Ubuntu :: Cannot Mount Partitions Anymore - Error Mounting: Mount Exited With Exit Code 1: Helper Failed

Aug 24, 2010

First of all: it's been more than 12 years ago since I worked with Linux, and a lot has changed in the meantime. But I considered it a challenge to install Ubuntu 9.10 and lateron upgraded to 10.04 LTS without any troubles, until now:

Except my main partition ("/") all other partitions fail to mount. All NTFS partitions from my other OS and also 2 other linux ext4 partitions I've made are not accessible anymore. and, what bothers me the most: I deleted those 2 new linux partitions in the meantime because I couldn't access them initially because Root was the owner (Duh! root is standard disabled in Ubuntu, right?). After an attempt to try to automount all partitions following the help guides I got now big grey errors on my splashscreen while booting, telling that an error occured with e.g. /media/Backup because it is missing or it cannot be mounted, with 3 options below: waiting, skipping or using a command prompt to solve this. I always choose Skip for safety.

Now if I want to see the content of all my other partitions I got a popup telling me unable to mount e.g. /media/Downloads and the message included:

General :: Setup Fstab To Automatically Mount NTFS Partitions - GUI To Set The Mount Permissions?

Feb 10, 2010

I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.

1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?

2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?

Fedora Hardware :: 14, Very Slow To Open Partitions, Folders?

Nov 15, 2010

Anybody know why fedora 14 is so slow open partitions on same the hard disc as the OS and other hard discs. Is there a problem with Nautilus, the kernel or the nvidia driver or something else? On average it takes me 10-15 seconds to open a new partition in nautilus.The system as it stands is not up to scratch and i am sorry to say it is really unusable. Do i hang in there for a while and hope for a fix or do i go back to fedora 13?

Ubuntu :: Mount A Drive In 2 Folders ?

I mounted a hard drive and its working ok. But I want to expand on it. I'd like to make it accessible via another folder, like make it look like /home/cackles/added as well as simply just /added. Is it just like when you mount the drive and add the line to fstab?

Ubuntu :: Mount Folder To Different Folders

Apr 22, 2011

I just sat up an openSSH Server with Samba access and all, but don't think about that.here's my question, and as you read you may understand why I posted this instead of googling it, it's un-google-able.can I mount a regular folder like /media/disk1/random to 2 different places ? and if so here's the tricky part:

1: when I end up in that folder, I don't want the direction path to end up like this: /media/disk1/random IE: so I don't want a link to the other folder, I want the OS to think it's a regular folder (in lames terms)the reason is because I want my openSSH clients to move inside a small space, without jumping all over the place, and be able to use the (...) feature in the SFTP client.(don't think about the permissions their already set.)

2: I don't want it to be a synchronized folder, I want the data to be stored on /media/disk1/randomor else it kind of blows the whole file storage server idea straight out of the window.

Ubuntu :: Mount & Limit Folders Size?

Oct 24, 2010

I have a 1TB external hard drive. I would like to create in it 10 folders:


I would then like to permanently mount each folder to its machine (I have 10 machines connected through a switch, so each machine will have a folder that is mounted to ONE of the 10 folders in the external hard drive).

My questions:
(1) Is this a good configuration? are there better ideas to give individual machines more space without replacing their hard drive?
(2) How do I limit each one of the folders ('folder1', 'folder2', ...., 'folder10') to a size of 100 [GB]? I don't want one folder (say, 'folder1') to grow in size and 'steal' the space designated to the other folders.

Ubuntu :: Ext4 Partitions Mount As Read-only?

Jan 9, 2010

I have 4 partitions. One is Ext4 for Karmic, one is NTFS for WinXP, and the other two are Ext4 where I keep all my stuff.When I boot into Karmic and open Nautilus, none of the last three are auto mounted. When I click on one of them, instead of a window popping out asking me for a sudo password, I get a message as shown below.f I try to mount via sudo in terminal it works, but the files for me are then all read-only. Again, if I open Nautilus as root, all works fine.What I want is the following:- for all 3 partitions to automount on startup;- for all 3 partitions to be owned by me and not by root.I tried editing /etc/fstab, but to no avail. Neither did running "chown" help.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.

