Slackware :: Auto-mounting USB Devices Stopped Working?

Mar 29, 2010

When I installed slackare 13 it detected usb drives and cameras automaticallyow it doesn't. I am runnning a 13.0 system, not current, so I have only applied the updates in that branch (iirc including a new kernel).nowadays when i plug a device in it does not seem to be detected by HAL (i.e not in KDE).However the device is listed if you use the command "lsusb" and the computer obviously knows it has been plugged in as there is a relevant entry in dmesg.Sorry for the generallised nature of the post, but I don't really know anything about HAL or how it can have stopped working

Slackware :: X Stopped Working - Failed To Activate Core Devices

Nov 18, 2010

Booting up this morning, no problem. But I accidentally let my laptop go into suspend mode, which doesn't work, so I had to force a restart (Suspend mode on my laptop won't allow me to wake it up again). Now, on rebooting, X doesn't work. I usually boot to RL3 then use startx. Now it just flashes the screen then gives me this error -

(EE) Error compiling keymap (server-0)
(EE) XKB: Couldn't compile keymap
XKB: Failed to compile keymap
Keyboard initialization failed. This could be a missing or incorrect setup of xkeyboard-config.
Fatal server error:
Failed to activate core devices .....
Fatal server error:
Failed to activate core devices.

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support at [URL] for help. Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information. If I su - to root and then do "init 4", I get to xdm, and I can log in. X then starts, but with no sound, wrong keymaps, launchers not working; all sorts of things wrong. If I startx as root I get a normal desktop. I have tried copying root's xinitrc to /home/spoovy, but makes no difference.

Ubuntu :: SMB Suddenly Stopped Auto Mounting?

May 3, 2010

I have my "documents" folder pointing to a Samba share on a 9.10 server. (Client is 64 bit 9.10). In /etc/fstab I have

// /home/sean/Documents cifs credentials=/home/sean/.smbcredentials,uid=1000,gid=1000

This always used to mount automatically and has suddenly stopped. Same result if I use smbfs instead of cifs. I have worked around this by adding noauto and then mounting it in /etc/rc.local.

Anyone else had this and fixed it so that the share mounts at boot rather than login. I do have some cron tasks that require this to be mounted and assume they will fail unless I login immediately after a reboot.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Sound Devices Stopped Working?

Jan 8, 2011

Im running Ubuntu 10.10 and a couple of days ago, my usb sound deviced stopped working, possibly because of a recent update, as I didn't change something on my system as far as I can recall.My internal sound card still works just fine whatsoever, but my external devices,

E-MU 0202 USB
Logitech USB Headset

which also used to work flawlessly in the past, don't play audio anymore.Although they are still detected and selectable in the PulseAudio Volume Control.I can exclude hardware problems because everything is fine in WinXP.

Ubuntu :: Auto Ethernet Stopped Working / What To Do?

Apr 22, 2011

my wired auto ethernet stopped working. It doesn't appear to be my machine or the hub as the connection is fine using windows on the computer.I'm a bit clueless on the Networking front in Ubuntu. I've brought up the Network Connections box and checked that the Mac address is correct (and it is). I've tried it on Lubuntu and Openbox, but still no luck. The only oddity I see is that the Network Connections box says that the auto ethernet connection has never been used .

Slackware :: External USB Hard Drive Auto-mounting Error

Nov 29, 2009

Just installed Slackware 13 this morning. It's been a long time since I last tried Linux, but Slack works (a lot easier than Slack 8 did back when I last used it!) quite well. I'm using the XFCE desktop and it's smooth as silk except for one odd problem-I cannot get any of my USB drives to mount. I just plugged in my Lexar 4GB USB flash drive and received an error message. Here's from /var/log/messages from when I initally plugged in the drive (I have a 500GB WD MyBook USB external drive that is always plugged in):

Any ideas or suggestions of what to look at? I'm not familiar with HAL in Linux although I've seen plenty of discussion about it and have an idea of what it's supposed to (or break! ).

Ubuntu :: Automatic Partition Mounting Stopped Working After Upgrade?

May 4, 2010

I'm an Ubuntu/Kubuntu user for a while now and i hav Kubuntu 9.10 with ubuntu-desktop installed.

