I am trying to expand my Ubuntu partition into my Windows 7 C: drive, but the win7 partioner will not let me shrink it because of immovable files. Is there anyway for me to but an loopback device in the windows partion, and have Ubuntu boot with that as the root device?
Recently installed some minor software, some games and Ubuntu Tweak, I am not sure if that's what caused this issue or not. I shutdown after the installations, then when I tried to start back up the small, white ubuntu logo appears just like it normally does, then it just goes to a black screen. I turned off the computer and restarted in (Recovery Mode). It goes about its thing then it says it is waiting for root file system, then after about 30 seconds it says "Gave up waiting for Root File System" how to fix this without reinstalling?

I've upgraded my squeeze box to linux kernel 2.6.32-5. But it shows mounting "here is the uuid of / " on /root failed: Device or resource busy while booting.Here is the menuentry of linux kernel 2.6.32-5.
I'm trying to mount my NAS device via NFS with suse 11.1, but up to now it failed. The NAS does support NFS, but it requires a UID and a user name and up to now I could not figure out the correct nfs mount options for that.
If I just make mount 192.168.0.2:/nas1 /mnt a get the error message "mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 192.168.0.2:/nas1". So can somebody please tell me the correct options for user name and user id which the mount should use. And, preferable the correct entry for the etc/fstab file to make this mount being executed automatically during startup. I studied the mount(8) and nfs manpages several times, but I do still have no idea how to make it.
It's not possible to mount external USB (ntfs) disks with a non-root user using the Device Notifier or Dolphin. The error is:
Could not mount the following device: MyBook 2
org.freedesktop.UDisks.Error.PermissionDenied: Authentication is required
It is a permission problem; running Dolphin under root and clicking the USB disk mounts it without problems. The same should be possible to an ordinary user. The Update Applet does not work for the same reason (I can only install updates using yast).
Of course, I googled the error and there were a number of possible solutions, which I all tried. That includes allowing the action in the policy and adding the user in AdminIdentities local-authority. The file /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks.policy contains "yes" for every option. Needless to say it doesn't make sense and I'm out of options.
I have a large external drive, which I connect to my laptop via a PCMCIA card - the machine is old and does not have USB 2.0 built in, so I use the PCMCIA card for that.
I am thinking of the following setup, and hope you can give me some tips on whether or not that would be a sound solution:
- designate a boot partition on the laptop's internal hard drive, which could store kernels
- make up a linux partition (or more than one) to use as root for any distribution on the external drive
- keep /home as separate partition on the external drive
My goal in mind is to be able to boot more than one Linux partition from the external drive. I can't make it through USB boot because the PCMCIA card is not recognized before a kernel module is loaded, and I can't use the internal USB 1.1 port for the external drive.
Do you think this is the way to go? Currently, I only have my /home partition mounted off the external drive.
Just had to replace the hard drive on my wife's iPod Classic 6th Generation. Now I cannot mount the device. It works fine on Windows and Mac computers. I have tried formating it on both Windows and Mac, I've done restores through Itunes on both. Here is what I get in my /var/log/messages
I am running 11.2, kde4. The day before yesterday, the system updated and I think there was kernal update within that. I had no problems immediately afterward. Then I did a total shutdown for the night, and turned it back on yesterday only to find this:
Mount: wrong fs, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog--try dmesg | tail or so Could not mount root filesystem--exiting to /bin/sh sh: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device sh: no job control in this shell $
Besides the last updates from the other day, I did nothing out of the ordinary, no downloads or any system/configuration tweeks. Will I have to reinstall opensuse? or is there a way to reclaim my previous setup--or at least reclaim my files and documents? I'm running off of the 11.2 livecd.
Although I can perfectly mount any usb device (stick or disc) as being root, as a user I am not allowed to perform any such action! I have modified the corresponding fstab entry to look like:
Code: usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto,user 0 0 and I have also made sure that the user is a member of the disk group, but without any luck. My system is OpenSuSE 11.2 (with KDE 4.4, but the problem is the same regardless I am attempting to mount the usb device via the GUI or through the text (c/k)onsole).
I had to change the mounting properties of my disk partitions so i tinkered with the fstab file.. Now I am unable to mount the cdrom as a normal user..To mount the cdrom I had to login as root in terminal and use the following command:
Code: mount /mnt/cdrom The cdrom entry in my fstab file reads:
I have a non-super user on my box which I'd like to give it MOUNT and UMOUNT permissions but I don't know how.For example purposes, the user name is "USER".I don't want to make it into a SuperUser, just give it rights to be able to issue the MOUNT and UMOUNT commands at the terminal.
I have a Suse 11.0 Server that has been running for a long time and I have not had to touch it, well I need to get into it today and I forgot the password. So I booted it up with the install disc and got into the rescue mode but I am not sure how or which system to mount to change the root password I tried sda and sda1 but it errored out with unknown system type
I have opensuse 11.3 installed, and my motherboard has the intel i845 chipset, one day windows had enough of the intel graphics chip and would not let me have anything but 640x480 pixels, well you cant do much with that so I put an ati card in and disabled the intenal graphics. windows was happy enough but suse could not boot - more specifically could not mount the root filesystem, saying it had errors (did a very quick fsck), could not find the journal, and I had a bad superblock. the "failsafe kernel" was no better. If I take the ati card out suse boots fine. however I do swap frequently between windows and linux and changing graphics cards between boots is somewhat irritating.
I think I need to mount a serial device, but not sure how. I looked at /etc/fstab, but cannot determine what to put in for the mount type. And, not sure what port it would be exactly... imagine either "ttyS0" or "tty0". Can someone give a newbie some guidance on how to possibly mount this device?
what now trying to mount partition get this error this is the partition ubuntu 9.10 is installed on and upon reboot error no device with a long string. mount: can't find /dev/sda6/mnt in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
so now that I believe I've successfully mounted the partition how do I direct the bootloader to this partition /dev/sda6 on /media/11076e45-e27d-470b-bb6d-6894f7809a0c type ext4 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit)
When I installed OpenSuse 11.2 it mounted I configured to mount all of my windows/NTFS partition. However, one problem is that only root can write to it. I was trying to change it to '777' permission. However, as root I can't change permission. chmod doesn't work and neither does using nautilus (as root) work.I even tried unmounting it and then doing a chmod. That didn't work either.
I have bought a so-called web'n'walk stick, which identifies itself as a "Globetrotter HSDPA Model". I managed to get it identified as a serial device (initially, it is detected as a USB drive), but I fail to get it working.

