OpenSUSE Install :: Boot - Utorrent Starts Before Fstab And The Network Drive Is Unmount
Jul 9, 2011
I succeed in uTorrent server's install as a daemon in Opensuse 11.4 and it works great. I've already change my fstab file to add a network drive to be mount on startup localize in /mnt/freebox/. This is also working great. The issue is during the startup, utorrent starts before fstab and thus the network drive is unmount.
In my utorrent init.d daemon script, I ask for $Network starts in first time: Code: Required-Start: $network Is there any possibilities to order the startup and ask to fstab to start before uTorrent Daemon?
I am trying to write a script to modify /etc/fstab that will add entries for a number of partitions on different disks.
The only thing that I do not know how to do is to obtain a unique id such as the ones in /dev/disk/by-id/ to address by from a given partition (ie /dev/sdb1). In my fstab I noticed that in installation the system added fstab entries that are unique (in /dev/disk/by-id/)
I could simply do /dev/sdb1 and so on, but I would prefer a unique identifier so that each mount point is tied to a partition on a specific and unique physical drive.
i need this to be script-able if possible, if not I would still like to know.
I just made a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.4-Tumbleweed and have the latest updates. However fstab lines I've used in the past are not working.
Here's an example of two: //IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs credentials=/home/user/.scripts/.creds,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users 0 0 //IPADDRESS/share /home/user/mount cifs guest,_netdev,uid=client_user,gid=users
I can execute a command
Code: sudo mount /home/user/mount and it works, but I'm wanting all my fstab lines to automount at boot as on other machines.
When I start linux, sometimes it boots to kde login screen and sometimes it boots to terminal login. I can login on a user, startx and all is up and running again, so it's not a great problem... but I'm curious about what could be happening.I'm not very used to linux,
I have an external hard drive that I use with my laptop and I want it to be mounted at boot. I used YaST to do this by using the Partitioner. I selected the volume, then edited then chose to have the partition mounted at boot.
On next book the computer booted up and mounted the device as I expected but the boot up process took a long time. When I would usually get the desktop I got only a black screen for about one minute, the the desktop finally loads. I tried to reboot a number of times but I still get the same delay.
When I go back and choose to have the hard drive not auto mount and then reboot there is no delay in loading the desktop. So it seems like mounting this device is delaying the loading of my desktop on boot somehow.
Below is the line that is added to my fstab file to auto mount the drive:
I have tried two distros - Mandriva and OpenSuse. Both provide the same results, though Mandriva booted...but still the same problem, after installing blank screen comes up and nothing. Keyboard touch bad, mouse nothing happens. I would prefer openSuse but may have to switch.

Install Win7 64-Bit no issues, wiped and installed Linux and I cannot get past this blank screen. Installation works, no problem installed packages etc. When coming up on 1st boot, login - boom nothing? Searching the web and I suspect the Intel graphics are the problem but I'm not sure.
I bought this laptop to put Linux on it solely for a personal project of using Linux for a year. I'm an IT professional for 23 years and comfortable with CLI.
I am using CentOS 5.5 OS. I already install ntfs-3g rpm, but I don't know the command to mount network NTFS drive. I also want to mount it on my fstab file, so whenever it reloads, it can automatically mount on the specific folder.
I have a SMB share being mounted during boot using a /etc/fstab entry.All that seems to work fine, but on shutdown or reboot I found that the system hangs for a variable period trying to unmount the share. It appears from the log that the unmount is happening after the network connections are closed.Is there someway around this, or is there some other way I should be mounting the share so that it is closes successfully at restart or shutdown?
I use wicd at my laptop, since networkmanager didn't work well for me.(unable to connect..) However wicd is not connected before fstab probes my nfs shares during boot, so I wold like either to delay the fstab mount command or make sure that the mount command is performed just after that the wireless connection to my home network is up and running. Running mount -a in terminal works well, but I prefer not to run manual commands at every boot. Opensuse 11.2, KDE 4.3
I have a Dell laptop with Windows XP installed, and for various reasons (Help: I borked my WindowsXP boot when installing OpenSUSE 11.3) I can not install a GRUB boot loader to the first hard drive (hd0).
I currently have a second hard drive in this laptop with a perfectly working OpenSUSE 11.3 instance, but no way to boot into it. I remember back in ancient times, a common option with Linux distros was to create a boot floppy to boot into Linux rather than installing GRUB or LILO to MBR. Since this laptop doesn't have a floppy drive I'd like to do the same thing with a USB stick. Is there any way to install GRUB (or something similar) to a USB stick? What I am not asking here is whether I can put a full, bootable Linux instance on a USB drive - I only want a boot loader on USB that launches to the appropriate mount point on (hd1).
I have an opensuse 11.3 install which I want to set up as a network boot server to install Solaris 10 on a Sun Ultra 10 client. According to what I've read, this requires rarpd and tftpd which I've set up on opensuse, but also bootparamd which I can't find for 11.3. It seems it was last included with opensuse 9.2. Does anyone know if it's available, if I could use the suse 9.2 version, or any alternative?
