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! ).

General :: Mounting A Drive That Isn't Yet Connected On The Network

Jul 16, 2011

I have an external Samba network storage drive that I mount using 'mount -t cifs -o username=aaa,password=aaa //myserver /mnt/mountlocation', but I'm finding it to be a pain to enter that whole command every time I turn on that drive and connect it to my computer via the network. I could put that command in a script and run a simple script like 'mntdrive' that would run that command for me, but is there a way to have the drive 'pre-mounted' so that if it's available on the network it's mounted?

If I put the mount command in one of the startup scripts or in fstab, would it be available at the mount location when the drive is connected if it wasn't connected when the computer was first turned on? Or is mounting the drive manually, even if by running a script that does it for me, something I'll have to do every time I turn on that drive? Any creative ways around this? Would make things easier if it is possible.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting /var Partition As Network Drive

Mar 24, 2010

I'm setting up a server, and someone asked me (after I was done installing and formatting) whether the external hard disk attached to this server (with the /var partition) could also be mounted as a network drive for easy file transfer (i.e. drag-drop file transfer without ssh/scp or sftp). If someone has any ideas on how a pre-formatted (ext4) partition can be simultaneously made available as a network drive readable by a Windows machine.

Networking :: Mounting XP Network Drive On Machine Works Manually But Not On Boot Up?

Dec 13, 2008

I know this has been covered in many threads before, but I'm stuck not finding my exact situation or an answer. I'm a newbie using a Debian Linux machine as the client and Windows XP machine as the server. I have successfully mounted the XP Network drive on the Linux machine using commands from the root terminal:

mount -t smbfs -o username="Windows Username",password=windowspassword //XPcomputername/folder /mountpoint/

However when I put the command in the ect/fstab file as suggested in several posts, I don't get any result on boot up. I.e. I can't get the network drive to mount on start up, I always have to manually mount it from the root terminal.

Slackware :: Audio CD Is Not Mounting

Feb 17, 2010

I am trying to listen to an audio cd but when I try to find it, either through an ikon on the desktop, (XFCE), or through a media player, -Amarok - vlc, the file manager, (Thunar), nor even ultimately the Terminal, can I find anything in the CD-rom drive when a music CD is played in it.I can easily copy the contents of the CD to my home directory using cdparanoia.When I place a CD with an ISO image or a DVD from Linux Format, for example, I have no problems opening or browsing them.I had also run alsaconf and it completed easily. But still nothing shows up, and the superblock error is still there.

Slackware :: CD Rom Not Mounting - Can't Read Superblock / Fix It?

May 10, 2010

I am newer to Slackware but not to Linux. I am having the hardest time trying to get my CDROM to mount for me so that I can play audio cd;s and the like. I can see that the system knows that my CDROM drive is there and that it works because I installed Slackware 13 from my CDROM drive as /dev/hdc. Now when I put in a cd nothing happens? I have googled away and searched this forum quite a bit before posting this but I have tried almost everything I can think of and what others have mentioned. I have screenshots to show you what I mean. When I try to run the command:
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
I get it as mounting as read only and it says can't read superblock? Now that is fro my slave IDE CDROM on top as hdd. I have tried before to mount it as /dev/hdc but to no avail. I know both CD drives work just fine because I used them to install the system. I am going to put the screenshots below so maybe someone can help me! Also I can eject the top CD drive with the command code...

Slackware :: Mounting LVM Created By Fedora?

Apr 15, 2010

I installed slackware 13 to an 80gig drive on a box that also had an encrypted LVM created by Fedora. I can not seem to mount the drive from slackware even after opening the lock.

However, I cvan not boot the older fedora image due to UUID changing names. I tried to correct the UUID via a boot disk and am unable to do so. I have only read access to the 750gig fedora partition. Slackware fails mount with unknown partition type.
I can see my data but not pull it off.

Fedora :: Mounting A Hard Drive That Already Has An OS

Dec 18, 2009

I have an 320GB hard drive with F11 installed. Lately, I got a 1.5TB new hard drive, on which I have installed F12. Now I want to use the 320GB as a second hard drive since I have lots of data on it. My question here is as I boot my desktop, how does it recognize to boot from the 1.5TB and consider the 320GB as a secondary? Is there anything I need to setup in BIOS? My motherboard has one extra SATA connection left for a second hard drive.

Fedora :: Mounting 2nd Drive At Boot?

Jul 30, 2010

I've got a semi-retired hdd (with a few bad sectors my disk utility tells me) formatted in ext4 that can be mounted onto the Desktop after boot provided root password is offered first. I thought it would be straight forward to mount it at boot with something in etc/fstab like :


/dev/sdb /home/Jo/Desktop ext4
But this doesn't work, is there a glaring error here ?

Various threads suggest permission restrictions could be the cause but i have had no success with them

Fedora Installation :: Not Mounting Second Drive?

Jun 18, 2011

I just switched to Fedora (from Ubuntu) and can't seem to get Fedora to automount my old drive (which is my old Ubuntu drive). I tried the following with no luck (in fact, when I did this, it chocked during boot and went into emergency mode:

In /etc/fstab, I entered:

/dev/sdc /media/UBUNTU_DRIVE defaults 0 0

Another odd thing is the UBUNTU_DRIVE directory just disappears after reboot (and I know it was there before rebooting).

I have two additional drives in my tower, and both do show up in gparted, so I'm not sure why they're not getting mounted.

Why can't Fedora auto mount secondary (internal drives) automatically?

What can I do to tell it to auto mount the secondary drives (I have two) automatically?

Ubuntu :: USB Flash Drive Not Mounting?

