Ubuntu :: How Do Firewire Drives Show Up As In /dev ?

Oct 1, 2010

I'm thinking of getting a forensic bridge to help with fixing machines and I was wondering if the support was good for Firewire and if so do they show up in /dev like hda and sda do so I can keep using my normal set of tools.

Ubuntu :: Hard Drives (RAID1 Via Firewire) Setup Sought?

Aug 14, 2010

I searched, and unfortunately all that did was raise my confusion level on this. "Grub"? "mdadm"? "fake"?, S/Wraid? Disk utility? So many options, so little understanding! Relevant stuff (Mostly reported by "Disk utility"):

- Lucid Lynx. PATA host adaptor -> IDE controller -> Maxtor 164GB H/D [I *think* this has Windoze on it, but can't remember!] There's also a CD & DVD drive on this IDE bus. PATA host adaptor -> SATA controller -> Seagate 500GB H.D. - The Ubuntu boot drive, currently a 250GB ext4 partition, 3GB swap and 250GB "unused".Peripiheral devices -> Firewire 400 -> 2 x Samsung 500GB H/D's. These were "stolen" from my Mac Book and are currently a RAID1 Apple array. Everything they contained is safely backed up, and these can be considered as "new" drives awaiting formatting. [It's actually a Buffalo Drivestation Duo, but their site was even more confusing than here.

everything is working wonderfully, but I'd like to use the 2 F/W drives in a RAID1 array - So, eventually to the question: How do I tell Ubuntu to use these drives as a RAID array? It seems I can format and partition etc from disk utility. Do I then use mdadm for configuration? Any other recommendations?

Is it possible to show only mounted external volumes on the desktop. I try the method of uncheck /app/nautilus/desktop/volumes_visible. But it hides both internal and external disk.

Ubuntu Installation :: SSD Drive Not Detected - Zero Drives Show Up

May 15, 2010

I can't finish installing Ubuntu 10.04. I have a Corsair Nova 128 GB solid state drive, the 128 GB model of this series, to be precise. I have an ASUS P5N-T Deluxe motherboard. It has a six xSATA 3 Gb/s ports NVIDIA MediaShield RAID controlelr on it. In Disk Utility, it shows up as nVidia Corporation MCP55 SATA Controller, using the sata_nv driver. I have the 128 GB drive plugged into one of these ports. I have disabled RAID completely in the BIOS.

When I boot the Live CD and run GParted, the drive shows up fine. I've got a 70.81 GiB NTFS partition (Windows 7), a 4.00 GiB swap partition, and a 44.43 GiB ext4 partition, onto which I had planned to install Ubuntu 10.04. I created the swap and ext4 partitions earlier, but at one point, that was unpartitioned space.

The problem is that when I run the Install app to install Ubuntu 10.04 on my SSD, when I get to step 4 of 8 (Prepare partitions), exactly zero drives show up. A while ago, I had a couple of Seagate 1.5 TB mirrored drives plugged into two of the ports, and they showed up fine, but no 128 GB SSD. In trying to troubleshoot this problem, I unplugged those and just left the SSD, and zero drives showed up. I disabled RAID in the BIOS, and it still doesn't show up. I moved the SSD from the port it was plugged into and plugged it into one of the ports that one of the 1.5 TB drives was plugged into. It still doesn't show up.

Nuts and bolts of it: Seagate 1.5 TB drive plugged into port: no problem. Corsair Nova 128 GB SSD plugged into port: doesn't show up. But again, only in the Install utility. In Disk Utility under SATA Host Adapter/MCP55 SATA Controller, I see 128 GB Solid-State Disk/ATA Corsair CSSD-V128GB2 listed plain as day. In GParted, I see a 119.24 GiB /dev/sda device with the partitions I've created on it plain as day. I can pull up a terminal and mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/ssd without any problem and access files on it. But for whatever reasons, the Install program and only the Install program can't see it. I'm dead in the water. Obviously, I can't use Ubuntu if I can't install it. What can I do to get this disk drive detected?

