I've tried to reload a server 3 times, every time I try to setup 4 and 6GB partitions through the disk druid gui during RHEL install by entering 4096 and 6144MB, i end up with partitions showing 3.9GB and 5.9GB when i do a df -h after it boots. Is there a way to make disk druid ask for GB instead of MB during the install process so i can just type 4 and 6 and it will show up right in a df -h.
I have 4 virtual disk on AX4-5i. RHEL for some reason shows 16 partitions in /proc/partitions. I got lot-lot of IO errors in dmesg. Some of those 16 partitions "work", others just give (on using fdisk for example): Unable to read /dev/sdb. On EMC I have 4 ports, so it might be somehow releated to this.

I've googled and read docs but got no idea what to do. Any experiences with EMC/RHEL/iSCSI - I just don't understand where those 16 (and half of them not working/giving lotof errors) come from? For example Citrix Xen on similar network conf can see/use same EMC thoughr iSCSI nicely. SO there should'nt be network/auth issues (not using CHAP btw). I got feeling that problem is on RHEL iscsi conf side.
I have a 2GB file which is a dd image of a block device. The block device (a USB-connected flash memory) contains multiple partitions, and therein lies the problem. I want/need to access the various partitions in the image file, but need to do this without actually using a physical flash memory device. If the image was that of a single partition, I could simply mount it on a loop device, and access the filesystem as necessary. However, I can find no kind of virtual block device upon which to write/mount the image.
I've searched the net exhaustively for anything that would seem to allow me to do what I need, but without even a sniff of success. Sadly, I have seen bits of information that suggest "you can't get there from here". Even the outstanding dd tutorial by AwesomeMachine on LQ didn't help. Anyone know of a kind of virtual block device on which a multi-partition image can be written and mounted? Or any other way I can access individual partitions (with various filesystem types on each) and then re-assemble them back to a single image?
After 2-3 partition an extended partition automatically created in which I am not able to create specified capacity i.e., say I want 150g of /photos partition, the /videos partition is automatically reduced and a free space at the end appears. Some free space is always there which i am not able to understand. Nevertheless i clicked to create, but I get an error viz. 'device not created'.
I created a VM disk image with kvm-img, but I forget what was the max size of that disk image when I created it. Currently, its size is 6.2G, I want to install some large packages in that VM, so I want to make sure the disk image can expand to an adequate size.
I've created a script to FTP some files from a RHEL box to a EMC NAS and the script works because if I run it script manually it runs fine and transfers the files to the NAS but when I schedule it in the crontab the script runs but it doesn't transfer anything and I pipe the output of the cron job and I see message about 'passive mode refused' and lib: not a plain file, sys: not a plain file, etc...I did a vi ~/.netrc which contains the a single line of "machine xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx login ftpuser password xxx"
My script looks like: /usr/bin/ftp -i xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx <<EOF cd ftpdir
I used Acronis' Disk Director Suite 10.0 ["DDS"] to create 7 logical partitions of 23GB each, into one of which I asked Fedora 11 to install. Fedora 11 completely ignored me and created 2 primary partitions of its own: a 217.4GB, a 2GB and a 2GB "unallocated." I will likely delete this installation for a number of reasons. How can I force fedora to install into a 23GB logical partition that I created for just that purpose? If I can't use DDS-created partitions then why do I need DDS-created partitions?
i already make a copy of all my data and i already download the live cd of fedora 15
here is my computer specifications of my netbook
AMD SEMPRON SI-42 2.10 GHZ 2,00 GB OF RAM 32 BIT SYSTEM ATI RADEON HD 3200 GRAPHICS 232 GBS OF FREE SPACE DVD-RW
this pc works good in Fedora 15 ? I do not know how much space to allocate for the partitions to be created, and I do not know which partitions must be created. I need a very good performance, my computer is able to give it to me with Fedora 15?
I have vista and opensuse 11.2 on my computer, the problem is i can't open ext3 partitions from vista but i can the other way. I tried Ext2fsd but the linux partition is always in a read only mood even when i change this option. Also, all folders are empty I downloaded the program as admin and compatable with XP SP2.
