General :: Optical Disks Won't Mount After Install FC8 / Resolve This?

Mar 19, 2009

Finally got FC8 installed on new machine, and now it won't mount CDs/DVDs - didn't change anything in BIOS, CD/DVD drive is only thing on the IDE controller (HD is SATA) so is it likely a driver issue? FC8 seemed to have correct (or at least working) drivers for LAN, audio, SATA, etc.

OpenSUSE Install :: Seamless Mount Of Encrypted Disks And New Session Creation After Each Screen Lock?

Sep 8, 2011

I installed openSUSE 11.4 on HP elitebook 2560p few days ago (using KDE live CD). In general system is working fine, but steel I cannot resolve couple of really annoying issues: 1. I've created encrypted partitions for swap and home during OS installation. As result the system keep asking for passwords for each of encrypted partitions before show login screen. That leads to situation when I have to type 3 passwords during each boot/reboot. I was using the same configuration (swap and home were encrypted) on Ubuntu 11.04 and there both encrypted partitions were mount automatically with no password typing after login to the system. Could you please tell how I can configure the same behavior on openSUSE 11.4 ?

2. I've enabled auto screen lock after 5 mins being inactive. As result when I going back to laptop and to unlock the screen the system shows login screen (default login screen with user selection). But when user and password filled in I click login it creates entire new KDE session. Therefore all staff that was open before screen lock is gone. However old session is still in the system (it appears in output from 'w' command).

General :: KDE4 - Mount Flash Disks Etc. On The Desktop Like In KDE3?

Jun 28, 2011

my grandfather uses a linux machine for web browsing, emails etc. So he mostly uses Firefox, Thunderbird and sometimes also Skype and now he has also Jabber account. Currently there is Pclinuxos 2009 installed (the newest one with KDE 3.5). I used a frozen community repository, but this also brings the problem I cannot update the used programs as I am afraid it would attempt to replace the old KDE as well.

I know I can update Mozilla apps by downloading a static rpm and install with KPackage or Konsole and similar with LibreOffice. Not much friendly... I also discussed switching to other WM - but GNOME surely not, maybe Xfce (other ones have other issues).

Is it possible to somehow make KDE4 to behave like KDE3.5 in some ways? At least auto-mounting of flash drives etc.

Ubuntu :: Can't Mount Cdrom Or Usb After Replacing Optical Drive

Mar 24, 2010

My cdrom was sort of working, but the tray was physically damaged. The usb was working without a problem.

After replacing the the cdrom drive with a similar model known to work well I could not get it to mount. I then tried to move important files to usb to try a fresh install. The usb stick flickered when I put it in, but it didn't mount. Same behaviour as the cdrom, the light goes on when I turn on the computer, but once I'm logged in I can't access the cdrom.

I have tried multiple variations of playing with fstab and trying to mount things in terminal to no avail. I just can't get Ubuntu to recognize the usb or cdrom even though their lights go on when I first try to use them.

Software :: Using UDEV To Automatically Run A Script On Optical Disc Mount?

Mar 1, 2010

I'm trying to get a script to run whenever an optical disc is mounted by the system but can't get it to work. I'm running Fedora 12 64bit and the drive is SATA device sr0.

Following online guides, I created a new rule file called '10-my.rules' in '/etc/udev/rules.d' which contains the following:

KERNEL=="sr0", RUN+="/usr/local/bin/myscript"

But nothing happens when a disc is mounted. The script itself runs fine manually and is clearly evident when launched so the problem must be the rule file. I've tried changing the name of the rule file in a few incremental steps from 10-my.rule to 99-my.rule to no effect.

I've gathered some information about my optical drive using the udevadm tool.
Here is the result of an info query:

P: /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/host1/target1:0:0/1:0:0:0/block/sr0
N: sr0
S: block/11:0
S: scd0

Slackware :: No Optical Drive Found - K3b Did Not Find Any Optical Device In Your System

May 22, 2010

I dont know when k3b stopped working but have just gone to burn a disk and when opening it tells me

Quote: No optical drive found. K3b did not find any optical device in your system. Solution: Make sure HAL daemon is running, it is used by K3b for finding devices.