Since OpenSuse 11.2 doesn't reconnect samba shares upon a resume from suspend, I wrote a small, ugly script to do so. It's placed in /etc/pm/sleep.d/66samba-remount
#!/bin/bash case $1 in hibernate) echo "Hey guy, we are going to suspend to disk!" /etc/init.d/smbfs stop ;; suspend) /etc/init.d/smbfs stop ;; thaw) echo "oh, suspend to disk is over, we are resuming..." sleep 15 /etc/init.d/smbfs restart ;; resume) sleep 15 /etc/init.d/smbfs restart ;; *) echo "somebody is calling me totally wrong." ;; esac
and made it executable (as root) chmod +x /etc/pm/sleep.d/66samba-remount
The 15 seconds sleep time is useful to me to postpone the remount after WiFi is back online. Perhaps there are way more elegant ways to do so (check for x times if WiFi is on, for example), but I'm no good at bash, and this serves me well. How do I file a wishlist for 11.3? If someone puts a samba share in fstab, I'd assume he wants it connected mostly everytime (at startup for sure... so why not over a standby?) I hope 11.3 just reconnects in-fstab samba shares in a polished way, out of the box.
When running the umount command like this as superuser: umount /dev/sda8. get the following message:umount: /home: device is busy.(In some cases useful info about processes that usethe device is found by lsof(8) or fuser(1))
Im good with windows computers but have no idea about linux. OKay i installed the brand new OPENSUSE DVD, everything installed ok, but then i got to the internet problem, well connection problem. 1. I am going through a router to a att dsl modem. so i use a static ip as my desktop and my xbox 360 are both connected and both working fine, the router is a linksys etherfast cable/dsl router. my labtop is a acer with a realtek family Ethernet series model. so i tried just about everything and nothing works, so i switched to traditional and turned off the network manager, and it tried to load smpdd or something and couldnt get it from the dvd drive that was mounted even though i had used the drive 10 minutes ago to INSTALL THE OS. so them i went back to square one and tried a reinstall, but when i try to setup the connection on the install, the ip static doesnt work, i even plugged the thing directly into the modem and went to automatic dhcp settings- and still nothing.
I recently downloaded OpenSUSE 11.3 GNOME for my Netbook. I wrote the image over to my SanDisk 4 GB USB Drive, and it boots on my laptop but not on my ASUS 1004 Netbook. I have already adjusted things like BIOS and Boot Order on the netbook but I am still getting error messages such as "Insert Boot Device" and "Cannot boot from USB". I am trying to make my netbook a dual boot (Windows 7 and SUSE) PC.
My machine came with one drive installed with XP. I put a second drive in and installed 11.2. Dual boot. I'm replacing the XP drive (keep intact) with a new one but don't want to lose the ability of booting off the second drive. I want the new drive to be first drive in the system.
i have windows xp on main hard drive and installed 11.1 on a usb drive now i have to have the usb to boot windows , and i have to pick windows from the boot loader , any way to remove this as i don't need to usb anymore .
I'm using opensuse 10.2 when I rebooted the my pc I got the message (in the url).P0216_171010 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!I can not boot into tty1 or tty3,5. I tried to repair with Opensuse CD but can not.
I have just installed opensuse 11.4 and the install fails to boot, grub hangs or gives an error.
I have tried installing grub in MBR and root changed every setting I can find and even downloaded a fresh ISO. As a last resort I changed the machines BOIS settings from SATA to emulate ide, booted as expected but a bit slow.
11.2 and 11.3 worked on this machine with no problems. Am i missing something? I also tried an Ubuntu install and this worked fine!
I have used Ubuntu 8.04 and uprgaded to the new 9.10 both using the gneom desktop. I wanted to work with KDE and SUSE so I bought the Linux Format magazine with the DVD 126 which had SUSE 11.1 with the KDE desk top. I have a Toshiba L455 laptop and had windows 7 on 110 gb and had ubuntu 8.04 on 50 gb and ubuntu 9.10 ob 48 gb. I had ran the installer and it identified both linux systems and I selected to install SUSE in the space allocated to 8.04. It only boots to suse with the option to select windows. It showes 9.10 mixed with suse. I have not used suse. Is there an uninstall that will allow me to start over with the installation after creating a partition first. How can I get 9.10 to boot or how can I recover data from it.
I have a laptop with a small (dual boot) hard drive. It is a dual boot with Windows XP and Open Suse 11.1. I want to remove Suse Linux but keep the Windows side. I need to keep that Windows drive just the way it is. I have OpenSUSE 11.2 installed in another laptop and want to keep them separate. I don't want to damage the proprietary program on the windows side. My challenge is I do not have aa Windows install CD, I do have the recovery disk that came with the Laptop, but this DOES NOT include the Proprietary program I want to keep. Is there a way to remove Linux from this dual boot drive without erasing Windows?
I've been wanting to start using Linux for years now and after doing some research on which distro to use, I've decided to give it a try with openSUSE and ordered a DVD copy from Novel last night. Needless to say, I'm a newbie to Linux. I'm building a new computer with two identical hard drives and I'd like to install openSUSE and XP on them and hence make a dual boot system. This is also going to be my first time setting up a dual boot. So, while I'm waiting for the openSUSE DVD to arrive, how to actually set it all up?
