However, when I boot into Ubuntu 10.04, I click on the Floppy Drive in nautilus, but it says "Unable to mount location. No media in drive." From the terminal, it seems that I can mount the floppy (no error message, and the floppy drive clicks), but when I navigate to a folder in /mnt or /media, the folder is empty.
Is there something weird about the FLOPPY DRIVE on F12? Nothing associated with it works & I can't get an icon for it. Also the FLOPPY FORMATTER no longer works. (mine is an internal drive)- I had some really miner quirks with it in 10 but it worked. I had some workaround launchers that I used until an upgrade semi-fixed it. (It would give a false error that it couldn't run but did. I just ignored it.)
I tried to edit FSTAB to cure a problem of my BACKUP drive showing up twice*** so while I was in there I added the stuff for the floppy & it still doesn't work. If I try to mount it manually, I get the error that /dev/fd0 doesn't exist.I tried to find some info on it & it SEEMS that there MAY be a bug but I'm not sure as the info is a bit confusing as to just what version & such they are talking about. And there was also the problem that all the stuff seemed to be OLD or not related to my problem.I why I quite hacking at my system, is that all my workaround launchers & the formatter say that there are GNOME things missing & they can't run. So I figure that there is something missing or screwy already & that I'd better ask BEFORE I make things worse or actually break something.With the fact that floppies are about gone, it's getting to be not that big of a deal but I still find myself having to use them for repair purposes (albeit, not as much) & it gets to be a bit of a pain to fire up M$ just to do something like this.
*** It appears that the one in FSTAB was the one I needed, so where would the OTHER one be so I can get rid of it? Or at least make it auto mount.
I'm connected remotely with Putty to a linux server and I need to get the files from a directory on the server onto my hard drive on my laptop. I don't know what the secure shell command is to download it or what exactly I need to do so I can get these .root files from the server copied onto my local hard drive.
I can't copy a few files from my pen drive. Got the files from a public computer, with windows. I use fedora 10.
cp gives the following error---> cp const1.java /home/user1/Documents/scjp cp: cannot open `const1.java' for reading: Permission denied lsattr shows this---> lsattr const1.java lsattr: Permission denied While reading flags on const1.java mount shows this---> /dev/sdc1 on /media/disk type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,allow_other,blksize=4096)
I have a USB drive on which I want to install Arch Linux (using the installer, not unetbootin or something similar, as I want the drive to be persistent.) The computer from which I want to boot this USB supports booting from a USB floppy, not a normal drive. Is there any way for me to make a USB floppy on another drive and use that to boot the normal USB drive?
I've installed RHEL 5.3 on a Dell Desktop. I don't want to install GRUB to the MBR. Is there a way to boot up RHEL from a floppy?I've installed GRUB on to a floppy but not having much luck starting up RHEL. In the past Slackware has allowed me to startup the kernel from a floppy using LILO. I was hoping that there is way for RHEL too.
After inserting the drive into a usb port and run dmesg because the drive is not mounted all, I've the following added to the message log:
usb 5-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2 usb 5-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice usb 5-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0644, idProduct=0000 usb 5-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0 usb 5-1: Product: TEACV3.0 code....
I have problem with my laptop Samsung VM7000. The BIOS has a password on which I don't know. It has no HDD and the CD-ROM is damaged. I have a FDD floppy drive and two USB slots, they work (tested). To remove password I tried this http://dogber1.blogspot.com/2009/05/...ered-bios.html but it didn't work.Then I've found a Linux based password cracker http://www.pccmos.com/ but, since my cd drive is dead, I can't launch it. I can write it on a flashdrive, but my laptop is not booting from flash, so I have to make a floppy-boot-disc to boot flash via floppy, but how?
Does anyone have any thoughts on getting linux on a x86 Compaq N600c with only a floppy drive, and the USB and PXE options are out of queastion (already tried with Win XP), only option I figure I have is to find a downloadable version that will install from current OS (Win 98se, freeware Service Pack 2.0 patch), but does such a thing exist, and if so where can i find it, (must be GUI). For those of you scratching your head as to how i intend on getting the download to it since i don't have internet. infrared import from another computer that is my gf's and will kill me if i get any linux software on her comp.
