General :: HFS Partition Mounting Read-only

Jul 9, 2010

I have an external Western Digital Hard drive with two HFS partitions with journaling disabled.When I connect it to a computer running Linux (Debian or Ubuntu), frequently both partitions are mounted read-only. In the past, mounting them on my Macbook and executing the command to disable the journaling often worked (even though it would tell me that journaling was already disabled) but I would love to have a solution which works every time.

General :: Why Ntfs Partition Need That Window Xp Shut Down Properly

May 9, 2009

I just wounder why a ntfs partition need that my window xp shut down properly before i can mount it on my new Debian install.What happen it that when scanning window xp for virus i got a blue screen and window just crash repeatedly , so i tough i could just mount that partition with ntfs-3g, find the virus witch i identify to be in c:/window and delete it, but my ntfs partition would not mount and the boot message said something like (ntfs partition is still in use). Long story short, i finally managed to get a full window xp boot followed by a clean shut down, then my ntfs partition mounted and i was able to delete that virus.I could mount that partition with ntfs ro option in fstab, but not with ntfs-3g rw until i got a clean xp shutdown.

General :: Mounting A Partition As Music Folder In Ubuntu 10.4

Sep 6, 2010

I have installed a new hard drive and partitioned some space that I am wanting to use for keeping my Music files on. I have entered a line into the /etc/fstab file that I believe mounts the partition properly, but it is giving root owner ship of the partition. Is there a better way of doing this? perhaps mounting the drive some where else and using a hard link? the line I have so far in my fstab is

/dev/sdb1 /home/me/Music ext4 defaults,user 0 2

But this is still sowing the drive on my desktop, it also replaces the the name of Music in my places with the fact that it is a drive of such a size.

General :: Mounting A Multi-partition Disk Image?

Nov 16, 2010

I downloaded an raw SD card image that has two partitions. It caused some file system errors when I tried to dd it directly into an SD card. I am not sure if the card is defective or the image. Is there a way to examine this image without writing it to a physical card? Like trying to mount the partitions separately or checking the tables?

General :: Saving Home Partition / Mounting Error?

Dec 26, 2009

i decided to try archlinux in my pc a while ago so i installed it... after three months i started to miss slackware so i decided to reinstall it but i wanted to save my /home partition so when i installed slackware i left my /home partition from arch hoping that i could just mount it on slackware...but now when i try to mount that /home partition this is what i get:

bash-3.1# mount /dev/sda4
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda4,missing codepage or helper program,or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so
code....

So i dont really know what is going on here but i hope somebody could help me because i really NEED to get the data from that partition.

oh and by the way i installed slackware on ext4 partitions and the /home partition from arch is ext3 so i dont know if that's maybe the problem o_O?

General :: Auto-mounting An Ecryptfs Partition Which Is On A Usb Drive?

May 30, 2010

I have an ecryptfs partition on a usb drive, system runs Debian squeezeWhat I'd like to have is that when I connect the drive it will be auto. mounted and I'lleither have to enter the passphrase or it will already be in the keyring (even better).It seems ecryptfs can auto-mount a directory but I want to auto-mount an entire encryptd partition. Is this possible?.Also, can I have another encrypted directory, say ~/Private, at the same time or can ecryptfs handle only one at a time?

General :: Mounting Ext2 Partition With Write Permissions?

Oct 25, 2009

I need to mount my ext2 partition with write permissions for an average user. Right now, I can only write to the volume using sudo or the root account.

/etc/fstab:

Code:

# Filesystem: Mountpoint: Type: Options: Dump: FSCK:
/dev/sda1 / ext4 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0

[code]....

can't add the options uid=500,gid=500 to the ext2 volume because it says "bad option" I have 1 question. If you have a volume listed in /etc/fstab, and you try to mount it with different options than the ones listed in fstab, will it mount with the new options, or the fstab options?(e.x. if I try to mount /dev/sda6 with: mount-o auto,user,exec,rw,async. Will it mount with async or sync?)

General :: Mounting - Checking Or Reading Partition ( Probably A Physical Damage )?

Mar 21, 2010

I have a problem when trying mounting, checking my ext3 partition. Is a external HD with my "portable" Linux system. Suddenly started to fail, when I try to boot it, the GRUB can't locate the config file, and show me the command line. I boot from my internal HD and try to mount it and have this messages.

Code:
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI disk
sd 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg2 type 0
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Unhandled sense code
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE,SUGGEST_OK
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Sense Key : Medium Error [current]
sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Add. Sense: Unrecovered read error

[Code]...

1.- What exactly is in this first sectors (ext3 metadata?)

2.- Is there some way to fix this quickly, maybe with some "sectors relocation", Or re-create the first logical sectors.

3.- If not, who could i make a full backup (something like dd copy), of all the partition.

4.- How fix it?, even with a long prosses, i don't know, maybe backup the file structure (with forensic tools) and copy into a new (and re-located) partition. This is my last option because the forensic tools sometime can't recover all files and sometimes only parts, or very old files.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Can't Properly Partition Both Hard Drives - Simple Way To Create Partition On Drive?