I have two hard disks and i had one of the partitions mounted automatically while startup. I did that by reading the first method posted here

HTML Code: [URL]

It was working good till i did the distribution update to Kubuntu 10.04. After the upgrade while startup, a message is displayed on the screen saying


"Disk to be mounted at /media/miscellaneous is not ready or is not there. Continue waiting or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery"

I dont know what to do. I have to skip and then mount the partition manually. I think the entry i added in



is still there.

Ubuntu :: Auto Run (auto Exec) A Script On Mounting A Device?

Mar 16, 2010

I would like to exec a script whenever a user mount a device. The device could be an internal device (for example a partition on a second hard disk) or a removable one (for example a usb hard disk). The script must have sudo capabilities even if the user is not included in the admin group. Is it possible?

The specific question:
I would like to add acl option to a device whenever it is mounted.
I tried fstab but it's changing the behaviour of nautilus see:

[URL]... so I would like to create a script with the command

sudo mount -o remount,acl /media/data
and auto execute it any time data is mounted.

Slackware :: FF 3.6.4 -> FF 3.6.6 Then Flashplayer Stopped Working?

Jun 30, 2010

Yesterday I used [0.7.3] from to update Slackware 13.1, 32 bit version. I got Firefox 3.6.6, installed it, moved the to the new plugins directory. Now I can't play utube videos. about: plugins says that flashplayer is installed and working. Grabbed flash from Adobe website, overwrote the existing one, still no joy. Asked in the Firefox user forum. Answer 'same thing happen to me -- Windows Vista' ...I'm not an advanced user. So, is this a Slackware problem, an Adobe problem, or a Firefox problem? I'm asking here because y'all are more likely to point me to a solution. I've always been able to grab the Linux version of Flash from Adobe website and install it

Slackware :: Hulu Stopped Working / Fix It?

Oct 22, 2010

I'm on Firefox 3.6.11 with Flash 10.2 d161 on Slackware 13.1 32-bit. Hulu stopped working sometime this past week. (Actually when it stopped working I was still on the previous versions of Firefox and Flash - I upgraded 3.6.10 to 3.6.11 to see if it would help.) Worked fine before that. I've tried Firefox safe-mode, disabling add-ons and using default theme and none of this matters. Flash works fine and Hulu worked fine before a week ago.

Slackware :: Adobe Acrobat Has Stopped Working?

Oct 29, 2010

I have 13.0 64 with alien's multilib packages.

Adobe Acrobat has stopped working. If I try it from the command line I get


./acroread: No such file or directory

I have tried re-installing but there is no difference and the file is clearly there. Is it possible a recent upgrade of a slackware patch might have caused this?

Slackware :: Flash Mysteriously Stopped Working

Feb 16, 2010

With Firefox 3.6 from the official repository, and the flash-player-plugin from installed here. It's worked fine up until now, where websites either claim it's not installed, or show a blank box instead.NoScript is installed on my Firefox, but given that on fully trusted pages (of which there are very few) it still happens, and nothing else blocks Flash besides AdBlock and Firefox's own settings (both checked too) I suspect the plugin.I also tried downloading direct from Adobe, and plonking the in /usr/lib / mozilla/plugins and making a backup of the original one (The one provided from Slacky's package) but to no avail.So it seems to be the plugin, but for inexplicable reasons.Would anyone happen to be able to explicate this inexplicability?

Slackware :: Auto Mount Is No Longer Working On -current?

Mar 5, 2011

I stuck a flash drive into a usb port this morning, and the device notifier failed to show. I opened Dolphin, and I noticed that nothing that should be mounted was showing up in the left pane. I always have seen my Windows install, as well as another partition that has Slackware. I can navigate to /mnt/vista and its all there. I can also go to /mnt/Slackware and its all there. However, the flash drive does not show.I can manually mount the drive and all is well as root. I can't even tell you when this started. I am using Alien's 4.6 KDE packages with all the deps. I just opened mc and checked everything. HAL is disabled and has been for a long time. All did work after disabling HAL.Its not just the flash drive, it effects anything - music cds, blank media, nothing works automagically. Google hasn't

Slackware :: NTFS Drive Stopped Working - Still Boots Fine

Sep 30, 2010

I have had my computer set to dual boot Windows 7 for months now with no issue. Now today when I logged on to Slackware (13.1 x86_64) it suddenly stopped recognizing that my Windows 7 drive has anything on it. Fdisk cannot see any partitions anymore. Yet I can reboot the computer and run Windows 7 off it just fine. The windows drive should be /dev/sdb with sdb1 being its system reserved partition and sdb2 being the actual Windows partition.

