Ubuntu :: External Drives Don't Mount Properly Without Gnome

Apr 18, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Zotac nettop. When I boot up normally, all my external USB drives are recognized and mounted properly in /media.

But when I boot up without Gnome (i.e. there's no monitor attached so Gnome doesn't start) they don't mount right: I see directories for them inside /media but normal users don't have access, and root only sees an empty directory.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount External USB Drives?

Apr 12, 2011

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my machine as dual boot using WUBI but on a seperate partition to Windows. Loving it so far, but i cannot get any external drives to mount - i've tried pen drives, camera memory cards and hard drives but nothing comes up.

I have just tried restarting with a pen drive plugged in, and it finally showed something in the computer folder - "memory stick drive" is shown (and my internal CD drive, which i'm not sure was there before.), but i still can't access it and when I try to unmount it gives me the message

Error detaching: helper exited with exit code 1: Detaching device /dev/sdc
USB device: /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-1)

(Continuing despite SYNCHRONIZE CACHE failure.)

Server :: Auto Mount External Hdd-drives?

Mar 17, 2010

I have a problem that i have tried to solve for a couple of days.server with some internal disks. Those disks are for the core-system and some file server related stuff.Beside the server i got two external LaCie boxes that contains 4x1tb disks each. The disks inside the boxes are RAID5, so the system sees every box as one whole "disk".Now to the problem. I just can´┐Żt get those "two" RAID cofigurations two be auto mounted at boot. I have tried to put them in /etc/fstab with a whole bunch of different options but nothing works. The system sees them but don't auto mount them, and i can manually mount them without any problem at all. I have tried to "google" the problem but can't find any similar

Debian :: Mount Multiple External Hard Drives ?

Dec 20, 2010

How to mount multiple external HDD's. I'd like to link or mount the music, torrents, and general files from several external hard drives and apply permissions (in some cases I only want the mount or link to be read only).

My setup:
- Seagate Dockstar running Debian squeeze (it's headless so I don't have a gui running)
- Two external HDD's with one partition on each (250GB and 400GB)

What I'd like to accomplish:
1. Mount the external HDD's to /media/HDDs as read/write (this is already working using udev and autofs and it's available in samba)
2. I'd like the MUSIC directories on both external HDD's to show up under the same mount point. In other words I want the MUSIC folders (from both HDD's) to appear as one large library of music. And I only want this to be readonly. It will be used as the library for mpd and/or squeezebox.
3. Mount a directory used to download torrents to. I'll probably pick on HDD as the target for torrent dowloads. But let me know if you have any other ideas regarding this.

Since I have the first one done, how would I accomplish 2 & 3?

Server :: 2 Separate External Hard Drives With ESata To Minimize An Electrical Failure To The Drives?

Mar 26, 2011

I am building a home server that will host a multitude of files; from mp3s to ebooks to FEA software and files. I don't know if RAID is the right thing for me. This server will have all the files that I have accumulated over the years and if the drive fails than I will be S.O.L. I have seen discussions where someone has RAID 1 setup but they don't have their drives internally (to the case), they bought 2 separate external hard drives with eSata to minimize an electrical failure to the drives. (I guess this is a good idea)I have also read about having one drive then using a second to rsync data every week. I planned on purchasing 2 enterprise hard drives of 500 MB to 1 GB but I don't have any experience with how I should handle my data

I suspect this is not new but I just can't find where it was treated. Maybe someone can give me a good lead.I just want to prevent certain users from accessing CD/DVD drives and all external drives. They should be able to mount their home directories and move around within the OS but they shouldn't be able to move data away from the PC. Any Clues?

Ubuntu Networking :: Samba And External Drive - Unable To Mount Location - Failed To Mount Windows Share - Dialog Box

May 25, 2010

I have been trying to share folders from my main PC which is running Ubuntu 10.04. I have been able to figure out Samba enough to get my a couple of folders shared, but I have been unable to share any folders which are on my external harddrive. After entering the path in my smb.conf file they appear on the network but I am unable to navigate to them. When trying to navigate to them through the network folder on the pc they are actually connected to I get an "Unable to mount location: Failed to mount windows share" dialog box. On the windows pc I am trying to share with I get, "Windows cannot acces \Josh-Desktop
ame of folder"

My smb.conf file looks like this:

That folders I cannot access are Music and Videos.

General :: Mount External USB Drive In Debian To A Mount Point Based On The Volume Name

May 5, 2011

How do I configure my Debian installation to mount external USB drives to mount points based on the volume names of the drives? For instance, if I have a thumb drive with the volume name of "SWORDFISH," how do I have Linux mount it at /media/SWORDFISH? I'm aware that this can be setup in FSTAB, but that requires that I know the UUID of the device beforehand and that I take the time to set each external device up in FSTAB first. That does nothing for me when I have a thumb drive that has never been plugged into my computer before.

This seems to be setup by default in Ubuntu/Kubuntu, but is not working for me with a fresh installation of Debian Squeeze and KDE4. I've spent the past 2 hours Googling for a solution and have turned up nothing. UPDATE: My results are inconsistent. Sometimes Debian mounts devices to mount points based on the volume names, and other times it gives them generic mount points (e.g. /media/usb1).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: After Upgrade To 11.4 Hard Drives Not Properly Unmounted During Halt?

