I "upgraded" to Karmic and now my computer won't start. It shows the grub menu, I select the first Ubuntu option, and it shows the white logo. Underneath the logo these words appear, and it does nothing:Quote:One or more of the mounts listed in /etc/fstab cannot yet be mounted: /boot: waiting for UUID=338c820e..Press ESC to enter a recovery shell

Aug 19, 2010

ubuntu 9.10. Won't boot. Not a new installation, no new hardware. When I boot it up into 2.5.31-22-generic safemode it says: One or more of the mounts listed in etc/fstab cannot yet be mounted: /home: wating for UUID...

Booted up w/ live CD, fsck says that /dev/sda3 is clean I have a 320 GB hard drive, 20 GB is the linux boot, 2 GB is swap, and the rest is /home. Palimpset Disk Utility can recognize the 20 & swap, but says the rest is unrecognized.

Ubuntu :: Update Error "one Or More Of The Mounts Listed In Fstab Cannot Yet Be Mounted"

Feb 7, 2010

no idea what went wrong. computer was apparently shutdown halfway through installing major system updates. now booting into terminal(gnome?), and displaying error messages: one or more of the mounts listed in fstab cannot yet be mounted: (esc for recovery shell) /: waiting for /dev/disk/by-uuid/[loooooong string of aplha-numeric(a/#) babble] /tmp: waiting for (null) swap: waiting for uuid-[another (diffrent-but-similar) string of A/# babble]~~user input: esc (the phrase: '^] pops up)


i'm over my head. i tried everything from chmod on 'lock' to gethost (which turned out to not be installed.) nothing is working yet.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Skipping Fstab-listed Usb-hdd During Boot When Absent?

May 18, 2010

I have a usb-hdd at one location that I use for backup purposes.It is listed (by its specific label, not uuid because I don't want to go through the hassle of changing this when changing backup drives or adding one at a different location.Now, since upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04, I get the following message during boot when the usb-hdd is not present and thus not attached:The disk drive for "/media/backup" is not ready yet or not presentI need to press S to skip mounting manually, whereas 9.10 just ignored that fstab entry and continued booting. How can I get the old behavior back? Is there an option I can give in fstab that mounts the drive at bootup when present and ignores it when not?

Perhaps an even better solution would be to let the drive be mounted according to the fstab entry whenever it is attached (be it at bootup or at any other moment): is this possible?elated to that: are drives unmounted/mounted in a suspend/resume cycle?

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Error - "mounts... Cannot Be Mounted"?

Feb 1, 2010

I just reinstalled my windows partition from a backup image. Following that the Grub2 needed repair. That was accomplished and the grub2 menu along with the changes I made (to the grub screen) come up just fine. I can select my Windows 2K installation and it boots okay.when I select the "Linux 2.6.31-17-generic" the boot process appears to begin normally with the Ubuntu symbol shown, but at some point the screen goes blank and the boot process stalls. recovery mode gives me a jumbled up recovery menu. Alt-Ctrl-Delete gets me out of either.If I boot from the previous "Linux 2.6.31-14-generic", I�m receiving this error during boot-Quote:"One or more of the mounts listed in etc/fstab cannot be mounted"

There are subsequent screens that warn I'm running in "low graphics mode", but I can boot to a somewhat functional system. I was able to boot it once, but get the same results with either kernelThere is a difficult to read message in the jumble of the recovery menu.Quote:"One or more of the mounts listed in etc/fstab cannot be mounted. Swap: waiting for UUID=35b77xxxxxx"Any ideas? I'm not sure how to troubleshoot the problem, or what steps to take to resolve it.

Fedora Installation :: Editing Fstab / Disks.txt And Mounts.txt After Live CD Install?

Jan 19, 2010

I have installed Fedora 12 i686 Live to a 200 mb partition on an external drive. Before the install I created a 6.7 GB ext3 partition and a 45 GB ext3 partition. The live cd copied the image to a 200 mb partition.

partition 2bce0f9d-53a6-4ec2-b5ad-1a6915c74260 is 45 GB
partition 4683EB23BED2EB34 is 102.6 GB NTFS
partition b7240ff1-0807-42ba-e172-bff5872519ad is 6.7 GB


Will creating an entry in fstab sdb6 and sdb8 allow the fedora distrib dvd to install to the external hd? How do I create the entries?
I have a raid0 hd with windows xp pro. When i try to shrink the partition using anaconda, I get a disk error and the comper locks up. I have to shut off the ups to reboot.

Fedora :: NFS Mounts But No Files In Mounted Directory

Feb 10, 2011

I am trying to get NFS mounts working properly using autofs, but I'm only getting partially results. I have an auto.master set up for indirect mounts and a list of map files for each entry. Forgot to mention that when I mount the directory using /etc/fstab or setup a direct mount in /etc/auto.master I can see files in the mounted directory...

