My current installation setup has a separate partition for /, /boot, /home, /tmp, /usr, and /var. The problem I have is the root partition / is 98% full (4.3GB full). Cleaning temp files and log files won't help since they are on their own partition (and clean). I've removed all but two linux-images. Linux images seem to run at a size of roughly 105M. My root partition is 4.6GB. I can't seem to find any other options for cleaning up space on this partition. I have no idea what is taking up 4.6GB of space.
Disk Usage Analyzer has not been helpful since I have not been able to reconcile 4.6GB of memory with what it claims the total size of the remaining directories occupy. I've tried localepurge, gtkorphan, apt-get clean, apt-get autoclean, apt-get autoremove. I've removed all packages listed under Status -> Not Installed in the package manager. My root file system is still 98% full (4.3GB full).
I would like to use my Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic system to scan and clean viruses from Windows based HDD. I have KlamAV, AVG, and AVAST. I couldn't get F-prot to work. I don't find a debian package of it and don't know how to install tar.gz and the tutorials don't help a lot. Are there other antivirus solutions which are good for cleaning Windows OS but work on Linux/WINE? I wonder if I can install antivirus software in WINE and scan with no problem the hard disks.
I work for a company that makes portable devices running Linux and I was recently asked to make the underlying file system read-only for "security" purposes. Since the distribution is based on LinuxFromScratch, I know that very little writing happens at run time. So, even if the device runs on a usb flash device, I doubt that putting the root file system RO will be that beneficial. I am actually more concerned about a process actually breaking because it cannot open a file in RW mode than a process going rogue and filling the root file system with log files, etc. I'd really like to ear what kind of advantages disadvantages there really is with read-only file-systems.
When you unsuccessfully try to install software, does your Slackware system become cluttered with unused files? Is there a program, other than 'slackpkg clean-system', that can review your installation and identify any useless stuff? My tmp directory is set, in fstab, to delete its contents on boot. Is the tmp directory the only directory to be concerned with?
I have been using Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop version for around 1 month then i stoped using after installing windows 7, as I knew that there were the 10.04 version coming. So when it was released i went to torrent download the file and burned it on a cd. After that i insert the cd and use the wubi installer in there as i want to install them side by side. so after installing ubuntu i restarted the system and got into it. After a few minutes it appeared this error message "Not root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu." So i was expecting it to be downloading problems. I went on to ubuntu website requested for a CD and it came today. So i inserted the cd did the same thing again.
Is it possible to run fsck on the root file system? My Ubuntu 10.04 seems to be checking it's fs at boot... It shows that the file system is in use and can get severely damaged! Or the only possibility is to run it from a live CD?
Classic partition problem apparently. What do I do? the 11.04 wubi doesn't give a lot of installation options, so i just selected C drive, and gave it 10GB of space. instilled it, and when it goes to the desktop menu, that pop up appears saying No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu
I'm trying to install 11.04 and get the error warning in the title. It says "Please correct this from the partitioning menu."How do I do that?I don't see any options for that.Puppy will already boot from that device and has grub installed.
I would like to start off by saying this: I am very new to Linux, and this is my first time installing it, therefor I am having some very newb-like issues. Please bear with me.I am currently at step five of the installation process of Ubuntu, and I clicked on the partition which I have set aside to install Ubuntu onto, but when I proceed by hitting forward, I get the following error message:"No root file system is defined.Please correct this from the partitioning menu."My question to the community is, how would I correct that? How do I turn my 20GB partition into the root file system?P.S. I searched the forum for this issue, and being that it sounds so simple, yet I found nothing about it being previously asked, I feel sort of dumb....
When I tried to install 10.10 'side by side' with 10.04 and OpenArtist for triple booting I get the messageQuote:No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.I don't have the screen in front of me now but what5 does it want me to do and how do I do it?