I used the ntfs-config utility to mount my windows drives automatically at startup. While doing so, I had my USB-HDD still attached, and after making changes and rebooting, it did something unknown I didn't expect and I cannot mount my USB-HDD again, and it gives me the following error message:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: only root can mount /dev/sdb1 on /media/MyUSBDrive
I did manage to open it somehow, but then all the data was erased apart from ~3 GiB [edit: it's got some kind of extra drive built-in which is mounted as a CD-ROM drive, and when I open that one first all the files are missing in the actual drive, otherwise I get the message above]. I don't know what information I should include here, but my fstab looks like this:
I just compiled my first own kernel (I'm using Arch Linux), following the tutorial on the german site. Now I tried to boot it, I ended up failing with this message: Code: Waiting 10 seconds for device /dev/sda1 ... Root device '/dev/sda1' doesn't exist, Attempting to create it. ERROR: Unable to determine major/minor number of root device '/dev/sda1' Here is the important part of my menu.lst:
I simply copy&pasted the Arch-entry, i.e. I also had the disk by uuid there. The failure message was the same, just the root device name was the different name Also, at first I did not have the initrd line in my menu.lst (as written in my tutorial that I may not need it). In this case I had this error message:

I thought maybe it needs a driver.
Using YaST hardware hardware info usb
Kernel driver: gspca_pac207 the all knowing google said this driver is found in linux kernels from 2.6.28 release, I have 126.96.36.199
