Ubuntu / Apple :: Save Dir In Ext3 Originally Written To Fat32?

Jan 1, 2011

I have 50 gigs worth of raw Digital Performer sd2 files originally saved on a fat32 external hd.

I don't have a spare fat32 laying around but I do have an ext3 disk (I run ubuntu 8.04 at home).

I have a feeling that saving these files to ext3 will render them unusable if they're ever transferred back to fat32.

I swear I've been burned by this before.

What would you do here?

Tar them first? A friggin dmg file?

Ubuntu :: Convert External Drives From Fat32 To Ext3 Without Loss Of Data?

Feb 25, 2011

I have 2 external drives that I'm using for movies and they're both formatted to fat32. The problem I'm experiencing now is that some of the high quality mkv files are not able to be moved to the drive because of fat32's limitations.

I'd like to convert to ext3 (or 4) and I wanted to check to see if I can do it without having to reformat and without loss of data.

Programming :: Ext3 To FAT32 USB Drive Filename - Invalid Characters

Feb 13, 2011

I am using Debian Lenny 5.0.3 with a stock 2.6.26-2-amd64 kernel, and have a ~/Documents/HTMLS directory of 273.2MB (21590 files, 1063 sub-folders) which according to konqueror shows 1130 items - 572 files (60.8MB Total) - 558 folders, these were created by 'Save Page As' in Iceweasel 3.5.11. I am trying to copy the contents of this directory to a similar directory on a 2GB USB thumbdrive /dev/sdb1 which was partitioned and formatted as fat32 by Qparted. Problem is that the copying ceases after about 6 files transfer. I found that (as I am sure you know) the named.html files come with a matching named_files folder, and often there are what appear to be invalid characters such as '*','?',and ':' in the filenames in said named_files folders.

After exhaustive googling [I know we all say that] I found an instruction:
pax -rw -s '/[*?:]/_/gp' stuff /fat32/partition
that changes the name of the files, replacing said characters with '_', but whilst I can get pax from my repos, I really don't want to 'archive' the files - since I understand that pax was created to bridge a war between tar and cpio - because I want to be able to read the html files on an old (not connected to the Internet) WinXP tablet. So, I believe that I need to create a script, that scans all the filenames, greps and seds to replace said 'unacceptable' characters. I am assuming that Firefox on the Tablet PC will be able to open the htmls if I can get them onto the thumb drive. Are there any other known characters in filenames that M$ file systems can't handle?

Hardware :: Change My External Hard Drive's File System From Ext3 To Fat32?

Feb 9, 2010

i needed to change my external hard drive's file system from ext3 to fat32, to use it in windows, which i did the simple way: i shrunk the ext3 partition, made a fat32 partition, copied the files over, removed the ext3 and made the fat32 bigger. unfortunately, while gparted was making the partition larger, my computer shut down. i lost all my files and the partition messed up immediately. i made a new fat32 partition, after deleting the old one, but noticed that gparted was showing 100 gigs already in use (???). so now i have a 300 gb hard drive with only 200 gb i can use; i ran df to make sure gparted wasn't messing up, but indeed it shows the partition as being only 200 gigs in size. i haven't tried making any other kind of partition yet, such as ext3, for fear of losing my files again, and because it wouldn't be permanent anyway, because i need those files in windows and stupid microsoft won't make their OS ext3 compatible.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Mac Hd Reformatted To Fat32?

Jul 6, 2010

I installed Ubuntu on my intel-based 5,5 macbook pro 13'', with rEFIt installed on the mac hd, everything worked fine and I've been using Ubuntu for a while now, as in a month or more, but you see I only partitioned my 150GB mac hd to 7gb to install ubuntu on, but after downloading all the software and media, of course that space is starting to look a little bit small, anyway I didn't notice that until actually Ubuntu started to act up, as in it's being too slow and unresponsive , well that's what I should expect when I'm severely running out of space right.

anyway the space I had left was only a few megabytes, so what I thought would solve this, is actually using the Mac HD, since I have 50gb or 90gb of free space, but actually I can't write on my mac hd, so after research I found out that Ubuntu can only read hfs+ but can't write unless it's fat32 or linuxswap or other formats, so to my unexperienced decision, I happily decided to simply reformat my mac HD from hfs+ to fat32 using Gparted, BIG MISTAKE, once I did it, which happened in 4 seconds mind you, I restarted my macbook, and to my unpredicted surprise, where rEFIt should load, nothing did, not even my MAC OS, just a blue screen was there...

of course I panicked, I mean nothing loaded, how am I going to be able to even fix this if nothing as in not even Bios is there...but after a while Ubuntu or Grub just loaded, so I thought good, at least I have an OS to post my problem using, I tried deleting some media to free up space so I could at lease open a web page.

so my problem is, is there a way to return my Mac HD after reformatting it to fat32, I tried to format it back to hfs+ but for some reason Gparted can't do that, and now I can't access anything on my Mac, I find it hard to believe that around 100gb of data could be deleted in a mere 4 seconds, but if it did, at least I want my mac and OS back.

