General :: Mounting USB Drive At Boot - Debian

Mar 6, 2011

I need to mount a USB drive at boot up. I tried this entry in fstab:

Code:
LABEL=/Root-FS /Root-FS auto defaults,auto,user 1 0
But that did not do it. If I do a 'mount -a', that works.

This is for an embedded Debian system.

Fedora :: Mounting 2nd Drive At Boot?

Jul 30, 2010

I've got a semi-retired hdd (with a few bad sectors my disk utility tells me) formatted in ext4 that can be mounted onto the Desktop after boot provided root password is offered first. I thought it would be straight forward to mount it at boot with something in etc/fstab like :

Code:

/dev/sdb /home/Jo/Desktop ext4
But this doesn't work, is there a glaring error here ?

Various threads suggest permission restrictions could be the cause but i have had no success with them

Ubuntu :: Optical Drive Not Mounting After Boot

Jun 8, 2010

So if I boot without a DVD or CD in my optical drive, then I attempt to put one it, it doesn't mount. I try mounting with the terminal and that fails as well. If I boot with the media in the optical drive, it works fine. (this problem occurs both on my desktop and laptop and I know the DVD and CD's work in both 9.10 and in windows, This error also occurs with Linux Mint and Sabayon leading me to believe this is a kernel issue).

[Code]...

What do I need to do to get this to work like it should? I have been asking about this since the beta of 10.04

Ubuntu :: Hard Drive Mounting During Boot?

Nov 4, 2010

Running 10.10 64bit Kernel 2.6.35-23 I am noticing what I think is a big hiccup in my boot process my drive is mounting at around the 4sec mark then my system pauses for roughly 13 seconds, you can even it see it on the screen a blinking cursor comes up the entire time. Then during the rest of the boot my drive will re-mount at least 4 more times. Then during use of my system there will be random re-mounts throughout the use. Here is the mounting message

[Code]...

I just noticed the pausing recently after an update but have been seeing this re-mounting since install. Are these normal? They dont seem like it to me, and if they are normal why such a long time on the initial mount and every re-mount takes 4-5 seconds. Let me know if I can provide any further info as well.

Ubuntu :: Second Hard Drive Not Mounting At Boot / What To Fix It?

Jun 1, 2011

I just installed a second hard drive in my desktop. It shows in the BIOS.

I followed the procedure here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...gANewHardDrive to install it in Ubuntu, except I formatted the drive to ext4 not ext3.

It mounts automatically without problem once I am in Ubuntu and I can read/write to it.

My issue is that it won't mount at boot. I get past GRUB and a few seconds later receive an error message giving me an option 'S' to skip, or 'M' to manually mount.

What I noticed is that the logical name for the drive (used sudo lshw -C disk to display) seems to change at each boot.

It goes from /dev/sdb to /dev/sdf and vice versa.

So, I'm thinking this is the problem since I can only add it to /etc/fstab according to what I last saw.

Networking :: Mounting XP Network Drive On Machine Works Manually But Not On Boot Up?

Dec 13, 2008

I know this has been covered in many threads before, but I'm stuck not finding my exact situation or an answer. I'm a newbie using a Debian Linux machine as the client and Windows XP machine as the server. I have successfully mounted the XP Network drive on the Linux machine using commands from the root terminal:

mount -t smbfs -o username="Windows Username",password=windowspassword //XPcomputername/folder /mountpoint/

However when I put the command in the ect/fstab file as suggested in several posts, I don't get any result on boot up. I.e. I can't get the network drive to mount on start up, I always have to manually mount it from the root terminal.

Server :: Mounting And Backingup Files To A Usb Drive In Debian?

Jun 15, 2011

I have a question?! have a linux server which was administered by my good friend who has passed away and I have been asked to take over. the server has debian installed (installed oct 2008 and would have been the latest version) and I am looking to backup the smb shares to a external usb disc. I have formatted and mounted the disc and found a script he wrote to automate the backup run from a cron tab. Looking through the script the mount commands dont look quite right to me particulary as the owner will swap drives every day. everything else appears to be working fine! the command to mount in the script is'

mount /mnt/usb
and unmount;
unmount /mnt/usb
I think it should be' mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb
and to unmount . umount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/usb

am I talking nonsense here or I on the right track?

Debian Hardware :: External Hard Drive Not Registering / Mounting

May 22, 2014

My external hard drive (about 2 years old) won't mount. It wouldn't mount on Windows either. Other external hard drives (sdb1) mount perfectly.

I am wondering is there a Linux way of getting the hard drive to work again? The disc spins up so it's not a mechanical failure. I'm guessing here but is there a way of flashing firmware onto the external HD if that might be the problem?

(Seagate 2TB ST320005EXD101-RK)

Code: Select all# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
# / was on /dev/sda2 during installation

General :: Dvd Drive Keep Mounting Incorrectly / Fix This?

Nov 27, 2010

Running Slackware 13.1

Whenever I insert a dvd or a cd, it automatically mounts to /media/[name], Like for example, the DVD I have in now mounts to /media/TBC3.2.0 (TBC3.2.0 is the name of the disc itself).

I'm needing this to mount to a regular point like /media/cdrom0 or whatever. How can I fix this?

