Ubuntu :: Bin Folder Deleted - Wrong FS Type Errors

May 29, 2010

I made the unfortunate mistake of doing this (sudo rm -r /bin) instead of (sudo rm -r bin) in the folder I was in..I'm trying to copy my data over from my Karmic system using mount, but I'm unable to mount. When I try to mount I get errors of an wrong fs type..

I've done fdisk -l & I get this:
/dev/sda1 * 1 37599 302013936 83 Linux

What the heck filesystem is Linux? Is that like ext3 or something? I don't know. Here is what I'm trying to run:
mount -t ??? /dev/sda1 /media/disk -o force

Also, besides that. If there a way I can fix my OS without having to do a reinstall? Or at least is there a way can backup my files? I have a 1tb external so that's not the issue.

Ubuntu :: Deleted The Wrong Package?

Jul 20, 2010

If you're a fallible creature like myself you will sometimes uninstall packages using apt-get commands and then scratch your head when a dependency is missing and something that normally worked on your computer no longer does. So... I wrote this bash script that I think a lot of you will find more than useful. Execute this script before using any apt-get command and any package that is removed will be logged appropriately in ~/.oops .If you later find that something no longer works you can reinstall those packages . Just remember the "oops" script will continue to run until you turn it off. This can be done by pressing Ctrl+C while in your terminal.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

Ubuntu :: GParted Deleted Wrong HDD Partition

Mar 17, 2011

Most times I use my brain but some how I really screwed up with deleting the wrong hdd's partition which was an 500GB NTFS with all of my custom programs, art, web design & so on which can not be replaced. Is there a way to reverse this process? Keep in mind I am not Linux friendly being I do not know the commands & so on so any copy paste commands with good detail on what it does would be greatly appreciated!

I used GParted to delete & already hit the accept but no other changes have been made on the HDD after that. I am currently running in Live mode as I was going to install on the 80GB which is the one I meant to delete but instead had a nice moment of insanity & deleted the 500 instead!

Ubuntu Installation :: Bad Superblock - Wrong FS Type

Jan 4, 2010

I cannot for the life of me get my HD working again. I tried following all the various remedies I could find but to no avail.

Code:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo e2fsck -f /dev/sda1
e2fsck 1.41.4 (27-Jan-2009)
e2fsck: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/sda1
Could this be a zero-length partition?

Code:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo dumpe2fs -f /dev/sda1 | grep -i superblock
dumpe2fs 1.41.4 (27-Jan-2009)
dumpe2fs: Attempt to read block from filesystem resulted in short read while trying to open /dev/sda1
Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.

It goes on and one like this. I'm stuck using the LiveCD for now (Jaunty) so I have some limitations.

Software :: Upgrade To 10.04 - Wrong FS Type

Jun 19, 2010

Just upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and cannot mount one of my partitions. It is encrypted / decrypted in the following fashion:
Code:
# dd if=/dev/random bs=4k count=1 | gpg -a --cipher-algo AES256 -c - > /mnt/usb/keys/fs.gpg
# gpg -q -o - /mnt/usb/keys/fs.gpg | cryptsetup -v -h sha512 -c aes-xts-plain -s 512 create crypto /dev/md1
# mkfs.ext4 /dev/mapper/crypto
# mount /dev/mapper/crypto /crypto

It has been this way for a long time, survived several release upgrades. Now when I decrypt it, I have to use gpg in one command to decrypt the key to a file, then use cat in a second command to pipe to cryptsetup, as such:
Code:
# gpg -q /mnt/usb/keys/fs.gpg
# cat /mnt/usb/keys/fs | cryptsetup -v -h sha512 -c aes-xts-plain -s 512 create crypto /dev/md1

However, I can no longer mount the device:
Code:
# mount /dev/mapper/crypto /store/
mount: you must specify the filesystem type

This is how it's always been mounted. Well I know it's ext4, so I supplied that and was greeted with:
Code:
# mount -t ext4 /dev/mapper/crypto /store/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/mapper/crypto, missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so

The only item in dmesg is:
Code:
[78.212761] EXT4-fs (dm-0): VFS: Can't find ext4 filesystem

Software :: (DVD Error) Mount - Wrong FS Type

Jul 14, 2011

A colleague had troubles with a DVD that contains valuable data, no further backup available. The DVD won't run and I am trying to fix it. Have been playing around on Mac, Windows and Linux successively.

