When I boot the linux kernel 2.6 , I was kicked out and request to run fsck manually. After running fsck -y /dev/vg00/lvol3 and /dev/vg00/lvol4 and reboot, I still get the same error and request me to run fsck . I attach the console output in here .
I have a server with Debian on it that I regularly reboot after upgrades. Sometimes (on schedule) fsck will check a disk when the computer is booting. With the exception of sitting in front of the console to observe the fsck, how can I determine the difference between a problematic halt and an fsck (besides waiting out the fsck, hoping it is an fsck)?When I send the computer down to reboot, I will usually have a terminal window open pinging the computer so I know when it has come back up. My first thoughts drifted to fantasizing about hacking fsck to respond to pings with some special magic byte so you could tell via ping that a computer was fsck-ing, but I'm thinking there have got to be easier ways..
My ubuntu stops when mounting system hdd. The screen display the following messages :

I suspect the disk manager pysdm that i had just installed today and it had crash during the previous session. The /etc/fstab file does not exist anymore and i cant rename the fstab.bak because the disk is read-only even for my root user
Today for strange reason, one of my Ubuntu 64 bit server Linux VM failed to start ? it stopped in the FSCK scan status with the error as attached. few days back I've added new hard disk successfully and format it as sdb5 without problem.
I was running 11.0 and it stalled in the middle of a number of updates. On reboot I now get (if I remember correctly) Error 15: File not found.I managed to get my hands on a 11.0 live cd and started trying to fix grub. However, when I try mounting the harddrive using "mount /dev/sda1" I got
Code: can`t find sda1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt" gives
We have a server for which the root password had been lost, and there were no other user accounts set up. Yesterday evening I attempted to reset the root password by booting from the install CD and using VI to clear the root password in the passwd and shadow files. I then rebooted, and the system has halted with an 'FSCK failed. Please repair manually and reboot' error, with a prompt to 'Enter root password' below. But of course the root password isn't known (I had expected it to blank after editing the passwd and shadow files, but it doesn't work), so I have no way of logging on.
i have a ubuntu 10 server (as server LAMP) , i was trying to repair a couple of unix files with fsck command on directory, thinking it would apply only that directory, but it affected all system, in th end it says: "file system has changes, restart ubuntu", then services go down, after some directories fail, restart funtion do anything... i switched on again, but at start show error.
I got another ubuntu and installed damaged hard disc, but, i can see file sytem, i has been trying to repaired with TestDisk but i can't...
i want to recover mysql database at least, but a don't know what to do.... how a fsck get damaged SO
I was editing my fsck at etc/fstab/ after removing a hard drive and i think i commented out the wrong drive . now i just get a blank screen on boot. I have the ability to use my ubuntu cd for a recovery console, live desktop, etc.
I have a problem partitioning an Hard Disk Drive on a server, and I hope someone can help me with this. Here is the system configuration: Operating System Linux localhost.localdomain 184.108.40.206-64.fc11.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Sep 25 04:43:32 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Hardware: RAID bus controller: Hewlett-Packard Company Smart Array G6 controllers (rev 01)
The system mounts one hard disk (120 Gb) with the OS, and four 1.5Tb Hard Disks mounted on RAID 10 for a total of ~3 Tb I need to create several partitions on this RAID drive, but I have some trouble doing it. I need a total of 10 partitions of different sizes:
I have a centOS 5 box with 3ware 8 port raid cards.I run fsck.ext3 -y /dev/sdb1 and it shows as clean.But after writing to the FS for about 2 minutes, it becomes read-only.When I umont -l /data, and run the fsck I get that another program is using the system an I should wait.If I reboot the server , the array comes back as clean.
I have a 2TB file-system and when the machine reboots it fails the fsck, halts and goes into maintenance mode.Stats: I have have RHEL 5, 2.6.18 kernel, the file-system is an ext3. The file-system is on an EMC AX4 connected with fiber channel HBA.So far my reading tells me this should work because under 2.6 4TB is OK. Any ideas why this fails?If I take it out of the fstab file and mount it manually the boot is OK and the file-system behaves well. I can change the fsck check option in the fstab to 0 but I don't think I should have too. Everything I read says that 2TB ext3 file-systems are OK.