2010.07.21 while trying to install Ubuntu 10.4 I've been trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell workstation and am unable to get the Grub-2 bootloader to load properly. It seems to be failing for lack of a floppy drive on the system resulting in an error message that reads : error: fd0 cannot get C/H/S values.
I've gone through the Grub-2 page at [URL].. to no avail and other sources having similar problems have likewise turned up no solutions. here's the background: A while back I was trying to install a different version of Linux and had the same problems, then had to set the project aside for a bit. I don't think this has anything to do with Linux or Ubuntu per se, but rather Grub.
The system is an old (4-5 years) Dell workstation that has one drive (128 GB) set up for Windows XP and a second new drive (500GB) which I installed for Linux. There is a DVD/CD drive and the system contains no floppy drive at all. In one attempt to get this working I tried modifying the BIOS to indicate there was a floppy drive - this created a failure earlier in the chain with the BIOS failing to load properly, not unexpected, just a shot in the dark at that point.
At the moment I am considering just running out to buy and install a cheap floppy drive to see if that helps. I'll never use the thing though so I'd rather find a solution that doesn't require me to spend money on useless hardware. In any case, here's the /boot/grub/grub.cfg contents:
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE # # It is automatically generated by /usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig using templates # from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub # ### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/00_header ###
My Freenas server is currently off line for the moment pending the arrival of some thermo paste and I need to get some files off one of the drives. The drive is formatted in the UFS file system.I am using a usb to sata converter to hook the drive up to my laptop which is running 10.04.I am then able to browse the files by going to my /mnt folder. The problem is I cannot copy any of the files. I get a permission error. I have tried chmod 777 command to change the permission but I get an error about it being read-only. I tried running nautilus as root to copy the files but I still get a permission error. Using nautilus as root to change the permission or alter any of the read/write options fails because the drive is read only.
From what I understand I can only mount the drive as read only because its UFS and I can't change the permissions because its read only. Sounds a bit like an endless loop lol.Running Freesbie (freebsd live cd) didn't do me any good as it didn't even detect my hard drive and I don't want to learn a new OS just to transfer my files.ny advice would be appreciated. I really don't want to wait until my thermo paste comes and I will be on the road for the next couple of weeks so I won't even be able to get it setup. I need these files now.
I'm mostly a linux-idiot but I tried to get an update for a laptop that was running xubuntu. Anyway, it won't boot and instead takes me to a screen where it says "press s to skip mounting, or press m to recover manually" or something like that. I've pressed S, and then it tells me that it can't find /tmp or something, and I have to turn it off and back on to do anything. Pressing M doesn't help much either... at least not for a mostly-linux-idiot like me. I would do a clean install, but there are a few files I absolutely have to have from the hard drive. recover the files I need from my hard drive to a usb drive while using a Live CD?
They filled up the hdd and need more space. I first considered just adding a slave drive, but thought it might be better just to copy all of the content from the old drive to the new drive. Then, make the new drive as the master and the old as a backed up copy slave drive.
I have recently installed linux 'uberstudent'and find it doesnt recognise my floppy drive but more importantly I cant install my printer a samsung ML4500 laser. There are readme files (reproduced below) but I just dont know enough about the system to know what to do with them " does it mean anything to anyone ? I am a bit reluctant to experiment with terminal incase I mess up the entire system ! also could their be a connection between this and the floppy not working ?
1.AUTORUN will not run
2.clicking cdsetup.exe and selecting 'open with archive manager' results in : 'an error occured while loading the archive'
3.clicking cdsetup.exe and selecting 'open with wine windows programe loader' results in 'samsung printer setup window'etc, and it appears to load normally until 'PROGRAM ERROR 'DAC1.EXE encountered problems and has to be closed.
4. Inside the linux folder are three file's, copied and shown below
Im trying to setup samba so that i can copy some files from my windows 7 machine over to the drive on the opensuse machine running 11.2. i believe i set everything how it should be set up but no matter what i do i cant write filesfrom the windows machine. Here is my smb.conf
# smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE if the # samba-doc package is installed. # Date: 2009-10-27 [global]
