Server :: RHEL5 System - FTP Transfer Fails After About 1 GB

May 6, 2010

I have a RHEL 5 system running vsftpd. If I do a put to the box, files larger than 1 GB fail around the 1 GB point. Smaller files don't have a problem. If I do a get from the box there is no problem. Both the FTP server and client are plugged into a Netgear switch. I'm trying to create an FTP server and web server so my friends and I can upload our vacation pictures. Ultimately I want my friends to be able to access my server. Right now I'm just trying to make it work between my two machines.

Ubuntu :: E2fsck Fails Device Or Resource Busy

Mar 3, 2011

My son's netbook with 10.10 netbook remix failed to boot. Using the Live install CD and Gparted I couldn't repair the EXT4 filesytem. The error reported was:

e2fsck : Device or resource busy while trying to open ...

After trying many solutions and web searching I decided to try a different live CD and tried Knoppix 6.4.4

Using the command interface I typed e2fsck -v -f -y /dev/xxxx (xxxx = your device). This worked first time and the machine rebooted without hesitation.

CentOS 5 Networking :: SCP Fails To Transfer Files?

Apr 11, 2009

I have two CentOS 5 servers that I'm trying to transfer files between. They're on the same LAN switch, same subnet and everything. So far, everything I've attempted has failed, but scp still exits with a return code of 0. It only displays a line of *** and exits immediately. It's almost as if the file transfers instantly, but no file actually gets copied. Here is the verbose output from scp:

Fedora Hardware :: F12 Boot Fails - Short Block Read

Jun 11, 2010

My F12 installation, which was installed on an HP tx2500z laptop and has been operating relatively well since January, now fails to boot after a frozen screen precipitated a forced shutdown. On reboot, I was dropped into a shell with the error message "Error reading block 1546 (Attempt to read block from file system resulted in a short read) while getting next inode from scan." recommending to run fsck manually. During the fsck run, after a substantial number of Pass 1 inode count corrections, the "Error reading block" message reappeared, with the question "Ignore error<y>" to which I answered "y".

fsck responded with "Force rewrite<y>". Since I did not know what would be written here, I said "no". I then forced shutdown, rebooted into Windows, and searched for further guidance. One suggestion was to run fsck -y on the affected partition. My laptop drive has four partitions, the first two being allocated to Windows and an HP supplied repair partition. sda3 is a tiny boot partition (100 MB), and sda4/5 is the LVM remainder.

fsck -y /dev/sda3 told me the boot partition was fine.
fsck -y /dev/sda4 stopped immediately and asked "Could this be a zero-length file partition?". Given the ext3 structure, I suppose the correct answer is yes.
fsck -y /dev/sda5 told me fsck.LVM2_Member: not found.

Following this, I then attempted again to reboot, and ran fsck without options. Once again, during Pass 1, Block 1546 exhibited the short read error, again asking about a rewrite - which I once again answered no. Pass 1 completed with another substantial number of inode count corrections, and Pass 2 started - immediately generating the message:

'passwd' in /etc/pam.d (65556) has deleted/unused node 7831. Clear<y>

After some hesitancy, I said "yes", and of course a second similar message appeared. I was brave enough to answer "yes" six more times, with the first two referring to /etc/pam.d inodes, and the next four referring to /etc/security/console.apps inodes. The eighth message, also similar, referred to inodes elsewhere - but by now I did not dare to continue and forced shutdown. Is this repairable, and if so, how?

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.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade RH9 To F10 - Install Fails - Installer Fails Media Check Due To "errors"

I am trying to upgrade RH9 to F10. I have downloaded dvd iso image i386. The SHA1 integrity check passes. The installer fails media check due to "errors". I did an independent verification of the DVD and zero errors found. Download was from Fedora's own torrent, so files should be verified anyway. If I bypass the media check I get the message : Running anaconda the Fedora system installer - please wait.....

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

Hardware :: DVD Automount Fails With "CDROM Not Ready Yet" And "unaligned Transfer"

Nov 18, 2009

Recently my Kubuntu Jaunty installation has taken to not mounting previously OK DVDs.

What I see upon insertion of a disc is the automount fail:

This persists across discs and across reboots.

I looked around the net and I at least found some evidence of the "unaligned transfer" problem; supposedly this happens when something tries to access the drive before it's ready, and (at least for some kernels) can get the responsible module in a permanently confused state. However, I'm not accessing the disc manually, some automounter or something is accessing it -- I don't even know what.

I'm using Kubuntu Jaunty with KDE 4.3.2. Kernel string from bootup:

OpenSUSE :: X Server Fails In Runlevel 5

Server :: Mysqladmin Fails On New Install?

May 11, 2010

I have two new Fedora 12 installs and both fail to complete the install and configuration of MySQL. When I run mysql_install_db I get:mysql_install_db --verbose Installing MySQL system tables... OK Filling help tables... OK

To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy support-files/mysql.server to the right place for your system

Please remember to set a password for the MySQL root User

To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h server.domain_name password 'new-password'
Alternatively you can run:

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: X Server Fails To Load?

Jan 18, 2010

I had a dual boot Kubuntu 9.04 - FC 11 and decided to upgrade to Kubuntu 9.10. Recalling that I had issues with my ATI card drivers when I installed Kubuntu8.10 on my laptop, I decided to install the latest ATI Catalyst drivers. After the installation was complete I received a message warning me that if the X server fails to load I should run "aticonfig --initial -f". Indeed the X Server didn't load (after I logged in the screen flushed and went black). So I reinstalled Kubuntu 8.10 from a CD I without formating the respective partition. But the problem perists, X server fails to load. Even worse my menu.lst file has been changed and I can't boot FC11.

The company I work for has a Dell Poweredge 6850 that keeps pretty much everything (databases, websites, etc).

The server had a Virtual Drive created from 2 Physical Drives. Since the HDD space was getting low, we got a new drive, inserted it, formatted and rebooted the system.

But the system now refuses to start, giving an FAILED message, something related to EXT2 partition that cannot be read at /dev/hda1.

The problem: When I try to have the 2 nodes (nod1 and nod2) join the cluster via luci's web interface, I get
"Starting cman: Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details."
When I check code...

Now. I know that cman service is installed. I even tried removing and reinstalling the whole thing, dependencies and all, but it just won't start and I've run out of ideas.