On Mac
Mac shows this message in Toast Titanium 10:
but Finder keeps telling it is an empty disc, no way to get to the files.

On Windows
Windows 7 in VMWare is not of any help.

On Linux
Just installed Ubuntu 11.04 (in VMWare) and did some checks using info on this forum. When trying to mount the disc, this is the error message. Then I used fdisk on the volume (/dev/sr0) and tried fsck. I downloaded UDFTools but cannot find any repair option like udffsck as described in this thread by the last author.

I am running out of inspiration... there are clearly data on the disc, which can be seen by just looking at its surface, but also the info on Mac. However, there might be some bad sector size in the partition table which renders it unreadable. How to recover these data?

Slackware :: Kernel Tries To Mount Wrong FS Type?

Aug 13, 2010

I just installed Slackware 13.1 x86 on a new laptop (you probably remember me from my audio post). I am having one other issue. My root file system is formatted as EXT4. When my computer boots, it tries to mount it as EXT3 then EXT2, fails both types and then tries EXT4. Here are the messages.

Code:
EXT3-fs (sda2): error: couldn't mount because of unsupported optional features (240)
EXT2-fs (sda2): error: couldn't mount because of unsupported optional features (240)
EXT4-fs (sda2): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
So, eventually / is mounted correctly, but I think this is slowing down my boot time. Does anyone know how to fix this.

SUSE / Novell :: Deleted Repository Now Get Errors

Sep 17, 2010

On the advice from someone to delete repositories, I did. But then when I run software management or software repository, I get the following error in a pop-up window:

There was an error in the repository initialization. File './repo/repoindex.xml' not found on medium [URL]

History: - [AbstractCommand.cc:224] [URL]

I added the repositories back in YaST and also tried a different mirror for packman but I still get this error.

I don't know where to look to see what is causing this.

In YaST when I look at installed packages and the versions, some versions are blue and some are red. What do the different colors mean?

Fedora Hardware :: Hard Drives Keep Crashing - Mount: Wrong Fs Type, Bad Option, Bad Superblock

Aug 26, 2010

I am writing as yesterday, my fourth hard drive within 2 years crashed. Is that normal? One was crashing 2 years ago, one in winter 2009 and 2 just within 2 weeks. What can be the reason for so many crashes? I heard maybe the power supply? How can I find out if that's broken? The voltages at least in BIOS seem normal. The SATA controller? How do I know if its broken? Can I just but one PCI-E card with SATA adapters? Is it the motherboard? Theres not much more in my computer... As well, its wired that my good-old 160 GB drive never crashed, only constantly the bigger ones. Here some typical error code from mount and dmesg:

Code: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error

ata2.00: status: { DRDY ERR }
ata2.00: error: { UNC }

Ubuntu :: Deleted Home Folder Won't Go Away / Get Rid Of It?

Jan 15, 2011

Two month ago I accidentally deleted my home folder (yes, very stupid idea but it wasn't on purpose).

I managed to recover the home folder from /home/.Trash-0/tobias by copying it back to where it belongs and changing the file ownership from "root" to my user (tobias).

After this recovery I tried to delete /home/.Trash-0/tobias but it wouldn't work. Whenever I tried, a new folder appeared in /home/.Trash-0/ (root home) named tobias.2, tobias.2.2 and so on. (see first screenshot). This means I had two copies of my home folder on my hard disk (2 x 156.1 GB at that time).

