General :: Read Swap Header Failed Invalid Argument (F12)

Aug 25, 2010

When I boot, after startup and before I log on, an error icon appears. I click - it shows a summary of the material that normally rolls by on a unix startup. One item is checked. It says:

Code:
Enabling /etc/fstab swaps: swapon: /dev/mapping/vg_knox-lv_swap:
read swap header failed: invalid argument
I have 1 disk - it has 2 partitions - one an 83 type with a file system in it, holds the kernel, mounts at /boot.

The second partition is an 8e type contains a volume group logically split between lv_root and lv_swap and physically located on sda2. As I understand it, the system is having trouble processing the commands for lv_swap. I am tempted to mess with these commands, but don't have enough know how to do so and am short on the time required to learn enough to master this subject.

Hardware :: Error Mounting - Failed To Read Last Sector (3907027119): Invalid Argument

Sep 7, 2010

I'm trying to mount my new Western Digital Elements 2tb hard drive, but every time I try to plug it into the computer I get this error message:

Quote:

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 12: Failed to read last sector (3907027119): Invalid argument

HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet, or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...), or a wrong device is tried to be mounted, or the partition table is corrupt (partition is smaller than NTFS),

[code].....

But when I tried opening the hard drive from nautilus I still got the same error message as above (no other volumes was connected at the time). I've also tried opening and watching it in GParted, and I can see it there as a volume that's not allocated. When I tried to allocate the hard it I got the message that it had no partition table. And that I cold make one. I tried and Ubuntu suggested to make a MS-DOS partition table for it. But there I got a little scared as I've not done this before. The external hard drive is brand new and was brought today. And I don't have the possibility to test it with Windows or Mac as I'm using Linux only on my machines.

Fedora X86/64bit :: Device-mapper - Reload Ioctl Failed - Invalid Argument Failed To Suspend LogVol00

Sep 10, 2009

I've read hundreds of threads on this problem but they seem to be intermittent and the resolution has been using a different kernel version.

I'm using the latest kernel but I still have this problem

Running Logical Volume Manager gui and attempting to extend the volume results in the same error.

General :: Kickstart Installation Fails With Error Failed To Read Rpm Header?

Dec 16, 2010

I am running into a strange problem where kickstart installation fails with Error failed to read Rpm header, This happens when installation starts formatting of disk is also completed some of the rpms installed and then suddenly installer stalls with failed to read rpm header.

I have kept kickstart and install media on same host. I have changed the install media from http/nfs/ftp just to check is there any problem with the media but no luck.

However same installation with the same kickstart file works fine when both install media and ks file is kept on another linux host.

I am using RHEL 4 ,I do checked /var/log/messages it does not give any information on the failure and this started happening recently till that i was using the same server for my linux deployment.

Note: pxe setup, boot server ,install media and ks file all are in same server.

Ubuntu Installation :: Laptop Won't Boot - Swapoff Failed: Invalid Argument

Jun 5, 2011

I have a SONY laptop, PCG-7181M model. It came with Windows 7 but I changed the OS to Ubuntu. Last night it asked me to upgrade to the new version called Natty Narwhal. I had to go to bed so I changed the sleep timer on the laptop to 2 hours, the time it would have taken the upgrade to complete. I woke up and the laptop was off, now only the grub menu shows up and the laptop won't boot. I tried doing this: - When the machine boots up, press Esc to get to the Grub menu - Select one of the recovery mode options. This will boot you up to a single-user root prompt. - Run sudo fdisk /dev/sda (this assumes that your hard drive is at sda) - Type p to see which hard drive partition is labeled Linux swap. In my case the partition was /dev/sda5. Type q to exist fdisk. - Type these commands:

Ubuntu :: Error: Device-mapper: Reload Ioctl Failed: Invalid Argument

Jun 13, 2010

I'm having some difficulities with truecrypt and cannot figure out what's wrong since this is my first attempt to create hidden encrypted partition. I'm using ubuntu 9.10 64b with latest 6.3a truecrypt. After using truecrypt gui (just command truecrypt) I've tried: create volume-->create volumne within a partition/drive-->hidden trucrypt volume --> select some /dev/sdX by my choice --> select aes & sha512 --> password --> and format it.

when formating finished message "wrong ss, swith or wrong superblock of /dev/loop0" appeared. I've got no idea what could I do with it neither know whats program trying to do! Ok formating's done, then if you're trying to mount that partition then I would expect prompt for password, but that did not happen ...

EDIT: sudo mount /dev/loop0 /media/tmp/ also complaint about wrong superblock, but that does not ring any bell since i've got no idea what /dev/loop0 is or is for...

EDIT2: I've tried another approach also:

sudo truecrypt -t -c
sudo truecrypt -t /dev/sda3 --filesystem=none

but the first command finished creating 100G drive in 1 sec (nonsense) and latter one prints:

Error: device-mapper: reload ioctl failed: Invalid argument
Command failed

Ubuntu :: Error - Mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/[insert Hex Code Here] Failed: Invalid Argument

Mar 18, 2010

I'm running Kubuntu Karmic on my Dell Inspiron laptop - about 200 bug fixes behind because my only available internet is a cellular connection on a crappy wi-fi router - and last night, I suspended it, but it shut down instead. Not a problem, it does this fairly often, figure the RAM gets jostled or something.

But when I go to boot it up, it gets stuck at the pre-loading screen before getting garbled and dropping to the shell, where it says "mount: mounting /dev/disk/by-uuid/[insert hex code here] failed: invalid argument". Of course, mounting /root/sys, /root/dev and /root/proc fails, (directory does not exist) and it gives me the busybox initramfs prompt.

General :: Svn: Berkeley DB Error While Creating Environment For Filesystem Repo/db: Invalid Argument

I'm having trouble getting subversion working on Centos 4.7. When I try to create a repository using:

Code:

svn: Berkeley DB error while creating environment for filesystem repo/db: Invalid argument
svn: bdb: Berkeley DB library configured to support only DB_PRIVATE environments

I've searched the Net, with little luck. Threads seem to suggest that Centos has this flag compiled into the Berkeley DB RPM by default; whereas SVN doesn't want it. Someone, somewhere, must have got this to work and I'm sure it's something really simple I'm doing wrong.
