General :: USB And Hard Drive Listed In /proc But Not /dev

May 10, 2010

I'm working in CentOS 5.4 with the default 2.6.18-164 kernel (which I will be editing but have reverted back to in order to solve this problem.)

Near the end of the init script I have thrown a /bin/sh to get into a busybox bash shell in order to test some scripts. Ive attached the init below.

While in this shell I can see my usb drive in /proc/bus/usb/devices and my hard drive in /proc/scsi/device_info however I cannot mount them as they are not in /dev.

I have scsi emulation set in the kernel. When I plug in a USB stick it finds the address but still no sign of it in /dev. There are other modules listed in /sys/module such as usbcore that dont show up in lsmod, is that possibly the problem?

Init Script

Quote:

#!/bin/nash
mount -t proc /proc /proc
setquiet
echo Mounting proc filesystem
echo Mounting sysfs filesystem
mount -t sysfs /sys /sys

[Code].....

Hardware :: Palm Device Listed In /proc/bus/usb/devices - But Not In Lsusb Output

Sep 5, 2009

When I connect my Treo 650 with a USB cable it works sometimes and not others. A little investigation showed
that it always works when I see the Palm device listed in the output of lsusb. While trying to diagnose why it appears sometimes and not others, I discovered that it sometimes appears in /proc/bus/usb/devices and not
in lsusb. I didn't think that was possible!

I've tried running kudzu (the Red Hat hardware discovery tool) and killing and restarting udevd.

General :: Move Smaller Hard Drive To Partition On A Larger Hard Drive?

Mar 16, 2010

My parents bought a new hard drive for a laptop that I've owned for several years. It's much larger than the current one, so I plan on splitting it up to dual boot it with Ubuntu.I have no problem with partitioning a drive (I always keep a LiveCD handy), but my question is this: how can I go about moving the existing partition to the new drive? This is a laptop, so I can't simply plug the new drive into another slot.

Also, even if I manage to move it, will Windows still work on the new drive in a larger partition? I've had this laptop for quite a while, and I've lost the recovery discs that came with it a long time ago. I also have a lot of software without CDs to reinstall them with. This makes not reinstalling Windows a high priority.

General :: Hard Drive Malfunctions When Other Hard Drives Are Connected?

Aug 23, 2010

I have a SATA drive that worked fine. Then I installed two more hard drives into my system. When these hard drives are installed, if I try to access the SATA drive in Linux, it will start lightly clicking and then the drive will become unavailable. If I power on the machine without the other two hard drives then it works fine. What could be causing this to happen? I don't think it's heat because the two hard drives are far away from the SATA drive.

Fedora Installation :: EIDE Hard Drive Recognized As Sda Hard Drive

May 1, 2010

Trying to install Fedora 12 using the 6 CDs. Trying to install on an older x86 box.Problem is that when detecting my hard drive, Fedora 12 recognizes it as a sda hard drive instead of hda hard drive. I have no SCSI connected to my computer what so ever. It's an old fashion PATA Western Digital hard drive.If I proceed with the install, Fedora 12 only installs 200MB of the OS from the first CD only. No options for additional software or anything.

General :: Dsl Does Not Detect Hard Drive

Sep 10, 2010

I have a Toshiba Dynabook 2010 laptop and I want to install DSL linux on it.The problem is when I boot with DSL Linux there is no hard drive named /dev/hda1 and fdisk -l command does not return.How can I overcome this problem?And I could only boot into DSL if I use the nofstab as a kernel parameter.when I boot with fstab then kernel panic will occur.

I again checked, now there is a /dev/hda but my hda should contain two ext3 partitions.But the problem is the kernel doesn't recognize them.I got debian in my Had disk too.The problem is debian can recognize these two partitions.

General :: Backing Up 80G Hard Drive 1G Per Day?

Dec 16, 2010

I want to securely backup my 80G HD, but doing a complete backup takesforever and slows down my machine, so I want to backup just 1G per day. Details: % First hurdle: on the first day, I want to backup the "first" 1G of the hard drive. Of course, there really is no "first" 1G on a hard drive.% After 80 days, I'll have my whole HD backed up... assuming none of my files ever change, which of course they do. So the backup plan/program must also catch file creation/changes as they come along. % The backups must be consistent, in that I can restore my system restoring the backups sequentially. In other words, "dd if=/harddrive" probably won't work.

% The backups should encrypt file contents AND names, but I don't see this as a major hurdle. % Once the backup has backed up everything (even changed files), it can re-backup the first 1G on my hard drive. Even though this backup is redundant, that's OK, because I always want to be backing up something (eg, if I'm backing up to optical media, the older media might start going corrupt). Is there a magic backup plan/program that does thisIn reality, I want to do this for multiple machines drives each, but think that solving the above will solve the general

General :: Malware On Hard Drive ?

Jun 18, 2011

I have seen the light and will convert to Linux. I have booted this laptop from a CD with Ubuntu. The hard drive has been seized by a fake Window XP restore trojan(?), which sends all kinds of error messages and shows there are no files on the drive and no access to it. Using Ubuntu I can see everything is there.

Is there a way I can use Ubuntu and something like Malwarebytes to kill the malware on the drive? Then I believe I could back it up before I reformat it and bring it into the Linux world.
