Hardware :: Unable To Mount Main System Jfs Partition / Sort It?
Jan 14, 2011
I Am Having Problem With My JFS Partition On Which Ubuntu Is Installed. It Is Not Mounting. The Bootscreen Says There Is Serious Problem With Mounting The Partition And It Does Not Load Linux. I Tried jfs_fsck -p and -a But With No Success. I Also Tried Checking For Errors Using GParted.
The Logscreen Said logredo failed and unrecoverable error reading M from /dev/sda5/ CANNOT CONTINUE. Is There Any Way I Can Repair This Or Atleast Get My Data Back?
I am trying to create a multi-partition USB key to use to kick multiple OS's whenever I need (1 NTFS partition for Windows image and data storage, one ext3 for boot, another ext3 for Linux distros iso storage and the last one as a Fedora live usb with permanent storage).
I am using a Kingston Data Traveler G2 16GB usb key and I have absolutely no problem to create the partitions and all looks fine. The problem I encounter is that although I can format the 1st partition on the usd key to any fs I want, I am unable to do the same on the other partitions. I tried fdisk+mkfs.XXX (ext2, ext3, fat, vfat, ntfs) and gparted, and no luck.
mkfs.XXX gives me no errors when I run it but when I try to mount the partition in Fedora 14 the OS is unable detect the fs. Gparted allows me to format the fs, gives no errors, shows a format successful message, but when it re-scans the device the fs appears as unknown.
I know it is possible to do this as I had a DataTraveler 101 16GB and it was working fine until I lost it.
I'm new to Linux world. I'm using Ubuntu 9.04. I'm unable to go online using Ubuntu because I'm unable to run an executable client application provided by my ISP. I called them and they are not able to help me instlling this client applicatoin for me on my Ubuntu. "I cannot go online untill I install this ISP client application on my Ubuntu." I'm entering my ISPs weblink in this blogpost so that it would be easy for you guys to help me resolving this issue. http://www.spacenetindia.net/download.php This is the weblink where I downloaded that ISP client application from. I clicked on this link and clicked on 24online clients.exe tab located on the left and downloaded linuxclient.gz. Please help me if you find any resolution for this issue. Though I tried downloading Wine but I could not as I cannot go onlnie in Ubuntu. In windows I don't know how to install wine to make it work offline in ubuntu.b
Environment: A 32-bit kernel RHEL5.3 system running on a virtual machine. The root(/) filesystem is on an LV.
Issue: Unable to resize the FS after extending the root LV since it is mounted. After extending the LV, online resizing of the FS was not supported and the root filesystem could not be unmounted while it was in use. On rebooting, I got a kernel panic error. In runlevel 1, I couldn't run chroot, couldn't find the /etc/fstab, root FS could not be mounted, fsck did not run (tried block 31 for second copy of superblock using dd count=1 bs=4k skip=31 seek=1 if=/dev/sda2 of=/dev/sda2), couldn't find any rpm on installation media to install unix-utils rpm. On running commands in runlevel 1,
I switch on the PC and it loads the Grub splash screen. However, it does not automatically boot the top entry after two seconds as it's supposed to and just hangs. I hit enter to boot it and it attempts to but after a few seconds gives me the error "unable to mount file system....a maintenance shell will be started"
This occurred after I was using it and then everything suddenly froze up on me and I had to crash out Now this!
I was dual-booting Ubuntu (10.10) and Windows 7. I installed Backtrack in addition to these 2, and the Ubuntu GRUB was replaced with the one from Backtrack.
Now when I boot, only Backtrack and Windows 7 are listed in GRUB. When I run fdisk from Backtrack, I see all partitions, and running a Partition Manager lists the Ubuntu partition as a Linux partition. However, the partition manager says that it is unable to read the contents of the partition, and that it is unable to re-read the partition table.
Also, the Ubuntu, Backtrack, and Linux Swap partition are all listed under the same Extended partition.