The Carmen Player does work well with Banshee, it is the internet radio that is not working.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Music Which Was Originally On ITunes Into Banshee

Aug 25, 2011

I am trying to get music which was originally on iTunes into banshee, such that I can transfer "ownership" from a Mac onto Ubuntu, and still sync with my iPhone 3GS. Every piece of this music came from CDs which I still own and have collected since CDs were something most people hadn't heard of, but I seriously do not want to sit there and scan in hundreds of CDs again when I already have them in digital form.

I've tried several things, including dragging and dropping from a USB stick. So I've been getting duplicates, and in the process I deleted an album in order to start over. Now I can't get that album back no matter what. It's like it's black listed or something. I can try to load it from the USB stick, I can copy the containing folder from the USB stick to some place on my hard drive, anything. It knows I deleted it once upon a time and it refuses to touch it.

General :: Recovering 1Tb Ext3 With Fsck.ext3?

May 20, 2011

I Tarred and GZipped most of the data on one 1Tb partition and stuck the archives on a second 1Tb partition on a separate disk. I then proceeded to format the first partition with NTFS (from Linux.) The only problem is that I completely forgot that I had a CD drive and formatted sdc1 instead of sdd1! I began doing a full NTFS format and after a minute or two I cancelled it and decided to do a quick format. I then realized my mistake. I managed to find a copy of the superblock and began trying to recover the disk. fsck -t ext3 recognized the partition as NTFS but I luckily didn't have fsck.ntfs installed so it didn't touch it. I managed to get it working with fsck.ext3 (with -b,-B and -y) fsck.ext3 didn't mind that it was an NTFS partition.

Roughly how long will this take? It's running from Knoppix within a virtual machine to a USB hard drive which is 100% full. Days? Being that for a few minutes I attempted a full format am I going to end up with a bunch of corrupted archives? If I do end up with file corruption can anyone recommend a way of recovering the data / sorting it out? Is it likely to be just a few old files that are corrupt (It's my understanding that filesystems like to keep files in the same area on the disk to minimize the amount of head travel.) This might just be wishful thinking but as the filesystem fills up will ext3 put the newer files towards the end of the disk? If so then I'm hoping that a full NTFS format starts at the beginning of the disk.

Ubuntu :: Xrandr Doesn't Save Changes - How To Make It To Save Changes

Jun 16, 2010

my mediacenter is attached to an beamer with the optimal resolution of 1280*720 ubuntu 10.04 doesnt offer me this revolution (on my intel 915 graphis controller). this means i have to add this resolution to the possible resolutions. first i used cvt


cvt 1280 720 60

and got this result:


# 1280x720 59.86 Hz (CVT 0.92M9) hsync: 44.77 kHz; pclk: 74.50 MHz
Modeline "1280x720_60.00" 74.50 1280 1344 1472 1664 720 723 728 748 -hsync +vsync

then i added this to xrandr


xrandr --verbose --newmode "1280x720" 74.50 1280 1344 1472 1664 720 723 728 748 -hsync +vsync



xrandr --verbose --addmode VGA1 1280x720

now i can select and use the new resolution - until next reboot. after an reboot 1280x720 is again not available. even if i work with sudo - the resolution isnt there....

As you can see my fstab is blank, I was just wondering, is this a problem? Or is it totally normal?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Auto-load Apple Wireless Keyboard?

Apr 22, 2010

This morning I bought an Apple wireless keyboard and I got it connected through Blueman. It works like a charm, but I have on problem;

When I log out I can log back in by typing in my password. However, when I restart the computer it seems that bluetooth is not loaded yet and I cannot enter my password. So I have to log in using my wired keyboard, and then disconnect & re-connect to my wireless keyboard using blueman before I am able to use the wireless keyboard.

Is there any way that I can already auto-load bluetooth and connect to my keyboard before I log in?

I cleared the log and then did a tail -f so I could watch it for activity. I then hit my box with anunsuccessful log in attempt. Nothing happened to the log. The uptime of my box is 22 days and the logs that were in it before I cleared it were from months ago.Is there a daemon I can check or another file I can mod to get logs writing again?

Ubuntu :: Create A Directory That Can Be Written To By Multiple Users

Feb 6, 2010

I have a small ubuntu server setup and I would like to create a directory that can be written to by a select number of users. I have a backup directory setup and I want to enable my account as well as three others to be able to read/write to that directory. So far I haven't had any luck.

The owner of the backups folder, a directory on a separate disk mounted under /srv/storage, was owned by root and under the root group. I added the group backups and then changed the backups directory group to backups. I then used chown to change the backups directory to 775 to enable group members to write to it. I then tried to touch a file in the backups folder but no such luck. I did notice that when I run groups, my user account isn't shown as belonging to backups but is shown under the /etc/group file. I even made sure the GID of backups is in fact below 1000.

Anyone have an idea on how to create a shared directory that everyone can create, modify and delete any file? I believe my problem is related to the fact that root is the owner of the backups directory.
