OpenSUSE Install :: Read All Others Already ... Error: Mount: Unknown Filesystem Type 'crypto_LUKS'
Feb 21, 2010
Formated new drive with ext3 on external drive on Suse 11.1 When upgraded to 11.2, drive was not connected... Could not get mounted after that... Set up another boot drive, could not get to mount. Found post with following:
Error as follows: mount: unknown filesystem type 'crypto_LUKS' Have also got to another point where superblock was incorrect. I can use terminal, but am not a linux guru... Have looked at other posts under luks, but can not find a solution.
i am trying to compile kernel 2.6.23 on Fedora 12 After fixing a few bugs (getline error, %dil ,etc) i was able to compile the kernel made initramfs img using dracut updated grub and then booted up the new kernel 2.6.23 but it fails to boot with following error mount: unknown filesystem type 'ext4'
I installed Ubuntu Server 9.10 in a virtual machine, and I'm trying to install the VMware Tools but I can't mount the installer CD: $ sudo mount /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom mount: unknown filesystem type 'iso9660'
I recently upgrade my armel NAS from etch to squeeze. During the partitioning step of the installation I intentionally left unmounted the data partition (900GB formatted XFS) but after the installation I'm not able to mount it.
I edited the fstab file adding the last line
And tried a mount but I get the message
So i noticed throught lsmod that I don't have the module for xfs
Tried installing xfsprogs but it didn't helped. So I searched for xfs-modules but seems it doesn't exists for armel architecture. Am I right? What does it means? That XFS is not supported in armel Squeeze? Assumed I can't transfer/backup 900GB of partition, is there a way to convert it on-the-fly to a supported filesystem format?
I dont know anything about linux and just been assigned to amount a drive to it. here's what i did so far: Version of Linux using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.3 (Tikanga) [root]# mount -t auto /dev/sdb1 /tmp/archive mount: unknown filesystem type 'ntfs'
when checking the /proc/filesystems, i noticed that 'ntfs' is not listed there, several forum suggested i try running 'modprobe ntfs'. If that is not found, you'll need a kernel with ntfs support. i'm so lost, where to i get the modprobe ntfs
I had windows with ntfs I installed ubuntu. All ok. Gurb with 2 os, can ran windows and ubuntu and can mount ntfs partition in ubuntu I installed debian with lvm over ubuntu partition. I can't mount ntfs partition now, and windows doesn't appears in gurb
I have double boot (windows7 and Opensuse) on my laptop.
My problem is when try to login Opensuse says Read only file system.(While booting a lot of things FAILS(written red) because of Read only file system). So i can't login.
Cause of this problem is want to reach my Opensuse filesystem from windows7.I installed Ext2fsd software to windows7.After installed software can see my opensuse filesystem.But it looks empty from windows7.So uninstalled the software.
After that day try to login my Opensuse.While booting alot of thing fails to load it says "FAILED".and when entered my password after entering my username cant login it says ..... Read Only File System.
How can i make the filesystem Read/write permissions to my opensuse operating system.
I can't use any command beceause can't login. (I will try to boot with Opensuse Dvd)
I am experiencing a problem with virtual box 4. Did an install from binary, and everything went ok and virtual box launches, but once I have created the virtual disk and the want to run it, I get an error, and the log says that it has to do with the ext4 filesystem and has a known kernel bug. How does one go about sorting this out. Here with the log from virtual box.

I changed the first line of /etc/fstab in an attempt to get rid of an annoying message "mount: unknown filesystem type 'static'". All I did was put a "#" on the first line .... changing the original from:
I had installed ubuntu 11.04 on my system along with windows vista. After a few days, i decided to remove ubuntu so i just logged into windows and formatted the ubuntu partition using the windows partitioner, then extended my main c: drive to span the whole disk so that i was left with a single partition with only windows vista on it.Later when trying to restart my system couldn't log back into windows.I kept getting a prompt sayinggrub rescue>After googling around a bit i shrinked and created another partition the disk again and installed ubuntu on it again.still. =/GRUB doesn't show any windows entry.I noticed something strange though that when i tried viewing my partitions using parted i didnt see any filesystem type listed besides my windows partition (/dev/sda3). I doubt that is why GRUB does not show any windows entry.Also i manually tried to boot into windows from the grub prompt using commands...root(hd0,3)chainloader +1bootbut it says 'invalid signature'Did i somehow corrupted my windows partition during resizing and installing/un-installing? Plus i also booted with the windows installation dvd and when i typed bootmgr /fixbootit said something like no valid filesystem found.
Background: My mother's HP laptop had Ubuntu and Vista on it, Ubuntu my brother's doing. He decided he wanted to take off Ubuntu yesterday (he had forgotten the password), and deleted the partition that it was contained within. The computer now boots to this error.
Inventory: We no longer have the install disk for Windows Vista, he cannot tell me what version he used of Ubuntu, what partition it was on, any of the specs for the machine, or generally any information about the system. All I am aware of is that error on the boot-up screen. I have nothing else to work with.
I would like to remove Grub, and Ubuntu, and leave Windows intact (the request of the owner of the computer), but I have no idea what commands I could use to get rid of either when I can't access Windows, or how to properly remove them if I did access Windows.