General :: Mounting Drive At Startup

Oct 8, 2010

I had windows vista on one partition, xp on another documents on another and programs on another.When I installed ubuntu on a new partition it very kindly let me see all the other partitions and mount them as necessary. I would like all my ubuntu files, documents music downloads to go right on to the documents partition so when I back up that drive to an external I have it backs up the documents drive it has all the files I have created in vista or ubuntu. Eventually I want to leave windows completely but I would still want to store all the ubuntu files on the documents drive.

I can go to "places" and mount the documents drive but what I would like to do is when I fire up ubuntu that the documents drive mounts automatically.

General :: Mounting The Hard Drive From Unetbootin?

Jul 29, 2010

I recently installed Damn Small Linux using unetbootin. Booting Linux from unetbootin seems a lot like booting from a liveCD, so I'd like to mount my hard drive and see what I can do. Unfortunately it looks like Damn Small Linux has not mounted it automatically, and I'm having trouble finding my drive and mounting it from the /dev directory. There are several devices named /dev/*da* and I don't know which is my hard drive. My computer is an HP Mini netbook, so the drive is probably one of the new "solid state" drives if that affects anything.What can I do to find and mount my hard drive from unetbootin?

General :: Error Mounting Usb Floppy Drive?

General :: Mounting Hard Drive In Knoppix ?

May 29, 2011

I have been running a computer under Windows XP for years, and recently it stopped booting unexpectedly. It tries to load windows, but partway though loading a BSOD flashes and it shuts down. To remedy this and hopefully fix this, my frined lent me some Knoppix CDs that I could boot from. He also lent me some external hard drives. I want to be able to access my files on my old hard drive.

Here's the problem: (in Knoppix 6) When I try to mount my main partition of my hard drive, which shows as sda2 (sda1 is an old recovery partition left over from when I ran vista), the following message pops up: "A job is pending on dev/sda2" A little later another error window pops up: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." I want to be able to mount my hard drive in Knoppix 6.

General :: Mounting A Drive That Isn't Yet Connected On The Network

Jul 16, 2011

I have an external Samba network storage drive that I mount using 'mount -t cifs -o username=aaa,password=aaa //myserver /mnt/mountlocation', but I'm finding it to be a pain to enter that whole command every time I turn on that drive and connect it to my computer via the network. I could put that command in a script and run a simple script like 'mntdrive' that would run that command for me, but is there a way to have the drive 'pre-mounted' so that if it's available on the network it's mounted?

If I put the mount command in one of the startup scripts or in fstab, would it be available at the mount location when the drive is connected if it wasn't connected when the computer was first turned on? Or is mounting the drive manually, even if by running a script that does it for me, something I'll have to do every time I turn on that drive? Any creative ways around this? Would make things easier if it is possible.

General :: Automatically Set Write Permissions On Mounting A Usb Drive?

Aug 15, 2010

When I mount an external usb drive on linux (CentOs4), the permissions are by default set to read-only. Since there are multiple users on the computer who need to use the external drive, I want everybody to have rw permission for the entire drive. I also want them to be able to mount the drive if the computer has accidentially been shut down. They can use sudo mount to mount the drive, but this will only give them read permission, and I obviously don't want to allow sudo chmod.

Is there a default setting that I can change so that every new external usb disk automatically gets rw permissions?

General :: Mounting External NTFS Drive With Different Driver

Feb 15, 2011

I have an Ubuntu 10.04 box that accesses NTFS drives along with ext4. Recently, I switched from ntfs-3g to Paragon NTFS driver, which is proprietary, but free of charge. It feels quite faster on my internal drives. Now I have a problem with external eSATA NTFS drive. When it is detected, I mount it via Nautilus GUI, but it gets mounted with the ntfs-3g driver. (It can be mounted via command line with the Paragon driver, but this is less convenient. How can I configure my system (is it Gnome or some system-wide configuration ?) to mount all NTFS drives with the Paragon driver?

General :: Mounting Fedora Machine Drive Via USB Connection

Code:
[root@dd ~]# mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/drive
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

General :: Mounting Windows Drive Automatically In Ubuntu?

Mar 16, 2011

I have dual boot on my laptop. First OS is Windows XP and second is Ubuntu 10.10.

When I click on places menu in Ubuntu, I can access Windowz XP Drives.

If I access some pdf file or document while in Ubuntu which is in Windows XP Drive, then it will come in Recent Document in Places menu.

Now I restart Ubuntu and click on Recent Documents and click on the document which I accessed in last session ( before restart ).

It says Unable to Open Document.

Then I click Places again and access my Windows XP drive. Then again I click Recent Document and click on document, I am able to open the document.

My guess is this happens because my windows drives are not mounted automatically when I start Ubuntu. How can I mount Windows drive automatically when I start Ubuntu.

Software :: How To Cancel Swap Mounting At Boot In Debian Initrd

Oct 9, 2010

When I installed Debian stable on a headless machine of mine, I configured a partition with LUKS encryption (intended for swap), but told the installer not to use it. After installation, I configured that encrypted partition as swap and mounted it. I wanted my headless machine to boot all the way without manual intervention, so I can log in via ssh and mount my encrypted partitions.However, since the kernel was updated (and the initrd regenerated), the machine now waits during boot for me to enter the swap encryption password, but no others, only the swap.I have been unable to find in my searchings how the initrd is generated with that setting or how I can change it, preferably permanently so future regenerated initrd's don't try activating my encrypted swap on boot. Does anyone know how to configure a Debian style initrd generator to generate an initrd that will not try to activate swap?