Ubuntu :: 9.04 - Mounted Partitions Disappeared (Fstab Is Bad)

Jan 14, 2011

My Laptop has Ubuntu 9.04 and I am using it for the past one year. I have four partitions. Gparted Screen Shot attached.
/dev/sda5 was mounted as "Laptop 2"
/dev/sda6 was mounted as "Laptop 3"

But from today morning I was not able to access any of the files from my hard disk. When I press the "Computer" Menu Item from the "Places" menu I could access all the files on my hard disk. It shows an error message attached with this thread. The system boots perfectly and work perfectly. "Laptop 2" and "Laptop 3" disappeared.

I searched the net and found ways to mount the Partitions with these following commands.
sudo nano /etc/fstab
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5) .....

Is there any way I could use "Laptop 2" and "Laptop 3" as my mount points as it was earlier.

Ubuntu :: Mounted Partition Not Showing Up In Fstab

Jan 16, 2011

I'm totally new with linux and Ubuntu. I've just installed 10.10 yesterday and since then it's been an uphill struggle These forums has helped me out quite a bit already so I hope you can continue doing it with this problem I have.I got a single drive where the bootpartition is ext4 and the other "storage" partition is a remenant from a windows 7 installation I had, with NTFS. Decided I wanted to give Ubuntu a try! Now i've run into permission trouble though, mainly because I wanted to set up an FTP server (oh what a struggle THAT's been, I have some stories... ). I've done a "mount --bind" so that I can reach different resources directly from my chroot. It turns out though that the mounted partition isn't giving anyone except the owner (me) permission to see the resources. FTPing into the server gives the mount points but gives a 550 error and can't list anything inside of them.It works perfectly for me just running it at the prompt or using the mount points directly in the Ubuntu GUI though (since I'm the owner/admin/whatever).

My intended solution that I've found was that people with NTFS drives did a few magic tricks with the line of text in Fstab so they could access their NTFS drives. Problem for me is that my sda3 mount isn't showing up at all in fstab, even though fstab is supposed to (as far as I know) show all mounted devices on there. All the while, I have my sda3 totally accessible from /media/Storage/. Any pointers as to why this is?After I installed Ubuntu, I just mounted the sda3 with the Disk Utility from System->Administation and didn't think much of it afterwards until now.What's the best course of action here? remount the ntfs partiton using fstab? Convert the ntfs partition into an ext4? I have a lot of data on there I want to keep as well.

Ubuntu :: Shared Folder Mounted On Startup - Fstab

Oct 27, 2010

I want to have a shared folder mounted on startup and I put the following in my fstab:
VMShare /media/VMShare vboxsf defaults,gid=1001,dmask=002 0 0
Where did 1001 corresponds to the virtual share group.

When I boot up the permissions are as follows(from ls -l):
drwxr-xr-x 1 root virtualshare 68 2010-10-27 15:45 VMShare/

So I'm curious why it's group permissions aren't the same as owner? In the fstab I put dmask=002 which should lead to rwxrwxr-x so basically full permissions for owner and group and read/execute for public. However thats not what I'm getting. Also once I get this working correctly am I going to have an issue if the virtualshare group isn't a users primary group? On some older unix servers I ran into this issue, hopefully it won't matter as long as the user in in the group.

Ubuntu Networking :: NFS Mounts Cause A Hang On Reboot Of The Mounts Are Lost

Nov 24, 2010

I have multiple ubuntu machines and I connect to one through an NFS share. I have done this for a few years without issue. However, since re-installing ubuntu and upgrading to 10.4 I have a problem with my system hanging when the remote shares are lost.

Basically, I can power down the machine downstairs, and my main machine then has a fit. I can not open any folders in ubuntu, nor can I shut down. If I try and shut down the system hangs, last time it hung for 8 hours before I had to kill the power.

These are the lines in my fstab

I don't know what I've done wrong, or how I can prevent this from hanging. I have googled the heck out of this as well and can't seem to find an answer either.

Ubuntu Networking :: NFS Randomly Mounts On Boot

Jul 10, 2010

Here is my entry in the fstab: media/Our40NAS nfs auto,_ne
tdev,rw,hard,users,intr 0 0

Upon reboot, sometimes it would mount automatically and sometimes it would not. I have not discovered any specific pattern. It is very random. Sometimes it would go many reboots without mounting and on the next it would mount it. I tried putting timeo paramter, played with the parameters, but still have the same issue. My laptop is connected to a wireless network. When I do mount -a or if I go to Places everything mounts great. It just simply will not mount all the time automatically upon boot, and after wireless connection is established.

