Ubuntu :: Permanently Unmount A Drive?

Jul 7, 2011

I'm running both Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows XP Home Edition. I have my hard drive partitioned with 90 GB for Windows and 60 GB for Ubuntu. Here's the problem: When I booted up Ubuntu for the first time, the Windows file system appeared as a second HDD. My dad told me that I need to make it so that drive doesn't appear or be read only or else he will be uninstalling Ubuntu because of the risk that some program will write to the Windows file system. I personally am not worried about that happening, but he clearly is. Remember, I'm brand new to Linux so please make things simple for me to under stand!

Ubuntu :: Get The Automount For CD/DVD Drive Back?

Aug 13, 2010

how to fix this (10.04 Ubuntu x64):

A couple of weeks ago, my CD/DVD drive stopped working. I'd put in a disk, the light would flash, but it wouldn't appear as a mounted drive. Thinking the drive had finally died, I bought a new one. Same problem.

The drive is recognized by BIOS. I have it as try to mount first in BIOS, and if I put in the Ubuntu boot CD, it boots.

If I put

Code:
/dev/sr0/media/cd-dvdudf,iso9660defaults00

into /etc/fstab, and then mount -a, the drive contents appear and are accessible. However, as expected, the system chokes on boot if there isn't a CD in the drive, and I have to mount -a manually every time I start the system. Ugly.

So this is pretty clearly a software OS problem. how I can get the automount for my CD/DVD drive back?

Ubuntu :: Permanently Mount External Hard-drive

Mar 17, 2010

I've recently started using a 500gb external hard drive for music and backups. It is always plugged into the computer but doesn't always mount at boot-up and I have to dis-connect and re-connect the USB cable. The desktop icon then appears.The fact that it's mount point changes also means I can't share the Music folder on the external hard drive via Samba (WinXP machines say they can't access the folder) and also Songbird 'loses' the tracks.

How do I permanently mount the external hard drive? I assume it will mean some editing of the fstab file? Unfortunately, I've got no idea of what I should enter on there.The external hard drive volume is called 'Music and BackUps' - Gparted screengrab attached.

Ubuntu :: How To Stop External USB Drive Automount

Jan 17, 2010

Everyone seems to what to know how to automount an external USB drive. I'm trying to stop 9.10 from automounting it. Normally I use fstab to mount an external drive where I prefer it to be mounted. But after the last software update karmic (9.10) is now automounting my drive and screwing up the fstab mount. Some how the drive is showing up as /dev/hdd1 and /dev/hde1. I could just shutoff automount but I like it for USB sticks and cameras and MP3 players. How do you stop automount from mounting just an exteral USB drive??

Ubuntu :: External USB Drive - Switch On / Off And Automount?

May 28, 2010

I'm trying to setup my media streaming server, and everytying is going quite well, but there's one thing I don't understand. Can you have ubuntu automatically pick up and mount your external USB drive when you switch it on? I don't like leaving the hard drive running, and I only need to have it on when I want to stream something, but it seems to lose the mount when I switch it off and on again. Anyway to make it automatically detect that it's on and mount it back onto my mount point?

Ubuntu :: How To Get Nautilus To Automount Ext Drive At Startup

May 29, 2010

I want nautilus to automatically mount my external drive when ubuntu 10.04 starts. This drive is encrypted, but the key has already been stored and all I have to do is click on it in my Places menu for it to mount.

It mounts to: /media/Will's Drive

I feel like I shouldn't have to edit fstab or anything like that. If I can add it to my startup programs, that would be great, I just need to know the command to get nautilus to open up /media/Will's Drive at startup.

Ubuntu :: Dd Over Usb External Drive - Damn Automount?

Aug 2, 2011

I have an external harddisk (actually removed from a laptop) and I want do some analysis and data recovery on it. I bought a sata-to-usb adapter. Now the problem is: if I deselect media_automount "media_automount_open" and I select "media_autorun_never", the external sata driver is not recognised and I have no /dev/sdb1 to manually mount. Not a hint of a newly plugged drive in dmesg.

Then I re-enabled automount and then I remounted the drives as read-only. Afterward I starter cloning the hd with dd.After some three hours, the f*ck*ng laptop remounted the partition rw and the dd process went into io error. So the question is: how can I safely work with a usb device with manual operations?

Fedora :: Automount Fails For Mo-drive?

