General :: Fdisk / Change The Disk Label Of /dev/sda5 To /dev/sda6?

Mar 26, 2010

I have used fdisk to create two new partition.

Before this partition, I had 6 partition of which /dev/sda6 was the boot partition. I deleted /dev/sda5 partition and hence the earleir /dev/sda6 became /dev/sda5. Now I created two new partitions /dev/sda6 and /dev/sda7.

Due to this change in device label of /dev/sda6 I am not able to boot my computer.

Is there any method to change the disk label of /dev/sda5 to /dev/sda6 ?????

General :: Fdisk Change Patition System Id _after_ Mkfs.ext3 OK?

Jul 20, 2010

I've a new external usb drive that was shipped formatted fat32. I wanted to convert this to ext3; so I performed a mkfs.ext3. I then noticed that fdisk was still reporting the usb drive as fat32 (even after reboot), but mount was reporting ext3: so I fdisk'ed the drive and change the partition's system id to 83 (Linux)

OpenSUSE Install :: Error: Operand Expected /dve/disk/by-label//

Apr 28, 2011

I just installed OS 11.4 this morning. Was previously on CentOS. I chose to have it import the partition & raid setup during install. Now when it boots it hangs with

"Could not find /dev/disk/by-label //" "Want me to fall back to /dev/disk/by_id/ata-ST(lots of drive stuff) -part2 (Y/n)" If I just hit ENTER at that point the boot will go on and it runs fine, but it stalls every time with that same error on boot. I did quite a bit of searching with Google and here (the search here considers every word in the error message to be too short or too common).

I want to use Gparted to extra space to /dev/sda5/. Using a live CD I shrunk /dev/sda7 and I have 9.77 Gb of free space.

However I can not increase the size of /dev/sda5 - I can only shrink it.

Do I need to reboot and then try?

Hardware :: SSD - Failure Occurred When Setting Disk Label Of /dev/sda To MSDOS (-1013)

Apr 7, 2011

I tried was to install OpenSUSE 11.4. The disk is recognised, I select partitioning (1 swap partition, the rest ext4), choose my software etc and hit go. Immediately, I assume at this point the installer is formatting the disk, I get an error saying: Failure occurred during the following action: Setting disk label of /dev/sda to MSDOS (-1013).I can hit ignore, retry or abort. Ignoring triggers the same error again, about 4 or 5 times, before the installer seemingly proceeds and tries to install the software. At this point I get a different error saying that the disk space is exhausted, and I can only abort the installation.

Next I boot up a live distro from a USB stick and try to create the partitions there. This seems to work just fine, so I try the OpenSUSE installation again. I notice that the installer says there are no partitions on the disk. Weird. If I click the button in the partitioning tool to refresh the list of disks/partitions, the disk disappears, but it's there if I restart the installer. The installation doesn't get any further than before though.

The next thing I do is to try an Ubuntu installation instead. Surprisingly, the partitions are created just fine, and the installation actually succeeds. However, when I reboot the machine to boot from the new disk, a few seconds after GRUB, I get the following output: ata1.00 exception mask 0x0 SAct 0x0 SErr 0x0 action 0x6 frozen ata1.00 failed command FLUSH CACHE ata1.00 cmd e7:00:00:00:00:00/00:00:00:00:00:00/a0 tag 0

Ubuntu :: Change Label On A Windows Drive?

Nov 5, 2010

This isn't important but it's always been an itch I can't figure out. I have 3 partitions on my laptop: Ubuntu, OSx86 and Windows 7. I use Pysdm Storage Device Manager to automount them on start-up.

My OSx86 partition is labelled "OS X" and displays as such on all three systems. My Windows partition displays as "80GB File System" (as it's meant to).

I was just wondering whether or not it was possible to change how it displays on Ubuntu safely, to something more aesthetically pleasing such as "Win7".

Debian :: Disk Setup - Df And Fdisk Reports Different

Dec 9, 2010

Iīm pretty new to linux and debian and I have a problem with my disk setup. I have a rocketRAID hardware card installed for RAID setup. In addition I have a separate HDD for linux and use the RAID-setup for server purposes. Now, when I boot the system, grub boots /dev/sda1. This does not work and I have to change to /dev/sdb1 for it to find the system files. (although sometimes it works, but in these cases the system does not find the RAID-disks. Thatīs for another time thou).

The strange thing about this, to me in any case, is that "fdisk" reports correctly, with sda and sdb but "df" reports all disks as sda and none as sdb. It also misses a partition of the RAID-disks which fdisk reports. hereīs a screengrab from "fdisk -l" and "df -h"

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Root Ext4 FS Corrupted On SDA6

Jun 2, 2010

I was unable to boot into my system after I'd just shut it down, so I tried repairing it using my installation media... only to find that though my root Ext4 fs on sda6 was corrupted & *supposedly* repairable, the cd could not do so for some reason! All I can get is a command line, saying something about the root fs being mounted as read only, and I have no idea how to resolve this. I cannot afford to loose ANY of the data I have on here.

General :: Ubuntu - Change Swap Disk Priority Permanently?

Aug 8, 2010

I'm using two swap disks. Changing the order they are in in /etc/fstab and using "pri" in fstab doesn't have any effect. This is what it looks like /etc/fstab

#swap on other disk
UUID=90a1550c-84d6-4bde-8bc1-7c15292980f1 none swap sw,pri=-1 0 0
#swap on same disk
UUID=13b70e65-f1c3-4728-920f-9e92467d1df0 none swap sw,pri=-2 0 0


Its opposite of what it is in fstab, and changes to fstab have no effect.

General :: Label And Format USB Drive?

I have a USB thumb drive that I just partitioned using the 'fdisk' utility in Linux. Now I am trying to learn the command that will allow me to format the drive as 'fat32' while also setting the disk label on the device as "ocz_usb" when the drive gets mounted. Does anyone know the command I would use that will format the USB drive and properly set the disk label at the same time?

General :: Creating New Partition And Label ?

Mar 11, 2010

I am a newbie to Linux and I am using CentOs. I am trying to create a new partion on my CentOs VM. I create a new primary partition using fdisk (I use the command fdisk /dev/hda). After I create the partition and use partprobe to write the partition to disk, I try to give the new partition a label. So, I use the command e2label /dev/hda LABEL=test

However, when I enter the command e2label /dev/hda3 , it doesn't display the label for the newly created partition. Am I doing something wrong here? Is the syntax of the e2label command wrong when creating the label for the new partition? Did I miss a step after writing the new partition to disk.
