Fedora :: CDs No Longer Mounting, But DVDs OK?

Jul 31, 2011

I tried mounting a new CD, but nothing happened. I tried again, with a CD I'd used before with the same results. I tried a DVD in the same drive and it mounted OK, so it's not hardware. (I haven't had time until now to report this.) The box is running F 14 and is fully updated. Below is the results from /var/log/messages saved from June 28:

Jul 28 14:07:21 khorlia kernel: [3792447.281593] sr 1:0:0:0: [sr0] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Playback Commercial DVDs On External DVD (Wrong Region/mounting ?

Jan 19, 2011

Having issues getting my external dvd drive to play nice with 10.10. The usual horses have been beaten thoroughly.

1.) I've installed Medibuntu

2.) I've grabbed libdvdcss2, libdvdread, run the install script, etc., etc.

3.) I've attempted to check the region, with no avail.

When I try a regionset, it offers the following complaint:

ERROR: Could not open disc "(null)"! Please ensure there is a readable CD or DVD in the drive.

4.) The drive and disc(s) are all operational, as they work on different partitions and/or machines fine.

VLC/Totem will, briefly, open the menu for a given DVD. The menu video will briefly play, sputter, then die, which sounds like a region issue.

Any idea why the regionset isn't working? Perhaps it's not mounting right?

Hardware :: Mounting A Drive To A Specific /dev/sd?

Oct 17, 2010

I have several HDDs connected to my box. Is there a way to always get them to map to the same /dev/sda. For example HD1 is connected to SATA port1 on my motherboard HD2 is connected to SATA port2 on my motherboard all the way to HD5 connected to Sata port5 on the motherboard. I would like port1 to always map to /dev/sda port2 -> /dev/sdb port3 -> /dev/sdc etc until port5 -> /dev/sde as of right now every time I reboot I get different mappings like port1 -> /dev/sdc port2 -> /dev/sda next reboot I get different mappings again.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB - Ntfs - Drive Mountpoint

Feb 13, 2010

I've been able to properly mount my ntfs formatted USB drive with user RW privileges.

The only thing I can't figure out/find anywhere is how to make the drive mount to a specific mountpoint such as "ntfs-usb" instead of "disk" or "disk-1", etc.

I used Expert Partitioner thru YaST and selected "do not mount partition" under Mounting Options and used the info on Swerdna's site to get where I am now.

My system lists the drive as "/dev/sdd" and it's (only) partition as "/dev/sdd1" and currently mounts it at /media/disk.

Fedora :: Can't Start Because Last Mountpoint Time Is Wrong

Jan 25, 2011

I noticed today that my F13 date was one month out i.e October 30th instead of September 30th.Time was okay. I tried to adjust it manually but no success. Now if I try to start up I get to the first blue screeen but then it says something like "last mountpoint date was October 30th = now September 30th which is in the future" (not exact wording). Time zone is correct and not set to network time or UTC. I'm dual booting with WinXP and date and time is correct and Time Zone is correct. System time is correct. So now to get into F13 I have to manually set the system time to 30th October.Which is OK for the 1st reboot but reverts back to the correct date on the next reboot. WinXP boots ok.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mountpoint External Usb-drive Differs In KDE From LXDE?

Sep 23, 2010

Perhaps somebody knows this one:

When I mount my external usb-drive within KDE it's mounted on /media/disk.

When I mount my external usb-drive (yes, the same one) within LXDE it's mounted on /media/72F580136411D534.

Not a great deal, but when I use DirSyncPro to backup some stuff I have to make adjustments to my saved settings, e.g. change the target folders.

General :: Setting User Mountpoint Permissions In Fstab Without Uid / Umask

Jan 30, 2010

I'm struggling to understand an aspect of mounting and mountpoints with /etc/fstab. There is a large number of sites and threads that make recommendations using things like uid, gid, umask, and other options. These methods, however, which I've used, are file-system specific, useful only for filesystems such as (V)FAT and NTFS that allow them.My current situation is that I am mounting partition /dev/sdb5 in, let's call it /media/myMount. My goals:Mount this partition automatically upon boot using /etc/fstab...The partition should be fully accessible only to a specific user or group.What I've done is create the mount point in /media:

If user michapma were to carry out the mount, I believe it would work; however, I want the mount to happen automatically during boot. So, how can I achieve my user (or group) permission goals for this and any other such partitions using fstab?The manpage for mount has been helpful, but after reading many tutorials and forum threads, the only way I know how to do it is to have the user do the mounting or rely on the file-system specific options.

Server :: Oracle Database - Mountpoint Read And Writable After Reboot

Jan 7, 2010

We have a Dell PE6600 with a QLA2460 FC HBA in it. Server is running RedHat AS 4.7 (kernel 2.6.9-78), FC driver used is the file qlafc-linux-8.02.23-3-install.tar downloaded from the QLogic website. On this server is an Oracle database running ( Files for the Oracle database are located in mountpoint /u02. The SAN is an iQStor 2880. Since several weeks we suddenly have problems with the Oracle database after a reboot of the server. After a reboot the mountpoint /u02 is readable and writable (tested by creating, opening and removing files).

However, when we try to start the database we get an error which give you the idea that the database is corrupt. The Oracle error is quite a general error. After doing a lot of testing we found out that if we unmount /u02 and mount it again (using mount -a so it reads the /etc/fstab), the database can be started after all. So the database is not corrupt but for some weird reason we have to remount /u02 first before the Oracle database can use it. We don't know if it's a linux issue, fibre issue, san issue or an oracle issue.

The "xxxxx" can vary in lenght. I need to extract the "xxxxxx" from each file and add the numbers together to a total size over a week or a month. Is this possible? And I wish to only use bash. One way of doing stuff at a time my friends .

