OpenSUSE Install :: Mount FAT32 Partitions By UUID Fails?

Dec 27, 2009

I have a mounting rack in which I try to plug in various HDDs. Now, all of them have vfat. Blkid returns something like:

/dev/sda7: UUID="4B16-F1E8" TYPE="vfat" The UUID looks abnormally short to me. I found no way to obtain a longer, typical UUID, and when I set Yast2 partitioner to mount by UUID, it sees and it successfully uses the short UUID. Yast2 even adds it to /etc/fstab like this: UUID=4B16-F1E8 /windows/C vfat users,gid=users,umask=0002,utf8=true 0 0 However, this short UUID is useless in /etc/fstab. It doesn't work at boot time and it doesn't work when I try to mount manually. xxxxx:~ # mount /windows/C mount: special device UUID=4B16-F1E8 does not exist. Also, one cannot find these short UUIDs in /dev/disk/by-id/.

For a billion reasons, I really want to mount these FAT32 partitions by UUID. Do I have any way to do it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Lenovo W520 - Installation Fails When Formatting Partitions

May 6, 2011

I'm trying to install openSuSE 11.4 onto my brand-new Lenovo W520 laptop, using the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (FakeRAID?) controller, ROM version 10.1.0.1008. I have 2 physical 500GB disks configured in a mirror (RAID-1). Everything looks fine, the installation program comes up and asks if I want to use mdadm to manage the RAID, to which I answer yes. I go through the normal setup screens, and select the partition layout that I want (for sake of this post, I'll limit myself to the layout that the system itself recommends).

The problem comes when it becomes time to format the partitions. Somehow the partitioning program gets it into it's head that the root partition is 10TB, not 20GB, and the ext4 partitioning fails in various ways (short reads to sector zero, unable to map using 4096 byte sectors, etc, etc) depending on exactly which partitioning scheme I'm attempting. I pretty much get the same result no matter how I play the partitions, which file systems I use (XFS, ext4, etc [of course, I can't use XFS for /boot...]).

For now I've gone ahead and set myself up using software RAID, since this system is unlikely to become dual-boot with Windows for a few years at least. (As an aside, but as a hint to others, when the installation fails, I end up having to go back into the Intel RAID controller BIOS boot to clear out the entire RAID setup each time it fails - the disks are left in a completely useless state).

OpenSUSE Install :: Mount NTFS Partitions In GNOME?

Mar 15, 2011

I Just Recently Installed OpenSUSE with GNOME Desktop and was surprised to know that none of my NTFS Partiitions were mounted to the Linux File System. Earlier I had Installed Open SUSE with KDE Desktop and there were no problems, everything was readily mounted and i could access the NTFS Partitions. I am a Total Newbie To Linux. Give Me The Syntax To Mount The NTFS Partitions in Following Partition Table Acquired with fdisk :

Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

OpenSUSE Install :: Auto-mount Truecrypt Partitions From Fstab?

Jan 14, 2011

I have a Windows partition encrypted with TrueCrypt. If I start TrueCrypt (or RealCrypt) I can mount the partition through the GUI. before I encrypted the partition I used to auto-mount it at boot using fstab and it would appear in my places bar in the file managers. Is it possible to auto-mount truecrypt partitions from fstab?

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrade Fails Because /boot Won't Mount?

Jul 21, 2010

I was running openSUSE 11.2 on a Dell Studio with a mirrored disk. The upgrade to 11.3 went well it seemed until it got to the point of installing the new bootloader. Then it couldn't mount /boot. Otherwise it seemed to go OK though.It completed and rebooted. I see a very brief flash of the word GRUB on the reboot, but then the screen blanks and I get the BIOS messages again.How can I now install GRUB so that I can boot. I had a similar issue with 11.2 in the past, and was able to repair GRUB using 11.2's DVD's "Repair Installation" which had tools to reinstall GRUB.11.3's DVD is missing this option.I'd prefer not to do a fresh install as then I will have a lot of OS setup to repeat (Samba, Apache, Trac, etc.....)

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Mount Other Drive (NTFS, FAT32 And EXT4) On The Hard Disk?

Sep 27, 2010

Just installed opensuse 11.3 Kdeversion on my laptop. Before installing it on live mode i had a problem of accessing my other drives (NTFS, FAT32 and EXT4) which said HAL system policy...etc mounting error. I could access all drives with root privilege. I thought problem will be solver once i install opensuse on my system. How ever i was really disappointed after seeing the same problem post install. Googled around for the solution and got this link

[Code]...

After this the problem got worse now i am not able to see any of the drives in the side panel. Gone through many forum and posts all discuss about external USB HDD.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mount A USB Drive In Rc.local With /sbin/mount And UUID Instead Of Fstab?

Feb 6, 2010

I run a headless Ubuntu 8.04 server, which acts as a web, email and file server. I am sticking with 8.04 as it is a LTS release and will upgrade to the next LTS when it is released.

I have two external USB drives, that I need to mount at boot. I have been using /etc/fstab up until now, with the following entries:

Code:

However, as I gather from doing searches is quite common, occasionally I get an error during boot (causing the system to drop to a recovery shell) because the USB drives take time to wake up and the system hasn't found them by the time it reads /etc/fstab.

From doing searches, it seems there is nothing you can do to fstab to fix this, so you need to mount them using an rc.local script instead, using:

Code:

The problem is, as I have two USB drives, their /dev/sdxx location changes between boots. I thus want to use UUID codes as I do in fstab, however I haven't found anything about this.

Does anyone know how I can use the mount command and UUID to mount a drive in rc.local and what options I have to use the mount the drive with the same options that I am using in my fstab entry? Obvisouly, I can't refer back to fstab using the mount command, because then I will still get the boot error issue if they are listed in fstab. And there is no space internally for the USB drives as there is already two internal drives.