Fedora Installation :: 4 & 6GB Drives Show As 3.9 And 5.9GB?

Sep 16, 2009

OK, I obviously did something wrong, but I dont think I did because i checked my kickstart file after installing.

When i do a df -h it shows that drives i set to 4096MB and 6144MB when I just installed the server, are showing as 3.9GB and 5.9GB respectively.

This is my first Linux install, does it not do the # x 1024 for partition sizes?

Debian :: Optical Drives Don't Show Up Unless Boot With Media - Then They Disappear

Aug 8, 2010

I have two optical drives (not SATA) that previously showed up as /dev/hda and /dev/hdb. No longer. I see no mention of them in fstab and catting all the /dev/dvd /dev/cd... /dev/sr.. turns up nothing. If I place a disk with info in the drive nothing appears anywhere I can see (not in dmesg).

K3b tells me no devices found. wodim tells me Detected CD-R drive: /dev/sr1 wodim: Cannot do inquiry for CD/DVD-Recorder. Errno: 5 (Input/output error), test unit ready scsi sendcmd: fatal error CDB: 00 00 00 00 00 00 cmd finished after 0.000s timeout 40s (These are not SATA drives.) I noticed rebooting will show drives if there is media in there. However, that disappears after a while as well. Then inserting and reinserting cdroms gives no messages in dmesg.

General :: Upgrade To 10.04 Opt Drives Fail To Play Or Show Audio Cds On The Desktop?

Aug 6, 2010

First my setup: Hardware Genuine AMD Athlon - 512 mg Mem - Nvida card & latest drivers - 80gb & 40gb drives - dvd read only & cdrw.

OS: Ubuntu 10.04 - tried standard desktop then the alt version now back to standard desktop.

Problem: Both optical drives recognise data disks and show them on the desktop. The dvd drive recognises any dvd and not only shows it on the desktop but also flashes up a requester box asking me which program I would like to use to play it. Nothing happens when I insert a music cd in either drive. Rhythm Box Music Player does not show a music cd available to play but does however show my iTouch when I connect it via usb. Btw iTouch is shown on the desktop when connected. What have I done: Fstab had no entries for either drive so I've researched and entered a line for each.The dvd fs is entered as iso9660,udf. The cdrw is using "proc" as a file system as it's the only thing that will show as mounted in Mtab. All else fails. Both drives show up in System/Administration/Disk Utility (irrespective of Fstab entries), therefore the system can see them. Also investigating through the Terminal shows both drives. how to listen to music cds on ubuntu 10.04. I wish to save my music then upload the same to my iTouch. It all worked so well in 8.04.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Can't Boot 10.04 On Firewire Hd

Jul 26, 2010

I have successfully installed ubuntu on a seagate goflex hd and can get it to boot with using a usb cable and refit on my mac. But I cannot get it to boot with a firewire cable and I have not seen any instructions on how to do this with an intel imac, only a ppc.

The mac does recognize the external hard drive when I hold the option key when I turn on the mac, but I get a "no bootable device found" error once I select it...same thing happens with refit and firewire cable. Any ideas on how to get this to work? I am ok with running it via usb cable, but would like the firewire option.

Ubuntu :: Firewire Application (new Stack) Permission

Nov 10, 2010

I have updated my computer to Kubuntu 10.10 (which has the new firewire stack enabled by default) and now my firewire application is giving permission related problems. I try to read CSR_CHANNELS_AVAILABLE_HI (defined in libraw1394 which is used by the application) to see which isochronous channels are available to use:


With the old stack (raw1394) there are not problems and it runs fine and I get the octlet back containing the information about the free channels. But with the new stack (firewire_core and friends) I get a 'permission denied' (errno = 1) error. I do have permission to read/write /dev/fw* and I even tried running the application as root without any luck. If I read the config rom of a node (located at CSR_CONFIG_ROM) there are no permission problems and I am able to get the information/ What am I doing wrong? Did something change with the new stack (even though libraw1394 should be compatible with both stacks)? Is it a bug?

