OpenSUSE Hardware :: No Application That Can Open Type Block Device (inode/blockdevice)?

Jul 21, 2010

I'm having trouble mounting hard drives and partitions - and am rather nervous about using Yast partitioner to do this. Is there something that would tell me about mount points in Yast partitioner? So far I haven't been able to find that information anywhere. I don't want to lose information on existing drives and partitions but do want to be able to access them.Some of them appear under disk information in "My Computer" but if I try to mount them I get this error message.There is no application installed that can open files of the type block device (inode/blockdevice).I was trying to edit fstab,his didn't seem straightforward either. I've been hacking this about in other Linux distros - so not entirely clueless

I decided to take an old Gateway that I bought off a guy cheaply and turn it into a file and web server.I purchased copies of Debian 5.0.4 i386 disks (31 in all) on the advice of a friend, the disks weren't expensive, but now that Ive installed all the disks, I'm having a variety of errors

Jul 9, 2010

I was using gparted from a live usb to resize an ext4 partition and it failed while running resize2fs. The error it gave was

resize2fs: The inode is from a bad block in the inode table while trying to resize /dev/sda5
please run 'e2fsck -fy /dev/sda5' to fix the filesystem after the aborted resize operation.

OpenSUSE Install :: VFS - Cannot Open Root Device "NULL" Or Unknown-block - 3,1

Nov 14, 2009

Currently running rc2. Downloaded 11.2 final DVD, md5sum is good, burned DVD, YaST says media check is good. (And for completeness burned a second DVD and get the same problem.)

On booting from the DVD I select "Installation" - a kernel loads and starts checking available h/w devices then crashes with the above message.

Followed by Please append a correct "root=" boot option.

Tried with root=sda1 (partition that is /) and only change is unknown-block (0,0)

My best guess is that I have EXT4 (did a clean install of RC2)? And/or I dont have a swap partition?

Ubuntu :: Define Application To Open A Certain File Type?

Jul 20, 2010

I have installed Gantt Project (project management application) under 10.04. The system identifies the .gan files produced by the program as xml files. How do I tell the system to open .gan files with the GanttProject application?

I tried right click on the file to open and using "Open with other application" but the GanttProject application does not appear to be in the list of available programs.

Ubuntu :: Ext4 Block - Inode Count Wrong ?

Jun 28, 2010

I'm running a small development server on Ubuntu 10.04 server 64 bit with ext4 as the File system type.

I keep on getting wrong block / inode size when I do an fsck:


I then force an fsck and the problem is solved, but given a day or two, the problem is back. This can sometime consume up to 10G of my HDD space.

General :: EXT3 FS Error - Unable To Read Inode Block

Feb 8, 2011

I am using Wind River Linux- The problem is whenever I execute "reboot, ls, cd" and many other commands the OS prompts me an error-
"end request: i/o error, dev sda, sector "(different sector each time)" and
EXT3-fs error (device sda1):ext3_get_inode_loc:unable to read inode block- inode-4088001, block-4097027
I also executed "dmesg", it also showed similar errors. Has the disk gone bad or the kernel is corrupted?

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Browse 11.3 CD - Block Device Write Protected

Jul 15, 2010

I can browse the iso image easily enough with a loopback mount, but when it comes to mounting the actual CD (which I did first), I get:

$ sudo mount -t udf,iso9660 /dev/dvd /mnt/dvd
mount: block device /dev/dvd is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/dvd,
missing codepage or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so
/var/log/messages isn't very helpful, either:

Jul 15 15:15:56 bkorb-dt kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device
Jul 15 15:15:56 bkorb-dt kernel: sr0: rw=0, want=68, limit=4
Jul 15 15:15:56 bkorb-dt kernel: isofs_fill_super: bread failed, dev=sr0, iso_blknum=16, block=16
$ md5sum openSUSE-11.3-DVD-x86_64.iso
adf5d2a0a03c1e3aaf102fd6a4771b87 openSUSE-11.3-DVD-x86_64.iso

I burned it with K3B and it gets the same result trying to mount it. K3B seems to know that the image is an iso9660 and is able to display the various 9660 id fields just fine. It just won't mount.

Hardware :: "failed To Set Xfermode," / Getting Ext3 Errors About Failing To Read An Inode Block?

Aug 19, 2010

About a month and a half ago I purchased two new 500GB serial ATA hard drives from Best Buy to replace my other, very old 186GB SATA hard drive. Since then I've had issues with Linux. Sometimes when it's booting it gives a bunch of error messages, such as "failed to set xfermode," and then it boots. Other times, after INIT has started, I get ext3 errors about failing to read an inode block, then "cannot start /sbin/agetty" and "ID c5 respawning too fast," and at this point booting fails altogether. These errors seem to happen randomly. However, once the system has booted, everything seems to work fine, and there are no further issues.

I know it's not a faulty hard drive or filesystem because I've tried Linux on both hard drives numerous times, and I've reformatted many times, one time I even tried erasing one of the hard drives byte for byte and then formatting it, and still had issues.

I've tried Arch Linux, Gentoo, VectorLinux, and openSUSE, and all of them have given me these problems. The live CD's for Ubuntu 10.04, Clonezilla, and GParted all have trouble partitioning/cloning/installing to these hard drives. At this point, it's obvious to me that there is a universal problem with this particular model.

