OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mounting Devices In Suse 11.2?

Dec 13, 2009

I came into this strange behavior related to mounting DVDs and/or CDs in SuSE 11.2 : after inserting a DVD intro the DVD unit, and mounting it through the "device notifier" applet, I find the disk mounted in /media under a folder named after the disk label (as expected) BUT ... the folder is in fact padded with blanks after the name found as label for the disk. For ex.: I have a DVD called DVD_ROCK2 The mounting is made in "/media/DVD_ROCK2 " (the folder created at mounting time in /media has 14 characters (if I counted them correctly) instead of the only 8 from the name of the disk This does affect my application "cdcollect", which crashes when it encounters a mounted disk which contains spaces in it's label.

I tried to adjust cdcollect, by modifying it's dources (trying to "trim" the name readed as disk-label, but with no results; anyway I am not good at C#, and even kinda hate this language, so... I'd prefer a solution coming from Linux's point of view: what changed in the mounting system from Suse 11.1 till now ? what can I do to change this way of mounting the disks ?I cannot state this happens with every single one of my DVDs; the ones wich are mounted this way are generally written in the same PC, in older versions of SuSE (11.0 and 11.1). Unfortunatelly, I had an older written disk (way back on SuSE 9.x) which does not behave this way (it is mounted in a folder with the name created exactly as the label is, without the padded spaces).

SUSE :: Mounting Remote Directory On Startup On Suse

Oct 7, 2010

So ive got a Suse server up and running. It is connecting to a clearcase server, so i want to mount the remote filesystem as part of startup, as this is generally rebooted when im not around.I would normally add something to /etc/init.d and put the shortcut to it in the appropriate runlevel (in this case 3). Tried that. Didnt work.

Realised the init script needed to have the LBS stuff at the start, so put that in, and used insserv to add the script. I used required-start set to $ALl.This successfully created the init script with S20, and i eneabled it with chkconfig.

Programming :: Mounting Multiple Devices To Root?

May 16, 2010

I'm trying to build a custom setup that requires a flash drive and a CD to both be mounted to root. Applications, boot data, and other static directories are on the CD, while /home, /opt, and /tmp are on the flash drive. Is there a special option I can enter into fstab to allow this? If not, I intend to modify my kernel to allow this, but I'll need to find the sources that control this function.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mounting Removable Devices When Plugged In

May 26, 2009

I want the following behavior in kubuntu 9.04 when I plug a device (USB stick or CD disk):

1. It should be mounted automatically for me. Now it isn't, though it appears in fdisk -l output: Code: Disk /dev/sdd: 8006 MB, 8006926336 bytes
16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 30544 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 512 * 512 = 262144 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x9b12d290
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdd1 * 16 30544 7815232 b W95 FAT32 and if I mount it manually, all goes OK

2. If I mount manually my CD disk and then press the eject button on my drive nothing happens until I manually unmount the drive. But I want it to open immediately

All this worked for me in kubuntu 8.10, and broke with the upgrade.
My fstab entries Code: /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/sdc1 /media/usb vfat noexec,codepage=866,utf8,nosuid,nodev,quiet,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=077,user 0 0

Slackware :: Auto-mounting USB Devices Stopped Working?

Mar 29, 2010

When I installed slackare 13 it detected usb drives and cameras automaticallyow it doesn't. I am runnning a 13.0 system, not current, so I have only applied the updates in that branch (iirc including a new kernel).nowadays when i plug a device in it does not seem to be detected by HAL (i.e not in KDE).However the device is listed if you use the command "lsusb" and the computer obviously knows it has been plugged in as there is a relevant entry in dmesg.Sorry for the generallised nature of the post, but I don't really know anything about HAL or how it can have stopped working

Ubuntu :: USB Devices Not Mounting When Switching Users / Logging On With Different User

Feb 28, 2010

I have an external USB drive that is NTFS. It mounts fine under my account and my wife's, but only if I fully shut-down the computer between switching. While switching users or logging out then in with a different account it will not mount the drive. I am not sure what to do... but we both access data from the same drive.

SUSE :: Drive Mounting, 'Computer' Page?