Jun 22, 2011

I installed Redhat Enterprise 3 on one of my servers. In my haste I didn't properly partition both Hard Drives and only properly partitioned one of them. Thus now I have

/dev/sdb1 478711768 137858256 316536328 31% /
/dev/sda1 101089 15346 80524 17% /boot

Where /dev/sda1 is actually a 80 GB hard drive. Is there anyway I can safely and easily repartition the unpartitioned space without causing a huge mess? I have a very important Oracle database on /dev/sdb1 and thus I want to be able to back it up on the second disk. I can create a partition on that drive?

Ubuntu :: Mounting A Partition On A Partition Unstable?

Jan 19, 2011

I have come across the following statement: " When a FAT32 partition is mounted at '/media/windows', all access to '/media/windows' and everything below it is transparently handled by the Linux kernel using the 'vfat' module. Applications need not know they're dealing with anything else. However, mounting a partition at a location inside of another mounted partition is unpredictable, unstable, and generally a bad idea. "

Is it correct? Most of my partitions are mounted on /home, which is on a separate partition; and I have one "level 3" partition. I have been using Ubuntu for nearly three years so far with no problems (except for /home losing it's format once).

Fedora :: Mounting Partition Upon Startup

Mar 31, 2010

I've migrated back to Fedora as I am just displeased with the majority of debian based distros and Sabayon at the moment. Fedora has grown up quite a bit since FC9 and I'm here to stay. I keep all of my media and documents on a seperate partition on my disk and am wondering how I can have it set to automatically mount it upon startup. It gets kind of annoying having to re-enter my password every reboot just to mount the partition that 90% of my time is spent on.

Fedora :: F15 - Swap Partition Not Mounting?

May 31, 2011

I have the swap partition configured normally in fstab but it doesn't automount when I boot up. Not only that but I can't manually mount it either (ie with 'swapon -a', 'swapon -L /dev/sda7' etc). When I try I get this error -

Code:

[spoovy@kermitfed ~]$ sudo swapon -a
swapon: /dev/sda7: read swap header failed: Invalid argument
fstab -

Code:

/dev/sda7 swap swap defaults 0 0

The swap partition is used by another installation (Ubuntu dual-boot), which mounts it fine each boot.

Ubuntu :: Mounting HDD Image Of LVM Partition

Mar 13, 2010

I have a dedicated server that Ubuntu 9.04 operating system has been installed on it. Before this dedicated server, I had another server that according to some reasons, it was put aside and I requested my datacenter support team to attach previous server's HDD to my new server in order to transfer its information to the new server's HDD. On the disks of previous HDD, Ubuntu 8.04 LTS OS had been installed and most of its capacity was full, but while I mounted that HDD on the new server, the contents of the primary partition were visible but the contents of the extended partition weren't visible. After some inspectings, I observerd that the extended partition type is converted to LVM. Before this, I didn't deal with this kind of partition. I tried to mount this partition but I failed. I read many articles about this problem and implemented instructions on the HDD but the LVM partition was never mounted that returns many different errors and even I pursued the reasons of this errors but non of these remedies didn't solve this problem. Since the datacenter had determined a specifies time for transfering information. then I had to return the SCSI HDD on the specified time, so I was forced to make an image of the hard disk by "TestDisk" software. I've made that image from the LVM partition which its capacity amounts to 150 GB but still I'm not able to mount the image according to instructions on the different related websitres. Since I'm really dummy in Linux Fle System field, I request you to help me to mount this image or extract its contents.

Ubuntu :: U11.04 Not Mounting My Swap Partition / Fix It?

May 11, 2011

Ubuntu has been complaining about swap not being ready during boot. The swap partition was showing up un-known in gparted. I booted off CD, reformatted it to swap. Error message gone but system monitor > resources shows my swap size to be 86GB (the exact size of my shared NTFS volume). gparted shows the swap partition as not 'swapped on'

I am running Ubuntu 11.04 along side Windows 7 (as well as my factory restore partition) and an NTFS shared partition.

My partition structure in order of location on disc. Screen shot below to help.
sda1-2 Windows 7
sda4, extended partition
--sda6 Ubuntu
--sda7 swap
--sda5 NTFS shared partition
sda3 Factory restore image

Debian :: Mounting Other Partition And Editing As Root?

Jan 22, 2011

I have Linux Mint (LMDE) on another partition and I guess I need to do some 'fixing' so I need to mount the partition. I can't, though, not by just clicking the partition (obviously?). I assume this is because I need root access to mount it.

how I can do this?:

1) CLI - mount via CLI by mounting at some point - for e.g., mine is /dev/sda3 so mount as ?

2) Use an 'editor' or file manager - such as Dolphin - how would I do this?

3) Use a Live CD/DVD - I think this way is unnecessary but it's a way, right?

Anything I missed? I guess gparted could mount it?

Which method would you use?

I think one could ssh into it but I'm not able to do that yet.

I need to exit the xorg.conf file which is recently really messed up.