Still a novice in Ubuntu (Karmic Koala). I'm trying to mount an ext4 20GB partition of my hard drive so that i can use it to store data, i want it to appear on my desktop as well as on places, as far as i know this is achieved by mounting the partition in /media. At my first attempt i used the following commands. (i named the partition ondskapt)
Code: sudo mkdir /ondskapt sudo gedit /etc/fstab in this document i added the following at the end: /dev/sda4 /ondskapt ext4 defauts 0 0
I am unable to mount partition in ubuntu 10.04. Icons for different partitions are not coming within "Places". Every time I have to manually mount the partition or CD or DVD and manually unmount it. Seldom it shows the partition icons within Places>Computer. Then the partitions are getting mounted upon double clicking its partition-icon. But I fail to unmount the partition as it throws the error "media/partition_name is not in the fstab (and you are not root)."
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.

I am running the latest debian lenny OS and with kernel 2.6.26-2-686. I have a common /data partition for both Ubuntu and Debian which is ext4 file system. I am not able to mount this volume. The error message reads "unknown filesystem type ext4". How do I fix this. I searched the net and there was a link talking about this
Upon trying to boot Windows I got through the GRUB startup selections and then i get stuck at a black screen displaying "Starting Up. . ." That would be no problem, I just boot ubuntu instead and mount the partition to access the programs I'm looking for. Now I get an interesting error message:
"Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup: magic: 0x00150000 size: 4096 usa_ofs: 0 usa_count: 1040: Invalid argument Actual VCN (0x15000011d92501) of index buffer is different from expected VCN (0x1). Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details."
I would run chkdsk in windows if I could, but that's my problem in the first place.
had a dual O/S win Vista 64bit & unbuntu 9.10 64bit.
1. Had a virus on my Win vista side, anti virus could help (virus kept replicating itself - to halt all progs from running). 2. In the End Win Vista would start & was only used Unbuntu for about 2 days. 3. Tried to repair Win Vista, but noting worked. 4. Couldn't mount Win partition through unbuntu either - needed to copy some files across. 5. Eventually formatted Win partition side & re-installed Win Vista 64bit. 6. The problem now is that the grub option to select the O/S choice isn't there, thus i can't use Linux. 6b. The computer loads only Win vista 64bit (Like there usn't a Linux) 7.Checked at the disk management prog - could see my linux space but have no access. 8. Used a live Linux cd to access linux partition, just to check - it worked. 9. how can i acccess the Linux O/S as normal?
Is there a way I can run myProgram when desktop appears no matter if root , administrator, desktop user or an unprivileged user logs in? I actually developed a script which I set to run at startup i.e. when the Desktop appears. Script runs finely but can't mount a partition. In the script I mounted a partition using
Code: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt &> result.txt After executing script a file named result.txt was created which contained Code: sudo: no tty present and no askpass program specified
In other words the mounting failed. If I run the script myself from the terminal using sudo ./myProgram i don't face this problem and the drive gets mounted successfully.
I have a 4gb SDHC card that has been partitioned with an ext2, linux swap, and fat 32 partition that I use in an Android phone. After I partitioned it this way, which I have done more than once with no problems, it quit mounting or being recognized by Android, Linux, or Windows. Windows can tell there is something there but can't mount it, Debian and Android just say it's not there. I need to try to fix the partition table which gparted told me was corrupt the last time gparted could see it.
I have 500GB external HDD. I have to mount it my CenOS -4.8 Machine.(kernel-18.104.22.168EL 32-bit) . External HDD partitions are ntfs file system partition. I have tried to mount ntfs partition in linux . But it's not done.
sda is what I currently run to write this text, sdb is my former harddrive, connected via USB.
I want to access the root partition on sdb.
The problem is:
Code: Select allcryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdb5 oldhd Enter passphrase for /dev/sdb5: root@x200s:/home/b# ls /dev/mapper/ control oldhd sda5_crypt x200s--vg-root x200s--vg-swap_1 root@x200s:/home/b# mount /dev/mapper/oldhd /mnt/ [b]mount: unknown filesystem type 'LVM2_member'[/b]
Before all this, both sda and sdb where in the same volume group. I renamed the volume group of sdb to "oldDisk" using
Code: Select allvgrename <UUID> oldDisk
How I can access the data on the root filesystem of my sdb..