I'm trying to mount an external DVD +RW Drive so I can burn a directory from my Linux Server to disk. I think I've figured out how to mount the drive, but it only works when there's a disk with data in the drive. When I enter mount /dev/scd1 /mnt I'm able to read from the drive, no problem. When I try to do the same thing, however, with a blank disk I get the following message: "mount: you must specify a filesystem type" So I'm assuming I need to prepare the disk somehow. I've verified that the dvd+rw-tools package is installed on the RH server but I'm not sure what the next step is.
I just got an Acer netbook Aspire One. I put the Ubuntu remix on it successfully, and was using it for several days without problems. Now all of a sudden when I turn on my computer I get a grub error message with a command prompt. I've tried following the direction to restore grub but I'm getting stuck right away on the command to mount my ubuntu partition. After I type "sudo mount /dev/sda4 /mnt", I keep getting the error message "mount: you must specify the filesystem type."
I am doing the DNS configuration for the first time. Error in named configuration:

having a bit of a problem here. I woke up this morning, and my computer was froze. It does this from time to time, the monitor won't respond and wake up, flashing lights in the keyboard etc. Well anyways, I turned it off, then turned it back on, and it says:
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.
i have changed from windows xp to ubuntu 9.10 in monday but yesterday i turned my pc on and when i get in my session all get freeze, i waited for an hour and it was the same so i turned it off pressing the on/off button of the cpu, when i restarted it it saysGrub loading...Grub failed: unknown filesystemGrub rescuei dont knoe what to do.PD:i removed windows, only ubuntu is in the PC
I have a laptop with windows7 and ubuntu installed. When I installed Ubuntu it created 4 partitions (2 for swap and 2 for ubuntu). Yesterday, a friend of mine deleted one of the partitions (swap+linux) because they weren't being used (weren't even mounted) and he thought I could use the free space. I kept on using the laptop but today I had to reboot it. Instead of getting the usual grub menu I got this:
error: unknown filesystem. grub rescue>
I tried using the solutions I found in lots of posts related with this matter but I couldn't fix it. What I tried was this:
#show you the available partitions ls #look for boot files on the partitions ls (hd0,1)/boot
The problem is that it doesn't recognise the commands 'linux', 'boot' or 'initrd'...
I had win7 on my laptop. Before sometime I install Ubuntu 9.10 and it worked fine. Bur later that I resize the partition using third party software. Now when I restart the system it is giving me an error GRUB Loading error: unknown filesystem grub rescue> I am not able to access the harddrive. I am very new to ubuntu.
I have been using ubuntu 9.10 for a month. i have it installed on a 5GB separate partition of a 80 GB hard disk with my XP installed on a C drive(a separate partition ofcourse) then i had to remove it from my PC so i boot my PC with a partition manager cd and directly formatted that partition of 5GB from that software now i am having this error on my boot of PC....
grub rescue> error:unknown filesystem
I have tried a lot of commands here on this screen and nothing happens...i want to go to my XP .... and can't loose my XP OS and other data as well on different partitions.....
there was ubuntu on my pc operating system but it is strange for me so i wanted to instal windows 7 on my pc. I inserted Window 7 disk and started to install it and i formated Ubuntu but the disk what i was using was damaged and it could not complite the installation and now i dont have any programs in my pc. Problem is that i got another disk but i cant boot anymore my pc, i select drive and stuff and then comes error.
error: unknown filesystem grub rescue- i tryed different commands but those didnt worked.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and am having a major issue with it not booting. My PC worked fine yesterday but when I tried to boot this morning I get the error "error: unknown filesystem" and under that I get the "grub rescue>" prompt.
At first I thought this was just a problem with Grub that would be easy fixed so I put in my Ubuntu USB and loaded it up in live mode. But when I try to look at my file system from within the live environment I can't seem to see any of my files.
I have looked at the drive in GParted and my main file system (/dev/sda1) shows up as 'unknown', while the swap partition (/dev/sda5) shows up as it should. I have also looked at the drive with the Disk Utility and the SMART Status says the disk is healthy.
I am really concerned about this as currently the system is totally unable to load, not only that but I am also unable to recover my data from the drive which is my main concern as I havent done a backup for quite some time and I have a lot of python code that I have been working on that I really need to get back.
Has anyone got any idea of what to do and how I might be able to sort this out or at the very least recover all my data. I can't understand why this has happened I have not made any changes to the system recently other than installing the updates that came through yesterday. This is a really urgent issue for me and any help will be very appreciated.
I had dual boot with windows 7 and ubuntu 10.04 running, and working. In my grub menu on startup I could choose (among things) something called Vista loader. Dont know why, since I installed windows 7 and not vista. Could also choose windows7 and ubuntu, both worked.
Today I accidentally pressed the vista loader, and now I get the following error upon boot: Error unknown filesystem grub rescue
So the next thing I did was download the latest ubuntu and boot from live cd. I followed instructions [url] on how to purge grub2 and reinstall it, and did so with out any problems. However the same error remains when I boot.
I just recently decided to install Ubuntu alongside windows 7 64bit. I was working fine until I decided to increase the partition size of the unused space to take up some space of an unused partition I had made earlier. When I tried to reboot windows I got the error - error: unknown fileystem. grub rescue> I have tried a windows repair disc with no results, it cannot find any problem with the startup routine and I have looked at many different tutorials and information about how to restore grub using command from the grub rescue menu. Ubuntu 10.10