I want to make the transition from windows (sick of it). Im using Lenovo G530 Laptop and was wondering which would be the best Linux Os (meaning Ubuntu, fedora or something else). Keep in mind that I mostly use my laptop for college work and a lot of video and audio editing. I also want to be able to run Dual operating system (meaning that I wanna run both Linux and Windows) from the same computer as it might be easier for me to make the transition a little bit more easier. That being said I need someone to give me tutorials (video preferred) on how to make the partitions on the hard disk and step by step instruction on how to install both the two OS in my laptop.
i have installed ubuntu version 9 and i cant seem to find where hard disk partitions are,what do i do?also what do i do to install the webcam and to change from gnome to Kde enviroment!!i also installed virtualbox but i seem not to find the icon
Mounted second hard disk still report 0 bytes even when files are already deleted in rhel5 . I already checked the lost+found and trash . It only happen that disk space on deleted files cannot be recovered after the disk reach full capacity , but if it does not reach yet its full capacity , deleting files will recover the disk space . The format of the disk I have mounted is ext3 also have tried ntfs using fuse but the same problem , once allowed to reach 0 bytes I can no longer recover space with deleting files and had to reformat and restore the backup
I know I do fdisk -l /dev/sda and see all the partitions on that disk, and I know I can do mount and see all the mounted partitions. Is there a way to do both at the same time? Ideally what I'd like to see is the output of fdisk -l but with an additional column that shows if a partition is mounted or not.
This might be a really silly question, but I installed Ubuntu yesterday (which is awesome) but I can't seem to locate any of the other drives that I had hooked up. It's as if the partition with the install is the only one in existence. Is there some trick of the trade I'm not aware of or what's up?

I want to search an entire subtree of /, in the file system, for all files, with extension html, created on the hard disk. In addition, these have to be the last five created. I think I could split the problem into two parts: (a) Forget about the last condition. Then this is a job for the find command. (b) Sort the output of find using the date as the key, then use 'head' to print the desired output. But even two such simple steps are enough to justify the writing of a shell script. And here lies my weakness.
My script writing knowledge is rudimentary. What's the final purpose? Well, I lately saved four or five LQ pages onto disk containing information I consider valuable to me. But I don't exactly remember where on the disk. Then: either the problem posed is really of a very simple nature or it is not, in the latter case a script being mandatory. One of the algorithm drawbacks (the one described above) is that find may be running a great deal of time. My machine resources (RAM and CPU speed are low) are scarce and there possible are a large number of HTML files on the disk.
I've configured my RHEL system to be used as tftp server. I've configured NFS,VSFTPD and DHCP too. Everything works fine, the clients are able to boot from PXE and get the kickstart information from the server and the installation completes successfully. Now the problem is the RHEL installation removes all the existing windows partitions. How do I make my system a dual boot? I've configured my kickstart to use "Remove existing Linux Partitions" and the problem still persists.
I need to know when I have bought a notebook. I know I have formatted disk myself and partition created and Ubuntu installed.Is there any way I can get info when I bought a notebook? Like time of disk formatting, partitions created, Ubuntu installed
Using Ubuntu 10.10 (installed via mythbuntu) I'm unable to read or see files/directories created under Ubuntu. I think it started happening after a reboot to Windows. Some of the directories created under Ubuntu have disappeared completely and some of them produce the following error: /media/storage/videos/Kids Videos$ ls ls: cannot access Justin Bieber: Input/output error ls: cannot access Octonauts: Input/output error rest of directory is seen fine...
Same on some files: ls -l ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.mp4: Input/output error ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.nfo: Input/output error ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.srt: Input/output error ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.tbn: Input/output error ls: cannot access Human Planet: Input/output error ls: cannot access Russell Howard's Good News: Input/output error ls: cannot access The Planets: Input/output error ls: cannot access Lost Land of the Tiger: Input/output error total 300160 .....
Just to make it worse I copied more data onto the disk from windows so may have lost some it completely. It there anyway I can repair this? When trying to check under Windows it says it can't. Some of the missing files can be reloaded but others can't. Ran chkdsk /f under Windows XP. Some files have reappeared, but there has been a lot of unrecoverable files lost. Conclusion: Ubuntu 10.10 is badly broken for writing to NTFS. As I would like to share between Windows & Ubuntu using the external disk, I'm not sure what to do at this stage.
My DVD drive has gone bad and with new Fedora 14 just launched I decided to install the same through the usb flash disk.
First I used dd: dd if=/home/prabhat/Download/Fedora-14-i386.iso of=/dev/sdb
It went on nicely and copied the iso nicely. But I could not boot with it.
Second time I tried livecd-tools: livecd-iso-to-disk /home/prabhat/Download/Fedora-14-i386.iso /dev/sdb1
It went on nicely, and finally declared something like - usb disk is not live .... But here again when I tried to boot it says MISSING OS. I checked the contents of the flash disk. It contained raw DVD iso image, one images directory, one syslinux directory. I checked the contents of the images directory, and I found it had the install.img. And yes, the /dev/sdb1 is bootable.
i configured ftp in my server.i just want to access the web page created in server through ftp.ya i can able to access. but the problem is ,it,s showing all the files and folders of the server like Desktop,Documents etc.....
But its just need to show only the site files such as index.html and its sub folders.
i think the problem is because of logging in to the server through ftp as normal user,which is created in server. so i think if we login as ftp user we can able to access only the website files.