Ubuntu :: Mounting A Firewire Hard Drive?

Jun 11, 2011

I just installed a new clean copy of Ubuntu 11.04 onto a Dell XPS M1710 laptop. I believe it has a generic Texas Instruments Firewire controller. Plugging in a standard Firewire disk does nothing. If I boot with the device and run �dmesg|grep firewire�, I get:

Networking :: Ad Hoc Network Using Firewire?

Apr 21, 2010

I have several laptops that all have firewire ports. Here is what I want to do. connect two laptops together using firewire across the table don't care about any existing network connection either laptop might have in progress use firewire for an interconnecting ad-hoc, static network link establish file and folder sharing between the two laptops (NFS makes a lot of sense but there are other options) Here is a likely scenario.

Two folks meet at some hotspot with a lot of data to share and exchange. Each is likely already on the net through the hotspot. Connecting firewire point-to-point gets an ad-hoc net and subnet that is independent of whatever might be happening with the hotspot. When this ad-hoc net comes up, udev or deviceKit (or whatever) rules enable the automatic sharing.

General :: Is There A Way Do Disable FireWire?

Apr 14, 2011

I'm currently pursuing a CCNA certification. I need to use a so called "Eagle Server" to do my lab exercises. I have the Linux Live CD (FEDORA CORE 3 KERNEL 2.6.12) and I have installed it on a laptop that I have (TOSHIBA EQUIUM M50-164, PSM57E). This laptop had Windows XP installed, so I created a 4GB FAT partition and booted with the Live CD.I need the CD in the tray every time I want to run Linux. Without the CD, it boots to Windows XP. Also, according to Eagle Server documentation, any modification to the server is available even after reboot. Well, that is not happening to me. Does someone have a clue why the server doesn't save the modifications? Is it because I need the Live CD to boot, even after I have installed on a FAT partition?

Eagle server supports only 1 network interface card, eth0. When I first run the server it showed me that the hardware mapped to eth0 was my wireless adapter. There is no option to disable it in my BIOS, so I just removed the hardware myself. After rebooting it show eth1394 on eth0. I presume that is the FireWire Adapter.What can I do so that eth0 is mapped to my LAN adapter (Marvell Yukon 88E8036 PCI-E Fast Ethernet)?Is there a way do disable FireWire?Please remember that due to 1st problem above, any changes to the server are not available after reboot So the main problem is that I can't ping from Eagle Server to the router and vice-versa

Ubuntu / Apple :: Firewire On IMac G3 No Longer Working?

Aug 21, 2010

I'm not sure if I have a hardware or OS problem. Firewire on my old G3 iMac has stopped working. Previously I've used a scanner and an external hard drive (Iomega eGo) without problems while running Lucid. Now neither works with the iMac, though they both work when connected to a PC. Both the PC and the iMac are running the latest versions of Lucid.

I can't tell when the problem began since I don't use the scanner or hard drive that often. I did try booting using the live 10.04 CD for PowerPC and had no joy with either device.The LCD on the hard drive lights when connected to the firewire port so power is coming through. The scanner has its own power supply.Checking with lsmod I see that both the modules ieee1394 and ohci1394 are loaded.I suspect it's a problem with the hardware. Does any one have an idea how I can go about verifying that? I'd hate to bin an old faithful without first checking everything out.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Connect And Use DVCPRO HD Camera Through Firewire?

I have a Panasonic DVCPRO HD camera with a Firewire output. I'd like to take the video footage off of the camera and put it into my Ubuntu (Studio, 10.04) machine. Unfortunately, neither my Ubuntu machine nor the camera seem to recognize a connection with each other.