Ubuntu :: Allow A Specific User To Mount Or Remount A Specific Partition?

Jun 9, 2010

my system I want user1 and only user1 to be able to mount and unmount a specific partition, this partition contains backups and is usually mounted read only, needs to be temporarily mounted read/write by user1 while doing the backup.user1 is an unprivileged user. I've read that the user option will let any user mount the file-system (and only that user can then subsequently unmount it) and that the users option allows any user to mount or unmount the file-system.I also found this in mount's man pageQuote:The owner option is similar to the user option, with the restriction that the user must be the owner of the special file. This may be useful e.g. for /dev/fd if a login script makes the console user owner of this device. The group option is similar, with the restriction that the user must be member of the group of the special file.So it looks like I'd need a login script for that user to make the user owner of the device file (/dev/voiceserv/backup in this case)

Server :: Sendmail: Block Specific Sender To Specific Recipient?

Oct 1, 2009

I'm trying to configure our mail server to block email from a specific sender reaching a specific recipient. In other words, if one of our employees is getting harassed by a 'stalker', how would one go about blocking, at the MTA (Sendmail) level, a specific sender email address from reaching a particular users inbox? We do not want to capture the email - simply block it before it consumes server resources.The Sendmail server (MTA) is a front end to our Exchange server so no user accounts exist on the Linux server. We simply use it as a SPAM and Virus scanner then forward clean email to the Exchange server.

Debian Configuration :: NFS Mountpoint - Access To The Files Suddenly "freezes"

Sep 23, 2010

I have an NFS on my desktop, and mount it from my laptop: /mnt/reddevil_nfs nfs rsize=8192,wsize=9182,timeo=9 Occasionally, access to the files suddenly "freezes". For example, if I try to run "ls /mnt" from the client, nothing will be printed, Ctrl-c does nothing, and the prompt never reappears; or, if I try to view that directory from thunar, thunar will freeze, or if I am playing a video from the share in mplayer, mplayer will freeze. I tried to unmount it:

umount -f /mnt/reddevil_nfs
umount2: Device or resource busy
umount.nfs: /mnt/reddevil_nfs: device is busy
umount2: Device or resource busy
umount.nfs: /mnt/reddevil_nfs: device is busy

OpenSUSE Install :: Change Mountpoint Of Partition / Media / Documents To / Documents

Dec 25, 2009

How can I change the mountpoint of my partition /media/documents to /documents.This is a partition of sdb and a fixed disk.The reason is that /media/ sometimes creates ghostdirectories while /Windows/C never does so, programmes writing/reading from this partition therfore don't work if a ghostdir_ exists.(BTW Suse is on sdb5 and sdb6. on sda is windows and used to be Ubuntu, the Suse-swap is sda5. Windows is out of use.)

Ubuntu :: Unable To Mount IPhone DBus Error - "Mountpoint Already Registered"

Apr 25, 2011

"Unable to mount iPhone DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs: Mountpoint Already registered" The above error appears upon plugging in my iPhone 3GS using a USB connection on Ubuntu 10.04. Attempting to transfer tracks to the iPhone (using Rythmbox) results in this error: "Error Transferring Track Error while getting peer-to-peer dbus connection: The name :1.140 was not provided by any .service files"

The interesting part is that I can unmount the iPhone get back into Nautilus and the iPhone icon will still be there on the left side pane. Unmounting from Nautilus does not get rid of the iPhone icon until I physically disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone. Clicking on the unmount/eject icon next to the iPhone icon in Nautilus removes the unmount/eject icon, but it does not remove the iPhone from the left side pane. My other USB devices, such as the 2TB external iOmega hard drive, exhibit identical behavior. I'm guessing that this is a gvfs bug since it appears very similar to other gvfs bugs that I've found from a couple of years ago. I am using gvfs 1.6.2-1ubuntu1~ppa1.

My iPhone used to sync work perfectly using this same Ubuntu PC as late as November 2010. There were no changes made to the iPhone, only updates to Ubuntu -- I'd like to emphasize updates; no new software was installed on this Ubuntu PC.

Ubuntu :: Long Disk-activity-pause On Boot - Between Mounting Root And Mounting Swap?

Why would there be a 15-second pause (during which the disk is slammed) between mounting root and mounting swap? During this time I see nothing but a blank purple screen, there are no cycling dots or text scroll. Is this normal and I'm just freaking out over nothing because there's no indicator of progress?

Networking :: Mounting Permissions Error / Mounting A Windows Host?

May 28, 2009

I am having permissions errors every time I try to mount a windows host. I have a linux server and all the windows computers can see that computer and its files, but we wanted to start backing up the linux machine to one of our other computers. so I tried to mount one of the computers. here is the sequence of events:

$mount -t cifs //$ /mnt/Anita-comp
password: (I have no password so I left it blank)
Mount error (13): Permission Denied
I tried all sorts of passwords we use around the office and none of them worked.

I then decided to try mounting one of our other computers. this one looked like it worked fine. no error messages at all. (I left password blank) so I look in my filesystem and the mounted drive is not in the /mnt/Anita-comp file. What gives?

Fedora :: GVFS Mountpoint /home/$USER/.gvfs ?

Jul 7, 2009

When I use nautilus open my home directory, everything is OK except that the file contents in the home directory are not presented. It seems that nautilus is still waiting and busy.

After that, I try to enter the user's home directory by the Terminal and succeed. I can use 'ls' to display the file in the home directory, But when I use 'ls -a' to print the hiden files, again the Terminal seem to be lock. the 'ls -a' is locked, I fail to 'kill' it.

At last, I find that everything that connects to the behavior which need to enter, delete or just dsplay the /home/$USER/.gvfs will fail and lock, and without any error message.