Ubuntu :: NFS Mounts Failing At Boot With DNS Errors

Jul 14, 2010

I have several NFS entries in my /etc/fstab file. Each entry generates an error during boot (from /var/log/boot.log):mount.nfs: DNS resolution failed for macpro.dpc: Name or service not known mountall: mount /mnt/BaseLines [656] terminated with status 32

This occurs even if I specify an IP address in fstab rather than a host name. I was really surprised by that. The odd thing is that by the time the system is up, not only is DNS working as expected, but the NFS shares are mounted as expected. I'd just ignore it for now, accept that it prevents Apache from starting since some of the server's files live on the NFS shares (this is a development system). It appears that the DNS resolver isn't running when the mounts are attempted and that they are attempted again later, after the resolver is running.

I did an
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade....

Ubuntu Servers :: Stuck At Boot With Raid (non Boot) In Fstab = Useless?

Nov 1, 2010

Forgive the terseness. I'm frazzled with this issue, perhaps I should have asked earlier. Every weekend for the past 2 months has been an endless cycle of 'repair broken system' off the install disk.

Installed from Ubuntu server 10.04LTS x86_64, + xfce-desktop Here is uname -a Linux ournas 2.6.32-25-server #45-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 20:06:58 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux If I add my raid + lvm to the fstab file, the boot stalls, (no error it, just hangs waiting, forever). So that's a not very user friendly to start with.

I've tried the suggestions about UUID in fstab tried using LABEL instead, or even /dev/xxx. Every time it hangs. I've googled this endlessly and not found a solution. So don't ask why... since I seem to have tried every odd suggestion to fix this, I've lost track. There seems to be some consensus that whoever gave us plymouth laid an egg. Forgive me if I'm wrong, but did we need a better graphical boot if it breaks everything else?

Fedora Servers :: Pre-boot Mounts Script

Mar 10, 2011

I need to mount tmpfs partitions to /etc & /var and unpack archieves of this folders there. This task is complete working on Gentoo with monolite kernel & handmade initramfs script. But on fedora this method is like hacking. And not pretty for later upgrades, etc... I think, may be it is need to create script in /etc/init.d/ with high run priority. But this method takes many errors on boot. It is need to mount two tmpfs partitions to /etc/ & /var & unpack archieves. All this processes are to be executet after switching init from initramfs to realinit. But before first system processes try to start. How to complete this task with fedora way?

Ubuntu :: Won't Boot When Add Hd To Fstab

I have an external hdd that I have added to the fstab so it will mount when I boot. But every time I add the line to fstab and reboot, it hangs during the boot process and says something about ureadahead-other status 4. here is my line in fstab..

/dev/sdc1 /NAS ext3 defaults 0 0

Is there anything wrong with that? I couldn't remember what fs I chose when I formatted it so I did "sudo parted /dev/sdc print" and it said it was ext3.

However, since the system will not boot I'm having diffeculty getting in to edit it.The system is running Ubuntu 10.4 64 Bit with LVM2.I have both 10.4 64Bit Server and 10.4 32Bit Desktop cds currently and could burn others if needed. With 32Bit Desktop I'm able to get to a live cd prompt but my hard disks are not mounted.if I try mounting /dev/sda5 to a dummy directory I created it tells me it doesn't know the type of 'LVM2_member'.

Hardware :: Changes To Fstab (UUID's) / Revert Fstab's Listings Back To The Old /dev/hd Settings?

Jan 15, 2010

I've had two hd's in my box forever. for more space and backup reasons. Well I have started running the Debian Squeeze distro since December. I've had many issues, some are still unresolved. but now I'm running into major headaches with the fstab. Specifically dealing with/wondering why UUID's are used instead of the old /dev/hd? I was a little annoyed when I tried Kubuntu to find /dev/sd? used instead of /dev/hd? but that was workable. But the UUID's are a nightmare. Here's my problem.

My main box is finally giving up the ghost. The mobo is dying. So in order to do some tests I took my hd bundle (my two hard drives with their cables) physically out of the box and temp installed them in a test box. I wanted to do some benchmark and other tests. I got all kinds of errors. I found that the system wasn't recognizing the UUID's listed in fstab. My concern is when the new mobo gets here next week I won't simply be able to plug the hd's in like I always have been and just let Linux reconfigure itself (Debian used to be good about this). I really don't want to have to clean reinstall if it's not needed.

So for this I have two questions. WHY developers decided to drop using /dev/hd? or even /dev/sd? ?

And is it possible to revert fstab's listings back to the old /dev/hd? settings. In debian fstab had lines commented out showing how each partition was listed in it's /dev/hd? status during install.

I'm getting really sick of all these archane changes in ALL aspects of linux that don't seem to have any good explaination or need.
