Red Hat / Fedora :: Reformatting External Drive - Error "drive Doesn't Show Up At All Via Df -k"

Apr 15, 2011

I need to re-format an external drive. All the instructions I have found start with figuring out where the drive is mounted (sda, hda, etc.). However, as soon as my RH Linux machine sees the drive's format (ntfs) it decides it won't even mount it in the first place. Gives me an error message. Also, the drive doesn't show up at all via "df -k". how to convince RHL to be a little more accepting?

Ubuntu :: DVD Drive Is Not Recognised - Doesn't Show Up In The File Manager

Feb 21, 2011

A little while ago I installed lubuntu 10.04 on a partition on my (somewhat) old sony vaio desktop. It's great, I do love it - only problem is that the DVD drive is not recognised - at least it doesn't show up in the file manager, and isn't listed when I do "ls -l /media".

Hardware :: SATA Drive In USB JBOD Enclosure Doesn't Show Up In /dev?

Jan 12, 2011

I put together a NAS-like device using a 2-slot USB JBOD enclosure and an eBox-3300. I'm using Ubuntu Server 8.04 Hardy as an OS for the eBox. I have two WD EARS drives hat I intend to use in the USB enclosure, one 1TB large, the other 2TB. I managed to install Hardy on the 1TB drive and boot from it. The 2TB drive is preformatted XFS. If I add the 2TB drive in the enclosure, it does not show up in /dev in ubuntu. In the device's BIOS, both drives appear just fine with correct IDs, so I'm guessing the problem is with ubuntu.

P.S. dmesg report regarding usb:

Code:

[ 6.436689] usbcore: registered new interface driver usbfs
[ 6.436872] usbcore: registered new interface driver hub
[ 6.437094] usbcore: registered new device driver usb

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive - GParted Wont Load Up When Plugged In And Disk Utility Doesn't Show It

Feb 7, 2011

I had this corrupted external hdd and so I formatted the main partition on it on windows but messed up in the formatting and ended up having to format the entire thing. I got some weird message about it not being initialized (no not mounted) so I was in compmgmt.msc in windows and right clicked it in device manager and it asked for master boot or GUID I selected the latter and formatted. Worked fine and all for a bit but now it doesn't show up as a drive. I noticed when using compmgmt.msc it showed up that it had installed driver software and was being recognized but in the partition editing area there was nothing on this drive, reinstalling driver software doesn't seem to help. Also GParted wont load up when I have it plugged in and Disk Utility doesn't show it. I am requesting help to fix this problem within Ubuntu 10.10 somehow so I can use it properly.

General :: 64-bit Doesn't Show 4GB RAM

Jun 4, 2011

I'm using a 64-bit release. But, my PC doesn't seem to show the full 4GB of RAM that is installed. It shows about 3.4 to 3.6GB of RAM (please see attached picture).I thought that if I could install a 64-bit OS that would mean that I have a 64-bit capable processor. I thought using a 64-bit release would show all 4GB or RAM on my PC. What am I doing wrong? My CPU is a Pentium 4 Prescott DT 630.

More information on my system is below:

Code:

$ lsb_release -rd
Description:Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.1 (squeeze)
Release:6.0.1

General :: Doesn't Show The File That Exists?

Sep 10, 2009

we have installed vignette software on the linux box and would like to uninstall it. To uninstall it we need to delete one file named vpd.properties. When we used locate vpd.properties, the file is found in 2 places. But when we used the ls -a in those locations the file is not seen. basically we want to remove that file. If we do rm vpd.properties, this also doesn't work. Also when we used find -H vpd.properties the file is not found. What is wrong here. I am sure the file vpd.properties will be added to file system as part of vignette. Can anyone suggest what could be wrong here.We logged in as root user to remove this file. Installation is done twice using root and vignette user ids. Thats why file is located in 2 places.