Apr 1, 2010

I added a second internal hard drive (/dev/sdb1) to a SuSE Linux system. I chose /home/users/STORAGE as a mount point. If I navigate to /home/users/ and right-click on the STORAGE directory and choose properties, I can see the amount of free space in the sdb1 partition of the second hard drive. Everything looks as I expected it to.However, if I choose the 'My Computer' option, click on home from there, which is where /dev/sda1 is mounted) and then navigate to STORAGE, the address bar in Konquerer looks something like this: da1:/users/STORAGEI might not have the format completely right but I do know that sda1 is listed at the beginning of the address. Yet if I copy files into this directory they end up in sdb1. Are there any issues with accessing the directory this way? When I right-click on STORAGE after navigating to /users/ through the My Computer page, the space used/available does not reflect the sdb1 partition.

A second question I have: On the My Computer page each mount location is shown in the top-right corner. The name of the new internal hard drive I added is displayed as "1TB media." That name is also a link to the mount point. How can I change this to something else? I would avoid using the My Computer page all together but there are many other people using this system and most of them know no other way to access thedirectorie

OpenSUSE :: SuSE To SuSE Remote Desktop?

Mar 5, 2010

What would be the preferred method to establish a remote desktop session from one 11.2 machine to another 11.2 machine in the same location? No firewalls, local connection only. I've looked at VNC, RDP with xrdp, have not been able to establish a session to desktop. I would rather not use desktop sharing if possible, don't want invitations involved. Want something similar to hitting from Windows with VNC3and taking over the established desktop session. This is in my house, no security risks involved

OpenSUSE Hardware :: USB Devices Randomly Don't Appear After Boot OpenSUSE 10.3

Aug 11, 2011

I have a embedded computer running 10.3 (stuck with that version) that has USB device issues. In reality, it has two USB devices attached, both FTDI FT232 USB to Serial Uart driven hardware. Both usually are at /dev/ttyUSB0 and 1 when everything goes right. The latest FTDI driver is already in the kernel. Randomly however, when it boots one or both will be missing in dev. If we only leave one physically attached before booting, sometimes it comes up ok, the other times there's no listing in /dev/ or lsusb. But when we do run lsusb once and watch the system log, suddenly the device is found and 'attached'. Then it works fine.

I've repeated this with another test USB device (and old cell phone that gets installed as a ceullar modem) and the same thing can happen. It will randomlyy be missing from lsusb listing till lsusb is run once. IE, run it once, no listing, run it again, then it shows up and the system log saya it was just attached. If we leave both, sometimes one device (Call this one A) is ready to go, but device B is missing. If we unplug B, A dissapears from /dev/ and the system log says A was unpluged. The when we reattach B, both show up in /dev/ and the system log reports two USB devices were attached. running lsusb doesn't fix one or both missing when they are both physically attached.

OpenSUSE Network :: Mounting A Cifs Share As Normal User In OpenSuse 11.4?

Apr 2, 2011

Q: How can I allow my users to mount a cifs share without an entry in fstab in OpenSuse 11.4?

I have an answer myself. Until OpenSuse 11.2 I could mount my samba shares by making mount.cifs and umount.cifs setuid root. Today I installed OpenSuse 11.4. Unfortunately mount.cifs isn't anymore allowed to be setuid due to security concerns. Security is not an issue in my case, so I copied the mount.cifs and umount.cifs from 11.2 to make it work again:

1. Download cifs-mount-3.4.2- from this repository (I use 64 bit):
2. Extract the files mount.cifs and umount.cifs from the rpm and copy them to /sbin
3. Make them setuid root:

linux-y5qw:~ # chmod u+s /sbin/mount.cifs
linux-y5qw:~ # chmod u+s /sbin/umount.cifs
4. Mount your cifs shares as a normal user:

martin@linux-y5qw:~> /sbin/mount.cifs // /home/martin/data/ -ousername=martin

OpenSUSE :: 2 Out Of 3 Usb Devices Work In Virtualbox?

Dec 9, 2009

Host is x64 openSUSE 11.2
guest is winxp pro
VirtualBox ver 3.0.12

The install and setup of VirtualBox is good and working.