Debian Configuration :: No UUID For Some Partitions?

I have two encrypted partitions which I cannot find UUID numbers for.

/etc/crypttab looks like this:

and *sometimes this works, other times I have to edit the file and /etc/init.d/cryptdisks restart.

Obviously I should use UUIDs here and in fstab but blkid does not list those partitions

Fedora :: Merged Two FAT32 Partitions - Grub Broken?

Sep 14, 2009

I have 2 fat32 partitions that I use for things that I share between windows and fedora
I decided to merge them into one partition so I did this with cfdisk by deleting them creating and creating 1 large fat32 partition with the free space. When I boot my machine I am presented with:
grub>
I used the fedora cd to "rescue a broken system" and everything seems fine? I didn't touch any partition besides my extra fat32 partitions and my /boot partition is bootable. How do I tell this minimalistic grub to use my normal grub.conf?

Ubuntu :: Can FAT32 Partitions Cause File Browser Trouble?

Mar 22, 2009

I have just recovered my desktop Ubuntu system, thanks to SuperGrub, and Larryfroot, who pointed me to it. It had crashed due to an incomplete install to a pen drive, but prior to this I had made some changes to my partition layout, and now if such moves could cause the problems I'm having now.I wanted to be able to access my pictures, music, and projects while testing different Linux distros from CD or pen drive (DreamLinux looks much like the Mac interface, which I like, it's rated for speed, gotta try), but I've not been able to do that from any which I've tried yet. I learned somewhere that replacing the unused bulk of the OS partition with a big FAT32, and moving your files to that drive should make them accessible to most systems. I just viewed my files from the DreamLinux distro CD, so it seems to be working. I knew the action on this type of partition would be slower, and it really is when I move files to it, so is there a better way to get what I want than this?I have since had the following annoyances from Ubuntu's Nautilus file browser, and am wondering if the drive changes had anything to do with the following:

1. I am getting error messages when I try to move files to this drive through the Nautilus GUI file browser, but then these errors are wierdly negated when the file transfer is performed anyway. Well, I should be happy that it does what I ask, but where are these false error messages coming from?

2. It gets even more strange - when viewing files on Fat32 through Nautilus, in my Ubuntu hard drive partition, the file window has a banner which states "These files are on a Picture CD". Huh??? I know where I moved my files to, and they are not on CD! What is a "Picture CD" anyway?

Can anyone find a logical explanation for these weird messages, or does it look as much to you like corruption damage?

OpenSUSE Install :: Pc Not Starting After Change In Fstab Options ( Uuid )?

Jan 31, 2010

all of a sudden my pc decided no to start anymore.YOu might be aware of the ide/sata driver problem, well it was the problem. I reinstalled grub with suse dvd and it went ok. Pc working properly. But then i tried to fix this once for all and changed the fstab options from /dev-by-id to uuid (all partitions : swap, /, /home etc ).Is uuid a definite solution ?Why is the pc not able to start from there ?

Since i moved the partitions with uuid option in fstab and even after reinstalling grub the pc is not starting anymore . It gives me the boot menu (linux suse/failsafe) and then a black screen left with no keyboard nor mouse available.

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Mount NTFS Partitions?

Jun 24, 2011

I first noted a few weeks ago I couldn't mount my NTFS partitions using dolphin. At the time I was having problems with windows, so I thought - naturally, they are marked as dirty, no biggie-

However, I still can't mount them and I know they are clean. I get the error: "filesystem is neither well know nor in /proc/filesystem nor in /etc/filesystems" which is strange since I can mount just fine in the console using mount -t ntfs-3g.

OpenSUSE :: Unable To Mount Internal Partitions With Dolphin

Jul 27, 2010

I have two systems, one running 11.2 x64, and the other running 11.3 x64. on both systems, I've lost the ability to mount internal partitions "on-the-fly" from the Dolphin panel.Trying to mount via Dolphin has always given me this error on the 11.3 system, but only recently started happening in the 11.2 system after a recent "zypper dup" (using the "Stable" KDE 4.4 repo).If others are experiencing this same issue, please let me know so I can file a bug report. Please note that the error only occurs for internal partitions, and external drives work fine.

OpenSUSE Network :: NFS Mount Of XFS Fails On 11.3

Jan 12, 2011

I've just upgraded to 11.3 (64 bit) and the nfs client does not quite work. I have 3 mounts I try to make, and 2 out of 3 work. The third seems to mount, but shows an empty directory. There are no errors in /var/log/messages on the 11.3 client or the server. The only difference between the 3 mounts that I can see is that the failing mount is of an xfs system. The other two happen to be ext3. Is that visible to the nfs client? Or is that a red herring? I can still mount all 3 just fine from my other opensuse 11.2 systems.

For info, the server is running opensuse 10.3...
Code:
nas:~ # uname -a
Linux nas 2.6.22.19-0.2-default #1 SMP 2008-12-18 10:17:03 +0100 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

OpenSUSE :: Device Notifier Mount Fails?

Jul 16, 2011

I'm using OpenSuse 11.4 (x86_64) with KDE 4.

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.

Fedora Installation :: Install Fails Due To Not Being Able To Mount

Dec 27, 2010

I am saddened that I can't install any Linux distro with ease on my HP m8530f computer which runs on a m2n78-la motherboard. It has a Phenom CPU, 6 SATA ports and probably a fakeRaid (at least that's what I guess is causing problem). The Fedora 14 Desktop install goes all the way to the end and then I get a fail message due to not being able to mount /dev/mapper/xxxxx.

P.S. the motherboard only has SATA mode or disabled for HardDrive mode and no any other options. Seems like this is an HP custom made motherboard from Asus hence the limited options in Bios setup.