General :: CentOS 5.5 - External DVD Drive Does Not Show Up

Dec 5, 2010

Installed CentOS 5.5 some time ago and I can proudly say I am more than satisfied with it. Managed to install codecs, flash player, media players, chrome and opera browsers and all other things I need. My only problem is that as of about a week ago my external DVD player is not recognized any more by CentOS so I am unable to watch movies. My external DVD player is Magnavox and it works great but CentOS does not recognize it any more. I used to watch movies in CentOS in SMPlayer all the time. What to do to get it back?

General :: Main Menu Doesn't Show My App Launcher (desktop File) / Why Is So?

Aug 6, 2010

I've just started out learning to program and I'm making a "Radio Scheduler" for my brother as a mini project. I wanted to make an "install" script, which would add an item to Ubuntu's Main Menu. I believe all that is necessary is to create a .desktop file and place it it /usr/share/applications/? This seemed to work fine when I tried it out on 10.10, but I've now tried it on two 10.04 systems (one virtual) and despite it being in the applications folder (so it moved in okay), it isn't showing up at all in the menu. code...

I'm not entirely sure about some of that (categories for instance), as I just used another file as a reference. But it seemed to work fine on my 10.10 system, so I don't understand why it won't show up on the others? Should be in Sound & Video if I'm correct... I'm still pretty new to Linux, so sorry if I've got anything completely wrong.

-- when i use fdisk to create a new partition; its hard to tell how much free space is available.
-- tried searching the net but found no answers. some suggested using cfdisk.
-- i don't have cfdisk installed on the centos 5.3 server. i don't think its bundled in the distro any more.

Ubuntu :: Raid 5 Rebuilt At Instal Lose Data?

Apr 17, 2011

I have 6 drives in raid 5 for data. 2 drives in raid 1 for boot. During install I set my 2 drives as raid 1 and had them formatted. I also told it the 6 drives were raid 5 but did not tell it anything else besides not to format them. When I booted for the first time I found that it was rebuilding the raid 5 and the file system type is unknown.

General :: Windows 7 Disk Management Utility Doesn't Show Disk With Ext3 Partition

Oct 10, 2010

I have a 2 TB disk in an external SATA dock, formatted with a single ext3 (Linux) partition, which doesn't show up in the Windows 7 Computer Management->Disk Management utility, even as a raw/blank disk. I've verified that there's nothing wrong with the disk by connecting it to my Linux machine and mounting it, and I've verified that the dock is functioning properly by connecting a different FAT32-formatted disk, which mounts flawlessly as expected.I realize that I can't actually read the ext3 partition without additional software (e.g., Ext3IFS), but why doesn't the disk show up at all? Is there some sort of stupid anti-Linux filter built in? Is there any way to force Windows to recognize the disk, so that I can at the very least use direct block access with it?

Background: I want to clone an identical 2 TB disk onto this one. Due to my hardware layout, it's much easier to have the source disk attached to one machine and the destination disk connected to another, and do the clone over the network (the network is not a bottleneck with switched gigabit ethernet), than it is to hook them both up to one machine.(1) I did this once before when both machines were running Linux, but I've since upgraded the destination machine and decided to switch back to Windows for regular desktop use. I've got Cygwin installed, and have verified that the same basic method (dd + nc) will work, but I can't do anything if Windows doesn't even consider the destination disk to exist.I only have one eSATA port on each machine. Opening them up just to do this clone is a rather large annoyance. Also, since this is my backup disk, I'd like to eventually automate the cloning from the active disk to another one that I regularly swap with a third disk that I store off-site.

Software :: Rebuilt RAID Array With Old Mount Points Present - File System Check Fails On Boot

Dec 2, 2009

I have one hard disk for my root partition and a disk array on a separate mount point. I rebuilt my disk array, but I didn't delete my original mount points beforehand because I was hoping it would just "pick up". So now when I boot up, the OS tells me that the filesytem check fails because it can't find the array to map to the mount point. I know that I need to edit my /etc/fstab and remove the line that defines my mount point on the disk array. But it appears to be read only filesystem when I am in repair mode. I can't force the write with vi.