I've only used this camera like this with Mac OSX, in which I press a button a couple folders pop up with everything in them which I can then digitize in Final Cut Pro. I'd prefer being able to use my Ubuntu setup with Open Source Software to view and edit this footage.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Unable To Access Firewire Drive

Oct 24, 2010

I just finished installing Lucid Lynx on an iMac7,1. So far, everything looks good, except for the fact that I am unable to access my external firewire drive. I know that outside of the Mac world, firewire isn't seen very often, but I was under the impression that it was supported. It doesn't show up in the /mnt directory of my new system, or my desktop. Then again, I am new to Ubuntu, and the filesystem looks a bit different from Mac and Debian, the two other *nix filesystems that I am the most familiar with. It shows up fine in Snow Leopard.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Open Firewire Capture Device

Jan 22, 2011

I'm trying to view the output of a dv firewire capture device (advc-100) fullscreen through vlc. I've read of people being able to do this but a detailed explanation of how eludes me.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and VLC 1.1.4

The error message I'm given after trying to open through 'media>open capture device>play' is;


Your input can't be opened: VLC is unable to open the MRL 'v4l2:///dev/ffc1/'. Check the log for details.

(and I can't find the log)

I'm not even sure if I've got the device name right so I ran lspci from the command line which gave the following output (and I still can't work out what it is);

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Kernel Not Recognizing Firewire 1394 Chipset?

Feb 7, 2011

I want to enable Firewire for my audio interface. I'm using ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit version).

lspci returns that I have a Texas instruments chipset. But when I search the kernal log file with grep, there are no references to this. I've searched for 1394, found nothing. I've read the whole thing and found references to Firewire_core, but looking online, this appears to be something else? I may be wrong, but my device is not recognised anywhere, as far as I can tell.

I have checked in Synaptic that I have the 1394 libraries installed, I do. And checked their dependencies are present.

I know that the device and the mobo are fine, as windows identifies the device with no trouble.

Can anyone tell me, what universe and multiverse means in relation to Synaptic packages, and how to enable these settings?

Also, should I expect my Firewire device to appear in the Places menu when it is recognised? It hasn't as yet, and I don't seem to be able to select for use as an audio interface in Ardour, the linux studio-recording program.

Maybe I've missed it completely, but I think the key problem is thers no reference to 1394 in my Kernel log.

lspci returns
03:0e.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments TSB43AB23 IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link)

I'm using FFADO on JACK in order to use my firewire device (M-Audio Profire 610) and I seem to have the opposite issue as others who have similar problems. Everything starts up fine, and I can record audio into Ardour using my inputs, but I can't get any output from any of my 8 line outs.

I've checked the connections using QjackCtl, and I tried to route audio from another program (Audacious) but I can't seem to pull audio out of the device (or the computer won't send my device audio?).

Ubuntu Servers :: RAID-1 OS Drives - Setting Up A Backup Procedure For The OS Drives

Jan 18, 2010

I'm breaking into the OS drive side with RAID-1 now. I have my server set up with a pair of 80 GB drives, mirrored (RAID-1) and have been testing the fail-over and rebuild process. Works great physically failing out either drive. Great! My next quest is setting up a backup procedure for the OS drives, and I want to know how others are doing this.

Here's what I was thinking, and I'd love some feedback: Fail one of the disks out of the RAID-1, then image it to a file, saved on an external disk, using the dd command (if memory serves, it would be something like "sudo dd if=/dev/sda of=backupfilename.img") Then, re-add the failed disk back into the array. In the event I needed to roll back to one of those snapshots, I would just use the "dd" command to dump the image back on to an appropriate hard disk, boot to it, and rebuild the RAID-1 from that.

Does that sound like a good practice, or is there a better way? A couple notes: I do not have the luxury of a stack of extra disks, so I cannot just do the standard mirror breaks and keep the disks on-hand, and using something like a tape drive is also not an option.