Mar 27, 2011

I did a zypper dup upgrade from 11.3 to 11.4 with no errors. My shutdown command has always been halt -h and during shutdown, I would always see verbose info about the drives being umounted, the "term" signal being sent, and the "kill" signal being sent. Since the upgrade, I only see the "term" signal being sent, followed by shutdown. On every boot since the upgrade, the system goes through several hundred lines of file repairing as the file system is not clean after shutdown. For whatever reason, the hard drives are apparently being killed before the umount is complete. I have changed no settings. The problem exists whether I do a shutdown from the KDE menu, or run halt -h as su from a terminal.

General :: Properly Portforwarding The External IP With Iptables

Jul 2, 2011

I am trying to forward all the incoming internet/LAN requests on port 80 to my local machine (running Apache), current iptables work (forward incoming internet traffic to my desktop, but if I try to access it from my local network it won't work. Interface connecting my Ubuntu server to the internet is ppp0 (dialed DSL connection through my router that is in bridge mode) which is connected to the eth0 and eth1 is connected to my internal LAN.

[Code]...

what i was able to gather so far (via logs), is that accessing external server ip directly from the LAN goes directly to eth1 which is understandable (i think). So what i need now (i guess) is an rule that will forward the LAN traffic on eth1 without interfering with the ppp0 prerouting rule (as forwarding all the incoming traffic on eth1 to my local machine will break the internet connection)

Ubuntu :: Defragmenting USB External Hard Drives?

May 9, 2010

I currently use Ubuntu Lucid, and I'm curious if there is a program that I can install and run through it which will defragment an external USB hard drive.

My 500GB hard drive is used a lot, and I often add/remove stuff on and off of it, and I'm sure it's slowly starting to get a little fragmented with the amount of deletion and addition I do on it.

Does anybody know of a way to check and potentially defragment just it through linux? Or am I gonna have to just find a windows computer and do it there?

FYI, I don't care to nor know I really don't need to defragment my Ext4 drive to which Ubuntu's installed, its' just the external I am curious about.

Ubuntu :: Linking External Hard Drives ?

Feb 23, 2011

So me and my friend our on my network and we have done a bit of hacking and have managed to get music off of pandora and have it sort it by forlder /media/...../artist/album/song and it won't redownload a song that we have already downloaded (this is done by our code that we stripped from pithos and modified a bit) also we wrote a bash script that renames all of our files correctly and tags them with .mp3

I was wondering if I could link our two hard drives to make sure that we aren't both downloading the same songs. I am also having issues getting my external accessible on the network i have it formatted to use a FAT32 file system.

Ubuntu Servers :: Sharing External USB Drives?

May 1, 2011

Just moved my Mac Server to Ubuntu Server 10.10. I have two external USB drives that need to be shared on the network and be available on the internet for sensitive file transfer. What would be the most secure way to do it ? Some users are mobile and some not. The mobile users can access the network through a vpn running on that same server. The server is serving DNS and Proxy as well. I thought about creating a SAMBA share but the two disks are 1TB each. Then I went for proftpd but after reading some doc, it appears not very secure.

Ubuntu :: Syncing Two External Hard Drives

May 17, 2011

I have an external hard drive that contains some 600 GB of files and folders. I use this external drive frequently and so the files and folders in it change on a daily basis. I want to back up this drive on another external drive. What is the best way to sync these two external hard drives on a daily basis?I have been trying to sync them through the Grsync software. But I think either I am not choosing the right options or else Grsync is not the best/right software for my purpose because the second hard drive does not ever become completely identical to the first one. What am I doing wrong? Should I go with another software? If so, are there suggestions for a good one? Or am I doing something not right?

When I run Grsync, I choose the first external hd as my source and the second one as my destination.Then below that I check "Preserve time," "Preserve permissions," "Preserve owner," and "Preserve group." Below that, I also check "Verbose" and "Show transfer progress." Other options are all unchecked.Should I reconfigure these options?FYI, I frequently rename, edit, modify, or else completely delete files and folders in the primary hard drive. Hence, my need to back it up everyday so that the change would be replicated in the second hard drive.

Ubuntu :: Errors That Appear Randomly With All External Hard Drives

Nov 22, 2010

After some googling I found out that there might be a problem with highspeed external USB drives in Linux in general. Im using Ubuntu 10.10 32 bit and have now this problem I think. My external hard drive is working fine but when I type dmesg in a terminal I can see message errors that appear randomly with all my external hard drives. The problem is now, I have all my music on this drive and randomly I will have hangs while listening to music and the performance while tranferring data between my notebook and the USBs is poor. Anybody know a workaround for this problem or have the same experience or have more details about it? My principle USB device that I use is an iOmega 500 GB what I use on my Compaq 6730s. The other USB device is a Toshiba 1 TB. I tried to transfer the files into my homefolder to avoid this problem but there is no chance as on my notebook is no more space.

Ubuntu :: SMB Shares - Unable To Access External Drives

Dec 6, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 set up on my acer revo, this is connected to a wireless router via ethernet. Next door, is a pc that is running windows XP, and an original XBOX running XBMC. Those are connected via a crossover cable. The XP machine connects to the web wirelessly using my router, and the connections are bridged for XBMC's TV show scrappers. The idea is we use the revo for downloading as it consumes a relatively small amount of electricity. I have two external 1tb drives connected to the revo with Tv shows and movies, I would set up a network share so the XP machine could see them, and the xbox would be able to share the videos present.

I have installed samba, right clicked the drives in question and clicked the sharing options. I have ticked to allow guest access, and write access. This worked! I the shared the /home directory on the revos harddrive using exactly the same method. This worked. However I was no longer able to access the External drives. The UID has remained the same. I then tried unsharing /home, still no joy. Tried resharing /home Home now works, but still the externals don't.