GRUB and Syslinux both work fine, and Windows XP works fine too. It's only Linux that's giving me issues.

I would rather not buy a new hard drive if I can help it, seeing as these two are almost brand new. Is there some BIOS setting that could be causing these problems? Is it some unsupported feature in the hard drives? Is it a bug in the Linux kernel?

The hard drive model is WD5000AADS. Both hard drives are this same model. My motherboard is an NForce 680i SLI.

EDIT: I've tried ext2/3, ReiserFS, and XFS, and all of them do this, so I don't think it's a filesystem issue.

If it helps I installed some program that had to do whith typing python. I need to know the following

1:Is it a bug or my mistake?
2:How do I get open office up and running?

Ubuntu :: VFS: Cannot Open Root Device "mapper/mylaptop-root" Or Unknown-block(0,0)

Nov 5, 2010

Installed Maverick last night... the system has been working fine all day... then on a reboot tonight got the following.

RAMDISK: gzip image found at block 0
usb 1-2: new high speed usb device using ehci_hcd and address 2
uncompression error
VFS: Cannot open root device "mapper/mylaptop-root" or unknown-block(0,0)


Then it gives the Kernel Panic

Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
Pid: 1, comm: swapper not tainted 2.6.35-22-generic #35-Ubuntu

Then a call trace...This is a brand new install of Maverick I copied my files onto a USB and did a fresh install on the whole drive using the alternate CD (the desktop and netbook editions both failed to read on my system) was previously using Karmic with no issues. I tried to e2fsck the dev/sda1 from the CD in "repair broken system" mode but the return was "clean" I read that as the file system being intact but this is an area that I have no real knowledge in.

Ubuntu Installation :: From A USB Flash Memory Stick - Warning "VFS: Cannot Open Root Device "sda6" Or Unknown-block(0,0)" And Kernel Panic On First Boot

Apr 24, 2011

I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 from a USB flash memory stick. It works fine until around 95%, where I get the following warning/error:


I click OK and the installer seems to finish nicely, except the terminal throws several errors along these lines (see photo):


I tried also with 10.04 LTS, the difference being that the install warning appears two or three times instead of once. Some results from googling (Ubuntu Forums, Ubiquity bug) suggest unchecking the initial update options. I am going to try this but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get the boot loader right (there seemed to be problems with this).

OpenSUSE :: Cdrecord Has No Permission To Open The Device?

Jan 7, 2010

Still getting the "cdrecord has no permission to open the device" error when trying to burn an iso image to a DVD-RW.

I did yet another clean install of openSUSE 11.2 64 on my desktop computer, did updates, added Nvidia and Packman repos (it's not a repo problem as I tried it several times on a totally clean install), added codecs and stuff as advised by caf.

I updated the DVD drive firmware earlier today.

My user is a member of ALL groups.

Drive is an LG GH22NSS50 (sata)

It all works (with the same DVD-RW) under winxp on the same machine.

Is it HAL or something else that blocks permission to devices?

I'm really getting sick to death of this problem, and would be happy just to get rid of anything blocking permissions to the DVD drive.

OpenSUSE Install :: ATI Driver - Boot But X Windows Crashes When Open Any Application?

Apr 4, 2011

I am new to opensuse, having migrated from Ubuntu. I have had some difficulty with power management on Ubuntu so i decided to install opensuse with kde as i heard it was good for laptops. I have had lots of trouble getting opensuse 11.4 to boot properly and to run without freezing.

I have trawled the forums and bugzilla and the documentation, e.g. SDB:ATI - openSUSE and SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE. Consequently i am now able to boot (normally), however whenever i open any application, e.g. Dolphin file manager, Firefox, etc, the tab starts to load (little circle starts spinning on the tab), and then it freezes.

At this point I can exit X Windows and enter the text mode. I have repeated this with the FGLRX and Radeon drivers running. This is always repeatable. I can also boot into level 3 and do things there.

My computer details are:
HP Pavilion dv6 3032TX
Processor - Intel i7 720 QM
Ram - 6GB
GPU - ATI Mobility Radeon 5650
Harddrive - 640GB 5400rpm


What i have tried so far:

1. First 4 steps on SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE
2. Install and run FGLRX

Note that i cannot failsafe boot - it never boots into X Windows and just hangs. I really do like the look and feel of opensuse and would love to use it, but at this point my only option is to try another distro.

Server :: Using Some Application To Block IP Addresses?

Feb 16, 2011

now I have managed my rsyslogd to log the firewall into a separate file I would like to use a script which looks into this file for intruders which for example try to ping, telnet, ssh, rdp etc into my dsl connection.And then use a kind of app or firewall on my ubuntu server to block them.Yes my firewall logs them but does not block them if the policy is enabled, so they have access on through the firewall and the connect to my server but I only want some known IP addresses have access through it and this I cannot program in the firewall so I have to use some extras.Or am I thinking way to far and is there a better solution with IPtables or app?Is it possible to watch tcp connections between the firewall from outside IP addresses and the ubuntu server?

Now I'd like to associate a double click with my script. However, the .loc file shows up as "XML Document". yes, it's an XML document, but I only want .loc XML documents to be executed by my script. How can I give .loc files their own "type" so I can give them their own "Open With" application and not mess up every other xml file?