I can boot from cd and can mount cds from within Slackware but for some reason k3b insists that i don't have a drive.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Optical Out From TV Into The SPDIF / Optical In On PC

Jul 5, 2010

I currently have the following:-

Optical Out from my TV into the SPDIF / Optical In on my PC
Optical Out from my PC into my Sony 5.1 Theatre Kit

The audio from the PC comes through ok when listening to music and movies. But unfortunately I can figure out how to enable the audio passthrough from my Tv so that the audio comes out of my theatre kit. In Sound Preferences, the hardware is set to 1 Output / 1 Input [Digital Stereo (IEC95 Output + Digital Stereo (IEC95 Input]. When I click on the audio tab, the Input Volume is at 100% and the Input Level is moving in conjunction with the audio coming from the Tv.

I saw it mentioned in another thread to install Gnome Alsa Mixer which I've done, it seeems to identify the audio chipset as Realtek ALC882, the motherboard is an Abit AB9 Pro. Hopefully I'm missing some config somewhere or there a box I should be ticking but I just can't find it.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Cannot Mount Two Of Disks?

Apr 29, 2011

I did a fresh install of 11.04. It didn't let me choose custom mount points for my disks, so I left non-system partitions unmounted in the installer. Big mistake. It seemingly screwed with two of my disks. I can see them in disk utility, but disk utility cannot identify partition information.

@fridge:~$ sudo mount /dev/sde1 /m2 -t ext4
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sde1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error

Red Hat / Fedora :: Could Not Mount Disks After 15 Installation?

Jul 7, 2011

I`d like to know what happens when with the disks the we include in the installation process of Fedora 15.Obviously, the HD we choose to be the system is entirely formated and reconfigured. But what about the others?hat does happen to them? I`m asking this because I have included two brand new disks of 2 TB, one of them with 900.000 files and the other empty, both of them formated with ext4, and completely functional on Fedora 14.However, after the upgrade, in the very first Fedora 15 boot, these disks disapeared from "places", and could not be mounted even via terminal. Opening the Gnome Disk Utility, I found out they had been changed to VLM (instead of ext4) and that they also lost their original lable. I am starting to be concerned because all the data there was important to me.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB Disks Not Mounting After The First Mount?

Feb 23, 2010

I'm having a problem with my usb disks, on opensuse 11.2. USB disks only mount the first time after booting.

The scenario is, I boot, then I plug a usb disk. It mounts properly and I can use it. After I unmount it and unplug the disk, I try to plug it in and it doesn't mount. And none of my other usb disks will mount as well.

The only workaround is to reboot.

I checked /var/log/messages, and the disk is being detected, it's just not being mounted.

Software :: ExtN Usb Disks Mount Options?

Jan 15, 2010

When using usb disks, there seems to be a difference in how they are mounted, based on the filesystem type on the disk.Vfat disks are mounted read/write for users, while extN filesystems are not.While I can fix that for individual devices, I would like to find a general solution, so that any usb storage device with any filesystem is mounted read/write for users.

Software :: Allow Any User To Mount Disks With Its Command?

Nov 26, 2010

I know how to modify the /etc file to change permissions, but I don't think that it could apply to this:

I'm using my Ubuntu desktop to compile Linux From Scratch onto a Virtual Box disk image. I can make it mountable by using a vdfuse program I downloaded, but then I have to use sudo to mount the actual partition. I do not want to give another account the ability to use sudo.

p.s. does this only happen to certain distros, or is a part of the Linux kernel?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: How To Put Mount Points For New Extra Disks

Aug 24, 2010

how do i mount extra harddrives...?

- After a hardrive crash which took out my opensuse 11.2, I installed three new harddrives instead of the old ones. I have installed xp. To see of I could triple boot, i thereafter put in linux mint. I did not like that and installed opensuse 11.3 - to ensure it would place itself on the two second harddrives (formatted in ntfs and with some data on) i before installation took those cables off.. And now alas.. there are no mount points.

So I tried yast, and found the partitioner, chose edit tried to put mount points .. however.. nothing seemed to have happened...

2- Certain Supermicro boards support IPMI (Kvm over LAN) and Serial over LAN and most notably Virtual Media Over Lan. I am wondering if there would be any problem installing CentOS using the Virtual Media over Lan.