Ubuntu :: Disable Auto Mount Of Partitions?

Jan 9, 2010

I just installed kubuntu 9.10 and noticed that several partitions (fat32 and ntfs) are mounted automatically after I login. I searched /etc/fstab but found no entries for those partitions. So I guess there may be something like start-up scripts that automatically detect and mount all partitions on the hard disk at boot/login. Does anybody know the location of those scripts (if any)? I want to disable that auto mount.

Ubuntu :: How To Auto-mount Volumes/Partitions

Feb 21, 2010

I have 9.10 and notice that when I look in Places none of my volumes/partitions are mounted - if I click on them I have to enter my user password to authenticate to gain access. My problem is that (with some help) I have set up rsync so it runs when I shut down my PC and backs up my Home folder from a partition on sda to a partition on sdb - this is great but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

I have done some tests and discovered that if I use my PC and never manually mount my backup sdb partition the rsync does not work (I also have GAdmin-rysnc so I can run manually backup but this also will not run if I do no mount the sdb volume). However, if I do mount the sdb backup partition and close down/restart then the backup works. What I need is my sdb backup partition to be automatically mounted every time I switch on - can this be done? I'm sure I had this working in 9.04 (auto mounting) but 9.10 seems not to like it.

Ubuntu :: Mount NTFS Partitions With A Password Only?

May 4, 2010

I have U1004 dual boot with MSW7 and sometimes want to mount those NTFS partitions for mostly reading operations. Ubuntu makes it easy by a single click in Nautilus. How to change this behavior and allow mount NTFS partitions with user's password only, like sudo behavior, for example? In addition, how to mount them read-only?

Note: I mount those NTFS partitions occasionally and there is nothing in fstab about it.

Ubuntu :: How To Mount Partitions For Data Access

Jul 3, 2010

I figured I could just go in to my Kubuntu desktop and look at the drive. But it has only a lost and found and grub folder with a few files on the root named config-[version]-server (note this is a SCSI). Guessing I'm looking at the boot partition? So how do I mount the other partitions? When I do a fdisk -l I see 3 sdb 1,2,3 (2 and 3 are large, 1 is my boot partition) but when mounting them I get wrong fs type. I was sure its ext3 ( also tried 2 and 4 )? I just left the default 7.04 fs when I installed it. I'm able to put it in my desktop and my server but for the life of me I can figure out how to get at the data.

Ubuntu :: Mount Several Partitions At Same Level In Tree

Dec 29, 2010

I initially set up my filesystem on a single disk, normal, plain vanilla, with a partition for /var.Just as an example let's say I have in this file system a path /var/lib/temp.Under /temp I want 4 directories /one, /two, /three, and /four so I get /var/lib/temp/one and /var/lib/temp/two, etc. So I created them.Now I want to separate the directories /one, /two, /three and /four such that each is on its own partition. I create the four partitions and then copy into the appropriate partition /one, /two, /three, and /four. Of course all the stuff inside of those directories are moved over as well.

In fstab I locate a mount point called /var/lib/temp, located just below the /var mount point, and it is on the line with the partition that holds /one.Save fstab, mount -a and it works. Back to fstab, add a second line below the first with same mount point but this time with the partition for /two.Mount -a and /one fails and /two is up. So yes, I can't just put the fstab file together the way I did. I see that clear as day. Last line wins. What I don't see is how to make it right.

Fedora :: Partitions Do Not Always Mount

Dec 4, 2009

I am running Fedora 12 i686. I have three hard drives in my computer with multiple partitions. Three of these partitions are mounted in /mnt by fstab. sdc10, sdb11, sdc1. all are EXT3. About four of every five startups they are mounted. One drive is ATA the other two are SATA and when they are not mounted the drive order is changed the ATA drive which should be sdc is reported by gparted as sda and the SATA drives sda and sdb.

Here is my fstab:

# /etc/fstab
# Created by anaconda on Sat Nov 21 10:57:50 2009
# Accessible filesystems, by reference, are maintained under '/dev/disk'

in the private partition i've got some folders i want to mount into system as system folders.