General :: CD Drive Doesn't Recognize CD's Anymore

Jan 29, 2010

how to get linux onto an old laptop (dell inspiron 2600, 1GHZ, 120MB RAM). the cd drive doesn't recognize CD's anymore and in boot menu, "Setup Utility" the usb drives aren't recognized. the usb drive or pen drive boots in another desktop just fine. i need to somehow install xubuntu or crunchbang or something lite but must do it using net install. i see lots of tutorials but they are either too complicated or unknown source, like "inslux." and not too complicated of a process. I'm a "techie-tard," i guess. also, i'd like to suggest a new "sub-forum" in "distribution" forum, Called "General Distro."

General :: Doesn't Detect External USB Hard Drive

Aug 4, 2010

In Ubuntu 10.04 all I had to do was turn on my external hard drive and it would automatically be detected and mounted. I just switched over to Ultimate Edition, which I think is Ubuntu 10.04 with a lot of stuff added on to it. The funny thing is when I turn on the external hard drive it doesn't get mounted, and I don't think it's even being detected. I looked in gparted and it doesn't show up there. If I boot into Ubuntu 10.04 and turn on the hard drive it still gets detected and mounted, so there's nothing wrong with it. Ultimate Edition can detect other things connected to USB, like my iPod, so I'm wondering why it can't detect my hard drive.

Edit: When I do tail -f /var/log/messages and if the drive gets detected, this is what it says:

[ 230.520892] usb 1-2.4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 6
[ 230.639400] usb 1-2.4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

General :: Windows 7 X64 Doesn't Boot If A Drive Is Plugged?

Jun 2, 2011

I have connected (sata cable I mean) the drive where I have got my Ubuntu installation to another pc with windows 7 64 bits (but I think that 32 and 64 doesn't make difference). Windows 7 doesn't boot. So I thought it may be some kind of issue with the hard drive itself (but the drive is healthy), anyway I have plugged one drive from one NAS (you know, NAS drives are linux partitioned and formatted).Same result: windows 7 doesn't boot.

Windows 7 boot sequence hangs and at the next boot prompts
"Repair windows installation"
"Boot windows normally"
(and obviously none of the options works)

Looks really like that Windows 7 doesn't boot if any linux partitioned and formatted drive is present.

General :: Windows - Cdrom Drive Doesn't Work On Laptop?

Dec 21, 2010

I bought a new CDROM drive, as recommended by HP. It still doesn't work. I can open and close it now; so that's changed. But it still doesn't appear as a drive, and I can't use it.

Here's as best as I can describe it:

When starting up, the boot order doesn't recognize the cdrom drive, but I can open and close the drive during this time.

In Windows 7, I can't open the cdrom drive, and it doesn't recognize it in device manager, disk management, or my computer.

In Ubuntu Linux, I can open the cdrom drive, but it still doesn't recognize the cds, and it won't mount.

If I reformat everything, would my cdrom drive work again? Can I reinstall Windows without a cdrom drive? I've deleted the upper and lower filters as was suggested in Google searches. Took the disk drive out and checked that it was installed correctly (no reason it shouldn't have been). Still: nothing works.

General :: Evolution Does Not Show Content Of Inbox Or Sent But Does Show Other Folders

Apr 28, 2011

I configured it to use IMAP to access our exchange 2010 server front end on a LAN connection. Our webmail connection is segregated behind Forefront, so it was not connecting/authing that way. Even though smartphones have no problem. (sidenote, is there an activesync linux mail client ?)

I have many root folders and several folders underneath my inbox. total mailsize in inbox is 3.5 GB without subfolders. The sent is likewise as large. And is likewise empty.

Things I checked already:
View is all
Folder subscription is on and local copy is on

More info:
Thunderbird worky fine.
But thunderbird is missing calender
Tried adding lightening, but it won't add into thunderbird.
Will try finding a diff add on, or if anyone knows how to get lightening into thunderbird 3.1.8 on ubuntu 10 that would be great as well.