all is well on my headless Lucid server until a recent apt-get upgrade && shutdown -R now ... it did not come back up? after i moved a screen to the other side of the house, i found fcsk waiting for input during the boot process errors on / ... (I)gnore / (F)ix " ...so i had to attach a keyboard just to push <F> i could change /etc/fstab so it never runs fsck, but this doesn't seem wise. how can i make it <F>ix automatically ? ( or maybe after Xsec )
My company support a client with an old Redhead server " Linux version 2.6.9-5.ELsmp [URL] (gcc version 3.4.3 20041212 (Red Hat 3.4.3-9.EL4)) #1 SMP Wed Jan 5 19:30:39 EST 2005" My IT department wants to move this old server to a VMware machine and I'm trying to check if this project can fly. Me my self never worked on an old Linux server there for my first question is can I upgrade the kernel with the command yum -y install kernel..... and when I'm done I'm still going to have the old kernel just in case?
Keyboard repeat doesn't seem to work correctly on my system (Xubuntu, 9.10). Holding a key down ends in the repeat function stopping after a certain point, and at different times each time. Also, editing text fields is tricky because the field currently highlighted reverts to its previous value if I don't hit enter fast enough (I have to type new values into a notepad and copy and paste it quickly into the field).
When I go to boot up, I ususally have a failedattempt or two at logging in, because my autorepeat rate on the keyboard will often give me morethan one character when I depress a key. SoI put my password in wrong and get a failed attempt.After I log in I usually run:kbdrate -r 6 -d 500This gets my autorepeat rate down to 6 char per secondand delay time to 500 to where I can actually use the keyboard. Is there some place I can run those commands duringboot, so that I don't have the failed and repeated
I'm trying to create new RAM image file to get my server load raid1 module upon start, I was following redhat documentation & it suggested to use the following command mkinited --with=raid1 inited-raid1-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r) However after running this command I'm getting this message No Kernel available for 'inited-2.6.18-128.el5"
I have a .wav file (a drum beat) that I want to use to play along with. The problem I am encountering is that I can't get either VLC or Windows Media Player (both on Windows 7) to play the file in repeat mode gaplessly, which makes it useless since it's a drum beat and it needs to be precise.
Is there some program on either Windows 7 or linux that you know can do this?
Some Flash games don't work very well on Linux because when you hold down a key (such as one of the cursor keys) the Flash player sends the game multiple KeyDown and KeyUp events, leaving the game unable to tell the difference between a user holding a key or a user tapping a key quickly. (On other platforms it seems that typematic repeat generates multiple KeyDown events but not KeyUp events.)
Anyway, to work around this problem, I go to System->Preferences->Keyboard and disable "Key presses repeat when key is held down" when I want to play a Flash game, then put it back afterwards. I do this often enough that I'd like to set up some shortcut keys to change the setting. I figured out the following commands to turn it off and on again:
My problem is that when I have tried entering these on the command-line (in a gnome-terminal), X-windows seems to get confused and behaves as though I'm holding down the enter key. It doesn't stop if I press enter again. I tried pressing ctrl-alt-f1 to switch to a text console and it worked fine, but when I pressed ctrl-alt-f7 to go back to X it still behaved as though I was holding down enter. I had to press ctrl-alt-backspace to reset X before it would return to normal. I *think* it happens in particular when changing the setting from true to false. I'm running Karmic Koala with all the updates.
I have been trying to repeat the first two rows in a Calc document but I keep getting an error.
Here are the instructions that I used.
Printing Rows or Columns on Every Page If you have a sheet that is so large that it will be printed multiple pages, you can set up rows or columns to repeat on each printed page. As an example, If you want to print the top two rows of the sheet as well as the first column (A)on all pages, do the following:
1.Choose Format - Print Ranges - Edit. The Edit Print Ranges dialog appears.
2.Click the icon at the far right of the Rows to repeat area. The dialog shrinks so that you can see more of the sheet.
3.Select the first two rows and, for this example, click cell A1 and drag to A2. In the shrunk dialog you will see $1:$2. Rows 1 and 2 are now rows to repeat.
4.Click the icon at the far right of the Rows to repeat area. The dialog is restored again.
5.If you also want column A as a column to repeat, click the icon at the far right of the Columns to repeat area.
6.Click column A (not in the column header).
7.Click the icon again at the far right of the Columns to repeat area.
Rows to repeat are rows from the sheet. You can define headers and footers to be printed on each print page independently of this in Format - Page.