At that time I didn't care since I had enough disk space left (33.8 GB, see second screenshot) and thought Ubuntu would take care of this some time by removing the files in /home/.Trash-0/.

Fast forward to today, I get warnings of low disk space. My home folder today is around 160 GB but together with the deleted one in /.Trash-0/ I only have 1.3 GB disk space left in my home folder.

Any ideas how to delete the unused second home folder copy? Or is there some other way to free the disk space occupied by .Trash-0/ ?

(Ubuntu 10.04. LTS on vaio VPCEB1S1E btw)

Ubuntu Servers :: How PID Folder Deleted Automatically

May 25, 2010

I'm new to Ubuntu (at least on server distributions). I used debian versions for a long time and thought, to try ubuntu LTS 10.0.4, because of the long time support cycle. I had problems, to install this distribution on a x86 platform (used with ASUS P4B533-v), because of kernel panic after installation. So I used a trick to get it running. I installed Ubuntu LTS 8.04 and compiled a kernel 2.6.34 and made a distupgrade. All went o.k. and is now running as a productive system.

My question now belongs to the used pid folder /var/run. I'm using some self compiled programs and had to create a separatly folder (e.g. /var/run/stunnel). My problem is, after rebooting the system, the folder is deleted automatically! Never saw this issue on other distributions. Is there any reason why? Of course, I can write a section in my init script, searching for existing folder and if not, creating it ...

Ubuntu :: Desktop Folder Gets Deleted On Logout Or Login

Mar 18, 2011

Ubuntu 10.04. Also have Kubuntu desktop installed. Usually use Ubuntu. Home folder shows as the desktop. Checked settings for Nautilus, Home_folder_is_Desktop is NOT checked. ~/Desktop folder does not exist. .config/user-dirs.dir desktop line is set to XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/"

So, created the ~/Desktop folder. Changed the line in user-dirs.dir to read XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop". Log out. Log back in. Result:

Home folder shows as the desktop. Checked settings for Nautilus, Home_folder_is_Desktop is NOT checked. ~/Desktop folder does not exist. .config/user-dirs.dir desktop line is set to XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/"

Logged into the KDE desktop. It complains that the ~/Desktop folder does not exist. Shows nothing on the desktop. Create the ~/Desktop folder. Set KDE to use the ~/Desktop folder. Check .config/user-dirs.dir and make sure that the Home folder shows as the desktop. Checked settings for Nautilus, Home_folder_is_Desktop is NOT checked. ~/Desktop folder does not exist. .config/user-dirs.dir desktop line is set to XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/Desktop" line is in. Everything is set. Log out.

Log in to Ubuntu. Result:
Home folder shows as the desktop. Checked settings for Nautilus, Home_folder_is_Desktop is NOT checked. ~/Desktop folder does not exist. .config/user-dirs.dir desktop line is set to XDG_DESKTOP_DIR="$HOME/"

This problem showed up on two computers after a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 followed by an install of the Kubuntu desktop. Might as well install Kubuntu desktop because some of the utilities I like to use (Kate, Krusader, etc) require that major parts of it be installed anyway. What appears to be happening is that the user-dirs.dir folder is getting ignored and is overwritten either on logout or login and the ~/Desktop folder is being deleted.

General :: Ubuntu - File Was Deleted And Then Reappeared When Folder Was Zipped

May 11, 2010

I am using Backtrack 4 Final, which is a Linux distro that is Ubuntu based. I had a directory that contained around 5 files. I deleted one of the files, which sent it to the trash. I then zipped the directory up (now containing 4 files), using this command:

zip -r directory.zip directory/

When I then unzipped directory.zip, the file I deleted was in there again. I couldn't believe this, so I zipped up the directory again, and the file reappeared again but this time could not be opened because the operating system said it didn't exist or something. I don't remember the exact error, and I cannot make this happen again. why a file that was deleted from a directory would reappear in that directory after it was zipped up?