Feb 25, 2010

My USB flash drive has stopped working with Ubuntu.

Normally when I remove it I unmount it first, but the last time I just unplugged it. After I unplugged it, it started not working.

When I put it in a windows machine, it shows up as drive E: but says "no disk" when I try to access it.

In my Ubuntu machine I can see it as USBDrive under Places > Computer, but it's unmounted. When I click mount nothing happens.

Ubuntu :: Updated To 10.04 - Mounting Ext Drive And Usb?

Apr 30, 2010

I just updated to 10.04 from the previous version and I'm encountering two main problems: First, on boot, after grub, I get the following message: Quote:"Disk drive for /hdba/sda6 is not ready yet or not present" "Continue to wait, or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery" It won't go past that (I've waited 30 min) If I press S then I get tis other message but it skips after a few seconds:

Quote: "Disk drive for /hdba/sda7 is not ready yet or not present" "Continue to wait, or press S to skip mounting or M for manual recovery" If I press S then I have an ALMOST working system. You see: I have an external USB hard drive, shared between XP and Ubuntu with all my files in it, and it won't mount. It's a simpletech and it was working just before the update and it loads, mounts and unmounts perfectly on windows and on another laptop I've got running crunchbang!. I can see the disk in "Media" but says I have not enough permissions to see its contents.

Ubuntu :: GRUB2 Not Mounting Drive?

Jun 10, 2010

I'm having a problem on startup where GRUB seems to time out attempting to mount my main drive. Here is the error it gives me:


Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:

-Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
- Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
-Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)

ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/b1517926-aba4-47d1-81f0-42ca5dd36257 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

I am given a initramfs shell. Sometimes waiting a couple of minutes and then typing 'exit' works. However, I've noticed if I do this:

(initramfs) mount /dev/disk/by-uuid/b1517926-aba4-47d1-81f0-42ca5dd36257 /root
(initramfs) exit

my laptop will boot.

I'm really not sure what the issue is, or how to even start to resolve it.. I'm not sure what the issue is, since

General :: Dvd Drive Keep Mounting Incorrectly / Fix This?

Nov 27, 2010

Running Slackware 13.1

Whenever I insert a dvd or a cd, it automatically mounts to /media/[name], Like for example, the DVD I have in now mounts to /media/TBC3.2.0 (TBC3.2.0 is the name of the disc itself).

I'm needing this to mount to a regular point like /media/cdrom0 or whatever. How can I fix this?

Hardware :: Mounting A Drive To A Specific /dev/sd?

Oct 17, 2010

I have several HDDs connected to my box. Is there a way to always get them to map to the same /dev/sda. For example HD1 is connected to SATA port1 on my motherboard HD2 is connected to SATA port2 on my motherboard all the way to HD5 connected to Sata port5 on the motherboard. I would like port1 to always map to /dev/sda port2 -> /dev/sdb port3 -> /dev/sdc etc until port5 -> /dev/sde as of right now every time I reboot I get different mappings like port1 -> /dev/sdc port2 -> /dev/sda next reboot I get different mappings again.

General :: Mounting Drive At Startup

Oct 8, 2010

I had windows vista on one partition, xp on another documents on another and programs on another.When I installed ubuntu on a new partition it very kindly let me see all the other partitions and mount them as necessary. I would like all my ubuntu files, documents music downloads to go right on to the documents partition so when I back up that drive to an external I have it backs up the documents drive it has all the files I have created in vista or ubuntu. Eventually I want to leave windows completely but I would still want to store all the ubuntu files on the documents drive.

I can go to "places" and mount the documents drive but what I would like to do is when I fire up ubuntu that the documents drive mounts automatically.

CentOS 5 :: 250 GB USB Drive (Fat 32) Not Mounting Automatically?

May 11, 2009

I'm running:CentOS release 5.3 (Final)

when I plug in a Small USB key, hotplug sees the new device, mounts it in userspace and creates a link on the desktop. The user can open the link and read and write to the USB key. I have tested 3 different usb keys and they all work. When I plug in a USB 250 GB drive (Lacie), also fat32, it doesn't mount:

May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: SCSI device sdf: 488397168 512-byte hdwr sectors (250059 MB)
May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: sdf: Write Protect is off
May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: sdf: assuming drive cache: write through
May 11 12:25:29 tinkerer kernel: SCSI device sdf: 488397168 512-byte hdwr sectors (250059 MB

However, I can mount the drive manually as root. The problem is that the user cannot write to the device if it's mounted by root.Is this a problem with hotplug/udev or another way that I can make this device available rw to the user?

NTFS-fs error (device sdf1): pars_ntfs_boot_sector(): Volume size (7tib) is to large for this architecture. Maximum supported is 2Tib. Sorry. NTFS-fs error (device sdf1): ntfs_fill_super(): Unsupported NTFS File system.

I understand that the problem has something to do with NTFS, I see that there is a program called NTFS-3G that Ubuntu uses to get mediocre R&W onto NTFS...

Slackware :: How To Change Mounting Method To Suit Needs

May 18, 2010

I am after some suggestions on how I could change my mounting method to suit my needs.At the moment, I simply mount the device to a location as root.What I would like to do is setup automounting, but in a particular way. In particular, I would like it if when I put in a usb stick, it would be automatically mounted to say /media/usb1, and a second stick would be to /media/usb2, while an esata connected drive would go to /media/sata1

Even better would be if I put in the first usb stick and it was mounted at /media/usb1, it would *always* be mounted at /media/usb1, no matter what order I connected it to my computer in.I would also like to quickly ask about the difference about udev rules and HAL. At the moment I have only used HAL for my touchpad, and have not touched udev at all. What are the differences/advantages etc...