Dmesg sees that it is there like my other drives, but it appears that the Windows 7 partition is not unaccessable to anything in Linux.

How could this work yesterday yet today it doesn't? I didn't change anything.

Slackware :: VirtualBox Stopped Working For Non Root User After Updates

Oct 21, 2010

I haven't used my VB for a few weeks however all of a sudden it refuses to work for my normal non-root user. It's almost as if it can't find libraries in the /opt/VirtualBox directory. Initially it refused to start completely so I linked the required libs into /usr/lib64 ( yip real hack. Then it started but a vm would not start, and comes up with an error about a missing lib again which is definitely there. My non-root user is in the vb group and nothing besides system updates has changed. vb 3.2.10 slack64-current.

Slackware :: USB Headset - Volume Control On Them Stopped Working - Sound Works - Microphone Doesn't

Oct 29, 2010

When I started using Slackware I've been using USB headset. Everything ran perfectly fine. They got recognized, I could use all of it's functions and so on. Unfortunately volume control on them stopped working so I had to service them, and like in every third world country, yay I need to wait minimum three weeks just so they can press a button and say "Yup, they don't work".

I bought normal headset to use them while other one is getting fixed, and didn't expect any problems with them considering they are "old" technology, normal audio input and output.

Now problem is following, sound works fine but microphone doesn't. Once I managed to "fix" it by switching audio input from mic to something else and then back to mic, now even that doesn't work. Another... "problem" is if I leave my USB webcam plugged in while booting computer, there is no sound at all, ether on line ones or USB ones but I can easily solve that problem by unplugging webcam, rebooting and plugging it back in later.

Now everything ran fine until my computer shutdown while I was sleeping. Don't know why, but it started happening recently, don't see anything smart in logs so I assume its... something, read it could be cache, HDD, temperature and so on but since logs don't write down anything smart... will deal with it some other time.

When I talk I can actually hear myself on the headset, which probably means that they work. If I put mic boost all the way up, I can hear myself perfectly clear, but somehow... seems that that information just doesn't get to Slackware, well it gets somewhat considering that it reacts to me adjusting mic boost on KMix, but everything else... no.

Arecord doesn't record anything, TS register as microphone isn't plugged in at all, skype doesn't get any input ether.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mounting Devices In Suse 11.2?

Dec 13, 2009

I came into this strange behavior related to mounting DVDs and/or CDs in SuSE 11.2 : after inserting a DVD intro the DVD unit, and mounting it through the "device notifier" applet, I find the disk mounted in /media under a folder named after the disk label (as expected) BUT ... the folder is in fact padded with blanks after the name found as label for the disk. For ex.: I have a DVD called DVD_ROCK2 The mounting is made in "/media/DVD_ROCK2 " (the folder created at mounting time in /media has 14 characters (if I counted them correctly) instead of the only 8 from the name of the disk This does affect my application "cdcollect", which crashes when it encounters a mounted disk which contains spaces in it's label.

I tried to adjust cdcollect, by modifying it's dources (trying to "trim" the name readed as disk-label, but with no results; anyway I am not good at C#, and even kinda hate this language, so... I'd prefer a solution coming from Linux's point of view: what changed in the mounting system from Suse 11.1 till now ? what can I do to change this way of mounting the disks ?I cannot state this happens with every single one of my DVDs; the ones wich are mounted this way are generally written in the same PC, in older versions of SuSE (11.0 and 11.1). Unfortunatelly, I had an older written disk (way back on SuSE 9.x) which does not behave this way (it is mounted in a folder with the name created exactly as the label is, without the padded spaces).

Programming :: Mounting Multiple Devices To Root?

May 16, 2010

I'm trying to build a custom setup that requires a flash drive and a CD to both be mounted to root. Applications, boot data, and other static directories are on the CD, while /home, /opt, and /tmp are on the flash drive. Is there a special option I can enter into fstab to allow this? If not, I intend to modify my kernel to allow this, but I'll need to find the sources that control this function.

I remember when i use to connect a device it would mount and work right off the bat. but now, everytime i connect anything, i have to go through Disk Utility to select the drive and mount it (also unmount before disconnect). Another problem is that some times disk utility doesnt like to work (as with a few other programs). This happends every now and then and im not sure if its my systems hardware or this version of ubuntu. every now and then programs like to stop responding (turn grey) and some programs like disk utility will open up, but just be blank and not show the detected devices