I have a 9.04 64bit Ubuntu server that I use for a home file server and for downloading duties, every few days the root filesystem gets remounted as read only, usually requiring a reboot and fsck to get everything running again. The box is tucked away in the roof space to keep the noise down so it's a bit of a pain to keep pulling it out to get console access.troubleshoot what might be causing this?/ is on a raid 1 array on 2 8GB usb sticks last few lines of DMESG EXT3-fs error (device md3): ext3_journal_start_sb: Detected aborted journal

I am pondering a reinstall of a freshly installed Ubuntu; I may or may not take that drastic step.However, I have partitioned my drive to include a 16-GB partition labelled "Ubuntu-tmp", in my case /dev/sda7, with the intent of mounting that file system as /tmp. Depending on how I decide to go about the reinstall I need an answer to these questions:If I reinstall: Is it possible to designate /dev/sda7 to mount as /tmp during the installation process?If I cannot designate the mounts at install time, or if I opt not to reinstall: I can't really empty the /tmp directory in the root in order to properly use it as a mount point for [the file system on] /dev/sda7; many files in there are still in use by running processes. So how can I clear the /-mounted /tmp directory and assign it to /dev/sda7?
I have attached a screen shot of gparted to illustrate my layout scheme.The gparted manual suggests I select the partition, click [Partition]->[Mount]. Of course, my gparted drops a menu with [Mount] is absent and an [Unmount] option is greyed out.This raises a question of how I am going to mount /users and /var in their intended file systems (/dev/sda8 and /dev/sda9, respectively), because the [partition] menu looks the same for these partitions as well.
I was trying to install Ubuntu desktop and laptop edition on a Sony Vaio netbook from a USB drive, but after I select the entire disk to be used and hit enter I get this message No root file system is defined. correct this from the partitioning menu. If I try to start windows I just get s black screen.
When I get to installation step "Allocate drive space" I get this message, "No root file system is defined. correct this from the partitioning menu." What is the source of this error and what do I need to do to correct it? I don't see a partition menu other than a choice of using the whole drive or a partition? Below are the choices that I have made. Specify partitions manually (advanced) Allocate drive space Choice are device (/dev/sda4) Type ((ext3) size) Mount Point (no choices offered) Size (42088 mb) used (670 mb) boot looder is sda Windows 7 ext3 42088 MB I am installing Ubuntu 10.1 on a seperate partition. Windows 7 is on another partition. The machine is an ASUS A52F Laptop
i have one partition of 45 Gb...and other of 250 Gb in which windows 7 has been installed..i booted from ubuntu 10.10 CD and then i chose the installation option on desktop...but when i selected the partition of 45GB for installation..the error message said that "there is no root file system on the drive, set it from partition options"..
I've been trying to install ubuntu 11.04 64 bit on a partition next o windows 7 64 bit.When I use the default option (no matter how large I make the partition) I get the error message that not enough space could be created. I read this could e solved by defragmenting the hard drive which I did, but the problem persists.I next tried to partition manually but go the error message that there was "No root file system is de or something similar
well i was messing with the Gparted live disk and i deleted a small partition of about 6 megs (yes megs). trying to be efficient doing some cleanup of course. but when i rebooted my Fedora 10 i get the black screen saying," could not find the file system. /dev/root". ok, i am useing the fedora 10 live cd now. can i copy that file to my hard drive from the cd? or do i need to reinstall Fedora?
I have worked in linux for a long time but never managed the system until I got my own server, which is running Fedora 14. I have a 3 TB Drive and apparently can only handle 2 TB. At least the Disk Analyzer is telling me that 2TB is 100% max capacity. Also viewing disk analyzer, I am only using 50GB of my 2TB but I am out of memory in the Root file system. If I run df -h, I get he following:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/mapper/vg_dev1-lv_root 50G 40G 7.2G 85% /

Is it possible to encrypt the Entire root file system using LUKS.I am currently using Ubuntu 10.4 LUCID.After several hours of Google ,most of the articles were focusing to "Encrypting a drive/removable media ".. My aim is to encrypt whole File system which is currently using.
My Concerns, How to Encrypt a running file system? Will it lead to data loss?
im trying to prepare my partitions for fresh installation. The partition manager didnt list anything with an error message that said:Quote:No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu?This is what Gparted displays Quote:
I would like to know if there is a way to do an unattended check on the root file system on my servers, *and* send emails in case of errors.
I know you can schedule a root file system fsck during boot time - but the root file system will be mounted read-only - so if fsck finds any problems - it can't email away a warning, or write the result to a file - or can it?
Essentially I would like my servers to do a self-check of the root file system periodically - and to email me if it fails. I just can't think of a way to get it done.