Mar 2, 2010

I think), and when I inserted a mo-disk in the drive, it automatically mounted and turned up as /media/disk. I then did an update (all) an now I am on core 2.6.31-12. The mo-disk will not automount any longer. Inserting a USB stick or a DVD still works fine, but I have to manually mount the mo. I have a feeling that it might be security related, but I am not sure.

lshal shows the following when I insert the disk:
10:08:38.309: storage_model_SMO_F551 property storage.removable.media_available = true
10:08:38.325: storage_model_SMO_F551 property storage.partitioning_scheme = 'mbr'

CentOS 5 :: Permanently Remove Drive From Md Array (RAID1)

May 14, 2011

I installed a distro based on CentOS 5.5 (FreePBX distro FYI). It used an automated kickstart script to create an md RAID1 array of all the hard drives connected to the machine. Well, I installed from a thumb drive, which the script in interpreted as a hard drive and thus included in the array. So, I ended up with three md arrays (boot, swap, data) that included the thumb drive. Even better, it used the thumb drive for grub boot so I couldn't start up without it. I was able to mark the USB drive as 'failed' and remove from each array, and even change grub around to boot without the usb drive, but now each of the arrays is marked as degraded:

Ubuntu :: Unable To Automount Ntfs Drive Without Root Permission

May 11, 2011

I have the following line in my fstab:

Code:

# external hard drive
UUID=4DDD273633F3859D /home/ross/external ntfs-3g auto,exec,user,uid=1000,gid=100,dmask=027,fmask=137,utf8 0 0

When I plug in the drive with this UUID, I get the following error:

Code:

Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: Unprivileged user can not mount NTFS block devices using the external FUSE library. Either mount the volume as root, or rebuild NTFS-3G with integrated FUSE support and make it setuid root. Please see more information at [URL] Is there any way that I can mount this drive (which must be ntfs-formatted) without root permissions? I have googled this error and it seems that many other people are having this same problem, but I can't find a real solution. Most people suggest just reformatting the drive.

Debian Hardware :: Not Automount A Dosfs Usb Drive?

Mar 23, 2011

I have a usb drive formatted using mkdosfs, and it must be manually mounted every time because it says "wrong fs type, bad option. bad superblock on /dev/sdb1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error" but it mounts just fine when I manually mount it. It would be nice if gnome would mount it when I plug it in instead of me having to go into root and mount the drive.

Fedora :: Automount USB Flash Drive -noatime ?

Oct 17, 2009

After searching the boards, I dug through the udev man pages and rule files looking for a way to modify the default automount options for USB flash drives. Apparently, the options are somewhere else. Is there a simple way to add noatime to the default mount options?

Currently, the flash drive is automounted as follows:

I'm using Fedora 12, beta RC 2 in case that makes a difference.

Fedora :: USB Automount On GNOME - Ext3 Drive

Nov 26, 2009

I have two USB drives, one with ext3, and the other w/vfat. On my new Fedora 12 installation, GNOME properly automounts the vfat drive on insertion. However, it applies a wrong command to mount the ext3 one. The end result is that the ext3 drive appears in /etc/mtab but, unlike vfat, is inaccessible to non-power user.

The mtab is: /dev/sdb1 /media/918fb656-8efc-43b5-bdfd-0bd8004deeba ext3 rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit 0 0
/dev/sdb1 /media/49C6-1901 vfat rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=devkit,uid=500,gid=500,sho rtname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1,flush 0 0

Somehow GNOME misses the uid=500,gid=500,shortname=mixed,dmask=0077,utf8=1, flush portion of the mount command when mounting the ext3 drive.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Automount Fails With External USB Drive

Feb 14, 2011

When I plug my USB drive in, the kernel sees it and I can mount it manually. However, it won't automount. I've done plenty of google searches but nothing I've tried has worked for 'GNOME, SUSE 11.3.' I am not sure if it is a permissions problem, configuration problem, a kernel automount, HID, or USB problem.

uname -a (stock SUSE desktop kernel):
Code:

OpenSUSE Install :: Get A Flash Drive To Automount When Plug In?

Oct 30, 2010

Got an old SUSE box from a friend, installed 11.3, got a few items: 1. didn't see any prompts to enter monitor info during install, control center shows as generic. Read about 'sax2' (hope that's right) but can't find it on my system or in the add-ons image. Do I need to hack monitor.conf? how? 2. installation aborted when trying to load 'textlive'.3. going into control center->mouse, the display quivers a little then I get kicked back out to the login prompt. 4. how to get kaffeine to process flv files? 5. how to get a flash drive to automount when I plug it in? I can manually mount ok. I guess that's about all for now.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Automount Of Ext NTFS USB Drive Fails Using Device Notifier

General :: "Permanently" Mapping A Drive In Vista Home To SAMBA Network Share?

Jan 28, 2011

OK, this is really little to do with Linux, as my question really involves my Vista Home machines. Anyone know good methods to have Windows Vista (Home Edition) machines stay mapped to a SAMBA share on a Linux server? I'm using user-level security on the server (Ubuntu Server 10.10), and it (generally) works really well, but I can't get the rest of my family to use it, as (understandably), they don't want to have to type in their password to the share every time they log in to the Vista machines (or my one XP machine left, for that matter), plus the problems when it occasionally decides it's already tried to connect once and failed, and refuses to "restore" the connection, ugh. I currently have one Win7 machine, and surprisingly, with the Win7 Home Premium edition, it actually "remembers" the passwords to the SAMBA shares.
