General :: Change Umask For Files Created In Ext2/ext3

Oct 28, 2009

I have ext3 partition mounted on /mnt/shared/ as follows

Code:

Permissions above are of the actual mounted fs.

Goal is to have all files created on the fs
1) to belong to group 'users'
2) to have this groups permissions set to rw (rwx for directories) so that all users who belong to group 'users' have full read/write access to data and everyone else to have only read access.

Now because of setgid bit (s) in group permissions every file created has group 'users' and additionally setgid bit is set for directories. Because every users umask by default (on my system) is set to 0022 all created files will have permissions 644 for ordinary files and 755 for directories.

Net result of above means that users A and B who both belong to group 'users' won't be able to modify files created by the other.

So how can I make files created on the fs to be created always with umask 0002 WITHOUT changing default umask for users that is used elsewhere (like in their home directory) ?

General :: Converting A Vfat Extended Partition Into A Ext4 Partition?

Jan 29, 2011

I want to convert a vfat partition into an ext4 partition. This is on my wife's machine and she deleted the Windoze partition as she now prefers Linux. Here is the (edited) output from fdisk -l:-

/dev/sda2 514048 4708351 2097152 83 Linux
/dev/sda3 4708352 6805503 1048576 82 Linux swap
/dev/sda4 52693200 234436544 90871672+ f W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5 59006800 234227699 87610446 83 Linux

I want to change /dev/sda4 to 83 to free up space for Linux without losing the partitions in this 'extended' partition!

General :: Vfat Partition Not Recognized By Windows 7?

Dec 13, 2010

I have a 320GB external HDD with 2 partitions, both primary:

1. vfat 100GB
2. ext3 remainder

Both were formatted when I created them with qtparted. Windows 7 sees them, and says they are healthy, but does not recognize the vfat partition. Is it too big, perhaps? Short of moving everything off the vfat partition and recreating it with W7, how do I fix it? I think W7 uses some sort of extended fat32 now?

Hardware :: Ran Mkfs.vfat Over Top Ntfs Partition - Any Way To Restore Ntfs Partition Info?

Oct 12, 2010

I was attempting to format a flash drive, and well, used the wrong sdX device. I've run DiskInternals Partition Recovery tool, and all my files are still there (you have to pay $139 to have it restore the files). Is there any way using tools in linux to restore the ntfs partition/files? It was a single disk with the partition taking the entire drive. I've tried mounting it with the -t option, but it says invalid ntfs signature. Man, two lessons the hard way, make sure you backup (duh) and be careful what you type as root.

Ubuntu :: How To Dd Windows To An Ext2 Partition

May 27, 2010

i TOTALLY ****ed up my windows bootmgr, and, in some way, the linux partition too. I'd like to format the windows partition, but as all my info stays intact I'd like to conserve it that way. The only way I can think of, is to make a new ext2 partition on the same HDD y have windows ( I only have one HDD, so... ) and save the information there . Wich is the correct way to do so, without losing all my software and/or information??

Other details:

* Rright now, i don't have ubuntu installed on my pc ( I'm using a live cd ).
* I'm using ( or was ) win 7.
* The only partitions on my HDD is an ntfs ( 60 GB ) and an unallocated ( 240 GB )

General :: Auto-mount A Vfat Partition As User?

Nov 1, 2010

I have a vfat partition under RedHat RHEL5 that I currently must mount manualy after each boot. I would like it to auto-mount but I cannot find a way to do this without it becoming ro except for root. My other partitions auto-mount just fine. I have tried the vfat as a separate partition and as a VLM logical drive (as it currently is).

The fstab statement:

"/dev/VolGroup00/LogVolDos /dos vfat noauto,users 0 0"

allows me to mount it as a user. The statement:

"/dev/VolGroup00/LogVolDos /dos vfat defaults 1 2"

is what I use for other VLM partitions, but for the vfat it seems to only allow root access. Manually mount this partition is OK, it's just that I have sometimes forgotten and then it is not included in backups. What do I need to do to make the vfat auto-mount as accessible for a user?

Fedora :: CodeBlocks Writing To Vfat Partition Permission Error?

Dec 30, 2010

I partitioned my drive to dual boot with XP, and I also added in a fat32 partition so both Windows and Linux can read/write to there to share files. I now have a problem with permissions (I know that fat32/vfat does not support permissions.) I can as my normal user read/write to this partition, but I want to set-up a CodeBlocks project on there and this is where I run into my permissions error.I can create it and the .cbp file is there ect. but I can not save any work, it will complain ('could not write', or sometimes with 'maybe this drive is write protected'.) I have something like

UUID=1234-1A23 /repo vfat defaults,umask=000 0 0
in my /etc/fstab

General :: Can't Delete The EXT2 Partition

Oct 31, 2009

I had to install a new disk drive in my PC a week ago because the old drive died. The new drive is a 160 gig drive. First I installed Win XP with S/P 3 and everything was fine. Then I installed Ubuntu 8.04 and the troubles began. Ubuntu resized the Windows partition down to 8.81 gig and used the other 137.44 gig for Ubuntu. When I booted into Windows I started getting nasty little messages about "not enough disk space". SOOoooo....... I booted using the Ubuntu install CD and ran "sudo gparted" in a terminal window. I tried to resize the ext2 partition but got an unknown error.

Then I ran fixmbr in Windows to get rid of grub. Then I tried running gparted again to delete the ext2 partition. Got an error that said "can't delete the partition because it's mounted". So I tried to unmount the partition but got a message that the command "unmount" could not be found. After that I installed Partition Magic in Windows and tried that. It sees the ext2 partition but says it's unsupported when I try to delete or resize it.