I'm having a perplexing issue with usb devices. I have three usb devices connected to my system - apc battery, sd carder, and a Logitech joystick. All devices work on the host. I can connect the apc and the card reader to the guest and they work perfectly. But not the Logitech joystick. I get this error, same as I've seen in some other threads:

Failed to attach the USB device Logitech Force 3D Pro [0600] to the virtual machine winxp1. Failed to create a proxy device for the USB device. (Error: VERR_READ_ERROR)

under "details" is this:

Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Component: Console
Interface: IConsole {0a51994b-cbc6-4686-94eb-d4e4023280e2}

When I installed I modified my fstb:

/dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_SP2004C_S07GJ1UA115587-part1 / ext4 noatime,acl,user_xattr 1 1

OpenSUSE :: How To Recognize Mounted Devices

Apr 13, 2010

I have recently mounted my iPod Touch using ifuse, and it works with gtkpod and I'm very pleased about that! However, I'm interested in finding out how openSUSE recognises what devices are mounted? Because the device manager in the task bar doesn't recognise that it's mounted... Dolphin doesn't recognise it and neither does Amarok. Only gtkpod, which is good, but I want other applications to recognise it. Do I need to mount it in a specific location? Currently it's at /mnt/iPhone. Or do I need something in fstab (I'm just guessing here).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 - How To Detect New USB Devices

Sep 22, 2010

Strange to me that a search only seemed to turn up some partial instructions for enabling detection of new USB devices (not discoverable in a default install) in 11.1 and no later. I assume perhaps incorrectly that things have changed since so attempted the following.

Objective: Discover an HTC G1 phone to use as a modem. So, after the phone is discoverable by SuSE the next step would be to configure the connection.

Current: It seems that this phone is listed in /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/

Attempt: I assumed incorrectly it seems that it should have been sufficient to simply create a file in the /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/ directory with the appropriate TargetVendor and TargetProduct codes as follows

Filename: 0bbr:0c01

# HTC Android G1 Phone
DefaultVendor= 0x0bb4


I need the proper way to do this in OpenSuSE 11.3. A bonus would be if someone could verify that after the modem/phone is recognized whether the next step is to configure the device using YAST/modem.

OpenSUSE Install :: Open Suse 11.3 Along With Win 2008 R2 OS - Error "Win2008 R2 Is Not Supported In Open Suse Installer"

Mar 6, 2011

I am trying to Install Open Suse 11.3 (burned as an ISO DVD) along with existing Win 2008 R2 OS. When I try to boot from the DVD it just logs in to Win2008 though boot from CD/DVD is enabled in the boot sequence. So i tried to mount the ISO and run from Windows ! BUT I get an error before installation starts telling that Win2008 R2 is not supported in open suse installer! Is there anything I can do to overcome this and install/retain both OS? In fact I am even trying to c hange my win2008 from R2 to Enterprise to see if I can overcome the problem!

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 - Two Devices Mounted On One Directory

Jan 11, 2010

I have 3 disks in my PC which are partitioned equally as I use them for Raid 1.The first partition on every disk is a simple ext2 partition for booting. No Raid there. So I mount them as /boot and /boot2 and /boot3. So I can backup my /boot to the other boot directories. That worked for some month and this morning I just want to look if all directories have enough free space left. So I did a df -h and got this:

Dateisystem Grove Benut Verf Ben% EingehÃĪngt auf
6,0G 301M 5,4G 6% /
udev 1,5G 292K 1,5G 1% /dev
/dev/sdb1 122M 29M 87M 25% /boot
/dev/sdc1 38M 21M 16M 59% /boot2
/dev/sda1 122M 29M 87M 25% /boot
As you can see /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1 are both mounted on /boot

Here is what mount says:
/dev/sdb1 on /boot type ext2 (ro,acl,user_xattr)
/dev/sdc1 on /boot2 type ext2 (ro,acl,user_xattr)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext2 (ro,acl,user_xattr)

This is no Problem for me as I could just remount it correctly, but I would like to know if this problem is known. I did not change anything by now and this PC is a server which is running 24/7, so I can deliver more debugging Information if someone is interested.

OpenSUSE Install :: Delayed USB Devices At Startup?

Jan 22, 2010

When I reboot, USB keyboard acts just fine for GRUB. Once SUSE begins to boot, I lose the keyboard (numlock light goes off too). Cannot press ESC to watch the boot sequence. Then, at login, there is no mouse or keyboard for about 60 seconds. Then suddenly, they both become active. Why did this start happening?

It has been about a week since my last reboot, so there's been a few config changes and patches, so it's going to be hard to narrow down a culprit. Thought USB configs in /etc/fstab was the problem, but still happening after rolling back changes to a known good config. Re-ran SaX2. Mouse and keyboard look good in the config file. Also, have otherwise healthy USB behavior with thumb drives and in VirtualBox machines. It just acts goofy at boot time.