I ran fdisk but it doesn't see the Linux partitions either, so I can't delete them in that program. I finally tried to format the disk but now I have a 9 gig drive with nothing on it. How do I get those Linux partitions off the drive so I will have a 160 gig drive that I can start over with? I've spent 6 days this week reinstalling XP and all of my programs, and now everything is gone because Ubuntu decided to be a disk hog.

General :: Recover From Deleted Ext2 Partition?

May 3, 2010

I was installing windows vista on my computer, so I backed up everything to a external drive which was formatted with ext2. I then proceeded to install windows vista. When I got to the partition section I tried installing windows vista to my raid 0. When it didn't work I decided that I would delete all my existing partitions and create a new one. Well in my haste I accidentally deleted my ext2 partition from my backup drive that was still connected. As soon as I realized what I had done I shutdown the windows install and disconnected my external drive. This is the current state of my drive from parted:

Model: WD 15EADS External (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdb: 1500GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos
Number Start End Size Type File system Flags

I know that the drive only had one partition before and that it took up the entire disk and it was ext2 (maybe ext3).

General :: Removing The RAID From An EXT2 Partition?

This might be a longshot but i used to use the 4 bay NAS here Which formated the HDD JBOD array to EXT2 , Anyway i want to move to an 8 bay DAS now but i cant find an application to convert the partitions .

Partition magic says the partitions are unformatted and the partition id is set to linux raid auto . Is there any way to convert this partition to vanilla EXT2 so i can use partition magic on it ? Its a 4TB array so copying isnt possible.

General :: Cannot Copy File Over 16,843,020 Kb On Ext2 Or Ext3 Partition

Aug 26, 2010

i m not able to copy a file over 16 gigs on an EXT2 or EXT3 partition. Is there a way to do this. I even tried to split my iso file too. I splitted my iso file in 4 files then copy them on the ext2 or ext3 partition. But as soon as I was trying to join the files together it never went over 16 gigs. Actually it stops at 16,843,020 kb exactly. is there a limit for those partitions or is there an another way to see my 20gigs iso file in one piece?

General :: Mounting Ext2 Partition With Write Permissions?

Oct 25, 2009

I need to mount my ext2 partition with write permissions for an average user. Right now, I can only write to the volume using sudo or the root account.

/etc/fstab:

Code:

# Filesystem: Mountpoint: Type: Options: Dump: FSCK:
/dev/sda1 / ext4 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0

[code]....

can't add the options uid=500,gid=500 to the ext2 volume because it says "bad option" I have 1 question. If you have a volume listed in /etc/fstab, and you try to mount it with different options than the ones listed in fstab, will it mount with the new options, or the fstab options?(e.x. if I try to mount /dev/sda6 with: mount-o auto,user,exec,rw,async. Will it mount with async or sync?)

Ubuntu :: System Monitor Reports Zero Or No Use Of Swap Partition?

Currently and for the last half an hour System Monitor reports 31% in use by programs 68% in use by cache

So my 1GB of ram is maxed out. Things are kind of slow but not crawling (though at times, simple things like scrolling are stalled)

But it reports Swap: 0% in use.

Seems confirmed by the following:

General :: Create An Ext2 Partition From Command Line Which Is Writable From Every User

Nov 3, 2009

I work with a Debian Squeeze on my laptop and I have a 160GB external hard disk. My hard disk was formatted FAT32, but I decided to format it using ext2. I formatted it using fdisk from command line and everything went well. Unfortunately, when I mount my hard drive(which is auto-mounted from Debian) it has got root both as owner and group. Then I can't write to it because I have no permission to do that. Is there a setting to create an ext2 partition which has as owner the logged system user in order to have right permission every time.

OpenSUSE Install :: Windows 7 Reports Suse Not In Extended Partition?

Dec 29, 2009

I have installed Windows 7 Professional (64 bit version), and OpenSuse 11.2 (64 bit) on to a newly built Core i5 machine. I installed Windows first, with 3 partitions. The 100MB partition Windows reserves, a C: drive for the operating system and a D: drive for data. Both of these are NTFS partitions. I then installed OpenSuse into the unallocated section at the end of the new disk drive. The Linux partitioner showed OpenSuse in an extended partition, containing a swap / /home and /tmp partition. Both operating systems now appear to be working fine, but I'm worried about the Windows Disk Manager showing that the OpenSuse partions are primary ones, and are not inside an extended partition. It only shows a small amount of unallocated space at the end of the drive as being in an extended partition.

Should I delete OpenSuse and start again? Perhaps creating an extended partition with Windows before trying to reinstall OpenSuse?If I leave the disk as it is, is it likely to continue to dual boot without something unstable occuring? It may just be a Windows problem which will not be fatal, but I'm worried all my files may get scrambled at a some point in the future.

Debian :: Tool For Squid Reports (not SARG) - Generate Less Amount Of Files - Optimal Is To Save Reports To The Database

May 9, 2011

I got the following task from my boss. I have to find out if there is some alternative tool for create reports from Squid except SARG. Now, we use SARG, but my boss told to me, that the main problem of SARG is, that SARG generate huge amount files, which cause problems during migration our servers. He told to me the following condition for change of current tool (SARG):

* standard package of Debian
* generate less amount of files, optimal is to save reports to the database

So I would like to ask you if you know about some tool (I can not find some by google)... and the best would be if you told to me some practical experiences.

Ubuntu :: How To Use Created Partition

I was able to create a new partition in my terminal using fdisk.

So basically this is just an additional partition in my currently installed linux (ubuntu). Now my problem is, how can I use that partition or how can I save files or install applications on it?

I tried creating a File system mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1, and I also mounted it, but when I copy files on the directory where I mounted it, it says "Permission Denied". I dont know if Im doing it correctly though.
